Power BI Weekly Issue 206: 9th May 2023

This week we've had a pretty clear call-to-action to Register for Microsoft Build to hear what's next with Power BI, Synapse and Data Factory, with various senior MSFT folks spreading the message on Twitter. On that link, you'll also find a short BUILD promo video from Adam and Patrick - seems like there's something worth tuning in for! The only feature announcement this week is that you can Now use item links to configure Power BI Tabs in Microsoft Teams - the integration that just keeps on improving.

Elsewhere this week, Chris Wagner has written a great overview blog about Power BI usage scenarios: Lakehouse to Power BI, and Sam Fischer has described the importance and usefulness of Implementing error checks in Power Query.
