Now it’s possible to add External Content to your Power BI Dashboard… cool right?

Let’s see how this works:

  • Access your Power BI Portal
  • Select any Dashboard
  • Click on Add a Widget in the top right corner

  • We have 4 different types of widgets to add
  • 1. Image
  • 2. Text box
  • 3. Video (External)
  • 4. Web Content (External)
  • Click on Video – Display a video in your dashboard.

  • Fill out the information about your video:
