MC470136: Improved Upload experience and retirement of the ‘Get Data’ page in Power BI

Updated December 6, 2022: We have updated the timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

We will be retiring the ‘Get Data’ page in Power BI as well as the ability to connect to files from personal OneDrive accounts. Going forward, users can utilize a new streamlined Upload experience and we recommend connecting to files using OneDrive for Business or SharePoint for uploading local files.

MC470136: Improved Upload experience and retirement of the ‘Get Data’ page in Power BI

When this will happen

January 2, 2023 (previously December 8, 2022)

How this affects your organization

Once this change is implemented, instead of going to the ‘Get Data’ page to upload files to a workspace, users can now use a streamlined Upload experience, found at the top of any workspace page. If users are looking to create datasets by importing Excel or CSV data, they’ll be able to do this through the Dataset option under the New button at the top of any workspace page.

What you need to do to prepare

We recommend updating any internal documentation related to uploading files or creating datasets within the Power BI service to direct users to start from the workspace they want to add the content into instead of going through the Get Data page
