  1. Hyperlink in Visuals

    You should be able to insert a hyperlink field into a visual so when a user selects on the visual, it can take them to the desired page.

    • Compare two Queries - Columns

      I would like to have the ability to do a "compare tables" or "compare queries" option.

      I understand that there are visuals/queries I can build to compare the DATA within two separate queries but I want to compare the two queries. I want to know how many columns are in TableA versus how many are in TableB and which column names are different from each other. When I have two tables with 150 columns (give or take) and they are allegedly a copy of each other I want to be able to confirm that all 150 in columns in TableA…

      • combine usage metrics with other data

        I would like to be able to combine the report or dashboard usage statistics with other data, rather than being restricted to only the data provided.

        For example, it would be helpful to use additional data about users to segment the usage data, either to uncover additional usage trends among target demographics, or to apply security to the usage data, to share it with users who should only see a limited subset of the data.

          • Allow same column functionality as pivot tables in Excel

            Currently in pbi, if you add more than 1 measure to the Values field of a matrix, and then add a 3rd measure to the column field (e.g. a year, or month), the results alternate the 2 measures back and forth, which is confusing to read (for instance, harder to see trends over time); my suggested improvement is to allow a user to bring the column measure 'down below' the value measures so that you can group the values for each measure together in separate sections of the matrix... this is a drag-and-drop feature that has been available in Excel…

            • Power BI Service recognize local time zone for TODAY() and NOW() time intelligence functions

              As of now, the reports that I create on desktop utilize a lot of time intelligence functions and relative date filters. This is completely fine so long as I view the report on the desktop. Once I publish the report up to the service and then utilize those visuals in dashboards I run into this issue. All of my time intelligence functions (TODAY & NOW) and relative date filters convert to UTC.

              This issue causes my data to roll over to the next day 5 hours early which affects all of my subscriptions.

              It would be absolutely fantastic if Power…

              • DAX functions that return Report Name and Page Name

                Please create two new DAX functions, like GetReportName() and GetPageName(). In embedded environment, we're letting customers make copies of reports (they supply the report name), and we let them edit pages (name and content). Instead of hard-coding the report name or page name, it would be ideal to use these functions so that the values automatically change as report/page names change. Thanks.

                • Conditional Formatting Different Hierarchies of a Matrix

                  Example problem:

                  This situation can be applied to many other scenarios.

                  I have a matrix with Hours by Department and then by the individual employee (one level lower). I'd like to conditionally format the column "Hours" to be red when the employee works over 40 hours. I can do this, but then when the hierarchy is collapsed, it shows the TOTAL department's hours are formatted red, since the department total is over 40 hours.

                  The ability to format different hierarchies would be nice.

                    • Display for DAX-formulas

                      Creating a new measure is inconvenient, especially for a long equation. I am not always sure the equation corresponds with what I want. Secondly, PBI doesn't show in a clear way what you're doing wrong when you've made a mistake in the formula. So, it would be nice if a display just for DAX-formulas could be created. In this display, you can create your DAX-formulas and immediately see your results (similar to SQL).

                      • Allow Access to Usage Metrics Data through REST API

                        We are looking to access Data captured under Usage Metrics through the REST API.

                        This would allow developers to develop custom solutions (like automated reports that are sent out) which combine usage metrics data along with metadata from another source like a ERP system (ex. Workday).

                          • Top N+

                            Allow User to rank TOP N items plus dynamically create Other group for all the other items.
                            For example bar chart visual ranks the Top 5 items by category with sum(count or percentage) but also includes a 6th grouping for all the other items which don't fall into the TOP 5. This 'other' category displays the value (count, sum, %, ...) which will give insight into how ALL the 'Other' items compare to the TOP 5.

                            • SMALL() of excel in a DAX function

                              There is no function that returns the N smaller number of a given sample.

                              In Excel its the function SMALL() where you have to input the sample you want to analyze and the ranking of the number you want. In spanish the function is called K.ESIMO.MENOR

                              Kind regards

                              • Expand one single row: Expand "Row"... or Show Next "Row" Level... for one row, vs. all?

                                I love the matrix "Expand to next level", and "Show Next Level" options, however our Financial Statement users would like to choose one row in the report to either 'expand' or 'show next', without changing the appearance of the other rows in the matrix.

                                If this is possible now, without having to isolate say the 'Promotion' line first on the report, I would be interested in learning that.

                                Thanks!
                                Mark

                                    • SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR formula to be added to Quick Measures

                                      Hello Power BI team,

                                      On top of existing Quick Measure Time Intelligence functions, a most commonly used comparison is vsç last year results.

                                      To make it easier for all users can you please add SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR formula to quick measures as well.

                                      thanks

                                      • visual rectangle selection

                                        Having the ability to select in a visual (treemap, bar chart, ...) a subset by simply drawing a rectangle exist in a custom viz but should really be implemented on all standard/basic visuals, it would easily greatly improve user experience
