Last Monday, we were given the Power BI Desktop October 2019 Feature Summary, filled with numerous exciting updates. My personal favourite is the new "PBIDS" file format, which is a new Desktop file allowing you to initialize data source connections before a user opens a file.

Last Monday, we were also told about On-premises data gateway management via PowerShell (Public Preview) and, later on in the week, we were told about the new feature allowing us to Refresh our Power BI datasets using Microsoft Flow.
