Power BI report slideshow

I want to display two or more reports on a screen as a slideshow and want the display to change every 20 seconds, for example. Is that possible using Power BI desktop?

Hi , @LangeJan 

Currently, it's not supported to display report pages as SlideShow in browser.

You can come up with a new idea / vote for  this idea and add your comments there to make this feature coming sooner.

Under the comment section of idea, I find a workaround you can take a try.

Here's what we did:
1. Installed the Super Auto Refresh Chrome extension.
2. Add chromeless option to the URL of your report. Ex: https://app.powerbi.com/groups//reports/?chromeless=1
3. Open Chrome and paste your URL
4. Enable the Super Auto Refresh extension
5. Press F11
To auto-refresh the underlying data, you can either use the RestAPI for PowerBI service, or set up scheduled refresh in app.powerbi.com (pick your dataset, choose settings>scheduled refresh)

 

You aslo can take a try  this extension : Power BI Real-Time Slideshow

Hi @LangeJan and anyone else reading this,

 

I'm Daniel, the person who has maintained the open source Chrome extension linked above to GitHub: https://github.com/DMiradakis/Power-BI-Real-Time-Slideshow

 

If you're reading this and you're still interested in getting this functionality, can I ask you a small question? Can you navigate to this link in my GitHub repository and comment on the discussion thread I've opened?

 

I still really love the Chrome extension, but my version has been broken for quite a while, and I'm seriously considering rebuilding the entire thing from the ground up as a SaaS product. The Chrome extension is ultimately a Javascript/DOM/HTML hack, and it breaks every time the Power BI team updates the HTML code in the Power BI Service. My new vision is something extremely reliable that uses the Power BI REST APIs.

 

Additionally, if you're running a non-Windows device, my envisioned web app could still provide this functionality, AND it will provide REFRESH capabilities, which the Microsoft solution currently lacks.

 

Your participation would be greatly appreciated. 😊

 

Thanks!

 

-Daniel
