        What Laz said. It makes little sense and is even a bit annoying. But, its true that going old-school with emails would assist a lot in adoption.

        Anyone who works with a lot of business users without a ton of tech savvy is feeling this pain.

        Even better if a user can sign up for the report to be emailed to them on a schedule that they wish. Example: One user may want it once a week where another wants it once a month.

        This is very much needed!

        What I find in the data driven journey adoption, is that business users still want to have their reports waiting for them in their email.

        Now, I totally can’t grasp this concept as the ability of log into PBI cloud and have me reports/Dashboards waiting for me after being refreshed, seems like the best thing possible.

        However, for many senior level people this is not the case at all! They want to have an email sent to them, with the report attached within that email.

        This was in fact a reason for producing some reports in SSRS instead of PBI.
