How can we improve Power BI?

Microsoft Word POWER BI Add-on

Other than the Devscope Power BI addon which does not work the way I expected, Can Microsoft provide a POWER BI Add-on which allows us to insert or copy a particular visual into the word document? I'd like to copy paste a particular chart/graph from power BI web/desktop like we can copy graphs from Excel into Word. I tried to export the Power BI report into a powerpoint file but since we have over 15 pages in this PBI Report this was not allowed.

Surely Microsoft can provide this integration between their own products?

I have been using Snagit to copy-paste visuals into a 60 page report, and it's very time consuming. I would appreciate a quicker way to get these visuals into a report.

    Agree with others. I am stunned that this wasn't already a feature. We've spent quite a bit of time integrating and learning Power BI assuming that everything in the Microsoft ecosystem played nicely together. I can't believe others don't need this.

    I can't believe that this is not getting more votes. We have moved a lot of our analysis from Excel to Power BI but desperately need a better way to paste visuals into reports in PowerPoint and Excel.

    This would be a great feature for my organization as well. Our users draft a lot of policy papers, and being able to embed an interactive feature into Word would be a major bonus for us.

    A great need for our organisation as well, we have reports which need visuals so that executives can write a narrative for each measure in MS Word document.

    This is very much wanted it saves me a lot off time and integration between microsoft products should be in place not via subscription third party products which cost a fortune.

    Most of our users snip data and put it in a powerpoint or word document to create presentations and data stories. Having live, up-to-date would save them lot's of time in doing non-value add tasks (eg setting filters, snipping data visuals, etc) and allow them to focus on the value add of deriving insights.

    This seems like a no brainer - I don't want to pay for third party tools (I've no doubt DevScape do a good job) when I pay for Power BI already - and it seems like such an obvious win for MS that I can't believe it doesn't do it out of the box.

    Not all consumers are happy with using a dashboard - with this I could template a report easily.
