Power BI Weekly Issue 22: 27th August 2019

A very exciting update this week is the new custom branding capability for the top nav in the Power BI Service, allowing you to insert your company logo, change the theme colour, and add a cover image. We've also been told about What's new for SQL Server 2019 Analysis Services RC1, and about the Change to Summarized Data Export behavior with Build permission. Elsewhere, Paul Turley has written a detailed blog about Power BI Project Good and Best Practices, and Alberto Ferrari has written about the mysterious Blank row in DAX.
