Hi Lee Kian -
Unfortunately, there isn't. Here are a few alternate ways you can get Tableau into PowerPoint:
- Embed a Tableau report sitting in Tableau Server inside a PPT deck using "LiveView". This would be a manual process: http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/embed-live-views-powerpoint
- Lean on any of the tools that are out there which convert images to PPT decks: Write a batch file that exports the report from Tableau (using tabcmd) as an image, then call the "converter tool" to turn that image into a PPT. (http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ01136_Batch-convert_high_resolution_images_for_PowerPoint_or_web_use.htm)
Both of these techniques will require additional effort on your part, but at least you'll be able to get what you want!
Thank you Russell
It's indeed great that we have a couple of options to export to PPT. I have a couple of followup questions:
For option 1, I used Liveview to import views from the tableau server. Since this remains a web object and you need online access and user licensing permissions to access the views, is there a way to convert these web objects to static images so that I could share this packet to my customers, who may not have internet access all the time?
For option 2, can you create a single patch that will directly export all images at once? As far as I know, we can only do it by exporting a single chart at one time. Am I missing something here?
Thank you in advance for the guidance.
Per your second point, I have an idea in the forum to use the page field to create multiple emf files with one click..
Sorry Alex, I don't understand.
Do you mean it's possible to create multiple emf files directly from Tableau with one click, can you please share the link with me?
