Dashboard Sharing

I have Office Pro Plus & Power BI for Office 365 subscriptions and I added a free Power BI account today.


Then I logged in my paid account and shared a dahsboard with my free acoount


Then I logged in the free account and waited for the dashboard I shared from my paid account to show up...


While waiting I found this.....

"Your colleagues will receive an email invitation with a link to the shared dashboard. Clicking the link adds the dashboard to their Power BI. If they haven't yet signed up for Power BI, they will be redirected to instructions to do so."


The problem is that my domain name is and I don't think I get email service with this subscription.


So although the invitation seems to be pending - because I can go in my paid account and cancel it - my free account will never get that invitation because my domain is


Any suggestions???

Had to switch my plan from Office 365 Pro Plus (which provides the domain but does not provide email service to it) to Office 365 E3 (which includes email service). I hope they make it easier to share dashboards with messages within the PBI environment instead of emails but for now issue resolved.

Both accounts are with => domains.

If its within the same domain why can't the free account just get a notification inside the Power BI website when that user logs in.


What's the point of the email - I am already signed up for Power BI.

@Sean Your second account needs to be in the same domain in order to share/open.

To test out the sharing scenerio's I had to have a test user created in our company domain by my IT team, including email service, just to make this work.
