Learning Power BI content
This topic describes the Learning Microsoft Power BI content. It explains how to access the content, and describes the data model and entities that were used to build the content.
Accessing the Power BI content
If you're using Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition (July 2017), you can find the Learning Power BI content in the Shared assets library in Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS). For more information about how to download the content and implement it in your organization, see Power BI content in LCS from Microsoft and your partners. To watch a demo that shows how to implement the Power BI content, see the Power BI content from Microsoft and your partners in Dynamics Lifecycle Services Office Mix.
Reports that are included in the Power BI content
The reports that are included in the Learning Power BI content have both charts and tables that contain additional information. The following table describes the reports.
|Learning Overview||Summary of other reports|

You can filter the charts and tiles on these reports, and pin the charts and tiles to the dashboard. For more information about how to filter and pin in Power BI, see Create and Configure A Dashboard.

The following data is used to fill the reports in the Learning Power BI content. This table shows the entities that the content was based on.

These entities were used to create calculated measures in the data model. These calculated measures are then used to calculate the key performance indicators (KPIs) and reports that are used in the content. If you want to include additional calculations on your reports and dashboard, you can download and modify the .pbix file from LCS. This file is the default data model that was used to create the content. After you've made modifications, you can create an organizational content pack and dashboard that contain the information that you’ve added.
