Export Report Server Power BI report to PDF
Please add the capability to export Report Server PowerBI reports to formats like pdf, word, powerpoint. Some of this functionality exists in the service but please add it to Report Server.
We’d hoped we’d have a good way to bring this functionality to the server – however, after a lengthy evaluation of all the options and required investments, we’re not planning to bring this feature to the server at this time. As a workaround, we suggest using the Export to PDF capabilities in Power BI Desktop for Report Server.

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 ;)

This is fantastic news !
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.
This is a must in our environment
Export to Excel and PDF is needed for Power BI report server reports.
Scheduled export to PDF with attachment as email would be ideal.
Power BI is used to serve up Interactive reports that can be consumed on Report server, Power BI.com and Power BI Mobile.
With that being said if you are using the ON Prem report server you have the option to Print and with print you have the option to print to PDF as you can with any other file.
Obviously your report would need to be formatted for the size of paper you want to print on.
I originally voted on this when it did not exist on the report server, I will be removing my vote since there is a sensible option now which fulfills this request.
Thanks Power BI Team for the multitude of updates you have done in the last 6 months.
We have got the power BI license assuming that export to PDF option would be available in the licensed version, but it looks its not there. Users using this report are unable to receive their reports in PDF format. Build this feature ASAP.

For anyone who needs to do this, there is a workaround by setting up a Chromium instance using Puppeteer to take screengrabs and pump those to PDF
We have just pitched Power Bi for a project that had a requirement to be able to export hi-res visuals as images so that they could be used in paper reports/presentations. We could be turned down (for a £40k project) because this feature isn't currently supported. The ability to export a whole report to PowerPoint is great (or will be when multi-select slicers are supported) and a PDF option would also be very welcome but PLEASE let individual visualisations be exported as images to prevent users from having to capture low-res screen grabs.

I finally started to roll Power BI reports out to end users in my org yesterday. The FIRST question that BOTH people had was "How do I export this so I can share it with my external partners?" A little unfortunate that the best solution I had to offer to them was "take a screenshot".
I'm new on buisiness intelligence domain and actually working on a BI project in which the first step I took is choosing a BI solution among the others comparing each other according to the features they offer, one of these features is the "Exporting feature" , Does this feature exist yet ? or not .. because it's one of the an important features am cibling..
Thanks by advance for your help
Please allow multiple pages to be printed... Also scheduled report printing at 2:00 am
End users of my reports always ask for this feature. This is a real short-coming when trying to promote the use of Power BI. Please include this basic feature ASAP.
Whenever I tried to promote power BI to my clients, its really disappointing to say a simple PDF/Excel download feature is not available here, not all the users will login everyday to Power BI Service to check the reports. Please add download PDF/Excel features as soon as you can.
Why is this not already available? I guess so that way companies have to use Power BI service instead of hosting on-premise? That really seems like the only reason I can think of because if it isn't that, Microsoft has seriously failed to anticipate what its users will do with Power BI reports
In addition, the export to csv doesn't export sub or grand totals. So my customers slice/filter to get to the data they want, export it only to find that they have to go back into excel and redo the sub and grand totals. It's a complete waste of time. What's strange is I can see the sub and grand totals in the DIV/ on the Power BI report screen and I would normally use js to add an indentifier to the DIV and grab it (along with css) for the report print or export.

Needs to include export to CSV and Excel as well as a minimum, on a defined schedule (this time / this day of the week / daily / weekly / monthly) to this group of people.
Everyone please go and vote on the other idea MS staffer linked to (https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200/suggestions/19802197).
