    absolutely! It can resolve a lot of reporting problem and make life easier for export to pdf, print etc.

    Yes! Paginated reports (SSRS style RDP) are the missing link between Power BI and operational SQL reporting (DB and DW) - providing it to Pro users will encourage adoption of both rather than the brick wall of Premium cost to most SMEs. Premium should be about scalability, not functionality, otherwise customers go elsewhere, earlier.

    We have a project we put on hold because we could not download cross tab results to Excel, could not keep on screen formatting, etc. If this could be resolved in Pro, we would purchase licenses and roll out to approximately 150 Pro users. If not, we are in the process of setting up in another reporting system (non Microsoft) and will not utilize Power BI at all. Deal maker or breaker. Please roll out to Pro.

    MS, give us some updates on this request. Why can't we have Paginated reports with PRO? For small non-profits like us, it is IMPOSSIBLE to get expensive Premium.

    As a consultant for Microsoft's Project Online product, there would be many delighted customers if paginated reports were available for, without needing the Premium service as this is typically cost prohibitive.

    To provide paginated reports at the moment for Project Online customers typically involves SSRS along with hosting an on-premise Report Server; now all of a sudden Project Online is not really "online" anymore.

    Please, please make this a PowerBI pro feature.

    Please add to Power BI Pro Service. We have rapid transit BI framework developed over 10+ on MS BI and ML stack. We moved to PBI, but had to retain low level detailed multilevel reports for engineers in SSRS. Engineering company tends to start with Pro and then commit to Premium based on solution's ROI. So, our market really needs this awesome feature in Pro. Thank you. Have to admit that I am surprised and impressed the way MS PBI team listens to customers and developers. Keep up!

    I'm a Microsoft BI and Azure Data Services Architect. From a cost, development, security and scalability perspective the best combination for an organization is to use Azure Analysis Services combined with Power BI Pro licenses. Paginated reports are the only missing piece in this setup. Please add to Power BI Pro Service.

    Will be looking at other alternatives until this is delivered. Major shortcoming in the product stack.

  • Mitch Green commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Including this seemingly simple feature with Pro would be a game changer for so many of us. Providing smaller to mid sized shops the ability to further leverage existing SSRS investments would push us over the top in choosing Power BI over competing products.

    I agree with all the comments posted below. The current paginated feature is extremely expensive. I don't think we can even think of offering this to our customers. I have no option but to look for an alternative to powerbi as pagination requirement is so high in our road map.

  • Koen Verbeeck commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's just a shame that there is no true SSRS in the cloud. For customers who have been using the Microsoft BI stack for over a decade and want to migrate to the cloud, there's no alternative. Suddenly they need to purchase Power BI Premium? Or do a convoluted work around with Power BI embedded?

    I already pay $10/month per consumer without a Premium capacity, however, this far less than paying for Premium. This feature should be included as part of the Pro Licensing without a doubt. We would all very much appreciate an update on if this is coming or not, or if we need to forget about it and invest in other solutions.

  • James Houck commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes x 1,000,000,000! Any sane developer/business knows we need this in the standard Power BI service. Please make it available!

  • Laz commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Needed very much so!
    We are a buisness that does not need Premium Capacity, but need Paginated Reporting!!!

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Sounds reasonable to make Paginated Reports available in Power BI Pro. PBI Premium capacity os much too costly for a lot of smaller companies ( <100 fte). Being able to use this feature would still generate income for Microsoft.

    We badly need this and the price increase for the Premium is way too steep for our company. Please make it available also to Pro licences.
