Microsoft, democratizing technology can not happen if you keep useful tools available to expensive tiers only.
I think Microsoft should consider that we live in a new world with Coronavirus that will affect the economy for many years. They should help companies around the world, and this is something that can really help us! Microsoft I know you can do it and I know you want to help us!
As many have said, I work for a company that has to small of a work force to implement premium capacity. Honestly, they would drop Power BI all together if the cost went up that much. However, one of the major hurdles is getting them to understand that Power BI isn't designed for printing. Using Paginated reports would give them the best of both worlds. Not being able to print is limiting my ability to expand the platform.
Microsoft - 8 months under review is sufficient time. Please pull the trigger. How many more comments\votes do you need to mull over? EVERYBODY has this need. Keeping this capability in Premium is selfish and hurting your customers.
As far as I know, Power BI licenses are based on scaling and usage within an organization, not on functionality... Then why would you do the opposite regarding Paginated reports? Also smaller companies can benefit from Paginated Reports but are unable to afford it since the gap between Pro and Premium is way too large. It's a shame that something so important is not available to smaller companies. Making this available for pro users will make the product so much more complete.
This would be a game changer. I hope you guys realize that..will beat all the other BI tools out there.

The premium option is simply not an option for us as we are a small company and simply can't afford it.
I don't understand why paginated reports are not available under pro.

New small business owner. Heavy industrial testing and repair. Wanting to improve quality of machinery maintenance and inspection reports, etc. Not unusual for forms to be filled out by hand in the field, entered in Word back at the office, pictures added manually, report converted to PDF, then emailed to customer. Aging customer base - I've had to show some how to download Adobe reader. Have tried other app builder solutions with some success (no more hand-written forms or additional data entry!) but huge room for improvement with functionality. Found Power Platform, tested Powerapps and Power BI...seriously changes everything. BUT...discovered paginated report limitation. Struggling in my first year of business as it is, premium out of the question. Very disappointed, thought this was the answer. Would love to learn the suite to offer awesome visualization reporting to some of our "new school" customers, but cannot make the investment in time if it will not benefit my core of primarily "old school" customers who want in on a page. It's the game-changer that isn't.
This is under discussion .... FOR EVER AND EVER!!!
Paginated reports - please make it available in Pro as well as Premium!
We can make a report locally but cannot publish to the service, almost there but not quite:(
This would be excellent!!
.. thank you
Can u post the results of the closed room survey u conducted.
Dashboards present high level visuals of the most important information required to achieve specific business objectives.
They are designed for at-a-glance monitoring and decision making.
Yet users still require the need to deep dive into the more granular details accommodated by paginated reports.
Requiring users to use a different tool (ex: SSRS) takes away from the Power BI experience and may impact adoption of Power BI.
With the jump in price from Pro to Premium being so large, Paginated Reports are just not an option for us, which is such a shame considering the potential it would have for our customers.
Paginated reports is only available for A4/P1 customers, so you need to pay $5000 per month to get started. Not therefore available for developers with smaller customer bases. Sadly therefore we cannot create an application that can rival professional looking ones as I have to tell my customers to use Snip for their reports. Shame.

We're a non-profit and paginated reports are critical to our infrastructure. We're moving to the cloud and faced with not having SSRS. PowerBI Paginated Reports were the perfect solution until we saw the cost. This is impossible for us. Time to look for other solutions.
I work for a Non-Profit, but doesn't qualify for your Non-Profit Status with Microsoft, so justifying the pricing for Premium just isn't there considering it cost more than Tableau at that point.
@admin make up your mind soon. Pls come up with a PRO version of Paginated Reports SOON!

We are moving ahead with a deployment of Power BI Pro in a multi-tenant government consortium that is heavily dependent on tabular (paginated) reports. This is one of our first enterprise deployments of a cloud app and it was a struggle to get here due to culture and fear of data vulnerability in the cloud. As such, we could only get this project off the ground with Power BI Pro licensing, not Premium. This limitation may be a showstopper.
Please make paginated reports available on Pro, it would be amazing!
