  1. New functionality "Sync Slicers" in Custom Visual visualizations.

    I tested the "Sync Slicers" new functionality and it's a very good option but it doesn't work with a Custom Visual, for example, Chiclet Slicer. Chiclet Slicer is a Custom Visual visualizations widely used and it will be very important that this new functionality work in it well.

    • Export Power BI visual matrix to Excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

      I want a way to export a visual matrix (already assembled in my Power BI report) and take it to excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

      • Rename Totals

        Please allow users to rename totals in the Table and Matrix visual. This is a very important feature to be able to label what the total means for a specific report (e.g. Month Actual adding up to YTD Actual) rather than simply "total". For the time being the only solution is to put a text box over to which goes away in focus mode, etc. Thank you!

        • Totals in stacked column charts

          During several presentations I get questions regarding the total of stacked columns. In the current situation you can select to label all the parts of the stacked column but no grand total. I would like to see the option to add a label to the Visuals which shows the total of the stacked column (this counts for values only). Ideally this total would deviate together with the drilldowns you select, so it stays interactive whatever filters you select or subsets you create on your dashboard.

          • Axis inversion

            There should be a field button for inverting the axis. For example, instead of the Y-axis moving upwards from 0 to 100 it should be able to flip and start at 100 and move upwards to 0.

            • Flexible Drilldown

              Ability to create a not hierarchy drill down, that you can choose which dimension you want to detail the selected item. Eg. You have sales by state, so you can choose if you want to detail some state by product type or by store, or even choose if you want to see all your data by product type and so detail some type by state or store.

              Also, create some navigation map, to show what drilldowns was already been aplied.

              • Interactive Python Visuals

                I know Python Visuals have just been supported for Power BI, but lets get the ball rolling on this one.

                Please support Visual Interactions with Python Visuals.

                • Stacked Cluster Chart custom visual

                  To introduce a Stacked Cluster Chart custom visual combining column and stacked column charts to show side by side this and last year stacked values.

                  Business Case:

                  1/ Tracking monthly YTD sales and opportunities (in a stacked column) against This Year Annual Plan Sales (as a straight line).
                  2/ Comparing monthly YTD sales and opportunities (in a stacked column) to the corresponding YTD sales and opportunity last year (in a stacked column aside to a stacked sales & opportunity column of this month) and Last Year Annual Plan Sales (as a straight line).

                  • Ability to turn off data labels (K/M/B) when scaling values in table/matrix

                    My whole report is mostly in millions, so it is redundant to have every cell in a table show an "M" behind the value. (e.g. "5M"). Gives the end user too much to process. I can create an additional measure which divides the current one by 1 million, but since I have a lot of measures, I don't want to pollute my data model with so many double measures and confuse other people using the same data model.

                    • Table Slicer!

                      The standard/built in Slicer allows you to only have one field. It would be great to have a table slicer that can display many fields. When you click on a row in the table slicer, it would filter the by one field that you nominate in the visualisation properties pane.

                      The benefit of a table slicer is to be able to display additional information that may be useful for the user to know before they apply the filter.

                      A simple example - If I wanted a slicer to select one or more Employees, it would need to be based on…

                        • Export Theme as JSON file

                          Once you have created a report, and taken many hours to manually formatted colors, fonts, grids, charts, cards and other visuals, allow for those settings to be exported as a theme (JSON file) that you can use use it in other reports.

                            Avatar, Alaeddin

                            I hope that you add the ability to add a measure as the anchor date for relative date slicer, it'd be really useful if you wanna set the anchor date as the latest date of your data which can change overtime.

                            • Breakdown or Weighted Tree

                              I was wondering one of a very important visuals missing from Power BI gallery is Breakdown or dependencies tree,
                              this will help us to design a good view and give us more room for other visuals to add in our dashboard.

                                • Can we please have a line graph with a dedicated TARGET field

                                  We desperately need a line graph with a dedicated "TARGET" field that is separate from the "value" field. As it currently stands, the current line graph does not let you put in a legend if I use more than one (1) field (i.e. a measure and a target) in the value field.

                                        • Enable more data label options instead of % on 100% Stacked Column Chart

                                          100% Stacked Column Chart only shows data labels in %. Please, enable more options (None, Millions, billions, thousands, etc.) for data labels.

                                          Sometimes we want to compare the amounts on each column, but not compare each column using the 100% Stacked Column Chart. It limits us by allowing only data labels in percentage.
