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