Mobile reports for only mobile app?

Hi,

 

I would like to ask, if I create a Power BI report (with PB Service) I can only see them in the mobile application?

Or is there any way to create a link to that and put it on a webpage?

 

Thanks in advance,

Benjamin

If I understood it right, the answer is no, the Phone layout shows up only in the app.

When you create a report in the service you can share it with other users and they can view the shared reports in their portal https://app.powerbi.com/ if they have Pro license.  Mobile report is a layout you design in order to allow proper format for the Power BI Mobile App. When a user logs in to the app, he can view the report in the phone layout.

Hope I made it clear?

Hi @kormosb ,

U can do that. All u need to do is to open any report which u have created on Power BI Service. On the top u will see "Share" option. Click on that. Once u click that u will get something as follows:

Here u can see "Copy link". Click on it and u will get a link. Copy that and u can paste that URL in any browser of your liking.

Hope that answers your question.

Hi,

 

Thanks for your answer. And if I open that link in any browser, it will be opened in the browser, right? So it won't ask, if I like to open via mobile app, right? How can I make sure to open it via mobile app?

 

Thanks in advance,

Benjamin

Yaa it is not browser dependent. It will work on any browser be it Mozilla, Chrome, Firefox etc. This one answers your first question. For mobile app, u need to view that report in mobile layout so that u get an idea of how it will look when u view it via mobile and then u can use that link to see the mobile view on any browser. This answers your second question. Now answering your last qurstion If u want to see the report in mobile then u need to search for Power BI Mobile App in your play store/app store, download it, login through your Power BI Desktop/Service account and thats it now u can see all your reports very easily with one single tap on your mobile. 

Hope this answers all your queries.

To share Power BI reports, you need to have Pro or Premium license. If you have Premium, users in our domain can consume the reports even if they have a free license.

If your report is non-confidential then you can embed it in a web page, blog etc for free:

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply, though it doesn't answe my questions.

I would like to know, if there is any way to see a mobile report via NOT in the mobile application?

 

If there is not, is there a way to create a URL link (that we can place on a webpage) that leads to "open the report via mobile application" and then the user can open it via the mobil application?

 

Thanks in advance,

Benjamin
