QT#68 – An Easy Way to Improve the Look & Feel of Power BI Reports Embedded Into PowerPoint

In this video, I'll explain a simple idea for improving the look and feel of Power BI reports that are embedded into PowerPoint presentations.

The key to this approach is creating duplicate hidden Power BI report tabs. On these tabs the background of the Power BI report is set up to mimic the PowerPoint template you are using. This leads to seamless integration into PowerPoint and I think a better overall user experience.

I'll also cover some ideas for accessing these hidden pages. We still need to be able to navigate to these pages. This is to capture the Power BI service URL as this is required as an input into the PowerPoint Power BI add-in. However, we don't want consumers of the report to find these pages if they access the report through the Power BI service.

It’s simple to set-up and makes for a more professional embedded report.
