  1. Support for report Drillthrough functionality on Power BI Mobile Apps

    The Sept 2017 release of Power BI Desktop supports Drillthrough to other reports using the right mouse click. This functionality should be supported in the mobile apps, otherwise when selecting a Drillthough report in the mobile app there is no selected context.

    • Multiselect option for mobile users

      There are at leat 3 important festures that fires with ctrl+click gesture: on slicers, on a single visual or, the most recent, on multiple visuals. The problem is that on mobile device we can not use ctrl+click gesture.
      I suggest to add a mobile app “multiple select” toggle option that switch between the single and multiple selection navigating a report.

      • Mobile device support for multi-select data points (multi cross filters)

        The multi cross filter is finally released on Feb 2018 update but limited to PC only (using ctrl + click to interact).

        My suggestions:
        - Show menu when user long-press on data points
        - Use radial menu. Put tooltip, multi-cross filter selection and other commands (possibly drill-through?) in it
        - Allow ad-hoc pinch and zoom. This will make it easier to select (touch) small-sized features. Focus mode and cross filter don't mix well

        • Power BI Mobile app for Windows 10 should support Report Server

          It's very strange why Power BI Mobile app for Windows doesn't support Power BI Report Server. Android and iOS apps have this feature.
          So now Windows phone and tablet users can't access PBIRS via the app, which is the most convenient way of using the reports.

          Please consider adding this in the nearest future.

          • Use separate background image on mobile view

            It should be able to use a separate picture or disable background image on mobileview versus desktop view. By now, the background image feature is pretty useless in mobile view. And therefore I can't use it in desktop view.

            • Ability to render mobile optimized version of reports in custom mobile applications

              It would be great if we could embed the mobile optimized version of the reports that we see in the PowerBI mobile application in a custom mobile application. Currently my company is having to create a separate report that has a mobile layout and then embed that version into a custom mobile application.

              • Azure AD B2B guest users able to open Power BI Apps in the mobile app.

                It's great that we currently have Azure AD B2B available for Power BI. However it is not possible to give external guest users access to Power BI reports / dashboards in the mobile application.

                This needs to happen before we are able to really use AAD B2B, unfortunately for now we are still stuck creating local AAD users for the external guest users.

                • mobile drilldown with forcetouch

                  drill into next level with a 2 sec touch or forcetouch.

                  or Drillthrough if defined for the control.

                  (it's not so sexy to make a drilldown today on a mobile
                  - double click for control focus
                  - select bar
                  - click "Show next level"
                  - click Back button)

                  • Bookmarking in Mobile App

                    Our Power BI users often travel to areas with bad internet connections to visit clients. The bookmarks feature would be the perfect solution for them if it was available in the mobile app and could cache the data and visuals when bookmarked.

                    • Text wrap in tables, cards, etc.! -- in dashboards and reports.

                      Word wrap in tables is working great in Power BI Desktop, but when publishing it, I can only view the first line in Power BI Mobile and Power BI web :/

                      Please update this critical feature all over you Power BI line.

                        Ability to use URL-Report filter in mobile in the same way as in the PowerBI Service.

                        • Remove default selection when sharing annotation

                          When I share annotation from Mobile app for the first time I can choose if I want to share it via Outlook/Slack/WhatsApp/etc. When I want to share next annotation the Mobile app uses selection from the first time as default.

                          So I can't share annotation via Outlook to a single person and then share next annotation via Slack for the team without resetting app settings after first share.

                          Mobile app should ask me every time how/where I want to share annotation. Or at least app should ask if I want to make chosen sharing method default.

                          Sharing annotations is a…

                          • Swipe left and right for worksheets instead of arrows (touch screen device)

                            I think that swiping left and right for worksheets would be more seamless.

                              • mobile share ignoring tenant settings

                                Mobile app should honor Tenant Settings. We have a group who is not able to share content with external users and is not able to publish to web, because the group is in the Except specific security group section for each of these. Power BI works great with these settings, however the mobile ignores them and includes an image when sharing from mobile. Need consistency between Power BI and the Power BI mobile app.

                                  • Be able to zoom when commenting reports

                                    When annotating/commenting reports on PBI mobile, one should be able to zoom in/out by pinching. The drawing line is a bit thick for the report picture - it is difficult to be a bit detailed. And text input becomes to big, even when choosing smallest font size.

                                    • on a mobile, selecting a dropdown filter should open it directly

                                      on the mobile app, selecting a filter start by selecting the object, thuser has to select a second time to activate the content of the filter.
                                      like opening a dropdown list.
                                      this behavior should be the default behavior on the mobile app.
                                      99% of the users want to filter and not select the object.

                                      • Improve slicer interaction on mobile

                                        when a slicer is selected have it pop out larger for easier selection of values. Once selections are made, it is minimized again.
