Power BI Weekly Issue 177: 4th October 2022

No announcements at all this week, so we'll jump straight into the highlighted articles. First of all, Alberto Ferrari has recorded a 20 minute tutorial on the ins and outs of RANKX in DAX (a function surprisingly difficult to get going with). Mara Pereira has written an article describing Everything you need to know about Bookmarks in Power BI, describing the different use-cases and options you can configure when using the feature. Finally, although not directly related to Power BI, Olivier Travers has written a helpful overview of Row Level Security, Object Level Security, Data Masking and their Business Use Cases.
