Pro license required for group workspace members?

Hi Everyone,

 

From my understanding it (at least it used to be) is not required for a member of a group workspace to have a pro license in order to view reports (as long as they don't contain pro features).

 

Did this change recently, because that would have a significant impact on our budgets if every group member suddenly would cost us 120$ a year extra!

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Harm

Hi @HarmVanG,

 

Yes, group workspaces are only available with Power BI Pro. And a dashboard, report, or dataset that's contained in a group workspace is also Power BI Pro content.Smiley Happy

Hi @v-ljerr-msft,

 

Thanks for giving some clarity on the subject. This means that we'll have to look for an alternative to group workspaces for some of our regular users.

Re: Pro license required for group workspace members?

We are in the same boat unfortunately - its very hard to distinguish between Pro and Free licence from a month to month basis as it quickly evolves. Unfortunate that a workspace requires a Pro licence for just viewing of content in that workspace by ordinary members. This was a good way to logically contain different datasets and dashboards without having it all in the default collection.
