  1. This is a very clunky ill-thought out sight. Smart data was easy and user friendly. The font is tiny and difficult to read - even with full

    This site is very clunky. font is cramped and data poorly set out. waste of money - Smart data was user-friendly. Teachers have a huge workload - this just makes it harder and more frustrating.

  3. Table value text linked to URL

    Currently table value URLs must be shown with all the http://xyz details etc.
    Can we please have table values that LINK to a URL in some specific column so that when the value is clicked, it activates the URL.
    I do not want my customers to see the URL, only the table values.

  4. Slicer with underlying URL

    A slicer that also works with URLs so that when clicked :
    - will slice other visuals
    - will open up a web page
    In this way, the user can create linked slicers that cross filter as well as navigate to completely different web objects.

  5. Sales Performance Funnel

    I know a lot of people would LOVE a funnel visualization where the relative value of each sales or pipeline phase is encoded by the HEIGHT rather than the width. This would allow for the sides of the funnel to have a constant slope, giving the viz a more "funnel-like" shape. I was able to create one in R pretty easily. I wrote a for loop that calls the polygon function to build and stack trapezoids where the heights of the trapezoids are determined by the relative sales value of each section. The width of each trapezoid is a function…

  7. Waterfall chart should have option to remove Total

    Sometimes, it is not necessary to keep total at the end of waterfall chart. It should be customizable to keep total or not in the visual.

  10. 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.

  13. hide legend if empty

    If a legend contains no data, it would be useful to have the option to not show it, and if data is added it will automatically show.

  14. Control to Toggle Map Category Labels On/Off

    Could we have a visual means of toggling map labels, like a Slicer or Button, for high level users who are not comfortable with the built-in controls?
    When plotting more than a handful of points on a map, the Category Labels obscure the points, making it useless; once users select a few dots, however, labels become useful. For now I will use a "two map solution."

  15. Move up values field on column matrix

    Matrix currently doesn't allow you to sort the columns based on designating values as being a priority above the column field names

    I want to put the values above the column header. In the first row (of the column headers) the measures I've created, then all the months for each measure. In this moment I have first the months and the measures for each month separately.

  17. ability to edit text position in card

    The position of the text in the card cannot be changed. If the text that we want to place in the card is long, then it will be on one line, and therefore we have to increase the length of the card itself. I would like to be able to distribute the text evenly throughout the card, and not just in length.

  18. Synchronize drill up/down of visualizations

    I use the drill up/drill down hierarchy feature in almost all of my visualizations. However, when you have several visualizations, it becomes hassle to have to individually drill up/down on each one.

    For example, if I have 3 different line graphs plotted over time, if I drill from yearly to quarterly, I would want all 3 to toggle in unison.

  19. Write Back capability

    It would be helpful if we can have an input box and once we click on submit button the values in the input box should be written to a Target database (it can be SQL server, Excel or any other system).
