  1. move visual level filters to page level filter

    It would be super nice if I could move visual level filters to page level filter, instead of have to make a new, that is the same that I just have made in visual filter

  2. 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.

  3. Custom icons instead of bubbles

    It will be great if you will add opportunity to make different type of icons on the map with different type of customers on the map. I'm working with Sales Force and there we have different type of the customers. So on the map will be good to see them not only by colors, but also by different icons.
    Many thanks!

  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.

  7. Format count values with comma

    When graphing a categorical/text field in a bar chart and displaying the count, allow the number to be displayed with a comma. Because the underlying field is text, the solution is not to change the format of the field.

  8. Set data colors programmatically in power desktop

    It should be possible to set the data colors of all common fields in different charts and pages of the report to the same color without changing each color of each chart manually which takes time. It would be great if these defaults could be set programmatically and use hex codes from a table and then assign them to their relevant fields across all visuals.

  10. Option to Import all custom visuals at once

    Now we need to import one by one..It might be helpful if we can select more than one visuals at a time and import the same.

  11. Google Maps widget

    We do need an customizable, interactive, "drilldownable" Google maps widget (the default Bing map-widget is not close to having required options, limited maps ++).

    Has anyone developed Google Maps widgets?

  12. Matrix column headers word wrap

    Implement column headers word wrap as already available for Tables.

    This allows to save space when implementing report pages with several Matrix visuals (Pivot Tables).

  14. Please Add "Running Total In" Quick Calc to the Matrix

    Is important to add more Quick Calcs to the Matrix to have similar capabilities like quick calcs in excel pivot tables .I can use YTD function to calculate cumulative sum when I work with dates but when I work with categories without dates and also I want to do a cumulative sum from a created measures and not from a column of the table.

  15. Constant trend line as a measure

    There is often a need for constant x-axis line or y-axis line which is not average or median, or anything else.

    Rather it is a constant which depends on the slicer applied.

    This is usually the case if I calculated weighted averages, and want to divide my scatter chart ot 4 quadrants. Average trend lines deviate from my weighted average and that is a problem.

    So, Idea is to be possible to put a measure in constant x-axis/y-axis trend line. So either typing the value or putting measure in, would be a nice option.

    What do you think?

  16. More granular map zoom control and ability to set default zoom

    I tried searching the forums and haven't found a solution yet so I have 2 ideas to improve Filled Maps and Map visuals.

    1. More granular zoom control to increase precision of the view we are trying to display.

    When I zoom on the US I have to have the visual show 1/2 of Canada down to Mexico/Cuba to show the whole lower 48 states. The next zoom level in starts to cut off Texas, Florida, and Maine.

    ---------------------

    2. Ability to set a default view with button.

    This goes along with #1 as I would like to set a…

  17. Refresh Report in TV Mode

    When you are displaying a report of dashboard on TV Mode for long periods of time, it would be good if the visuals could also refresh in this mode.

    Currently, you have to exit TV Mode to refresh and then hop back in.

    Personally, i feel this defeats the objective of running live data.

    Thanks

  19. 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.

  20. Add Legend for Diverging Colors In Filled Maps

    When using diverging colors in a filled map, it would be useful to be able to display a gradient scale along with the map that would show the upper, median, and lower values that the diverging colors represent.
