PowerBI Apps 2/5

Think of a Power BI App as the (cleaned up) face of a workspace. A workspace is where we publish reports, datasets, dashboards, and paginated reports. It’s an area where things live, but we most likely don’t want to share everything that is in there. The PowerBI App currently has a 1 to 1 relationship with a workspace meaning you can only build a single app on top of a workspace.

Below is an example of a Power BI workspace which you’ll see holds much more content than the App I showed yesterday. Not everything that has been published into the workspace will be shared up through the app. On the right-hand side, you’ll see a column “Include in app” which tells us the content that is currently included.

Tomorrow we will cover creating and updating an App from the Workspace.
