Power BI Workspace is a collection of Dashboards, reports, Workbooks, and Datasets. This is the complete work area of your organization. In this article, we will show you, How to create Power BI Workspace with practical example.
Before we start creating Power BI Workspace, let me show you the list of Work spaces that are currently available.
As you can see from the below screenshot, currently there is only one workspace available for this account. This is the default workplace created by the Power BI service.
How to Create Power BI Workspace
Please click on the Create App Workspace to create a new workspace
Clicking the Create App Workspace will open a new window to define the workspace.
- Name your workspace : Please specify the unique and valid name for your workspace.
- Add Workspace Members: You can add the member of this workspace.
- Public – Anyone can see what’s inside: Anyone in this organization can see this workspace
- Private – Only approved members can see what’s inside: People who are added to this workspace can view
- Member can edit Power BI content: Allow people to edit the content
- Members can only view Power BI content: Restrict them from editing workspace content.
As you can see from the below screenshot, we assigned the name as Sample Workspace, restricted members to view (no alter). Next, we also added one of my colleague John as this workspace member.
Clicking save button will create a New workspace called Sample Workspace. By default, it will open the following window. Either you can use this window to get data from different sources, or you can skip this page by clicking the skip button.
We just created one simple dashboard
Let me show you the reports or tiles inside this dashboard
Below screenshot will show you the Reports inside this Sample Workspace
Below screenshot will show you the corresponding dataset. I suggest you to refer Publish reports from Desktop article to simply publish reports from BI desktop.
