Find and connect to an organizational content pack


Have you heard about the new apps yet? Apps are the new way to distribute content to large audiences in Power BI. We plan to deprecate organizational content packs soon, so we recommend using apps instead. Learn more about apps.

When anyone publishes an organizational content pack to your organization, to distribution or security groups, or to Office 365 groups that you belong to, it appears in AppSource. Browse or search AppSource to find and open organizational content packs.

Creating content packs is different from sharing dashboards or collaborating on them in a group. Read How should I collaborate on and share dashboards and reports? to decide on the best option for your situation.
