Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Does anyone else get blank slides when they export?

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

When I did "Export to PowerPoint (Preview)", the downloaded PPTX file is just WHITE pages.

 

I have only 6 tabs, NO custom visuals used in the report.

I just have a page background (Image), Company logo on the top and the imported Theme.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hello

 

In-session interactivity (highlighting and filtering, drill-down) is not supported yet when exporting the report. You will see the original visualizations as they were saved in the report.

 

In our requirement, different users are required to filter their data according to their need in many different ways and then make a PPT presentation with it.

 

PowerBI works marvellous for the first part, and it is quite dissapoining to find an "Export to PPT" button that didn't respected their filtering.

 

Please resolve this limitation would turn a simple click into a hugely time-saving feature.

 

I hope more and more people are encountering this need and we can get PowerBI Team to fix it.

 

Thanks

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

I've noticed that the date that gets picked up for the 'Last data refresh' label shown on the cover page of the exported PowerPoint deck seems to be the date my pbix file was last modified. My report has a live connection to an SSAS cube but I don't update the actual pbix file very often. This is confusing the users of my report since when they export they look at the Last data refresh date and think that the data is terribly out of date.  

 

Is there any way to choose which date gets displayed? I would like to use a specific measure from my SSAS data source, but I'd settle even for showing the dataset last refresh time!

 

 

Thanks,

Lisa

Hi all,

 

The empty slides issue is now resolved.

 

Please save again the report before exporting.

 

Sorry again for the inconvenience,

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

this is still not working for me. Only if I use the February release does it work.
