  2. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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. 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

  9. 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. 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].

  11. color chooser

    The color wheel provided for custom colors is too basic and often does not work when I am trying to obtain a certain color. Some items that would help a user get to their desired color:
    1) Add a brightness slider so users can brighten or darken the pallet.
    2) Add an eye dropper so that users can choose an existing color on their dashboard.
    3) Add the ability to enter RGB codes to specify color.
    4) Add a transparency slider.
    5) Allow the ability to specify transparency in the hex code and RGB codes.

    Thanks!

  12. 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,…

  13. 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)

  15. 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.

  18. 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.
