Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Create and manage dashboards, part of Power BI Pro Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] Our Retail Analysis Two report, stellar as it is, is not our endpoint because we want to create a dashboard so that we can share what we have with other members of our team. Let's talk about how we manage dashboards broadly. This will feel very similar to reports. First, to create a new dashboard, simple click the plus, enter a name for it. My New Dashboard. If I'd like to rename a dashboard, I can click the Menu button, choose Rename and say My First Dashboard.
If I'd like to open a dashboard, I can click Open. If I want to share, I can click Share or click the Share icon. We'll talk more about sharing later in the course. If I want to remove a dashboard, I simply click Remove and it will be permanently deleted and Control + Z will do nothing for me here. There is no undo for that. If I'm looking at a dashboard and I would like to add this to my Favorites list, which is up here, I click Favorite and when I want to see my favorite dashboards, they're right here and I can simply click to open them.
If I want to print a dashboard, I can. Click the Menu button, choose Print Dashboard. The Print Preview will open so that you can modify the settings and print this just as we did with our report. To print a specific tile, first switch it to Focus Mode and then right click in the tile and choose Print and now we're printing just the one tile.
Remember that if I click in the tile, I will probably end up back in the report, so you'll simply want to make sure whatever tile you wish to print, that you swing over to Focus Mode, right click and choose Print. I don't want to create my new dashboard from scratch. I'm going to create my new dashboard based on the report that we've spent all of this time working on and so we will begin doing that in our next movie.
