Let me edit the Web Content tile

As you can see from the below screenshot, it has few more options inside it

  • Set Custom Link: Please check mark this option to provide a custom link to this Web Content.
  • External Link: If you select this option then you have to specify the External URL
  • Link to a dashboard or report in the current workspace: If you select this option then you have to select the dashboard or a report from the current workspace
  • URL: Please provide the external video URL.

If you checkmark this Set Custom Link, then Web Content (HTML Code) that we specified in our previous step remains the same. However, it creates a hyperlink that links to another Web Page, or another dashboard or Report.

Let me add our POWER BI link as the External link
