Microsoft Teams and Power BI are two of Microsoft’s most popular apps. But for many people, they don’t go together. “Teams are for chatting,” they might say. Or “Power BI is only for reports.” But integrating the two makes sense on many levels—and these five reasons will convince you why.

Five reasons to integrate Microsoft Teams and Power BI

Reason 1: Power BI features are delivered right to you in Teams

One of the main reasons to implement Power BI is that you get access to your data and reports right inside Microsoft Teams. You can embed them in a channel or share them with others, and they appear in the user interface just like any other type of content.

Debuting new features such as “cards” is a great way to make teams more productive, but it also helps keep your team members engaged by showing them what’s happening around them. Cards show up automatically when someone shares a file from Teams (like an image or document), so everyone can see what’s happening even if they don’t know how to view Power BI files directly from the web browser.

Reason 2: No more hunting through SharePoint sites for your reports

SharePoint is a great tool, but finding the needed report is challenging. Microsoft Teams is more flexible and allows you to keep the front and center of your dashboard throughout your day. When you create a dashboard in Power BI, we recommend adding it as a tab on your team site, so it’s easy to access by all of your teammates. This ensures that your key metrics are always available in one place, no matter where they are working or what device they use to check email or view reports.

Reason 3: Keep the front and center of your dashboard with a tab

Tabs are a great way to keep your focus on what you need. For example, if you’re working on a specific project, you can pin that tab as the front-and-center tab. Or there is a piece of data or insight that is relevant only for one person in your organization and not the rest of your team. In that case, you can create a different tab just for that person by using their account name in the URL or title property (see below).

You can also use tabs to ensure that everyone stays up-to-date with the latest data from Power BI. For example, if there’s an important dashboard or report in Power BI that everyone needs access to at all times—like sales numbers or employee metrics—you could create individual tabs for each team member, so they only have access to their dashboard but see all other dashboards in their organization when they click “tabs” at the top left corner of Microsoft Teams:

Reason 4: Use Power BI Q&A to ask questions and get answers

Q&A is a great way to get answers to questions. You can find out what your colleagues are working on, why they’re doing it, and how you can help. You can also use Q&A to ask follow-up questions or learn about related topics.

You don’t need permission from anyone else to ask questions using Power BI Q&A—it works across teams, groups, and distribution lists. This means that if someone else has already asked the same question or is working on similar data as you, they’ll be notified by email when someone leaves them a comment on their Q&A post or upvotes the answer that they provided for your question!

Reason 5: Work together on data with cross-company groups and distribution lists

With Microsoft Teams, you can collaborate on data across your company—and even outside of it—to make better decisions faster. With Power BI Q&A, you can ask questions and get answers. You can also share data with colleagues, partners, and customers on their terms.

With Power BI, you can create dashboards that help you and your team get answers to the questions that matter. You can also collaborate with colleagues to share data and insights with others in your organization—and even outside of it—to make better decisions faster.

Do you (or your users) use Microsoft Teams? If so, then integrating it with Power BI is a great idea

Do you know that there are more than 100 million users of Microsoft Teams? That makes it a great place for collaboration and productivity. If so, then integrating Microsoft Teams with Power BI is a good idea.

You can use Power BI to create dashboards displayed in the Teams channel, automatically populated with content from your team site (if you have one). This gives other people on your team easy access to key information without having to leave their chat threads or channels where they’re collaborating. You can also ask questions and get answers using Power BI Q&A, which will show up as notifications in the channel when someone answers your question—or if no one does, it’ll appear as an email notification instead!


Microsoft Teams is a modern workplace built from the ground up to help teams collaborate more easily and effectively. It’s packed with features like cloud-based file storage, real-time messaging, and much more. And now it has an even better tool for improving productivity: integration with Power BI.
