Microsoft Business Applications Summit – Australia
By: Collin Quiring
June 10 and 11 in Atlanta was the Microsoft Business Applications Summit. It was a great time of learning more and diving deeper into the Power Platform and Dynamics, and for me in particular, Power BI.
There is another Summit for Microsoft Business Applications in August. This time in Melbourne, Australia and the dates are August 21-23! More information about the summit can be found here: https://www.australiasummit.com
The Power Platform (Power BI, Power Apps, Flow) and Dynamics (F&O, AX, CRM, NAV, Business Central and GP at least) and will be topics of interest once again. If you are interested in learning more about one of those topics and to have discussions with other people using these tools in the real world this is the event for you! I have always enjoyed learning new things from the sessions when I attend but I also learn from the people I end up meeting during lunch, breaks or sitting next to somebody between sessions.
And, I have been graciously awarded a speaker slot at this event! My session will be on the Administration of Power BI. More specifically, here is my session’s information:

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
(AUSD03) The Admin Portal for Power BI
Collin Quiring, MBA, OPM3, PMP, MCTS, MCT, CIRM – Managing Partner, EPM Strategy
Have you ever wondered why you can share a Dashboard or Report with one person or another? How about why you can or can’t print? Or, perhaps some visuals on a report are blocked and you aren’t sure why.
The Admin Portal is full of interesting settings that can add (or remove) security and make life easier (or harder) for some users.
This might not be the most razzle-dazzle of presentations but it is about the core of Power BI. This is about the settings that you should know about if you are a Power User and absolutely should know about if you are a Power BI Administrator. OR, if you are an O365 Administrator, and not the reporting/Power BI person, why haven’t you assigned a separate Power BI Administrator (with no general O365 Administration)?
This presentation will be a step-by-step through most of the settings. We can’t get through every single setting during a single presentation, but we will cover the ones that most commonly cause issues (whether intended or not) for casual users and Power Users alike.
