Power BI Weekly Issue 195: 21st February 2023

Plenty of announcements this week. We've been given the Power BI February 2023 Feature Summary. Improvements this month include the Enhanced row-level security editor, whereby you can now quickly and easily define row-level security roles and filters without having to write any DAX. There's the release of two New statistical DAX functions: LINEST and LINESTX, the addition of New accessible report themes, and it is also now possible to Set conditional formatting rules based on string fields.

Elsewhere this week, the Power BI team have announced the Availability Expansion of the SSRS Migration Tool to Power BI. There's the release of the Quick Create SDK, a new form of Power BI embedded analytics that enables you to embed an interactive data exploration and report creation experience in your applications. Finally, we've been told that the Export to Excel Improvements for Matrix Visuals feature is now generally available.

Ed is currently on holiday; this issue was curated by Jessica Hill.
