  1. 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?

  6. 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…

  10. 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!

  11. 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

  12. Data Labels Variance

    On hover on data labels within comparison charts (eg a Year over Year Line chart) I should be able to see the variance YoY as a percentage. I always get asked for this in my dashboards using PowerBI

  13. In-built Time Intelligence with MTD, YTD, Prior Year calculations and Rolling "X" Months

    It would be nice to have Time Intelligence calculations for every dashboard, It is difficult to use DAX with Dynamic date. Let suppose user want to see his MTD, YTD for the past months.

  14. Would like to have an argument builder wizard for creating complex matrixes

    I think it would be useful to have a wizard like power query where you can set the specifics of a visual for example.

    Top N customers who have spent/havnt spent in the last ? month

    etc

    I think this would be a major selling point of Power Bi if implemented.

    Also since we no what our date table is I think it would be useful to have built in time intelligence functions which could be driven of the side menu.

    Thanks

  15. Automatic relationships based on the table data and not just the columns names

    It could be very useful to base the automatic relationships on the content of the tables, when data are similar on 2 tables like customer names, or date.

  16. Enable drill down into the grid. Same way of SRS or Excel

    with the drill down enable in the views, pages or dashboards will be easier to analyze data. Also will help to keep the reports compact and expand or collapse interactively.

  17. Quick Insights - Expanded Integration with Desktop

    Currently results from Quick Insights seem limited to pinning individual tiles to a dashboard in the Service. It would be more useful to expand on this great feature to be able to 1) select ALL the results and pin them en masse 2) ability to pin or import Quick Insight results to the Desktop authoring tool to be able to further customize the results.

  18. Tooltips update when selecting multiple areas of a chart

    It would be good if when selecting multiple areas of a chart (ie. 2 or 3 of 8 bars or 1 or 2 slices of a pie) the tool tip updated to show total of selection or showed more data like the average max min etc.
    This would allow for selecting parts of a chart to get a quick total or compare the average of 3 months to the yearly, etc.

  19. view as specified date

    The ability to view as a particular date would be very useful. Many graphs we use are based on today's date (autocalculated by Power BI), therefore, the ability to view the dashboard as though it was a particular date would be very beneficial e.g. the last day of the month to review the previous month's targets and figures.

  20. Tooltip for Analytics

    There should be a label or tooltip to show which analytics has been used. For eg. in a bar chart, if I'm showing an average line as well as a maximum, how would the user/viewer identify which line that is for.
