  1. Group level filter

    Group level filters similar to Visual or Page level filters.
    It would complete the functionality of groups and also would make bookmarking easier.

  2. Hyperlink in Visuals

  4. Percentiles as easy measures

    Sometimes you need to analyze data using the 75% percentile or 90% instead of the average mean. It would be a nice quality of life feature to have this as a quick measure.

  5. audit subscriptions

    In the PowerBI Audit Logs, the View Report activity does not differentiate whether the "view" was the result of a report subscription running, or a direct user view.

    This needs to be split out so we can report on active or passive report views.

  6. Decomposition Sort Order

    The new Decomposition Visual is great, but it assumes you always want to sort high to low on the metric value. That doesn't work if you add a time field like Month, where you want to show the data over a year, you want by category order. Also some metrics have meaning where lower is best, for example defect rates, so you need full control over the sorting at each decomposition level. The developer should be able to predefine the default sort per level, but allow the end user to change.

  7. RANKX new tie-breaking argument (SKIP, DENSE exist now...) RANDBREAK

    I'd like a way for RANKX to arbitrarily/randomly break runs of tied data. An example set of 5 categories could see a ranking such as the following Blue - 1, Yellow - 2, Red - 3, Green - 3, Pink - 5 using the SKIP argument. I'd like, in this example, for either Red or Green to see a 4 as its rank. I don't care how it happens, just need it to be a series of rank values in certain use-cases, rather than grouping the ties.

  8. line and column chart with line series

    In the line and column chart, it is not possible to add a line series.

    I can add a column series, but I need two columns/measures to be able to have two lines.
    Then the two columns/measures are displayed in the legend as well.

    It would be great to have the possibility to add a column to create line series like it's possible for the columns in the chart.

    An option to set the line series = column series would be a great addition as well.

  9. statistics algorithms for quick measure

    please we need to add more effective complex measures for quick measure feature like (
    -Prediction (e.g., linear regression)
    -Classification (e.g., decision trees, k‐nearest neighbors) -Time‐series forecasting (e.g., regression‐based
    -outliers identifier

    -and allow developers to add their own Dax Measures to be built in for daily use.

    Thanks,

  10. Extend Aggregation feature for Enterprise data usage

    Currently, the Aggregation feature only works if the Aggregated fact table has less joins than the Detailed table (or to different tables).

    However, it's not possible to define Aggregated fact tables for the same Dimension but with different levels of granularity.

    --Example--
    Dimensions: Account, Date
    Facts: Sales

    1) Current Aggregation feature
    Currently, the only way to create a SalesAgg1 fact table with this model is to group by one full dimension. For example, we can have SalesAgg1 grouped by Account, and the joins would be:
    Account <<[account]<< Sales >>[day]>> Date
    Sales_Agg1 >>[day]>> Date

    If a report uses Account,…

  12. Power point

    Embedding interactive (not static! - just as with Excel today) PBI report inside power point is a must for our company and currently what is stopping us from going all over to Power BI in our data preparation, visualization and presentation

  13. Power BI Publisher for Excel - New Workspace support

    Power BI Publisher for Excel gave users an easy way to pull data sets into excel for analysis without having to go out to the Power BI service. Unfortunately, it only works with the Old Workspace experience. Will it be updated so that you can connect to data sets in New workspaces directly from excel?

  14. Allow unamed users to be broken out uniquely in metrics reporting

    Develop a way to unpack 'unnamed users' in a PBI Usage Report. Currently you are not allowed to unpack 'unnamed users' by-design, because the tenant admin specifies a subset of users who are not allowed to be identified individually in metrics reports. Request a way to display anonymized unique users in native PBI Metrics reporting.

  15. Availability to superimposing multiple sets into map.


    1. When working towards geospatial mapping, we came across the difficulty to have multiple sets of data superimposing each other on to a filled map, using a different parameter.
      Proposing ideas such as patterns, and mixtures of different color gradient as multiple parameters and layer of filled map.


    2. At this point of juncture, we do not have the availability of mixing a filled map data with coordinated map points.
      I believe this will allow better and deeper analytics on geospatial analysis.

  16. Explain the Difference. Can this be made into a proper dialog box that is moveable.

    On some laptops it is hard to manage this pop-up dialog. Also accidental clicking outside it closes it down and you have to start again.

    Today the filter on a Ribbon Chart (March 2020 release) would not reset when the Filter was removed it locked to the two years being analysed.

  17. Add the ability to Clone Measures

    Often when performance tuning or debugging measures I will create multiple copies of a measure. It would be nice if I could right click on a measure and choose "clone" to get a "measure 2" copy of it where I could edit the expression. For bonus points it would be fantastic if this also worked with Live Connection measures so that I can create a local version of a measure that is a slight variation of one from a Live Connection data set

  18. Conditionally formatting the Navigation Page option in Action Pane for a Button

    Hi,

    Is there any plan to conditionally formatting the Navigation Page option just like Web URL? so if this feature is available, then it will be very useful as we have already used bookmark to jump the pages. Currently we have option for conditional formatting when we choose Web URL option in Button action pane.

    So if there for some specific conditions, when user will press single button, then it should go to different pages like when

    Measure = 2, it will go to Sales page,

    Measure =4 , it will go to Product Page,

    Measure =0, it will not…
