  1. Adding Trend Lines and Associated Equations to Scatter Plots

    Being able to add a trendline to a scatter chart would improve my Power BI visualizations. Having a trend line and the associated equation allows you to see the relationship in the graph more clearly. Doing this in Excel isn't the same... I'd want my audience to have the benefits of seeing the data in Power BI. Hopefully at least a linear trend line can be added, but it'd make sense to have all kinds of trend lines (exponential, log, etc.).

  2. 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…

  3. SameperiodLastYear Visualization

    In case of SameperiodLastYear function its taking input of metric column and date, but during the visualization if user remove the date filed. it showing error. If this function start supporting at attribute, using existing inputs it will more usable.

    Secondly if it support date hierarchy, it will be wonderful.

    Example:

    if i want to analysis last year sale of any channel/region/state/city without adding date in visualization.

  5. 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.

  8. Conditional formating based on date

    Now conditional formatting for tables and visuals are working only with numeric values. It would be really good if we can format cells/charts based on date. For example - if "Column A" < Today - red, and etc. This way we can track if we are late in orders delivery an many thing else. Function sort by colour may be good addition to this!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Data download from published report

    It would hugely improve the usability of Power BI if users are able to download data in reports published on the web.

    Could you include this functionality please?

  15. More detailed usage metrics, that show which visuals have been interacted with and how much.

    More detailed usage metrics, that show which visuals have been interacted with and how much.
    Would give nice feedback on which visuals users like and interact with. Would also make trying different designs easier.

  19. Usage Metrics: Shared Info

    If I publish a single pbix to several workspaces, I would LOVE to see the overall metrics for the report rather than having to see the metrics individually in each workspace.

    Similar to how you can filter by distribution, if we could filter by location/workspace in order to distinguish it would be awesome.

  20. Hello, it would be great if you had a button that when clicked, opened a "save as" window and it was possible to save in known formats, such

    It is essential that you have this option: Large companies use exceptional programs like Excel as a means of analyzing numbers to study results and point out solutions.
