power point refresh



I am trying to set up a power bi report that can be shown as a part of a slideshow in Power Point on a big information screen at my workplace. I know that you can export the report to Power Point, but after you've exported it - you can't seem to get the latest refresh of the report without exporting it again? Is there any way to show a report as a part of a slideshow that gets the latest refresh from Power BI Service?




Hi @eh,


In your scenario, you can try using the Power BI Tiles Add-In that allow you to embed PowerBI visualizations inside PowerPoint presentation. And the PowerBI visualizations are refreshable inside your PowerPoint presentation. To refresh a tile right-click inside the visualization and select the “Reload” option:



For more details about integrating Power BI Tiles into Office documents, you can refer to this article. Smiley Happy



Thank you @v-ljerr-msft, I forgot about this feature, but this is still manual - there is no way for power point to get the latest version without someone manually reloading it, right?

Hi @eh,


Yes, that's right.


In addition, I would suggest you post your request in this thread which is opened to capture feedback of "Export to PowerPoint" (Preview feature) to improve Power BI on this feature. Smiley Happy
