How can we improve Power BI?

Subscribe others to emails for reports or dashboards that have RLS

Power BI now allows users to subscribe others to emails for reports and dashboards. However, if RLS is applied to the dataset this is not possible. This idea will remove this restriction.

    also would be excellent to include multiple report page attachments to one email

    also, in subscriptions I want an option to control the content of an email, for example no link to the report

    Subscriptions in general are a very incomplete feature. You need RLS support, and proper schedules (daily, weekly, monthly) just like SSRS and IBM Cognos.

    Also Microsoft must consider opening subscribtion option to free users, or at least to user attempting to subscribe to report/dashboard included in Premium capacities.

    How bad do we feel stating our colleagues: "hum no sorry, you can't subscribe. That would require PRO, and because we decided to go Premium we only grant PRO to content creators".

    Another comment: is this fair to show the buttons (subscribe as an example) to all users even though this is limited to PRO?

    I inadvertently flagged this as inappropriate. Please pardon me for doing this. Just an honest, inadvertent click of the mouse right at the wrong moment. I didn't see a way to reverse it. Again, pardon me.

    any of reports built on SSAS implementing RLS looses email subscription functionality. It is a must. Please provide ASAP.

    This function is useless without RLS.

    And ironically, if we want RLS to apply for email subscription, we can have the users subscribe themselves. But guess what? Self subscription does not apply to PREMIUM reports. Wow.

    All our reporting are connected through AAS with row level security. It's useless if there's no such capability.

    without this functionality subscription for users does not add value. Microsoft please work on this..
