Slideshow in Full Screen/TV mode
The ‘Full Screen mode’ could become more useful for presenting reports on dedicated large screens if it became just a bit more dynamic. Whilst it is currently possible to scroll through report sheets by clicking the arrows in the bottom right corner, it would be most valuable to be able to automate such browsing. A solution could be to introduce a “Play” button that starts a slideshow scrolling through the available report sheets according to a customizable time interval.
This is now available in the Windows Power BI app! Check out the details here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/enhancing-presentation-mode-with-slideshow-in-windows-power-bi-app/

Another user and I created a Google Chrome extension to programatically REFRESH and cycle through the tabs on a Power BI Report using Google Chrome.

Why not a Slideshow at Embed Frame mode?
You just need to a Play Button and Timer on the Bottom Tab. It's play all Tabs Sections of Report.
We can develop a full screen web page and put a web application like Php for example.

"complete"? I dont think so. For this to really be complete it needs to support more than one report and handle at least reloading the page to update what it's scrolling through!
I've had to hack together a script to open multiple reports, tab through them and then refresh each report. A proper, kioskable solution would be really nice MS :)
This idea wasn't just for the PBI mobile app, it applied to the PBI service and PBI desktop as well. I'm dissapointed that I can't use this feature, been looking forward to it. I object.
Why only in Power BI app? What about the service or what to do if Win7 is still in use?

Is this available only in the app, or is support included for PowerBI Report Server PBI reports when viewed in a web browser?
This is the best news all day. It is only 08:24, but I doubt anything is going to beat it.
Any news on this? We'd like to show 2 dashboards and carousel between them every x seconds.
Need it. We want to scroll through slides and power bi dashboard. However I can put slide to gif and embedded in powerbi but I could not get it to scroll different tab or different report. We are displaying it as company dashboard.
@swapnil: Sure. Here's what we did:
1. Installed the Super Auto Refresh Chrome extension.
2. Add chromeless option to the URL of your report. Ex: https://app.powerbi.com/groups/<groupid>/reports/<reportid>?chromeless=1
3. Open Chrome and paste your URL
4. Enable the Super Auto Refresh extension
5. Press F11
To auto-refresh the underlying data, you can either use the RestAPI for PowerBI service, or set up scheduled refresh in app.powerbi.com (pick your dataset, choose settings>scheduled refresh)
@Greg: Could you share your architecture to enable auto refresh
Will this also include an option to auto-refresh? We have Power BI reports displayed on bigscreen wall monitors and we're using Google Chome auto-refresh extensions + RestAPI calls to Power BI to keep the reports current. This was our best option early last year to maintain the look and feel of the report (which gets lost if we use dashboards).

What a BIG idea to have Power BI on the BIG screen😉

We'd like this to be as simple to manage and as 'out of the box' as possible to make administration simple. A windows store app isn't a good approach as lots of enterprise admins are still on the fence when it comes to managing these.
Easiest thing to manage on a large scale would be a kiosk mode PC set to open Edge with a url. Append something to the URL to enable TV mode and it should just rotate through each page of a report (full screen) and refresh the report every few minutes. Could still allow interaction if a user has a fancy touch-screen display and resume cycling through pages after a few minutes of inactivity.
Please see the current efforts here
PowerBI should afford us all the presentation features available in PowerPoint... transitions, slide timing, animation, forward/back. Duplicate PPPT and then you have something.
Meanwhile, the store has a lame "Dashboard Rotator" that will give you about 1% of the functionality
Any update on this? Simple feature but not included yet.
I'd like to automatically scroll thru a series of bookmarks, not just the report tabs.
