Hello everyone

Please see below a big list of things which happened on Power BI this month! My highlights are:

Power BI

-          Preview of the external dashboard sharing. This has been a top voted feature in the PowerBI user voice. If Project team is using it well, we may have great
outcome of the Project uservoice. The access can then be managed on a person bases and the overall functionality can be disabled in the O365 admin
-          You can now add widget in any dashboard, this will allow to embed any code in your dashboard like a YouTube video (why not)
