Power BI Video Series

How to access an App in Power BI

October 27, 2020

Power BI Video Series | Episode 2

In this video series, Trainer Steven Knight covers key aspects of using Power BI Reports and Dashboards, in eight short & accessible episodes. This video is applicable for both Windows and Mac operating systems, and simply requires the use of an up to date web browser.

This episode covers how to access Power BI Reports and Dashboards that have been shared as an App.

 

What is an App?

An app is a Power BI content type that combines related dashboards and reports, all in one place. An app can have one or more dashboards and one or more reports, all bundled together. Unlike the reports and dashboards covered in Episode 1, Apps are generally shared on a much larger scale. They can be viewed on tablets and mobile devices, this functionality will be covered in a future episode.

 

Where to find Apps

Head to the left-hand side navigation pane and select Apps. This tab will display the message, “You don’t have any apps yet” with a Get Apps Button underneath. Clicking this button will bring up a directory of Apps published by your organization, you can scroll or search to find the App you require.

Once you have located an app you wish to use select the Get it now at the bottom of the app tile. This will add the app to your Apps tab in the main navigation pane. From this view you can delete or favorite the Apps you have added.  

 

Using apps

Once you have added required Apps, simply click on the tile of the App you wish to use. The functionality of Apps is very similar to that of a usual report or dashboard with some slight changes, particularly on mobile devices. This will be delved into in a future episode.

The course content was very good and I can see myself using a lot of the features demonstrated today. It was a bit challenging during the morning session with one participant who did not have the most up to date version of the software, which was hard for her, and also held up the session a bit. The afternoon session flowed better and I got a lot of value out of the dashboards and slicing. -Analysis & Dashboards Brisbane
