Attend this session and see Belinda present alternatives to the traditional cash flow statement and cash flow analysis using Microsoft Power BI.
Start the process of new ways to visualize the movement of your cash
Create a plan that can provide information to your team that might improve cash flow
Provide information to that person in your company who is always asking for the bank balance.

Webinar # 8 - Building a Commentary App in Power Platform
The comments feature in Power BI is great but you'll probably hit its limitations quite quickly - e.g. that you can't tie the comments to specific data points, apply row Level security to them and can't extract them from Power BI into anywhere else.
The solution? Use the native PowerApp visual in Power BI linked into SharePoint and have a full data-point-specific commentary solution built in minutes.
