Parameters are one of the most useful features in Power Query/Excel and Power BI, and in this session you'll find out how you can use them to make your queries easier to maintain and more user-friendly. In addition you'll also learn how you can use parameters to create Power BI template files, and also how they can be used to create M custom functions (without writing any code!) which in turn can be used to create complex data transformations.
