Being productive, in reality, refers to the amount of value you can generate daily for continuous improvement. Thankfully, there are applications like Notion that will undoubtedly help with your productivity.
While this is great, a dashboard that provides an overview of everything will take your productivity to the next level. This article will help you discover how to embed a Power BI dashboard into Notion.
What are Notion and Power BI?
Notion is an all-in-one productivity tool that helps professionals organize everything they need. With Notion, you can capture thoughts, assign tasks, take meeting notes, manage projects, create spreadsheets, reminders, databases, and run an entire company according to the Notion’s team just the way you want. Steve Huffman, Co-founder & CEO of Reddit, once said, “Notion is so good it makes a devilishly complex problem seem simple.”
On the other hand, Power BI is a data analysis and visualization service that allows professionals to connect to any data source, model and get insight from their data, and create interactive visualizations, reports, and dashboards. Microsoft Power BI got a hand in it by aggregating, modeling, analyzing, visualization, collaborating, and everything related to “DATA.” In simple terms, Power BI allows you to turn your data into insights and opportunities.
Now imagine you could have an embedded interactive Power BI dashboard showing all your critical KPIs right in your Notion’s meeting notes, planner, or even goal tracker.
Sounds interesting, right? Let’s see how you can achieve this
- Basic Understanding of Power BI.
- A published Power BI dashboard.
- A notion account; you can create one via the notion sign-up page.
Let’s get started
Notion allows you to embed online content from videos, music, Google Maps, Figma mockups, Typeform, Deepnote, PDF documents, and even spreadsheets.
And at the moment, even a Power BI dashboard in just three simple steps.
Log in to Power BI service. If you don’t have a published dashboard yet, you can publish one from Power BI desktop.
Once on Power BI service, locate the report or dashboard in your workspace and copy the “Publish to web” (public) embedded link.
Open Notion, type “/” and paste the link. Then, click on Create embed.
Your dashboard should load after a while. After this happens, resize the embedded dashboard to your liking.
The beautiful thing about this is that your dashboard will remain in sync with your data and remain interactive. You can play around with the dashboard on this page.
