    • Apply the same filter across multiple pages

      I have a report that requires more than one page in the mobile view. The problem is both pages should reflect the same filters. I do not expect users to select the same filters again and again; the filters should be selected on the first page and apply to all subsequent pages.

      This idea was previously posted under the heading "Make filters that can apply across all pages in a report". However, it will not longer accept votes as it is marked as completed. Is an option available to apply page level filters from the report/dashboard to subsequent pages?

        As we announced in Microsoft Data Insights Summit a few weeks ago – filters are coming to phone reports (watch the demo here – link: https://youtu.be/LJNVO9m8NEM?t=39m57s )
        This new and exciting functionality will allow you to create a report level filter in phone reports – that will be effective on all of your reports pages!

        Some more information on how to optimize your reports for phones may be found here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-desktop-create-phone-report

        Filters on phones reports are expected in the next quarter for power BI apps on iOS, Android and Windows – stay tuned to PowerBI apps upcoming releases.

        We hope will fully meet your needs.

      • Location aware dashboard filters

        Being able to automatically filter a dashboard based on gps position. A location aware dashboard filter.

        Say a company has 100 stores divided by 10 regions, each store has a region manager who weekly visits the store to monitor progress. It would be super awesome if the Power BI dashboard automatically slices the dashboard to the location of the store.

        • Slicers in Dashboard on Mobile App

          If you pin the whole page with slicers to the dashboard you can use these slicers at the dashboard in Power BI web version without opening the report.
          However, this functionality (using slicers directly at the dashboard) doesn't work on mobile devices without opening the report.
          Please add the functionality of using slicers at the dashboard also for mobile devices.

            • Create a kiosk mode for the Power BI app

              Create a kiosk mode within the Power BI mobile applications. It would display a specific report on the startup of the Power BI app, allow you to auto refresh the report on a specific interval, and alternate through slides on a specific interval.

                • Resize items

                  An iPad user expects to resize items using their fingers.

                  I can't resize my charts in the iPad. Since the iPad is smaller (al telecast the iPad mini is). Than a desktop, you need to be able to save a different size for your iPad charts than for the charts you view from your laptop.

                  • Make mobile app responsive

                    Today's mobile app works fine on large screen but once you use it on a phone elements become too small to use it without zoom on it.

                    It will be great if app screen evolves to be responsive so elements like visuals position adjust to small screens with single direction scroll and slicers popup to the entire screen

                        • Notifications on dashboard refresh

                          It would be good to gave a notification sent over email when the dashboard is getting refreshed.

                            • Email-like background data push for mobile reports

                              Knowing that Datazen has been eaten by Microsoft and Datazen's visuals and designers will be re-branded as SSRS Mobile Reports, one thing lacking with the Datazen mobile app and Power BI app is the notion of having the data pushed in the background when the app is not active or in-use. So far, the Datazen mobile app has been OK with refreshing and caching the data when the app is active, but the data should be pushed much like email is pushed. If it is not pushed, then the app should pull the data according to a setting I provide.

                                • Add filters to QR

                                  Have the ability to use QR code to scan and apply filters for reports. Example I have a report that may show sales by product for a specific customer. It also shows inventory specific to that customer and AR for the custom. If I scanned a QR code and it applied the customer filter across the reports I can then quickly do a customer specific review and email the report to the customer on a regular basis.

                                    • Offline data filtering - Mobile Reports

                                      We have facing a issue when our sales reps are out of office visinting our customers. They need filter some reports when there is no connection in some places.
                                      The offiline capabilites is already release but filter and slices feature not yet.

                                      Is there any way to make offline data filtering? SSRS?

                                      • Azure B2B collaboration : Add external user to group in Power BI

                                        Group are useful for give access to internal user. With this user find report in Web Portal and Mobile App.

                                        But with external users we can only "Share" report which don't appear in user account. It's only a url.
                                        Because on this URL and not access to account, external users can't access reports with mobile App.

                                        Maybe compatibility with Azure B2B Collaboration should resolve this ?

                                        • Improve Touch interface on ipad

                                          The app for ipad is terrible to use with touch interface. Multiple pages (10+)is hard to view/turn pages.
                                          The ui on the Preview was much better to use. More swipe gestures
