      To take into account

      · What are the objectives of this course?

      You will learn how to create a web-style navigation bar complete with hidden buttons which hyperlink to your bookmark content; and how to use the Selection pane to create slicers which control the user experience, but which remain completely hidden from the user.

      · Who is it intended for?

      The course discusses the building of an interactive Power BI report from the ground up. We start by discussing the page itself; its shape, its dimensions and how you can use page backgrounds to add impact to your reports. We also discuss the use of a percentage-based grid and the creation of placeholders as an aid to report design. No substantial Power BI report can be built without some degree of data wrangling; therefore this course also provides users with further practice on creating DAX formulas using key functions such as CALCULATE, FILTER, ALL and VALUES. We also discuss the benefits of using unlinked, disconnected tables to store narrative data; and the DAX measures required to retrieve data from unlinked tables, based on user actions. In short, if you are looking to quickly get up to speed on the benefits provided by Power BI’s Bookmarks and Selection panes, this is the only course you will need.
