NOTE: The "Add widget" feature has been renamed "Add tile".
The Add tile control lets you directly add an image, text box, video, streaming data, or web code to your dashboard.
Select Add tile from the top menu bar. Depending on space limitations, you may see only the plus sign.
Select which widget to add: Image, Text box, Video, Web content, or Custom streaming data.
Say you want your company logo on your dashboard, or some other image. You'll need to save the image file online and link to it. Make sure special credentials aren't required to access the image file. For example, OneDrive and SharePoint require authentication, so images stored there can't be added to a dashboard this way.
Select Image > Next.
Add image information to the Tile details pane.
Select Text box > Next.
NOTE: To add a dashboard heading, type your heading in the text box and increase the font.
Format the text box:
Select Apply. On the dashboard, resize and move the text box as needed.
When you add a YouTube or Vimeo video tile to your dashboard, the video plays right on your dashboard.
Select Video > Next.
Add video information to the Tile details pane.
Select the video tile to play the video.
Select the subtitle to visit the playlist on YouTube.
Paste or type in any HTML content. Power BI adds it, as a tile, to your dashboard. Enter the embed code by hand or copy/paste from sites such as Twitter, YouTube, embed.ly, and more.
Select Web content > Next.
Add information to the Add web content tile pane.

If you'd like the player to resize to fit the tile size, set width and height to 100%.

To make changes to a tile...
Hover over the top right corner of the tile and select the ellipses.
Select the edit icon to re-open the Tile details pane and make changes.
To make it easier to move the tile on your dashboard, add a title and/or subtitle.
If you'd like to embed some content from a website, but the website doesn't give you embed code to copy and paste, check out embed.ly for help generating the embed code.
