  2. Sync filters across report pages

    Allow filters in the new filter pane to sync across report pages, like slicer are able to do.

  3. Disconnect charts from different slicers

    It would be really nice, if we have for example 3 different slicers, however in one specific chart, I could use just 2 of the slicers.

  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. 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.
    Thanks

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Control charts (mR, Pareto etc.).

    It would be awesome if power bi could provide a control chart option with mR charts, Pareto charts etc.

    This would be very helpful in my line of work.

  9. filtros

    Con el nuevo panel no se pueden vincular las paginas entre los filtros, es decir, si tengo varias paginas y realizo un filtro en la primera, debería de haber un opción para que se vinculen y este filtro afecte a las demás.

  12. Default Column Alignment to Match Values

    Make the default alignment of the column headers in a Table match the alignment of the values. For example, numeric columns should be right aligned (including the column header) and text columns should be left aligned (including the column header).

  14. visual header to change visual type

    It would be great if you could allow users to change a visual to a different visual via a visual header icon (perhaps linked to a bookmark). This could, for instance, allow the user to change a line graph to a bar graph. It would also be useful if this could change the data within the visual (again why linking via a bookmark may help)

  15. Improve date and time hierarchy

    We need the hierarchy to be able to determine time from a date and time table and allow for visuals to drill up and down to day of week, week of year, hour of day, minutes ect. Also to allow for a filter to be added to this field where the last nth hours shoudl be displayed based on hour of day and not necessarily total count or sum for the hours. Many users might not be familiar with measures or DAX, so making this existing functionality withing the visualizations panel would help a lot for insightful analysis.

  17. Build a more powerful statistical analysis interface

    Add a powerful analysis interface like SPSS or WIncross so power BI can handle whole cycle of market research. Currently 60-80% of time is invested in manual powerpoint reporting. Or else create a plug in so the .csv or excel outpur from these tools can be drectly use to create dashborad or reports

  20. Replacing the values dynamically , like how it is in the Report Builder.

    Replacing the values dynamically , like how it is in the Report Builder. For example : print 'X' if it is '123' and print 'Y' if it is '678' in the quick measure.
