Supporting older versions of Power BI Desktop

I have created a very detailed and accurate model in Power BI  (October version). However, people within my organization that do not have knowledge rights cannot have this version (only a previous one, from March).

 

I would like to know if there is a way for me to save my current product as an older extension.  Otherwise, can it be the case that I will have to re-do everything due to this version situation?!

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @biancabarroso,

 

Based on my test, when we open a pbix file which created from new desktop version in March desktop, below error will throw out. It's obvious that we are not able to save the report to March desktop version.

You could try to update client users' desktop version. Also you can publish reports to Power BI service, share reports with them: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-how-to-collaborate-distribute-dashboards-reports
