#First, Collect all (or one) of the workspaces in a parameter called PBIWorkspace
$PBIWorkspace = Get-PowerBIWorkspace # Collect all workspaces you have access to
#$PBIWorkspace = Get-PowerBIWorkspace -Name 'My Workspace Name' # Use the -Name parameter to limit to one workspace
#Now collect todays date
$TodaysDate = Get-Date -Format "yyyyMMdd"
#Almost finished: Build the outputpath. This Outputpath creates a news map, based on todays date
$OutPutPath = "C:\PowerBIReportsBackup\" + $TodaysDate
#Now loop through the workspaces, hence the ForEach
ForEach($Workspace in $PBIWorkspace)
#For all workspaces there is a new Folder destination: Outputpath + Workspacename
$Folder = $OutPutPath + "\" + $
#If the folder doens't exists, it will be created.

#At this point, there is a folder structure with a folder for all your workspaces
#Collect all (or one) of the reports from one or all workspaces
$PBIReports = Get-PowerBIReport -WorkspaceId $Workspace.Id # Collect all reports from the workspace we selected.
#$PBIReports = Get-PowerBIReport -WorkspaceId $Workspace.Id -Name "My Report Name" # Use the -Name parameter to limit to one report
#Now loop through these reports:
ForEach($Report in $PBIReports)
#Your PowerShell comandline will say Downloading Workspacename Reportname
Write-Host "Downloading "$":" $
#The final collection including folder structure + file name is created.
$OutputFile = $OutPutPath + "\" + $ + "\" + $ + ".pbix"
# If the file exists, delete it first; otherwise, the Export-PowerBIReport will fail.
