Option 1With the launch of Tableau Desktop and Server 2019.1, it became possible to save and export views to Microsoft PowerPoint. Upgrading to this version will allow you to save, export and download views, dashboards and stories to PowerPoint.
To export a workbook to PowerPoint in Tableau Desktop, select File > Export as PowerPoint. This creates a PowerPoint file of all workbook sheets and saves the file to your computer.
Note: You can use File > Page Setup to control if and how titles, views, legends, and captions appear, You can also select Size > PowerPoint (1600x900) as you save/export to fit specific PowerPoint size formats.
Option 2If you cannot upgrade, follow this workaround.
- Export the view as an image:
- In Tableau Desktop, select Worksheet > Copy > Image or Worksheet > Export Image.
- In Tableau Server, select Export > Image.
Paste the image into a PowerPoint slide. This view will not be interactive in PowerPoint.
Option 3Embed a live Tableau Server view in PowerPoint.
Note: The ability to see the view is dependent on user login to their Online site and what settings are selected for the 'Default authentication type for embedded views'. Tableau Online does not allow guest user access like Tableau Server.
CauseThe ability to publish a view directly to PowerPoint first became available with Tableau 2019.1.
