  1. new site / portal for custom visuals

    Recently I saw that the custom visuals site is being ported to office store. Somehow the look and usability of that site is far lesser.
    The new site looks boring and I have to click 3 pages down to download the visual. This was just 1 click job in previous site.

    Please try and keep the same site or at least make the new site better.

  2. Put different calculations by agregation level

    In chart navigation, I would like to be able to change the calculation at the higher aggregation levels. For example, when I display the day I use sum and when I display month I want to display average or the last record of the month.

  3. Custom viz in Office store is downloaded as .zip and there is no .pbivz file.

    Change the file extension to .pbiviz then I can import to Power BI Desktop and it works.

    It seems that Custom visual files in Office store are downloaded as zip file. It should be downloaded as zip file.

  4. Transportation Network Mapping

    The Network Navigator and Force Directed Graphs are great, but they are free floating points. It would be great if you could tie each node to a location on a map. This would be a great way to visualize a transportation network and is a must!

  5. Moving Custom Visuals to Marketplace will hurt Enterprise users who aren't allowed access to the marketplace

    Moving customs out to the marketplace will hurt enterprise users with draconian ITRM whom disallow marketplace... need an option- you could be inadvertently locking out a huge segment of the market!!!

  6. Cross-Highlighting with Matrices and Tables

    The ability to cross-highlight by clicking on an entry in the new Matrix Preview is amazingly awesome, but the drill-down structure isn't ideal for most of our needs. I would love to be able to cross-filter by selecting an entry in a Table or old-style Matrix.

  7. Viz to load an Image and put dots with XY positioned showing measures

  8. Different palettes - qualitative, sequential and divergent

    Now that theming has been introduced to Power BI. It'd be great to look at enabling the use of different palettes for different types of visuals based on the type of data that is being presented.

    i.e. having a palette for display of qualiative data visualisations, another for sequential and a third for divergent.

  9. logged in user

    Can we expose the powerbi.session.userInfo object to custom visuals also. There are a lot of features the custom visuals may want to do based on user like tracking, logs etc.

    This can be pushed by main page into the sandbox iframe still maintaining the security of iframe as the data will be posted by main page to sandbox iframe

  13. Extend Dual KPIs Vis. to Multiple One

    Standar Dual KPIs Vis. allows us to see how two different metrics perform at a given point of time. The problem Is that we can cross only two metrics. Let us cross as much as we want to. E.g., I work in SEM, I would like to see how CTR, Cost, Clicks, Impr. perform over a certain period of time (lets say last month). With current Dual KPI Vis I can do it by creating 2 Dual KPIs graphs (2x2). However, when I move across the dates in one of them the other one remains steady.

    In overall, it would…

  15. For State maps, Positive and Negative performance by Green and Red indicators

    For my business needs, I look at State sales performance to indicate where trends take place. I would like the ability to show states with positive performance as green and stores underperforming as red. This always our team to visually see if weather or other factors are impacting our business.

  17. It would be nice to overlay an average line onto graphs that compare values

    to have an average line that lies on top - overlays - a graph that shows comparative values. For example, a count of data is displayed by month, but the average line is overlayed showing the average of all values from that year. So you can see june was below average, august was above it.

  18. pulse

    Have a pulse be able to traverse multiple charts and/or reports. This would automatically navigate the user through a story.

  20. Line charts visuals show values by their own ( ex. For 0.14 it's 0.13999999999) not for all.

    The custom visual for line charts are great , but I am finding one issue. In my database table values are rounded upto two decimal point and line charts visuals is showing some values like 0.139999999999 but these are not actual values (actual value is like 0.14).
