Power BI Web URL Link

What happened to the Web URL link in Power BI? With the latest update to Power BI Desktop, Microsoft made some UI changes. If you are looking for the Web URL option, make sure your data grid / table is selected, click the Format visual button, expand Cell elements, at the bottom you’ll find Web URL. Switch it to On and you’ll be ready to go!

Power BI and SharePoint Person or Group Field

I created a simple Power BI report to pull data from a SharePoint list and quickly ran into a problem with the Person or Group column type.

Expression.Error: We cannot convert the value “” to type Table.

In the report, I was trying to expand a Person or Group column, but not all of the field values were populated.

Here is the fix:

    Source = SharePoint.Tables("https://taco.sharepoint.com/sites/food", [Implementation="2.0", ViewMode="All"]),
    #"abcc-b8fe-4b23-be01-abc5f2c3320c" = Source{[Id="abcc-b8fe-4b23-be01-abc5f2c3320c"]}[Items],
    #"Expanded Assigned User2" = Table.TransformColumns(#"abcc-b8fe-4b23-be01-abc5f2c3320c", {{"Assigned User", each if Value.Is(_,type list) then _{0} else [title = "not assigned"], type record}} ),
    #"Expanded Assigned Analyst" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Expanded Assigned User2", "Assigned User", {"title"}, {"Assigned User.title"})
    #"Expanded Assigned User"
