This is designed by power bi product team, In the original version, there is no "hide page" feature, so it only export all the page.
and then add a "hide page" feature, therefore “exclude hiden tabs” is also included.
For your requirement, you could post your new idea in Power BI ideas and vote for it to make coming sooner.
Thank for your feedback
I do understand but it seems to be more defect than new thins. Can’t it be easily adjusted thaty ‘exlude hiden report tabs’ will be ticked by default?
As the name suggests ‘hidden’ means that the report admin does not want to share the content. With current set up it is usless to recommend as user can see more than thay should.
Could you please just pass it to the Power bi team to improve it please.
Thank you for your suggestion, We could submit the issue of power bi to power bi product team, but for product improvements,
Power bi product team will priority to adopt the idea that customer voting.
Thank for your feedback again.
