  1. Custom icons instead of bubbles

    It will be great if you will add opportunity to make different type of icons on the map with different type of customers on the map. I'm working with Sales Force and there we have different type of the customers. So on the map will be good to see them not only by colors, but also by different icons.
    Many thanks!

  3. We need the ability to create scatter plots charts with lines instead of dots. Connect the dots!! The line chart axis options don't work

    We use the scatter plot line option in Excel, we would like to see the same option in PBI Desktop. Currently the Desktop only displays the scatter plot using dots, we would like the same function but using a line instead of dots. The line chart visualization doesn't allow for plotting separate value columns as axis as the scatter plot option does.

  4. Constant trend line as a measure

    There is often a need for constant x-axis line or y-axis line which is not average or median, or anything else.

    Rather it is a constant which depends on the slicer applied.

    This is usually the case if I calculated weighted averages, and want to divide my scatter chart ot 4 quadrants. Average trend lines deviate from my weighted average and that is a problem.

    So, Idea is to be possible to put a measure in constant x-axis/y-axis trend line. So either typing the value or putting measure in, would be a nice option.

    What do you think?

  5. Multiple Custom Shapes on Maps

    When working on a Map visualization that have multiple layers, we need the ability to import multiple custom shapes on top of the map. Unfortunately the map visualization only support a single custom shape. So it would be great if we can import multiple shapefiles into a Map to see all the different layers.

  7. Exporting Table visual to Excel

    When one export a "Date Column" of the Table visual to excel, it populates in CSV format and and "Date" format changes to "Date time" Format, which should not happen.
    Format of Date should remains same while exporting the data from the table visual to excel

  8. Format count values with comma

    When graphing a categorical/text field in a bar chart and displaying the count, allow the number to be displayed with a comma. Because the underlying field is text, the solution is not to change the format of the field.

  12. Auto size and space tables

    I'd like to see tables/matrices (or other visuals for that matter) auto size, as well as the position of a table being able to be locked to the bottom of another table. That way if you have 2 tables, one below the other, the second table will always appear in the same relative position (i.e. at the bottom of the first, no matter how big the table).

  14. Set data colors programmatically in power desktop

    It should be possible to set the data colors of all common fields in different charts and pages of the report to the same color without changing each color of each chart manually which takes time. It would be great if these defaults could be set programmatically and use hex codes from a table and then assign them to their relevant fields across all visuals.

  15. Google Maps widget

    We do need an customizable, interactive, "drilldownable" Google maps widget (the default Bing map-widget is not close to having required options, limited maps ++).

    Has anyone developed Google Maps widgets?

  17. Matrix column headers word wrap

    Implement column headers word wrap as already available for Tables.

    This allows to save space when implementing report pages with several Matrix visuals (Pivot Tables).

  18. Slicer Select All vs Select None

    Would be nice if when select all is enabled on a slicer that when you choose select all it shows everything in associated visualizations BUT when you de-select all the associated visualizations show nothing. At present either option shows everything.

  19. Option to Import all custom visuals at once

    Now we need to import one by one..It might be helpful if we can select more than one visuals at a time and import the same.

  20. More granular map zoom control and ability to set default zoom

    I tried searching the forums and haven't found a solution yet so I have 2 ideas to improve Filled Maps and Map visuals.


    1. More granular zoom control to increase precision of the view we are trying to display.

    When I zoom on the US I have to have the visual show 1/2 of Canada down to Mexico/Cuba to show the whole lower 48 states. The next zoom level in starts to cut off Texas, Florida, and Maine.



    1. Ability to set a default view with button.

    This goes along with #1 as I would like to set a precise zoom level…
