Dashboards, reports, and datasets are at the heart of Power BI service. Create personalized dashboards to monitor your most important data, at a glance.  A dashboard combines on-premises and cloud-born data in a single pane of glass, providing a consolidated view across the organization regardless of where the data lives. Each metric, or insight, is displayed on the dashboard as a tile

Dashboards can be wider and longer than the browser window. If so, they have scroll bars. Because you want to show everything important at a glance, we recommend making the dashboard fit the browser window. For more tips, see Tips for designing a great dashboard.

Working with Dashboards in the navigation pane

Power BI can have more than one dashboard -- as you add more dashboards, their titles are added to the list under the Dashboards heading.  The dashboard you're currently viewing is highlighted. Only one dashboard can be open at a time.
