Convert Powerview to Power BI

Good day!

 

We have existing excel powerview reports with drilldowns, is it possible to convert them to power bi?

 

Or is there a way to export powerview reports to power bi?

 

Thanks!

Re: Convert Powerview to Power BI

@cante You can easily convert your Excel workbook artifacts (models, reports) by downloading the latest update of Power BI Desktop tool here. Find the image given below to import your Excel data into Power BI

Powerview reports will render in Power BI.  Simply go to connect to data> Local files> and then just upload the powerview/Excel file.

For further readings by others @Gregs138 solution keeps the drill down feature in PowerVIew by using the old report canvas in browser ( visuals rendering engine ) while @ashishrj converts them to the new visual engine ( new report canvas )..

At least until this functionallity added in PBI Desktop the only way to keep drill down is @Gregs138 solution..

@konstantinos I understand now what you mean, there are actually two types of report canvas - old and new.

 

Uploading them to the app.powerbi lets you choose between the old and new. Whatever we have implemented in our existing powerviews can be rendered in both. However, in the 'new' type not all graphs are supported yet including drilldowns.

 

Meanwhile, importing via the powerbi desktop only renders the powerview to a 'new' one.

 

I think @Gregs138's answer is the most correct one.

Hi,

 

I do not get imported my power view visualizations into powe BI. Powerview tabs are created in power BI but no the charts within my power view tabs. 

 

Any idea on what is it happening?
