Writeback Commentary in Power BI via Power Apps

In this session, we will demonstrate how to build a Power App for dynamic commentary, how to include it into a Power BI report, and roll it out. The Power App will then react to filters and allow users to write back their comments directly in Power BI.

Webinar Details
Enabling writeback comments in three easy steps

Most dashboards lack any kind of qualitative explanation that would enhance the experience for the end-user. This is especially important in executive dashboards where managers want to read some explanations why something has happened, why is some KPI below the plan, and so on.

There are a couple of ways how to implement dynamic commentary in Power BI, but only one of them allows users to write the comments directly on a Power BI report page.

In this webinar, we'll look at how you can add dynamic writeback comments to your dashboards with Power Apps, allowing users not just to add dynamic comments but also to write back their feedback directly in Power BI. This will require you to have a Microsoft account for using Power Apps.

In the video is demonstrated the whole process from a blank Power BI report to a fully functioning solution of write-back commentary.

You'll Learn: 

How to Create a table for the comments
How to Include the table into the Power BI model
How to Build a PowerApp
Plus, there will be a Q&A session at the end. Get your questions ready!

I've recently been experimenting with Zebra BI's custom Table visual, which is like the native Power BI matrix on steroids. If your work allows for the use of custom visuals, I think it's definitely worth checking out. Planning on doing a video on it soon...

I had a phone interview for a #PowerBI contract, where the interviewer said of the sample dashboards in my CV: "Great...I see you use @ZebraBI!" How cool is that? And they mentioned my top-secret passphrase on the call: "Actionable Insight". I'm in.

As you say, Andrej Lapajne, we spent A LOT, searching and explaining how to do Comments, with Power Apps, and also with the help of Excel. They were workarounds!!! No doubt...this is awesome and the simple way to go forward.
