Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

I got 2 issues with this feature:

  • Could not export with Safari Version 10.0 (12602.1.50.0.10)
  • Custom visual could not be exported

I will go on updating for my observation

Excellent.... long awaited feature has finally surfaced.

I believe lot of efforts and time have already been invested and I am sure MS team must be working on to further improvise features available as of now. So anxiously look forward to see custom visuals "in action" too with many more.

All Kudos to MS team.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Great to hear finally one of most expected feature have been added to PowerBI. Good job!

As others mentioned there are some issues with text objects - does not look nice after export to ppt.

My doubt is also...

What if my visualization can be filtered on many different ways? I would like to choose filters other than current one to be added to my presentation too. Did you consider this?

Useless for us. Highly disappointed.

Dear Tzvi

 

Enjoy? After waiting almost a year - I thougth that we get an awsome feature. But the export to PPT is far away of what your customers asked for. The idea was to have a feature enabling us to work more efficient with reports on paper, but what has been released is probably not usable for the most of the 4000+ supporter of the idea. To get the same result, I just print the report as PDF... So there is no benefit - except having single pictures of what I got also with a screenshot. I'm still not able to export the reports in a propper way in our CI/CD, there is no template setting, no filtering, each report with custom visuals is not usable, no export schedule or report subscription.

 

We continue to print the screen of our 20 page reports filtered for HQ and 18 subsidiaries (360 Screenshots each week) as we had to do before and start looking to a third party tool.

 

In my opinion, it is just sad that Microsoft can't properly implement their own Office Products into their solution - we faced the same with CRM2011/2016 where we had to implement 3rd party solution to print content to Word/PDF.

 

Personally, I'm highly disappointed and angry, because I internally "sold" a "solution is coming soon" since April to the management. We have 400+ PBI Pro licences - and are still not able to get the reports properly on paper for management review and official reporting issues.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

A good step towards being able to print high quality images of our reports.

Measures that contain text are chopped off and there are slight alignment issues.

 

I personally would say concentrate on getting these slight type of bugs fixed first before things like making it interactive.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

It seems that if you click on the error for custom visuals and delete it then your visual should be hidden underneath this.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

This is great - this saves me a screenshot - copy - paste into Word then print to PDF process. PowerPoint output makes it really flexible for presentations etc.

 

I have an issue with the way it treats text boxes. These seem to be printed twice with slightly different treatment of word wrap in each.

 

Thanks

Looking good, although majority of my reports came back with the error below (or a similar one):

Is this maybe due to the size of the data sets it is reporting on?
