How can we improve Power BI?

Subscribe *others* to emails of reports

Extend the email subscription feature, currently in public preview, to enable subscribing *others* to email snapshots of reports.

More information about the existing email subscriptions feature can be found here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/introducing-email-subscriptions-in-power-bi-stay-informed-when-it-matters/preview/

        Would be great to have this for external clients, but also internal users. Ideally enabling subscription at the group level.

        Yes, it would great to have a list of recipients in this option, hence we could send the reports to clients, or users that don't have power bi account yet.

        Thank you.

        In order to generate savings reports for customers, having a way to automate weekly, monthly, and yearly emails would be extremely beneficial. Just a snap shot or interactive link

        Hi, the email only sent for owner but not for share member... can you fixed it?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Better to concentrate on getting the standard email subscription working first, no?

        It would be very nice.

        Another thing would be cool is if a person does not have PowerBI account (and doesn't want to have one), why not allow to send him the "published report" aka "publish to web" URL?

        Just like in this screenshot I made: https://snag.gy/DYgVMc.jpg

        Great idea! Hope it will be implemented soon. It will really help to convince more people to use Power BI.

        This is important. I cannot tell all managers in the company to go and subscribe to the email subscription themselves. At least the admin or report owner should have the access to subscribe for others.

        This will be a great feature. Will increase visibility to our management team and hopefully increase utilization of the reports.

        Looking forward to this one, but I would say that allowing content pack reports to be subscribed to should come next please.
