Enhancing the ReportFree
Data visualization is about more than choosing the right visual. It's also about having—or forming—data in the right way to tell your story. You’ll learn practical techniques for incorporating DAX measures and calculations in your reports, allowing you to filter, review existing filters, highlight values, and group data effectively.
