Power BI Dataflow to Power BI online report

Hello,

 

I have created a dataflow and now I want to create a report online from this dataflow so that it can refresh automatically daily.

Is this possible?

 

Thanks,

 

Anna

Hi. No you can't create a report directly from a dataflow. You need to open a PowerBi Desktop, get data from the dataflow. That will create a PowerBi Dataset in which you can create a report. Then you can refresh the dataset against the dataflow in schedule refresh options. 

That should be the way to do it.

I hope that helps,
