Embed Power BI reports and dashboards in PowerPoint, Word and Outlook

  1. Does everyone who needs to be able to view the PowerBI Tiles have to have a license? Or do the people who design the pages need to be the only ones who have a license and everyone else can view the tiles?

  2. I have the same question. I don’t know all the people who might drop by our team site – can I use this tool to allow anyone within the organisation to view the vizualisations?

  3. Similar question. Once I add powerBI tile content to a webpage in Sharepoint Online, how do I share with other users? They are asked to login inside webpart, otherwise not seeing it.

    “…embed multiple up-to-date dashboards on your SharePoint pages and share it inside your organization or team”
    This part needs further explanation.

  4. I have the same question about viewing by people within an organization.

    Also, how you change the size of a tiles?
    I use different Layout or width/height but not seem like what I need.

    1. Microsoft offers new option in Power BI Pro which allows to create anonymous link, or an iframe code you can embed in website. Open some report in PowerBI and you’ll notice there’s a new option on top left of it “File”? Check privacy warnings.

  5. I’ll immediately grasp your rss feed as I can’t in finding your email subscription hyperlink
    or newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Please permit me know in order that I may subscribe.
