One-click to "copy/paste" a well-formatted chart object to Powerpoint
Challenge: We have many challenges using Powerview, as a "real report" since in many cases the report objects need to be includd in a presentation or otherwise annotated with analysis. Using snipping tool results in a rather sparse chart for a powerpoint. The current method most people use is to have a separate spreadsheet with charts that "look good in powerpoint" that can be resized, etc. to fit and have more granular series.
A one-click to export could include the series for the current visualization as JSON, along with a chart object with properties that can be edited directly in powerpoint as an excel chart object (or simply move the data + chart series to an Excel document). This would increase the usage of the dashboards & reports by users other than the author.
This is a great suggestion Jeff. We want to support even better Power Point integration by allowing you to embed Power BI visuals directly into Power Point presentations:
Would that solve your challenge, or are there extra requirements that this doesn’t meet?
Hi Will, this is an old thread, but I think this functionality would still be very useful to build out. I want to copy paste a graph from Power BI to Powerpoint like how I would from Excel to Powerpoint, where it's connected to the data still, so any changes in Power BI would change the graph. Unlike embedding a visual directly into Power Point, I want this to be a simple Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V type of action, so it's easy for me to directly transfer visuals. Plus I don't want to have all of controls the embedding option provides. I just want the graph. Thanks for the help!
