I tried to export to PowerPoint but it created blank slides. I can export to PowerPoint by using existing examples created by Power BI itself. However, for my own report, I could not export.

It is due to an outage. Check https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/support/. It will be back when Microsoft applies a patch, hopefully, in a day or two.

Same here. Power BI is virtually useless to us if we can't export to PPT. Please fix ASAP

Hi All,


I find that same issue has been reported internally to Power BI Team: CRI 33019187

I’ll post here once I get any update about it.

thanks. please keep us posted.


it has crippled our workflow because we depend on disseminating performance KPIs through PPTs to various levels of the organisation and we now face a huge overhead of taking schreenshots and doing patchworks in PPT.
