For this demonstration, we are using Sample Workspace. I suggest you to refer Create a Workspace article to understand the workspace creation.
Please click on the Power BI Sample Workspace, and then go to the dashboards tab to see the list of available dashboards. As you can see from the below screenshot, currently there is only one dashboard in this workspace.
