Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Set a Featured (default) dashboard, part of Power BI Pro Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] Remember that part of the power…of dashboards is that a dashboard can include tiles…from multiple reports.…One of the things you might consider creating…is a dashboard that serves as your default control panel,…that lets you see the information that you need…to best do your job.…Or to create that for your team as a whole.…Whatever that dashboard is, once you've created it,…you have the ability, not just to favorite it,…but to make that dashboard the default dashboard,…so that when you open Power BI, it's what you see first,…which makes it really easy then to use it more and more.…
If I want to make this dashboard my default,…what is called a Featured Dashboard,…all I do is select this dashboard, click the Menu button…in the upper right corner of the dashboard…and choose Set as Featured Dashboard.…And it says now, I'll no longer land on the last dashboard…I visit, so the alternative is Power BI's keeping track…of where I was last and opens it in the same place.…Now I don't want it to do that.…I want it to come to this dashboard every single time,…
