After you open it with Power BI Desktop, you’ll need to acquire a Microsoft Cognitive Services Textual Analytics API Key here (It’s free), and paste it in the API Key text box. Once you are done, click Load and enjoy the report.
If you encounter a Formula.Firewall error during the refresh, please enable Fast Combine. Read here how to enable it.
If you missed the session, you can still watch the recording and follow it step by step, or just use the template and modify it to meet your needs. If you consider building your social analytics platform on Power BI, contact me at [email protected] to learn how I can help.
Hope you’ll enjoy the recording.
