NOT WORKING: Export data from Power BI report visuals in Microsoft Teams

Hi all,

we have encountered issues with exporting data from Power BI report visuals that were embedded into Microsoft Teams.

Background:

We have created a report on Power BI desktop, data source SQL Server DB.

Published the report to a Power BI Workspace (workspace is publishing onto Premium Capacity EM1).

Then went to a Teams app and added a Power BI tile and added the report.

 

What happens:

I go to teams app and I am able to view the report, however, the moment I hit the "Export Data" (left corner "..." of the visual options), I get as far as able to select what type of export I want, click "Export" and then nothing happens.

 

I have tried this with various workspaces and various reports, however, this does not really seem to work. Anybody is having same issue/knows a workaround?

 

I looked online and on forums, but I wasn't lucky finding a solution so I also raised a ticket with MS support and waiting for response - I will share in case they resolve it, but would also appreciate if anyone could share any more info about this.

 

Thanks loads,

Kristina

Hi,

 

I just got an email from support saying that this is not a bug but a feature that is not yet supported. Which is a surprise as initially I got a response that it is a bug. Now the only thing we can do is to vote for this to get added unfortunately - so if you are experiencing th same issues, please, vote for this:

 

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32404315-the-power-bi-integrat...

 

Although it is weird that in the above email the support confirmed that it was a bug and now it changed to unsupported feature - bit shady tbh.

 

But I guess, nothing I can do about it.

Hope this gets added soon as a supported feature though.

 

Thanks,

Kristina

Hi all, I just accidentally tried the export and now it works on teams, so looks like this has been fixed - YEEEY!

@kbachova,

Are you able to get it work now? I can successfully export data from the report in Microsoft Teams, but I published the Power BI report to a shared workspace.

Hi Lydia,

 

still unable to export data. My report is published on a Power BI Workspace and the content is even shared to the Premium Capacity (EM1).

 

Still waiting on the response from the support team.

 

Thanks,

Kristina

@kbachova,

Do you still get the issue when publishing pbix file to a normal workspace(not premium workspace)?

Re: NOT WORKING: Export data from Power BI report visuals in Microsoft Teams

Hey all. Have you look in your Downloads folder?  I just exported the data from a PBI visual in MS Teams.  I went through the process and clicked OK thinking that I would be give a dialog box to save the file to a local folder, but nothing happened.  So, I thought I was getting the same bug.  However, I just happened to look in my Downloads folder and the Excel file for the visual was there.
