    • Customize e-mail template and alert notifications

      Customize e-mail template and alert notifications. I believe that this feature in addition to bringing the visual benefit (text and design) would bring the possibility of translation into languages in which Power BI would not yet be available.

      • PowerPoint export template

        When exporting to PowerPoint, it would be great if the PowerPoint template could be changed. Perhaps possibility to change standard template by tenant / app workspace or something like that? When we have some corporate standard reports we really need to use the company standard template before redistributing exported reports.

            • groups

              Support O365 Groups for security when using Apps. You can add O365 groups to the workplaces for an app...however, when you publish an app you can't add groups to it.

              You CAN use AD Security Groups which is WONDERFUL...but you can't use the O365 groups for App control which is odd since you use them in the workspace.

              • "Dashboard Wizard": Asking for your data sources, (business) sector, department, visualisation purpose; offering pre-configured dashboards.

                Not everybody turning to Business Intelligence wants to spend ages on getting into the matter. Also, the needs of certain businesses tend to be very similar. A Dashboard Wizard therefore would be of great help, allowing to consider enough user details to be meaningful, but still easy to handle. Nothing is as attractive as an easy interface. Not excluding further adaptations later on in the process, of course.

                • Report to Different Database

                  Hi, good evening!
                  I'm currently studying Microsoft Power BI but ran into some issues that I'm not sure how to solve.

                  I have 30 databases, all with the same table structure, but different clients in a same server, and I need to create reports for them. What I'm unsure is:

                  Do I have to create them individually if I need all 30 of them, or is there a way to link them together somehow and create all reports at once?
                  Also, once I need to alter the structure of the report, do I have to change each one individually, or…

                  • Hide certain parameters

                    It would be great to have the ability to hide certain parameters from the end user. When creating parameters, similar to how it is described in the following video, the parameter essentially becomes a placeholder, and not really used until the report goes and looks at (in this case) the Excel spreadsheet for the values. Thus, if I export my PowerBI file to a template, I would like to be able to hide that parameter from the end user as nothing they input really matters.

                    • PowerBI Templates for Azure

                      Each Industry has its own operation standards
                      Eg, Hospitals, Hotels, Universities, Retail etc
                      it would be better if there are pre-built templates for industries which can be imported and populate with data through step-by-step azure powerbi configurator

                      many small companies and many IT dept in non-IT industries like hospital will find it difficult to setup PowerBI dashboards on their own. if anyone with azure backend should be able to use guided power-bi connecter to start using powerbi. it has to be as simple as that

                      • "Cloud for Customer"

                        SAP Cloud for Customer (C4C) reports are limited. users need better reporting capability for reports mashing up data from C4C and ECC. Just as Microsoft created "Salesforce Sales Management" solution template, they should focus on creating the same for SAP C4C which is gaining momentum in the CRM marketspace. By this maybe Microsoft can beat SAP at reporting needs as PowerBi is included in O365

                          • Time Intelligence - Allow General References in Date Table to Report MTD, QTD, YTD

                            It seems that quick measures for MTD, QTD, YTD will not display results in tables, or charts if the related date elements are not included in the values. For example, including only the Month in a matrix will display blanks for the quick measure: Sales YTD = IF(ISFILTERED('Calendar'[Date]), ERROR("Time intelligence quick measures can only be grouped or filtered by the Power BI-provided date hierarchy."),TOTALYTD('Sales'[Sales], 'Calendar'[Date].[Date])).
                            However, the same date values will display results for the formula: Current YTD (Manual) = CALCULATE(Sales[Sales],DATESYTD('Calendar'[Date])).
                            The time intelligence quick measures should be more flexible in how they are reported.

                              • Dynamic Page Size

                                I can't recall exactly when the change occurred, but it would be nice to have the 'dynamic' template again. There use to be an option where the page size type was 'dynamic' and it has been replaced with 'custom'. Right now, I am basically opening old power bi files, deleting charts and data sources, just so I can keep the dynamic feature. This would allow the page size not to default to only one size. When you resize the web browser or dashboard, it will adjust accordingly.

                                • boot xray reports

                                  It would be nice if Reports/Templates were created for reporting on Microsoft's Boot XRAY. Boot XRAY currently uses MS Excel to connect to the SQL DB for reporting. It would be nice if something other than Excel, like PowerBI could be used for this reporting.

                                    • Comparação De Dados por períodos de datas distintos.

                                      A ideia seria poder criar um cenário com diversos dados, gráficos, visões e elementos que o usuário desejar e criar um novo tipo de elemento chamado COMPARAÇÃO POR PERÍODO DE DATAS.

                                      Quando o usuário selecionar este elemento, ele deverá fazer as parametrizações que já existem hoje, porém a mesma será igual para os 2 campos que serão exibidos no PAINEL.

                                        • Solution templates should support D365 Customer Service

                                          Wouldn't this be great addition to the D365 suite of solution templates.
