Power BI Weekly Issue 168: 2nd August 2022

The Power BI 2022 Wave 2 Release Plan has recently been released, with exciting features such as Query scale-out for Premium, a Quick Creation SDK (to embed "quick create" authoring scenarios into custom apps), and Dataset authoring in the Power BI Service. Other than that, we've also been made aware of some Power BI Ideas site updates that will be coming in the near future, including improvements to the search experience and finding related ideas.

Elsewhere this week, Chris Webb has shown how to create Custom Queries For “Detect Data Changes” In Power BI Incremental Refresh, Bernat Agulló has described how to Build an arbitrary YOY% growth chart with zoom-out tooltips, and Matthew Roche has highlighted a lot of the superb Power BI guidance from the CAT of which you should definitely be aware.
