Blog: Power BI — Include a Report Support Tab — Episode 10

Welcome to Episode 10 of my Power BI Best Practices Series. In today’s episode, I will show you how to include a report support tab in your Power BI report. This tab helps your users see where the data comes from. Also, here you can include your contact information, so the users of your report will know how to reach you if they have questions.

Here we go!

Include a Report Support Tab

A report support tab stores auxiliary information. For example, you can place the data links here to easily discover the data source when needed. Also, you can place any other useful information on this tab. A report support tab is not mandatory. However, this is one of the developers’ best practices and the way to show some respect to the other users working with your report.

By the way, you may want to hide your report support tab from the users. So, consider marking this tab as hidden when you create or edit your report.
