How it Works

Every two weeks, we will host a live 1-hour Q&A call with Matt Allington and/or Jason Cockington. During these calls, you can ask questions on any of the Power BI features – Reports, Dashboards, Power Query, Data Modeling, and DAX. Even if you don’t have a specific question, still joining the calls will widen your perspective as you listen to and learn from others discussing their questions and business scenarios.

We will host approximately 20 Q&A calls each year, and you may join any of the scheduled calls for as long as your subscription is active. All calls will be recorded and sent to all active subscribers, so you can download the videos and refer to them later as needed.

Questions may be asked live during the Q&A calls, or you can email them in beforehandIf you have a question but cannot attend a Q&A call, you may email it a day or two beforehand and it will be answered during the call. You may then watch the recording later at your convenience for the answer. Please note that we may not be able to answer all questions in every call. 

There are two Q&A calls that run concurrently (Group 1 and Group 2), designed to cater for most time zones around the world.

  • Group 1: 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM Australian Eastern Time (Sydney)
  • Group 2: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM Australian Eastern Time (Sydney)

You will receive the meeting invite for the Q&A calls for a specific month during the last week of the prior month (e.g. you will receive the invite for the calls in March during the last week of February). 


This is a product is built on an annual subscription, and registration gives you access to all of the scheduled Q&A calls during the year and the Discussions Forum. If you would like to continue your access to the Q&A calls after the first year, you may renew your subscription annually. You may cancel subscription anytime during the year, and you will continue to have access to the Q&A calls until your subscription expiry date. Please see the FAQ section below for more information on renewing and cancelling subscriptions.
