Re: Sendgrid Connection For Desktop Version

Hi @ldrivinghawk,

 

Currently, Power BI desktop doesn't provide built-in Sendgrid connector. You can download Sendgrid template files and .m file from here:

 

- Install the latest PBI Desktop 
- Create a folder called Extensions under: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Desktop\bin 
- Copy the .m file to that folder 
- Set these 2 environment variables in Windows: 
   PQ_EnableExtensionDeveloper = true 
   PQ_ExtensionDirectory = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Desktop\bin\Extensions 
- Open the PBIT file

 

Best Regards,

Re: Sendgrid Connection For Desktop Version

Hi

I tried the solution that you posted and was unable to download any SendGrid data.  I assume that I have to modify the .m file to enter my SendGrid credentials or should the PowerBI file be asking me to provide these.

 

Thanks in advance.
