More report customization options

When I create a custom pivot report, the entire report has a title, which is displays on notebooks. But when I export to image or PDF, the title is no longer there.

Under customize report, I would like the ability to:

  • add an optional title to the report itself, which is also used in the exports
  • add labels for the axes, again which would appear in the exports
  • choose whether or not to use the legend. Currently, if I use the "color by" option, a legend is added to the exports but doesn't show on the screen. It should be consistent in both places, and I want the choice of whether to include it or not. For this particular report I'm working on, the legend is confusing because the report is self-explanatory without it.

I found an old idea which said the first two bullet points above already exist, but they don't seem to exist now. Maybe it has since vanished?

    Definitely odd having the legend be there all the time - it is basically repeating everything in the actual slide so it seems silly to have to have it show all the time.

    Exported reports must have titles in order to be useful. To me, this missing functionality is a bug and not a feature request.

    We have the same requirement. The legend showing when I have selected the 'colour by' option is pointless. It makes the page look silly as there is no value to it when it is replacting the text that already appears. I understand the value if you are identifying other items by colour and they need a legend to explain them but in nearly all of the use cases I have I do not need/eant a legend. There needs to be a tick box option to show or hide. Your solution of placing a white rectangle over the legend is not a user friendly option.
