  1. The ability to change the data shown in 'See Records' some data making up visualizations should not be seen by client.

    Data making up a visualization could be sensitive information or a formula and is necessary to produce a graph or table , but should not be seen by a client. Currently there is no way to customize 'See Records'. This is the most important function we use in Power BI and makes reports look messy and at times unusable.

  2. Small Multiple Line Chart with Auto-Adjusting Y-Axis

    Trying to show growth in similar groups of people but with vastly different sizes means that showing them on the same line chart tends to hide trends in groups with smaller numbers. There is a custom visual Small Multiple Line Chart which starts to address this by being able to split one chart into several by a specific factor, such as Country, but the Y-axis is static across all of the small multiples so the problem persists where, say, a country with a small population will have an almost flat meaningless trend line if it's in the same dataset as…

  3. Gantt chart conditional formatting

    It would be great if gantt charts have the possibility of using conditional formatting, more advanced, because the gantt charts are very basics, and you can't do a lot of things.

  4. multi-row card visibility

    To support dynamic numbers of multi-row cards, it would be helpful to be able to have visual not show upon a filter similar to other visualizations.

    Ex: For the selected Area, if I set the filter of Region is not blank, visualization does not appear.

  5. Drag and Drop - Custom Visuals too slow

    Is it possible to improve de speed of drag and drop of custom visuals? Comparing the performance of Simple Card and Advanced Card, the custom visual is too slow. Futhermore, is not possible to copy and past format (pencil button).

  8. Keep selected rows selected when a table visual is hidden

    Actually a table can be used as a slicer and it works while the table is visible. But I can't put in on a custom filter panel (a group of visuals with hide and show buttons based on bookmarks). Once hidden a table loses row(s) selection.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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. :/

  20. 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.
