Featured dashboards in the Power BI service


Power BI is moving to a new look, and some images in the documentation may not match what you see in the service. Learn more about the new look and try it for yourself.

Many of us have one dashboard that we visit more than any others. It might be the dashboard we use to run our business. Or, it might be a dashboard that contains an aggregation of tiles from many different dashboards and reports.

When you select a dashboard as featured, each time you open the Power BI service, it opens with that dashboard displayed.

Set as featured icon

You can also select a few dashboards and set them as favorites. See Dashboard favorites.

If you haven't set a featured dashboard, Power BI opens to the last dashboard you used or to Power BI Home.
