Power BI Weekly Issue 61: 2nd June 2020

This week, we've been told about the new Direct Query support for Power BI Dataflows - as long as you're using the enhanced compute engine in your Premium capacity, you're good to go. We've also been told that the Page view for Paginated Reports is now available in Power BI, and the Power BI Report Server May 2020 Feature Summary has been shared. Finally, we've been given a roadmap update on what's next for the new workspace experience upgrade in the coming months, including admins acquiring the ability to block the creation of classic workspaces.

Elsewhere this week, Gilbert Quevauvilliers has described how you can selectively show report pages for specific users using a combination of RLS and conditional formatting, Eka Ponkratova has spoken about The secret recipe for modern Oracles describing how to perform time-series forecasting with Python, and Melissa Coates has highlighted the Updated Whitepaper: Planning a Power BI Enterprise Deployment.
