Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

 

Improving the performance of the usage metrics reports is at the top of our priority. Work is in-progress which should significantly improve performance. We should have an update by end of September or October - stay tuned.

 

Separately - unfortunately there are no current plans to add email subscriptions to usage metrics, though I would encourage you to create/vote on the idea at ideas.powerbi.com

 

Thanks,

-Sirui

Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

Hi Sirui,

 

I would really like to see which users subscribed to my reports and dashboard. Therfore I voted for this idea:

Best regards

Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

Any thoughts on why the usage metrics for a published app would not be showing users which have definitely logged on and viewed a dashboard?

 

Anecdotally it seems like iOS usage isn't picked up consistently.

I'm pleased to report that my usage reports, that were previously timing out, are now working as I would have expected them to.  Great work @sirui_sun and team!


   

              Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!
       

Proud to be a Datanaut!

When will it be possible to share usage reports or add to a content pack?

I have a report built based on the origianl where the fitler for hte Report was removed allowing all reports to be visable across the Workspace.  This report is still fairly slow.

Hi,

 

sharing of usage Dashboards is already possible, you could select and use it. I did not check it with a colleague until now.

 

Kind regards

Hey there! I'm currently looking into how to pull the logs automatically, but I'm just at the beginning. Can you share how you automatically pull the data from Power BI? That would be really helpful!

 

Many thanks ahead, Chris

Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

I've noticed that using the ViewsCount measure seems to cause most of my slow downs. I am connecting to a report usage metrics dataset on one of my workspaces through Excel and finding that almost any time I pull ViewsCount into the pivot the refresh never completes. I've waited more than 10 minutes at this point and its still trying to bring in the results.

Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

FYI - we followed the information provided here:

https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-admin-auditing/

 

We have a PowerShell script that executes on a scheduler job daily to extract the Power BI audit log records and writes them to a file on a shared folder where they are picked up for processing.  Note, sometimes it takes more than 24 hours before the audit data is available so we had to code around this to allow for a flexible lag.

 

We then wrote a custom Power BI report that joins the account information pulled from these audit logs to internal data sources so we can show data at multiple levels to track usage and adoption - by department, by title, etc.
