  1. Add the ability to set the base on a log scale Y-axis.

    On the Y-axis on the line chart when Log scale is selected Power BI only uses base 10. It would be good to be able to set the base. Excel has this ability.

  2. Wave Chart

    There should be a custom visual similar to "The Forrester Wave" in Power BI.
    Its an amazing visual and the link of report is also given in Microsoft Power BI website.

  3. Hide the report page based on the user.

    Hiding the pages while sharing the report is an important option.

    E.g. If i am developing a report for 10 metrics and which I dont want some metrics owners can see other metrics. So if we have any option to select the page and hide/unhide. It will avoid the irrelevant page for the irrelevant user in the group.

  4. Enable setting the background of search box in slicer

    When the theme is black, the user can not use the search function in slicer, because the text user input and background are both black.
    Please enable the setting for the background of search box in slicer.
    Thanks.

  5. Autofit tooltip window

    I would like to be able to choose my tooltip window to autofit option. When the tooltip values are shown sometimes are too large or too small.

  6. Conditional formatting for column, line and marker shape in combo chart

    Make it possible to have conditional formatting for both columns and lines (as well as marker shape) in combo chart.
    Would make it easier to track whether the value is good or bad.

  7. Plotly package support with Python

    I've really learned to enjoy the flexibility of the Plotly chart package. As a Python programmer it would be great to extend the Python support within Power BI to also include this powerful package.

  8. My report comes to me with percentages. Why can't there be an option to insert the actual number or percentage into the visual?

    To be able to use the ACTUAL number or PERCENTAGE from my report into a visual without having to have to create a Measure. My data is already broke down when I rec'd it. And creating visuals would be much easier and quicker if this was an option!! :-)

  9. Actually look at this list and implement ANY of the ideas!

    My idea would be for Microsoft to actually implement ideas from this list instead of simply ignoring them! I don't believe anyone from MS actually looks at what is posted here... especially anything related to dates, timelines and milestones.

    You know, things that you might want to report on during say, a Global Pandemic.

  11. Add Venn2 and Venn3 python modules to PowerBI service

    Currently, the set of python modules supported by PowerBI service is quite small. I would personally be delighted to see matplotlib-venn to be added to the list so we can make some nice Venn diagrams that scale to group size. (The MAQ custom visual doesnt scale in size).

  12. Treemap Conditional Formatting based on any field

    I would like an option to add conditional color formatting to the Values field in the Treemap. For example maybe my sales value was $15,000 but it was -15% compared to last year so I want this box to be red.

  13. Data Label for Shape Maps

    It would be nice if the data labels are shown in custom shape maps, so that you don't have to hover over the map.

  17. Interactive Python Visuals

    I know Python Visuals have just been supported for Power BI, but lets get the ball rolling on this one.

    Please support Visual Interactions with Python Visuals.

  18. Filled Map Heat Map

    Title pretty much says it all... I would like the capabilities to have heat mapping using the filled map. Should work with any polygon type e.g. county,city,state... etc.

    Example: Zip Code "A" polygon with "10" Count and Zip Code "B" polygon with 100 Count

    I would like the Zip Code "B" polygon completely filled but darker in color (if using only one color e.g. Light Green to Dark Green using a gradient) and Zip Code "A" polygon also filled but in a lighter color

  19. Anchor Matrix Totals so they don't move

    When the number of rows in a matrix reduces due to filtering, drill-up, the total row moves up and then back down as the number of rows increase again. I would like to be able to anchor the total row to the bottom of the matrix so that it doesn't move. Reason for this ? It is dizzying for a user to see things move up/down/sideways, and even though we can turn off auto-size of column headers, we cannot control movement of the totals row.
