Hi @anandsoftweb,

 

One option is to directly share .pbix file with your report development team via copying file or sending email.

 

An other option is creating an app workspace, adding all the report developers into this group. You can share your reports with all members inside this worksapce. Power BI app workspaces are great places to collaborate with your colleagues on dashboards, reports, and datasets to create appsAfter you create a Power BI Desktop file, if you publish it to your Power BI app workspace, then everyone in your workspace can collaborate (view/edit) on it.

 

For more detailed introduction about app workspace, please refer to below links:

Our team is having some difficulty with this since we have Power BI developers as well as UX/UI designers working the same files. Since there is no check-in/check-out functionality, we have to rely on letting each other know when we are working on a file. It is complicated by the fact that the designers primarily work in the service since they have no responsibilities for data modelling or advanced coding and they are using macs. Our developers on the other hand, primarily work with PBIX files. We typically have a Non-prod and a Prod workspace for each project so that only finalized/approved reports are posted in production, but we still have overwrite issues between team members and missed updates to prod.

Does anyone have a more structured solution that is woking for them?
