Company Logo - Dynamic URL images - Advice

Good afternoon,

We are working on finalizing our template (.pbit) file and had a question on leveraging a dynamic image for our logo. Our logo changes from time to time and we wanted to account for that in our Power BI dashboards and reports. Originally we uploaded a static .jpg into the .pbit itself and then we thought about using an image from a URL / SharePoint instead, to account for changes. That said, we have two options, we can either pull the image in by leveraging the URL itself in an adhoc table in the data model or have it saved out on a dataset / dataflow.

We feel like the dataset / dataflow just adds another unnecessary step. Does it make sense to simply incorporate the URL / image in the .pbit file leveraging the URL or are there any additional benefits to saving it as a dataset / dataflow in a workspace? The file size of the image isn't even one MB and its not as though we are saving the actual image in the file, just the link. Any guidance or insight you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

@Csummers828 I think incorporating PBIT, in this case, makes sense. Think if the image has to change when users are interactive with the report, like showing in matrix or in slicer etc, then you want to have a table where you can read the URL. If the image is specific to that report and is static, having a URL in PBIT is the way to go.
