  1. R custom visual row limit

    Please remove or dramatically increase the R custom visual row limit. The limit is currently 150k. I imagine many people are working with many more rows on average than this and being able to use R visuals would be very nice.

  2. Multiple datasets in r script visual

    Sometimes one needs R to merge two tables. However, one can only import data in R from different tables, if there is a clear relationship between the tables. Therefore, please allow multible datasets in the R Script Visual.

    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?

  5. Flexible Drilldown

    Ability to create a not hierarchy drill down, that you can choose which dimension you want to detail the selected item. Eg. You have sales by state, so you can choose if you want to detail some state by product type or by store, or even choose if you want to see all your data by product type and so detail some type by state or store.

    Also, create some navigation map, to show what drilldowns was already been aplied.

  6. Move up values field on column matrix

    Matrix currently doesn't allow you to sort the columns based on designating values as being a priority above the column field names

    I want to put the values above the column header. In the first row (of the column headers) the measures I've created, then all the months for each measure. In this moment I have first the months and the measures for each month separately.

  8. notify custom visual updates

    Add option to update custom visuals when new versions are posted. Since PowerBI is on a monthly release schedule, new updates frequently break custom visuals that I like to use. Many times the custom visuals are updated after the PowerBI update, however we have to manually update them. It would be nice if we were notified that a new version was available, we could then also be provided with the option to update.

    This would work exactly like when I log into PowerBI desktop today, if a new version is available I am prompted to update.

    It would also be…

    Thanks for your input and feedback!
    Could you elaborate on this?
    Do you need a way to know when the version is automatically updated or a way to stop automatic updates. because Power BI visuals from AppSource library are updated automatically when a new version is updated in the AppSource.

  9. Sort Matrix by Total Row values

    Allow to sort Martix columns by Totals.
    Similar to the feature XL provides for Pivot table under - More Sort Options.

  10. Ability to change transparency of color under stacked area chart line

    At the moment, the area under a line in a stacked area chart uses the color of the line but presents it with a level of transparency. This means that the fill color doesn't match to the color presented in the key. Ideally, it would be good to be able to customize the level of transparency of the fill color.

  14. Enable developers to customize a Button for downloading reports to Excel/PDF/PPT

    Kindly help to provide a feature using which we can configure a button to export the page to either Excel/ppt or to pdf at one click. End Users complain that they do not want to click multiple links to download a report and want it to be done a the click of a button thus making it more intuitive.

  15. Add tooltip option to slicers

    Adding tooltips to slicers would allow people to priotize or identify which filters to apply. Assume you were to share a sales report and it contains a slicer that allows you to filter data by store. The slicer works perfect if you have a predefined intention of checking specific stores (for whatever reason), but imagine I´m new in the staff; having a tooltip would help me identify the important stores as I am scrolling through the slicer. That tooltip could have a store ranking, amount of people employed at the store for example.

  17. Matrix/Table Visualizations

    The matrix/table visualizations are dramatically behind where they need to be. Given that a large portion of your users are migrating over from excel, they expect to be able to do simple things like build/customize a matrix that displays their data in the format they are used to. Instead, many of the things that could be done in excel without even thinking are downright impossible to do in PowerBI at the moment. I really hope somebody takes a long look at revamping the Matrix/Table visualizations from the ground up so that formatting/slicing/customization can be done in a professional and timely…

  18. Adjustable border thickness for visuals (charts/graphs/etc)

    Instead of just being able to turn a border on/off and color it, we should be able to adjust its thickness as well.

  19. Enable the scatter plot with linear regression

    I think the scatter plot should have the feature of plot the linear regression just like the Excel has.
