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.

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.
So this idea was submitted on 11/8/2018. We are coming up on its 2-year anniversary and it is still "Under Review".
What is Microsoft's official response to this? It's either in the plan or not. Companies need clear direction so they can make decisions on reporting tools and purchases.
I was watching a Microsoft-sponsored training channel and once again they posted the Power BI Product Portfolio listing Report Builder as a "Free paginated report authoring tool" side-by-side with Power BI Premium, for "Large scale deployments." Apparently the only time you need paginated reports is in a large scaled deployment with dedicated capacity. The marketing team needs to check the accuracy of their material...
Power BI printing functionality is very limited. If there is a table that demands scrolling, not all data is printed at the moment.
Paginated reports would solve that issue.
This is a feature gap for Power BI Pro users.
We have to use Excel for this which makes no sense.
Please make this available.
It's not just Enterprise that needs pixel perfect reports.
Please make this available in Pro licensing!!
Pro $15 p.m. vs premium $ 4.5k p.m ?! Just Not feasible ..
Data displayed on a visual vs paginated is just rendering ? Same data ..
Cost should be about compute power which is cheap nowadays..
Love power bi! Please include rendering for paginated reports ASAP
Power BI Pro should incorporate the ability to print and share detailed high quality reports. It is not feasible for small, medium or non profit organisations to spend big dollars on this.
$60,000+ a year just to publish a report is insane. This needs to be changed to Pro ASAP!! Our company spent weeks drawing up Proof of Concepts with paginated reports and interactive dashboards, only to scrap it all because a Premium Workspace was the only option and it is WAY, WAYYYY out of our budget. Now we're using SAP Crystal Reports instead because it is literally 1/10th of the price and only a one-off purchase, not a annual recurring commitment.
Tl;dr either make Premium A LOT cheaper, or allow Pro to publish paginated reports.
My company, a SMB, has the SQL Server with Quality Assurance package together with Power BI Pro. Spending another 60K plus a year for Paginated Reports will be out of our budget. Having paginated reports included with Pro would also really make sense in migrating all of our SAS reporting into Power BI. We are looking at a further where all our reporting solutions will be hosted on Power BI
There is a lot of demand for Paginated reports especially when migrating from a legacy reporting tool such as Oracle Discoverer. In order to consolidate the applications and BI tools used in any organization, this should be a must have feature. SMBs don't have big budgets to purchase new tools and applications for every business need.
Microsoft, don't ignore SMBs and partners who help SMBs. We are forced to use a mixture of Power BI and SSRS which does not have any logical sense.
This will help tremendously for most of my SME customers, instead of trying to ask them to host an additional Azure VM just for the SSRS and complicated the solution architecture.
