Apply layout to already developed dashboard

I want to know if there is any way to apply the layout after creating dashboards? I have developed couple of dashboards on multiple pages and now i want to apply the layout (free layout Left Slicers).


How can I do so with minimum effort. the only option to me is to apply the layout on the new dashboard and then put visualisations and datasources on it. How can i do that i reverse order.

Re: Apply layout to already developed dashboard

Hi Mudassar,


Do you mean the reports? The dashboard has many tiles. You can drag them to rearrange. If you mean the reports, I'm afraid there is a way to do it automatically. Maybe you can create an idea here.

Re: Apply layout to already developed dashboard

Thanks Dale for response. Let me explain a bit


I have spent hours on developement of a PBIX file with multiple pages. Now i found layouts (with backgroud) which can help in improving the UI. But unfortunately I can't apply thest layouts on this existing dashboard. I need to create a new PBIX file applied with layouts and then add new visualisations or data sources.

Is there any way to apply the layout now, rather than creating a new one from scratch??
