  1. Add a GB conversion option to new quick measure

    I would like to be able to enter a number for new quick measure/calculation to convert a KB Column to a GB measure (1024, 1024^2, 1024^3)

  2. SUMMARIZECOLUMNS()

    Support visuals that add contextual filters to measures that employ SUMMARIZECOLUMNS()

    Currently i have to use a measure that uses SUMMARIZE(), which is far less performant.

  3. Play axis for page report level like scatter play axis.

    We have few tool for story telling, like pulse charts or the scatter plot play axis.

    Could we have a play axis for page reports, so this affects all visual in this page, helping making a whole story telling solution.

  6. Bulk set up measures by attribute - be able to set up a suite of measures based on values of attribute field

    Bulk set up a table with a suite of measures (eg Sum) based on the values of attribute field (Desc = Tons, Desc = Metres) as a filter
    ie SumTons = calculate(SUM('Scenario Data'[Value]),'Scenario Data'[Description]="TotalTons (t)")
    SumMetres = calculate(SUM('Scenario Data'[Value]),'Scenario Data'[Description]="Total Metres (m)")
    This arose when importing a folder of csv files which are then all in one table with an unpivoted data struture.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. En la opcion de medida rapida se puede dividir para un numero fijo. 1.000 por ejemplo

    Que se pueda dividir para un numero fijo en el divisor sin tener que crear una columna adicional. Estoy haciendo una matriz y no permite calcular una medida rápida para un numero fijo.

  10. Text boxes should be easy to drag around.

    Right now I have to drag each corner to move the textbox to where I need it. Make the whole thing click-and-draggable like the other elements of dashboards.

  13. Add Table calculation DAX functions

    If we want to get previous row value / get percentage difference of some measure for current row with respect to previous row or 2nd previous row then we need to write lot of dax code.

    These operations have to be performed at the very end (after sorting) as previous row context might be changed depending on sorting

    In Tableau, this is very easy and can be done in few clicks. A developer can do this one in powerbi with knowledge on DAX but for business users it might become very complex.

    To take PowerBI next level, can you please…

  14. Allow use of case weights

    Market researchers (and others, I'm sure) often have to weight the respondents in their data sets to be representative of the target population. Weights for each respondent can be easily calculated and then added as a column to the data table. However after this point they are difficult to use, especially when there are numerous variables in the data you would wish to visualize. Other software such as Q, SPSS and Displyr allow you to use this weight variable to apply a coefficient that makes each respondent count as more or less than one. This would be very useful for…

  15. 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.

  16. History-to-date

    How about adding a "New Quick measure", that sums all the values in a measure to a specifict filtered date. This will work bel for Balancheet calculations and Inventory on hand calculations. call it a "History-to-date" measure.

  17. Advanced Mathematics: Numerical Integration and Differentiation

    Proper analytics require proper mathematics. Sometimes, the "basics" just dont cut it.

    Numerical methods rely heavily on the previously calculated value. In Excel, this is quite easy to do. In PowerBI however, this exceptionally tedious.

    For e.g: The Central difference method (or 3 point stencil) is defined as f'(x) = f(x+h) - f(x-h) /2h.
    The problem here is that the value in the next row or the previous row is hard to get access to.
    Here is some example code for a custom column:

    dydx =
    var index = Table[Index]
    var y_hmin = CALCULATE(LASTNONBLANK(Table[y],1), ALL(Table), Table[Index] = index-1)
    var y_hplus…

  19. Make an "other" feature in TopN!

    I am creating a monthly profitability matrix on top 10 customers and it would be great to have an "other" bucket to represent the customers not in the top 10!
