Connecting the Power BI Template Apps

In addition to connecting to the Acterys database from scratch from Power BI, Acterys offers comprehensive Power BI templates.

The Acterys Power BI Template Apps are the easiest way to generate a comprehensive set of Power BI reports for your HubSpot, MYOB, NetSuite, QuickBooks, Xero, WorkflowMax or Xero Practice Manager data.

This App connects to your Acterys repository, not to the source accounting/SaaS systems directly. If you have not imported the data from Xero to Acterys using the process described in the points below the Power BI App report will only show sample data. If you want to use the App with your own data add your service (e.g. MYOB, NetSuite, QuickBooks, Xero, etc.) in the “App” Menu.
