  1. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  8. 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

  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. 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.

  13. Column level filtering within table or matrix visuals

    Visual Filtering is nice - but having the ability to filter each columns by different criteria would be very-very helpful and more user friendly. Example, in our business two of our top metrics are based on ticket statuses, One metric used a, 'Closed' & 'Work complete', status, and the other metric is based off 'Closed' status.

    We have to create two visuals to put custom filtering. Having this in one table or matrix - but being able to filter within the selected column would be powerful.

    The idea is to create one visual - that can contain the columns needed,…

  15. Allow zero stroke width for lines

    Now that we have markers on lines,allow the stroke width of the line to be zero, then only the markers will show.

    it's useful in visuals that mix lines with bars where the interpretation of the markers need to be made with it's correlative column where the columns or group of columns itself aren't correlated.

  16. 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!

  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.
