How to access Power BI once published

Hi All,

 

Can I please just check, as of now June 2022, the only way for people to view power bi reports without a license is:

 

1. Share the pbix and they open with desktop

or

2. Publish to web (obviously not secure)

3. Powerpoint, PDF or analyse in Excel.

 

Am I also correct in thinking unless the user has a pro or premium per user license, they still wont be able to view anything pulished to an app or non premium workspace. 

 

Thanks

Correct. And Analyze in Excel requires a license to refresh, so you would have to open the file, refresh, and save it.

 

Given all of that hassle, $10 seems pretty cheap for a Pro license.
