  1. Paul –

    Did you record the three sessions you did in the July class? Can we access those sessions on the web from SQL Server Pro site? We are interested in getting some online training for DataZen. Let us know what you think. Thanks.

  2. Hi Paul,

    I attended this webinar and it was great! 🙂

    However – in my usage of Datazen I have come across a number of issues apart from the learning curve in designing queries for Datazen. A current example is that I am trying to use gauges which require a Main Value and a Comparison Value. In this instance I only need percentage values and thus do not want the delta labels. I can set the “Delta Label”-parameter to “None”, which works in the Publisher, but when I go to Run preview it still includes delta labels. This worked okay before I published to Server. And in testing it also sometimes work okay when using the web viewer.

    Do you have any idea what is going on and/or know where I can post these issues to Datazen/MS so they can be solved?

  3. Hi Paul, I’ve been following you awhile but have yet to take a training. I think DataZen will be the first. I see this 3 session package is closed. Are you doing another one soon, or will this session’s recordings be sufficient?

    1. Hi, these sessions are scheduled by SQL Server Pro Magazine. Given how popular Datazen is likely to be I would expect us to do more training in the future.

  4. Hello Paul,

    I attended your Datazen online training yesterday.
    It was great.

    I am trying to create a Datazen server in the Azure.
    Server is created, but there is a step where I am supposed to upload “Microsoft Branding” to the Datazen Server in the Control panel.
    Where can I find that Branding Package? Can I download from somewhere?

    Thanks a lot

    1. Hello, Mayank
      Thank you for attending the training. I’m not sure about the “Microsoft Branding” package. This might be something Microsoft recently added but I don’t know. The branding package is completely optional and not something to be concerned with. A branding package can be added later to a production server if you ever want to customize the dashboard look and feel for your business but this is completely optional.
