If you don't have the Powerpoint Add In, can you still see the visual

Our organisation has security settings stopping the use of the PowerPoint Add-in and the export live data to PowerPoint functions. I am going through the process of getting this changed but, if somebody else does have a PowerBi pro licence but not the add-in - will they still be able to see the visuals i put in the presentation?

Hey @Alboy ,

 

Thanks for the clarification.  So, I found this "When you share the presentation with others, to be able to view the data in the presentation they'll need an active Power BI account and a Power BI Free license, as well as access to the data"  Which sounds like it would work.  BUT, my gut tells me they have to have the add-in.  I guess the only way to know for sure is to do a test as I don't find any definitive documentation.

Thanks for that Collinq. I get that but if they don't have the PowerPoint add-in but do have a Power BI licence, I'm concerned they won't be able to see anything

Hey @Alboy ,

 

I think there are a few assumptions about how you are presenting.  The rule of thumb is that to see a visual, you have to have a license.  So, if you are using ppt and connecting directly to PBI then when you present they will see the visual but if you send them the file with the connection to PBI they will have to have a license and access to that report.  If you are putting in screenshots that are static then they won't have to have any access.
