Power BI Report Server March 2018 Update

20 March 2018

For those who require an on-premises solution for reporting (and may or may not move to the Cloud at a later date), Power BI Report Server is Microsoft’s on-premises solution. It’s included with Power BI Premium and you can download a free trial here.

A new version of Power BI Report Server, that contains several new features, including bookmarking, synchronising slicers and quick measures, has just been released. This release is supported for production workloads, so you should feel free to upgrade your production environment to take advantage of all of these new capabilities.

In summary, the updates / new features are as follows:


  • Table and matrix
  • Cartesian charts and maps
  • Slicers


  • Storytelling and apps
  • Interactivity
  • Ease of authoring


  • Analytics
  • Query editing
  • Performance improvements
  • Other improvements.

Similar to the usual updates, we'll be summarising these in our next newsletter (April). We even have training in Power BI which you can find out more about here. If you are not already a subscriber, why not sign up at the bottom of any SumProduct web page?
