Measuring users of Power BI

I would like to measure users of Power BI to understand how successful a published dashboard is.  I would like to know what tabs they are clicking on, how long they spend on a page, overall user numbers etc.

 

For a webpage I would generally use Google Analytics.  Can Google Analytics be installed in Power BI (not as a data source) but to track users of Power BI or some other analytics package?

Hello @Anonymous !

 

Sounds like you want to go to either the

1) Admin portal in Power BI Service settings to check out usage metrics

 

Power BI Service Admin - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/service-admin-portal#how-to-get-to-the-admin-portal

Section on Usage metrics - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/service-admin-portal#usage-metrics

or

 

2) the O365 Security & Compliance admin center for more in-depth audit logs.

Section on Audit logs - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/service-admin-portal#audit-logs

Track User Activities - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/service-admin-auditing

 

Note: you'll need Power BI administrator role to access the Admin portal and/or global admin permissions to access O365 (& Power BI admin). You could always put in an IT request with your organization to pull the logs.

 

Hope this information helps you!
