Power BI: If you’re just getting started as an admin

Here are links to the resources that helped a client recently as her team is switching over to Power BI. For additional resources, please let me know what you’d like to see, and I will dig it up. 😊

Pertaining to Admin/Auditing, I thought some of the “Activities audited by Power BI” section in this documentation might be helpful:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-auditing

Auditing for non-admin: https://guyinacube.com/2016/10/power-bi-auditing-non-admin/

How to download and leverage the audit logs: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/charles_sterling/2017/04/25/automatically-download-and-use-the-power-bi-audi-log/

If you have some licenses to our learning platform, so I thought a few of these courses might be good go-to’s for people who are just getting started:

Power BI for the Consumer: This course is designed to get you up to speed on consuming data and interacting with reports in Power BI. This is key to help you understand where your business has been and where it’s going in the future. First you will learn how to get connected to the Power BI Service.
