Hey @luuminhvuong93 

I don't believe this is possible... there is an option to subscribe but this won't provide the data in CSV format: Subscribe yourself and others to reports and dashboards in the Power BI service 

You could build a UI Flow to automate the UI export steps? - Export data from visualizations 

This script approach is also an option to review - How to Auto Schedule Data Export From Power BI

Thanks mate; but UI flows mean we need to open the laptop to run this task?

Hey @luuminhvuong93 

Web UI Flows work in two steps;

1) Create the Web UI Flow - Create a Web UI flow 

2) Create another Flow to run the Web UI Flow...

This means you can use any of the standard Flow triggers to invoke your UI Flow 🙂

You don't need to be logged on to run the UI Flow...but you do you need to install a gateway on a device which will be used to execute the Flows, could be a good idea to create an Azure VM or at least a dedicated machine. Details here -

Unfortunately, UI flow also needs to download and install additional software, which my laptop cant because I dont have administrative rights ... 😞

So I coun;d not try this method at all
