    Thanks for your votes and comments! We’re building out our email subscriptions feature in the Power BI cloud service. For example, today, you can subscribe only yourself to a report, but we’re working on enabling you to subscribe other people as well. There are also some technical barriers to integrating the current implementation into an on-premises server. Once it’s a little further along, it’s something we’d love to bring to Power BI Report Server. For now, consider it on our backlog.

        The more we use PowerBI, the more we find glaring holes in it as a product. We'll have to stick with Tableau until this feature is available in PowerBI.

        Hi, any updates on this? Holds our implementation process due lack of email subscriptions on live connections and also printing from reports...

        Come on, Microsoft definitely can do it. Bring it to Power BI Reporting Server. We do need it as it a on premise server.

        Email subscriptions is a crucial reporting requirement, please introduce this as this is literally holding up migration of a lot of SSRS reports to Power BI.

        Riccardo's comment was posted in March. It is now December. When can we expect this feature to be added? It is not in the August 2018 version.

        I need too. What i doint is import webpage using PowerShell and then export to PDF and sent to email... why not put this direct in Reporting Server?

        Agreed with so many others that this is a vital feature, other wise we are stuck with SSRS clunky reports which are very static and extremely difficult to theme and template.

        Subscriptions are a huge part of SSRS. Why was it not a basic feature of Power BI? Makes me wonder if Microsoft really has a clue about its customers needs.

        The admin backlog explanation on this issue is ridiculous. Previous versions of report server have report subscriptions for paginated reports. So if end users want to upgrade to the power bi report server to replace old report server versions because the PB server allows users to consume PBIX on premise why wouldn't this key feature be more important?

        Riccardo Muti's last post here on this key feature was 6 months ago! @Riccardo-Muti, can we get an update?

      • Kevin Palmer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Is there any way to move this from Backlog to actively being worked on? It would be great for this to be available in the January release!

        Considering it has already been implemented in the Cloud based platform, surely it can't be too hard to complete this for those of us who are limited to the Report Server version.
