I don't have a work/business email id! How do I complete this course without PowerBI Service login?

Can someone give me a solution for this problem? It's pretty unique as it seems that none of my other friends who are taking this course have a problem around logging into PowerBI Service. I don't have a corporate email id and am not able to do all the stuff that I'm required to.

I also would appreciate this information.  Thought by now it would become a FAQ.  

 

Thanks.

You can sign up an Office365 trial, then sign up for Power BI using the account

I'm taking Power BI course, I have MS Office 365 & a Microsoft account, but still can't access PowerBi Service because it asks for Work or student email no way around.

It's a bit confusing regarding the email address.  To create my address, I just used my regular address and appended it with ".onmicrosoft.com".  Example:  johndoe@gmail.onmicrosoft.com.

 

Regarding the Office 365 trial, even though I have 365 I signed up for the trial just to get my new email account.  Don't try and make too much sense out of it.

 

Regards.

Steve, you're the best, I finally was able to sign in with a mumbo jumbo email that Microsoft system understood. Again, thanks so much.

Believe me as a formal student, I go thru my syllabus or any other instructions with a comb & there isn't any help how to sign in for Power BI with a personal email address because I'm unemployed therefore, no business email; I'm not a student therefore, no university email. 

 

Anyway, thanks for trying to help.

 

Cheers

Have you solved your problem? If not, look at Steve reply to my question because I have the same situation no business email nor student email.

 

I hope this help.
