Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

That's pretty slick. It seemed to duplicate some of my Text boxes and some of my card visualizations it didn't seem to honor all of my settings but overall, really, really cool. That's awesome!

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

I had the same thing with text boxes.  Seems that if a text box is overlapping another chart the image for the chart will pick up the text too.  Overall, it looks great and I'll be able to use this feature right away.  Now hopefully R and custom visuals support will be added shortly.

Thank you very much for the hard work, Microsoft Team!

It would be nice to have custom visuals working and interactive features function in the future! 🙂

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Fantastic!  Looking forward to cross filtering within PP, but absolutely brilliant having this even as a static presentation.

 

That said, some of my larger, more complex data models don't want to play along.  Getting the following error:

 

Unable to export to PowerPoint

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

@tzvikei I saw this last night and started playing right away. I experienced why there is a high recommendation to remove background images, will that be a resolved issue in the future or will it always be recommended to keep the images removed?

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Thank you for the work done.

But unfortunately my export did not work well. 

Not all elements are exported, some are missed, alignment is broken, size of elements differs from the original.

In general cannot use it in work yet.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hey Microsoft Team, thought I would post a link to the PowerPoint that was created. I did this with the Ohio Primary and Secondary Education report posted in the Data Stories Gallery so that you can see what the real report looks like versus what was exported. Perhaps that will help you guys troubleshoot some of the issues. 

 

Great new feature and I hope I don't sound too shocked about how well it worked for me already. But, I was rather pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure how to say that without coming off like I'm dissing you guys but I truly am not!! 🙂
