Can a Report use Multiple Datasets?

I see question and answer from 2 years ago re: this topic, but needing to do this today.  Can you add another Dataset or several Datasets to a Report?

 

To me this would be the only way to create a Large Dashboard with Filters and Slicers, is to build one big report, then publish it all to a dashboard.

Re: Can a Report use Multiple Datasets?

Hi @DanUlrich

 

In Power Bi service, you can create multi reports by the same dataset, However you cannot create one report by using different dataset. One way to work around, creating dashboard could combine different visuals from different reports. Also you can connect to all the data sources of different datasets and import the data by Power BI desktop, then you can use all the data.

Re: Can a Report use Multiple Datasets?

Hi, what are you referring to as a "dataset"? 

 

Within one report, you can have multiple data sources (i.e. Excel sheet + SQL + web crawl data). You'd just keep adding sources as you need them. 

 

The exception I've found are Live cube connections, I do not believe you can connect to multiple cubes within one report. 

 

Does that help?

Re: Can a Report use Multiple Datasets?

Can you provide the steps in importing the data for multiple datasets from Power BI Service to Power BI Desktop? I already tried this but was limited to only one dataset. Thanks!
