Implication of multiple users using write back

Rather general question. Having built a report with a power app integrating with Power BI (allowing users to write back to the data source). What is the implication if multiple users are using the report at the same time? Presumably they could be updating the same fields at any one time making it unworkable. If so is there anyway around this.


Thanks in advance.

Hi  @Anonymous ,

According to research, the last modified and saved file overwrites the previous file.

You can set their role to a role other than Viewer in the workspace of the report and grant him permission to edit the dataset.

In this case, different people can view and edit the report at the same time, but when they edit, the unsaved report is not updated in real time

You might consider using saving the file as pbit, allowing only one person to edit locally, as much data is brought into the model, your different versions will end up taking up a lot of space. PBIT does mean that data needs to be loaded every time the model is opened, so there is a trade-off.
