This is the third article from Power BI Designer series. To fully understand this article you need to read my previous posts “Build Your First Report in Microsoft Power BI Designer Part 1, Basics” and “Build Your First Report in Microsoft Power Bi Designer Part 2, Make it More User Friendly” as well. In this article I explain how to publish your predefined reports on www.powerbi.com website which is free. So after publishing the reports, you can create flashy reports very easily. By very easily, I mean it! Creating dashboards is even easier than dragging report objects and dropping them somewhere on the tool! I’ll explain how that is possible. Actually, it is all about the awesomeness of the online BI Designer.
Frist of all, you need to create an account in www.powerbi.com. Unfortunately, you’ll need to have a corporate email address that means you’re NOT allowed to use free email accounts like MSN, Hotmail, Yahoo, and Gmail and so on. But, if you’re a student with a valid university email address or if you’re an employee with a corporate email address, then you’ll be fine.
- Browse www.powerbi.com
- Enter your valid email corporate or university email address then click on “Use it Free”
