Open a Power BI report in Reading View

Reading View

Reading View is a great way to explore the data in a Power BI report, without worrying that you'll break something. You can browse the report, interact with the visualizations, and pin any of the visualizations to your dashboard.


To edit the report and save your changes, open it in Editing View.

  1. Start in a workspace and select the Reports tab to display all reports in that workspace.

  2. Select the report name to open it in Reading View. There are plenty of other ways to open a report; for example, you could start on a dashboard and select a tile that was created from a report. Selecting the tile opens the report in Reading view.

  3. There's so much you can do in Reading View. This sample report has multiple pages, so start exploring by selecting each tab at the bottom of the report canvas.
