To foster a healthy data culture, it’s important for organizations to provide a way for users to quickly find reliable and high-quality data that answers their business questions. In Power BI, most users start discovering their data mining journey on Home – a personalized landing page that provides one-click access to metrics that matter the most.
When Home was first introduced in September 2018, a significant number of report authors and administrators requested for an ability to control what content shows up on Home for their end users. Organizations also wanted to customize the first-run experience for new users entering the service.
“Sound exciting? Read on for more details on how to start using this feature in your tenant.”
First, you need to enable the feature. As a tenant admin, go to the Tenant settings in the Admin portal and enable the Featured content feature switch. Once it’s enabled, make sure you define the select group of users or security groups (aka “promoters”) that have permissions to promote content to Home. In most cases, these are content authors that are responsible for building and distributing analytics to end users.
In addition to being part of the select group of users that have permissions to promote content in the Featured content tenant settings, workspace members also need to have Write permissions to reports, dashboards, or apps in order to promote them. Once users have the appropriate permissions, the rest is easy.
