If you are new to Microsoft Power BI, then you can follow this below article:
Add Web Content to Power BI Dashboard
Here I will show you how we can add Web content to Power BI Dashboard. Below is the Power BI Dashboard screenshot where I will add the Web content.
To add the Web content to Power BI Dashboard, Click on the +Add tile option which is present on the top bar of the Power BI Dashboard page.
Once you will click on the +Add tile option, It will open the below window. Select the Web content option under the MEDIA section which helps to add some custom HTML code to the Power BI Dashboard. Just click on the Next button.
Now Add textbox tile will appear where you have to enter the below field values:
- Display title and subtitle: Once you will put on the checkmark to this option, then it will display the title and subtitle of this Web content. (By default this option was disabled)
- Title: Provide the title of the Web content that you want.
- Subtitle: Provide the subtitle of the Web content which you want.
- Embed code: Here, under the Content section, you can write your custom code for the Web content.
- Set custom link: Check the Set custom link to provide the link type.
- Link type: Chose any link type option whether you want to give an External link or link on the dashboard or report in the current workspace.
- External Link: If you want to give the external URL, then you can select this option.
- Link to a dashboard or report in the current workspace: If you want to select the dashboard or a report from the current workspace, then you can select this option.
- URL: Please provide the external video URL which should be starting from http:// or https://.
Similarly, If you want to open the custom link in the same tab, then enable the Yes option otherwise enable No as like the below screenshot.
When all the field value will be finished, then click on Apply as shown below.
Once you will Apply all these Web content details, then you can see your result as like the below screenshot. You can see the HTML Code is appearing which you have provided in the Embed code under the Content section.
If you checkmark this Set Custom Link then the Web Content (HTML Code) that we specified in our previous step will remain the same.
Also, it creates a Hyperlink which will link to another Web Page, or another dashboard or Report.
As I have considered the Set custom link as an External link, So you can open this Web content as a hyperlink.
Click on the … (3 Dots) symbol which is present in the top right corner of the Web content. Click on Open hyperlink as shown below. When you will hover on this Open hyperlink, then it will show you the targeted link.
As I have provided an external link and given this below web site link which starts from https://, so it is appearing like the below screenshot once I clicked on Open hyperlink.
Now I will set the Custom link as Link to a dashboard or report in the current workspace which helps to select the dashboard or a report from the current workspace.
Here, I will show you how you can use this Link to a dashboard or report in the current workspace in the Power BI Web content.
To provide the Custom link in the Web content, Go to the … (3 dots) symbol and click on Edit details as shown below.
In the Tile details page, select Link to a dashboard or report in the current workspace and chose any Dashboard or report from the drop-down that links to. Just click on Apply as like below screenshot.
Now click on the … (3 Dots) symbol which is present in the top right corner of the Web content. Click on Open hyperlink as shown below. When you will hover on this Open hyperlink, then it will show you the targeted link.
As I have selected the Conros Demo (report) from the dropdown, that’s why when I have clicked on Open hyperlink, it has opened that specific report which I have provided.
