In my mind it seems quite this sounds simple but I'm having trouble with understanding how I can get it to work.
All I have found is the PowerApp visual integration in Power BI but I don't want users going into Power BI so I don't think it is of use.
Is this achievable?
Yes you can do this, but there's a subtle difference from what you've described:
Power BI simply reads the same data source(s) that you have accessed and edited with your app. They aren't a special data type for Power BI - they are a Sharepoint List, Excel file, or any other supported data source.
Also, keep in mind Power BI does not continuously scan data sources for changes unless you have the licencing and have enabled this. With a per user Power BI Pro licence, you can set up a schedule of data refreshes, up to a maximum of number per day (8 if I remember right). Therefore, depending on that schedule, your user's new/edited entry may not be reflected in a Power BI dashboard for a while.
Does that help?
hi @JmeBrey in a sense you have answered yourself ;). Once you have created your power bi dashboard and its available in the workspace, a user which have access to the Power Bi service will be able to view the data in the tile, no need to login as they will be already logged in via the power app.
id the power bi service licensing is an issue you best look at a separate way to visualize the data.
which visuals were you thinking?
hope this helps
