  1. Hidden synced slicers reappear when navigating with bookmarks

    I just noticed, after publishing a report on PowerBI.com, that when I go back and forth between bookmarks, pages that have hidden slicers show them after I go back to the previous page.
    This is REALLY inconvenient, since the goal is to make clean reports available to users.

  3. PowerBI Report Server layout

    I would like to have more possibilities to change layout of the PowerBI Report Server. I'm using brand package, but it's not flexible - one color for many elements on the page, hiding page header if I use logo. Also I can't change font sizes, but I want to make smaller breadcrumb, because just now, navigation, header etc covers 30% of to page. Can we expect any improvements in this area?

  5. css minify, compression, and any more performance improvements

    A quick audit in Chrome 66 pulls out a trove of places that could be heavily improved to improve performance.
    Minify the Javascript, minify the CSS, enable text compression on the web server, tree shaking on the CSS to remove unused CSS rules.
    The first 3 of those should be relatively trivial, and to be honest in 2018 web development should absolutely be part of a packaged web server product!

  7. Power BI Desktop RS and Report Server

    Page background image added to report made in Power Bi Desktop does not show when report is posted to Report Server for example.
    Update report server to work with all features that are in power bi desktop RS version or remove them to avoid confusion on what work and what doesn't. Set some more focus on, on prem solution the business world is not ready to go full cloud.

  8. Refresh reports link everytime when it is published and generated

    Refresh reports link everytime when it is published and generated
    Currently, if we publish a report and generate a link the updated reports are shown in the generated link, but if the same reports are published again the very next minute, with some changes to the reports, so it takes about an hour to update the link, the reports should be updated in the link everytime when they are published and the link is generated.

  9. creating Library to categorize detailed report

    currently report server(app.powerbi.com) is not having functionality to create a library to categorize the report (like a folder , one library contains many report). This functionality will save time for business to go categorize their detailed report and save time to go through huge section of reports in report section , insist of that they can go to their categorize section to find the report.

    Could PowerBI Desktop for Reporting Services be branded in a different colour to differentiate the deskop client from the regular client.

  13. Easier data source credential input page

    When adding a scheduled refresh to a power bi desktop file in the report server, one must supply to the server the credentials for every data source. The list of data sources may be as long as dozens of sources. Often time same user and password us required for all files. It would be great to get the input file to save user for all files.

  15. Usage Metrics in Report Server

    I would like to have this functionality available for the On Premises Report Server.

    The usage Metrics look ideal to have visibility of our uptake, and also maintain access logs. (Although for the last - I have voted to increase the retention of usage to >90 days in a separate feedback...)

  16. Parameter Panel for Power Bi Reporting Server

    Problem: If we have more than 24 parameter the parameter panel fill up entire screen , doesnt allow to scroll down for selection parameter and view the report. If we reduce the zoom size , it is possible to see the screen.

    Can you consider this issue as priority.

  18. Capability to edit Excel workbooks hosted in Power BI Report Server and save it locally

    Many users from my organisation needs to be able to export or save changes made to Excel files hosted in Power BI Report Server to their local drives. This is a very sought after feature. Saving to the server would also be acceptable.

    Edit capabilities is enabled on the Office Online Server, but disabled for Excel in Power BI Report Server.

    Please enable Edit, Save or Export capabilities to Excel files hosted in Power BI Report Server through Office Online Server.

  19. power BI Desktop Mobile View

    When viewing Power BI in the mobile connected to Power Bi Report Server the folder that are set to hidden on Report server are not hidden on Mobile view. possible solution would be to add a check box on Report server stating hide from mobile view, then update the mobile app to recognized that parameter. Or make the mobile app pick up the site settings and security on the mobile app.

  20. Replace SSRS with Power BI?

    Replace SSRS with Power BI? Is that on the visualization road map for Microsoft? Currently there are a lot of overlaps and Power BI can do (almost) everything SSRS can and then some. To be clear, I understand these 2 tools are used for different things but I don't see why Power BI can't be improved/enhanced enough to replace SSRS in the long run.
