oday, Microsoft published the following press release on their blog:

Ever since we launched Power BI for Office 365 this past February, we have been sharing Power View interactive reports in this blog. We’ve often been asked how to do this, and today we are happy to announce that this feature plus the option of embedding Pivot Tables publicly for workbooks 10MB or smaller is now available. To find out more read the official announcement on the Excel Blog for requirements and licensing.

To start embedding, first upload your workbook to SharePoint Online, then use the share option to generate a URL. Create an iframe based on the new URL with the parameters action=embedview and wdbipreview=true. You can also customize how your visualizations are displayed to better fit your embedded workbook to your website or blog. See the getting started instructions to learn more.

One of several examples on how this feature can be used is this interactive visualization that Marc Reguera built after the 2014 World Cup to show average goals per world cup, attendance and team performance among other KPIs.

Here at iqbs Solutions we’ve developed a working demo of this new Power View feature, as you can see below.

Please be patient when the report is loading. Because the entire Excel/PowerPivot datamodel is buffered, the loading can take some time. In our test environment loading times approach 30 seconds, but can be longer in certain cases.

Remember to give us a call at +31(0)318 – 495 374 or e-mail us when you’re interested in Power BI, PowerPivot, Power View or other Microsoft related business intelligence products and services.
