We’re looking into this request, thanks for everyone’s votes and comments.
It looks like many of the requests will be addressed by the new ‘Sticky filters’ capability. Now when you log out of Power BI and come back to a report, the same items will be selected as when you left.
For those who’re looking to have a ‘last month’ selection, the relative date slicer might help.
Those with comments about currencies where having multiple selected makes the report meaningless – the report will load with whatever selection the author saved, so if you save it with one currency selected your users will see that by default.
If there are scenarios that these features don’t address, please let us know in your comments – if you are really specific it’ll help us build the feature to work just the way you want!
One frustration I have is not being able to control the default for a relative date slicer. The main issue being Last Month. When selected it defaults to Last Month (Last 30 Days) but we need Last Month (Calendar). This catches out many users and reflects inaccurate data in reports. Meaning another counter-intuitive selection on the slicer to achieve the desired results.
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.

Checking with Will Thompson and moving status to backlog
Adding my vote, extremely distracting when presenting reports and not even a useful menu. Needs better UI, transparency or something else.
Good suggestion! Is anyone else trying to create a weighted/balanced scorecard? Please add your votes!
