Currently the data-export option is hidden in an invisible ellipsis. One needs to know where that invisible ellipsis is, then they need to hover over it, then they can click it, and finally they can see that this is where they can choose the "Export" option. In my experience, exporting data is a pretty common task, so I don't understand why you go to such great lengths to make it difficult to find.

Getting requests for this functionality on a weekly basis. Would be great to have a button tied to a table/visual and if you click it, it exports the data to Excel

J

Yes please can we make a button to 'export data'. This would save so much confusion and time training.

My end users export data we make for them in Power BI daily. It would be nice if I could just add a Blank Button and assign an export data action to it. Please consider this. The hidden ellipses in the visual header is not easy to find for new and even seasoned users. Depending on how tight the report author stacks visuals a visual header from another visual could be prompted and frustrate the user even more.

I just want to be able to make a big shiny button that says "Export "----" data"

This is a HUGE want for my team! Please consider this in a coming update! At least the ability to create a button to do this...

There are lots of similar/related ones on this forum, which suggests more people would like this :

Is there any news? Could we merge all these requests so it gets more traction?

Yes, I am also concerned about this, exporting data from the report for the end users is not so user friendly. I think Power BI should have that features of adding button to export the data.

J

If nothing else, at least add an option in the button Action list to export. Some of my end users are vendors and I can't reach out to every single one to explain how to export using the "..."

J

This is really basic. Please bring this in.

Echoing comments below, it's unreal that there still isn't some kind of option available on this yet. A button, or even simply an option to make the ellipsis permanently visible for a visual - anything to make it more straightforward for end users to find. I know we live in a world that prefers things to be sleek and pretty, but please, please, please don't ignore this because of style over substance.

I have a lot of demand for this feature from users - many are unable to find export button and even those that can often become confused by hover state logic (see ellipsis, scroll outside of visual to click, become frustrated that it disappeared). Making export data for target visual a button action could be one solution.
