Once your all Power BI Dashboard is ready, then it is the time to add some various interactive Power BI Reports to it.

To view all the Power BI Reports, Click on the Reports tab. Once you will click on the Reports tab, then it will display all the various reports which you have created before as shown below.
To know about all the interactive pages that you have made in a report, click on a particular report which you want. When you will click on a report, then it will show you all the visualization pages which you made before.
As I have created two visualization pages in the Product Details Chart report, So these two pages are appearing in the below screenshot.

- Drop-down Menu: To select the Dashboard where you want to add the report, Use this drop-down menu.
Once you will fill all the field options, then click on the Pin live to add the report in Dashboard.
Now go to that particular Dashboard. In that dashboard, you can see that the specific visualization page, which you have added recently.
