  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Current Aug 2016 version don't support Dynamic lines in x and y axes, which works on measure . Thru this we can segregate the area in graph.

    I am working on Menu Engineering task and i have designed a good report which is showing me popularity% on y and Item profit on X axes , menu Er has 4 component, If an item is both profitable and popular then it’s a STAR. It it’s profitable but relatively unpopular then enter the word CHALLENGE. If the item is relatively unprofitable but popular then enter the word WORKHORSE. Finally, a DOG is an unprofitable and unpopular menu item, i want to segregate thru these dynamic line of X and Y Axes.

  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

  13. When using Analytics on a chart, the ability to show what they are on the legend

    Currently when you are using analytics for example, to show the average of each bar, there should be a way to show what the bar is on the legend. In addition, even though there is only 1 measure within a chart, you currently do not have the option to even show a legend, so to kill to birds with one stone I would advise these enhancements to happen concurrently.

  18. Integrate SSIS 'Data Mine' tools into Power BI

    I would really like to see Power BI take the same Data Mining abilities shown in SSIS 2013.
    I am thinking about being able to quickly produce linear/expo regression, tree-sketch or forecasting models, based on the Power BI data source directly, and immediately edit them into our dashboards.

  19. Function for easy and fast accumulation of values

    Add a visual or a function to automatically show values accumulated without building new complex formulas.

    (with data that has more then 3 Mio. rows accumulation formulas get problems)

  20. Split Azure Tags into separate values

    We want to use tags in Azure to Analyse and visualize data in power bi, but unfortunately, all tags are included in only one field. It is not possible to create charts with that. Please split the tags into separate fields or a separate table.
