The April 2017 update for Microsoft Power BI Desktop, the client software used to publish reports based on the cloud-based business intelligence (BI) service, now features a new data connectivity option that encourages work team collaboration.
The new connector, dubbed Power BI Service Live Connection, is currently in preview and can be used to focus a team’s attention on a specific set of information and help colleagues find new perspectives. “You can now connect to a dataset that exists on the Power BI service. This feature is great when you are part of a team and you all want to work off the exact same model,” announced Amanda Cofsky, a Microsoft Power BI program manager, in a blog post.
