Embedded reports in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations

Dynamics 365 F&O allows users to embed reports within the application, making it easy to access important data and insights without having to switch between different systems. Embedded reports are created using Microsoft’s Power BI reporting platform and can be customized to meet the specific needs of the user.

How to edit embedded reports in analytical workspaces

To embed a report in Dynamics 365 F&O, you first need to create the report in Power BI. Once the report is created, you can publish it to the Power BI service and configure it to be embedded in Dynamics 365 F&O. This involves setting up an app workspace in Power BI, granting access to the workspace for Dynamics 365 F&O users, and configuring the report’s embedding settings.

Once the report is embedded, users can access it directly from within Dynamics 365 F&O. Reports can be embedded on various forms, dashboards, and workspaces, allowing users to access the information they need in the context of their work.

Points to consider

  • Customizations are limited to the report design canvas. Users can’t change the definitions of report data sets.
  • Report customizations that are made to the analytical workspace apply to all users in the environment.
  • The service automatically preserves report customizations during product upgrades.
  • The service doesn’t support the export of customizations that are made to analytical workspaces

How to customize workspace in Dynamics 365 F&O

User should have an access to System report editor role to customize the embedded application workspace.
