  1. Include non-text type columns in data export from Power BI Service

    Case:
    You have published a report to the Power BI service that has a Card visualization with the count of a certain column in your dataset

    You want to export the underlying data to xlsx (not the summarization data) from the Power BI Service/reports/visualization level, in order to get the "raw" data that is contained in the table that the Card visualization is using

    Currently, it seems that the underlying data export option does not include non-text type columns (ie. it doesn't export numeric or date type columns)

    This was validated in this post: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/

  4. matrix data export to excel

    Matrix data is exported to excel in tabular format. It is a lot of rework to again pivot it in excel. We want a visual matrix to be exported to excel as a matrix/cross tab.
    same is for charts. we dont want just the underlying data. When exporting to excel from Powerbi Service, we want it to be exported as-is with all the visuals.
    So many posts on this topic and no answers so far.

  5. Export data including forecast data

    Now that there is a forecast feature, it would be nice to be to export data including the forecast data - maybe with another column to indicate whether the data exported is an actual figure or forecast figure.

  6. Export Underlying Data Function BROKEN

    Up until the last couple of releases, if a user selected "export underlying data" on the visuals using the online Power BI Service, all unhidden fields in the data source associated with the selected visual would be exported. Now, when this is selected, the only thing that exports is the summary view.

    Can this PLEASE be fixed asap? It's causing a lot of frustration and additional work in our organization. Especially where this used to work just fine.

  10. Exporting Data from Power BI Desktop to TSV

    I want Power BI (Service and Desktop) to add export function to TSV file.

    Background
    ==========
    Power BI's visual is very good, so I would like to make use of Power BI.
    I want to export and use visual data, but in the CSV file the display collapses when importing to another system.
    Therefore, it is necessary to export to TSV to utilize the exported data.

  11. Allow export of summarized data

    Power BI leads the user to believe it is possible to export summarized data at the level of the current view. In fact, the result of [Matrix grid] > Ellipsis > Export data is that data is exported at the lowest level of the drill-down path.

    In one case, I am viewing 4 rows of data in my matrix grid (drilled up to the top level of the data hierarchy). When I export to xlsx, i get over 15,000 rows of data (summarized at the lowest level of my data hierarchy).

    Users should be able to export data at…

  12. Export finest grain data to Excel for a visual based on an SSAS Data Source

    Would like to grab lowest-level data for a visual, to export to Excel, from a visual based on an Analysis Services data source. This would be a competitive advantage over Tableau, as Tableau does *not* support this for Analysis Services data sources.

  13. Data export from Data view

    I would like to be able to export data to a .csv from the Data view in PBI Desktop. This could be very helpful in verification of data in visualizations.

  16. Disable export of underlying data

    We are using SSAS Tabular as our datasource and we have issues when users try to 'Export underlying data' from the Power BI Service. The query generated to SSAS when doing this seems to include every measure from the table which in some cases is 30+ measures and sometimes from multiple tables. The query never completes and consumes nearly all resources on the SSAS server.

    We need to disable this option while still allowing export of summarized data.

  17. Export data for SSAS from multiple tables

    I have a PBI Service report and I want users to be able to export the raw data to verify if the visuals are correct.
    The report has visuals that use data from multiple tables. E.g. one visual has two columns from Table1, and one column from Table2.
    The data source is SSAS 2016 using DirectQuery to access the cube.

    When I try the "Export Data" -> "Underlying data" option, I am given an Excel file with all the 30+ columns in Table2. I am shown none of the columns from Table1.
    When I export from a…

  18. Disable Export data function in Power BI Embeded

    Currently Export data can be disabled from the service but not from Power BI Embeded. We want to keep our data from being able to exported by others and see Power BI Embeded as our prefered roll out solution but the lack of ability to turn off the export feature means that we are not currently able to use Embeded for this purpose. Ideally we need a way to control export data at a visual level but at minimum control at a dashboard / report level. This is a high priority feature for us to be able to complet…

    Thank you for your feedback.
    We are planning to add this capability as part of other Admin controls changes through API.
    For the first phase, we will support the control in the embedded object level (i.e. report/ Dashboard/ Tile)

  19. Custom data export

    We would like a way to export data that has been filtered according to slicers on the page but may not be structured correctly in any of the visuals that the user is viewing. For example, their may be a map that bests allows a user to filter to what they want data on, but the structure of the data in the map is necessarily different than the data which the user would like to export. Currently we are using the table visual and simply shrinking it to the point that you can't see any of the data other…

  20. Disable exporting at data source level

    What we want to be able to do is have the ability to disable exporting at the data source level as opposed to tenant-wide. Currently, there is a tenant level option to disable export capabilities, but we need a more granular solution so the data that needs to be exported can be and the data that doesn't need to be exported won't.
