How can we improve Power BI?

Export to PowerPoint with filters applied

PowerPoint Export to take into account filters that have been applied to the report prior to export. This is essential for users which need to filter on historic dates and then wish to export the report with those details.

    Hey all – we’re looking into how best to tackle this and other filter/slicer-related functionality. We’ve put together a short survey to better understand different use cases and what improvements would make the experience better.  If you have a few moments, the survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.  We appreciate your feedback!

        Any update on this ability? I have an idea for a report that would allow my Pro license users to export with their chosen filters selected, but currently we have to use our legacy solution. We also sell BI tools and big selling point is always the ease of sharing reports in many different ways.

        Any update Microsoft? Newbie to Power BI. Incredibly powerful tool, but often a report is needed to share with management/clients. I know they should move to new age of digital visuals but so far a report is a report. Within my organisation I have spoken to several people interested in using Power BI but they all desist once they understand that you can't translate the analytics and visuals into a report that is shareable. At least creating powerpoints with selected filters (in our case) would be a work around. Not perfect but manageable for the time being.

        Please, also correct the background image when exporting to Powerpoint. This image is completely out of position in Powerpoint after export!

        Hi Sirui Sun,

        we really need to have this possibility for your end users.

        Can you please open again the survey so we can answer or give us an update on this ?

        Thanks,
        Filipa

        I second all of the responses below, but would like to include that the drilling functionality should 'stick' when exporting to PPT as well. This is a huge limitation for my company, and is forcing us to delay full implementation of the dashboards we have built

        Hi, I tried to do the survey but it's no longer available. Any news on this topic ? To have this available will be great and very usefull.

        We really need a possibility to export the results of a filtered report and not all the information (without a filter).

        It's high time that Power BI provides dashboard export option to PDF / PPT with interactive format. Hey Microsoft listening...

        Need users to be able to make filter/slicer selections on each page and then export the entire report with those selections. I also second somebody else who suggested being able to choose which pages get exported, but that is secondary to being able to export filtered reports since you can already export single filtered pages as pdf. A better option might be an option to Export, then you choose which pages to export, then you choose what type of file to output your selections to.

        Important when export to power point:

        1. Each ppt slide could have a direct URL/link to a page with specific filters applied. (not only general link to a report on powerbi.com). It gives a user possibility to quickly jump to data, get the latest one, see current view.

        2. Each ppt slide could have info about filters applied. Maybe another link or in Power Point notes or just a small text on a bottom of a slide. It is important because there cases one view can be filtered on dozens of combinations.

        "SAP Business Objects" has a feature that enables exporting an "Interactive Dashboard" from SAP BO to Power Point as well as to PDF that remains INTERACTIVE in PPS and PDF formats! It would be worth taking a look at this feature, especially both Power BI and Power Point are the Microsoft Products!
