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!
We definitely need this feature. Being able to export from desktop would be amazing too.

A response to this community will be appreciated. Give us something to munch on

We need this too - badly - I just created a series of visualisations that require a filter and to be published separately for our different clients. As it is now, i would have to publish that many times
Laura Johnson-Morris commented
This seems to work. First, apply your desired filters to the report. Then, create a bookmark. Finally, go to Reading View and view that bookmark. When you export to PowerPoint, it will export that bookmarked view with filters applied.

We need this ASAP to support additional adoption of Power BI. Thanks!
Seriously Microsoft this isn't a difficult thing to implement - it IS however something that is seriously hampering many organisations adoption of Power BI.
Adeel Ahmad commented
Please, please, do this already. This one of our biggest roadblocks for an enterprise enablement.
Also, my frustration is that this is not a new idea. This previous idea asking for the exact same thing was marked as completed with an extremely limited preview functionality. Come on Microsoft, you cannot complete a 10% build of a feature and call it delivered! This is the previous idea -
The current idea should really have 784 + 2092 = 2876 votes (as of 3/1/2018) and thus should be among the top features you have on your backlog. This is not how any one of us want you to do community driven development.
This is a must-have feature so teams can easily and seamlessly share their data.
Please, we need a status on this feature!
I need this in a contet of embedded report to provide a coherent service for our customers.
Any status on this feature? It has been over a year since the last update and I am beginning to get more users requesting the ability to do this.

This is a limiting feature - asking users to save multiple copies of the Power Bi dashboard with filters so that it can be exported to PowerPoint is ridiculous. When is this feature expected to be made available?
Giorgio Di Egidio commented
I am literally exalted by the tool, an evolution for those who create reports!
But I found this thing limiting that once the report is shared, users can not export the filtered report to POWER POINT.
I have many users, the solution today is to use the windows capture tool. (keeps only the filtered data in origin, and users can not save the filtered copy and then export PPT)
Power BI allows you to do everything ... it's awesome!
Please think about this little thing, it will be useful to hundreds of people (in my case) in global terms world ... I believe tens of thousands of people!

This is a major 'lack'.
If I publish a report to my users, I would not expect them to, even have the ability, to save the report with applied settings in order to be able to export the correct report-view.
I am pleased to see that the support for filters syncing across multiple report pages is now available in the February release. Also the cross filtering across multiple visuals. Persisting filter settings on a user is soon to be published in the online service.
But still the filter settings are not persisted when exporting to PPT.
I would expect this would be a 'quick fix' when all of the above is available in the service and application.
Ronny Hagen commented
Now, when the cross highlighting and report-wide filtering is released with the February release, do you see any progress on the ability export to ppt with the applied filter settings?
This functionnality is really needed, when will it be available?
Data after filitered cant be viewed after downloading it to PPT
Djamel DJEDID commented
Hello, any updates on this. Even some high level roadmap information would help. Thank you.
Time for an update please?
We are also looking into this. Unfortunately without the ability to write comments on slides in PBI we are back to square one where we download old fashion way to PPT and then do performance management reviews for higher stakeholders. This is really vital feature! Any updates are appreciated.
Its been almost a year since last update on the matter.
Can we please get an update on the status of this feature as it is very crucial to our use of PowerBI?
