Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Love that you can export to ppt but hate the fact that it doesn't filter on slicers when allowing users to only be able to select a single item.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Did you find a way around text boxs and cards being duplicated on top of each other?  I am trying to export a report to powerpoint that has a ton of these.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Warning for anyone thinking of using the eport to powerpoint feature. There are a number of issues. It would be amazing if these could be addressed.

 

1) Date format is not persisted on any visuals or slicers if using dd/mm/yyyy. In power BI everything is configured correctly in the dd/mm/yyyy format, yet when the report is exported to powerpoint its converts it to mm/dd/yyyy - local machne has correct regional, language and date format settings

 

2) Text boxes still lose formatting. This is hugely frustraiting

 

3) Borders on visulisations sometimes mysteriously dissapear

 

4) Slicer does not persist the formating

 

5) Custom visulisations still not supported

 

6) Images and visualisations must not overlap

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Is there a way to export power bi reports to power point with the on premise power bi reports ?

 

Will this feature be implemented in the future ?

 

Kind regards,

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Thanks for your feedback!

 

This feature is currently in preview mode. We are aware of everything you described and they will be addressed before going to GA.

An exception to that is supporting session level slicers and filters (#4) that will be released post GA.

Please note that some custom visuals are already certified for export (#5). You can read more about it here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-custom-visuals-certified/

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi Elbe, thats great news, and thank you for such a quick response. I do love the Power Bi updates, and I know there are regular and great improvements all the time. 

 

Do you have an indication of when the PowerPoint export improvements will go into GA? After selling Power BI in as a sollution to a major client (my mistake for asuming the itegration with PowerPoint would be seamless), they now have to screen grab 12 pages of reports for 22 different clients every week. It is a real drag and a fail on my part. I do want to move them to online access, but PowerPoint to PDF is the only option for them at this moment.

 

Thanks again.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Can you we lease let me know if there will be a way that export to Power Point will be able to be use with PBI Premium Embedded.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Export from embedded artifacts is not in our immediate roadmap. To promote that, it would be great if you could vote on that idea in our Ideas forum: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi?WT.mc_id=Community&query=Office%20export

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

My horrible hopefully temporary workaround has been to use the snipping tool to grab screenshots of each Power BI report page and paste each one into powerpoint.

 

http://yourbusiness.azcentral.com/automatically-size-pictures-powerpoint-2549.html

 

This article describes how to resize pictures automatically in Power Point. After you set up the resizing, it describes choosing the picture file you want, but instead I just copy the screenshot, go back to power point, select the picture box without clicking the insert picture icon, and then paste your copied picture. It resizes the copy & paste the same way it would if you chose a picture file to put there.

 

It in no way replaces the need for Power BI to be able to export to Power Point properly, but it at least saves a little time until the feature is working.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

I'd like to suggest a feature... Iterate through a slicer during the export.

 

Let me explain... I have a dashboard with 3 tabs that have a country as slicer... Weekly I need to send each country leader a powepoint deck with these 3 views. It would be very convenient if export could iterate through the slicer and export views for each country into the powerpoint deck.

 

Hope I am making sense! )
