Gathering appropriate inputs to scope your report design requirements involves identifying your audience, determining the suitable report types, and defining their interface and experience requirements. This module provides you with a strong foundation on which to learn how to plan your report design requirements.

Because Power BI includes more than 30 core visuals, it can be challenging for a beginner to select the correct visual. This module will guide you through selecting the most appropriate visual type to meet your design and report layout requirements.

Report filtering is a complex topic because many techniques are available for filtering a Microsoft Power BI report. However, with complexity comes control, allowing you to design reports that meet requirements and expectations. Some filtering techniques apply at design time, while others are relevant at report consumption time (in reading view). What matters is that your report design allows report consumers to intuitively narrow down to the data points that interest them.

The features and capabilities that are covered in this module will help you enhance your reports to make them more refined.

You'll learn how to use Power BI to perform data analytical functions, how to identify outliers in your data, how to group data together, and how to bin data for analysis. You'll also learn how to perform time series analysis. Finally, you'll work with advanced analytic features of Power BI, such as Quick Insights, AI Insights, and the Analyze feature.

Paginated reports allow report developers to create Power BI artifacts that have tightly controlled rendering requirements. Paginated reports are ideal for creating sales invoices, receipts, purchase orders, and tabular data. This module will teach you how to create reports, add parameters, and work with tables and charts in paginated reports.
