Power BI Sharing

Welcome, Power BI enthusiasts! In today’s article, we’ll dive deep into some crucial aspects of Power BI that could be game-changers for your business: sharing, collaborating, and distributing reports. Power BI offers a plethora of tools and features to enhance collaboration and distribution across businesses. Here, we’ll elaborate on his insights and provide a more detailed breakdown.

 Power BI Service – The Web 

Power BI service, the web version of Power BI, is your go-to platform for sharing and collaborating. Whether you’re sharing reports with a wide team or specific users, the service makes accessing reports a breeze—no third-party installations needed.

 

 Collaborating with Workspaces

Workspaces are the heart of collaboration in Power BI. Think of them as containers that hold your reports, dashboards, data sets, and scorecards. When you publish from Power BI Desktop, you’ll typically choose a workspace dedicated to a specific project, making organizing and sharing more intuitive.
