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.Anonymous commented
Especially for large datasets used to provide monthly metrics, a lot of manual effort could be eliminated by providing a function to export either tables (append to existing) or export data from visuals (measures, etc.) to SharePoint Online Lists or other database tools (or even within Power BI itself). This would be a static snapshot feature to capture the current state of dynamic data and preserve/archive history of KPIs.
