opening a colleague's power bi dashboard

 

I am new to Power BI. I currently have the free version of the desktop Power BI.

 

I am not sure if i have the pro version trail or not, how do i check that .

 

My main questuion is - Will I need Power BI PRO to open a colleague's power desktop file that they developed. 

im not talking about the web deployment , just the desktop version that i may want to add new visualisation to their work.

 

Regards

Re: opening a colleague's power bi dashboard

@emilesantino,

When directly opening the PBIX file that your colleague sends to you in Power BI Desktop, you don't need Power BI pro license.

Power BI pro license is required when you use pro features in Power BI Service, and you can check if you have pro trail or not via Settings->Manage personal storage option in Power BI Service.
