Report Export to Excel based on Schedule (Email,Shared Path)

Hi ,

we are using SQL enterprise edition,with which PowerBI Report server onpremise Aug2018 version we are deploying dashboards and reports.

here the way how SSRS reports output is scheduled to shared path or email (data driven,event driven etc) options.

simmilar option we are expecting for PowerBI tabular visuals to export to Excel or PDF based on a schedule.

 

1.Are there any third party tool which serve the need

2.Any near future plan of Microsoft to have this onpremise for PowerBI dashboards also

 

we have checked Christianstevens Product but it requires cloud Account of AzureAD or Office 365

any other tools please suggest.

Re: Report Export to Excel based on Schedule (Email,Shared Path)

Hi,

 

Have you tried PowerBI Robots yet? It allows you to set a schedule (from minutes to a year) to automatically export Power BI reports as PDF files (and images as well) and send them as an email attachment, to a SharePoint library, File system or a generated URL so you can display it on any device. It's very similar to the solution you linked to but doesn't have the requirements you mentioned.

 

If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask. We're from the team who developed it.

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

Images and PDFs on PowerBI Robots are always generated locally, i.e., on the computer running the agent. The program doesn't currently support DirectQuery (you need to have your reports on Power BI Online), but our team is working on adding it in the next update. If you're not subscribed to the product's newsletter, we can contact you here once it's implemented.

 

Best regards,
