  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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Titles should be visible on mobile platform (without need to tap the visual)

            Using the mobile solution is brilliant, however forcing users to click every single visual to get the title is a huge design flaw that should be fixed asap.

            • Mobile Screen Area Height Too Small

              Would like to see an unlimited height in the mobile view so we can fit all of our visualizations. Right now your limited in the number of rows available for adding visualizations.

              • Export data to Excel on Power Bi App (iPad)

                To be able to export Excel data from tables and visualisations on an iPad. You are able to do this from a desktop web browser, but not from the mobile app. We push reports to over 200 users that access Power Bi on an iPad - this feature will be most helpful.

                • 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.

                  • Push notification to all users subscribed to Report

                    Push Notifications to all users subscribed to the report indicate the Data set has been refreshed and the report has new data. (This is especially useful for use cases where you don't have streaming Data)

                    Also scheduled push notification reminding a set off users to see the report.

                    • Ability to change visualiztion colors in mobile view

                      Often when designing mobile pages, it makes sense to change the color theme on the mobile view, to be slightly different from the desktop. That way making things easier to read on a smaller screen.

                      It would therefore be great to have the ability, when in mobile view, to change visualization and shape colors, to be different from the desktop view.

                      • Mobile app dashboards list - wrap text

                        We have a lot of dashboards which start with the same text as required by our Executive team which makes the dashboard and report names longer than what can be displayed in the mobile apps (iPhone, iPad, Surface Hub TV). Please consider wrapping the text or at least make the dashboard list tiles wider for iPad and Surface Hub TV. This is a major usability issue for our organization.

                        • Greater customisation for mobile views - Snap-to Grid and Font Size

                          Currently mobile view offers very little in the way of customisation options. I would like to see the following:

                          An option to change the size of the snap-to grid in the mobile view

                          Option to change font sizes for tiles/visualisations in mobile view

                          • SAML based SSO for SSRS 2016 Mobile reporting in Power BI app

                            It would be beneficial in many scenarios to be able to configure SAML based SSO (Single Sign On) for SSRS Mobile reports in Power BI app, as there might be cases where the SSRS Mobile reports are hosted on premises that use SAML based SSO.

                                • Deep linking to SSRS Mobile reports in Power BI app

                                  At the moment, you can create a deep link to a Power BI report on Power BI services to be used in other apps. By doing so, it will launch the Power BI app on a mobile device and load the linked report.

                                  However, at the moment, you can't use the same approach to load an SSRS Mobile report in the Power BI app.

                                  Can a similar capability be added to deep link SSRS Mobile reports too?

                                      there must be a way to disable share and annotate option on PBI mobile. the thumbnail may contain private information that once shared may become public. this is a security issue.

                                      • Make more visuals available in the Apple Watch app

                                        Right now only the Card and KPI visuals can be synchronised to an Apple Watch from a dashboard. It looks like there have been no or minimal updates to this functionality since its release in March 2016.

                                        Including more visuals and tiles would make the Apple Watch app more useful, and would make it easier to use existing dashboards on the Watch, rather than having to design bespoke dashboards (in our business we don't use the Card or KPI very often.)

                                        Support for any or all of the following would be fantastic:

                                        - Text boxes
                                        - Images
                                        - Funnels
                                        -…
