    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.

    I'm shocked that this does not already exist. It is such a basic feature that every other BI program I've ever worked on supports. Live data is great most the time, but you need to be able to snapshot data also and being able to save it as a pdf is the easiest option .The current option of 1 page at a time is hardly useful and just creates a time consuming process.

    Really need to be able to print more than 1 page at a time.
    A screenshot does not add value Printing/Export functions in PBI should mirror those available in SSRS - How could this requirement have been missed?

    Users need report to be exported to excel and powerpoint for further actions or sharing with outside organization.

    It is a big setback that my team is not able to get all the filtered pages in a report, directly to a power point or pdf! Either they have to make pdf one page at a time or snip one page at a time and paste in power point slides.

    I am working for a finance team, and it would be really useful for my manager to able to export the reports to different formats and distribute them

    Even removing the 15 page limit would be incredibly helpful interim solution

    I highly support this feature addition- I was shocked that it was not already available. Makes what could be a potentially great product much more lack luster..

    Another supporter of this feature. We're using SSRS (and wanting to leverage PBI more) for our On Premise organisational reporting and requirements for monthly reports to be generated and historically stored as PDFs.

    Please look into it and add it to earliest , tis is one reason for the users to go to ssrs route
