  1. Have Color Saturation responsive to Highlighting

    Charts with Color Saturation Formatting should respond to Highlighting independently of original color. For instance if I have a set of column charts that are formatted as green if above target and red if below, when I highlight one column and I get the smaller columns on the other charts, these new columns should be painted differently from their originals if their stance against the target is different as well.

        • 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…

          • format visuals to the same width and height

            format visuals to the same width and height

            the ability to select Same Height and Same Width from the Format menu

            this would allow groups of visuals to be selected firstly to make then the same sizes and then to go on and use the Format Align, Bottom / Top / Left / Right etc etc

            • Conditional formatting between two measure

              EXAMPLE: IF plan cost>real cost; "red"; "green"

              so when we put this condition on matrix with real cost in "Values" all values of real cost will follow de condition form.

              • What-if Parameter Slicer Limitations

                What-if Parameter Slicer has a limitation on the number of values. If too many, "Showing Representative Sample" Error appears. It appears that 1,000 values is the limit. Is it possible to expand the limit?

                • Top N & Dynamic Naming of "Others"

                  For example - this is to show top 5 countries by revenue on a visualization (i.e Bar Chart) and having a sixth bar showing other countries (not in top 5) to be grouped as "Others" while responding dynamically to filters.

                      • Add "Other" to Top N

                        It would be very helpful if Top N could also display an "Other" category so we could have an idea of the proportion of the data Top N represents and reconcile with the total shown on another visual.

                        • Drill Through Functionality in Power BI Reports

                          It would be a great idea if we could have a drill-Through functionality in PBI reports. For instance if user clicks on a report Visual, There should be an option to goto anotrher Reports for more details with SELECT Data only. This functionality is radily available in Tableau and it is much needed here aswell.

                            • Editor for measures

                              To edit measures in the measure grid is tedious and if you have a lot of measures you lose the overview very quickly. It would be great to have an editor where you can change and comment and all the things you can do e.g. in the VBA editor.

                              • What If Parameter

                                Hi,

                                It would be very helpful for advanced analytics and self-service reporting if you could also start supporting non-numeric data types in "What If Parameter". Currently, only numeric data types are allowed to be used in what if parameter. This is a huge limitation of "What If Parameter" in PowerBI and by including non-numeric data types - you will unlock further the power of PowerBI in revolutionizing data analytics "like never before"!

                                  The currently released usage metrics feature only keeps data for 90 days. Please increase the data retention period.

                                  FYI: the documentation for the usage metrics feature can be found here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-usage-metrics/

                                    Top N Slicers

                                    Create a Slicers that allows me to say 'Show the top N categories by value', e.g. 'Top 5 countries by sales'
                                    Similar to "Top N Filters". But we need this option in the Report visual for some of our customers.

                                    • Quick Measure - Percentage of Group

                                      Would be great to add a quick measure for calculating the % of the value (or sum, etc.) of a specified data group categorization. For example: select Sum of total Revenue, then Quick Measure for Percentage by Group; and then you could either show it as a percentage by Market Types, By Offices, By Years, or Months of a Date. Etc.

                                        • User Activity by portfolio

                                          It would be very useful to be able to use the user activity report to drill down on which portfolios the activity is happening and where each user is spending most of their time. What I would like to see is, how many dealsheets were viewed in each portfolio and then also be able to click on a user and see what they have done broken down by portfolio.
