  3. Ability to use Cube Sets

    The Ability to show cube sets is very important, as most of my enterprise customers still have lots of cubes.. and they want to use them as they used to with older dachboards platforms.

  4. Pie chart (and donut chart) displays filtered value area incorrectly

    When a pie chart highlights a subset of the total data, it should use the *area* of each wedge to represent the data. Instead it uses the *radius*. This is unintuitive and visually misleading.

    Example: You have a pie chart with radius 1 (area = pi). Assume we have only one "wedge" for simplicity. Now highlight 50% of the data, using a slicer. You expect the pie chart to highlight 50% of its area, instead it highlights a circle with a radius of 0.5. The correct radius would be 0.707... (square root of 0.5), resulting in an area of 50%…

  5. Graph new measures based on calculated column

    Hi,

    It would be awesome to be able to chart new measures that are based on calculated columns withing Power BI.

    Currently, those new measures can only be used in the Tooltips section instead of the Value one.

    Many thanks.

  6. Easier to use YTD, QTD and MTD quick measure

    I'm currently unable to get YTD, QTD and MTD to show properly within my dashboards and reports. It would be great if you were able to drag and drop the quick measure and it automatically adjusted to the current month you're in. For example, if it's May 2017 and I'd like to see 2017 YTD to 2016 YTD side-by-side, then it would not show me the total for all of 2016, but just YTD 2016 thru May.

  10. When streaming data into Power BI from Stream Analytics, if you display the data in a table

    When streaming data into Power BI from Stream Analytics, if you display the data in a table it will accumulate until there is so much data in your chart that you can't read it. There should be an option to limit the tableto show just the most recent [x] number of data points. You could base this off of the System.TimeStamp value produced in the Stream Analytics SQL Query.

  11. Enables Analytics pane for combo charts

    By enabling the Analytics pane in combo charts, it can be used to overlay charts with a constant target line or a forecast for the running total. It would save space on dashboards / reports and provide more informative & interactive visuals

  13. Conditional Trend Line

    A conditional trend line with changing backgrounds would be great!
    For Example if a store is Rank 1 in January it is at the top of the graph and has background of golden...stating the store is in Elite Club.(Range of Elite Club Ranks 1-10)Similarly if the store does badly in February it falls in the Good Club (Range Ranks 11-30) and has a background of blue and so on for average ranking and below average ranking stores

  14. Need to report on PowerBI use via PowerBI

    We often get asked to report on PowerBI adoption/use. While the Admin interface gives us a pre-built report, and the admin audit log gives us data, we can't share that report or build one of our own to share with others. It'd be great to have PowerBI logs as a connector that we could leverage in our report building.

  15. Creating graphs using date ranges

    Its extremly difficult it would seem to create visuals based on dates. The formatiing or recognising of dates is extremly difficult. It seems like I must always have dates in the base data displayed vertically. It would be extremly helpful for the dates to be recognised in Power Bi easily so that for example you can display a simple line graph over several years. I had to manipulate my entire data first and name each month at P01, P02, P03..... etc. to enable me to plot the dates on a graph.
