Power Platform – Weekly Letter- Dhruvin Shah – March 2021 – Edition 01

Hey folks! Hope you all had a great week! This week I launched 4 major things.

Create a Comparison Report in Power BI

Sometimes there are situations where we need to compare one category with another and need to create a comparison report in Power BI. Then, how we can build a Power BI report which shows a comparison between categories from the same table? Here, I have explained the entire start to end procedure, for creating a comparison report.

During this session, we have an example where we have different project’s budgets and actual information with its different phases. Now, here we want to compare actual and budgeted value by the project. Meaning, comparing one project category with another. So, how to achieve this? You will get all the answers throughout this entire session.

How to Display SharePoint Images to Power BI?

During this session, we will learn how we can display SharePoint Images to Power BI. Most of the time we have a question in our mind that, how we can load SharePoint Document Library Images to Power BI? The procedure is very simple and straight forward. We need to use SharePoint Folder connector to load Images to Power BI. We need to write up a custom formula to build Image URL. Once we load the Image URL we can display the Images in table or any custom Image visualization. Stay tuned throughout the entire video for more information.

Create Map using Geospatial Component in Power Apps

During this session, we will learn how we can create a Map in Power Apps using the Geospatial component. The geospatial component allows us to create a map in Power Apps. Welcome to the Power Apps Geospatial Component Step by Step series. The main purpose to make this series is to leverage all the capabilities of the Geo-spatial component in detail.

First, we will learn what are the prerequisites to get started with Power Apps Geospatial features. We will activate some features from Power Platform Admin Center. Once those features are activated we will add the Map component in Power Apps and talk about different configuration properties from Geospatial Map. At last, we will load some location points to Power Apps Map and build a Gallery and display a specific location to Map. Check the full video for all demos!

Select and Pin Location to Geospatial Maps in Power Apps

During this session, we will learn how we can select a specific location of the Power Apps map and Pin that location onto the map. We will check the entire procedure where we will select and pin location to Geospatial map in Power Apps.

Geospatial Map provides flexibility where we can get the selected location’s Latitude and Longitude location from Power Apps. Here, first, we will create a SharePoint list to store the information of the selected location’s Latitude and Longitude from the Map component. Once we store that information to the list, then we will develop a Power Apps page, add a map component and grab all stored locations from SharePoint to Power Apps.
