I have volumes of information to share with my teams that is best presented in tables and matrices. It would be a huge improvement if they were able to export the data from the visualizations and have the formatting in Excel match the formatting created within PowerBI.

This would be especially helpful for ongoing forecasting activities.

Thanks for your feedback on this issue - while we'd like to enable this, there is currently no timetable around doing so. There is the option as a workaround the create a paginated view as a drillthrough of the visual and have a formatted version you can export to Excel, but understand this isn't a solution everyone can take advantage of currently.

This feature would be huge for me. I have multiple matrix visualizations in PowerBI that are run much faster and more efficiently than in Excel. I don't know what the wait is on this.

W

It is a key feature which is supported in most of the Basic BI tools. It is a major disadvantage for such a powerful tool..

W

Need this. Why the review takes so long?

I cant reiterate any further how much of an impact will this functionality help. I sometimes have to jump into other BI tools just to get this done at a quicker speed. This will also help non-developers/administrators such as sales teams rely more on PowerBI once they have the ability to export visualizations as is into their reports especially when they do not have the ability to rebuild the visualizations based on raw data...

W

Please can this feature be implemented as I need to export data for my own reports.

W

I have no understanding why this clearly deeply needed change hasn't been made. It is such a fundamental weakness, it comes up repeatedly with actual users, please for the love of god implement it.

W

I can only speak for myself but not having this feature really degrades using Power BI in general for my purposes. Matter of fact, it's kind of shocking it's not offered.

W

Would be a very useful feature. Lots of users use the export to Excel function

W

It is needed
