Editing and reading mode

Hi All,

I am very new to Power BI and I am looking for a certain kind of role in Power BI.
I came across 2 modes (Reading and editing). 

I was looking for something like drag and drop from datasets and apply filters and save. He shouldnt be able to edit existing datasets or remove.

 

In Reading mode, I can get most of the things, however not able to drag and drop.

In Edit mode, I can delete and edit datasets.

 

I am looking for a mixture of both

 

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

Re: Editing and reading mode

So you would like to:

Create new visuals on existing datasets

Create new filters and interact with the visuals

 

And you do not want to: edit or delete the datasets themselves..

 

Is that accurate?

 

Such a mode does not explicityly exist in Power BI.. you can acheive it using organizational contnet packs, but I would discourage it as we are moving away from them over the longer term.

 

We have a backlog item to enable you to share datasets, where others can only create visuals/filters without editing the dataset. I do not have a firm timeline yet.

Hi Ajay,

 

Yes. I was looking for something like that.
I was going through the options of content pack and it seems I wont be able to achieve it through Content pack too

They are dealing with creator modifying, deleting etc and sharing with users.
Modifying specific nrights which I was looking for doesnt seem to be a part of it.
