How can we improve Power BI?

Export/print multiple report pages directly from Power BI service

One of the advantages of Tableau vs. Power BI is the ability to select multiple dashboards (report pages) and export to .pdf in their desktop application (no additional software needed). Adding this capability in Power BI service (not report server) would allow Power BI to be even more competitive against Tableau. Its a feature that's a need, not a want.

    With the new Export to PowerPoint (Preview) option when in the Report view I can now finally do this. It exports all the reports. In my case I had 6 tabs full of different visualizations. Once it's exported to PowerPoint, open the presentation and just remove the pages you don't want. I had to go to the Design tab in PowerPoint and change the "Slide Size" to "Custom Slide SIze". Then pick "Portrait" for the Slides. Then I printed it to a PDF and it worked perfectly.

    Can this be done yet? A multi-page report like a Aged Accounts Receivable, etc. Not the specific report but a multi-page report to printer or pdf. Yes very frustrating. Might as well use SSRS.

    I agree. I find this limitation extremely frustrating. Really? Print one page at a time??? That is not a real world solution.
