    This should not required a vote, if visuals are supported to be added in a dashboard, it should also be mailed in subscription.

    I've created R visuals using ggplot primarily because of limited range of capabilities in Power BI's scatter plot. And furthermore, we've only attempted to leverage the "subscribe" feature as a workaround to the lack of printing capabilities.

    If Power BI supported passing parameters in the URL to the report, I would be less concerned with supporting custom visualization in the subscription feature.

    The real value and need is the Power BI user needs to clearly see the full report (filtered to their liking). It could be an attachment in their email, or a URL link to a printed version of the report. It should not be a link to the existing Power BI report page because they want to see only the data, not the wireframe around the report, nor all the other filters, etc.

    This is really needed. the minimum would be for it to be supported with uncertified visuals published to our organisation repository.
    not being able to use email subscription feature for internal custom visuals without making them public via MS certification is not an option

    I spent hours building really useful reports to be auto emailed and now they can't because enlighten data story viz not export supported. Fix it.

    Agree With "jfontenot". When you are giving access to a custom visuals you should support it. Right now not able to view custom visual charts when shared on web.

    This is a must. Custom visuals should always be supported. This should not require a feedback vote.
