Adding a time and date stamp when a matrix visual is exported from the app section of PBI Service

I have a series of reports that are located in the 'App' section of the Power BI Service. I would like to configure the visuals in the reports to show a time and date stamp (of the time of the user export) on the excel document which is produced.

 

The visuals are matrices and tables - ideally would like the time and date stamp to be the top row of the exported excel document. But I would consider alternative formats if that is not possible.

 

I cannot see there is a native PBI functionality for this, but does anyone have any ideas of a workaround?

 

Many thanks.

You can also use Power Query to add a card in your report

let
Source = Table(),
#"Converted to Table" = #table(1, {{Source}}),
#"Renamed Columns" = Table.RenameColumns(#"Converted to Table",{{"Column1", "Date and Time now"}}),
#"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Renamed Columns",{{"Date and Time now", type datetime}})
in
#"Changed Type"
