Manage a 'classic' workspace in Power BI and Microsoft 365
As creator or admin of a 'classic' workspace in Power BI, you manage some aspects of the workspace in Power BI. Other aspects you manage in Microsoft 365.
The new workspace experience changes the relationship between Power BI workspaces and Microsoft 365 groups. You aren't automatically creating a Microsoft 365 group every time you create one of the new workspaces. Ready to migrate a classic workspace? See Upgrade classic workspaces to the new workspaces.
In a classic workspace in Power BI you can:
- Add or remove workspace members, including making a workspace member an admin.
- Edit the workspace name.
- Delete the workspace, which also deletes the Microsoft 365 group.
In a classic workspace in Microsoft 365 you can:
- Add or remove your workspace's group members, including making a member an owner.
- Edit the group name, image, description, and other settings.
- See the group email address.
- Delete the group.
You need a Power BI Pro or Premium Per User (PPU) license to be an admin or member of a workspace. Your app users need a Power BI Pro or Premium Per User (PPU) license, too, unless your workspace is in a Power BI Premium capacity. Read What is Power BI Premium? for details.
Edit a classic workspace in Power BI
In the Power BI service, select the arrow next to Workspaces > select More options (...) next to your workspace name > Edit this workspace.
You only see Edit this workspace if you’re a workspace admin.
