    Looks like the new workspace experience will solve for this with the concept on "Contact List" The new contact list feature, available in workspace settings or under advanced when creating a workspace, allows you to specify which users receive notification about issues occurring in the workspace. By default, any user or group with the Admin role in the workspace is notified, but you can customize the list. Just be aware that users or groups listed in the contact list will be shown in UI experiences in the future to help users get help related to the workspace. This feature is especially useful if you want to track through a group alias issues occurring in various workspaces so you can work with the workspace Admins to address users’ needs in a timely manner.

    Yes, there are too many factors with connectivity between Azure through the Gateway and then to the On-Premise Data Source to expect things to work 100% of the time. An ability to put "Number of retries" option in the Scheduled Refresh screen would go a long way to compensate for all the moving parts that can fail refreshes.

    We have intermittent failures that can be attributed to network issues, issues we can't see, and db availability issues (table being locked etc.). All of them are solved by simply trying the refresh again. This is a simple addition that can go a long way in increasing the stability of the Scheduled Refreshes.

    So we have documented a migration plan from our current analytics tool to Power BI and I would say for at least 50% of them (we have over 100 dashboards and 1000s of reports being distributed to 1000s of users) this "export matrices while keeping formatting (ie excel export)" is a show stopper. I know as visualization people we want all users in the business to consume the visuals in the report and not have to export, but most of us are data analyst and/or people in IT and we do not get to go to end users and tell them they can't export a matrix/pivot table that keeps the same look and feel. It's not a thing. Most of us are providing a service. And these people want to play with their matrix tables in excel.

    We recently announced the ability to schedule PDF attachments for Paginated Reports in Power BI (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/e-mail-subscriptions-for-paginated-reports-is-now-available/).
    We’re planning to have this ability for Power BI reports as well, but it will take time to put that feature in place.

    For folks asking about the ability to print/export the entire table of data to PDF or other format, we’ll be announcing shortly the ability to publish paginated reports using Power BI datasets, which would allow folks to create simple paginated report tables to use for this scenario, as it’s not currently possible to do this with Power BI reports natively at this time.
