We at LiveTiles want to share the holiday cheer, which is why we have another product release of new features, mainly the Power BI tile!
New feature: Power BI tile
This tile is now available in ‘Preview’ in your design canvas, under ‘Data’ of the tile ribbon. The Power BI tile allows you to display dashboards, list of tiles and the tiles themselves on your LiveTiles pages so you can view your visual data on a single pane of glass.
To use the Power BI tile, you will need to allow your account access to Power Bi and the dashboard/tile that you wish to display on your page. Once you drag the tile onto the age, when going to the Power BI tab, you will get a prompt to sign in. This opens a panel that will allow you to authenticate.
Once you have authenticated, you will be able to select what you would like to display on the page. When other uses view the page, they will be able to log in using their credentials to view the data (given they have access to the dashboard).
*Please note that we are releasing the tile as a ‘Tile in Preview,’ meaning we expect to make improvements based on your feedback. We are especially interested in your experience with the authentication flow for the tile/data. We’ve made it as smooth as possible, but still want to hear your ‘real world’ use experience for improvements.
Improvement: Calendar tile list view option
The second part of this release is the added option to view the Calendar tile in list view, available under the ‘Tile’ tab in the Calendar tile’s options.
Just as a reminder, the next release, Fender 5.0, will be on the 18th of January, 2017. As such, we at LiveTiles wish you Happy Holidays and look forward to giving you more updates and improvements in the New Year!
