Link to mobile app from website

[ Edited ]

Is there a way to link to the mobile app from a website?

 

I'm thinking along the twitter URL verion `twitter://my_twitter_url` but for PowerBI instead.

There is way to open the Power BI mobile app on specific dashboards/reports.

You can read more here -

Hope that this helps.

No, it's not possible to open a link to a mobile app view. Power BI Mobile is just connecting to Power BI service, you can use the embedded link created via "pubish to web".

Re: Link to mobile app from website

Hi,

 

I am having a table with one of the columns having URL to open report in power Bi app (e.g. mpsbi://....) but I am not able to show them as URL icons (like we can do with the web links) in the table.

 

Any idea how this can be achieved?

Hey @vaibhav_osc,

Hey @vaibhav_osc,

 

In apps URLs are now supported in Power BI Mobile apps.

You can embed an artifact URL in your report and navigate to it directly by tapping on that link.

 

Thanks, 

Maya
