With the launch of the new PowerBI (www.powerbi.com), there is no excuse to not provide that cool responsive dashboard across all devices. But how does that affect the typically heavy use of PowerPoint presentation for management meetings? This is where the Micosoft Add-Ins (previously apps) come in handy. In less than 1 minute you can start to see your PowerBI Charts come to live in your PowerPoint pages with automatic refresh enabled.
The following mini guide will show you just how easy it is to get started.
1-Get hold of the PowerBI add-in (free) called PowerBI Tiles
2-Allow the add-in to view your BI content
3-Create a new PowerPoint presentation and insert the PowerBI Tiles add-in
4-Choose which dashboard that holds the chart you want
5-Scroll through the charts from the dashboard using the arrows
6-Size the chart and add more if needed to the page. Notice the charts are responsive when resized
7-After you have saved your presentation, and reopen it before a meeting, you will notice an automatic refresh of your inserted charts on all slides. You might get prompted for credentials depending on your security setup with O365/PowerBI
