You can connect to content packs for a number of services you use to run your business, such as Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, and Google Analytics. Power BI starts by using your credentials to connect to the service, and then creates a Power BI dashboard and a set of Power BI reports that automatically show your data and provide visual insights about your business.

View all of the content packs for services by logging into Power BI. The Power BI team is working with other services to add new content packs every week.

What's included

After connecting to a content pack, you'll see a newly created dashboard, report and dataset. The content packs include content from the service focused on a specific scenario and do not include all the information from the service. Once imported, you can customize them to highlight the information you care most about. The data is schedule to refresh automatically once per day, you can control the schedule by selecting the dataset.

You can also use Power BI Desktop to connect to some services, such as Google Analytics, and create your own customized dashboards and reports.

Troubleshooting

Empty Tiles
While the content pack is loading, you will see an empty set of tiles on your dashboard. If you still see an empty dashboard after 2hrs, it's likely the import failed - if you didn't see an actionable error message please file a support ticket with the information in the "About Power BI" dialog in the top right.

Missing Information
The content packs include content from the service focused on a specific scenario and do not include all the information from the service. If there's a specific metric that you're not seeing in the content pack, please add an idea on the Power BI Support page.
