You have a big presentation coming up, and fear you’ll spend more time taking screenshots of Power BI reports than preparing for it. Sounds familiar, right? PowerBI Tiles Pro was developed because we had the same problem. PowerBI Tiles Pro allows you to select data reports directly from PowerPoint, completely removing the need to take screen snapshots and paste low-quality images,and drastically reducing the time spent preparing presentations.
Access your Power BI workspaces directly from PowerPoint, select the reports, dashboards, or visuals of your choice, and add them to your presentation as either high-quality screenshots or real-time data. The entire process is seamless, fast, and assigns a new slide to each report, dashboard, or visual you selected. You can do this with Word documents and Outlook emails as well.
Need to update an entire presentation to the latest numbers? No problem. With a single click on the Refresh button, PowerBI Tiles Pro updates all screenshots you select to the most recent data from Power BI. All formatting, themes, and styles remain unchanged.
Not only can you add any report, dashboard, or visual to your presentation, you can also filter its data beforehand. PowerBI Tiles Pro gives you access to the filter pane of every report, allowing you to filter data as you see fit before adding it to your presentation. With PowerBI Tiles Pro Online, the pane is always accessible so you can apply filter mid-presentation.

Power BI Tiles Pro is a “pack” composed by two versions of the product: Power BI Tiles is a tool designed to embbed Power BI visuals in Office documents. It is composed of two versions of the product:
PowerBI Tiles Desktop free version has a fully-featured trial which enables you to test the complete scope of the solution. The only difference between the trial and the paid version is the presence of a watermark on every embedded report and dashboard. To access it, just go to our website and download the current version. PowerBI Tiles Online is limited to visuals of your "My Workspace" and to 5 only visuals (which will also appear with the same watermark).
Once acquired the license is annual, subject to the terms of our license agreement, with free access to all updates and new features.
To install PowerBI Tiles Desktop you need:
PowerBI Tiles enables you to apply report and page level filters from the filter pane in your reports and dashboards. You can also apply bookmarks, slicers and drill-downs.
PowerBI licenses can be activated/deactivated according to your needs of transfer as you can see in the image below. The one-year license counts from the date of the first activation.
PowerBI Tiles works with Power BI Online and Report Server as you can see in the image below. The limitations are subjacent to the fact that you will not be able to use the filter settings because reports are rendered through a direct URL (limitations of Microsoft's API). For example, you won't be able to select/change bookmarks or slicers. Also, we don't guarantee that you will be able to customize filters when using this kind of report source.
With the PowerBI Tiles Online version, you can access your visuals “live” as if you were on Power BI Online and by sharing the document, only people with access to the workspace and a PowerBI Tiles license will be able to see and navigate through them. Sharing with PowerBI Tiles Desktop enables you to share visuals with anyone because they'll be embedded as still images but if they need to edit the person will need to have access to the visuals and a PowerBI Tiles license installed.
Only PowerBI Tiles Pro Online is only compatible with PowerPoint on Office 365 for Mac OS. This version allows you to embed real-time data from Power BI directly on Office documents. PowerBI Tiles Desktop, also included in the license, isn’t currently available for Mac OS.
At DevScope's blog you can find a PowerBI Tiles 101-tutorial which enables you to quickly set up our report automation system.
Please make sure that:
The rendering time is the ammount of time that it takes Microsoft's API to return correctly the selected visuals. You can adjust the "Delay render" to a fixed value or choose to use the "Capture Mode" to mannualy insert your visuals.

The only information collected on the PowerBI Tiles web application is the user's email when a new account is created. That email is used to identify the user and send him or her notifications regarding PowerBI Tiles such as updates or policy changes. That email may also be used to market DevScope products or services. We never share or sell our users' email contact or other information to third-party companies. Users may opt-out of these marketing emails at any time by accessing their account.

Our plugins only read data from the MS APIs. Ex. PowerBI Tiles, PowerBI Tiles Pro Desktop.
We only store the OAUTH AccessToken locally on the user machine, to be used as a cookie (as per browser functionality), according to MS common Standards. In specific add-ons like PowerBI Tiles Pro Desktop we store the OAUTH AccessToken in an encrypted file on your Profile AppData folder and also store a XML catalog with metadata about PowerBI Dashboards (name/title/URL in a hierarchy mode). When creating a PowerPoint Presentations with PBI Visuals on it, we also store on each shape, the Url/Link of the respective PowerBI Tile/Report so that we can identify which item to refresh later. If you share the PowerPoint presentation no Auth/Login data is shared. The PowerPoint presentation shapes only have the link to the PowerBI URL embedded in the shapes. Only an authorized MS PowerBI user will be able to refresh it.
All communications are encrypted by SSL channels using HTTPS using PowerBI SDK.
The only data that is routed to non-Microsoft infrastructure is instrumentation on usage and our licensing.
