Power BI service allows you to create a Dashboard to using existing reports visuals.
A power BI Dashboard is a single page canvas and collection of single or multiple report visuals, that uses visualizations to tell a summary.
The visualizations you see on the dashboard are called tiles and are pinned to the dashboard by report designers.
When you click to any tile of dashboard it takes you to the report page where the visualization was created.
Before creating a dashboard you have to know How to create a Report & Publish Report to Cloud.
