Power BI Weekly Issue 28: 8th October 2019

Only a couple of blogs from the Power BI blog this week: Announcing Power BI updates at the Microsoft Business Applications October Virtual Launch Event (tune in if you want to get a first-hand look at new updates), and Increase Business Impact with Power BI and Azure Analytics (find analysis of Forrester's recent findings). From the Azure blog, we've been told about the SQL Server Data Tools support for 1500 compatibility level, which includes Calculation Groups and Many-to-Many relationships.

Elsewhere, Phil Seamark has joined Adam Saxton to talk about Debugging a slow Power BI report with Phil Seamark, and Erik Svensen has written about PowerQuery - Control the expand columns so it includes new columns.
