Here is a detailed step-by-step blog post explaining how to use the the new Add-in: Integrating Power BI Tiles into Office documents

But what exactly is a Tile?

A tile is a snapshot of your data, pinned to the dashboard. A tile can be created from a report, from a dataset, from another dashboard, or from the Q&A box. (source: Dashboard tiles in Power BI)


Why this app is so cool?

Now you don’t need to take snapshots of your visualizations and update your documents before a meeting or presentation. This add-in will allow you to create dynamic documents with “refreshable” PowerBI tiles, that you can share with other people even if they don’t have the “PowerBI Tiles” application installed.

This will be his first year in the MVP program and we are thrilled to have two colleagues active on the program now.

“DevScope congratulates João Sousa for his new achievement as .NET MVP. All his extensive contribution to the .NET Developers Community is impressive and reflects our culture and our beliefs: that no one is limited by the size of our town or country when our potential market is Global.
We thrive to balance a quality lifestyle, to living and grow a family, while we work with people everyday sitting thousands of kilometers away. Thank you João for putting such an effort helping others succeed and for being an inspiration for many others in our team. Congratulations João”

Márcia Teixeira, HR Manager

“As developers, and problem solvers, we depend extensively from peers. Not only publicly through google, stackoverflow, technet, msdn, but also by the network of colleagues we can reach and discuss about any issue. Our life would be immensely harder if no one published about that bug, workaround or link we need every day.  Our team reflects that sharing spirit and I’m proud our people is discovering that all those seeds we plant are giving back at us good things too. Thank you João for believing.”

José António Silva, R&D Director

João requested us to share is acknowledgment here too:

“I want to thank all my coworkers at DevScope for their amazing support. Special thanks to Sandro Pereira for being such tireless mentor, helping me with countless tips to get this award.”

João Sousa, Senior Software Engineer, DevScope S.A.
