Automatically created reports (content pack libraries?)

Hi, 

 

We have different customers who need the same kind of graphs and data-insights. They all have the same kind of data. 

 

Is it possible to create one "template" useable in multiple scenario's that holds graphs and just needs the customer-corresponding dataset linked to it? 

 

Could this be implementable with content packs? I saw an example of the content pack library of Visual Studio that uses a template made up of predefined graphs which fills in your personal data. Could this be the solution for my scenario? And how can one make his own content pack library? 

If this is not suitable in my scenario how can I implement this?

Very curious to hear your suggestions!

I think that the functionality already exists because of the content packs available when you go to Get Data | Services.  However, I just don't think that they have published the formalized development of these to a wide audience.

Content packs sound like the way to go. However, everything that I have seen is in reference to Organizational Content Packs and that isn't what you want. I haven't seen any guidance on creating content packs that go in the gallery of services that anyone can use.

Yes indeed, there is plenty of information out there for Organizational Content Packs but that's not what I need. 
@Greg_Deckler Could you tell me, what is the best way to send Microsoft a request to implement this feature? (like PowerBI uservoice/ideas)
