What do you know about implementing paginated reports in Power BI? A recent client wanted to know their options for implementing operational reports, which are optimized for printing, alongside their interactive, self-service Power BI reports. Another client had recently learned about paginated reports within Power BI but was reluctant to use new software in their productions operational reporting.
Paginated reports is the answer; and as far as the concern of using new software, I've got a little secret. Paginated reports are basically SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) with the same capabilities just slightly different implementation.
SSRS has been around for a long time. It is bullet proof operational reporting, optimized to create the types of printable reports that fit perfectly within the margins and produce multiple pages. Power BI reports are optimized for an interactive analytics experience for users who can click on something in the report and it slices and interacts.
You have 3 options for using paginated reports alongside Power BI interactive reports.Option 1 – Continue to use SSRS like we always have, installed on your own report server on premises.
Option 3 – Using paginated reports in the Power BI Service in the cloud only.
So, that’s all you need to know about paginated reports in Power BI and the options that you have. If you have questions about any of these options or about Power BI in general and how you can take advantage of this powerful BI tool, our experts can help, from planning to implementation.
