Announcing general availability of visualizing views in Power Apps with Power BI

Power BI quick reports in Power Apps have been available in preview since last December. Today we are announcing its general availability to help you discover insights from your data easily from within business applications.

Power BI quick reports in Power Apps represent a seamless integration of Power Apps, Power BI and Dataverse into a single experience to enable every business user turn data into insights inside business apps. Of the data visualization tools available in Power Apps, Power BI quick reports are the most powerful, as they enable everyone to create visually appealing, meaningful, interactive reports based on a view with just one click.

Generate insights in apps without losing context of your work

When exploring data on a table’s home page grid in a model-driven app, select Visualize this view command.

This generates a Power BI report based on the underlying state of the grid.  Any filter or column modifications are added to the report to preserve the context of your data exploration process.

Columns in the view are available in the Your data pane, with the same localized display names as in the underlying grid column header. There are several options available to personalize the visualizations in ways that are meaningful to you. Here’s the post on Power BI blog that details the ways you can interact with the visual.

Save your report to the Power BI service

You can now save the report into the Power BI service easily by giving it a name and choosing a workspace. This persists the report and the related dataset in Power BI, which you can access just like any other Power BI report, and even embed it as a dashboard or on a form.

Getting started

You can enable this capability for a model-driven app through the app’s settings area, available in the modern app designer. Enabling this capability will display Visualize this view command on the grid pages of the tables in the model-driven app.

Review documentation to learn more about this capability and the options available to interact with the Power BI visual.
