    • The shared dashboard email from the service should have a link to an intro video

      The email that is generated from Power BI when someone shares a dashboard should include a link to a short video on how to navigate the service aimed at end users of the service e.g. “First time user? Find out how to get the most out of Power BI”. We certainly had several users who have
      • Not realised the reports have multiple tabs
      • Not realised they can drill through from the dashboard to reports
      • Don’t know about the “drill down” functionality
      • Struggle with filters
      • Won’t realise they can now drill through
      • Don’t know they…

      • Merge ideas on ideas forum

        I find the idea forum is loaded with duplicates of ideas where votes and comments are split between multiple threads.
        It would be useful if the community could propose a merger with other ideas on the forum (with the link) and then admins could merge the ideas and remove the duplicates.

        I think this would make it easier for Microsoft to gain a clearer idea of what users want. And for users would help their ideas to gain a common thread of conversation, plus gain a stronger voice for the ideas they want.

        • Export visual as picture

          Having the ability to copy a visual (with applied highlighting) to paste into other applications would allow for reports to be written with narrative around each visual.

          If pasted into a Microsoft office application it could carry the link back to the relevant report (if permissions allowed) with the filters that feed the visual, essentially a bookmark link.

          Would be great if this would include all of the visual, rather than just what is displayed on screen, for example a matrix with all the rows. (Should also apply for printing)
          Could wrap the picture in a power bi branded frame…

          • Trial test for Power BI Premium

            There should be a trial test for Power BI Premium. At least limited to only one workgroup, and only 1GB per dataset as it is for Power BI PRO. This way we can test its capacity and way to interact with Power BI Service and SQL Reporting Services (SSRS).

            • "Copy to workspace" functionality for Apps

              Currently it seems that it's impossible for end-users to access the dataset in Power BI - only in Excel! That's kinda crazy - please enable similar "copy to workspace" functionality as content packs.
              In particular, it should be possible for users to copy a report from an App and customize it - we need this for several use cases.

              • Export to Powerpoint with filters

                We need the ability to export with current filters selected. Without this capability the export function is limited. Export to Adobe with preselected filter without having to save the report would work as well.

                • Mention someone in comment to send email/chat linking back to specific visual/bookmark

                  It would be super helpful to be able to mention someone in a comment to send an email and/or Teams chat notification with a link back to the specific report visual/bookmark.

                  Please also try and align this user experience with Excel and across Office 365.

                  • Allow admins to control which users' identities are exposed in per-user usage metrics

                    Usage metrics now expose per-user information - i.e. the names of the users that are accessing dashboards and reports.

                    Allow admins control which users' names and info are picked up by the feature. In other words, admins can choose to "anonymize" certain sets of users so that their names do not appear in usage metrics.

                    • BRING BACK CUSTOM VISUALS FOR PEOPLE WITHOUT PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTS

                      Due to current data security considerations, it is not possible for people in my office to sign in to Power BI, since it also includes the Power BI Service. This didn't cause any major problems with learning how to use Power BI, as we could enjoy all the Desktop features. With the custom visuals now off limits to those without the professional account, however, we are limited to whatever comes out of the box. Please switch back the ability to download custom visuals without signing in.

                      • Can't sign up with my outlook.com work email address. Can't test, so won't recommend PowerBI to clients. Tableau instead. Your loss, sorry.

                        Microsoft, lots of us solo preneurs drive adoption. Ridiculous that I can't sign up with my only work email address of outlook.com. No wonder my clients have never even heard of Power BI. I drive many Tableau implementations, and would have liked to compare with Power BI. If it's good, I'd recommend it. But I would never recommend or even mention something that I haven't tested end to end. Thus, Power BI will not even be in the conversation with my clients because I can't sign up for an account. Foolish, artificial barrier that ends up hurting you.

                        • ArcGIS maps to be located in Power BI tenant's geographic location (e.g. Canada)

                          Due to our company's privacy policies we need to ensure that ArcGIS maps are located and stored in the national cloud instance, in our case it's Canada. Can we expect this service any time soon?

                          • publish content packs and apps permission to apply to all apps

                            it looks like there's a new tenant level setting "Publish Content Packs and Apps to the Entire Organization" - but it only works if the app is published to the entire organisation. Can you please make this apply to all apps, regardless of which groups (or not) they're published to? Most of my clients' apps are published to specific groups, which is probably the way more common use case.

                            • External Guest Users - Limited # of Free Licenses

                              I think the feature that expands access for external guest users is great especially when I found it worked with RLS. My suggestion to help adoption is to give tenants free Pro licenses to assign to guest users. It would provide a viral way to introduce Power BI in other organizations. You can do something along the lines of you get 1 free guest Pro license for every 10 Pro Licenses you subscribe to.

                              • Organize Apps - folders, categories, sort by name, author, data source

                                Our apps are getting messy. We need to have a way to organize the apps into folders. I'd like to be able to assign them categories like engineering, sales, etc. I'd also like to be able to sort apps by name, author, and data source in a list instead of the big squares.

                                • Organizational Governance of User Capabilities and Content

                                  Administrators need a way to manage numerous key aspects of Power BI.
                                  Creating an App from a workspace and sharing that application to the entire organization is great. However, it requires all users to have access to Power BI. As much as we would like our users to use Power BI correctly without any centralized governance it is not practical.
                                  Users should be able to view apps/reports/dashboards shared with them but Administrators should be able to:
                                  1) Control who can create an artifact in Power BI (even within their "My Workspace")
                                  2) View and manage (delete, move, rename, etc) all…

                                  • Friendly query list when connecting to SAP BW

                                    When users connect to a SAP BW data source they are presented with the SAP BW back-end InfoArea hierarchy. This is highly technical in nature and often not primarily designed to be user facing but instead used to manage layered data architectures, security, etc.

                                    Given this, it would be desirable to be able to present an alternative information architecture; a curated, more user friendly layout of queries that are meaningful for analysis in Power BI.

                                    Without such a friendly, understandable structure – there can be difficulty in a user finding information and hence potential adoption issues for BW data sources.…

                                    • We need a Power BI Personal for non-commercial use

                                      Would love to be able to use Power BI to display personal data and reports to friends and family. I think this would be a great way to showcase the product and would enable those without a corporate Power BI to get started.

                                      • User Flow for Usage Reports

                                        I would like to know the user flow of each user using the report. Basically, to know in what sequence they use the report, to understand the story/questions the user is looking for.

                                        If you can provide the above at tile level instead of page level it would be mindblowing!!

                                        • Providing links to visuals.To be able to link text to visuals in Power BI.

                                          If we can provide hyperlink to text in Power BI. Hyperlink should take us to to the visual whose link is provided. It will be great if we can get this feature.
