Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

May I ask what could be the possible causes of errors in exporting to PPT? I keep getting Error Code 500 and the only custom vis object I have would be Matrix Preview, and there are some objects on my report that are overlapping, if that means anything.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Thank you for reaching out!

The error you get is not related to custom visuals in your report.

The export feature is in preview and we are activly working to improve it.

Apologies for inconvenience.

No worries! I'm just glad that the feature is there for us to use. 🙂 Hope it gets stable for regular use soon!

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi,

Love the Powerpoint feature, but have one question.

Is it possible to upload a Powerpoint as a template and use that instead of the conventional Microsoft branded powerpoint that is exported??

 

I want to use our company template, and wasn't sure if this was already a feature or if this was potentially on the future roadmap?

It would be an awesome addition.

 

Thanks,

Matt Eicher

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the feedback!

This is not planned in our immediate backlog however, the result Power Ponit deck can be edited so you can copy-paste the relevant report pages to a bigger scope and/ir templetized presentation.

I hope that helps,
Ella

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Greetings,

As we roll out Power BI within my company, we share how your team is working hard to continuously improve the product.  With regards to exporting to PowerPoint, is there a backlog of specific features that you have prioritized as the next to push to the preview function?  Can these be shared within this thread?  High on the list for us are a few items listed as limitations:

  • Custom visuals, and R visuals, are not currently supported. Any such visuals are exported as a blank image into PowerPoint.
  • In-session interactivity such as highlighting and filtering, drill-down, and so on, are not yet supported when exporting to PowerPoint. The exported PowerPoint shows the original visuals as they were saved in the report.

Many thanks,
Josh

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi Josh,

Thanks for reaching out. We do have a backlog of improvements but no slated release dates yet and the prioritization may change.
Specifically for the items you mentioned:

- Custom visuals support is activly being worked on. We plan to gradually support more more custom visuals starting April. The un-supported visuals however, should be exported with a relevant message today and ont a blank image.
- We are aware of the need for in-session interactivity and are looking into it. We do not have a release date for it yet.

Thanks,
Ella

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi Ella,

Thanks for the reply.

This doesn't really help us because the objective is for the users to be able to click 'export powerpoint' and have it in our format -- we don't want them having to change the powerpoint.

 

Maybe this could be put on the roadmap.

 

Thanks,

Matt

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Thanks. It is in our backlog, just not planned for the near future. We are periodically evaluating priorities and will take that into account.
