Use Microsoft Forms with Power BI Reports

Posted On April 3, 2021 by Jaison Menezes Posted in  Tagged in ,

Sometimes we would want to ask users about their thoughts , opinions or ask some questions along with a PowerBI report. That is, we would need  to collect information about the user through PowerBI App.  This can be done by creating a Microsoft Form inside PowerBI interface to collect user information. This can be demonstrated as:

  • Go to forms.office.com and create a new form.
  • Insert the Title , Description and add some fields in my case I have created a Test form with a field for giving ratings.
  • Click on share and copy the link.
  • Go to app.powerbi.com , create a new workspace and while creating enable develop a template app option
  • Add your existing PowerBI reports here by clicking “New” option and then click on create app.
  • You can add Name, description and logo to this app also you can choose a theme
  • Click on Navigation tab and enable new navigation builder
  • Click on the  New button on the navigation pane and select link.
  • Enter the Name of the form and enter Microsoft form link
  • Publish the app then select go to app
  • As you can see the form is embedded in PowerBI interface
  • The responses done by users gets saved at forms.office.com
  • This can be used in a scenario where we need feedback for a  PowerBI report

Hope this blog helped

Note:

Not all Power BI users can view and interact with apps.

  • If you have a free license, you can open apps that are stored in Premium capacity and have then been shared with you.
  • If you have a Pro license, you can open apps that have been shared with you.
