Almost every Office user relies on OneDrive and SharePoint to share and collaborate on Office documents and files. In this new update, users can view and edit Power BI reports from within OneDrive and SharePoint without needing to download Power BI Desktop.

Feature details

Currently, when users open a Power BI report saved on OneDrive or SharePoint, they cannot preview the report nor make tweaks to the report without downloading both the report and Power BI Desktop. In this new update, Power BI reports can now be viewed directly within OneDrive or SharePoint, and users with edit permissions to the file can also make edits to the report. This feature will make it easier for users to preview and collaborate on reports from their OneDrive or SharePoint files.
