  1. Power BI Dataset Design App

    In the future there should be a dedicated app for designing datasets exclusive of Power BI Desktop. Power BI Desktop's existing modeling capabilities should be retained but all of this modeling functionality and future modeling investments should go to the new app. (This is similar to what happened with Power BI add-ins for Excel).

    The new dataset design app would be capable of targeting Azure Analysis Services servers and would contain the very best modeling features from existing designer experiences as well as application lifecycle management (ALM).

    The app would enable/disable features based on the target server (PBI or AS?…

  3. Calculating % of column total, filters applied

    This measure would be pretty useful for some kind of reports, bringing a value as the % of the column total, just like this:

    X | 20 | 30,77%
    Y | 30 | 46,15%
    Z | 15 | 23,08%
    Total | 65 | 100%

  7. R package sugrrants

    Could you add support for the R package “sugrrants” available on CRAN? It’s a powerful package for visualizing times series data.

    Thank you.

  9. 100% Stacked Bar Chart with own targets -> To GO Automatic

    I am looking for some advanced function in 100% Stacked Bar Chart to allow set custom targets as 100% maximum.

    This maximum might be set via Measure. This Measure would be possible to set via X Axis setting END of axis. It can be done via similar approach for Conditional formatting for visual titles, so after clicking on three dots user would be able to select particular measure that would be set as 100%.

  11. Selecting/cross-highlighting a filter-based measure should filter the rest of the dataset

    I've created measures that are based on FILTER statements to count rows/items in a certain situation, like this:

    Overdue Customers = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Customers), FILTER(OverdueBalance > 0))

    When I have multiple measures on a single bar chart, I should be able to highlight one and filter the rest of my dataset - in this case, to see which customers (from a matrix visual) are overdue or how their balance has trended over time (in a line chart).

    If the measure uses a SUM or COUNT that doesn't filter anything, then this wouldn't apply - but in cases where the measure has to…

  13. 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…

  14. Show differences when you right click and select "exclude" for certain variables

    For example, I have 10 types of discount listed in the column 1 (10 rows + the header + the grand total at the bottom line), and the sold, and Revenue and ATP (=revenue / sold) are listed in the Column 2, 3 and 4 respectively. Right now, if I select the first type of discount and right click to exclude, I will only have 9 discounts types (9 rows + the header + the grand total at the bottom line) with sold, revenue and ATP associated. Now, my grand total ATP changes because I exclude discount-1's sold and rev.…

  15. Adding packages to support Lemmatization within Power Bi.

    Currently, Power Bi Online Service does not support packages for Lemmatization. Users are forced to use stemming alternatives for generating reports on online service.

  17. Link Key Influencers visuals with overall report

    When I see a key influencer designed like a bar graph, if I click on the bar, the other metrics on the report doesn't change. I think it'll be good if it does work like a regular visual

    For example, if the key influencer is, category A increases efficiency by 10%, I view the visual and when I click on the bar representing Category A, all the figures on the report should change with respect to category A. Sort of like a regular bar graph

  19. Single metric focus with "focus mode" show metric title on screen

    When a focus metric's "focus screen" is shown, the metric that is being focused on is nowhere on that enlarged screen. Show the title of that focus metric on the focus screens as reference.
