  3. Dynamic Table Visual - Select columns and measure to populate in table

    Introduce a new table visual or give a flexibility in current table/matrix visual, where users can select dimension or measure by which they want their report to be displayed. This will help users to create tabular reports on the fly and they can easily export the data in excel.

  5. Global Custom Visualizations

    It would be very useful to save imported custom visualizations globally.

    For example, I enjoy using the text filter quite a bit and would like to save it without having to reinstall it from file or marketplace.

    If there was something akin to add-ins for excel this would be very useful.

  6. Reset to Default Button Color

    After this new look has been applied to Power Bi service, the Reset to default button color is changing with the theme. Previously it was yellow color all the time. It will be nice I think if we have control to change the color or it can be permanently yellow color. Yellow is a contrast color & will be easy for the user to see that filter has been applied.

  9. Visual Heat Streams

    Usually red is high and blue is low and you cannot customize the color scale so that it can go right away.

  10. KPI indicator chart

    Hi Team- As of now we have default KPI indicators coloring such as Good, Bad, Neutral, None & Trend.

    if we can able to bring the Blank values also, it is much useful to show the difference in most of the dashboards. which are falling under blank data with distinct color. Please check if there is any feasibility to add for blank data also a seperate color for this custom visual chart.

    Thanks for the Good work

    Regards,
    Rajendra

  14. Highlight data point in a box plot, while still viewing the box plot

    Given a box and whisker plot, how do I highlight a particular data point along that graph to see the relative position of that point? Ideally I would like the user to select the name of the data point then it stands out from the rest. Perhaps it becomes a bigger dot or maybe a larger icon, while the original box plot remains visible but faded

  15. Incorporate patterns on visuals for PBI Desktop

    Can we incorporate patterns into visuals for PBI Desktop? Thinking of this as a means for being visually accessible. The current method of visuals that differentiate based on colour is not compliant with Ontario's accessibility requirements. Thanks!

  16. Customize Tool Tips for Matrix

    Within the Power BI Matrix option, under stepped layout, you lose the column headers for your stepped variables. When viewing the Tool Tips for the Matrix the Tool Tip results are concatenated and difficult to read. It would be nice to customize the Tool Tips to show each stepped item on a different line of the Tool Tip.

  17. Ability to filter using the new Sunburst visual

    I love the new MaQ Sunburst visual.

    One thing that would make it even better would be if selecting a section in the Sunburst would filter other visuals, such as a matrix, so the user could quickly see the data behind the visual.

  20. Add customized points on Filled Map

    Add second layer to filled map using a separate data set. OR add function to let user add customized point to map on top of the first layer. The customized points need to have label displayed on map to show the purpose.
