Favorite dashboards in the Power BI service

When you make a dashboard a favorite, you'll be able to access it from all of your workspaces. Favorites are typically those that you visit most often.


This topic applies to Power BI service, and not to Power BI Desktop.

You can also select a single dashboard as a Featured dashboard in Power BI.

Add a dashboard as a favorite

Watch Amanda add favorites to her workspace, then follow the step-by-step instructions below the video to try it out yourself.

  1. Open a dashboard that you use often. Even dashboards that have been shared with you can be a favorite.
  2. From the top-right corner of Power BI service, select Favorite or the star icon.

    You can also favorite a dashboard from your workspace Dashboards tab.

Working with favorites

  1. To see your five most-recent favorites, from any workspace, select the arrow to the right of Favorites. From here you can select a favorite dashboard to open it. Only the most-recent five favorites are listed (alphabetically). If you have more than five favorites, select See all to open the Favorites screen (see #2, below).

  2. To see all the dashboards that you have added as favorites, in the left navpane, select Favorites or the Favorites icon.

    From here you can select a dashboard to open it, or share a dashboard with colleagues.

Unfavorite a dashboard

No longer use a dashboard as often as you used to? You can unfavorite it. When you unfavorite a dashboard, it is removed from your Favorites but not from Power BI.

  1. In the left navigation pane, select Favorites to open the Favorites screen.

  2. Select the yellow star next to the dashboard to unfavorite.

NOTE: You can also unfavorite a dashboard from the dashboard itself. In the top-right corner of the dashboard you'll see a yellow star and the word Unfavorite. Select either to remove that dashboard from your favorites list.
