M365 Changelog: (Updated) Improved Upload experience and retirement of the ‘Get Data’ page in Power BI

MC470136 – Updated January 24, 2023: Microsoft has updated the timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Microsoft 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 Microsoft recommends connecting to files using OneDrive for Business or SharePoint for uploading local files.

When this will happen:

Microsoft has begun retiring the ‘Get Data’ page and Power BI and expects to complete by mid-February.

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:

Microsoft recommends 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
