Reports with multiple views in Power View in SharePoint

In Power View in SharePoint, you can create a single report with multiple views. All the views in one report are based on the same Data Model. You can copy and paste from one view to another, and duplicate whole views. If you save preview images of the views, an image of each view is displayed in the Power Pivot Gallery in SharePoint Server 2013.

Notes:  There are two versions of Power View: Power View in Excel 2013 and Power View in SharePoint 2013. This topic is only about Power View in SharePoint 2013.

You can create Excel workbooks with multiple Power View sheets in an Excel workbook. Read about everything else you can do in Power View.

Filters on views

Each view can have its own filters, but the state of the Filters Area is constant: if the Filters Area is expanded on one view, it’s expanded in all views. As you move from view to view in any mode, the state of the filter on each page persists: for example, if you have a filter for the Product Category field filtering one view for cell phones, when you leave the view and return to it, the filter is still filtering for cell phones. When you duplicate a view, the filters are duplicated, too, along with the state of each filter. Saving the report saves the state of each filter.

Saving view preview images

View preview images are the images that Power View displays in the View pane in design mode. When you save a Power View report, by default these images are saved with the report. They are then displayed in the Power Pivot Gallery in SharePoint Server 2013, just as Microsoft Excel worksheets are displayed. However, you have the option not to save them.

Caution:  Consider not saving preview images if they display information that you consider potentially sensitive

See Choose Whether to Save an Image of Each View with the Report.
