BI-RoundUp – Power BI (Usage Metrics – Mobile Apps May 2017- Stream Data Insights Summit – Processing Suggestion Idea’s for Power BI)
Here is this week’s BI-RoundUp with some great content below.
Power BI – Usage Metrics
You now have the capability to be able to view the usage metrics for your dashboards and reports in Power BI. This is a great feature, because it now gives the organization the capability to see how well the dashboards and reports are being used, shared or viewed.
In order to be able to view the metrics you need to have a Pro license, as well as at least have Edit access to the Dashboard or report to be able to view the Usage metrics.
There is also the option to disable the usage metrics for the Organization in the Admin Portal.
And finally you can also build your own Usage Report, by clicking File, Save As, and from there you are then able to modify the existing report so that it can suit your requirements.
You can find that and more details here: Usage metrics for dashboards and reports
Power BI – Mobile Apps Update for May 2017
With the latest update from the Mobile Apps team, you now have the option to use the Shared With Me, to easily see the content that was shared with you on your mobile phone.
As well as the ability now to consume Apps that have been created within your organization. You can either get this from the AppSource, or by using the link provided when the App is created.
You can also connect to the On-Premise Power BI Report Server. And finally for iOS you can share reports and dashboards with Universal links.
