Get data from the real world with the Power BI mobile apps
Power BI mobile apps can connect the real world directly to related BI information, in a number of different ways.
QR codes for tiles
Create a QR code for a report, or a tile in a dashboard, and put the QR code anywhere you want. When your colleagues scan the code with their iPhones, Android phones, or the Power BI for Mixed Reality app, they see the tile you've associated with that QR code. On an iPhone, they see the tile in augmented reality.
