Power BI Weekly Issue 150: 29th March 2022

Surprise suprise - Microsoft has (again) been named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Analytics and BI Platforms, out there furthest to the top-right corner. To each their own, but no one can deny that this is a pretty impressive feat from the Power BI team. Other than that, there are no official announcements in this week's newsletter. However, following the release of the March 2022 Power BI update, there have been plenty of great articles across the community this week. James Andrew has given some handy tips about How to Create and Effectively Use Error Bars within Power BI, Bas Dohmen has shown how to add a target area to a line chart using error bars, and the folks at Learning Science have walked through the two new powerful capabilities of the Azure Maps visual: Geocoding and Pie Chart Layers.
