Feature details

Connecting to data is key for using Power Query. We'll be making several improvements in the Get Data experience to simplify the creation of new connections to help people connect to new data sources and provide accelerators to easily reuse existing connections. These are some of the targeted investments:

  • Improved user experience when creating new connections (progressive disclosure, modern look and feel, and more).
  • Quickly get data from existing connections.
  • Quickly get data from recently used connections.
