They will not add this because you can do all this with Power Automate if you pay more money to get to a higher level subscription. Its all about money, not about them being clueless about what features to offer people. They are clueless enough already. You are supposed to pay $5000 per month for the premium tier so you can schedule a report to export. Even then, its not really "exporting" the report as you cannot export a Power BI report. PDF will give you a screenshot of each tab and if you have a big table, it wont scroll down. Export to excel doesnt even exist. It shows what Power BI really is when they cannot even export to excel which microsoft ownes when EVERY other BI tool does this and has done it for decades. SSRS couldn't do this either. The concept of tabs in SSRS never existed. People have these crazy work arounds for everything because the Power BI is massively lacking.
As part of our migration from Tableau to Power BI this is one of the key major negatives we are getting feedback on from our end users.
Unbelievable it's not an implemented feature in Power BI. It's very useful!!
Hope it's in PBI roadmap and implements asap
This is a major disadvantage in Power BI compared to Tableau and one of the most heard complaints in our move from Tableau to PBI.
This is one of those feature requests that really makes you wonder about how Microsoft evaluates their product roadmap updates. This feature would be INCREDIBLY valuable and EASY for them to build. And it stays in sync with the existing metaphors and approaches they are already using.
It is incredibly limiting to be forced to save the report page defaults in a certain way just to ensure that subscribers see the data filtered as expected. It would enable few report pages to be created because in many cases the only reason we're building additional pages is because users want subscriptions where the only difference between subscriptions is a few filter settings.
I hope Microsoft pays attention and builds this simple and elegant feature.

we need this asap it would be a great feature
We need this function ASAP. It would be ideal for the business if we were able to have users bookmark their data (as default view) and then be able to schedule.
Subscribing that only allows for the default report to be sent limits the potential of the feature. Since we normally develop reports for multiple users, they may only want to see data relevant to their specific scope rendering the subscriptions impractical.
This issue would be resolved with the implementation of the ability to subscribe to specific bookmarks in the report, rather than just the default view.
This is still very much needed, I have to create individual reports if I want to subscribe to filtered data which is a pain!
