Feature Focus – QR Codes
Power BI now offers Quick Response codes (QR codes) in regards to Power BI reports through the Power BI service (for iOS consumption). QR codes are like barcodes- a scannable matrix with attached information, making report consumption easier and faster for iOS users. These QR codes can be sent electronically via email or you can print them out for quick distribution resulting in instant report analysis from anywhere at anytime. In the Power BI mobile application, open the QR scanner and scan the code to obtain any report generated by a QR code. To learn how to generate a QR code for a report located on PowerBI.com, watch the video below.
