Today, I would like to discuss my experience and knowledge about publishing a Power BI report on Microsoft Teams. As a Power BI enthusiast, I have found it tremendously helpful to share my reports directly with my team through Teams. This not only simplifies collaboration but also guarantees that my team members have immediate access to the necessary data.

Before we dive into the steps, let me give you a quick overview of Power BI and Microsoft Teams. Power BI is a business analytics tool that allows you to visualize your data and share insights across your organization. On the other hand, Microsoft Teams is a collaboration platform that brings together chat, meetings, files, and apps in one place.

Step 1: Prepare your Power BI Report

The first step is to create and prepare your Power BI report. Make sure you have all the necessary data connections and visualizations in place. This is your chance to add personal touches and commentary to the report, giving it a unique touch.

Step 2: Publish to Power BI Service

Once your report is ready, you need to publish it to the Power BI service. This is where you can store, share, and manage your Power BI reports. Simply click on the “Publish” button in Power BI Desktop and select the workspace where you want to publish your report.

Step 3: Add Power BI Tab in Teams

Now that your report is published, it’s time to add it to Microsoft Teams. Open Microsoft Teams and navigate to the team or channel where you want to add the report. Click on the “+” icon to add a new tab, and select “Power BI” from the list of available apps.

Step 4: Connect to your Power BI Report

After selecting the Power BI app, you’ll be prompted to connect to your Power BI report. Choose the workspace and report you want to add. You can also select specific pages or visuals to display in Teams.

Step 5: Customize the Power BI Tab

Once your report is connected, you have the option to customize the Power BI tab in Teams. You can change the tab name, set a default landing page, and even adjust the size of the tab to fit your needs.

Step 6: Collaborate and Share Insights

Now that your Power BI report is published and added to Teams, you can start collaborating with your team. Share the tab with your teammates, and they’ll have immediate access to the report. They can view, interact, and even analyze the data within Teams, without the need to switch between different applications.


By publishing your Power BI report to Microsoft Teams, you can enhance collaboration and ensure that your team members have easy access to the insights they need. It’s a powerful way to share data-driven decisions and drive better outcomes. So why not give it a try and create a seamless experience for your team!
