Power BI is a popular business intelligence tool which is easy to learn and use for data analysis and visualizations. Anyone can start using Power BI with very little training to create insightful visualizations using different data sources. One of the big advantages of the Power BI toolset is its ability to work with various data sources. Once you get familiar with Power BI and start creating reports and dashboards with your data, your next step is to share Power BI reports it with your clients and customers.
- Dynamic sharing of Power BI reports
- Sharing static Power BI reports
- Use automation tools to generate & deliver Power BI reports
Sharing dynamic Power BI Reports
When you share your Power BI reports and dashboards with key stakeholders in your organization, you may want to share a dynamic version. These recipients may not only be interested in looking at charts, but they may want to drill down into the data and do their own in-depth analysis. In order to share this dynamic version, you can export the data from a single Power BI visualization to Excel or CSV format. By doing so, you can expose the source data that was used to build a report.
Sharing static Power BI Reports
While dynamic sharing is a useful feature, you may have some recipients who are only interested in seeing static reports and making decisions based on it. In order to do so, you can export Power BI reports to PowerPoint. This exporting capability provides a static version of the report. Another way to share a static version is using Power BI print reports. By doing so, you can simply produce a static hard-copy. Using the Power BI toolset, you also have the option to save reports in PDF format.
Use Automation Tools
