Power BI Dashboards

A Power BI dashboard is a single page, often called a canvas, that uses visualizations to tell a story. Because it is limited to one page, a well-designed dashboard contains only the most-important elements of that story.

The visualizations visible on the dashboard are known as tiles. These tiles are pinned to the dashboard from reports. The visualizations on a dashboard come from reports and each report is based on one data set. In fact, one way to look at a dashboard is to consider it as an entry point into the underlying reports and data sets. Selecting a visualization takes you to the report (and data set) which was used to create it.

Advantages of dashboards

Dashboards are a wonderful way to monitor your business, to look for answers, and to see all of your most-important metrics at a glance. The visualizations on a dashboard may come from one underlying dataset or many, and from one underlying report or many. A dashboard combines on-premises and cloud-born data, providing a consolidated view regardless of where the data lives.

A dashboard isn’t just a pretty picture; it’s highly interactive and the tiles update as the underlying data changes.
