Power BI Weekly Issue 169: 9th August 2022

A few announcements this week: ADLS Gen2 and Azure Blob connectors now support SAS token authentication (which has been a long time coming), Analysis Services server properties in Power BI Premium are now in public preview (in particular helping those who are migrating/have migrated from Analysis Services), and The Power BI app is available in Microsoft Teams Mobile (seamlessly transition between Teams and the Power BI app on your phone).

Otherwise, Reza Rad has provided an updated presentation on Power BI Architecture for Multi-Developer scenarios, Brian Julius has described How To Create Your Perfect Power BI Template (a great way to standardize core elements of reports across your org), and the folks at GuyInACube have hosted Marco Russo for an entertaining Power BI Optimization Q&A.
