Rename a dashboard, report, or workbook
Start in a workspace and select the Dashboards, Reports, or Workbooks tab. Hover over the item to rename, and select the gear icon . If there is no gear icon, you do not have permissions to rename.
On the Settings page, type the new name and select Save.
Rename a dataset
Start in a workspace and select the Datasets tab.
Hover over the item to rename, select the ellipses (...), and choose Rename.
The options in the dropdown will vary.
On the Settings page, type a new name and select Save.
Rename an App workspace
Anyone with Admin permissions can rename an app workspace.
Start in the workspace you'd like to rename.
In the top-right corner, select the ellipses (...) and choose Edit workspace. If you don't see this option, then you don't have permissions to rename this workspace.
Type a new workspace name and select Save.
Rename a page in a report
Don't like the name of a page in your Power BI report? A new name is just a click away. Pages can be renamed in report Editing view .
Open the report in Editing View.
Locate the report page tabs at the bottom of the Power BI window.
Open the report page that you'd like to rename by selecting the tab.
Double-click the name on the tab to highlight it.
Type a new report page name and select ENTER.
Considerations and troubleshooting
- If the item to be renamed has been shared with you, or is part of a content pack, you won't see the gear icon and you won't have access to Settings.
- On the Datasets tab, if you don't see the ellipses (...), expand your browser window.
