Power BI integrated to Power Point question

I have integrated POWER BI to Powerpoint 2013 and created my presentation.

 

I created tiles that are from my powerbi dashboard.

 

my question is, will people I shared it with be able to open and make use of it even if they do not have power bi account?

 

thanks!

Re: Power BI integrated to Power Point question

I sent the file to a friend who doesn't have power bi account.

 

the file doesn't show the "trust this app" button. instead it said "could not connect to the catalog"

 

does this confirm that it can't be used by persons without power bi account?

 

any ideas on any work around for this?

@Worldbreaker

 

When you export report to PowerPoint, the content is offline. You don't need a Power BI account to view the data. I haven't encountered this issue before. Please check the document to see if you exceed any limilation.

Hi Simon

 

I did not use the export function. if I use the export function, there is no problem.

 

what I am having problems with is when I integrated the power bi into power point itself.

 

each time the users open the file, they need to click on the shield icon on the upper left corner and click on "trust this app".

 

what I found out is, if the user doesn't have powerbi account, the powerpoint will not show the data, after clicking the "trust this app".
