Display DirectQuery report on monitor

Hi all,


I have created a report using DirectQuery mode in Power BI and set automatic page refresh to 5 minutes.

My goal is to display this semi 'realtime' report (updates every 5 minutes) onto a monitor screen for my customers to see (not in my organisation)

The method to display on the monitor does not matter (i.e. I'm okay with creating a website etc to display on the monitor)

May I ask, what are the all options available for such a request?

Thank you in advance!

Hi @RossEdwards,


I am already using it.. My query is to find out all possible ways to display on my customers monitor.

Any software or license or steps would be helpful.

Thank you

Hi @mit1 


If I understand correctly, you're trying to share the report with your customers (not within your organization).


Maybe the following methods can help you.


You can invite the customer to be a guest user within your organization, and then set that customer to a role for the workspace.


For more details, you can read related document link:
Distribute content to external guest users with Microsoft Entra B2B - Power BI | Microsoft Learn
Roles in workspaces in Power BI - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

You can also configure Automatic page refresh for the report in the service. 



Best Regards,
Yulia Xu
