Support AVRO file format

It would be great if Power BI could read files in AVRO format from Azure Blob Storage

This is very important. Event hub persists data in a complex Avro format that is difficult to work with in tools like Data Factory. Now that Power BI supports Azure Data Lake Gen 2, this is a natural extension. We need AVRO support!


Connect to Dataflows from Excel’s Power Query

Please allow the connection to Dataflows’ entities from Excel’s Power Query.

There are many cases when customers use Excel and not Power BI. But Dataflows can make the refresh process much faster for them.
