Description

A tile that allows you to display Power BI dashboards.

The Dashboard view

How to Use

In order to use the Power BI Tile, you will need access to a Power BI account. Once you place the tile onto the page, you will need to authenticate.  This will include the authentication panel opening up on the page allowing you to sign into your account.  Once you have authenticated, on the Power BI tab, you will be able to select which dashboard, list of tiles or tile which you would like to display on your dashboard.

The Tile View

In addition, you will have the ability to also embed reports into your LiveTiles page by using the drop down box.  This allows you to embed a filterable and intractable report into your project.

The Report View

Note: When signing into this tile for the first time, you may be prompted to allow for access for LiveTiles production. This will ask you for various permissions. Due to how the API for authentication works, in that the same API is used for Email, Meetings and Power BI, it will need to be approved. Once this has been approved, you will have granted access across all browsers. As of the 1/6/2017, due to changes to the Power BI license by Microsoft, you will now need to have a Power BI pro license in order to embed Dashboards and Reports
