  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Customize/format visualizations with formulas

    Visuals needs to be more flexible when it comes to styling/customization. For example:

    Axis lables/chart title: These are either hardcoded by a column from the dataset or set as a static text
    Min/max axis value: Set automatically depending on value or set as a static text
    Styling/colors: Same as above
    Etc. etc.

    Instead of just having a static textbox for these options, why not let the users put a formula there so everything could be dynamic depending on the data? The possibilities would be endless and frankly, these are things many other BI tools have as basic functionality.

  5. Gantt chart with multiple start dates duration per task

    Allow multiple start dates and duration per task line. The end result simulates a chart recorder. Allows to see relationships between tasks over time.

  6. Stacked Gauge

    The current gauge allows for a value to be plotted against the min and max values, where the amount of the gauge filled up is shown as one color. It would be great to add a "Legend" option so that the gauge acted like a stacked bar chart or pie chart in that you could see multiple categories making up the progress to a goal.

  9. Improve Select All Slicer Performance

    There are instances where we need to filter down the data set on one variable, like contract number (say it's an enterprise contract for a number of locations with different customer numbers) because we want to use this filter to find all the related customer numbers. With the limited customer number list, I want to be able to "Select All" customer numbers now showing and then unselect the contract number because I want to see all business for these customer numbers, whether each item was sold under contract or not. However, when I click to erase the contract number, the…

  10. 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.

  11. Sync attribute slicer across the pages

    Attribute slicer is helpful with its Search feature, however it cannot be synced with other pages as of now. It would be good if this syn feature is allowed on attribute slicer, since users wont have to fill in the entries again and again

  12. Allow "Goal" in KPI visual to be edited to custom text - eg: budget, plan, last month, etc. Goal is too limiting

    Allow "Goal" in KPI visual to be edited to custom text - eg: budget, plan, last month, etc. Goal is too limiting and is confusing my users

  14. Standard Deviation on Line Charts

    Similar to some other ideas that relate to upper and lower control lines, the ability to add standard deviation marks on line charts would be invaluable. Some metrics are naturally highly variable - particularly ones such as 'conversion' in web analytics.

    When we look at these over a longer time period, the huge peaks and troughs make it difficult to identify values in a range which we should/should not be concerned with! A simple shaded area showing +1/-1 standard deviations from the mean value would be hugely beneficial.

    These should be calculated from the displayed values in the chart, not…

  16. Waterfall Chart Improvement_Color Changing for Stacks

    Would like the ability to change the color of the stack for each labeled group. If a waterfall chart has multiple stacks for each category.. Example: Transportation Mode Comparisons: Shuttles, LTL, TL, Parcel - would like an individual color applied for each mode vs just the capability to change colors for "sentiments" of Increase/Decrease & Total

  19. Ajax calls from custom visuals

    With the "new" sandboxed iframes we cannot make calls to external APIs. This is very limiting so please make it possible to make external API calls. In order to do more sophisticated custom visuals, that can utilize existing publically available data/APIs, I think this is very important in the long run.
