On the 28th of April Microsoft announced the release of a preview feature in Attract: the Analytics tab. The hiring teams can get insight into their recruiting pipeline. The application is using Power BI Embedded. This means you get all the great features of Power BI—filtering, user level security, and data refreshes out of the box—with no Power BI license required. To enable this feature, you must do the following:

  1. License the Comprehensive Hiring Add-on
  2. In your Attract environment, go to the Admin Center ->Feature Management -> Turn Analytics ON.
  3. Verify your newly added tab for Analytics, under Email templates. You will get 2 types of analytics, for Pipeline Summary and for Funnel Analysis.
  4. The reports are released with two key features: Cross-filtering and Export to Excel.

 

You can read more details on the Microsoft Community announcement, here.

But what happens if you don’t have the Comprehensive Hiring Add-on? You can always get these reports by connecting Power BI to CDS and accessing your data from the available entities. However, you will not be able to embedded these charts and reports in Attract. However, we could create a model-driven app in PowerApps and offer these charts to the users.

If you need help with Power BI reports, you can always contact me and my company.
