How can we improve Power BI?

Possibility to share dashboard without sharing the underlying report

Some end-users only need access to the Dashboard functionality. For these users, the underlying reports are not required and should be hidden.

        Please solve this asap. What's the use of selecting pages for a dashboard when users can see the entire report anyway?

        This should be raised up the priority list now. I learnt about the new app approach for sharing but again it still doesn't offer enough options about how dashboards, reports and datasets are shared. It would be good to pick and choose when we can want to share the dashboard and report, just the dashboard, just the report etc etc

        Especially when the dashboard is an overview of a number of detailled reports and you only want to share the general charts.

        i am in the same boat. I need to share only the dashboard and none of the underlying reports. It makes a lot of sense to have this functionality when you share dashboards to users who just want to view the analysis which has already been organised. So for senior management or bosses who just want the information. These users tend to be trigger happy and then end up the report where they tend to get lost from my experience.

        This is important when reports span over several tabs. Right now several users repor that they find it hard to navigate such reports.
