    The ability to publish paginated/Report Builder reports on the Power BI Service with our Pro licenses would be a huge benefit. We're a small organization with limited budget, so Premium is not an option for us, but the ability to produce paginated reports would meet our needs for some key use cases where the ability to page through and print tables with hundreds/thousands of rows is required - and that requirement cannot be met with the scrolling tables approach in Power BI Desktop.

    Another update on this item – users now have the ability to set up scheduled subscriptions with paginated reports and 6 different formats, along with parameters per subscription to allow further personalization. There is also now the ability to create paginated reports against any Power BI dataset in the service, and we’re planning to add drillthrough from Power BI to Paginated Reports in the short term.

    We still have plans to support e-mail attachments for Power BI reports as well in the coming months, and we’ll share more specifics once we get closer to starting that work.

    Just two add my two cents, this could be huge for us, although I can see there are numerous issues with the implementation, e.g., how it works w/ RLS and Security Groups, whether specific Bookmarked versions of reports can be set up for PDF/email distribution, etc. I think the tables/scrolling issue is a red herring: I would expect we'd have to set up reports so all relevant data appear on the canvass without scrolling - a PDF obviously cannot display records which are not visible on the canvass.

    The key thing for us is to be able to: 1. Export high-quality PDFs with control over margins, etc. (currently adjusting print settings can easily throw things off, forcing you to make changes to the print settings, then close/cancel and return so that your adjustments are recognized by the format is not off); 2. Export all pages of a Power BI Dashboard, once it is opened in report view (? i.e., when pages of the Dashboard become tabs), via File > Print. Now the only option is print current page, but it would be good to be able to print all pages.

    Really we're missing visual formatting options which would make a lot of this unnecessary (e.g., shadow).

    The option to embed on SharePoint pages is seamless and fantastic, but it would be great to have have a full screen mode and enjoy the full Power BI UX in this context.

    Thanks for your feedback on this issue – while we’d like to enable this, there is currently no timetable around doing so. There is the option as a workaround the create a paginated view as a drillthrough of the visual and have a formatted version you can export to Excel, but understand this isn’t a solution everyone can take advantage of currently.
