One of the best ways to improve your report design is to carefully storyboard it out before trying to build it in Power BI. In some of his videos about report design, I’ve seen @sam.mckay sketch his reports by hand on an electronic whiteboard, which is a quick and easy way to do this. However, for those of us who can’t draw or don’t have that same whiteboard capability, templates are really helpful. Powerpoint used to have a nice storyboarding add-in that worked well for this, until they depracated it last year.
However, they recently released this terrific “sketch” template that is absolutely perfect for storyboarding Power BI reports. I’ve attached the PPTX file below via Google Drive (it’s too big to upload to the forum), and here’s a blog article and a video link on how to use it:
Enjoy. And just in time for Data Challenge #5…
