  6. Stop calling them apps

    Is it possible to stop calling the published collections of reports, dashboards, and datasets in Power BI "apps"? They're not apps, and it's confusing to have both "apps" from Power Apps and "apps" from Power BI when they have wildly different functions.

  7. Save to Office 365

    When creating reports in Power BI with a team, we want to save the original file to a place in Office 365. For example a SharePoint site. When saving the document (or save as), Power BI shows only the available drives in Explorer. Please add options to save to SharePoint or other connected services, like Office 2016 has.

  8. Audit Log

    Would be great if audit log is more comprehensive and easily display the data. My input specifically are
    - to have a column of media used to access the dashboard
    - to show the account used to access the dashboard specifically, as currently I found many users are acknowledged as Free Users without the specific account names, both internal or external users. And I believe this is not defined as users with Free license, since there are some of Free users' account names are displayed specifically in the UserIds column.

  9. arcgis filter area

    ArcGIS visuals should allow filtering by any area displayed in the map - country, state, county, census block, etc., as well as any metadata associated with those divisions. Metadata associated with those areas should be made available for calculations, too, so that I can construct filters based on them. For example, I might want to look at all data points in census blocks with a population of more than 1 million.

I was unable to troubleshoot the issue and error message was not detailed enough.

  11. FIX Table issue

    This is a bug report.
    The Table visualization doesn't show all individual columns in the Format tab when you have too many columns.
    I have a Table set up with 109 columns. I need to change the format of the columns to the far left but they don't show in the combobox because it doesn't have a scroll bar and the list doesn't fit on the screen.

  15. Option to hide reports in Apps

    When publishing an app for access my a larger group I would like the ability to decide whether they can view the reports or not. For some users I only want them to have access to the dashboard in apps and not the actual report.

  17. Custom Color Preview

    When selecting from the custom color box it would be nice to see a visual preview of what color my mouse is hovering over. It is quite difficult to see exactly what color I'm selecting until after you've already selected it.

  18. Change "Date display format" in PBI Service when language is english (from 12/31/2017 to 31/12/2017)

    I would like to be able to see dates as 31/12/2017 (or with "-") instead of 12/31/2017 when I have selected english as the language in Power BI Service. i.e. I would like the day to be displayed first .

    I know I can change the language to danish, and then I will see it as 31/12/2017. But then all text is in danish, and I do not want this when we are an international company.

    I would like to have a settting similar to my settings within power bi community (my profile), here you can set your prefered method.

  19. Visual confirmation that table relationships are active

    It would be great if there were a visual way to tell if the relationships between tables are active. This way, users don't have to double click each relationship line to look for active relationships.
