Share PowerView reports with non Excel 2013 users


  • Hi,

    Let's say I create a report using various tools (especially Power View) of Power BI in Excel 2013.  I now want to share these reports with users who do not have Office 2013 installed - Infact some of those users may be Excel 2003 users.  The end users will not want to change anything in the Power BI reports - they will just be viewing audience.

    What options do I have to share just static visualizations (created using Power View) with such an audience?  I tried the following but nothing worked:

    1. Saved the file in Compatibility mode but the visualizations are not visible
    2. Copy and paste individual visualizations to PPT but copy and paste seems to be disabled
    3. Converting to PDF but one cannot convert multiple Power View worksheets into a PDF in one command - one has to do it individually for each worksheet.

    Thank you for any guidance that you may offer.
