You might have noticed in the November update of Desktop we added a new modeling view, that includes the ability to set ‘display folders’ for your fields! While it’s in preview, let us know your feedback, and look for it GAing soon!
Thanks everyone for your support and votes! We’re working on enabling commenting for dashboards and reports in the Power BI service soon. Stay tuned.
Quick update, as there are many of you patiently waiting for an update. We’ve started to implement this feature in the service. Look forward to rolling this out to you soon!
And now the preview is out! Read about our various integration points for Python here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-august-2018-feature-summary/#python
We’ll close out the idea once we make the experience generally available in the coming months.
Hi everyone, wanted to provide an update on this feature. We’ve started work on Export to PDF for Power BI reports in the service, and you’ll see if come in two parts, Initially, you’ll have the ability to export as you do today with PPTX, where you export the file on demand. In the second part, you’ll have the ability to attach a PDF to an e-mail subscription and set a schedule for it.
In addition, as an FYIm the newly announced paginated reports (RDL) in Power BI has export to PDF support already in place, so I encourage you to check that out as well.
Hey everyone – we’re working on enabling this feature soon. Stay tuned for updates.
The relative date slicer (a Preview feature as of June ‘17) gets us close to this with the ’This Month’ or ‘This Year’ settings. That is a dynamic date selection that updates based on the current system date. We plan to add a ‘YTD’/‘MTD’ option to specifically select a range from the start of the month/year up to today, hopefully that’ll address the remaining requirements!
Thanks for the feedback – we have this in our plans for the service and a future release of Power BI Report Server. I will update the status as soon as we’ve started work on this highly requested feature!Anthony B commented
Can you also add the ability to subscribe to reports and have them sent as a PDF export (for all tabs)? Currently subscriptions only send an image of one tab at a time.
This month we added the ability to format text fields based off a numeric field: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#conditionalFormatting
We also are planning on adding a feature that will let you format your text based on comparisons. I’ll update this idea based on our progress on that feature.
