  1. 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

  3. Add 3PP LOB to boomTnL

    3PP isn't currently in boomTnL. The 3PP team runs approximately 5 tests a month and we need to manually track each TnL in Omniture.

  4. Migrate legacy Spotfire dashboards to Power BI

    It would be excellent if Microsoft could provide a mechanism to migrate legacy dashboards, libraries and data connections from Spotfire to Power BI. This would help individuals, teams and organisations that have chosen Power BI to be their preferred BI tool to reduce the pain, time and effort of having to rebuild dashboards from scratch. Additional support for other popular data analytics tools such Tableau would be useful.

  5. 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…

  6. Reporting on inactive users

    Our primary focus is on users that are NOT using the features including Office PP licensed users that are not activated, etc. It seems very painful to identify users that are NOT active.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. KPI visual to display time-based KPIs

    In my organisation there are several KPIs (SLAs) which are based on average time (mean time to resolve/mean time to dispatch). The current KPI visualisations allow me to insert any measures that are a number or a percentage, however, I cannot build a visualisation based on time (if the average time is higher than the target time then mark it red, otherwise mark it green).

    It would be great if that option would be enabled!

  12. "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.

  13. Enable granular permissions for Power BI service tenant level settings

    Allow granular permissions ( using Azure AD users and groups ) for the following tenant settings;

    Publish to web
    Allow sharing content to external users

    Both of these service settings when enabled are not audited for free users of the service ( the event is logged but the user name is not included) and both settings could have damaging consequences if not used correctly.

  15. 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.

  17. Search Box in Workspace Pane for New User Interface

    There should be a search box in the Switch Workspaces navigation pane for the new user interface. For admin users like myself that have a lot of workspaces this would help.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
