  1. Admin Center - Stop users from creating groups

    Please can you add functionality in the admin portal which could prevent users from creating groups. This will help to maintain control and governance of the system and ensure that it's purpose for implementing it into the organisation is fulfilled.

    • Power BI Admin: policy to disable Personal Workspace's

      We dont want our users to push all kind of data in to Power BI. With "my workspaces" this leads to this kind of situvation as we cannot control, where as when we steer this via "Group workspace" we could build an central solution where users can request creation of "Group Workspace" with clear data classification before we provision them in the cloud.

      for Governance reasons we would Need the possibility to disable the "personal Workspace" Feature (disabling creation of Groups by all users is another Topic). Otherwise users can publish data to the Cloud Service without Knowledge of the…

      • Linking Visualizations to Pages

        When Clicking on a visualization the option to be able to go to another page of the report. I know this is possible through tiles but I would like to publish the link a way that an unlicensed user is able to see it.

        • Ability to delete "orphaned" Content Packs in organization

          Organizations need the ability to delete "orphaned" content packs where the owner (creator or workspace) no longer exists in the organization; possibly as an Admin role. When an employee leaves or group is removed, created content packs are still visible within My Organization and can not be deleted (only allowed by owner).

          • New Matrix Visual (March, 2017 Release) Total Row

            The new matrix visual, currently in preview, does not seem to display the total row. I've tried turning it on and off through the "Subtotal" option in the formatting controls, but cannot get it to display. The previous matrix visual seems to be working fine.

              • Slicer Header Font Color should Match 'Options' (clear selections & dropdown)

                I have slicers with a header using a dark background/light font color, making the 'Clear selections' and dropdown list options virtually undetectable. Perhaps the default font color for these options should match the header font color... thank you.

                • New content pack version nag bar breaks intra-report navigation

                  When a previously published content pack is updated, it will introduce a nag bar on any personalized reports that are based on that content pack. This is a grey nag bar at the top of the screen with an X to close the nag bar. This nag bar returns every time the report is opened.

                  Its presence obscures the report page navigation UI. There is no way to stop the nag bar from appearing once a content pack has been updated.

                  There is a forum thread about this issue here: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/Organizational-content-packs-eternal-update-notification/m-p/64323#U64323

                  • Schedule for upcoming enhancements

                    Publish a schedule of planned Power BI enhancements, perhaps over the next 3 months, with the understanding that this list is not "set in stone". At the moment, we only find out about which enhancements make it after the fact.

                    • Signup is broken

                      As part of the process to signup for Power BI, MS sends an EMail to verify your EMail address with a "Yes, that's me" link. The link goes to a "Create your account" page which says, bluntly, "We sent a verification code to {email address}. Enter the code to complete signup." Except that I have received no code and there is no mechanism to request or receive a code. THE PROCESS IS FLAWED.

                      • Allow Microsoft Account logins

                        This idea forum supports Facebook and Google single sign on systems, but not Microsoft accounts. If this forum cannot integrate with my PowerBI pro tenant account (organizational account), it should at least support MSA. Why does the Power BI ideas site need my facebook or google account credentials? Sounds fishy.

                          • Microsoft Mandatory updating of COMMENTS *every* month if there are more than 1000 votes for an IDEA!

                            For popular ideas with more than 1000 votes, why are there no regular updates coming from the Microsoft product owners?

                            There are multiple comments from users asking for an update (or is that begging for an update?) with no response from Microsoft.
                            And some of these ideas have no updates for 6 months and have 3000+ votes.

                            Microsoft as the owner of each idea that is being developed on must keep *Everyone* in the loop, not just your internal teams, which is why this forum exists. You've asked for help to drive this product now be graceful for our help…

                            • It would be great if POWER BI dashboard allows us to send Report Name, Report Parameters, Filters(Slicer Values) to SSRS 2016 .

                              If POWER BI dashboard allows to send the above mentioned values in a URL to SSRS 2016 , we may be able to use the same filters at SSRS to view the details of same description as in POWER BI dashboard .
                              It will be extremely useful if one could go back and forth POWER BI and SSRS

                              • Include interactive R packages

                                Making R packages like plotly and leaflet available in PowerBi will vastly increase the interactive analytical power of the platform. This is especially true for scenarios in which you need pop up labels in your R chart.
                                I know this means interfacing with the plotly server, but I believe that will unlock PowerBI's full potential.

                                      • can't sign up

                                        Can't sign up to the Power BI Desktop, no email received for me to activate account. I used a company email address.

                                        • Connect to Datasets in Power BI Service feature does not support SSAS datasets

                                          The Connect to Datasets in Power BI Service feature does not support SSAS datasets. This is critical as this feature is certainly needed to control the proliferation of identical datasets and it has to support Microsoft's own SSAS datasources. Please add support for SSAS to this feature.
