  1. User Search - a way to see which workspaces a user is enrolled in

    It would be nice to be able to search by any particular user in the org and see which workspaces they are assigned to.

  2. 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.

  3. Integrate Power BI Desktop & SSAS Tabular to one developement tool

    As a Self Service BI Manager - Working With a lot of client/enterprises - in my experience -
    Power bi desktop 10 times advanced then ssas tabular
    with the "m" functionality an a lot of advanced features

    that ssas tabular missing - or - more complicated to maintain the same functionality.
    Way so - it should be more advanced developing work space - like power bi desktop - for large scales of data - that is the real :next generation of BI !!!!

  6. Allow *FREE* Email Subscriptions for content hosted in Premium capacity

    Please allow email notifications to be free for consumers of content hosted on Premium capacity. We bought Premium capacity to communicate to our external partners, but right now if they want to subscribe to updates, they each need to buy a Pro license. This will inhibit our ability to drive adoption with our partners, and ultimately, may even hinder our ability scale this internally.

  7. Pass-Thru Authentication for O365

    Allow pass through authentication for PowerBI to your PowerBI Tenant. Even though PowerBI is part of the O365 stack it has a separate authentication layer. This causes problem when attempting to use O365 content in PowerBI reports. Specifically images that they user normally would have access to don't work until the user manually connect to either Sharepoint Online or Devle

  11. 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.

  13. Improve Default Visuals

    Power BI has been out for awhile now and, while it's great that Vertipaq and M engine have dedicated resources, there appears to be little love for improving the default visuals. There are still many giant gaps missing from almost every one of them.

    This failure to address the visual aspect of PBI is what's preventing the Tableau and Qlik communities from jumping ship. Their response is ALWAYS, "the visuals can do 80% of what I need but it's missing the other 20%". Unfortunately this missing 20% cannot be "hacked" like it can be Tableau - if it's not an…

  14. Overwrite a locally published .pbix file with one in one drive

    We have a lot of .Pbix files that were published locally to the service. We now want to move to saving these files in One drive for business and use the version control and sync functions. But when I attempt to overwrite the file by using the get data option it creates a copy rather then asking if I want the option to overwrite. As you can imagine if we have dashboards created off these reports I do not really want to have to recreate all these.

  15. Rename "Print" in Power BI service to "Print Screenshot"

    Lack of real printing is hurting adoption. Microsoft ignores this issue and keeps delivering features that a very tiny minority of users want/need. Printing affects everybody. Not everybody walks around with a fully charged laptop / tablet all day. FIX PRINTING NOW AND BURY TABLEAU FOREVER! Or don't

  16. 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!!

  18. 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…

  19. 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.
