I have had the invite through to view the Power BI preview today (Get yours here). The first thing I wanted to do was get some reports up and start displaying them through my Surface and its Power BI App.
The app comes pre-installed with samples but to link it up with your own site you need to hit browse from the app menu. From there you can add a location. What caught me out was where do i navigate to to get my Power BI preview reports?
Well it is hidden away in the documentation here that you don’t try and navigate directly to your Power BI site as I did but you directly give the SharePoint site and it will pick up the Power BI app from there.
From there you can navigate to the reports you have uploaded to your preview site and favourite the ones you want to appear on the home screen. The couple I have on there can be seen here:
You can control which sheets get displayed by changing the browser view options of the workbook, as described here
More to come on Power BI shortly..
