Different Accounts for Power BI and Forum/Community

Hi,

 

I am just curious, but why did I have to create a new account for this forum if I already had a Power BI account?
I could not use my existing Power BI account to sign in here  but maybe I just missed something?

 

thanks,

-gerhard

It might be because you sometimes work with different accounts on PowerBI website, especially if you work on a Consultancy role Smiley Wink

Yes, this is really important. Most of the MVPs (for example) would have a Microsoft ID that's used for community work but that will be completely different to their organizational ID.

In terms of consultancies and consultants (as I am) I would assume that they have a Power BI account associated with their eMail (otherwise it would not make a lot of sense to consult in that area?)

If it should be independent of your company or your customers company - you could simply create a Power BI account for your personal email as you did for your Live ID in the past

I think with the Microsoft or Office 365 Account would be simpler.

I have a lot of different powerbi.com accounts for different tenants and customers... Having a separate forum account makes perfect sense to me

Hi everyone,

 

Thanks for the feedback. We are thinking about the best way to solve for this. Ideally users would have the option of either create a separate account or use their Power BI account for this community.

 

Having said that, we are still working of giving you this flexibility but for now community and Power BI accounts will stay separate.
