Hello guys,
I'm a pro user and i have like 15 "clients" to share my reports 2 of them are pro.
The reports are in several workspaces and come from different datasets.
1.  A free user can see those reports without messing with the data, right? Just using those filters.
2. Is there any difference between a microsoft free user and a mac free user to be able to see those reports that i share with them?

Thank you all so much

Best regards

Pedro

Hi @pedromooji ,

 

look at this.

https://www.powerbigurus.com/2019/08/power-bi-licensing-basics.html

Each publisher will need a Power BI Pro license.  The licensing for consumers is where it gets more interesting.  Each consumer also needs a Power BI Pro license, unless the report is in Power BI Premium capacity.  In that case, consumers just need to be assigned a Power BI Free license.

Re: License

Hi @mwegener 

I think i hoped that you could say that free users can see those reports because, i'm not 100% sure, but i believe some of "my clients" being a free user, they still can see it.
Anyway, thank you so much for your anser
Best regards

Hi @pedromooji ,

 

it is not possible if you are not using Power BI Premium.

Re: License

Hey @mwegener 
I'm sorry to say but i can confirm that my free users can see my shared power bi reports.
Maybe Power BI change something in licensing....

Re: License

Hi @pedromooji ,

 

which way do you share the report?

Is there a diamond at the workspace?

Does the user have a Power BI Pro 60 day trial license?

Re: License

Hi @mwegener 
After publishing the report to a specific workspace, i open it and share it, (top left) by adding the email and i always allow only to send the email notification and never to be able to share it or build new content. Most of all those reports are based on the same dataset and no, i don't see any diamond. 
Most of "my" users have passed already the user pro trial....but i know that not everyone can see the reports. My guess is because they have a MAC or some confusion with many user email accounts on the browser...maybe.
Am i right about all this?
Thank you so much for all your interest

Re: License

Hi @pedromooji ,

 

and you are sure that you are not using "publish to web"?

Could your user please check his license? ("Manage personal storage")

Re: License

Hi @pedromooji ,

 

if you change the workspace before, you will see the memory consumption of the workspace.

But I'm more interested in whether the free user is really a free user.
