Best way to move graphs from one Power BI Report to another

Hello,

 

I am trying to grab a couple specific graphs from an extensively long Power BI report and reorganize only the key visuals onto a seperate sheet that I can easily export to PowerPoint but am having troubles. So far i've tried pinning things to another dashboard but when I do so I can't easily see the filters being applied to the visuals or how I would change anything after the fact. My overall goal is to use Power BI reports in PowerPoint, but when I have multiple things on one slide things go really slow and the filters pane and bottom pane take up too much room on the slides.

@Greg Hi Greg, thanks for the response. Would you be able to chat about this in a Teams Meeting? I don't have much experience creating reports. If not that is okay. my email is jordan.edwards@globalfoundries.com

@Greg_Deckler  Hey Greg, thanks for the quick reply and video walkthrough - I guess im not the only one that Power BI is super slow for... Anyways, a couple notes on why I am still having issues:

1) Although I do have edit access to my organizations published reports, I am finding it hard to load those up in Desktop - If I download the file it could overwrite other modifications made by others correct?

2) Additionally, I have figured out how to just cut and paste between Different pages in the same report on Service, but I notice when doing so, I am having a hard time keeping the data the same - I have checked my page and visual slicers/filters but don't see where anything would be different --- It does sometimes pop up something saying I can "keep the data synced" but still isn't matching that of the originals

@jedward2 If you download the file, make changes and then reupload then yes there is a possibility of overwriting someone else's changes. Best to coordinate with the owner of the report.

 

In terms of the second issue. The filters should be coming from slicers and the Filters pane. Need to check page level and report level filters. Now, there may be hidden slicer visuals on the page so that is another thing to check. The slicer visual has a special feature that allows selections made on one page sync to the same slicer on other pages, that's the "keep the data synced" message that you are getting.

@jedward2 Well, you could create a new Power BI report and connect Live/DQ to the existing data model. Then you can just copy and paste visuals from one report to another in Desktop.
