Note: In SharePoint 2010, PowerPivot for SharePoint requires classic-mode Windows authentication, yet this has changed in SharePoint 2013. In SharePoint 2013, all Microsoft BI technologies support claims-based authentication, but PowerPivot supports Windows claims-mode authentication only, despite the fact that SharePoint in claims mode also supports forms-based and SAML authentication methods.

The PowerPivot for SharePoint 2013 add-in is only required for accessing workbooks as a data source from outside the farm, configuring scheduled data refresh for a workbook, using the PowerPivot Gallery, providing BISM link file support, and adding the PowerPivot Management Dashboard to SharePoint Central Administration.


The installation process may take 15-20 minutes, and you will not see any feedback indicators other than a flowing progress bar to indicate that work is being done.
