  1. Ability to change transparency of color under stacked area chart line

    At the moment, the area under a line in a stacked area chart uses the color of the line but presents it with a level of transparency. This means that the fill color doesn't match to the color presented in the key. Ideally, it would be good to be able to customize the level of transparency of the fill color.

  2. Display time in HH: mm: ss format in columns and bars charts

    We need to display time fields in the format (HH: mm: ss), in the stacked column chart / stacked bar chart.

    Explanation:

    We now convert the time to decimal to generate the graph.
    Example:

    01:30:00 (hh: mm: ss) = 1.5 (decimal)

    In bar charts, the value property (FIELDS - VALUE option) will be 1.5

    By activating the display data property (FORMAT - DATA-LABELS), the displayed value is 1.5.

    Instead we need to display the data 01:30:00 (hh: mm: ss) DATA-LABELS.

    Suggestion:

    Possibility to indicate which field to display in DATA-LABELS.

    Hour_decimal (VALUE) = Hour (HH: mm: ss) display this field

  3. About Custom Visual "Violin Plot"

    The data you set up can not be displayed properly when using the Violin Plot.
    Once it shifts to the focus mode and returns to the report screen, it will be displayed normally.
    It is more likely to occur as the amount of data is large, so please modify

    Also, please implement commonly used custom visuals as default visuals.

  4. conditional formatting

    Conditional formatting for matrix and tables headers

    To have context dependant row & column headers background

  6. Chiclet Slicer: add ability to create individual color for each chiclet

    Currently we can change the background color for all chiclets in the group; however, we cannot set each individual chiclet in the group to a specific color. For example, if I want chiclet #1 to be red, #2 to be green, #3 to be blue, etc.

  9. Allow for dynamic update of report title when drilling down through hierarchy

    When drilling down on chart visuals, the title of the chart should change to reflect the hierarchy. For example chart top level is based on "Product Line", the title of the chart should reflect "Product Line". When the user drills down to the next level "Country", the title should update to reflect "Country". The builder of the report would need to specify the chart title update for each level of the hierarchy. This would give the end user of the report, a sense of clarity to what the chart is actually showing, each time they drill down.

  11. Dynamic source column in slicer based upon selected value in another slicer

    Hellos

    This may be a copy of this:
    https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/36086665-dynamic-column-creation-on-basis-of-slicer-selecti
    but I am not quite sure.

    What I am trying to do is change the source column of a slicer based upon the selection in another slicer.

    For example, I have a table with the following columns:

    Col1

    Col2

    Col3

    I have two slicers, Slicer One & Slicer Two.

    Slicer One contains the values Col1, Col2, Col3. Slicer Two contains dynamically variable values.

    When I select one of these values from Slicer One (say, Col2), the source column of Slicer Two then becomes Col2.

    If I then select Col3 from Slicer…

  12. Grouping and sorting Visualisations

    So if you are like me and import lots of visualisations from the marketplace, I would find it extremely helpful to be able to group like ones together or also create custom groups e.g "Time Series" and add a series of visualisations to that group

  14. Likert data as Gantt percents

    Likert data type now tends to be displayed in graphs with Gantt percentages. Need this option in Power BI. It is especially strange that we don't have it, as Microsoft Forms displays results in such graphs... Come on MS, it seems you need some experience exchange between departments...

    The question, where the answer says it is impossible to do.

  15. Allow visual title background border radius

    While we can apply a radius to a visual border, would also be good to be able to apply a radius to the title background for easthetic purposes - currently have rounded corners on visual with rectangular title backgrounds within.

  16. Create a forest plot Visual

    Create a forest plot visual which is used very commonly in meta analysis of clinical trials

    It is linked very closely to trading chart visual so should be easy to generate.

    For the forest plot you need a low value and high value and a mean. Then you need some by value eg by study. This would be equivalent to date but needs to be flexible to choose any form of by variable.

    The open and close can be just the mean. The mean needs to be generally a dot. Sometimes the size of the dot can be related to…

  19. Conditional Formatting for Total and Subtotals in Matrices

    The recent addition of conditional formatting for values is wonderful. However, it would be great to have the ability format subtotals and totals, as the variation on those fields are often even more important to draw attention to.
