Power BI usage statistics
Provide analysis of how our Power BI dashboards/reports are being used:
Hit count, Q&A queries ran, filters applied, common actions etc.
This would allow us to track the importance and use of our reporting and see how different users interact with the data.
Hello everyone! I’m an excited to announce Power BI usage metrics for content creators! This release allows you to see the metrics for the dashboards and reports that you’ve created, without the need for O365/Power BI admin privileges. To learn more:
With this release, we are resolving this item as done.
However, we are planning on iterating on the v1 functionality in the months to come. We’ve created the following UserVoice items for these improvements. Please cast your vote below to help us prioritize our investments going forward:
> Usage metrics show the exact e-mail address/names of users who access dashboards/reports
> Usage metrics for Power BI apps
> Usage metrics contains data for >90 days
> Improve usage metrics performance
> Usage metrics programmatic access
This is great. Very useful but I'd really like to know owners of top 10 dashboards and the names of the dashboards in our domains. Someone may have created a great dashboard but I don't have visibility of it. Plus I need to know who is beating me ;-)
Should also add a feature where it can show when a user last logged in to PowerBI itself, not just a specific report/dashboard.
Great feature and gives a good overview.
However as other users have also commented for certain reports it would be beneficial to know who the users are.
Could there also be usage metrics for Excelreports?
Great feature, it seems, however, it does not give me the full list of persons viewing but only the total count. Since the dashboard is used by multiple teams, we would like to see who actually uses it often. Is this possible with the current capabilities?
Good Job guys

it would be great if we could have 1 dashboard for multiple reports across workspaces.

This is great but definitely need usernames
Can we make the Usage Statistics available to non-admins?

How can we view these in a chart? Is it possible to create a PowerBI dashboard that gets automatically updated?
I work for a large organisation (30k+ staff). i am heading up sole dept creating PowerBI dashboards. I have no influence over IT in the corporation. How to find out the usage and views of the dashboards we are publishing?
Just wanted to let you know while we delivered this for Admins something is coming for users too! ...Stand by!

Any update on usage statistics for content owners/creators? I'm in the dark about how many users are hitting my reports because I am not an IT admin. Really need these stats!

Would like to see this for content owners and creators. No true Business intelligence tool can be 100% useful if we cannot follow our users and the effectiveness of our content.
Those are critical reports for Admin or auditing purpose, please share timeline for Vietnam market as we can not report the system usage to stack holder since system go-live
Would like to see this for content owners and creators
Assuming everyone has seen the latest options in Admin portal?
Under Tenant Settings switch to 'On' Create Audit Logs for Internal Activity Auditing down near the bottom for detailed audit logs.
Question Microsoft: Any way you can download the Usage Metrics to a .csv or any other format?
