  1. Timeline slicer - Handle Fiscal vs Calendar Date Mapping

    The whole Fiscal Year/Quarter concept doesn't seem to be fulfilled because the "Fiscal Year Start" option only sets the year start month but the Fiscal vs Calendar date mapping isn't really implemented.

    For example, Fiscal Year 2019 should be start from Calendar Date April 2018 up till March 2019.
    Calendar Date - Fiscal Y - Fiscal Q
    April 2018 - 2019 - Q1
    May 2018 - 2019 - Q1
    June 2018 - 2019 - Q1
    July 2018 - 2019 - Q2
    Aug 2018 - 2019 - Q2
    Sept 2018 - 2019 - Q2

  2. Data Label for Shape Maps

    It would be nice if the data labels are shown in custom shape maps, so that you don't have to hover over the map.

  4. Add "Download Sample" in Marketplace Power BI Visuals window

    It would be useful to be able to download custom visual sample file directly from Marketplace Power BI Visuals window.

  5. Create a slicer for one specific visualization easily

    Currently if I want to make a slicer for one specific visualization, I need to make a slicer and undo interactions with every other visualization on the page. I would like to be able to right click on my visualization and make a slicer just for it, without the slicer automatically filtering every other visualization.

  6. Calculo diferente para subtotais e totais

    em inúmeras situações é necessário realizar cálculos diferentes para as linhas de totais e subtotais, porém, nos visuais de tabela e matriz tabela, hoje isso não é possível, esta seria uma modificação muito bem vinda ao power bi, esta funcionalidade existe em outras ferramentas e extremamente útil, além de simplificar a criação de visualizações.

  7. Formatação condicional para subtotais e totais em visuais de tabela e matriz tabela

    Por favor, vocês poderiam adicionar a funcionalidade de formatação condicional nas linhas de subtotais e totais nos visuais de tabela e matriz tabela. Esta funcionalidade poderia herdar a configuração do campo onde foi aplicada a configuração, mas também poderia permitir a realização de uma configuração específica para as linhas de subtotais e totais.

  8. 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)

  9. Add Body Part Human Model Visual

    Hello all. I work in Health Care, and when i work with some data it would be great to have some body parts visuals. For instance, when im working data about bruises, i would like to have like a human model and the location of the bruise with some data next to it.  Its just an idea, that some people in Health Care areas might have as well. If someone could create this it would be fantastic.

    Thank you for your time

    John O.

  11. Vertical Column Headers in Matrix

    Make possible to rotate the column header so that they appear vertical. It's very usefull for the case that I have a number of columns and the names of each column is a rather long text, hence it makes the matrix's width large even though the actual cells just hold a number. Format-wise, it can be much more pleasant if the column heades could have appeared vertically to save space rather than the default horizontal.

  12. fixed zoom in ArcGis maps

    It would be nice to have the toogle that can be found unfer regular maps to fix the zoom also under ArcGis maps.

    As the functionality should work the same, I assume it shouldn´t take that long to implement

  13. Latest date as anchor date for relative date slicer

    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.

  14. Add multiple data labels to bar chart.

    I would like to add a percentage as well as the data value to a bar chart, especially when comparing Actual to Budget. I am creating a bar chart with the past 12 months of data, and would like to be able to add the percent of budget to the bar along with the current value.

  16. Horizontal Tornado Chart

    People in our organization seem to like presenting two metrics for the same x-axis values, one as a positive value and one as a negative value, where the sign for the metric appearing as a negative value should be ignored. This approach is used to compare the absolute value of each metric easily.

    The tornado chart is a better visual to do this comparative analysis, but one is forced to present the tornado chart axis vertically. So, I'd hope at some point to see orientation options for the current tornado chart visual (current is vertical/portrait, looking for horizontal/landscape).

    After I…

  17. Conditional formatting

    Hi, I use a lot of conditional formatting and thought hat it would be interesting to have it for different Kinds of Graphs like stacked, clustered etc. For example, I have two measures in a bar Chart, one showing Budget and the other showing actual cost. WHen Actual cost crosses Budget, I would like the actual cost bar to be red. This is not possible for many Kinds of Graphs right now. I would love to see this in Power BI :)

  18. Conditional Formatting using row and column context.

    Hello, the conditional format for tables and matrix analysis all data in the table/matrix context and applies the colors in this context.
    sometimes, we need to compare the values with row or column context. is it possible?
    Regards!

  19. 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.

  20. Auto resize columns to fill visual

    There should be an option to automatically resize table and matrix columns so their width would fill the entire visual space.
