Sharing Power BI Content with Anyone by Email

12 March 2018

Microsoft has just announced the ability to share content with users using their personal email accounts, making it easier to share data with people outside of your organisation. Previously, you could only share content to other users with work email addresses.

This is great news for SumProduct – as we often undertake consulting assignments that have required us setting up dummy email accounts.

This can be useful in many situations. For example, if you’re a service provider such as a financial planner, you often need to securely provide your clients reports and dashboards. Sometimes your clients prefer to use personal email addresses, like or Gmail, and now you can share to those people with Power BI.

To share content through email, simply enter their email address in the Share pane in the usual way. As always, we'll be detailing these updates in our next (April) newsletter. Please remember we have training in Power BI which you can find out more about here. If you are not already a subscriber, why not sign up at the bottom of any SumProduct web page? And don't forget to download the latest version of Power BI Desktop here too.
