Here you will learn to add a new analytics report to BI Book. Note that this requires you to be logged in as a user.


Adding a new analytics report


Before you start, here are the basics:

  • The Analytics part of BI Book is built on Power BI premium capacity, meaning we host the reports in a dedicated Power BI Service, and embed them via premium capacity.  Therefore all reports in BI Book must be hosted inside the BI Book Power BI Service. 
  • We enable users to add new reports from: 
    • Existing reports which reside in BI Books Power BI Service. These are either "Link to Page" or "Link to Pages" reports.
    • Power BI reports hosted in BI Books Power BI Service
    • --> Meaning we have 3 report types: 
      • "Link to page"
      • "Link to pages" and
      • "Standard Report"


Adding a new Link to Page report:

  • Go to Company management while logged in as an admin and navigate to the Reports tab (or go directly to the page) and click Add Report
  • Fill in the form: 
    • Choose "Report Type" as "Link to page".
    • Insert any name you would like
    • Choose from the existing Power BI reports and wait for your Pages to be loaded. 
    • Select one of the pages to your report and press "Add"
    • Wait for it --> you're done!
    • Press "Add Report" and wait for up to 60 seconds and your report has been added!


Adding a new Link to Pages report:

  • Adding a Link to Pages is identical to adding a Link to Page described above, except several pages can be selected. 


Adding a new Standard Report report:


  1. Go to Company management while logged in as an admin and navigate to the Reports tab (or go directly to the page) and click Add Report
  2. Fill in the form: 
    • Choose "Report Type" as "Standard"
    • Insert any name you would like
    • Paste the Report URL from your BI Book integrated Power BI Service
    • Choose if users with Editing or Admin rights should have the rights to edit the report. 
    • Press "Add Report" and wait for up to 60 seconds and your report has been added!


FAQ and Troubleshooting:

  • Adding "Standard" or "Custom" Power BI Report: 
    • If the report is in your own Power BI tenant the report will not be added.
      • The reason for this is Power BI Premium is tenant specific, meaning we need to provide you with a Power BI Workspace in our tenant in order to add a new report. Please contact support at support@bibook.com for your own Workspace in our tenant to add custom content or try out one of our pre-built report packages.
