The account registration screen will be displayed, so you will enter the necessary fields.


For user ID input, there is an input field on the left and right side of @, but you can include any name (name that has not yet been used) for personal use. Typically, put the name of the site on the right and the name of the person who uses the site on the left.

The mobile number input field below (enter the authorization code) is a field to enter the code obtained via your mobile phone to prevent automatic machine registration. If you choose "text message", you will receive a code by mobile mail, but you will hear the code by voice phone because it may not be available depending on the model or carrier.

If you choose to call, you'll get a call as soon as you send your phone number, so listen to the code from automatic voice and enter it.

In Power BI Q&A, you can automatically select and display the best tables and graphs for your content by entering what you want to see from the reports (PowerPivot or Power View) registered in Power BI Q&A. In addition, the sentence scan for "natural language" and can be searched in some free form.
