Power BI Update | March 2022

Highlighting uncertainty in reporting is an often overlooked topic. This month's Power BI release introduces a new feature that helps provide better transparency of data quality.

Error Bars

Be transparent about the uncertainty in your data.

This month, the Power BI team have released a preview feature allowing for greater transparency of data quality.

The Error Bars preview feature helps highlight the upper and lower bounds of a data point - visually showcasing a more accurate representation of financial forecasting or margins of error in statistical polling.

There are multiple ways to visualise these upper & lower bounds, including whiskers, lines, shaded areas and markers. The visuals' tooltip also reflects the inclusion of these upper and lower bounds.

Note: This feature is currently in preview and must be manually enabled. To do this, go to “File > Options and settings > Options > Preview features > Error bars”.

Datasets hub improvements

There have also been numerous improvements to the datasets hub in the Power BI service this month.

There is now a new Trusted in your org tab that focuses exclusively on your business's trusted datasets – these are the endorsed datasets. The certified datasets are listed first, followed by the promoted datasets - a great way to help encourage using trusted datasets within your business when people develop their reports, ensuring they all tie back to a singular source of truth.
