Enable the Power BI developer tools

if you want more control over the visualisation you can create in PowerBI take a look at the new developer tools.

You enable these by signing into your PowerBI environment and appending:

?devToolsEnabled=true

to the end of the URL.

The browser should refresh.

That will reveal a new menu option under the COG called Dev Tools.

A new tab will open and you’ll see the developer environment.

Take a look at the above video to see what’s involved in getting started with this environment.

A bit geeky I know and not for everyone but it should reinforce the point how important software (i.e. coding) skills are fast becoming. It should also highlight the opportunities that abound in this new environment and how easy it is to get started.
