  3. cancel orders with a prepaid from contract

    Is possible to cancel the orders with a prepaid from contract ( global account / project TELECOM) because this is not correct for P3 ... Is not a mistake from the inside sales but a contract from Anixter to special customer... tks. Paola - ITALY

  5. Multi-Value Gauge

    I'd like a visual that works like the current Gauge visual, but that allows me to put multiple fields in the Value. Each Value would display within the gauge in its own color. So for example, if there's $2M in Field 1 and $3M of Field 2 and a $6M maximum value, there would be $5M of $6M filled in the gauge, $2M in one color and $3M in another color. While there are many custom gauge visualizations, all of them seem overspecialized and assume very specific use cases compared to the general gauge, which does everything I need it…

  6. Add ability to line charts to snap legend to line and same color

    According to lots of best practices for good story telling, it's best to snap the legend to the end of a line and even format the legend text in the same color as the line color. Instead of only being able to choose to put the legend left, right, top or bottom I want this option to be added.

    For an example of this, see this picture: https://www.goodly.co.in/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/How-to-Add-Legends-to-the-Chart-5.png

  7. 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.

  9. Formatting

    Formatting reports with multiple visuals is a nightmare! If we could highlight multiple items at one time (Like in Access and Excel) so we can move them all at the same time, or change the font, color, Bold, underline etc. all at the same time would save so much time.

  10. 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.

  11. Conditional formatting resources implementation on charts with more than one value field.

    Adding conditional formatting option into column and line charts with two value series.

    For example: on the X axys I plotted the months and each month I have two columns, current and last year revenue. The conditional formatting higlights, by means of red color, the months that didn't get to overcome the revenue goal.

    Nowadays, Power BI supports conditional formatting only when one data serie is plotted in the chart.

  12. Commenting in PowerBi. Add commenting directly on reports and not just in the commenting section.

    Commenting is great, customers would like to see this extended onto the actual graph as a balloon comment and not just in the comment section. Directly in PowerBI and/or in Microsoft Teams

  13. Improve Select All Slicer Performance

    There are instances where we need to filter down the data set on one variable, like contract number (say it's an enterprise contract for a number of locations with different customer numbers) because we want to use this filter to find all the related customer numbers. With the limited customer number list, I want to be able to "Select All" customer numbers now showing and then unselect the contract number because I want to see all business for these customer numbers, whether each item was sold under contract or not. However, when I click to erase the contract number, the…

  14. Advanced Expanded View for Tables and Matrix visuals

    Sometimes, there is too much data on an item that a table cannot hold.
    Expanding a row within a data table is now a common pattern found across a myriad of applications.
    Here is nice feature that would improve Table or Matrix visuals when using expanding

    When we expand rows of Table or Matrix we can show some hidden details that shouldn't be visible while collapsed
    Like on the following image:

  16. Adjust the visual characteristics (font, size, color, location) for the displayed time value of the "Play" axis in a scatter plot

    When a play axis is added to a scatter plot, the time value for that dimension is displayed in large characters that cannot be styled or modified. Any bubbles around it are obscured and hard to read. If the appearance of that label could be modified, the visual would be much more usable.

  17. PowerApp with Direct Connection Need to add in Desktop not in Service

    I'm starting to use the new PowerApps with a direct connection to immediately update a table.

    the instructions are to only do this in Edit Mode in power BI Service


    I always do my reports in desktop and after the PowerApp I have lots more updates, report pages and bug fixes to do.

    If I add in Service it works, I add a customer and it immediately appears in the table next to it I've created. Click Save.


    Go back to my pbix file to continue with the project and obviously the PowerApp visual isn't there.

    I do an udate…

  18. Where to learn, in detail, visual customization for Power BI?

    A simple, obvious, and mostly useful idea for the product and the entire community is to have a place with well-crafted, detailed, and mostly targeted learning material.
    The greatest shortcoming is information about visual customization for power bi: the material available for customization learning is not well crafted, not detailed (does not meet those new to the subject), is not segmented and is not even updated. About 30 or 40 days ago I was trying to learn how to customize visuals for power bi and could not evolve into virtually anything. The material on the microsoft website shows just the…

  19. change default scroll bar position in column charts

    If you have a column chart with many time-points on the x-axis then a scroll bar appears on the bottom of the visual. Normally you order your x-axis in a way that the most recent dates appear to the right (at least in countries where you use to write from left to right). If you want to see the most recent dates, you always need to scroll to the right. (Alternatively, reorder, so that the most recent dates are on the left. However, this is counter-intuitive in many regions.) It would be great if you could configure the scroll bar…

  20. 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.
