  1. Enable Image for empty files

    I would like the insert image function in power bi desktop to be enabled without having data inserted. I wish to make templates for reports for categories with their own image logo in the corner. In my opinion text and shapes could be enabled too.

  3. Switch between roles

    Hi,

    There is a User who has two roles. The access to these roles are maintained in a table which has all the dimensions as columns. For example if a User is a Geography Head, Geo_Id column will have that particular geography's code against the user.
    In our scenario the user is both Geography Head and also Vertical Head, and Geography code and Vertical code are populated against the user in the table. When we do Row level security, the data is fetched as a combination of Geography and Vertical, but the user should be able to see the whole…

  4. Remove the request to enter PII when downloading client

    When downloading the client from PBI site, it always requests you to submit your PII making it seem like it's needed to be entered to download the client. It's misleading and unnecessary. This request should be removed or done in a different manner

  7. Cortana not working for one specfifc test case whereas works for others.

    I have an imported dataset and a list of test cases which is added as a page-level filter for a Cortana specific designed page.
    Let us call the test cases as testcase1, testcase2 and testcase3.
    When I do a cortana search "Test Cortana page for testcase1", "Test Cortana page for testcase3", it works fine. Whereas when I search it for testcase2, i.e. "Test Cortana page for testcase2", nothing comes up. In QnA testcase2 works just fine. Any suggestions.

  12. pin report/dashbaord to start screen like a contact or website

    It would be great if a report or dashboard could be pinned to the WIN10 start screen so that users could go directly to it. It would function the same way pinning a contact or website currently functions.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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?"

  20. 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.
