view dataset content

When using the web interface (app.powerbi.com) to look at my datasets, I can only see how to make reports from my datasets.  I want to view the data in the dataset as a table view (like Excel sort of view) so I know what data is in there and can therefore better understand what sort of reports I can make from it.  Seems like I must be missing something obvious but I can't seem to find out how to get this view.

Re: view dataset content

Probably not missing anything, that doesn't exist as nice as it does in Power BI Desktop. So, couple options, one, import the data into Power BI Desktop and look at it there. Two, create a table visualization in Service and add all of your columns to it.

Re: view dataset content

@Greg_Deckler is correct. Those are currently the best two alternatives. If you want a data view in the service as well, you can suggest it on our ideas forum at ideas.powerbi.com

Re: view dataset content

Hi  @Greg_Deckler,

 

Pardon my silly question.

 

The client has granted me access to one of the work spaces and this has got me confused!!! As I do not have Office 365 Admin / PBI Service Admin credentials, I m unable to verify this aspect. Is it even possible to include only Dashboard and Reports without including Dataset? This is in PROD work space. On Dev and QA I can view the data sets.

 

I always thought that it wasn't possible to hide the datasets in Workspace or in Apps ?
