Alternatives/workarounds for automated report exporting

Hello everyone,


After searching for days, I am still looking for an alternative or workaround of automatically exporting certain reports/sheets etc. from my Power BI report for sending them further to the people impacted.


I have looked into Power Automate ( but the downside is that I can't attach anything in the e-mail like a pdf version of the report or even a screenshot of the visual because I need premium capacity, and I am not going to pay 5k/month just for this basic feature in my opinion.


So, are there any workarounds for this ? Is there any way to at least export certain pages or visual from the Power BI report which can then be sent by e-mail to people who don't have a pro license ? 


Thank you!
