We received a number of amazing submissions that showed off the creativity and flexibility that What If offers data analysts and report-makers. Each entry was reviewed by Power BI Program Managers Will Thompson and Amanda Cofsky, and they had such a difficult time deciding on a winner that we created two categories of winners: Fun and Business. See the winners!

Phone reports enhance the mobile experience, with features such as a dedicated focus mode for visuals, the ability to drill in visuals, sorting options, and collapsible menus.
