Power BI Weekly Issue 170: 16th August 2022

Another month, another Power BI Feature Summary. Improvements this month include much needed DAX editor fixes (solving some of the intellisense issues many of you will have encountered over the last year), there's now Conditional formatting for data labels for further chart customization, and there have been new settings to influence the Power BI engine query execution (you can see the commit diff for the underlying documentation in GitHub here: Evaluation configuration settings).

Elsewhere this week, we've also been told about a series of improvements to the Datamart Query editor and the now available PostgreSQL connector for the virtual network data gateway. Finally, there is a new (paid) Microsoft Power Platform Conference, sponsored by Microsoft and taking place in-person in Orlando from 18-23 September 2022. Looks like a great line-up with a wide variety of Power BI content on offer - do check it out.
