Enable Power View in Excel 2016

When I tried to create a Power View report using Excel 2016, I couldn't find where is the Power view option from Ribbon in Excel 2016
Did Microsoft remove it from normal ribbon view? ðŸ˜ĢI feel that this is an important option and it should be in normal ribbon view.
Though there are some articles out there, I want my readers to know the step by step guidelines to enable the Power View in Excel 2016 😀
1. Click Excel -> Blank work book -> File -> Customize Ribbon -> Choose from Commands drop down -> Select Commands not in the Ribbon -> look for "Insert a Power View Report" -> I am adding it in a group which I created called "Reports" as shown below:
2. Once you add this you should be able to see the Power View option in the Ribbon in the section whichever you added (here it is in Insert -> Reports) as shown below:
That's it, you should be able to add Power View reports from the ribbon as usual in a click.
