How to Use

In order to use the PowerBI Tile, you will need access to a PowerBI Pro 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 authenticated, on the PowerBI tab, you will be able to select which dashboard, list of tiles or tile you would like to have displayed in the LiveTiles PowerBI tile.

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.

Note: As of the 1/6/2017, due to changes to the PowerBI license by Microsoft, you will now need to have a PowerBI pro license in order to embed Dashboards and ReportsĀ
