Power BI business users spend a lot of time viewing dashboards. Dashboards are designed to highlight specific information from the underlying reports and datasets. And Power BI business users rely on that information for tracking, monitoring, answering questions, testing, and more -- in order to make data-driven business decisions.


A Power BI Pro or Premium license is required for both sharing a dashboard and viewing a shared dashboard. Which license do I have?.

Open a dashboard

Dashboards can be opened from many locations in the Power BI service. One way to open a dashboard is to select and open a workspace.

From the left navigation pane select Workspace.

If that workspace contains a dashboard, you'll see the following icon.

Once you've identified a dashboard, open it by selecting it and the dashboard will fill your Power BI canvas.

You may find dashboards in all of the containers in the nav pane.
