    • webdav - folder browsing

      Being able to browse to the report server from Excel (and other tools) through the file open dialog (or indeed windows explorer) through webDAV would extend the usability of the Report server massively

        • Add comments function for Ipad Mobile App for PBI ReportServer Reports

          I have the PowerBI mobile app on my Ipad as well as on my Iphone and we are using Power BI ReportServer.

          On my IPhone I have all of the comment functions which I already know from PowerBI Online, but if I open the same Power BI Report Server Report on my IPad with the Power BI app - there isn't any comment function. It is missing, but a really important feature.

          • Copy over Name and Description when creating a Linked Report

            When creating a new Linked Report from an existing Paginated Report, it would be sensible to (by default) set the Name and Description fields for the new Linked Report to be the same as those for the original Paginated Report it is linked to, rather than leaving them null by default as is currently done.

            • Power BI server hide table / graph

              I want the possibility that a user can hide / show a table or graph. For example if there is a graph and a table that uses the same dimensions / measures I want that a user can hide or have the possibility selection show only table / graph. So a visualisation with the possibility to show a table and a graph with the user option to select what a user want to see. That would be great.

              • implement simple page navigation for PBIX reports on the SSRS Edition

                The cloud service offers a simplified page navigation experience when large numbers of pages are present in a PBIX. this feature does not seem to be present in the SSRS edition. When large numbers of pages are present the cloud service shows Page X of Y and if you right click you get a pop up list of the pages available. The SSRS edition just has the page tabs across the bottom and a scroll bar. This just feels very clunky by comparison

                See the screenshots in this thread

                • Expand Shared with me to Dashboards and reports

                  Can Shared with me section have expand capability as Workspace, i.e. Users can see Dashboards and Reports separately so they can go to an underlying report without going to Dashboard first.

                  • Report Server send email alerts to specified users if threshold(s) is exceeded

                    Not every user has the time to manually check reports to see if any KPIs have been met or exceeded. Alerts would help notify users immediately instead of waiting for them to check themselves. It would be nice if Desktop publishers could manage who received these alerts, or users could create their own alerts as well.

                          • Power BI Server manage Thresholds

                            I want the possibility that a user / account can set there own thresholds on the data. For example on a table. The colours on the table can be adjusted by the user logged in.

                            • Power BI server manages "badges"

                              I want the possibility that a user can select from a table a number / month for example they want to monitor specific. This can be added to the Dashboard by the user (user profiles?) like a KPI. The selected month / number is presented on the dashboard and a user can monitor this much easier. This could also be removed by the user.

                              • For a live SSAS data source connection, need ability to control the number of records returned by a query

                                In my opinion this is a very basic requirement that i believe every other tool has. Am surprised that Power BI lacks this control. We should be able to set a limit on the number of records that can be returned by a query to the report. This is specially important for live connections where end users might pull in millions of records into the report.

                                • PBIRS Add buttons for Fit to Width/Page/Actual Size/Percentage to right of status bar

                                  In PowerBI Reporting Services, a bar appears along the bottom which lists the pages / tabs. To the right of this bar, could a menu button be added which gives a choice of scaling the page: "Fit to Width", "Fit to Page", and possibly a few other zoom percentage sizes (50, 75, 100, 125, 150).

                                  • Auto-hide option for visual header

                                    If beforehand you know users will zoom in a lot it would be useful to show that option straight away. In Visual header we have quite some options, but we miss an "Auto-hide" option which is set to On by default. That way we would be able to set it to off and always have the buttons like "Drill Down" present.

                                    • When in report the report name in path should go to properties like in SSRS 2018

                                      When you get sent a link and someone is asking for addition to a subscription you have to click the report, then go to the folder and click to get into the manage page for that report. SSRS 2018 had it so the path report name was a link to the properties and saved a lot of headache.

                                      • Relative Date Slicer: Can't Click on Slicer Options

                                        We are using relative date slicer on our reports. This slicer works fine on Power BI Desktop application. But when I publish this report and access it on various browsers we are not able to select values from first drop down i.e. Last/Next/This as well as second dropdown i.e. Days/Week/...
                                        We have tested this on chrome, edge, internet explorer and we observed the same behaviour.
                                        We are using the latest version of Power BI desktop application and we are using Pro License.
                                        Need a solution for this issue.
