Embed dashboards or a tile within Outlook email

Hello Team,

 

Can anyone suggest if we can embed a dashboard or few specific tiles of a dashboard within an Outlook email. Please provide relevant document or blog if available.

 

The idea is to show the real data not a snapshot or a picture within email. Any idea on how it can be done through an addin if possible?

@datachi,

The available feature in Power BI service is creating a dashboard email subscription.  For more details, please review this official article.

You will receive an email snapshot of the dashboard each time any of the underlying datasets change. If the dashboard refreshes more than once a day, you will only receive the email snapshot after the first refresh.

However, if you want to show real data within email, please vote up this similar idea that customize email subscription schedule and add your comments there.

Regards,
Lydia

Re: Embed dashboards or a tile within Outlook email

Thank you, Lydia! But I am not looking for subscriptions as they don't allow interaction with dashboard within the email. 

 

Is there any suggestion or resource which can be used to possibliy build an O365 outlook addin to provide interactive dashboard or PBI report within the email?

@datachi,

As far as I know, there is no such addin or API that could achieve your requirement.

Re: Embed dashboards or a tile within Outlook email

I was just thinking about something like this, especially with Google announcing dynamic AMP emails. How cool would it be to send an email once, insead of repeated updates!
