In order to give users a consistent experience in SharePoint, we need to be able to publish Power View reports as separate documents if they were authored in Excel. As it stands, a PowerPivot model can be published and then Power View reports are created separately. Each report has multiple views that can be exported as a single PowerPoint presentation.

If a user were to author a PowerPivot model and Power View reports using the respective Excel 2013 add-ins, and then publish that xlsx document to SharePoint, consumers will have a different experience all together. This is inconsistent and confusing.

If the reports could be saved from Excel as separate RDLX files, they could then be published separately.

Even though the Power Pivot model in Excel can be restored as SSAS tabular database, but any Power Views reports from excel cannot be imported into .rdlx, this requires redoing the work that has already been done. If at minimum the .rdlx file can be created from any Power View reports in Excel that will be great.
