Introducing Power BI Home & Global Search

25 September 2018

The Power BI service has assisted businesses leverage data to solve problems, share insights and make informed decisions.  Users often track multiple dashboards and reports to stay on top of all their data.  However, as organisations grow, it can become increasingly difficult for end users to discover and manage the Power BI content that matters to them.

Microsoft is trying to improve the overall navigation experience by making it easier to monitor and analyse key business metrics.  Whether you’re distributing insights or consuming them, you need to be able to find exactly what you need when you come to the service.

Late September saw the public Preview of the Power BI Home landing page and the new Global Search feature in the Power BI service.  The hope is that ‘Home’ will be your one-stop shop for all of your content and a quicker way to dive into the insights.  The aim is ‘Home’ will automatically surface your most important content or let you search for it in a single page.

Check out the image of the new homepage.
