installing Power BI Pro licence

I have purchased the Power BI Pro license, and I also see it in the Admin Center. But when I click on Install, I get to my subscriptions, and there it is not visible, I only see Office 365 and Skype. Power BI Desktop is already in use. How do I get to the Pro version now?

Re: installing Power BI Pro licence

Hi @oliverploth ,

 

"....but how to see the difference between Desktop and Pro?"

Power BI Desktop VS Power BI Service Pro?

Power BI Desktop is a desktop application, installed on the local computer, it is completely free and its role is to model and create reports.
Power BI Service is a cloud service, online access, its role is to collaborate and share.

Re: installing Power BI Pro licence

@oliverploth , Office Admin (In case of Organisation), need to assign the pro licenses to the users

Site: http://office.microsoft.com/

 

In case you are Admin, you should be able to assign to yourself

Hi @oliverploth ,

 

Can't you install Power BI in O365?

Hi,

 

yes, I have access to Power BI, and in 365-all apps I see only the common Power BI, nothing in Start new.

but I see that I have a licence in my Abo-folder

This is determined by the O365 license.
