Do you want to learn how to connect Dynamics 365 and other Common Data Services to Power BI? In a recent webinar with consultant Sharon Woloshin, you’ll learn quick and easy steps for connecting Dynamics 365 data and any other Common Data Services (CDS) data to Power BI for the development of custom reporting.
The webinar begins with an easy way to make a great report connection from Dynamics 365 or CDS into Power BI in minutes. Then the presentation takes a deeper dive into why you should use a tool called Power Query Builder and how to get the XRM Toolbox which is where you’ll find Power Query Builder.
From here, Sharon will jump into creating the connection into your data, as well as creating Service URL and data queries. She’ll go over the three ways to connect Power BI to D365 and CDS, plus a fourth connection method that is currently in preview.
The presentation will wrap up with some best practices such as starting with the end in mind and working on your M skills so you can edit in the Advanced Editor.
