Generally, there are two type of insights in Power BI. One that run on entire dataset, and the other is to run insights on one particular report. Later one allows you to further drill down the insights too. In this article, we will show you, How to get quick insights in Power BI (later one) with practical example.
For this demonstration, we are going to use Sixth dashboard. To view this, please click on My Workspace, and then go to the Dashboard – Select Sixth Dashboard
As you can see from the below screenshot, it has only one Pie Chart.
Quick insights in Power BI
In order to get the Quick Insights of a report, you have to click … on the top right corner, and select Open in Focus Mode. Remember, in some versions, there is a button beside that … to enter into focus mode.
Once your report is in Focus mode, you can see the Get Insights option on the Top right. Click that button to display the insights based on this report.
Now you can see the insights based on this report
Like any other report, Power BI allows you to pin these visuals to the dashboard. In order to Pin any individual visual, hover over that visual will show you the Pin Visual button that we shown in below screenshot
Or, if you want to drill down further deeper into the report then select any report. For the demo purpose, we selected the Donut chart
Once you selected, Power Bi will start displaying insights based on this report.
If you want to Pin this report to the dashboard then, click the Pin Visual button on the Top right corner.
Clicking Pin Visual button will open following window. Let me select Existing dashboard i.e., Sixth Dashboard. I suggest you to refer Add Report to dashboard or Pin Report to dashboard articles to understand theses settings.
Within the Fifth dashboard, you can see the Donut Chart that we pinned before.
