  1. See Tableau and bridge the gaps

    Accept that Tableau did it first and until further notice, does it best, but all in this forum have a loyalty to Microsoft based on a love of service, the suite as a whole, the continual upgrades in product, or something else altogether.

    The Planner isn't Trello (Google) - but some of us are making it work.

    OneDrive & TeamGroups aren't GoogleDrive - but I still migrated my company away from Google within 5 months of employment.

    Skype for Business isn't Hangouts, Messenger, etc.

    And the Surface, of which I'm working on right now - and LOVE - frankly isn't…

  2. Search SSAS/Azure AS descriptions within Power BI

    Allowing for searching the SSAS descriptions would allow for a much broader range of keywords to be linked to a single attribute/feature. This would for example allow for SAP fields to be found on their technical name as well as on their business name. It would also allow for broader use of a single data model as it would allow for more people with a different view to achieve self-service bi trough the same data model.

  3. Disable CTRL clicking a filter if the filter is set to single mode

    We have found that if you set a filter to be single select the user is able to use the CTRL key and select multiples. This seems like it should not be allowed. We have a DAX calc that needs to use the filter and can only handle one value selected, so since the system allows multi-select when we configured single it breaks our report.

  4. Content pack sorting of published to list

    It would be good to have the list of email addresses a content pack is published to sorted alphabetically.
    When a content pack is shared with many people/email addresses (potentially hundreds or more), it can be quite difficult to review the list when it is displayed in the order the addresses were added.

  6. Power BI Desktop Power Query Colors - can they be changed to a white background (like in PQ for Excel)?

    Call me silly, but the dark grey background in Power BI Power Query is not very friendly.

    Can the colors be changed to white, like in Power Query for Excel?

  8. Custom Push Notifications

    I noticed today there is a new notification indicating that a new Dashboard in a Day training is available. Would be great to push custom written notifications to select users, groups, etc. enabled on select dashboards, reports, etc.

  11. Number of points on Esri (ArcGIS) map

    The maximum number of points on a map (10000) is too limiting, I really need to show 13000 points. It should be possible to change the limit by the user.

    For example, I think for heat map the number of allowed points could be higher than for separate points having tooltips.

    Also, if the user marks a sub-area on the plot that contains less than 10000 points, not all points are necessarily shown there.

  16. Customized buttons

    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.

  19. Office 365 Role - Power BI Report Publisher - with the ability for the user to publish & maintain reports in groups they are not a member of

    I would like to propose a new Office 365 role - a "Power BI Report Publisher" role or something similar (in the same way there is a Power BI Service Administrator role), that gives the user the ability to publish reports to groups they are not a member of, and also the ability to maintain/manage them.

    My reasoning for this is that the people providing/developing/maintaining reports are not necessarily members of the groups they need to publish to. We are creating and maintaining reports for various groups of users across our organisation, but I don't want to (and shouldn't need…

  20. Diffrent Combo-Chart Legend Icons to be dependant if its on the column or line (mock up included)

    Right now the bullet icons represent colour but it's not instantly clear which values for which part of the chart. This would be most beneficial in combo charts.

    To better articulate my idea, here is a mock up:
