This is episode 12 recorded on August 23rd, 2017 where we talk about the new SharePoint Communication Sites, OneDrive’s new sharing functionality, when times are not times, and the difference between embedding reports & Power BI Embedded.
SharePoint Communication Sites and Power BI – a security nightmare? Where to put the report…..
Comm sites do not tie to an Office 365 Group, therefore no Power BI Workspace to publish to

John White recently published a couple of posts to help clarify the licensing requirements around the Power BI web part for SharePoint. The first, “

The second, “
Power BI Embedded is not for Embedding Power BI Reports” discusses the Premium model in Power BI Embedded, and why it’s not appropriate for use with SharePoint.
