    • Toggle Between Stacked and 100% Stacked

      Allow user to toggle a Stacked (Bar or Column) between 100% Stacked or Stacked. Users can then choose themselves if they want to see the volumes or percentages. This choice could simply be added to the ellipsis menu on the chart.

        • Data label for Trend Line

          Adding the ability to display a data label for the Trend Line analytics feature, similar to other Analytics features like Min Line, Max Line, etc.

          'Name' text would be a good start, to identify the trend line apart from other Analytics lines. Adding 'Value' / 'Name and Value' text, displaying R-squared would also be of value.

                • Quick measure to Calculate the number of workdays between two date columns

                  This appears to be a common issue. There are several very complicated examples for how to resolve this but they require transposing into your own specific situation. I find these very difficult to replicate. A Quick measure that provided a solution would be extremely helpful..

                  • 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…

                    • Area selection for any chart

                      Add a feature to all charts so that the selection of an area in a chart automatically selects all data points within the area. In other words, for all graphs, it should be possible to select an area with the mouse and automatically apply a filter to the page that selects only the datapoints included in the area that is being drowned.

                      • Number Format

                        Need to include India's Number Format.

                        Currently we have US number format in the App due to which it's creating confusion and difficulties in visualization.
                        For Example in Power BI Desktop App it is 150,443,572 which is a US format but in India it's 15,04,43,572.

                        So, it will be better for visualization if we also include Indian Number Format.

                          Basically I'm looking for the exact functionality provided by Calculated Items within Pivot Tables. These new items would be calculated for all numeric metric fields.

                          • measures using forecast values

                            It would be helpful to use the forecasted values within measures. For example, when forecasting with "ignore past 6 months" it would be helpful to find the variance between the actual and the forecasted value.

                                • Ability to disable Drill Through option on visual

                                  Power BI automatically enables drill through option based on fields and filters used across different tabs and visuals. Many times, drill through option shows up even though it was not intended for creating confusion for production users. There should be some kind of control for developer to turn off drill through on visual.

                                    When using Power Query and querying MS Exchange user's calendars it takes an eternity when user's have a lot of appointment items. I don't know if it is scafolding or just make the filter in the source, but an adjust of the way the items are retreived would be greatly appreciated

                                    • Facilitar a Extração dos Dados

                                      Permitir copiar os dados para o clipboard. Hoje para eu conseguir os dados do Power BI em uma planilha do excel, é necessário publicar o arquivo e extrair do Power BI Online. Facilitaria muito se funcionasse o velho e conhecido ctrl+c e ctrl+v no dekstop.
