Once you've built a dashboard, you can edit its *Tiles in the Power BI service to make a few formatting changes.
To make changes to a tile, hover over the tile and select the ellipses (three dots) to show a collection of icons that allow you to make changes to the tile.
Select the pen icon to open the Tile Details pane. From here you can change the tile's Title, Subtitle, include its last refresh time and date, and other details such as creating a custom link.
By default, when you click on a dashboard tile you are taken to the report from which it originated. To change this behavior, use the Set custom link field in the Tile Details pane. One popular use of this feature is to take users to the organization homepage when clicking on a logo image.
You can also add Widgets to your dashboard. A widget is a special dashboard tile that, instead of containing a visualization, contains other items such as an image, an online video, a text box, or rich web content.
When you select the Add Widget link in the upper-right corner of a Dashboard, the Add a widget dialog appears.
When you add a text box, for example, a Tile details pane appears on the right side, where you can edit details similar what is available when editing the details of any tile. But with widgets, there's also a section to define or modify the widget content, such as a rich text editor for a text box.
With widgets and the ability to edit tile details, you can customize your dashboard and make it look just how you want it to be.
