Publish to Power BI feature
Power BI is a Microsoft product that creates online dashboards and reports. This update allows you to send your workbooks directly to Power BI via a new option in BackStage View (File > Publish > Publish to Power BI). You will need a Power BI subscription in order to make use of this feature.
Backstage View is shown in the video lesson: Expert Skills Lesson 1-1 Check that your Excel version is up to date.
Improved small object selection
This update increases the size of selection handles when working with very small resizable options (such as shapes, charts or text boxes). This is particularly useful when working with touchscreen devices.
This feature applies to Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Outlook.
