Report scheduling and exporting to folder

Currently we're using several Reporting Tools (Microstrategy, Incorta, OBIEE Tibco Spotfire etc). Basically WE PULL DATA and select Tables, Fields, Colums. Many reports are scheduled and exported to folders. When some users need it at the moment, they just open the program, run the report, export and use it. It exports in CSV or XLSX.

 

With Power Bi Service (Premium) is it possible to:

-Schedule a report and export automatically to a folder or deliver it to an email?

-Export the table data on CSV or XLSX format?

-Schedule a report so it runs automatically. We need to be able to chose when to run for eg calendar (Daily, Weekly, Monthly), time (several time a day, several time a week, be able to chose specific days of the week or month). This is very important so that we can unify the reportings.

 

Thanks in advance for your time.

Re: Report scheduling and exporting to folder

Hey @dplex ,

 

as you are on Power BI Premium, you might want to use the Paginated Reports feature, as this supports email subscriptions:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/consumer/paginated-reports-subscriptions

 

It's very likely that this feature will also be available in the future for Power BI Reports.

At the current moment you can create something on your own using this:
