PowerBI reports direct and live in PowerPoint
It’s now possible to insert a PowerBI report directly into a PowerPoint slide, finally resolving a long-standing customer demand and glaring omission.
The PowerBI report has filters and pivots to adjust the display directly. The data is live in both Edit and Slide Show modes.
Microsoft calls this Interactive Data “Storytelling” which seems a bit OTT.
From the Insert | Power BI button, copy a link for the PowerBI report into the field.
If you prefer a static view, click on the top right corner and choose “Show as Saved Image”. Choose again to ‘unfreeze’ the view.
Anyone sharing the presentation gets access to the report, share a link from Power BI via Share | PowerPoint.
For an interactive presentation, all attendees must have a PowerBI licence
