    Hello guys!

    I want end users have ability to export to pdf pages they want instead of all report's pages.
    But can't find this functionality.
    Any ideas how to do this?
    p.s.I can't use "hide pages and so on" because end users have read only permissions.

    Thank you in advance! ​

    Hi @Arthur Konstantynov

    you can get your created report in PDF format as well.

    Open your created report and then just click on file in upper left side then you can see option Export to PDF and click there your all report you will get in PDF format as well. Please find snapshot for your reference.




    Please let me know if i missed anything

    @Arthur Konstantynov I'm fairly certain you are looking at an all or nothing scenario here. There is no way that I know of to say give me pages 1,3,6. Your best bet if possible is to break them up into separate reports and publish each one. You can combine them into a single dashboard for viewing all together, then from there they can click on each report they want and export it.​

    Hi Sam
    I know about all of these limitations and specifications.
    I'm just trying to see how another developers overcome these limitations.

    Thanks,

    Hi Arthur !

    It seems difficult, even when you publish a report through [Publish App] option & user can navigate to Export to PDF from PBI Service they have the option to choose from either to include or exclude hidden tabs from export.

    But good thing is since its logging the hidden tabs somewhere in future this option will be available in Tenant Admin settings where you can restrict users from exporting hidden tabs.

    Make sure you submit this as an idea. Would be a quick work around from MS Team.

    am not affiliated with this company in any way -

    Take a look at Power BI Robots by DevScope.  It does a very good job of scheduling custom snapshots from published Power BI reports and works very well for me.
