  1. Allow viewers to rate dashboard/reports (feedback for creators)

    I personally struggle a lot of times trying to understand the relevance of a dashboard or how up-to-date it is. Especially in large organizations, there are a myriad of boards and it easy to get lost.

    Idea: Enable reviewers/visitors to rate dashboard based on relevance and information provided - similar to the GitHub star rating or Amazon product rating.

    In short: A feedback system for the creator.

  2. unable to sign in withour work email

    I'm a stay at home a caregiver and I'm updating my skills to get to work. Power BI would be a great addition to my experience and and will look great on my resume. I cannot sign in without a work or school address. Not very helpful for those who are trying to get back to work.

  3. Allow users to still get to their data after 6 months.

    Support hasn't been able to figure out why my company email as account sign in no longer works after using the desktop and powerbi.com site for over 6 months. It would be really beneficial if customers could trust that they can still get to their data after signing up for Power BI service. That way they can do their job of analyzing data using this tool. Seems like this "feature" would really help in user adoption.

  4. Need ability to direct users to corporate links for info, training, support

    Corporations need to be able to redirect their users to corporate links for Power BI info, training and support.

    The Power BI Admin should have the ability to specify URLs to direct their Power BI users to corporate resources (URLs) for:

    a.  Training
    
    b. Support
    c. General guidance and info

    These links should be easily distinguished from the Power BI public support, training and portals. The Power BI Admin should be able to set:

    a.  Show tenant specific links only
    
    b. Show both tenant specific and Power BI public

  8. Enable scheduling for subscription on PBI Reports

    Lately, users have been given the ability to subscribe to any PBI report of their choice. With the 2018 Oct update, it will also be possible to subscribe others, which is already of great use. However, it isn't possible to adapt the frequency on which users receive an update of their subscribed to PBI report as this is default set at source refresh. Especially for live connections, it would be very helpful to manage the schedule on which PBI reports will be distributed to their subscribers.

  9. Powerpoint export template and User's selection of views

    There have been a few suggestions or ideas, to have an ability to change the powerpoint template.

    I would also suggest the ability to (multi) select one or more views from the Power BI dashboard or reports, and then exporting them to Powerpoint.
    We are creating series of reports and dashboards, meant not only for different user groups but also aimed at different processes or different business objectives. Exporting all of them to powerpoint may not offer much utility.
    If the user can check or tick off the views he/she wants to export, depending on the nature of business objective…

    I'd like my staff and colleagues to be able to set Power Bi as their Start Page when logging on to Office 365. This will support adoption, but importantly support our effort to get people managing through data.

  12. Use F4 to copy last action same as other MS products

    The users of MS products frequently hit the F4 to make the software apply the latest action performed (change format, add, delete, etc.)

  13. Formulas and functions

    In PowerBI/DAX you need to type out all…

    In Excel you can search/select a formula and then simply add/insert/modify the details (cell, columns, numbers etc.) in a submenu. This is much nicer than typing [,:;( in a specific order (DAX) which is too difficult to understand for everyone.

    If formulas/functions can be entered like in Excel, will be loved by many people I assume.

  14. Change font for tile or improve security level of PBI online

    Currently Cross Site Scripting (CSS) is needed to display the font of tiles' options icon correctly in Internet Explorer 11 (which most of our customers use). Since CSS is blocked, the options icon of tiles is displayed as chinese signs.
    The font should be loaded via Script e.g. instead of via CSS.

  16. Right clicking a standard visual should display a link to its Microsoft description page

    In teaching new users about visuals, I often find myself sharing link after link to explain how something works. Users are hesitant to try things at first. It would be great if right clicking the standard visualizations showed links to the Microsoft page associated with it

    Making it simple to see what they do will help me to demystify visualizations.

  17. 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…

  18. Provide sample pbix files for newly released key features

    The key features are great but sometimes it is hard to create a sample report in power bi to showcase the feature. It would be helpful to have the files being used in the videos or sample pbix to test and showcase the features.
