    Very much needed because this is a way of backing up the report design and configuration. Charts can get removed because users no longer have access to the data source, and there is no backup / source control mechanism.

    This is a critical need. If you inherit a project and don't have the PBIX file, being able to export it from the PowerBI site is a must.

    I am also looking for the ability to download Dashboards/Reports authored in the PBI web to a local .pibx file that can be modified in the PBI desktop

    Our business users wants to download data from Power BI Preview Reports.
    Could you please enable option?

    I also wanted the ability to download it as an excel file if we created the reports using excel

    is it possible to run incremental data into specific cells transitioning with a hot key and call it a cell library like a drop down but the quantity is never set but rather keeps changing to show comparative results (long arrays).

    Additionally, create the ability to have sub cells below a cell for added functions, this could make the total number of rows and cells much smaller but just as powerful.

    I have other suggestions
