QR codes in Power BI can connect anything in the real world directly to related BI information no navigation or search needed.
You can create a QR code in the Power BI service for any report, even for a report you can't edit. Then you place the QR code in a key location. For example, you could paste it in an email, or print it out and paste it in a specific location.
Colleagues you've shared the report with can scan the QR code for access to the report, right from their mobile device. They can use either the QR code scanner located in the Power BI app, or any other QR scanner installed on their device.
Open a report in the Power BI service.
Select the ellipsis (...) in the top-right corner and select Generate QR code.
A dialog box with the QR code appears.
From here you can scan the QR code or download and save it so you can:
Power BI generates the QR code as a JPG file, ready to print.
Select Download, then open the JPG file on a computer connected to a printer.
Print the file at 100% or “actual size”.
Cut out the QR code along its edge and glue it to a place relevant to the report.
