AGENDA From 10:00 to 12:00:
Demystifying Chart Types and Report Design Principles in Power BI
Failing to deliver a well-designed Power BI Report can be a common reporting pitfall. What good is quality data if it is not presented in a way that is meaningful or easily understood? Someone without any prior knowledge should be able to quickly understand a report without explanation and be quickly drawn to the key elements you want them to view. This talk will walk through many elements of bad report design. Learn about visual cues and how certain chart types can convey data more accurately than others. Also, learn about the basic dos and don’ts of report design and layout, using easy-to-learn techniques that bring data to life.
Designing an Impactful KPI Scorecard in Power BI
Knowing the right visuals, DAX, and design to build out a professional scorecard report can be challenging. Leverage native and custom visuals, DAX calculations, and design practices to build out a quality Power BI scorecard template to use for your business. The scorecard talk will be broken down into three sections. Section one will cover the basics of the report design by leveraging a DAX calculated table inside a Matrix Table visual. Section two will cover DAX measures, KPIs, and conditional formatting. The final section three will cover custom visual sparklines, and design practices to clean up the report for delivery to the client.
