Export Reports to Powerpoint/PDF

For the past few months I've been exporting reports from Power BI directly to Powerpoint, without a problem.  I've read that Power BI has a limit on exporting 30 pages or more, and my reports are around 20 pages. Today when I tried to export a report, I received a message saying that I cannot exceed 15 pages??? Did microsoft change this at some point?  Or is this some sort of a temporary glitch. Below is the message that I keep receiving. Any information is greatly appreciated.

Hi, @wfarrell19 

The same result  on my side of the test.

And there is a workaround currently:

User can add "?increasedExportPowerPointSectionLimit=1" at the end of url in the browser.

Hi @wfarrell19,

 

We've built a tool called BI Helper https://bihelper.tech/ to automate the generation of  PDF / PPTX reports from Power BI (Pro and Premium), with slicers and filters applied.

With BI Helper, you can select report pages to print, schedule and generate multi-page PDF / PPTX reports and email them to your users. BI Helper has an option to include matrix and table visuals as Excel files, and lots of other advanced features. Our users routinely run reports of up to 30 pages, with the process fully automated from report generation to delivery. 


BI Helper is simple to configure and use with your Power BI reports and dashboards. It is secure and scalable (hosted on AWS) and offers a 14 day free trial. Try it out and let us know how it works for you. 

 

Thanks, 

Kiran Hosakote
