We are making some of our reports available as a Power BI dashboard. As these are complicated for us to auto install and we are not sure how much everyone will use them we are just giving you the files and these instructions on how to connect them. Power BI is typically free for Office365 users. The Power BI file for ID568 is attached at the bottom of this post. Please use this to connect ID568/eAuto Activity Trends to Power BI.
We are starting with this simple dashboard example. (ID770 - Financial Dashboard now in beta, ID771 - Service, coming soon.
Note we went with a new easier connection for all newer Power BI dashboards, use this page just for ID568 until we update that.
