Feature details

Certified and promoted datasets in Power BI provide organizations with a mechanism to distinguish their most valued and trusted datasets. Today, Power BI users are able to analyze this data in Excel by using a live, connected experience. We’re adding a new way to connect to certified and promoted datasets that will make it easier for all Microsoft 365 E5 users to find, connect, and analyze data from these datasets directly from Excel.
