Power BI Desktop: Analyze in Excel

Marco Russo has gone and done it now:

Less than a month ago, Microsoft introduced the External Tools feature in the Power BI Desktop July 2020 release. By using DAX Studio, you were already able to create a PivotTable in Excel connected to the model hosted by Power BI Desktop. However, this would require three clicks (DAX Studio / Advanced / Excel). This is why I thought the External Tools feature was something many users would like to use without having to open – or even install – a larger tool like DAX Studio is.

It’s interesting to see what the community has made so far from the External Tools feature.
