  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Copy or Export Show Data Visual

    Would like the ability to copy/paste or export from Show Data visual behind maps, graphs, etc. Nice to see in table format, but frustrating you can't get it into Excel.

  6. 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

  7. Have different display options for empty visuals!!

    It would be great to have formatting options for when a visualization (card, multi-row card, etc.) does not show data. Instead of saying "BLANK", you can put any desired text or a number like "0". Without having to create an unnecessary measures for each card on the dashboard.
    It is a problem when you have many cards and you have to create so many measures just so that it does not say "BLANK" when there is no data to show.

  8. Add Engineering Drawings to GeoVisual for Location Specific Data

    It would be beneficial for a manufacturing environment if there was a way to have an interactive drawing of a module assembly that could be used to view subassembly data. If it is used for a defect reduction sense, you could use conditional formatting to highlight components of interest and create a relationship to the location with hard data to drive down to root cause.

  9. Improve Bullet Chart to Work with Reverse Data

    The bullet chart works great when values go from very good to needs improvement in high to low values respectively. But it does not work when values are in reverse order with very good to needs improvements going from low to high. This is needed in order to switch between variables when very good is either high or low comparatively.

  10. floor plan that shows heatmap with time slider

    Most of the problem is solved by "Synoptic Panel by OKViz". But there is not option to play heatmap that changes as per time and traffic column.

  11. 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…

  13. 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 :)

  14. WordCloud

    WordCloud 1.7.1 -- When you have "Too many values. Not showing all data." The Data Colors format category is not available. When too many values are present, the "Default Color" option needs to remain available for formatting.

  20. 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.
