Extend the email subscriptions feature, currently in public preview, to include support for email snapshots of reports in specific filter/slicer states.

More information about the feature can be found here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/introducing-email-subscriptions-in-power-bi-stay-informed-when-it-matters/

It would be nice if Power BI subscriptions carried over some of the old SSRS data-driven subscriptions capabilities.

Here is an Idea that the changes made to report before or after subscribing should show up in the email subscription for the particular report. But currently email subscriptions are sent with the report's default filter and slicer states.

When you subscribe to a specific page, you can only get a snapshot of the default page. However for some cases, I would like to get the report only for some specific filters. I would like to have this flexibility , something like a bookmark option for subscription.

Hello,

We would like to be able subscribe to a report with specified filters.

Nowaday the function "subscribe" work only without filters.

Best regards,

Marc

"This has been requested since we have several high level production reports that members of management then filter to their specific concentration(s). Without this, the subscription feature is mostly useless. Looking forward to an updated timeline - hopefully soon!" - I second this!

Please prioritize this feature as it is an essential function to be able to have filtered data in the attachment as well as in the preview image of the subscription emails

RE: Subscribe to email snapshots of reports in *specific filter/slicer states*

Hello,


I just did a subscription and I was totally suprised to receive the whole report.

Totally useless to not subscribe to a bookmark, who want the rport not filtered, 1% of use cases ?.

When consumers receive a Subscription email, the content; visual and attachment are at default values - not filtered.

Please consider adding a Subscription option to allow Filtered content to be emailed. Similar to Share Option "share with filtered content and slicers".

Thank you.
