What's Smart Narrative in Power BI?

A smart narrative in Power BI is a feature that automatically generates written summaries of your data. It uses natural language processing (NLP) to analyze the data and create a narrative that explains what the data means in a way that is easy for people to understand.

This feature can be very helpful for businesses and organizations that need to communicate data insights to stakeholders who may not have a background in data analysis. By using a smart narrative, you can quickly and easily create a written summary of your data that is accessible to a wider audience.

You can add:

  1. A smart narrative for a page.
  2. A smart narrative for a visual.
