Report & Dashboard: Q&A, bookmarks, alerts and data lineage

In this article, we are going to learn about some of the interesting features of Power BI Service and Power BI Desktop.

Q&A Feature

This feature is available in Power BI Desktop as a visual and in Power BI service as an attribute in a Dashboard. It allows users to type in their questions using natural language.

Q&A in Power BI Desktop

The Q&A visual in Power BI Desktop gives us several “chiclets” which show recommended questions/queries. This visual only works when you have created other visuals in your report. The Q&A visual also allows users to enter their own queries and create relevant visuals based on the questions asked. If you add the Q&A visual to your report and then publish it, it will be available in the report if not, you’d have to create a dashboard to access this feature.

Q&A in Power BI Service

The Q&A feature is only available on a dashboard and not a report. It can be found at the bottom of the dashboard in Power BI Mobile and at the top left of the dashboard in Power BI Service.
