How can we improve Power BI?

Allow proper printing of Dashboards

Ctrl P does not do a good job of printing the dashboard. Provide a Print button which optimises printing perhaps defaulting to the filters & title on page 1 and the dashboard sheets in landscape on pages 2 to n+1

    This is a half-cooked feature, it only prints what is visible in page. when users recommended print it should cover all standard printing features.

    This is not completed. I can't print a table that was multiple rows. I can only print what fits on one page. We need a way to be able to print the whole table, regardless of how many rows it is.

    As per many comments below, this is not completed. PDF printing is still very rudimentary. Whilst we would all hope our users will interact with it in the cloud, the reality is that sometimes there is a strong business case to producing a PDF set.

    need a way to iterate over the report data and print entire table by filter. say you are using account numbers, the table data would have all account numbers, but the iterative reports, output, would be by account number. and all table data, visible and non-visible would print,

    Clearly not fixed.
    Printing to PDF only prints the part that is visible on screen.
    When you have scrollbars in tables, you loose more data than is shown in the printout.
    This is when working with the on premise solution.
    Please resolve this.

    Sadly, someone in MS has marked this Completed, when it so clearly is not. We desperately need a properly implemented solution to printing dashboard pages and reports across the service, including Power BI Embedded. Someone else said, Tableau is vastly superior to Power BI in this regard. That should be a wake-up call to someone....

    Very nice visualizations and easy to filter the results, but very hard to export the visuals based on the filtered results. Please improve printing and export to powerpoint options and make it possible to export-print visuals from multiple pages and with filters applied. And note that exporting/printing visuals with current filters applied should not require Edit permissions.

    Printing focused visualisations across multiple pages (i.e. showing all data/rows in the output) is essential!

    Embarassing. Really need to be able to print from a publish-to-web report. Someone comes in and customizes and the first thing they want to do is show someone their results on FB or Insta and... booo. Please fix!
