This new feature is great! However, we have complex reports that have more than 15 pages so this currently won't work for our main reports.
After testing on a smaller report, I have some feedback:
When exporting to Powerpoint, the functionality to select which pages to print would be great. Perhaps a thumbnail view to select the required slides? We have large, complex reports and don't want to separate these into smaller reports so this feature would be brilliant.
We would most likely use this feature to provide a 'moment in time' snapshot of figures (usually carried out monthly). Therefore, it would be beneficial to be able to apply filters to the report that will remain when it is exported to Powerpoint. e.g. we often use a month filter to select a particular time period, we can then compare the data to previous years.
I am having a issue when I use the export to Power Point feature. When I Export my report to PowerPoint, it changes the Euro sign (€) to the well known Dollar Sign ($). Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
Thanks in advance!
I am using Power BI Desktop Version: 2.45.4704.722 64-bit (April, 2017).
There is no "File" option in the menu bar.
There is no "Export to PowerPoint" in the drop down list to the left of "Home" (I do not know how to call it.)
What am I missing?
I have some slicers on the report, AttributeSlicers and Slicers, and encounter some problems when applying filters and exporting the filtered report to PPT:
1. AttributeSlicer filter doesn't work with Export to PPT
2. I have pro license, and filtered report through Slicer can be exported to PPT after using 'Save As' or 'Save'; but other people who I shared the dashboard can't export the filtered report to PPT since they don't have 'Save as' or 'Save' under 'File' menu. I am not sure if a pro license is needed for a user to use 'Save' or there's somewhere I can give them 'write' access so that they are able to save the filtered report then export the filtered report.
@Erin001 The slicer selections don't export to PowerPoint currently - we definitely need this! According to MS, adding this functionality is on the road map.
The only person who can have "write" access to a report saved on your account is you. If you were collaborating with others in a group workspace where the report was published instead of publishing to your workspace, the other group members could have "write" access to the report, but only Pro license holders can have group workspaces. As far as I know, this is the only setup that allows multiple people to have write access to one report.
I have been using the snipping tool to take screenshots of reports I need to export and sticking them in PowerPoint in the meantime. This link is an article that shows you how to have pictures automatically sized to the powerpoint slide size, which at least makes it a little less tedious.
