How can we improve Power BI?

Usage Report

hi,

Would we be able to have detailed reports regarding which users are using which dashboards most, being able to filter users rather than looking at an enterprise wide report?

What we're looking for is drilling down/ through the current usage report

    We built ours into the web app AppOwnsData model as you know the user when you create an embed token, but this is for Power BI Embedded Premium. We wrote a script to dump the logs to a SQL table and report from there. The global admin for us dumped it to a SQL table for us through powershell.

    Why can’t we have a PBI adoption content pack? The read-only PBI representation of usage that can’t be drilled into or even exported is poor and frustrating . BI for BI is really missing and manual workarounds with power shell scripts and logs and CSVs is not a practical solution for BI teams who haven no O365 admin access. Come on Microsoft. You have developed a great tool but we can’t easily see or slice and dice how it is being used. If you can create content packs for Azure usage and O365 adoption surely it can’t be that difficult?

    Yes. Make the dataset for the admin usage statistics report available. The audit logging has very limited information, so we can't really get good insight to our usage.

    I'm also interested in this, I have a director who wants access to the usage statistics, but we don't want to make him a power BI Admin and he really doesn't want to be an admin either.

    We would also be interested in reports on Power BI dashboard/report usage/hits and counts of unique users with user names.

    Even a report view/month counter on a report would be helpful, to know how often people are using our reports.
