Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the Power BI pbix report file in the above folder - it should look like this:

Power BI Themes Templates

You may need to apply the JSON custom theme included in the above folder to get this exact look.

Before saving the report as a template (the point of this exercise), delete the original dataset to get the following:

Power BI Templates

This will appear to have ruined all your hard work, your life and any hope you had at happiness, but not to worry!

It is high time the report became a Power BI template.  To make this happen choose Export from the File menu:

Exporting a template

Save the template with the name Report template and add a suitable description.

Open the template (this will have the effect of creating a new report based upon it).

Use the CSV file in the above folder to repopulate the visuals using different data, and watch as they come to life with interesting facts:

Power BI Desktop Templates

Ok so interesting might not mean compatible, but look how fast that bird is!

Optionally save your new report, then close it down. 

You can unzip this file to see the answers to this exercise, although please remember this is for your personal use only.
