  2. 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…

  3. 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)

  4. 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.

  5. Allow Mailto: links in Card Browser visual

    Currently, hyperlinks in Card Browser must begin with http:// or https://, Mailto: links are not supported.

    Using a Card Browser custom visual to display a list of employees with information such as their email address with a clickable link would be very useful.

  10. 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,…

  11. Data Label for Shape Maps

    It would be nice if the data labels are shown in custom shape maps, so that you don't have to hover over the map.

  12. Choose alignment of Matrix Total Row

    The Matrix visual doesn't have an option to align the total row, it is always right aligned, which can mean it is misaligned compared to the other data in the matrix.

    Can a formatting option be added to choose the align left / centre / right for the Matrix total row?

  13. vertical axis crosses

    Excel has an option for changing where the axis crosses in a bar chart (Format Axis -> Axis Options -> Vertical Axis Crosses -> Axis Value). Its so basic and very useful. I couldn't find that option on Power BI.

    Milestone Trend Analysis charts feature an X-Axis with Snapshot Dates and a Y-Axis with planned Date values. Currently the Y-Axis in Line Charts only allows for aggregates of number values but not dates like in Excel.

  16. Tooltip - apparition configuration

    Thanks for the new tooltip feature. However, the tooltips disappear automatically when we move the cursor outside the tooltip area. It's not convenient when a tooltip contain a field with an URL. It's impossible to click on the URL because the tooltip disappear...

  18. 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.
