As brilliant as it is, sometimes Microsoft Excel can’t deliver everything you need when it comes to data analysis, visualisation and publication.

This is where Microsoft’s Power BI steps in, enabling you to take your data analysis to the next level creating by sharing powerful, interactive and secure dashboards.

These can then be shared privately or published and embedded in your website.

Which makes it easy to explore your data and assess what's working in your services and activities.

 

What you will learn:

  • How to use Power BI’s basic building blocks
  • Fetching data from Microsoft Excel
  • Creating & customising charts and visualisations
  • Printing, sharing & publishing reports

 

Who attends this session:

 Anyone in a small charity or community organisation responsible for collating data, managing projects with outcomes and analysing information to understand what is and isn't working.

It is essential that you have a good knowledge of Excel and know how to create charts and graphs: although this is an introductory Power BI course, it is a complex programme to learn. 

To participate in this course, you will need to have both the web and desktop version of Power BI installed.

The free versions which come with Microsoft 365 as standard are suitable for everything apart from the publication section which requires a paid Power BI pro licence.

Everything is available via the Microsoft store and they offer a free trial for the paid version so you can try before you buy.
