Automate extraction of charts

Hi All,

Just wanted to see if this is possible to achieve, currently on a montly basis I manually extract various charts from my Power BI dashboard into PowerPoint and then add narrative, essentially creating a intellegence report with charts and narrative. The extraction of multiple charts on a single chart by chart basis from Power BI tends be a tedious process and therefore just reaching out to see if there is a way to automate this process and extract multiple charts in one instance 

 

Regards

Hi @Nagin,

There's currently no way to programmatically export visuals from a report, but have you considered using the functionality to add a live report page to PowerPoint?

Once you have added your report, it's possible to freeze the output as a static image if you need it to remain fixed for any annotations or additional contextual info in PowerPoint.

Similarly you can turn it back to the live view and get the latest information as and when you need for subsequent reports (and then just freeze it again when ready).

Regards,

Daniel
