Excel Power View Retirement
Silverlight, a component used in Power View, will no longer be supported beginning on October 12th. In response, we will be starting the process to retire Power View from Microsoft 365. As an alternative to Power View, we recommend using Power BI Desktop, which is where we will continue to invest our development resources.
- Timing: Beginning October 12, 2021 this change will roll out as an update.
- Action: Inform users of the retirement and direct them to utilize Power BI Desktop as an alternative.
How this will affect your organization:
Once users have taken the update they will no longer be able to create or open Power View reports from Excel.
