Featured dashboards in Power BI service

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 Power BI service, it will open with that dashboard displayed.

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

Note

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

If you haven't yet set a featured dashboard, Power BI will open to the last dashboard you used.
