    We have a number of PowerBI reports with several tabs that we need to be able to print to PDF from the browser. We'd like the functionality to be comparable to that in the service where we can click "export to pdf" and all pages are printed to a PDF, without our users having to print each page individually.

    The admin comment from 5/17/2018 indicated that this was planned - what is the status on it? How soon will this be available?

    We and Our customers are looking for 'Export to PDF' feature like SSRS in Power BI Report Server. Any update on in which release Microsoft will include this feature?
    Appreciate your help.

    We're looking for sharing features to be available to non-designers. That report consumers/viewers can use them when embedded, using any of the embed methods.

    For example, enabling RDL is most useful (for us) when this can be shared outside the power bi app and the power bi service.

    In the same light, export to PDF is most useful when its embedded, ie beyond Power BI app and beyond Power BI service.

    in the post on your blog you didn't mention anything about any restrictions for Live Connection to Analysis Services. why?! We use cubes!
    and why we can (can't in our case) subscribe our clients - people outside our company, who don't have power bi pro license.
    We were looking so long for this feature. And now it is totally useless for us

    Ability to schedule PDF export at any given time and send it via email or save on a specific location just like SSRS subscription.

    "We don't want to have to save the report to export the changes we need."

    In export to ppt is available. However, it exports the last saved version of the report. If you update filters or drill in to data changing the data displayed, and export (without saving), the filters and such aren't applied in the the export. I think it's important to add that with the export capability in SSRS, we should have the ability for the changes made to filters and the like on screen (without saving) to be applied when exporting the report. We don't want to have to save the report to export the changes we need. We have multiple users using the same report that need to export (with different filter value requirements) and as you can imagine having to save it first would be a disaster.

    We want to problematically (C#) execute Power BI reports on Report Server and then export static visualizations to PDF,

    Printing to PDF from Power BI Report Server web portal prints one PBI report tab at a time, while PBI desktop client has the feature to print all tabs in single PDF.

    Is there any way in PBIRS web portal to print all PBI report tabs to a single pdf file at one go?

    If this feature is not available. Please add it to Report server.

    Also suggest if there is any work around for this. Thanks

    Honestly this isn't a new feature there shouldn't be any compromise it just needs to get done. Fit to page, print selected pages, print preview etc. you gotta get it together MS you aren't new to the game. Your team needs to prioritize and organize the industries demands a little better rather than focusing on pushing your agenda onto people.

    Limited availability of this functionality (e.g. all report pages must be 4:3 or 16:9) would be acceptable if it speeds the dev/release of this critical feature.

    Can you also add the ability to subscribe to reports and have them sent as a PDF export (for all tabs)? Currently subscriptions only send an image of one tab at a time.
