  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.

  2. 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…

  3. Please extend data categories for measures to live connection

    Last August (2018) ,data categories for measures was introduced by Power BI desktop team .This is a brilliant feature as it introduces possibilities of creating complex visualisation using SVG. This is also great KPI and sparklines workaround.My issue is that it does not work with Live connection (SQL Server/Analysis Service) (Image URL greyed out). Several organisation use their reports through live connection to tabular model. This also resolves dynamic KPI threshold issue which is a limitation in tabular model
    Please see http://www.mssqlgirl.com/dynamic-kpi-threshold-in-tabular-or-power-pivot.html
    Enabling image URL when connecting LIve will be a big win-win situation for both Power BI users and…

  4. Base constant line off of measure

    Currently the constant line option in analytics only allows for a hard coded value. This field should allow you to select a measure to base the line off - so that it can dynamically update when filters are applied.

  5. Dataset Perspectives

    The new modeling view in Power BI Desktop supports multiple layouts and many features (multi-select) that make designing large models easier. Perspectives should be added to the new modeling view with a 'Manage Perspectives' icon next to the Manage Relationships and Manage Roles icons on the Modeling tab.

    In an initial release, the Manage Perspectives dialog should provide the same features as what's available to Analysis Services projects in Visual Studio. For instance, there should be a table with each column representing a distinct perspective and the modeler can quickly choose which tables and individual measures and columns are included…

  7. 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.

  8. Key influencer visual should support row level security environments

    The key influencer visual is not usable for us because it shows an error message that row level security is not supported. So please add support for row level security.

  9. Composite Storage Models

    This feature would split the storage of an imported table between in-memory (cache) and disk. The dataset designer would be able to set a policy defining the rows (partitions) of the fact table that would be stored in memory similar to an incremental refresh policy. For example, the model could always store the last two years of data in memory but data older than two years would be stored on disk. (Of course most report queries only access the recent data so this is where the most expensive and performant memory resources should be allocated).

    The data stored on disk…

  10. 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…

  11. Create a quick measure that enables past 4, 12, 26, 52 week % change vs previous year

    The idea would be create simplified rolling time period measures to enable trended analysis.

  12. Multiple layers on the map

    multiple layers on the map
    I need a map with two layers that show me one layer showing the active clients and the other layer visualizing the clients prospects. In this way, I could see the map of opportunities in a certain region that I have not been working on yet.

  13. add geometric mean calculation

    one of the important calculation in water quality is the annual geometric mean calculation. I would like to see additional calculation on geometric mean other than the arithmetic mean.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  17. 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.

  19. Opposite of ALLEXCEPT

    ALLEXCEPT remove all filters except specify columns.
    I'd like function that would keep all filters except specify columns.

    I know I can use ALLEXCEPT and add there all other columns except this one. But It would be much easier if that function would exist.

  20. Box Zoom Box Select and Lasso Select.

    In the world of BIG DATA and Data Science analytics, sometimes a simple line or scatter plot is the solution we need. But unlike many other BI solutions there is no intuitive way to zoom in on a section of the plots and then select the data points that you are interested in. I would like the feature of doing an area zoom or box zoom in the default line and scatter plots. As well as implementing a box and/or lasso selecting tool for exporting data.
