  1. Hyperlink Data Category

    Add a "Hyperlink" Category so that PowerBI displays it as a link no matter what protocol or text is in the cell. It does this automatically for "http://" but not for other protocols.

  2. Divide by Zero is incorrect

    Division by zero in formulae for measures or calculated columns displays a result of "Infinity". This is incorrect. Division by zero is undefined or indeterminate.

  3. Show an upload error message when the file is locked

    PBIX files cannot be uploaded to a workspace when they're open on the desktop. However, there is no error message saying so, which causes a great deal of confusion. If possible, it would help to receive a message warning the user to close the local copy and re-try the upload.

  6. Can Power BI incorporates existing excel user interface into its data view mode ?

    POWER BI user interface can be designed together with add-in like data analysis toolpack. It is more user friendly to have user interface of data view similar to EXCEL to enhance the data analytics component , it helps Power BI to entice excel user to switch into power BI.

  7. Summarize group purpose

    Displaying groups: a description of the purpose of the group would be helpful. Helps answer the question "should I ask to have so-and-so added or not?"

  10. Three Levels of Access Control

    At present you are either an ADMINISTRATOR or a CONSUMER.

    A middle level of access, such as AUTHOR, that could create content and publish to a designated group would make the ability to better manage dashboard content:

    - ADMINISTRATOR
    Can do everything (god)

    - AUTHOR
    Can do anything Dashboard related, with no access to add, remove or allocate users to content groups.

    - CONSUMER
    Can only access defined dashboards and not manipulate data source query. Has the ability to manage current cube data set and visualisation.

  11. RLS crashing PBI Desktop

    RLS preview crashes PBI Desktop.
    After entering a DAX query for a role and saving it, performing just about any other function (other than saving the PBIX) causes PBI Desktop to throw an error. After which, the PBIX file can't be saved.

  12. Automate the updates the same as Office365

    Just wondering whether at some stage updates will be the same as all other Office 365 updates, as having to remind users to manually install to get new features is painful. Then it would be consistent with all the other products :)

  13. This site requires only Email to sign in (security issue)

    I am able to sign in to this site with any other email( of any person). This is totally wrong. Although Power BI Online requires SSO validation but here just an email is enough to sign in.
    What if any person post something on behalf of some other person?

  14. Stable Performance

    Stable performance. Please, please, please make stable performance the main focus. If we have to wait over a minute for data to pivot, or have to close and re-open the tool to get data visualizations to not error out then additional features beyond this are pointless.

  17. Label designating content pack as 3rd party or Microsoft

    Could it be possible to add a label on either the icon, or within the description of the available content packs indicating that they are either from a 3rd party or from Microsoft itself?

    This will help to avoid some confusion for connecting to some of these, for example, Office365Mon.

  18. Click and Open a Software

    If I am analysing data and wanted to see a certain sales order information straight from an OLTP application,
    I think I can add the Button on the report. What I'm not sure is if I click on the Button will PowerBI take me to the OLTP application and straight into the certain Sales Order that I'm interested in.

  19. some general questions

    Hi every one,
    Im new to PBI and I have some questions for which I didnt find solutions. I hope to find here some helpy ideas.
    1 - as developper, how can I develop some dashboards (in PBI desktop) that can be deployed on an other server (client server) ?
    2 - why PBI desktop (my case !) cant connect in live to my ssas cube without error code or any thing in the same time that can connect in import data mode ?

    Thanks

  20. Change Request - Use the PrimarySmtpAddress of a user for notifications instead of the UserPrincipalName

    The users in one of our forests all have accounts where the UserPrincipalName does not match the PrimarySmtpAddress. While we would have liked to have all UPNs match the PrimarySmtpAddress we couldn't because we had to consider domain suffix routing issues as well. Users in this forest have the following configuration:
    • UserPrincipalName: jdoe@corp.company1.net
    • PrimarySmtpAddress: john.doe@company.com
    When a user, like the one above, has a SQL data refresh configured to send a failure notification via email the notification is being sent to the UPN - jdoe@corp.company1.net. This fails because the domain of the UPN (corp.company1.net) is not configured…
