Sorry folks, there has been an unexpected and unforeseeable circumstance that has taken our speaker out of country. Rather than try to scramble in a last minute substitute we're going to cancel this month and shoot for the next month.
Thanks - Seth
We are extremely excited to host Steve Campbell as our guest speaker. He is going to show us a great use case for Power Apps in Power BI. He also followed in the footsteps of Phil Seamark and has created an amazing game that he'll walk us through as well. This is going to be an action packed meeting that you won't want to miss.

Topic: Power Apps in Power BI - Record & Save information from Report
Power Platform (PowerApps, Power BI, and Microsoft Flow)
While Power BI is a great tool for visualizing data, one often asked question is ways for to capture information from users. With the PowerApps custom visual, you can pass context aware data to a PowerApps app which updates in real time as you make changes to your report. We will go through an example where users can record data directly from inside a power bi report – which can then be immediately added to the database! This could be projected sales forecasts, user rankings or even photos. We’ll then see how we can leverage Microsoft flow to automate process, such as notifying users by email, all triggered from inside a Power BI report.
As a special additional treat Steve will be launching a brand new report – a fully playable adventure game, all designed in Power BI. This will surely push the limits of what you believe Power BI can do!
