New Power BI Function: Data Profiling Enhancements

With the new update from PowerBI, it is now possible to get a fast overview of your data quality upon import of data.

Activate the new features

First thing is to activate the new features.

Go to View and mark them as the pictures show below.

Improved data profiling now available

Now you’ll see a new histogram showing your data, even before you have had a chance to glance at the actual data in the table. I find the feature amazing, since looking for e.g null values is now counted and the distribution of them is shown.

When you mark a table, the bar below comes up and shows you a more detailed view of the content of the column.
