  1. Ability to sort source/destinations column items labels in sankey and chord diagrams

    Can't currently sort the source or destination column items in sankey and chord diagrams. E.g. an alphabetical sort would seem to be an obvious default, yet the current sorting sequence is strange, seemingly arbitrary, and not useful.

  2. Microsoft could buy Zebra BI visual solutions and integrate into the platform

    Microsoft could buy Zebra BI visual solutions and integrate into the platform. Their visuals are of a higher quality and flexibility. When acquiring a visualization tool like Power BI, that is what is expected.

  3. Refernence Graph for another graph

    There should be an option to create a reference graph for another graph displaying the same information, but following the same pattern of reference graph. Many a times we have a scenario where users want to compare one graph values with reference to another graph following the same pattern of reference graph.

  4. Visuals name from Publish Power BI reports and dashboards

    If we can know the Visual's name from Publish Power BI reports and dashboards,It will come handy to people who wish to use the same visuals for their report. Currently the visual names are not displayed in the published report.

  6. A visual that is better at displaying qualitative data such as survey feedback?

    Something like the credits at the end of a movie, either rolling or still with the option of showing the last n answers.

  7. bar chart color by field value in legend

    Allow using a field with the color in Hexadecimal or Name of the color when a field of the same dimension is being used as Legend in Bar Charts, stacked bars and the others, as used in Tables and Pivot Tables.

    Make this configuration possible using the Conditional Formatting feature with field values.

  9. Option to make the outer circle thinner in Microsoft sunburst chart

    Sunburst chart by Microsoft is a good visual to show hierarchical data as it allows to give a different color to subcategories. But it would be good to have an option to make the outer circle thinner and inner circle more prominent. Also there should be better labeling options for this chart

  10. Watermark with userprincipalname() function

    I wouldlike to create a watermark with the userprincipalname() function.

    In this way, I expect that the people that uses my report will avoid to print the report and send it to unauthorized people and avoid that a copy of my report gets into one of my competitor's hand

    I've tried to do using cards visuals but it is not possible to set transparency for the function and it is not possible to rotate it. :/

  12. Event timelines that show multiple event dates in a swimlane

    There is no way to create an event timeline with key date markers such as early registration date, registration date, event start date, even end date. etc.

    Each event would be in it's own "swimlane" and each date type should be a different color/shape.

  14. #Table Sorter Display- Data Format Variety

    Hi, thanks for the wonderful visuals!
    Is it possible if data values could be displayed in format of percentages or with accounting/currency symbols (i.e. %, $, negative numbers in accounting format), on top of the current display format? Much appreciated.

  15. Removing Custom Visuals

    Hi Team,
    The user cannot see the 'Remove' button when trying to remove a custom visual if they have 6 or more custom visuals imported into the report...

    With 6, you cannot see the 'Remove' & 'Cancel' buttons completely...

    I initially had 7/8 and could NOT see the action buttons at all. So used the [Tab] button to get my way around the display window... thankfully [Tab] is always there to help!

  17. Possible to choose start of week when filtering date in "relative" mode

    Filtering a date field: Advanced, basic, relative, top...

  19. Ability to draw borders in tables / matrices.

    Being able to draw borders myself in tables and especially matrices.

    Now one can only select vertical/horizontal grid, which will put a border around each colomn/row. I want to be able to distinguish between groups of colomns/rows instead of single ones.

  20. Embed Card in a Chart

    I have a Card visual which shows the yearly average and I place it at the right top corner of the Column chart. But when I go for full-screen mode, only the column chart is showing and not the Card visual. If there is an option to embed the Card visual as a part of the Charts, it would be much useful. Again this is something available in Excel charts. Kindly do consider.
