Power BI public alternative to Tableau public

Hi everyone,

I’m working on a school project and I would like to use Power BI to create my report. From what I’ve seen, Tableau has an option where anyone can publish a report for public consumption, see here:

What’s nice is that you can see what other reports an individual has published.

Is there an alternative to Power BI? I’d like to create my Power BI report and have it accessible by anyone on the web. Hopefully this can be done for free.

Thank you for any advice!

Thank you! Will having a free Power BI account allow me to share with the public via publish to web or do I need a Pro or Premium license?

Hi @EverythingZen , you may publish your report in web as long as your data is safe to publish online. Please see below links for some useful tips :slight_smile:

Thank you for checking in and yes, this is what I need. My only concern is that if I create a Power BI account using a gmail address as opposed to a work or school email that I may not be able to publish to web. I have Power BI access through my school account but they have blocked the ability to publish to web so I’ll have to try signing up with my personal email and see how far I get.

In my experience power bi doesn’t allow gmail(personal email address) Need to have business email address.
