I do a lot that’s not related to dataflows. In fact, dataflows take up a surprisingly small part of my day, if your insight into my calendar came solely from this blog.

Despite this, I like to believe that I’m keeping my finger on the pulse of this feature, and when I learned today that the dataflows team had published best practice guidance almost a month ago, I was shocked and surprised.

Here are those best practices: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-dataflows-best-practices

This is apparently where Matthew thinks documentation comes from

In my defense, the blog post where this guidance was announced was the overall September update for dataflows, and it was the last link at the bottom of the post… but I still should have noticed.

These practices were produced by the dataflows team, and are based on questions and support tickets from customers around the world. Definitely check them out, and see how you can incorporate them into your Power BI solutions!
