Thank you for the vocal support around this option! We are pleased to make available paginated reports on a per user basis with the new Premium per user option announced at Ignite 2020 in September. The public preview of this new offering is coming soon available at no cost throughout the preview period. To register for priority access to the preview, please visit the following post to learn more - https://powerbi.microsoft.com/blog/priority-access-sign-up-for-power-bi-premium-per-user-public-preview-now-available/
Please revisit this request: Folks may only need a handful of paginated reports at their company - hoping to move from SSRS into the cloud, and PPU licenses should allow a technical report designer to share a final report with any Pro user without requiring every consumer of the report to upgrade to PPU.
It's not possible for an SMB to expect PPU licenses for everyone opening the report, and the $5k/month price tag for premium capacity is impossible to afford or justify for companies with under 1000 users.
How it this tagged as COMPLETED? It is not available in Pro.
BI is new to my division of a global company. I'm trying to get buy-in for Power BI since we are already largely on Microsoft Stacks. To scale, I am starting with Pro licenses but cannot even proof-of-concept such a basic reporting feature (maybe eventually to a premium capacity) even with a paid pro license. Please, guys.
I'm getting tired of being nickle and dimes to death with add another license and yet another license. There is no way to get prints of a list item unless you use PowerBI and PowerBI Pro does not do paginated reports. Please add paginated reporting to Pro
I agree with this comment "Unfortunately creating a new paid for Premium user licence to get paginated reports does not solve the requested item for it to be available to premium license users, therefore I do not consider this activity as PLANNED." Adding a Premium per user option is not adding it to Pro. Why would Pro (meaning professional) not include the basic value of a paginated report? I agree with the other comment that not including it will make people choose other products. Again you've shown why it has been so hard for me to get my company's management on board with fully using your reporting products (SSRS and now this one). Sad but true. Guess I will have to learn the other reporting tools they've been pushing me to use.

We need Paginated Reports for Power BI Embedded with the lower capacity SKUs such as A1 and A2 as well. Our usage doesn't warrant paying for A4 capacity, which is now required to get Paginated Reports. So we would need to pay substantially more just to get Paginated Reports. That forces us to host SSRS on premise, which adds complexity and gap in integration.
Please, please, please! Having a hybrid SSRS & PowerBI setup sucks. We want to move with the times. Please add this to the Pro licence.
For Paginated Reports to have the same ability / functionality as PowerBI Pro, is a small ask.
Initially I thought this would be such a great solution in our company, but then that price !!! It is incomprehensible to have such a massive price difference.
Now I am forced to look for an alternative solution and I am guessing that we are one of many companies that are willing to pay even double the pro license just to have the Paginated Reports capabilities and ability to publish to the Service. But it is going to cost us a 1000 times more to just to have that ability.
This is bot feasible at this point and the hunt for an affordable Report authoring tool continues.... ;-(
Feature is required for Pro users as alternative products are being used by organisations which is a shame. The pricing gap is far too large to contemplate and does not stack up so it is a no brainer that customers and organisations use other reporting options.
