  1. allow to use the slicer to superpose results according to filter values, not just to combine (sum, average) them

    allow to use the slicer to superpose results according to filter values, not just to combine (sum, average) them.

    I have a column with dates, another for results and another which represent groups (cities, as an example). I would like to see on the same plots the values over time for different cities (multiple lines)

  2. Add comment flags to line chart when X axis is a timeline

    Sometimes company announcement’s, marketing campaigns or management decisions have a direct impact on the numbers. It would be nice to visualize this in the graph as it already could explain why you see for example some peaks.

    I use quite a few custom visualizations from the gallery - https://app.powerbi.com/visuals/. Often times these visualizations get updated and I wouldn't even know what got changed. On the website, clicking on any of the visualizations would show only one screenshot. Why not show multiple screenshots and also list the changes with each version?

  4. Add WMS map layers

    I would like to be able to add WMS layers (and ideally other map services) to the maps in PowerBI. Bing is great for a lot of things but there are a ton of WMS servers out there including services companies have spent time and money developing It would be nice to use those custom maps with PowerBI.

  6. How to change graph type on data selection


    I want to create a report that shows a line graph of plotted data over a timeline of Months for a year, and when the data of a singular month is selected the line graph should be replaced by(or converted to) a bar graph showing plotted data over a timeline of days for a month.

  7. table heatmap issues

    I am using table heatmap custom visual. I am facing issues while updating its property. I am not able to change color brush and bucket number for the graph.
    Plus I would like to add one suggestion here. I would like to have a functionality which will allow me to adjust tile size of a table.

  8. Real Time Stamp with time when the model the data model was updated

    I am typically refreshing all my financial model through "manage queries" interface in excel, however Submission Data reflects the date when the model was created as opposed to when it was last updated. I need to keep in mind when I was updating the model. This is quite inconvenient. Please look at it

  9. Multi-line column headers for tables with word wrap

    There are a lot of excel formatting features that would be nice in Power BI but at the top of my list is word wrapping for long column heading names. For example, Proposed Fund Purchase Price would wrap to
    |Proposed Fund |
    |Purchase Price |
    | $120,000|
    because the data in that column would fit nicely under that text and I could fit more columns on my table.

  10. Gantt by Time and Planned v Actual

    The Gantt Visual should allow greater granularity i.e. include time: Hours, Minutes, Seconds. This should be part of the axis and duration.

    An alternative to "Completion" could be an 'actual' input i.e. [Actual Started] and [Actual Ended]. This will show Planned v Actual in a Gantt.

    User chan choose via control fiel (i.e. drop down) the axis value.
    Example: Bar Chart with x-axis "Weeks" and y-axis "count(Costumers)". The user can change the y-axis with the mentioned control field to "sum(turnover)".

  15. Enable sizeable points in the map viz

    It would be very helpful if you can adjust the map viz that it is posible to to change the size of the points manually to make smaller points possible to display also more points in the map.
