How can we improve Power BI?

Printing custom visualizations

It would be helpful to be able to print custom visualizations to PowerPoint. Currently there is just a message saying that the visualizations are not currently supported. Even allowing the visuals to be frozen in a picture format would be acceptable. Thanks.

        Yes, printshot would be OK, no need to create pictures for each visuals.
        Also, if there is an image as background, it's better to have a unique picture than a different one per visuals, as the visuals will not be at the exact same place in the report, etc..

        I have to make reports for customers who doesn't have access to Power BI, and I have to manually make a screenshot of the reports I want to share and copy/paste it into a power point, to convert in PDF...

        It's a long and ennoying process, and it could be done so quickly only with one click..
        Thanks =)

        surely this can be done as the power points aren't interactive, they are just images with links to the particular section of the report. Even custom visuals which don't show have the correct linking back to Power BI.

        Oh God! I started using Infographic and Facet Key visuals from today! :(

        This is bad news... please enable this feature, even as an image would do.

        Totally Agree.
        At least it should exist for very famous custom visuals that are widely used, such as the "Chiclet Slicer" (URL images). For some other custom visuals it would be good also. (make it available for the top 10 most used custom visuals)

        PS : I made a request today to ask exatly that. Then it is redundant, you can delete this request.

        Agree even a picuture would be fine, maybe even add that as an option for all graphics
