  2. Grammatical mistake on main page

    You might have a grammatical mistake on the main page of Power BI.. towards the end. I am not sure if Analyses is written with an E or with an I as Analysis. Here's the text:

    Linking data for analyses was something we couldn’t do before. With Power BI, it’s simple. Power BI makes the hard things easy. Everything becomes possible.

  3. Allow users to assist in Ideas forum moderation

    There is a lot of old / duplicate content in the Ideas forum. Some should have been closed out a year ago, and others are duplicates with slightly different explanations. I would love to help recommend statuses for some of these ideas in order to clean up the forum.

    You can Now edit the Min and Max values on the Scatter Chart Axis , but it will not allow you to enter a Decimal !. Not very Good if you are using % or Long LAt

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?"

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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 :)

  17. 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?

  18. 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.
