Changes to Power BI Free are coming on 1 June 2017
Friday 12th May 2017
Power BI Free is being enhanced to have the same feature set as Power BI Pro, however dashboard sharing will only be available with Power BI Pro, not BI free. Existing users of the free service who have been active within the past year, will be offered a free 12-month extended trial of Power BI Pro, so make sure your users log in and use it this month. Power BI desktop continue to be available for free.
Microsoft have also published a Power BI Premium calculator for you to gain an insight into expected costs. More pricing information can also be found here.
