Last week, Microsoft released the latest version of Power BI Mobile.
It was back in March, when the tech giant introduced a number of new features to Power BI Mobile. A special emphasis was put on improving user control. And the new release has exactly that – a new improved navigation experience, updated headers and the “pinch and zoom” feature to all mobile report layouts.
There is a new Navigation tree component that allows users to access the location hierarchy of data. It has now become easier to find items in a hierarchy and this can be done in one click.
Furthermore, in the new navigation system, which replaced the “Hamburger” menu, there are now direct routes to get quickly to the home page. Report pages will be displayed entirely under the new navigation. According to developers, the new navigation will make swapping report pages quicker.
Other key additions include new report headers, dashboards, and the introduction of a new “Share” action. The latter tool allows users to share links from items in apps installed on their mobile device, this is similar to how the sharing function works in mobile apps in general.
Lastly, Microsoft has brought the “pinch and zoom” feature to all report layouts. This can be quite helpful for those using smaller screen devices.
The Power BI Mobile is a key tool for decision makers, who are more often on the go and need to quickly access insights from their mobile devices. The new update tries to make this easier for users, so they can be more productive and collaborate in real-time with their colleagues.
