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/

        Very interested in this capability to get added as it would save me hours of work in distributing information

        Thanks Nikhil for start working on this. Any idea when this will be available. And also in what format the reports will be attached with the email subscription. Users doesn't like a picture attachment, they all are familiar and confortable using PDF and EXCEL reports. Can you update if you are planning to add these options.

        Any chance that Premium capacity users will be able to subscribe in the future? 99.9% of our employees on "consumers" only and have no need for a Pro license, but would like to be updated when a report has been updated.

        Great that you are working on it. The report should be delivered in PDF format or at least in high resolution image format. Right now the quality of image sent in subscription is very poor.

        Please make sure that the subscriptions include the underlying data as an option... internal audit always wants us to keep a copy for point in time dashboards at month end.

        Definitely need this...bonus points if you can allow the administrator of the report to set up custom filters for different user groups!

        This feature is necessary as C-Level want to havean email with a quick snapshot of the current situation. They do not want the hassle to login and subsribe to certain dashborad. Hence when will this be available???

        Could definitely be a useful feature if the owner of the report could subscribe others to email notifications, less hassle for the end users.

        This lack of feature is really important. It is very important that people to be subscribed by their departments to reports the *should* receive daily or weekly

        Please update the status of this? 12 Months, almost 1000 votes and not even under review?

      • st3vemartin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Any update - this feature request has one of the highest number of votes without a status tag associated with it - "under review", "planned"... "started"

      • Alice commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        A colleague was able to subscribe to a report, but what she got was a screenshot that is a poor substitute for a PDF and borders on useless. Is the screenshot all that's expected when this is fixed?

      • Mani Agarwalla commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        A few things I need to mention here as requirements in order of lowering priority :-

        1. Subscribing Others and Group Aliases to receive the data.
        2. Providing a particular time when the report should go away and not after each and every data refresh.
        3. An email template which can pull in tiles as we do when we pull them for dashboard.
        4. Choosing the Subject and headers/footers for the email.
        5. Allowing to send as attachment/ in the body.
