Export / Print Reports from web to Power Point62 votes
Having a pbi streaming data set (with history) with a column of type datetime (filled by a stream analytics output). Power BI Portal Language is set to "German". But display in pbi report table is still in format: mm/dd/yyyy. What I need is: dd/mm/yyyy. I don't see any possiblity get the desired date format based on a streaming dataset? (Content in the colum of the datetime looks like: "2016-12-05T16:27:27.926Z")
To be able to set a locale in a Report or Dashboard like in SSRS would be handy but any other solution to the described problem is very welcome!42 votes
Power BI publish is a very good option for sharing rapidly reports specialy with people who doen't have PBI or never heard of it. But the acces to report must be password protected to secure the data.25 votes
Disable/hide visual borders when hovered over, atleast in full screen mode. It makes the UI look pretty untidy.24 votes
All user activities in Power BI should be logged for auditing purposes, including datasets accessed, reports/dashboards accessed, data exports performed. Data should be available to report/dashboard owner and not just Power BI administrators. The audit data should be accessible as a dataset to build reports against as well as easily exportable / downloadable.17 votes
It would be handy to have the ability to work on PBIX files with very large datasets locally and then upload them elsewhere without including all the data - just the definitions.
Once uploaded you would obviously need to refresh the data but this would be much more efficient - particularly when using asymmetric network connections with slow up speeds.16 votes
I want to be able to assign all users (including new ones) to a default role in RLS. Currently I have to assign each user to the role manually, and update the roles manually when users change.
This limits the ability to use RLS with a larger user base.16 votes
The basic Slicer in power bi already has a search feature. My request is to add a way to select all search results in one click. For example, say I search a text column in the slicer for all values with "ipad" and I get 200+ results returned in the slicer. It would be super helpful if you could select all 200+ results in one click since selecting one-by-one is so tedious.14 votes
This is with regards to the new Export to PowerPoint Feature.
We would like to have this automated.
For instance, every 30th, a background job should kick in and automatically, generate the PowerPoint slides of certain Power BI Dashboards or Reports and save it in a folder or send it as an e-mail to a few people. This will be a great feature. Let us know.
Is this possible?
Can we achieve this?13 votes
Power BI is a quick on the Go tool. But some companies still do not trust the "in the Cloud" concept. Is their a way that you can host Power BI completely on a companies internal env.? With onsite Hosting server on premises?13 votes
At some point in the last month, all the slicers my team has in Power BI online were reformatted, removing the line under the slicer title. This makes the slicers aesthetically less pleasing and also more difficult to read. It would be nice to have the slicers online look the way they do in the desktop version again.12 votes
New Workspace roles is needed. It would be nice to be able to distinguish between Administrator , dataset admin, report and dashboard admin
besides the Admin and Reader member role, it would be great in addition to the two mentioned roles to have a dataset admin and a report and dashboard admin.
the dataset admin should be able to control the dataset and download the .pbix file and edit it.
the report admin should only be able create and alter reports and dashboards, but should not be able to download the pbix. file12 votes
If I export a column with the time format to CSV, the time becomes a datetime field. A workaround is to rename the column and create a new calculated column with an explicit format function, but this creates extra unnecessary data and columns.

With the increasing user base for PowerBI, it would be nice to capture below details in the audit logs for better management.
* Session log in timestamp
* Session close/log out timestamp
* Location of the User
* Session duration
* User actions on the dashboard like actions on slicers, page visits, page filters, report filters, data exports, time spent on each page etc.,10 votes
PowerBI should also treat other protocols as a hyperlink not just ones that start with "http://"
Maybe there should be a "Protocol" or "Hyperlink" Data Category9 votes
I really liked the old voting system where you could give three votes to the same suggestion in the Power BI forum. In fact, I think it was perfect. The new system just doesn't give the same feeling of actually being able to impact the way Power BI is evolving.8 votes
It would be nice if there was the possibility to create customized buttons in a report. These buttons can be used as a shortcut to an other report page.
It would also be nice to make this possibilty on visuals (e.g. if you click on a visual you 'll be forwarded towards a report page which contains a detailed static table/matrix about the specific data the visual was providing.8 votes
The header or handle above a textbox should not take up extra vertical space like every visual. This extra vertical space makes it difficult to use textboxes as labels throughout the page. Consider a report page with a lot of visuals that have been meticulously positioned and aligned along with textboxes for labels, each having extra white space above them. Overlapping multiple visuals is cumbersome and confusing for users.
If I need to add a title in the top of the page, the space above the textbox is wasted.7 votes
