Reading View

Reading View is a great way to explore the data in a Power BI report, without worrying that you'll break something.  You can browse the report, interact with the visualizations, and pin any of the visualizations to your dashboard. 


To edit the report and save your changes, open it in Editing View.

  1. Create a report and open it in Reading View.

  2. Open a report by selecting it from the list in your workspace Reports tab.

    Or, open a report from a dashboard, by selecting a tile that was created from a report.

  3. The report opens in Reading view.

  4. There's so much you can do in Reading View.  This sample report has multiple pages, so start exploring by selecting each tab at the bottom of the report canvas. To read more about Reading view, see Interact with a report in Reading view.
