As mentioned, these best practices refer to methods and techniques made and recommended by our expertise from working on hundreds of BI projects with customers around the world to get the maximum value out of your dashboards and reports. These 12 key BI considerations hold all of the facts you need to hit the ground running with your newfound data-powered organizational strategies, including practical advice on business intelligence dashboard design.
Sometimes the fastest way to get an answer from your data is to ask a question using natural language. The Q&A feature in Power BI lets you explore your data in your own words. The first part of this article shows how you use Q&A in dashboards in the Power BI service. The second part shows what you can do with Q&A when creating reports in either the Power BI service or Power BI Desktop. For more information, see Q&A for Power BI business users.
The Q&A question box is where you type your question using natural language. It's located in the upper-left corner of your dashboard. Don't see the Q&A box? See Considerations and troubleshooting in the Q&A for for Power BI business users article. Q&A recognizes the words you type and figures out where, and in which dataset, to find the answer. Q&A also helps you form your question with auto-completion, restatement, and other textual and visual aids.
A tile is a snapshot of your data, pinned to the dashboard. You can create tiles from a report, dashboard, the Q&A box, Excel, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) reports, and more. This screenshot shows many different tiles pinned to a dashboard.
If the original visualization used to create the tile changes, the tile doesn't change. For example, if you pinned a line chart from a report and then you changed the line chart to a bar chart, the dashboard tile continues to show a line chart. The data refreshes, but the visualization type does not.
Out of the box, the admin analytics that are part of the Power Platform admin center provide you with environment-level analytics based on your usage for the past 28 days. As your adoption grows, you might need customized dashboards that show you more insights and allow you to apply richer filters to your data over a longer period of time.
Usage metrics help you understand the impact of your dashboards and reports. When you run either dashboard usage metrics or report usage metrics, you discover how those dashboards and reports are being used throughout your organization, who's using them, and for what purpose. This article outlines usage metrics reports for your My workspace.
Usage metrics reports are read-only. However, you can copy a usage metrics report. Copying creates a standard Power BI report that you can edit. You can also build your own reports in Power BI Desktop based on the underlying dataset, which contains usage metrics for all dashboards or all reports in a workspace. To begin with, the copied report shows metrics just for the selected dashboard or report. You can remove the default filter and have access to the underlying dataset, with all the usage metrics of the selected workspace. You may even see the names of specific users, if your admin has allowed that.
Knowing how your content is being used helps you demonstrate your impact and prioritize your efforts. Your usage metrics may show that one of your reports is used daily by a huge segment of the organization and it may show that a dashboard you created isn't being viewed at all. This type of feedback is invaluable in guiding your work efforts.
Usage metrics reports don't show up in Recent, Workspaces, Favorites, or other content lists. They can't be added to an app. If you pin a tile from a usage metrics report to a dashboard, you can't add that dashboard to an app.
Use Save as to convert the usage metrics report to a regular Power BI report that you can customize to meet your specific needs. Better yet, the underlying dataset includes the usage details for all dashboards or reports in the workspace. This opens up more possibilities. You could, for example, create a report that compares the dashboards in your workspace, based on usage. Or you could create a usage metrics dashboard for your Power BI app by aggregating usage across all the content distributed within that app. See how to remove the filter and see all usage metrics for the workspace later in this article.
A: The usage metrics report only includes reports (or dashboards) that have been accessed in the past 90 days. If a report (or dashboard) doesn't show up, likely it hasn't been used in more than 90 days.
The healthcare industry deals with large amounts of critical data: hospital admission and discharge rates, costs, staff allocations, insurance claims, appointment attendance, no-show rates, and more. Healthcare dashboards keep that information accessible, understandable, and secure so clinicians, office administrators, and other healthcare staff can focus on improving patient outcomes.
This article explains how to set up and use a system dashboard that references a Power BI report or dashboard in a model-driven app. System administrators and system customizers can create system reports and dashboards, which can be made available to model-driven app users. Users need to have the relevant Power BI license and authorization to consume content. Read more about relevant Power BI licenses at Power BI pricing.
The aim of this article is to orient you to the Power BI service: what the different elements are, how they work together, and how you can work with them. You may get more out of it if you've already signed up for the Power BI service and added some data. As a designer, your typical workflow is usually to start by creating reports in Power BI Desktop. Then you publish them to the Power BI service, where you can continue modifying them. You also create the dashboards based on your reports in the Power BI service.
It's not always easy to figure out which workspace and dashboard are active, so Power BI shows you the workspace and the dashboard title. In this example, we see the workspace (My workspace) and the dashboard title (Store Sales Overview). If we opened a report, the name of the report would be displayed.
If a Cisco Meraki device has issues with connectivity to the dashboard, the dashboard should show an alert. These alerts can be viewed by the device in question from your devices list or adding the Alerts column to your list of devices. Reviewing and correcting any alerts will help your network's stability.
If a device has not checked into the dashboard after several minutes since being powered on, but it is associated with a dashboard network and there is other Meraki equipment checking into the dashboard, refer to the device's local status page for the next steps in troubleshooting.
A device will download its latest configuration every ten minutes. This alert will be displayed if a device is currently checking into dashboard but hasn't downloaded its configuration in the last hour. If this happens, the status icon under the device on its status page will change color to yellow, but you would expect the historical connectivity data for the device to show a green color.
