While keeping the needs of Accounting in mind, we will discover how Power BI lifts the lid to uncover the vast amount of data stored in your organization. We will talk about what to include in Power BI and not to include. We will cover connecting to data from multiple locations including Dynamics SL. Once you have connected to data you will learn about data transformation and calculation building. Most of this session covers the critical task of organizing your data to work best in Power BI. We will cover unique issues accountants face like beginning balances, prior periods, fiscal vs calendar year, security, and linking to data outside of Dynamics. Then will cover a few helpful hints about working with visualization.
