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 in it, 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 during the export PowerBI could iterate through the slicer and export views for each country into the powerpoint deck.

 

Hope I am making sense! )

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hey,

 

we have been testing the export function on project reports that are handed out to customers. The feedback is that the quality of the exported pictures are too low, they look fudgy on large screens and HD monitors...so sad!

 

Please just give us a real PPT export that supports the graphs as actual graphs (vectors) and not pictures.

 

Thanks!

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hey!  Enjoy the comments on this thread and have learned lots.  Is there a way other than Power BI tiles to dynamically link a visualization from Power BI into PPT so that it automatically updates with each data refresh.  If this was explained earlier and I missed it, please forgive.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi 

 

Can we export the report in the .ppt file without the first slide which came with every report (Name  & link of the report  are displayed on that slide)?

 

Do we have any way to remove that slide from ppt file at the time of export itself?

 

 

Let me know possible ways.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

One more thing that I would love to see added:

- The ability to export without embedded links to the report.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

I have two issues that I have not yet been able to resolve:

 

1) Everytime I export to PowerPoint, the first page of the presentation (excluding the cover page) always has grey boxes instead of the visualisations. As a work around, I have to duplicate the first page - one will then display the grey boxes and the other will display correcrlt in PowerPoint. (It makes no difference if I save the report before exporting as mentioned in previous posts). 

 

2) I have created several textboxes with hyperlinks my report, however, all of the hyperlinks are removed when exported to PowerPoint. They then have to be manuallly added back into the presentation. Very annoying...

 

Any suggestions to resolve these issues would be appreciated. Particularly around the hyperlinks issue. Thanks!

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi leylandv,

 

Thanks for your feedback!

 

1) We are not aware of this problem. I would be glad if you can share more details on our support email: 

mpbisup@microsoft.com.

 

2) The export is creating images by taking a snapshot, thus the hyperlinks are no longer working.

 

Regards,

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi, 

 

I'm having trouble exporting when using a page dimension other than 16:9. 16:9 works great, but is often too short. 

 

Letter exports with a large grey area on the left of the chart and crops the right hand side of the chart. 

 

Custom dimensions are equally as buggy. I did find the problem is less apparent if using a custom dimension such as 1920 x 1080 which is still 16:9 just larger... but it still crops off certain sections of the chart. 

 

It would be great to be able to export images of individual charts. (To be honest that's what I'm trying to do, going through PowerPoint is the only way I can achieve this at the moment)

 

Thank you.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

I absolutely agree with this.

 

We're trying to generate a PowerPoint with branded content and a background image. Firstly, background images don't show up in PowerPoint exports which is really annoying. So we are just trying to use an Image, but that makes the whole page clickable pointing to the Power BI website unless you remove the hyperlinks...

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Yeah, currently we use the export to PowerPoint a lot, and we use a macro to remove all the hyperlinks that are automatically embedded.

 

However, it would be great if it is possible to export to PowerPoint without those hyperlinks embedded, or an option somewhere to enable/disable this.
