  1. Publish a Power BI Roadmap

    Currently there does not seem to be a roadmap for Power BI. This makes it very hard to plan implementations, as meetings tend to end up with someone saying "Microsoft must know this is a winning feature. I can't believe it's not on their roadmap."

    As the person who has to turn the stakeholders dreams into a Power BI reality, this leaves me feeling uneasy, as I can name at least half a dozen must have features that we still don't have.

    • Bug- In PBI Desktop, when typing a title, the cursor jumps from the title text box to another point on the page. This happens everytime when

      This is a bug report since I couldn't find an easy way to report bugs from the PBI desktop nor the website. In PBI Desktop, when typing a title, the cursor jumps from the title text box to another point on the page after so many characters are typed. This happens everytime when I am trying to type in a title. Please fix.

        • Power BI Home: Customizable page

          Power BI Home is certainly a good asset, but we are using Power BI as a corporate solution. 99% of our users are just consumers. They don't need education material or Informations over Power BI Desktop or Blog Infos. It would be helpful if it is possible to hide certain parts of Power BI Home. In our case we would hide the information. Another good way to improve Power BI Home is if it would be possible to add own help videos or informations. So the page is even more customizable.

          • Tooltips for buttons

            Since the July release it is possible to use tooltips on tables.
            It would be great if this option can be used on buttons in the action section.
            Now we have 'Back', 'Bookmark' and 'Q&A'
            Is it possible to add 'Tooltip' for buttons, so it's possible to use (for example) an info button, which shows information about the current report or visual for customer purposes?

            • Read Only Access to Relationship View in Thin Workbooks

              My definition of a thin workbook is when you connect Power BI to a tabular server. This can be SSAS Tabular or the Power BI Service (golden dataset as covered here https://exceleratorbi.com.au/new-power-bi-reports-golden-dataset/)

              When you use Power BI Desktop as a thin workbook, you cannot see the relationship view or the data view. While this makes sense (they are not editable), it means that it is very difficult for someone to write local measures. It is not possible to accurately write a local measure unless the relationships between the tables are visible.

              Please add the relationship view so the end…

              • Power BI Home: let users pin tiles to Home

                the selection in Power BI Home is based on usage, but sometimes user behaviour shows that a dashboards is being looked at and then you jump into a different report. Let users decide what is important to them and let them be able to pin it to Home, (from APPs and from Workspaces!)

                • Power BI Home: Rearrange selected tiles

                  Power BI Home shows a selection of tiles most frequently used from favorited dashboards. But sometimes the alignment of the tiles does not make sense. There should be an option to re-arrange that

                  • Emails sent from Power BI are only in English

                    When sharing a dashboard or invite somebody to a shared workspace, the emails are sent in English instead of our tenant language (or the users language).

                    • Editable Report Lever Filter Names

                      The option should exist to change the name of a filter at the report level, similar to how you can change the name of a column in the report to something different than what is in the source system

                      That way, such as is the case with the SSAS connections, you don't have to change all the names in a database to accommodate specific naming conventions for filtering

                      • Different default drill-downs level based on AD groups on one report

                        I have a case where I would like to show different default drill-down level based on AD groups on one report. In other words, I have a geo hierarchy where I have Region->Sub-region->Country, and AD groups limit the access to data, based on users' geographical location. There are AD groups for each Region and a Global AD group that sees all the data.

                        I would like to have a possibility for the Global AD group to see the default drill-down in visualizations as the Region level and Regional AD groups to see the default drill-down in visualizations as the Sub-region…

                        • Please Add possibility in bubble chart add lines to x and y axis custom measures

                          Please Add possibility in bubble chart add lines to x and y axis custom measures. Maybe in constant value fields ( https://prnt.sc/k9l2z4 ). Maybe in new menu. Look, we have fact sales amount on x axis (bubbles) and we want add on x axis plan amount (line) , but now we can't do this. The same on y axis - we set order number as bubble and we want compare it with plan as line ( http://prntscr.com/k9l8cb )

                            It would be beneficial to be able to export a visual, with all filters applied, as an image for further use communication channels.

                            • Drillthrough filter exclusion

                              The Drillthrough function is wonderful and powerful. However, there are times when we need to exclude a filter or two from passing through to the Drillthrough page.

                              It would be very useful to allow a list of fields that are excluded as filters on the Drillthrough page.

                              • New Power BI Home

                                I like the new Power BI Home in the portal.
                                Is good to have the content for "Learn how to use Power BI in there"
                                It would be nice to add the latest entries of the Power BI Blog to easily keep track of what's new.

                                  • Link to Power BI Visuals on AppStore of Microsoft

                                    I want a Link to Power BI Visuals on AppStore of Microsoft at Power BI web site.
                                    for share with customers/friends

                                    Currently, there are not a Link to Power BI Visuals web site.
                                    So, I need the Link by searching web, each time

                                    and now, there are over 100 Power BI visuals, extremally valuable.

                                    • printing whole reports versus screen shotting partial reports

                                      Exporting to pdf is not more useful than exporting to powerpoint if we just get a screen shot. We have to use Tableau and other products because we can't print power bi reports. It's hard to justify keeping power bi if we can't print whole reports that who all the data in a table visual.

                                      • Add a notes section to Power BI Desktop

                                        When creating multiple BI reports it is often useful to refer back to a "How To" or a "notes" section which describes what you have actually done. I currently keep track using OneNote - but being able to add notes directly to the BI Desktop ensures whoever edits the .pbix file can hit the ground running. (Think of notes in PowerPoint etc..)
