Not being able to print reports

The absolute most frustrating part about PowerBI is that we can't print reports. When searching I see that I'm not alone!! Please, Microsoft PowerBI team are you listing to users or simply ignoring us? If you have no intentions to add the print functionality please state so. Then we at least I can move on

Hi iversa,

 

Power bi service support printing reports now though the reports can be printed one page at a time. Please follow steps below:

  • Open the report in either Reading View or Editing View.
  • Select File > Print to print the current report page.

  • The Print window for your browser opens.

If you want to just print a visual in your report, follow two steps:

  • Open the visual in Focus mode by hovering over the tile and selecting the Focus icon Focus icon from the top-right corner.
  • Follow steps 2-3 under Print a report page above.

Thank you for your response Jimmy but that is not what I call printing a report. That is like taking a screenshot plus I have to then manually scroll to where I think the next page starts. My report would be 10 pages if I had a way to print it

 

Plus this is what it looks like when I print a page on an 8.5 x 11. Please don't tell me that this is printing a report. I can do much better by using taking a screenshot

 

Please Jimmy don't tell me that this is is how I would print a 10-page report. Your response makes it even more frustrating

It would help too if the data could be exported to Excel and print from there. It has the option to Analyze the data in Excel but that does not return the data they way I see it in the report that I created in PowerBI

Hi iversa,

 

Yes, you can export underly data to exel file from a visual in power bi service, please refer to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/consumer/end-user-export-data.

It does not export the data in the way as I have in my report
