  1. Power BI Lite License

    Power BI should have a Lite License for people that only consume dashboards or reports every now and then. This is for people that don't create reports but need to see the dashboards and may need to use the "report level" to be able to export output to PowerPoint (since you can't export the dashboard to PowerPoint but can only do it at Report level).

    • identify power bi pro content

      Whenever Power BI warns that "this dashboard has Power BI Pro content", provide a link to describe specifically what Pro content is included in the dashboard. For example, is it pro content because it's in a group workspace, or is it pro content because it's a direct query connection to an on-premise data source, etc.

      • Extend Power BI Pro Trial to 90 Days

        With the recent Power BI Licensing Change, Power BI free is ineffective for early adopters to evaluate and champion Power BI within their organization. That means that Power BI Pro is the only option. It would greatly help the Early Adopters if the Power BI Pro trial was extended to 90 days.

        The Early Adopters already face a lot of uphill battles
        - Usually an entrenched Old Age BI Tool
        - The reaction of IT to go slow towards any new change
        - Convincing Management and Peers that Power BI delivers incredible value
        etc.

        A 60-day trial means that the…

        • Please FIX/REVIEW your recent changes to the PRO licensing pricing structure

          Power BI Team,

          Your recent changes/fixes to PRO licensing pricing has caused widespread concern and discussion amongst the community. This is due to Microsoft no longer allowing end users/consumers to access Power BI workgroup reports & dashboards. Reports were suddenly inaccessible in organisations that had built Power BI frameworks over the past 2 years. Your new structure now forces these companies to purchase PRO licenses for ALL users regardless of whether they use it or not.

          Unfortunately, Power BI is now the most expensive BI product for large organisations, whom I believe are your primary customers.

          The community has not…

          • Premium - Create Multiple Apps from 1 Workspace

            We need to be able to create multiple Apps from a single workspace.

            My business has just moved over to premium on the basis that you get everything you have with pro licences but you users don't have to be individually named.

            I need to clarify that this isn't strictly the case. With PowerBI premium you can now only share via Apps. Any other form of sharing requires a pro licence. The consequence of this is that you have to share EVERYTHING that resides in a workspace.

            In the case of our business we have a data model that produces…

                • Power BI Server for SMEs

                  I understand the reason for Power BI Premium to make it more cost efficient for large organisations. However, in doing so you have totally cut off many many small to medium businesses. Lots of my clients are looking at Power BI and want to be able to collaborate dashboards and reports with a small number of report writers (1-10) and then a small group of consumers (5-100). In addition most of them already have SSRS report so the Power BI Server would be perfect to have a one stop portal for all reporting. The minimum £3000 per month is totally…

                    • More Pricing options for PowerBI server

                      PowerBI server is a fantastic product and it has excellent value, but the price entry is very high for SME.

                      we would like to have more options to buy entry level capacity than scale from there, Come on Microsoft, a more elastic pricing to cater for all the segments of the market, as right now only big corporate can afford it.

                      • Better pricing model

                        I can understand the need for Pro license for users who need to create and publish reports. However I strongly disagree that users should need a Pro license for simply viewing the reports.
                        The previous model was so much better that way where in users with Free service could still view the reports and apply filters.
                        This new model is making us migrate away from Power BI and explore other BI tools.

                        • free licence

                          enable free licencsing for Dashboard vizualization.

                          large organization will not pay a pro licence to each employee.

                          Paying licence should concern only editors. Dashboard viewing should be free.
                          Otherwise, our organization (as many others) will stop using Power BI

                          • Shared dashboards only with PRO?

                            I think it's an strategy error by Microsoft that the Users that's have no PRO license can't view the dashboards and reports than was created for them once or twice at month. If we need to upgrade many Users to PRO license, maybe we'll use other tools if we need to pay to see our dashboards or reports. I'm agree than the Users that make reports and dashboards will need PRO license, but, the Users that only check it? I can't believe it.

                            At this point, I'm checking other tools that cover our requisites.

                            • Improve license assignment Free and Pro

                              I should not have to worry about withdrawing the free license when I assign a pro license in order not to bother at login to activate a Pro trial.
                              Completely confusing. Either disable the free license when I activate the pro license or consistently apply the pro license also if the free license is activated!

                              • Option for Corporate Licenses to be extended to evaluate the Power of BI

                                To really evaluate the benefits of Power BI with the end users, 60 days does not provide enough time to explore this option.

                                1. Learn the software
                                2. Create the data-sets and dashboards
                                3. Publish the Dashboard
                                4. Get Feedback and Evaluate with End Users

                                Currently Power BI is being evaluated by Coca-Cola Hellenic Ireland. The opportunity to adopt this solution by 26 countries could be missed because of the 60 day trail.

                                Options to extent trail period based on scale of business

                                      • Sharepoint Embedded remove Pro License requirement

                                        The idea that all viewers of a SharePoint site with an embedded Power BI visual should have a Power BI Pro license is just wrong. Please make it so that simple viewers can get by with the Free license. Otherwise this will break the budget for many companies.

                                        • Office 365 Subscription Influences Workspace Functionality

                                          If you do not have Office 365 subscription that includes Sharepoint, you can not edit basic settings for Power BI Workspaces shown in the Power BI Documentation? This is a problem. I know the roadmap says they are going to separate Workspaces in Power BI from Office365 Groups but it bad if paying Power BI customers cannot edit application settings such as a Workspace Image because Microsoft wants them to go buy another application first like Sharepoint.
