    I know Microsoft don't want users exporting and sharing data with other users without having them pay for more licenses, sure... But it's the number one inconvenience every single time a user needs to share data with an outside party (eg. a customer or supplier). It makes Power BI a chore to use, for every one of my 20 users. If you need to adjust the payment model before you do this then, by all means, go for it... Just give us some serious data export options instead of screenshots already, it's embarrassing having to explain why this is the way it is before teaching users how to re-pivot data in Excel and that, yes, they will have to do this every time!

    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.

    There's still no way to export or print large matrix tables. I know you don't want users exporting and sharing data with other users without having them pay for more licenses, sure...

    Looks like the new filters panel could be your solution. You can keep all your filters in that panel and then when you make a pdf, they don't show. Maybe not exactly what you want but it's a start.

    Need to print whole matrix tables. Can we have an option to print just one visual with some print options? I'd be super happy with an export option that gives a pivot table in Excel as an alternative.

    Basically what we wanted from the print options (but all we got was a set of screen grabs wrapped in a pdf).

    We use AM/PM times in the UK but it's still impossible to tell what 12 AM and 12 PM are! AM and PM are short for the latin terms 'ante meridiem' and 'post meridiem' which mean before and after noon (mid-day)... But 12 is neither before or after... It's either 12 noon or 12 midnight.

    A twenty-four hour clock would definitely be much easier!

    We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.

    At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.

    You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh

    We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!

    Drill down mode is really hard to explain to users. I agree with the idea of double clicking being much more intuitive. I'd also like to see a hierarchy that users (for shared reports) could see or even interact with. It's hard for these users to understand how hierarchy works when they don't see the order it's in.
