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.
The Power BI Mobile team is going to finish this work in their coming sprints
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.

Any update on this?
I'm frustrated that this has not been implemented yet, and dumbfounded that no one thought of this before..... Putting metrics on a public screen is one of the more common uses of data visualization software. It also seems like a very simple addition from a programming standpoint.
We are trying to promote PBI in manufacturing plants showing various reports, would be nice to have a slideshow
Would be nice. Thank you!
Planned for over a year...please give us all a hint of when you plan to start the development of this feature!
Absolutely. This seems like common sense. Very strange that M$ haven't implemented this.

I would also like to know which is the status of this feature? Is it possible to have it completed soon?
This would be really awesome to have! If we can create a lot of pages for the dashboard in Power BI, and Power BI has been built, thought to give visualization of data and information, then, an auto switching feature is a must have.
Can you please provide us an update of this?
Thank you so much,
