Power BI – How to Fix an Inherited Report
A common request in the realm of reporting is “hey, we have this report that a previous VIP used, but the report is really slow and the new VIP would like to revamp the report to answer their questions”. Great, you think, I can knock this out no problem! Then, you open the report. Fifty tables, over a hundred measures, and six calculated tables later you start to panic.
This session will go into best practices for dissecting a complicated report and a checklist for quick wins. No need to panic, this session will help build a toolbelt to tackle any reconstruction project.
