  1. Visual Refresh / Reload - Progress Bar/Animation

    When Loading or refreshing data - Each Visual needs a more prominent animation or graphic that shows that it is busy. Even better if the whole visual is dulled out until loaded.

  2. Mapping Features

    Power Bi mapping visuals are falling behind what is available in Tableau. Power BI users are active on ESRI's and MapBox forums with suggestions for bug fixes and features, and despite this, neither ESRI or MapBox indicate when their visuals will be updated to accommodate these requests.

    I want to think Microsoft with Bing Maps could offer a baseline mapping visual similar to Tableau's and a subscription version for advanced mapping requirements.

    As a suggestion, the baseline version should offer;
    1. Point and Boundary layer overlay. and;
    2. Direct import of ESRI shapefile and MapBox vector files as a reference…

  4. Dynamic x and y axes options on graphs.

    Be able to switch between different options on the x and y axes. For example, we could need to display the volume or value for previous fiscal years and current fiscal year on the y axis. Instead of having many graphs to display all these different options, just have one graph for which you can switch the y axis values with a dropdown slicer.
    Alternatively you may need to display these volumes/values by country or by transaction type etc, so to be able to switch the x axis with a dropdown slicer too would be useful.

  7. Add ability to sort the words in Word Cloud visual

    Improve the Word Cloud visual by allowing the words to be sort in ascending or descending order. If you are searching for a particular word, it is very difficult to locate the word.

  8. Multi axes chart

    for the 'line and clustered column' chart & the 'line and stacked column' chart would it be very helpful to change and choose for each serie another type, such as line, column, area, spline, stacked column, stacked area and make combinations of types all together in one chart.

  9. Conditional formatting of data label in Card visual doesn't change with slicers.

    I created a Card visual with a conditional formatted data label (font is Green if positive and Red if Negative).

    However, when I use the slicers the value might change from positive to negative but the data label stays Green.

    The conditional formatting seems to not sync with the slicers like all the other components in the page.

    It would make the reporting of KPIs way easier if the conditional formatting would also change according to the slicers.

  10. Funnel Select order of 100%

    Would be really good that the funnel could have a definition of the 100% being on the top or on the bottom (making it a pyramid instead of a funnel)

  11. Show legend (data name) in stacked area chart

    When creating a stacked data graph it should be possibly to show legend in the areas and not only data labels. So you easily could read which program, unit, costtype for example the data represents.

    And also a sorting where I could group small areas to misc. So I only se the big areas.

  12. Conditional Formatting on Drill Down

    To have conditional formatting only apply when you have drilled down a level. I have a report looking at productivity in a shift drilling down to hour level. The conditional formatting is incorrect on shift level if applied at hour level and visa versa

  13. Create an Ownership Hierarchy Structure Visualization for Subsidiary Ownerships or Fund Ownerships

    Could an ownership hierachy visualization tool be created where I can enter in the ownership percentages on the lines between two entities. A custom tooltip should be created in order to see for example how profitable each subsidiary is.

  15. Color blind pallet theme for visual

    Would be great if you guys create a pallet of themes specific for color blind people.

    On my company, 2 of our bosses are color blind, and anytime we have to make a dashbord for them, we have to change every single color on the visual in order to make it compreheensive for them.

  16. KPI Visual supporting Calculation Groups

    With the upcoming functionality of Calculation Group a new KPI visual would be desirable, which supports the Time Calcualtion Logic of Calculation Groups

    Currently, a KPI visual needs Measures for the value and the targetvalue, thus they need to be defined in front.

    With Calculation Groups a KPI Visual should take one Measure, but offering the possibility to filter it for the actual value and the target value based on the calculation group (or any other dimension). In Calcualtion Group i would therefore define an item for the actual value and one for the value of the previous year, which…

  18. Substituir campos vazios por 0 em relatórios do tipo matriz

    Quando crio relatórios do tipo matriz utilizando querys, algumas células ficam vazias e isso acaba gerando duvidas em quem observa o relatório, vocês deviam criar alguma opção para substituir esse valores por 0 diretamente no relatório, pois alguns desses campos vazios só são mostrados após a criação do relatório, ficando impossível substitui-los por zero no power query editor.
