  3. make column charts simplier to manipulate visually

    when building bar charts make it simple to re-order the columns the way you want it, instead of alphabetical order I may want to do it by my own custom categories. I should be able to select each bar in each column manually and be able to move them in the axis on the right of the screen

  4. Size of Visuals

    It's too bad we have a lower limit for sizes of visuals as well as having the "top bar" (the one with the 3 dots) for each visual.
    When adding a small information on a report we are using too much space for something which do not require filter/extract/action.
    Adding option to hide the top bar and also to be able to put height of visual below 40 pxls would be great.

  6. Persist objects on report level and retrieve the same when needed

    We need to persist objects on report level so that it can be used from any instance(visual tile of developed custom visual type).

    This will be useful when there would be multiple tiles of same chart type(custom type) in a single report, that need some common data to be shared.

  7. Sort pie chart in counter clockwise direction

    Since most languages read left to right, the largest piece of the pie chart should go on the left (as it's obviously the most important). I can order from smallest to largest (so the smallest appears on the left), but when I attempt to order again by the same value (I assumed if I selected the same button for ordering it would sort in the reverse direction) I see the pie chart doesn't reverse as expected, it jumbles everything up. Seems I can only choose to have all my most important visuals on the right, or not in order.

  8. Customize Fields in focus mode

    It would be awesome if we could add multiple fields in focus mode for List View. The View Records button puts together a random conglomeration of detail, but if Focus Mode could act like a tooltip and display more info of a table...this would be very helpful

  9. Car/Vehicle Visual

    I love the 3rd party visuals called Aquarium and I was thinking it would be very useful to have a similar visual but instead of fish using cars (sedan, suv, pickup) that will be great because in every business we have fleet of vehicles and we want to represent THEM in Power BI.

  10. Tabular Format Improvements

    Need an option to visualize numbers in tabular format so that variances can be highlighted with color coding (e.g. how to show the profit and loss for a month against last month, MoM variance, Variance against target etc)

  11. Power BI Data Custom Visual

    It would be better if Negative Values in the Bar Charts are visualized in Separate Color rather than we are selecting the required fields and then to change the color to show differences.

  12. I just want to log into Power BI and see MY OWN stats each time instead of having to filter by my employee number EVERY TIME I log in.

    I just want to log into Power BI and see MY OWN stats each time instead of having to filter by my employee number EVERY TIME I log in. Why can't I save my own stats to see it straight away?

  14. Header in slicer selection controls instead of above slicer

    Header in slicer selection controls instead of above slicer. Now you see the header of a filter above the selection controls. would be nice if there is an option where you can set the header in the bar and when you click on it the seletion controls drop down.

  17. KPI - Bullets - From "Way too good" to "Way to bad" Blue, yellow, green, red and gray. Options

    One feature that I would really appreciate and I guess most of people would too, is the ability to create bullets KPIs inside Power BI.

    Today, this kind of bullets are possible, as far as I know:

    If they exist in SQL Analysis Server
    If you create them in Powerpivot and do a one way import to Power BI
    If you manually create them with icons and a parameter table
    In my opinion, this feature is very important to a BI tool such as Power BI because it is used largely in this area.

    Below, a scheme as a suggestion!

  19. Option to Expand a Free Text Description/Bubble on a visual

    I have gotten many questions relating to what exactly a visual is measuring (especially given unique measures and calculated columns). It would be nice to have the option to write a description in a visual description bubble.. basically a free text field... that can be selected (or hovered over). Where users can read how measures are defined, time frames, etc. Additionally, the idea could be expanded to a report level... where Text boxes can be collapsible/ expandable.

  20. Selecting a Legend Item should zoom in the Y-Axis

    I have a column chart with some values dominating the scale. If I select the legend item, the other columns do shade away, but the Y-Axis remains the same, still making it very difficult to see the actual columns of what I selected.
    If the Y-Axis would rescale when selecting the legend item, to the max of the selected item, that would be great.
