  1. 3 dimensional relationship analysis

    I want to do a relationship analysis of how Sales Reps interact with other sales reps via their account sets. Of course I can do this from the account perspective very easily, but I cannot see from the sales rep perspective a list of all the reps they might cross paths with on a daily basis. Connection chain would be something like this: (unique Rep1) > (Unique Account ID) > (unique Rep 2), but for every unique connection of rep to rep within each of their account sets.

  2. Export to excel with details not in Chart

    For data that comes from live connections or complex models, if you have a chart with Sales $ by Category, and choose to export, it only exports those 2 columns. It would be great if Power BI supported the ability to define what columns should be part of the export, but not needed to be shown in the visual. For example, you might want to add date as well but no need to show it in the visual

  5. Load all data for Map Component (e.g ArcGIS)

    When use Power BI map component (include the new ArcGIS), I often have a problem that the component can not load all data into the map. (I'm use latitude and longitude with direct query).
    I want a heat map for more than 500,000 customers.
    I can use leaflet to create the similar map in web, but when switch to ArcGIS by using Power BI, it just load part of data, and cannot show the whole heat map. Which become useless for large data analysis.

  8. Relationship mapping

    As part of business intelligence, understanding relationships between people is very important.

    As such, it would be great to be able to visualise relationship maps from a sharepoint list of people / contacts. There is software out there that does this, but I haven't seen one that links to one drive or sharepoint.

  9. Allow formulas to be entered for all reference lines in the Scatter Chart

    Currently, the lines that can be added are either selected by measures in the X axis or y axis or are hardcoded. Could we change this to be able to allow formulas to be added to determine the values?

  13. Allow field aggregation by percentile

    Currently it's quite easy to aggregate fields by count, mean, median. Can you add top percentile as an aggregate?

  15. Missing Totals/summary of selected values (as in Excel)

    When I have selected items in i.e. a treemap I miss today a quick calculation / summary of the values I have selected.

    In Excel we have on the righmost bottom corner a line that summarizes the values that have been selected in different cells. You get SUM, AVERAGE, MIN, MAX etc. easily presented each time you select any cells.

    I'd like to have a similar field/row/object in Power BI.

    If I for instance have a treemap Showing "%GT xx by yy" and select two of the fields, I'd like to see the sum of the values selected. Example, I…

  19. Field fixed during chart drill down for hierachy

    We would like to give below suggestion for enhancing chart drill-down functionality.
    1) If we use drill-down with hierarchy, we would like to fix x-axis field during drill down to next level. For ex. if we use "Year" and "Category hierarchy" then during drill down, Year should be fixed on X-axis.For more details, please refer this

    http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Help-on-drill-down-with-hierarchy-in-chart/m-p/42714

    2) Possibility to add all level of hierarchy in Legend.

    Thank you in advance!

  20. XIRR produces different results in Power BI than Excel. XNPV matches though

    I got an error trying to calculate xirr:

    MdxScript(Model) (1,42) Calculation error in measure
    ... The XIRR function couldn't find a solution

    The same set of cashflows produce a number in Excel -
    XNPV works in both cases but it looks like the root finder is not converting in Power BI but it works find in Excel
