Export Dashboards to PDF / PNG for offline access & easily present anywhere

It is often a requirement from clients as Dashboards could not be shared outside of organization domain, make it available for export in any suitable format like Power Point or PDF or PNG/JPG or Excel, so that other party can easily visualize and present it. Also this can serve as a useful case for offline access as well. Good to have an export option.

Re: Export Dashboards to PDF / PNG for offline access & easily present anywhere

You already can share the report through the PowerBI app from Windows or your IOS device and email an image of the report by or share it through OneNote.

However, having export to Excel and PDF feature would be really nice.

I believe you can only share Dashboard Tiles, and not reports using the apps, but this is a very good point, the apps definitely help with sharing the image.

You might want to vote on this suggestion as I think it is along the lines of what you are requesting.

Re: Export Dashboards to PDF / PNG for offline access & easily present anywhere

I can see how to share from your IOS device and email an image of a tile.

Annotate and share a snapshot of a tile from the iPad app (Power BI for iOS)

 

How can you share into OneNote? Is it the same process?

 

Agree, Export to PDF would be nice.

Re: Export Dashboards to PDF / PNG for offline access & easily present anywhere

This seems to be a fundamental oversight. There is no current way to print or export your reports or dashboards (complete). Users want the ability to include in management report packs (offline).

 

The email from iOS is not suitable as the image quality is poor. Same goes for screen prints.

 

Not sure how this thread is marked as solved??

Re: Export Dashboards to PDF / PNG for offline access & easily present anywhere

It's a must have requirement that all users are requesting everytime we present the PwoerBI tool. It woul be very nice to have at least the same option already available on PowerView on Sharepoint "save as ppt". Some users are rejecting the solution just because they cann't export the reports/dashbords to PDF or PPT format. And it's realy too bad that the solution is rejected for a such misssing feature.

Re: Export Dashboards to PDF / PNG for offline access & easily present anywhere

According to the feedback forum, work on this has started - Export to pdf was merged with the 'Allow proper printing' request that has 1600+ votes so they do listen.

 

This is a must have to my users. I noticed on one of the comments in the feedback forum that one of the Microsoft reps had stated that this was appearing very soon - fingers crossed for the November update as this is a must have in the Power BI desktop also!

Exporting to PDF/printing did not appear in november or december update, so this is still the dealbreaker for my company. They won't use Power BI widespread until proper exports are available.
