Syncing visuals / report pages in Desktop and Web version

Hello all,

 

I am working on setting up the data model for our company in PowerBI Desktop Service. I have published this data model + report to the web version, so my colleagues can look at the data and create visuals for themselves.

 

As i continuously improve our data model (pull in new sources, refine data, allocate costs/revenues etc), i plan to publish an updated version of our data model every week or so. However, when doing that, i will discard any of the visuals my colleagues made in the web version of our report, as the report pages / visuals they create are not synced to my locally saved .pbix file.

 

Does anyone have a solution for this?

 

Thanks!

 

David

@david2 There is soon going to be a feature out (no timeline yet) that will let you download pbix file from power bi service (online). That means your workflow can be, Create report in pbi desktop -> Publish to service -> your colleagues make changes in service to that report -> download pbix file from service -> make changes to that pbix file -> re-publish to service. Keep an eye on this idea here to find out when it will be out.

Perfect, that would indeed be the best solution (i was hoping for this already).

 

Thanks @ankitpatira
