      Thanks for sharing this idea! As its name suggests, Power BI Report Server focuses on Power BI reports (the artifacts you create in Power BI Desktop). Nonetheless, we’re always interested in hearing your feedback, so if you’d like to see the Power BI service’s “dashboards” feature in Power BI Report Server, vote here. Even better, post a comment and share a little more about why. Looking forward to the discussion!

      @Mark, the product name doesn't determine the feature set; more the opposite: it merely reflects what the product does -- at least today.

        Thanks for submitting this idea. We’re interested to hear from many of you about why and how you install multiple instances of Reporting Services on the same server. Drop us a comment and tell us a little more about
        - Why do you install multiple instances of Reporting Services on the same server (as opposed to, say, creating multiple folder trees within the same server and using permissions to isolate users)?
        - What are the key things you’d need to be able to configure differently/independently across instances?

        While we could follow the SQL Server approach of enabling you to perform multiple installations of the software on the same server, we could alternatively take a more lightweight approach of enabling you to create multiple “sites” within one installation. (SharePoint uses this latter approach, as did Datazen Server.) The latter approach doesn’t provide quite the same degree of isolation — you can’t…

        @Ian, you can run multiple instances of Power BI Report Server on the same physical server today through virtualization at the OS/VM level, just not through a "multi-instance" feature built into Power BI Report Server. This shouldn't be a licensing issue, more of a manageability issue.
