How to Convert Power BI to PDF

The average business today generates an immense amount of information about its operations. From customer engagements and sales data to the impacts of strategy shifts on productivity, this information is of tremendous value — if you can analyze it. While that was traditionally a major logistical challenge that meant expensive deep dives on data, modern software changes the game.

With Microsoft’s Power BI tools, creating and analyzing digital data warehouses is much easier. The insights you generate within this software can prove very valuable indeed — and that means you’ll need an easy way to share the reports, charts, and graphs that Power BI lets you create. The PDF is the ideal format for such purposes because of its reliable display quality and ubiquity in the business world — so how do you transform your work from one format to another?

With a few simple steps, you can produce a file that you can edit and manipulate with Kofax Power PDF to create your next report in no time.

Using Power BI to Create a PDF From Your Data

Good news: if you have Power BI installed, you can convert to PDF without the need to take any additional steps. Microsoft made sure to include this feature directly within the program. The method differs slightly based on whether you use the desktop Power BI service or the cloud version of Power BI. For desktop users, follow these three steps:

  1. Open the file you wish to export in Power BI.
  2. Click File, then select Export.
  3. Click Export to PDF. Power BI begins working and outputs your file.

This export solution works quickly and easily like a “print to PDF” function. For cloud users, the process is similar. Simply open your file, locate the “Export” button on the top menu bar, and choose PDF.
