        Please, we need a reliable way to print from the service. I have so many users clamoring for this. They'd be happy with export to PowerPoint, but this doesn't hold the slicers for them, so it's rendered useless. Printing an entire report to a pdf would be great and so would exporting to PowerPoint that actually works!

        Yes this is a must, especially to ppt. The Service has the capability (preview) already. However in the service, when you export, the export doesn't retain the filters you set if it's different from the saved file. Export displays filters applied from the saved file not anything you change in the GUI. So that must be fixed in RS when deployed as well.

        Our Sales and Client Services teams need the ability to export and adjust visuals for accordingly for presentations to clients and prospect.

        yea, this is really needed, really soon. We can build for PDF printing using the SSRS report builder for PBIRS, but the custom filtering in PBI Desktop created reports is far superior. So sometimes have two reports, - the PBI Desktop version and the SSRS variant (for PDF)

        I can't understand any logic that in their latest update they have added this feature to the Desktop but it's not available in the Service - Crazy

        Can any new printing functionality take into consideration where there is a summary charts (Table, Matrix) that are displayed over more than one page (Scrolls down). Either a option to split data over more than one tab or to print more than is viewed, would be a fantastic update.

        Need this ASAP, it is an absolute joke that to export 20 tabs (currently in PowerPoint format) We have to up load 2 separate reports, a 15 page report and a 5 page report so we have a complete (printable) report to present to our client. Oh and that’s right then we need to upload the 20 page report separately so that the entire thing is available. These work arounds just wont do, please provide an update oas to the rollout date.

        Need this asap without the 15 page limit. Slide 1 using some default template would be nice.

        I feel like most commenting are not utilizing all of the tools in the shed. There are multiple ways to do this currently via report server. so why insist MS waste their time on this feature rather than something more useful?

        Good afternoon,
        Just to inform that already exist programs capable to do that. At least one was created by a portuguese company (devscope): Power BI Tiles. You can also try PowerBI Robot.

        Search about them and try ;)

        Thanks for adding this to PLANNED. Any idea when this will be available? approximate timeline? I need to update my client on this as they are in need of this functionality very much.
