Dynamics NAV content pack for Power BI desktop

Hi all,

 

It's working fine on powerbi.com but I can't find it on the desktop version. Is it normal, or I'm missing something ?

In the case it is not, will this be available ?

 

Thanks

 

John

Hi John - the content pack uses the OData connector that also exists in the Power BI Desktop. While it's not listed as Dynamics NAV, that OData entry should allow you to connect when you provide the same URL as you do in powerbi.com.

Is there any update on this? I would love to have those NAV Content Pack dashboards/reports for Power BI Desktop.

Hi TPalmer

 

Do you think it will become available for download so we can use it using the Desktop client?

 

Thanks

Hi does that mean that the Desktop version downloads the Microsoft Dynamics NAV content pack so I can get the same dashboards "out of the box" as on Powerbi.com? Or do I have to build the dashboards myself? My customers wants to be able to run the Desktop version.

 

Thanks

Hi PalleA,

 

It's not possible to get the content pack from powerbi.com (or I didn't find out how).

 

You will need to recreate the dashboards. It doesn't take too long.

Thanks John.

 

Annoying as I now have to invest time in learning ONE more Microsoft product of which I am never gonna be a real expert in and by that kinda wasting some of my time as I cant bill the customer for making a "copy" of the content package.
