Multiple users working on same pbix file

Hello Community,

 

Do you know what is the best way to work in the same pbix file (not same time) with different people?

My coworker is focusing in the data model, when she has finished working in the data model and the pbix file is closed, I start working in the visual parts.

 

Currently, we save a version every time we finished to work like v1.0, then, I save my version with v1.1 and so on, but, there is a better way to work this? Like git or something?

 

Thank you in advanced for your comments.

Hi Franklin,

 

We haven't found a good alternative way where I work - we do what you're doing.

 

One small piece of advice is that you could be saving the file as a PBIT instead of PBIX as if you're bringing a lot of data into the model your different versions will end up taking up a lot of space.

PBIT does mean that the model will need to load the data every time you open, so it's a bit of a trade-off.

Hi @fherrera

 

You can probably try to work on a collaborative workspace : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/power-bi/service-collaborate-power-bi-workspace

 

Not sure that's what you are looking for but that's the only existing option at the moment !
