Copy/paste the data behind the visual in Power BI to other applications
I can copy the visual either as image or data table and paste it in other applications.
We recently released the ability to export data from tiles and visuals to a CSV file. This may work for y’all as a workaround until we add the ability to directly copy and paste the visual or data. You can read more about it here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/powerbi/archive/2016/01/06/power-bi-service-update-0106.aspx#exportTile. Be sure to let us know what you think about the feature!
Wow,.. Planned and under development for 5 years?
Ok lets break this down.
1. Why do we need this feature?
A: Many END users only need copy of visualisation / data table for Excel spreadsheet or power point. They need it asap & ready for small changes.
2. Why the workaround isn´t working ?
A: Workaround loses the table style & formating during the export.
Step 1. save *.csv. step 2. Do "text to columns". Step 3. format the table. This might be really fast and easy for power users but it´s huge hurdle for some END-users.

This was marked as PLANNED back in January 2016. Any update???
please add a copy values feature
when will be the copy feature will be added in Power BI service/desktop.
Is copy feature added yet?
Please please add the "copy to buffer" functionality. It's so annoying to go through CSV all the time.

Please add this feature
It would be good to know a scheduled release day M.
How much planning is needed to add copy & paste? Please provide an update other than this is 'planned'- a scheduled release date would be a welcome update.
It´s really planned?
Please update us!
It is outrageous that this basic functionality is not there - please sort it out Microsoft!
It is essential feature to must have
almost we require the data in the same way as designed in matrix and other visuals
copy and paste is require to met this purpose
by when can we expect

We need this copy to clipboard functionality very badly. There are many disgruntled END users who will either not switch to Power BI or not use it.
Microsoft needs to consider the 'silent' voice of the final END users who do not go to blogs to cast their votes.
However, many of these 'silent' END users control the purse and have veto rights.
There are a few END user issues that never seems to get the votes but they will hurt Power BI in the long run. Another example is exporting matrix to excel in matrix format and not just in columnar format as is available currently.
Thanking in advance.....Adi
could we please have an update? Our team uses Power BI to track down data issues, and then based off of the identifier in our table, we need to search that text in another system to edit our data.
How could copy not be enabled in power BI? This is a critical problem and I am shocked by the lack of support.

HI when will this be available? I need to be able to present the charts and am prevented from doing so.

Agreed that this is CRITICAL and needs to be able to be row specific. Even if this was only turned on for a couple of visualizations (or types of visualizations) it would be helpful. Doesn't necessarily need to be universal to start.

I'm switching to Tableau soon if you don't fix this Microsoft!
