Power BI Weekly Issue 162: 21st June 2022

The Power BI June 2022 Feature Summary has been released, including announcements such as the new format pane becoming GA, the new Data Hub (which is the evolution of the Datasets Hub) and that DirectQuery for Power BI datasets is now supported in Power BI Embedded. There's also more information on Service Principal profiles (a feature for ISVs providing multi-tenanted Embedded solutions) with Alon Baram presenting a video going into more detail regarding the Service Principal profiles feature. Aside from the feature summary blog, we've also been told about the Updates to full report attachments for email subscriptions in Premium Gen2.

Elsewhere this week, and ATTENTION ALL CONSULTANTS/B2B GUEST USERS, Adam Saxton has shown a means by which you can sign-in to Power BI Desktop as an external (guest) user, allowing you to do things like connect to datasets in a different tenant and publish to a different tenant's Power BI Service instance. This is huge news, and is thanks to AAD auth flow updates highlighted by Ross Couldrey. Also this week, Kurt Buhler has written a great, comprehensive blog detailing the Dimensions of Self-Service in Power BI: Part 2 - The Dimensions of Learning, and Eli Gascon has described Filtering unrelated tables in Power BI - a common requirement when working with slicers in Power BI.
