  1. More Visualization Object

    It will be good to have visuals that can show previous, % change, trend with up arrow for positive and down arrow for negative especially on numerical data. I have a sample visuals in jpeg to communicate this better. Thank you. Bisi Onaolapo

  2. Percentage with 3 digits (075% instead of 75%) on histogram 100% - release 2.38.4491.282 (august 2016)

    I'm making a histogram 100% based on number of customers.

    Percentage is automatically calculated by the visualization.

    But this percantage is automatically based on 3 digits. I mean 75% is shown as 075%.

    And impossible to change this format.

    I've observed this new format from release 2.38.4491.282 (august 2016)

  4. Education data analysi

    I use the existing visuals for data analysis, but I need something more for communicating performance data to the public. I currently analyze data in PowerBI, then copy the data to Excel and use PeopleGraph, or another infographic tool such as VennGate to customize the visual representation and paste the graphic back to my PowerBI as an image and then publish the report to share with our school administrators.

  6. There should be an option to rename chart lables

    As of now i don't see any feasibility to rename column label at only chart level. There should be some functionality where we can rename chart column name other than column name.

  7. Custom Visual Time Brush Doesn't Display Time Axis Values on Embed Page

    The Time Brush (Microsoft experimental) isn't displaying the time axis values on the embed page. They were being displayed before the recent update (August). Is there a way to fix this issue?

    I tried making the window taller (this worked in the past), however, this does not help.

  10. Clearly identify data fields sent to an external service

    Any fields in a visualization that are sent to an external provider should be clearly identified by a different color field or border, and a tooltip identifying the service (name and URL) with a link to their privacy policy.

    I would also like to see this in the built-in visualizations such as the maps. It is not at all clear that information is sent off-site to Bing and which information is sent. I had to dig for it.

  11. Allows selection on which slicers can modify the graph(s) content

    When you have a slicer and graph(s) (any kinde) on the report page, the selection of values on the slicer will modify the value of the graph(s).

    It should be possible to select if those slicer can modify all the graphs or just the desired graphs

  12. Plotting percentages in visuals without aggregating/summarizing them

    I would like to be able to compare percentages on charts in the way that was possible in Excel. At the moment it only shows the count of the percentages which is not so useful to me.

  13. Tile and shape connectors

    When creating dashboards, sometimes it is necessary to explain the cause and effect relationships among different KPIs.
    Say, customer satisfaction index will have an impact on profitability.
    It would be great to model the relationships among KPIs and show them visually in a dashboard.

  14. Hierarchy Button Colour

    The hierarchy arrow buttons on all charts and visuals should have a solid color, possibly customizable. I have report recipients that have no idea that a chart they are looking at has a hierarchy button available.

  16. KPI - status - direction - add "neutral" option

    For the visual "KPI", I am missing an option of tracking/displaying development over time without having to define it as either 'low is good' or 'high is good'. There are several cases where clarifying the development is a nice feature, but where you cannot possibly say that either an increase or a decrease is a good thing.

  20. Timeline Custom Visual Behavior Through Tab Changes

    The Timeline Slicer Filter persists through tab changes, but the visual makes it look like it doesn't. This leads to really confusing situations where users can't figure out why their numbers are a fraction of what they should be. Ideally, make the filters and the visual persist (similar to the behavior of a standard slicer), but if that's not immediately possible, then at least make the filter reset on tab changes (similar to the filtering behavior of a bar chart).

    Thanks!
