Power BI Tiles allows you to add dashboards and reports to your Office 365 documents.
Microsoft wrote this detailed step-by-step blog post explaining how to use our new add-in.
But what exactly is a Tile?
A tile is a snapshot of your data pinned to the dashboard. A tile can be created from a report, from a dataset, from another dashboard, or from the Q&A box. (source: Dashboard tiles in Power BI)
Why is this app so cool?
You no longer need to take snapshots of your visualizations and update your documents before a meeting or presentation. This new add-in allows you to create dynamic documents with “refreshable” PowerBI tiles that you can share with other people even if they don’t have the “PowerBI Tiles” application installed.
