Have you heard about the new apps yet? Apps are the new way to distribute content to large audiences in Power BI. We recommend using apps instead of organizational content packs or read-only workspaces. Learn more about apps.
You can package up and share your dashboards, reports, Excel workbooks, and datasets with your colleagues as organizational content packs. Your colleagues can use them as-is, or they can create their own copies.
Creating content packs is different from sharing dashboards or collaborating on them in a group. Read How should I collaborate on and share dashboards and reports? to decide on the best option for your situation.
Only the content pack creator can do some organizational content pack tasks:
If you make changes to the original content pack dashboard, report, or Excel workbook, Power BI prompts you to republish. Additionally, as the content pack creator, you can update any of the options you selected in the Create Content Pack window when you were creating the original content pack.
When you make and save a change to the dashboard that you included in a content pack, Power BI reminds you to update it so others can see the changes. For example, if you pin a new tile or just change the name of the dashboard.
Select View Content Packs in the message.
Or select the cog icon in the upper-right corner and select View Content Pack.
Notice the warning icon . This lets you know that you've modified the content pack in some way and it no longer matches what you published.
Make any necessary changes in the Update Content Pack window and select Update. A Success message appears.
Another modification available to content pack creators is expanding and restricting access to the content pack. Perhaps you published a content pack to a broad audience and you've decided to restrict access to a smaller group.
Select the cog icon and choose View Content Packs.
Make any necessary changes in the Update Content Pack window and select Update. For example, delete the original distribution group in the Specific Groups field and replace it with a different distribution group (that has fewer members).
A Success message appears.
For any coworker who isn't part of the new alias:
As the content pack creator, you can schedule refresh of the datasets. When you create and upload the content pack, that refresh schedule is uploaded with the datasets. If you change the refresh schedule, you need to re-publish the content pack (see above).
You can only delete a content pack from the content pack library if you're the content creator.
Tip: You can delete your connection to a content pack you didn't create. That doesn't delete the content pack from the library.
To delete a content pack from the content pack library, select the cog icon and choose View Content Packs.
Select Delete > Yes.
