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

Would be a very helpful feature. sending subscription to multiple people in 6 countries and each should receive a snapshot with their country filter

This is actually basic functionality, that should be available in any reporting tool.

it's at least strange, that nobody thought of doing that originally.

Our company is very much interested on this feature as well.


This was something we expected to have 4-5 years ago when we started to use Power BI, as Subscription (with pre-selected filters) is a basic feature in Reporting Services for example.


Having this possibility would solve various scenarios. Subscriptions can be a powerful tool that can be enhanced much more in Power BI service. Thank you.

This idea can be joined with an older one Microsoft Idea (powerbi.com)

I think Power BI Robots can do that.


For single selection, you can use the Recipients tab and subsequent steps here:

You can also get multiple selections by going to the Filter tab. I don't have a video reference for that, I just messed around to see what I could do.

Feature must also extend beyond the current limitation of 24 total subscriptions "per report" which makes it useless for a single report with hundreds or thousands of users.
