Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for your greate work.

 

I share this Email Subscription feature with our friends.

and, I try this by my reports.

- Subscribe my reports.

- View mails by Outlook 2016 on Windows 10

- Got mails by Outlook on Windows 10 mobile.

 

I hope to subscribe mobile mode reports as email for view on Phone.

to daily check reports on my Phone.

Re: Email Subscriptions Public Preview Feedback

Three bits of feedback:

  1. The timestamp on the email appears to be unlocalized
  2. Certain OOB visuals (KPI, slicer) don't render well
    • KPI does not show all details, including goal and distance
    • Support for new slicer features (date, slider) does not currently exist
  3. Images appear scrunched up f they reach from margin to margin (left to right)

Do you have any tips to fix these issues?

 

I've noticed these issues persist in the export to PowerPoint Preview so it is likely they are related to the rendering engine.

 

In any case, this is an excellent feature and I look forward to when it is GA.

How is security handled?

 

Does the subscription include the username so when there is RLS in a tabular data model on SSAS it passes that back so only the appropriate rows as defined in the user roles in SSAS are returned?

 

Thanks!

Hey all -

 

Thanks for the feedback - keep 'em coming!

 

RE Yoshihiro - we are looking into this. To help us prioritize, please feel free to create a topic on ideas.powerbi.com and submit your ideas there.

 

RE cwebb22 - we are aware of all the issues you mentioned, and are looking to address them during the course of public preview. Rest assured that our goal is that you'll get a timestamp in the right timezone, and that the report pages render with no issues in the email.

 

RE OneWithQuestion - with respect to security: only users who have access to the report in Power BI will be able to subscribe themselves. If the user loses access to the report, the subscriptions will cease. Subscriptions will honor the RLS configuration for the user that set it up.

Great start.  Please add the ability to CC: additional email addresses.  Will be an awesome way to support proactive communications.

Re: Email Subscriptions Public Preview Feedback

A very helpful feature would be a option to SELECT the time that the email is sent.  Some of our reports are refreshed multiple times throughout the day but the most meaningful to see in an email report would be the data at close of business.  As it is currently configured, the email report is sent at the first instance of refresh which is not entirely what we need.  Thanks for listening!
