Introduction

It aims to provide interactive visualizations and business intelligence capabilities with an interface simple enough for end-users to create reports and dashboards. It is part of the Microsoft Power Platform.  In this guide, you will quickly learn how to create a Power Bi widget under your Yodeck account.

Creating a Power Bi widget

Click on the Power Bi widget within your widget gallery to add it, or click this link to quickly create a new one and fill in the widget details as follows:

  1. Name is required for the widget and an optional Description for it.
  2. Type your Power Bi email address and password to log in to your PowerBi account.
  3. Choose the Refresh Interval of your graph (default rate is 180 seconds).
  4. In the Enter URL field, paste the URL of the desired graph from your PowerBi account. 
    • 💡Don’t know which URL you need to type? Check the “Which URL do I need to paste?” section below.
  5. In the Fallback Image field, choose to have an image if the player goes offline for some reason.
  6. Set the Default Duration that the widget will appear in a playlist.
  7. You can set the Play From/Play Until parameters. In other words, you can select the expiration date, which means that you can choose the exact date and time that this widget will play in your playlist. We recommend selecting the “Always” and “Forever” settings for the widget to never expire.
  8. Click “Save,” and your widget is ready to use.
