Favorite dashboards, reports, and apps in the Power BI service
APPLIES TO: Power BI service for business users Power BI service for designers & developers Power BI Desktop Requires Pro or Premium license
When you make content a favorite, you can access it quickly from the Favorites content list. Favorites are typically content that you visit most often and are identified with a filled star.
Add a dashboard or report as a favorite
Open a dashboard or report that you use often. Even content that has been shared with you can be a favorite.
From the upper menu bar of the Power BI service, select Favorite or the star icon.
You can also favorite a dashboard or report from anywhere you see the star icon, such as Home, Recent, Apps, and Shared with me.
Add an app as a favorite
From the nav pane, select Apps.
Hover over an app to display more detail. Select the star icon to set as a favorite.
Work with favorites
You have several options for viewing your favorites.
To see all the content that you've added as favorites, in the nav pane, select Favorites or the Favorites icon.
From here, you can take action. You can open a favorite, identify owners, and even share favorites with your colleagues.
To access your most visited favorites, select the flyout arrow to the right of Favorites. From here, you can select a favorite to open it. Up to five favorites are listed alphabetically. If you have more than five, select See all to open the favorites content list.
Favorites are also available from Power BI Home. If you've selected the Expanded display mode, your favorites are listed in the Favorites + frequents section. If you've selected the Simplified display mode, your favorites are listed in the Favorites tab.
If you no longer use a report, dashboard, or app as often as you used to, you can unfavorite it. When you unfavorite content, it's removed from your Favorites list but not from Power BI. Just select the black star to turn it back to a white star.
Considerations and limitations
- At the current time, you can favorite an app and this automatically favorites all the reports and dashboards for that app. It isn't possible to favorite individual app reports or dashboards.
- Effective January 2022, Power BI Home will no longer display tiles from your favorited dashboard.
