  1. 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.

  3. Allow to get rounded corners for bar/column charts

    Please allow to change the top edge of bar/column chart to round shape. This can be achieved in MS Excel and people are used to see it happen.

    Please add this feature. Thanks!

  5. able to change the size of the tooltips page

    When we use a tooltip page on the dashboard we can´t change its size, would be good if we were able to use a tooltip page larger

  6. Decomposition Tree Drillthrough

    Having the ability to drill through to detail from the decomposition tree visual that is in preview would be a great enhancement as using a matrix visual accomplishes the similar comparisons and has the ability to do so.

  7. Add Forecasting values to a tabular format

    It would be great to add a forecast results table to either the "Forecasting" or "Forecasting with ARIMA" visualizations. While we can currently see the forecasted values when mousing over the forecast line, it would be very beneficial to have those numbers in tabular format, as well. Perhaps the forecasted values can be added to the data, so that when you Export Data, the new forecasted values are included in the table.

  8. Play Mode - Speed Adjustment and Image Addition

    We are looking for a way to highlight progress over time. This is possible with the play feature of the scatter chart, but the current feature is not optimal to use, as it doesn't allow for adjusting the play speed (which is just too fast to get a good look at the data).

    It would also be nice to be able to add images to these charts.

  9. Custom Visuals built using external JS libraries doesn't work

    Importing external javascript libraries in order to build custom visuals does not work. Libraries that are registered in the global context become inaccessible at run time and this is the case for many Javascript/Node modules.

  10. Please include "Tolerance" R library in to power bi Web library support

    I have a R script visual that uses Tolerance library. The visual works well with Power BI desktop app. On publishing to web. the tolerance function is not working. I found this library is not listed in "https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/service-r-packages-support". Please include the r package.

  14. Support for Custom Date Hierarchy/Table in Timeline Slicer

    The Timeline Slicer is a great visual! Adding capability to use a date hierarchy/table would make it even better.

    My company follows a fiscal calendar that differs by a few days from a conventional calendar (e.g. fiscal weeks, months, and quarters all start on a Saturday and end on a Friday), so the Timeline Slicer doesn't work as it is. This would also allow users flexibility to define centuries, decades, hours, minutes, seconds, etc.

  15. Update R version and package version

    The version of R available to run custom visuals in PowerBI is out of date, and many of the packages available to use (including ColorSpace) are out of date as well. The current R runtime is 3.4.4, which was released in March of 2018. R version 4.0 was just released, with many associated changes. Other packages, notably colorspace, are multiple versions behind and thus missing many functions and features available in the development environment.

    It is frustrating to upload a custom visual only to find that the version of R and various R packages are out of date, and thus…

  16. Hierarchy tree not based on a root ID

    hello, it is miss an important visual that allow to show hierarchy tree org not based on child an parent ID but on levels. this is more flexible in terms of dynamicity. indeed where you want to limit the view of org in respect to the role of user is looking at report , it does not work if must be present a root ID into tree...instead a visual having categories associated to levels is more simple

  17. unable to change the values in the layer

    When using ArcGis Maps it's unable to change the values in the layer and number of layers. It'll be interresting to be able to resize layers according data visualization and to define the wanted numbers of layers. This option will alow to make ArcGis Maps customise.

  18. Show Time in the Y axis of a chart

    When using a time variable as a value of a chart, it can only be displayed as COUNT. I need it to show TIME (duration) in the Y axis in order to show which variable has more or less amount of time.

  19. treemap

    Can % of total be added as part of the 'data labels' options for treemap as it is for pie chart?

    I know it visually indicates the proportions but I would find it helpful to state the percentages as well.

  20. Enable specific security groups to be able to publish uncertified visuals

    At this point Power BI Service Administrator can only enable or block uncertified visuals to the entire organization. Being able to administratively differentiate a more capable group of Users from the less capable one would provide the right balance between security and functionality. The same functionality is already in many places. Notably, Custom visual settings\Add and use custom visuals.
