  1. Stacked visual elements for mobile phone view

    Phone portrait layouts are created from visual elements created for the desktop report page view. However, elements can be stacked on the desktop and the z-order can be adjusted. Apparently elements cannot be stacked when creating the phone portrait view. Some might consider this a bug since these composites are a visual on the report page that cannot be used on the phone.

    We often use a graphic object to draw a frame around other objects and give a title to the group. We are searching for an alternative for the phone view.

    Microsoft, please consider this important enhancement to…

  2. Use internal scanner of Mobile Scanning Device to open a filtered report

    It would be great if we could use the scanner of our devices in stead of the camera to scan barcodes in the PowerBI Mobile app.

  3. Make Graphs Zoomable

    Hi there.

    I love Power BI on my iPhone 10 XS, but I cannot zoom in or out of the graphs I make. They are often too big to fit into the screen, so I can't see the who graph, or the text is too small and I cant zoom in to read it. Look at Instagram as an example of how I'd like graphs to work - use two fingers to zoom in to see the details, or two fingers to zoom out to see the big picture. That would make presentations on mobile devices 10x better.

  4. Integrating Machine Learning into Game Development

    Game development is one very complex process which comprises the sport environments, the plot, the features of every character, among others. No doubt, the method is labor-intensive and sometimes, incurs an important cost. However, when it's executed properly, the results are astronomical. as an example, the fusion of computer game and game development yielded online game Go, the gaming sensation which raked in 200 million within the first month.

    Virtual Reality is an exciting sphere, however, scientists predict that the influence of AI will prove far more rewarding. Before we explore the likelihood of success, it's important to urge a…

  5. Share from iPhone

    We can’t share the reports we create and own from the app. Making the presence of our laptops mandatory when out of office.

    It used to be possible, but the function has been removed for apparently no reason.

  6. Mobile view trend line graphs

    In mobile view, line charts default to showing the leftmost, earliest data on the x-axis. The more meaningful data to most is the recent data on the graph. Users have to scroll right each time to see most recent data. Could the default be set thus for date/time driven x-axes? Or allow a default setting.
    Also agreeing with another idea that if you have multiple line charts, they should scroll as a group.

    Another good idea out here that I upvoted is the ability for mobile views to condense the x-axis for a better fit.

  7. Make automatic refresh optional when scrolling down power bi mobile

    Very frequently when the user scroll down in power bi mobile, there is a data refresh taking place. This is really annoying for the user that just want to consume the app.

  8. Mobile Version shouldn't translate K to MIL. It's misleading

    My clients are from USA/India. I'm from Argentina. I work my PBI for the numbers to show as K (thousands). But Mobile version, which I use for the Full Screen functionality only which is not included in the main software, translates the K to MIL, which in English means Millions. This is highly misleading to me and my clients. I'm unable to use Mobile due to this.
    And of course, I cannot change that from any options sections.
    DISASTROUS fail on design

  9. Improve dpi scaling?

    Improve dpi scaling? Items too small on screen, can't read it on a 13inch laptop. Zooming in to read pushes content off screen.

  10. Function/method/attribute to detect whether a report is being displayed in mobile or in desktop

    I want to alter visual attributes depending on whether a report is being consumed in phone-optimized layout, or in a browser mode. E.g. changing font color or visual title/category for a better fit or more background contrast. Being able to return display device as browser-or-phone through a measure enables using that measure in conditional formatting.

  11. Support App navigation in the mobile app

    Power BI apps have a robust new way to build custom navigation. The Power BI mobile app can access Power BI apps, but it does not see or respect the navigation that is a part of the Power BI app, only select reports and dashboards in a somewhat cumbersome way. The mobile app needs to support Power BI app navigation.

  13. Retain Filter selection in iPAD after clicking the refresh button in the page. Currently this is possible in Power BI service

    Hello,
    If I select any filter and drag the page little bit, the page get refreshed and all the filter selections get changed to the default one. Retaining filter while refreshing the page in ipad would be very helpful like the way it is currently in the Power BI service. Incase we would like to change the filter selection to the default one, we should have "Reset to default" option like the one we have in Power BI service.

  15. allow mobile version has its own settings which may differ from desktop

    the design of mobile and pc can be very different but now we have to compromise considering the visules' settings have to be the same. It would be greate if allow user to specify different setting for mobile version.

  16. Enhanced navigation control for mobile app

    After experimenting with the mobile app to solve navigation concerns to seamlessly move from a dashboard to specific reports and back to the dashboard, it would be great to be able to assign button actions to in-app content.

    For example, a back button that would lead you directly to the app landing page (in-app and not in a browser tab), and buttons that are interactive when a live page is pinned instead of leading you to the report where you can THEN trigger the action.

    I have used the app url to try to reach the landing page, but you…

  17. More Card visuals with multiple formatting options that are compact for Mobile App

    Please can we get more Card Visuals that are designed for the mobile app. The Multi-row card is not visually appealing on the Mobile App and does not allow for customization.

  18. Push Refresh Notifications in Mobile App

    Currently, the only subscription notification available for when a report has been refreshed is through e-mail. Our executives have requested push notifications through the mobile app of when reports have been refreshed. This would be a useful feature, as many of our upper-level leadership only access reports through mobile.
