Power BI App for Microsoft Teams Now Generally Available
Earlier this month, Microsoft made its long-awaited Power BI app for Microsoft Teams generally available. This integrated app makes using data easy and approachable for everyone, no matter their skill level. With this availability, users can find data in Power BI, use its features without leaving Microsoft Teams, and bring data and insights into their chats, meetings, calendar invites and teams.
Now that it’s generally available, Power BI with Teams starts with a simplified navigation experience designed to help users find and use data faster. It’s also simpler to add Power BI goals scorecards as tabs in meetings and channels, allowing your team to focus on what’s most important and show measurable impact.
Microsoft has added dashboard sharing and request access notifications to Microsoft Teams, which adds to the report sharing and request access notifications launched earlier this year. These notifications help users stay up to date right where they’re already working, eliminating expensive context switching by letting you view reports or grant access requests right in the Teams activity feed.
Soon, users will be able to pin a report as a tab in a channel right from within a report in Power BI. And when you use a Power BI tab in a Teams channel, you can quickly find it on Power BI home’s In Teams list.
