  1. export data that contains link elements do not work

    Exporting data just works great; however, if the data view contains a link/href the excel with data is not created.

    Please help me on this, as it's important for users adopt this great technology.

    Thank you.

  3. "Read" users of a O365 group should have "read" access to Power BI content available on the corresponding workspace

    Currently, only "members" of a Office 365 group are able to consume/edit the PowerBI reports we publish to the corresponding SharePoint site.
    However, we'd like "Visitors" with just "read" access to also be able to consume the reports.

  6. Replace dax with an easier more intuitive language

    Replace DAX with an easier more intuitive language that's quicker to code. Power BI language and user experience is meant to be self-service and easy to use and supposedly easier than Excel. But eh underlying DAX language is not easy to code. More complex measures that should take quick to code require more effort than SSRS or Tableau or any other language that I know of to get to the same result. Surely an easier and better language can be developed. Replace it with a tableau or SSRS -type scripting language that obviously still uses the current context etc, but…

  7. Groupwise archive data migration into Microsoft Outlook

    The perfect way to export archive data or public folders from Groupwise mailing server to Microsoft Outlook client is using the third-party tool which quickly exports your mailboxes, including archive data directly into Outlook PST. Many users confused how they perform an easier and effective conversion from Groupwise to Microsoft Outlook, Those users who are not good in the technical term I suggest them use any third party tool like Shoviv Groupwise to Outlook converter that easily converts your mailboxes into Outlook PST format without any critical issue.

  9. Convert Tableau reports to Power BI reports

    Yes, Power BI has been able to do even more than what other competitors can offer. But when considering to use Power BI, we do hope there is a quick tool at least can help us automatically convert 80% tableau reports to POwer BI Reports. Thus, it can save us tons of time. Otherwise, most of tableau customers have to stay with it.

  10. Email Format Improvements or Ability to Modify

    I need the ability to modify the email format that gets sent through subscriptions. The size of the image in the email is far too small to be legible in an email window (both on phone and desktop), and prevents us from using subscriptions to fully automate our reporting. This is the biggest drawback to adoption that I face today. Execs don't like the small print or the thick Microsoft borders, which combined require them to open the attachment to read what is supposed to be a quick flash of data for them. It would be great if we had…

  11. Support for Google Tag Manager to track report usage

    We'd love to get more insight as to how (and if) our users are actually using and interacting with our reports. We looked into the JavaScript event model that embedding gives us, but it's quite limited and doesn't really give us what we need.

    For example, if we wanted to know how many users as choosing the "Export Data" menu item on reports, we have no way of doing this with current functionality.

    So, what would be great is if we could configure a Google Tag Manager container ID at the PBI account level. Then, when reports get rendered, PBI…

    Creating MS Team in-turn create the Power BI work-space which is turing to be out of control for the Power BI admin & the organisation.
    Please ensure to enable some setting to bring this control & avoid creating work-space from teams when not required.

  13. Make creating Power BI excel workbooks intuitive

    I a pretty technical user but have never been able to get a Excel workbook to update date when loaded to Power BI,

    Using the analyze in excel feature:
    Nope, update not allowed.

    Saving a file in Sharepoint:
    Nope, can't load to a group.

    Creating the file online from a report or dataset:
    Refresh not supported

    I know it's possible, but the secret way that the excel spreadsheet need to be configured is not obvious.

    I have tried an given up more times than I can count.

    Perhaps there is a document that describes the steps, but it's lost in…

  14. Enable the use of Bookmarks in the Table/Matrix Visuals

    Most users would generally like to export their entire report into PDF/PPT. Using the URL method limits the ability to export the entire report at once. Since it opens every report in a new page.
    It would be so useful to have the ability for the URLs to act like BOOKMARKS so that navigation within the Report is dynamic and there can be a central landing page. Also, this will avoid creating static landing pages (example -for every Country/Region if the table/matrix visual) . So in my example, I have 7 reports and each of these 7 reports are viewed…

  15. 3rd party connection to Power BI Service Visual as a Data Source

    In my company, the BI team uses SAP Analytics cloud and BOBJ. I built all of my datasets in Power BI. I work with sensitive information that the BI team is not privileged to see. It would be great if I could share a Power BI service visual URL to the BI that could be used as a refreshable data source in their BOBJ models. The visual would return the same data that you get if you export the data in Excel. It would just be simply something that could be grabbed via a query and loaded into a 3rd…

  16. About the Display Number of Microsoft 365 Usage Analytics Content Pack

    In the "Microsoft 365 Usage Analytics Content Pack", only 3,000 data are displayed.
    For example, tenants with 10,000 users can not obtain sufficient data, so they want an optional function that can increase the number of displayed data.

  17. Track usage when models are accessed using the Power BI Publisher Excel add-in

    Many of our users like to connect to Power BI models from within Excel using the Power BI Publisher Excel Add-in, but unfortunately, we lose all visibility on the true usage of Power BI.... It would be great to be able to track the number of connections each user makes to a report using the add-in. Thanks!

  19. Updating multiple workspaces keeping parameters the same

    We have multiple reports with more or less the same queries running. The difference is each report uses different parameters. When we're making a significant change to the reports, this requires then to be done in each report (or adjust each parameter in the correct version). Make it possible to update multiple reports by publishing this in multiple workspaces (but keep the existing parameters the same). This way version control on multiple reports is manageable and new functionalities can be added easily.
