This course has been specifically designed for existing users of Microsoft Power BI, who already have some experience. However, if you are new, and intending to take this course on Power BI Bookmarks, look at the Udemy Course entitled, “Power BI Business Essentials: Introduction to Microsoft Power BI”, as it covers all basic to intermediate skills required for enrolment in this course.
Microsoft Power BI bookmarks allow you to create an unlimited number of virtual pages to which the user can navigate. It is a truly game-changing feature which enables report-creators to design narrative-based reports tailored to a particular audience. This Power BI Bookmarks course will show you how to leverage the Power BI Bookmarks and Selection panes to add interactivity to your business narratives.
You will learn how to create a web-style navigation bar complete with hidden buttons which hyperlink to your bookmark content; and how to use the Selection pane to create slicers which control the user experience, but which remain completely hidden from the user.
The course discusses the building of an interactive Power BI report from the ground up, using the Power BI Bookmark feature. We start by discussing the page itself; its shape, its dimensions and how you can use page backgrounds to add impact to your reports. We also discuss the use of a percentage-based grid and the creation of placeholders as an aid to report design.
No substantial Power BI report can be built without some degree of data wrangling; therefore, the Power BI Bookmarks course also provides users with further practice on creating DAX formulas using key functions such as CALCULATE, FILTER, ALL and VALUES.
We also discuss the benefits of using unlinked, disconnected tables to store narrative data; and the DAX measures required to retrieve data from unlinked tables, based on user actions.
In short, if you are looking to quickly get up to speed on the benefits provided by Power BI Bookmarks, this is the only course you will need.
