  • Edit and save customized views
  • Create personal dashboards (pin to new dashboard)
  • Analyze data in Excel or Power BI Desktop
  • Share with Excel Web App support
  • Share dashboards and collaborate with Microsoft 365 Groups
  • Integrate content with Microsoft Teams
  • A Premium Per User (PPU) license includes all the functionality of a Pro user, plus additional capabilities.

Power BI Pro or Premium Per User (PPU) is required to publish reports, share dashboards, collaborate with colleagues in workspaces and engage in other related activities. Power BI Pro isn't required to consume content in Premium capacity.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a Power BI Premium P2 Monthly Subscription?

A new Microsoft 365 account is always associated with a subscription that your purchase from Microsoft or a Cloud Solution Provider, also known as a reseller. The platform for the new account is called a tenant where the security, features and users are managed in a central administration site. Your tenant will be created and the Power BI Premium P2 Monthly Subscription provisioned as a part of the sign-up process.

How do I transfer my Microsoft 365 account?

Your Microsoft 365 tenant is independent of where you choose to purchase your subscriptions. You can purchase subscriptions directly from Microsoft or from a variety of official Cloud Solution Providers, also known as a reseller, at the same time. To transfer your Microsoft 365 account you only need to cancel the subscriptions with the other provider effective the start date of the new subscriptions.

Can I use my own domain with Office 365?

When a Microsoft 365 tenant is first provisioned its domain is created as "mycompany.onmicrosoft.com" where "mycompany" is a distinct name for the business or organization. When users are created their login user name by default will be "user1@mycompany.onmicrosoft.com" until a custom domain is added. To setup a custom domain with Microsoft 365 it only requires adding a few DNS settings with your domain registrar. Once this is done users can login with a more readable user name such as "user1@mycompany.com".

How do I download Office 365?

Many subscriptions in the Microsoft 365 suite of products or other Cloud Managegement software packages come with components that you download to your computer for use such as Office 365. Once your subscription is provisioned and assigned to a user the software can be downloaded from www.office.com. The user must be logged in with their Office 365 user account.
