Power BI Weekly Issue 18: 30th July 2019

Most of you are probably aware of the main update this week - the new look for Power BI Service. Among numerous other changes, we now see report pages listed vertically instead of horizontally, which has had different effects on people's report real estate. What do people think of this new look/UX? The other update this week is that we now have the ability to sign up to service availability notifications, so we can react quickly if the Power BI service is down for any reason. Elsewhere, Gil Raviv has written a detailed blog on how to Find overlapping time periods using PowerQuery (Part 2).
