You can add comments to reports, including Power BI reports, within the web portal of a report server. The comments live with the report, and anyone with the right permissions can see the comments for the report. See the Notes section below for more about permissions.

Add or view comments

  1. Open a paginated or Power BI report on a report server.

  2. In the upper-right corner, select Comments.

    In the Comments pane, you can see any existing comments.

  3. Write your comment, then select Post Comment.

    Your comment shows in the pane on the web portal, along with any previous comments. They don't appear with the report on in the Power BI mobile apps.


     Did you know? You can annotate Power BI reports in the Power BI mobile apps and share the annotated reports with others.


Depending on your permissions, you can:

  • Not see comments.
  • See all comments, and post, edit, and delete your own.
  • See all comments; post, edit, and delete your own; and delete other people’s.
