Power BI March 2021 Feature Summary

Power BI March 2021 Feature Summary

This month, we are continuing our work on the ongoing previews of DirectQuery for Power BI datasets and Azure Analysis Services, Small Multiples, and the Model View UI. Also, we are making it easier to specify filters in the DAX CALCULATE function. On the Service side, when you click on a dataset in the workspace list view you will be taken to our new dataset details page, which includes information about when the report was last refreshed as well as actions such as creating a new report.
