issue with subscriptions to reports

When I add a subscription to a report, I uncheck the  Also give access to this report checkbox.

 

No matter what when I save it or go back in to uncheck it and save, it always comes back checked and will send a link to the report.

 

Am I misunderstanding what that does?  Does the checkbox eliminate the Go to report > link in the email or is there an error with saving changes?

Hi there

I would expect it to send the link, but not grant the person shared access to the report.

I guess I was expecting it to just not have the link.  No big deal if that's how it works.

 

Shouldn't it save that the box is unchecked?  No matter if I uncheck and save or delete and setup again, when you go back in to view the subscription, it has the box checked always.

 

If you're not paying attention and make changes and click save you'd then be saving with it checked.

 

 

Yeah I agree i would expect it to not show the link to the report or dashboard if you uncheck the box

Chiming in here as I came accross this today and this is unexpected. My goal is to have automated emails go out to the appropriate users notifying them "Data is refreshed to latest Timeperiod" (when refreshed) but do NOT want to include the pre-set link as we have them coming in via their own sharepoint portal (not the app.powerbi.com portal).

 

Is there a confirmed way to either a)disable this link (checking/unchecking the box did nothing) or b) adjusting the URL that this puts out?

 

Thank you!

Hi there

Currently as far as I know there is no way to customize the email that gets sent from Subscriptions.

There is possibly an idea at https://ideas.powerbi.com which you could vote for?
