Allow subscriptions to personal bookmarks
Please add the ability to subscribe to personal bookmarks. The "Subscribe" feature currently sends a snapshot of the default view with no ability to customize filters in the subscription.
The recent addition of personal bookmarks allows our users to customize reports as needed, and they have been asking for a way to get these personalized bookmark views sent by email. If you could extend the personal bookmarks to the subscription options that would be very helpful.

game changer for me
This is a must have!

This is important, but it won't let me vote. It keeps saying enter a valid email address and complete the captcha. I am using valid email and do not see a captcha.
Either we need the ability to allow for subscribing to bookmarked reports or specify the report page filters or on-page slicers, or we need the ability for the PBI Service to accept runtime edits/bind variables to underlying DirectQuery SQL and store those as subscription variables, or ... I'm sure there are several other options.
I've coded reporting applications to do this, including using Microsoft VBA and customizing another vendor's web-based products. I am quite certain the PBI team can figure this out.
Rather than have 200 customized reports, which are painful to manage across multiple workspace for multiple business units, this feature would allow us to reduce our report count about 30-60%, since customized "bookmarked" reports could then be saved and also scheduled. (It would also be nice to be able to view personal bookmarked variables, to analyze if it should become a "standard" report.)
si, si por favor!
This seems huge to me - if there's any way to get this added to the backlog, this would certainly be in my top 3
This is an absolutely crucial feature to avoid too many customized report development out of a template.
Absolutely shocked this feature is not available. SSRS has this capability!!! The more I use PBI the more I find lacking features compared to other, much older products. Agree with all others who commented that subscriptions are almost useless if you cannot set the filters in a subscription. Seems like this would also be relatively easy to implement technically compared to some of the other features I see announced.

Subscribing to an unfiltered report has very limited usefulness.
Unsure the lag on this compared to similar products in the market
As this idea overlaps with a number of others, maybe it would be possible to unify these.
Together they have about 300+ votes.
I suggest that we merge this idea with the related ideas, to reflect the priority that is the common need across these ideas, to subscribe to the Personal Bookmark that you choose:

Without customized subscriptions, much of the bookmark / personal bookmark functionality loses considerable usability.

a feature must to have as it is there for other competitive products

Agree. This would be very helpful.
Same feedback as the other comments - subscriptions lose most of their usefulness when you can't receive the information relevant to you personally. Need this functionality to unlock the power of subscriptions.
