  1. Enhance your map visuals

    Add more functionality to your Maps visuals, to approach what has been created for '3D maps' in Excel:

    1) add layers, so that you can overlay multiple levels of information on the same visual, with ability to turn layers ON and OFF (this is a huge hole in the current pbi maps visuals)
    2) allow for customization of visuals on each layer, like being able to chart bubbles vs. heat maps vs. region mapping (e.g. zip codes)
    3) add a scaled distance legend
    4) allow toggling between 2D and 3D (nice to have, but lesser priority)

  2. 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…

  3. Dynamic grouping

    Let's say I have a set containing 100 elements and i would like to visualize (either in a table or in graph) the top 6 individually (i.e. by Sales amount) and the bottom 94 as an aggregated "Other" element (by mean, sum, etc. depending on the need).

  4. 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.

  5. RLS - Restriction based on granular / aggregate data

    Organisational privacy policies requires that director level should not have access to granular data. Eg. which employee working timings.

    Directors should only have access to aggregate data reports. Eg. Total sum of Overtime hours in a department.

    The only way to achive this now is to have 2 separate PBI reports. Additionally, director reports should only have aggregate charts and "Build permission for the underlying dataset" should be disabled.

    The ideal solution, each Role in RLS, will have an option "Access to granular data". If granular data access is not given, then all detailed tables, showing granular data will be…

  6. Adding a "weeks" option to the quick measure rolling average functionality

    In the new quick measure functionality, when adding a calculation for rolling average the only options under "period" are days, months, quarters and years. Would like to see "weeks" added as an option since many company metrics are measured weekly and we need to be able to perform rolling averages over a set number of weeks.

  8. Pareto analyze to quick measure.

    Creating a Pareto analyze is kind a difficult mission in PBI due to "memory issue". A quick measure for Pareto calculations would help a lot.

  9. Remove the new filter pane from being on by default

    I hate the filter pane and do not want it turned on by default. Please leave the original behavior (Filters on the Visualizations tab) as the default.

  10. Calculating Kendall’s coefficient (mann kandell)

    The Mann Kendall Trend Test (sometimes called the M-K test) is used to analyze data collected over time for consistently increasing or decreasing trends (“monotonic trends”) in Y values. ... If your data does follow a normal distribution, you can run simple linear regression instea. POwer BI has most other statisitical functions this needs to be added its a game changer for Power BI, in beating Tableau.

  11. Cumulative Ratio for Pareto chart

    Pareto chart is commonly used chart.
    However the expresssion is complicated using dax fomula.
    I suggest adding "Cumulative Ratio[%]" to quick measure.

    DAX:
    Pareto =
    VAR SummarizedTable =
    SUMMARIZE(
    ALLSELECTED(Table1), Table1[Category],
    "Sum",SUMX(Table1, Table1[Value])
    )
    VAR CurrentCategory =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( Table1[Category] )
    VAR CurrentCategorySum =
    CALCULATE ( SUM( Table1[Value] ), Table1[Category] = CurrentCategory )
    VAR CumulativeSum =
    SUMX (
    FILTER (
    SummarizedTable,
    [Sum] > CurrentCategorySum
    || ( [Sum] = CurrentCategorySum
    && Table1[Category] <= CurrentCategory )
    ),
    [Sum]
    )
    VAR TotalSum =
    SUMX(ALLSELECTED(Table1), Table1[Value])
    RETURN
    100 * DIVIDE ( CumulativeSum, TotalSum )

  14. Division in Quick Measures

    Allow entry of fixed values (ie. 1000 or 1000000) into the denominator of a Division Quick Measure to convert values. Today it is requiring me to utilize another database field, which does not work for this simple calculation.

  15. I need to sort my report objects by folder/object not by table/column. Nor should it be sorted in alphabetical order.

    I need to sort my report objects by folder/object not by table/column. Nor should it be force sorted in alphabetical order.

    In other words Program Start Date comes before Program End Date.

  17. Add Hardware Accelerated Rendering (GPU accelerated Analytics)

    With the advent of NVLINK from NVidia and how a few analytics groups are starting to leverage the GPU resources for database and analytics tasks - this would be useful to start reviewing/including in sql server as well as SSRS / Power BI (where applicable).
    WebGL is currently used in many tools that leverages client side GPU resources in the browser. this request is more for the server level.
    there's a few reasons for this.
    This makes a lot of sense in SOME cases :
    I. CPU and the system RAM currently in use is hitting a wall in performance…
