  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.

    • 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.

          • 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!

            • Text wrap in chart legends and detail labels for all chart types

              Currently this functionality is partially available but would be exceedingly useful for many of us if it were to also be added to the chart legends and detail labels for all chart types (including bar, column and pie charts)

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Customize what to show as legend entries

                        Even if there is no data corresponding to some legend entries, I want all the entries to appear in the legend.
                        Let’s say I’m selling PCs, mobile phones, and tablets, and I’m going to create a pie chart showing the revenue per product. When there is no revenue from tablets, there will be only two entries (PC and Mobile Phone) in the legend, but I want all the entries including Tablet in the legend.

                        • Coloring the Matrix visual based on rows or columns

                          In the current ‘Matrix’ visual, the conditional formatting happens for all the values in the standard way and we can set conditional formatting based on particular row or column value. Would love to see conditional formatting based on row or col. Something like.....if row =‘risk’ and value >100, then color the cell as red.

                              Show the last N values in a graph. For example, I have a daily chart of key performance indicators and I want to show only the last 30 days.

                              • 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.

                                • Display Tooltip over Grand Total

                                  Please allow the ability to have a tooltip appear over a grand total field in a matrix. It works fine for values and subtotal, but not for grand totals. A workaround for now is artificially creating a subtotal category, but this is cumbersome.

                                    • Export custom visuals and filters to PPT

                                      Could you please add the functionality of exporting custom visuals to PPT, along with the functionality of exporting reports with their filters.

                                      Currently we are unable to export reports with their filters, so we get a complete picture when we're only looking for a filter picture. Custom visuals do not render when exported to ppt.

                                      • Dynamic comparison charts

                                        We should get the option to compare 1 value in a column with another value dynamically selecting both the options. Tornado chart provides the option to do comarison of data but do not have any measures like percentage difference .In cases where we have mulitple filers, such calculation get complex to replicate.

                                          Can we please have the ability to add free text to individual tool tips. Eg for a particular year I might want to say that an event occurred and that's why it is low/high that year.
