I am doing work for a very small client, YTD revenue is $4,227.
They would like to have a dashboard export to PDF and sent to an email list on an automated basis.
It looks like I would have to ask this client to pay $4,000 PER MONTH to add this ability? I'm not sure how to break this news to my client 🙂
To export your Power BI report to PDF with filters and slicers (with a Power BI Pro license), see https://medium.com/bi-helper/automated-distribution-of-power-bi-reports-and-dashboards-25fde6c68af0.
BI Helper is a third-party SaaS tool that automates the generation and emailing of PDF / PPTX reports from Power BI to users inside and outside your organization. Subscription plans start at $50 per month.

Unfortunately it looks like PowerAutomate cannot be used either, it reports an error:
