Visualize data in model-driven apps with Power BI (preview)

Today, we are announcing the availability of Power BI quick reports in model-driven apps in preview. This update combines the capabilities of Power Apps, Power BI and Dataverse in a seamless way to help you visualize and understand your data – with one click.

Power BI quick reports add to the flexibility of data visualization options already available in Power Apps. While charts and custom components allow you to create specific, custom visualizations in Power Apps, Power BI quick reports generate a report automatically based on the page context, combined with an understanding of underlying data types, with no prior set up required.

Generate insights in Power Apps without losing context of your work

To get started, simply navigate to a table’s home page grid in a model-driven app and select Visualize this view command at the top of the page.

This button generates a Power BI report based on the underlying view. Any additional filters or column modifications on top of the view are also automatically added to the report to transfer that context from data to visualization.

There are several options available to personalize this visualization to help you visualize the data 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.

You can close the dialog to go back to the view page to continue your work in the model-driven app from where you left.

Enable Power BI quick report visualization in a model-driven app

You can enable this capability for a model-driven app through the app’s settings area, available in the modern app designer in preview. 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.
