Get Group email address without having office 365 account.


I have a Pro (trial) BI account, but do not have Office 365. I created a group in Power BI, but I cannot see an email address for this group. There are limited group management options as seen in the snapshot.

I was under the assumption that Power BI 2 was independent of Office 365. Is it not true?


How can I get Group email address without having office 365 account? How do I share my dashboard and content packs with specific groups without email address?


Please guide.


There is no group mailbox associated with the group if you do not have an Exchange subscription or license. You will not be able to share the dashboard with a Power BI group, but you can share it with a distribution list or security group. You can share the content pack with a Power BI group by resolving the name in the input box (search for the name of the group).
