Paginated reports - please make it available in Pro as well as Premium .. thank you
Thanks for the feedback and your vocal support about it! This is under discussion, so please keep voting this up and providing the feedback/examples of why this is so important to you and your organization.
It is a must have for small IT teams.
Mohammed Adnan commented
It is must. atleast with less capacity..

I think this is a must to have feature in Power BI for all versions. I saw other BI tools and I found out that this feature is available.
I work for SME organization and we create reports that are in the form of tables or matrix. My organization started evaluating Power BI to be the standard tool (since we have O365). Now that we realized that this feature is not supported, we started to consider other solutions such as Tableau and QuickSense.

Our finance team likes Power BI but cannot use it much for month end as most of their reports need to be exported to Excel for adding narratives and also cutting a few different ways. We currently generate these base templates using SSRS... would love to wrap our entire reporting suite into just Power BI as it will also allow us to shift from our remaining on-prem reporting software (SSRS/SQL, VM etc.)

the current pricing model with minimum A4 capacity puts paginated reports out of the reach of smaller ISVs who would like to embed into their application but cannot due to the fact that its cost prohibitive.
we will need to look at alternatives such as Telerik Reports as a result.
Jonathan Sander commented
Paginated Reports as a Premium-only feature is incredibly contradictory to Premium's core feature set which seems geared towards capacities and server performance. From Microsoft's own PowerBI blog:
"Power BI Premium increases capacity limits and provides consistent performance, extending deployments with larger storage sizes, higher refresh rates, isolation and other performance capabilities in the future (e.g. pin to memory, read-only replicas, geo distribution)."
The blog goes onto describe other server-related enhancements as well as on-premise reporting. Paginated Reports feels like an afterthought in Premium for the express purpose of putting it out of reach of smaller organizations.

I also need this in the Pro version. Even an extra $10pm/user would be acceptable.
Carlos Pesquera Nieto commented
For small or medium organizations are more expensive.

We are a small organization and need the ability to migrate existing SSRS reports to the power bi pro service without paying the excessive fees of Premium($5000 per month per anum)
this is the missing piece for E5 users for making Power BI a one stop shop offering for reporting an analytics. Or you could always ship premium with E5 instead of pro.
It would be really great to have this supported in Pro. I'm sure that most of your users have Pro licenses, not Premium, as the cost is prohibitive unless the company is quite large. Cannot believe that the discussion on this has taken so long...
Francisco Lemus commented
Come on!! Premium capacity is only for very large organizations!! There are a lot of businesses that use Power BI Pro, and they all need these features.
Come on guys, it's been almost 10 months now since you put this under evaluation, please make a decision...
We need to know if we have to recommend another product to our customers.
Microsoft , are you hearing us ??? Please enable this option for Pro users as well or give us some update on this.
Carlos Pesquera Nieto commented
Power BI Premium is more expensive for medium or small companies.
Paginated Reports are very important for this companies too.
Erik Maia commented
Like crystal reports . For example, I have a report for a client that has 30 projects. I need to copy every component thought all the projects! If it was like a Crystal Reports, the filters wil do the job. It is going to be ease to process pdf reports for all filters from a dashboard.

Concur with the comments below. Power BI Premium is just too expensive for our small company. There must be a licensing product that will allow our end users to have the power of paginated reports if not only in Power BI Desktop. Our team and our clients are open to the $10/month per user but the nearly $5K per month is a show stopper.
It appears that us small guys need to find another option. Does anyone have a recommendation? Cognos or Tableau working out for anyone?
Amr Guenena commented
We need this to move to Power BI Pro please as it is a complement to Power BI dashboards solution
James Moore commented
without this, it leaves us no option to move to power bi. power bi premium is too expensive for smaller businesses to justify. with power bi pro, we would still need an SSAS server (powerbi pro now support XMLA), plus SSRS server for paginated reports. It wouldn't make sense to have users having to go to 2 BI centres, plus then having to duplicated data models in multiple places. This leaves us in a difficult position where we cannot move to Power BI.
looking in to Cognos and Tableau now. Shame for not releasing this at SMB price point
