New Power BI Tab for Microsoft Teams
Measuring and tracking results is essential for teams to achieve their objectives. However, it’s often hard for everyone to use data to make decisions. Adding Power BI reports where people collaborate helps data driven decision making become part of your routine.

In this blog, we’ll highlight the new capabilities and provide tips and tricks for how to use the tab to drive a data culture where people collaborate.
When the tab is added to your channels and chats, it’s easier for everyone to find and track the data they need to achieve their objectives. It’s also a great way to manage change in your organization. As new people join a team, the data they need is right there and ready for them to use.
