Power BI Dashboard on Display screen

Hi, 

 

I am looking to display a Power BI Dashboard built using a Power BI PRO license on a TV  so people in my organization can view the information when passing by. Am I required to buy a license for every user passing but or one Power BI PRO license is enough?

 

Thanks.

Re: Power BI Dashboard on Display screen

Hi Prdhar,

 

That's a fun question! In my opinion you should only have one license for the user that has created the report / dashboard. You don't know each passing person so you cannot buy a license for them all.

 

Ofcourse when people are going to interact with the dashboard on their own computer they need a license. 

 

In my opinion this is more like a "Publish to web" set-up, so no need for extra licenses.

Hi @prdhar,

 

In your scenario, one Power BI PRO license is enough as mentioned by @jordi-f above.
