- Power BI Dataflows September 2019 Feature Summary
- Power BI Service and Mobile August 2019 feature summary
- Power BI Desktop September 2019 Feature Summary
- Power BI Developer community August 2019 update

Issue 24: 10th September 2019
There's been very little from the Power BI team in the last week; in fact, nothing at all at the time of curating this newsletter! Here is this week's highlighted content: Soheil Bakhshi has very helpfully demystified all the different ways of authoring reports within the Power BI ecosystem, Michal Dvorak has written an interesting article on Transitive Closure in Power Query, and John and Jason from the BiFocal show share an Interview with Marco Russo in the latest episode of their podcast.
Issue 23: 3rd September 2019
Three updates for you all this week: Maya Shenhav has introduced the new Power BI mobile apps look (in preview), and Christopher Finlan has described What's new for SQL Server 2019 Reporting Services RC1 and announced that URL parameters for Paginated Reports are now available. Elsewhere, Patrick Leblanc has detailed some data modeling best practices in Part 1 of a (presumably) multi-part series, and Ken Puls has been wondering Do Data Types Matter in Power Query?
Issue 22: 27th August 2019
A very exciting update this week is the new custom branding capability for the top nav in the Power BI Service, allowing you to insert your company logo, change the theme colour, and add a cover image. We've also been told about What's new for SQL Server 2019 Analysis Services RC1, and about the Change to Summarized Data Export behavior with Build permission. Elsewhere, Paul Turley has written a detailed blog about Power BI Project Good and Best Practices, and Alberto Ferrari has written about the mysterious Blank row in DAX.
