  1. Slicer Select All vs Select None

    Would be nice if when select all is enabled on a slicer that when you choose select all it shows everything in associated visualizations BUT when you de-select all the associated visualizations show nothing. At present either option shows everything.

  2. 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

  3. Auto size and space tables

    I'd like to see tables/matrices (or other visuals for that matter) auto size, as well as the position of a table being able to be locked to the bottom of another table. That way if you have 2 tables, one below the other, the second table will always appear in the same relative position (i.e. at the bottom of the first, no matter how big the table).

  5. Advanced conditional formatting (based on another metric/cell/dimension)

    HI,

    I know there is a condtional formatting option available. However, it's to simple for my business case. I want to make a dashboard in which I can easily see if my results meet their target. The target is a changing metric, so I can't fill in a standard value (which is currently the case), but I would need to make the conditional formatting based on another metric/cell.
    I would like to color my MetricA green if they are higher than MetricB. That's currently not possible. Also conditional formatting based on text or dimension is yet not possible. For example,…

  6. Scatter Chart - Allow for Play Axis Value Interaction/FIltering

    When using the standard Power BI Scatter Chart visualization, you can click on data points in the chart or in the legend to filter other visualizations that are in a given report. Unfortunately, you are not able to use the play axis for this type of filtering/interaction. There was a forum post on the community site that discusses that this is not currently possible with the standard scatter chart. (http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Is-it-possible-to-update-a-card-visual-based-on-a-Play-axis-in-a/m-p/49737/highlight/true#M19847)

    This proposed feature for the scatter chart visualization would assist in being able to tell my story, as my supporting visualizations would be filtered and I would not…

  8. Gantt Visualization - Freeze timeline when scrolling down list of tasks

    Currently the Gantt Visualization displays the timeline at the top. If I have many tasks and scroll down, the timeline moves off screen. I suggest that the timeline be locked in place so that we can still see the timeline even when scrolling down the list of tasks.

  10. Text wrap in chart legends and detail labels for all chart types

    Currently this functionality is partially available but would be exceedingly useful for many of us if it were to also be added to the chart legends and detail labels for all chart types (including bar, column and pie charts)

  11. Exporting Table visual to Excel

    When one export a "Date Column" of the Table visual to excel, it populates in CSV format and and "Date" format changes to "Date time" Format, which should not happen.
    Format of Date should remains same while exporting the data from the table visual to excel

  13. Decrease Bubble size in scatter plot

    Decrease Bubble size in scatter plot so that if there is millions and billions of data entries, the plot does not overlap the bubbles, and bubble size should be decrease so that graph does not look conjusted.

  16. alternate name for measure

    Have 2 alternative and optional names for a measure 1) a natural language alternative name and 2) a short display name. In a large model measures necessarily have detailed and precise names to differentiate them. This means they do not respond well to natural language Q&A and they visualizations end up with obscure labels - I can of course get round this by adding 2 new measures one with the natural language name and the other with the short name which both are just equal to the original measure, but that is a little cumbersome.

  17. Allow interactive functions (like slicer) in R visual

    When generating a visual from R script, the visual is only a picture, and cannot interact with other visuals created by Power BI, or be filtered by slicers. This means integration of R with Power BI only provide the same visuals that R can provide on its own. It would be nice if Power BI can apply filters to the data that feed into R script and allow R script running behind the scene to generate visuals based on filtered data.

  18. bookmarks

    Make Bookmarks available on VisualUpdateOptions and VisualConstructorOptions interfaces in custom visuals so that developers can extend custom visual functionality.

    This would include:
    + Ability to trigger a jump to a bookmark from a custom visual
    + List existing bookmarks (so that they can be displayed)
    + Filter bookmarks displayed in the bookmarks window
    + Create, remove, update and delete bookmarks
    + Store custom visual settings against a bookmark so that the custom visual responds to bookmark selections. [or allow custom visuals to be responsive to bookmark selections].

  19. Change or set default setting like font, size, colors

    I would like to customize report to our colours and fonts. I have to set this same parameters on every chart.

    Could you make something where I could set default font, size, 10 colours? This changes take a lot of time.
