  2. Expanding the Power BI APP screen.

    On a Personal Computer or MAC the user van expand the Power BI screen, but NOT on the APP. Please add the same functionalities to the Power BI APP. Without the Expanding functionalities the Power BI APP is basically useless because the data info is too small and it’s impossible to read it.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

  3. Shared Datasets: Save as to a workspace besides My Workspace

    I LOVE Shared Datasets. It would be great if we could save as a report from one Workspace to Another. This would enable departments to make official reports their own by customizing them for their own (shared) purposes.

  6. 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.

  7. Enable complete off line dashboard / report capability for Power BI app on mobile device

    While PowerBI has provided very friendly user interface through PowerBI app, our organization has a strong need to bring power BI app to equip the full sync of the report onto mobile device mainly because many positions in the organization is mobile, and people often use the transition opportunity to conduct analysis. In addition, we have customers that our sales reps visit located in the area where network is not sufficient to run the report on-line

  9. Sharing bookmarks with team members

    I want to share a bookmark of a report so when the team member gets the link they can open the same report with the same filters. See the same thing I am seeing. Can this be done?

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. I suggest Microsoft should split the Power BI Pro license in Two

    I suggest Microsoft should split the Power BI Pro license in Two:
    Power BI Pro Author : 9.99 $/user/month (can read/write/share reports and dashboards)
    Power BI Pro Reader : *.** $/user/month (can only read reports and dashboards)

    If you are agree? Please Vote.

  18. Use Power BI Service as a 'Linked Server' (to use it in SSRS / KPI Snapshots / ... )

    It would be of added value if the 'Power BI Service' can be added as a 'Linked Server' in SQL Server.
    This would enable SSRS report builders to use it as a datasource and to build SSRS reports on it (= using DAX in OPENQUERY modus in SQL Statements). Additionally, also snapshots of measures can be saved in SQL Server.

    Background info: I have already build countless of reports in SSRS using Analysis Services as a source (both using the SSAS connection as well as using OpenQuery). One of the advantage is that you can join the result of multiple…

  19. 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…

  20. Alert to users when a new report/dashboard have been publish

    Same as your banner where you notified to us every update on the mobile app "What's new"; How about to have a banner (on the web version) "What's new in this App"? but from analysts/report developers to managers.

    In other words, every time we 'Update app' from the Workspace, the users would know what reports and/or dashboards are new.
