  1. Make the tiles in pinned live tiles mobile responsive

    If the live tiles are viewed in mobile without mobile version views of it, the tiles (specially those with adjustment/filter options) needed to be clicked first to be activated then clicked a second time to make the adjustments/filters. I think it's a bit counter intuitive to our mobile dashboard consumers.

  2. Add a password to the Power BI app

    We are a startup and use Power BI to enable self-service analytics, and encourage BYOD. However, we need more security than what the Power BI app provides by default. An enforceable password requirement when signing in with a corporate AD account would be a good first step.

  5. Tracking service on Power BI Mobile

    There should be some kind of tracking system (tagging) when a user shares a dashboard and who they share it too in the mobile application

    I work for a company that is highly secure on the data we let the employees see let alone outside the organization, and if we give a user access to Power BI and they download the mobile app, they can then annotate and share to anyone without us knowing.

    This is quite a flaw I think on the security side of the mobile application, and there's no visual on it, so we cant track who…

  7. The export to PowerPoint doesn't maintain the look & feel of the vizulation where there is background colors.

    When I create PowerPoint slides to show the different visualization, a lot of the formatting is lost. The PPT slides don't look at crisp as the native Power BI visuals. Some of the colors are mismatched.

  8. Selecting multiple options in a slicer

    The ability to select more than one item in a slicer is critical to our school administration so they can compare between two different academic dates. They currently can't really use the iPad version on their iPad Pros because of this limitation.

  11. Allow Pinning Cards to Mobile View Only

    I want to be able to add Cards to the Mobile View and hide them from the Web View. Currently, I can only pin and display a card to Web View and hide it from the Phone View.

    This allows me to insert graphics and cards specifically for the mobile view while leaving the Web view unaffected.

  12. Customisable "My Workspace" view on Power BI iPad App so that long dashbard names can be read

    In the iPad app, if you are in "My Workspace" in the Dashboards tab, the tiles aren't big enough to show the full name for dashboards with longer names. This isn't great for people we share dashboards with, because they have to click into the dashboard to see which one it is because they can't read the full name from the tile on the workspace page..

  13. Sharing annotations from mobile app needs a little work

    The annotation function in the mobile app is cool but a little clunky when trying to share. If you hit the wrong spot after clicking the share button you will find yourself back in the tile with all annotations gone. This is really easy to do - it took me about 4 goes the first time I tried.

    Also when shared, the control widgets (drag and close buttons) can still be seen on the emoticon annotations.

  15. Clustered Bar Chart Legend

    There is no option to Show / Hide the legend for clustered bar charts.

    In PBI Desktop there is no Legend on the chart, nor is there in PC View.

    However, in Mobile view the Legend displays.

    We should be able to either hide this or show it, and it should be consistent among views.

  16. Landscape reports on mobile transition to next page when scrolling on a table

    If a report has more than one page, and the first page of the report contains a table that is wider than the screen then attempting to scroll across on the table causes the report page to change.

    The change page with scroll should only start once the table is at its hard right edge.

  17. Chronological sort dates last to earliest in dashboard view [Mobile]

    In the actual mobile dashboards is not allowed to sort which date do I see first in the dashboard view. Most of the graphic are chronological sort by date, but you see only the first couple of months but not the last ones. It would make more sense to be able to see how are the values in the last Month/Year/Quater.

  20. open source Power BI mobile

    If the PowerBI Mobile was open sourced, we could add our own small extras while we wait for MS to add them. It's hard to sell this to management as a reporting tool when it's missing critial integration points - aka URL Schemes. It's a free app after all. What you're really selling are SSRS and PowerBI backends.
