  1. Full Screen mode in Power BI Report Server

    Power BI Report Server should have an option to open the report in Full Screen mode just as it has an option in Power BI Service . When we open reports in Power BI Report Server , we can view page in 3 options 1:) Fit to Width , 2:) Fit to Page and 3:) Actual size . Issue with these three mode is the page and header consumes a lot of space and we need to scroll to view to full report .

      Thanks for the feedback! We have this on our backlog to consider for future releases.

    • Create Power BI Report in Report Server using shared dataset created with Report Builder

      We should be able to create Power BI Reports inside Report Server using shared dataset created with Report Builder since there is no option to share datasets throught PBI Reports.

      • Please put "Logout" button in Power BI Report Server

        There is no option for user to logout from Power BI Report Server. Currently, when user wants to logout, user will just have to close the browser/tab. It would be nice to have the logout button. Please add this for security purposes.

        • Have Power BI Server offer same capability as SSRS Report Server for Parameters

          For Power BI Server have the ability to pass parameters via the URL, or a parameters collection ASP.Net control, so that Power BI deployed to the Power BI Server can pass the parameters the SQL Query behind when using Direct Query so that filtered results can be returned as well as using a parameter to deliver row level security via the query.

            • Alert in Power BI Report Server

              I think it is a good idea to have alert whenever data exceed threshold in Power BI report Server on premise just like the features in power bi service.

              • PBIRS full screen button

                Could a full screen button be added to PowerBI Report Server? Possibly to the far right of the status bar where the page tabs appear.

                • Support Power BI Report Server multiple instances on a single server

                  Please add support for Power BI Report Server multiple instances on a single server. Like SQL Server Reporting Services : ability to change name, location, add, remove instance. On a mid/large report server farm, multiple instance helps a lot for progressive patching, ssrs subscription launch on different sql engine, etc.

                    planned  ·  Riccardo Muti responded

                    Tons of helpful feedback here. Thank you!

                    Several people asked why we removed support for multiple instances. Rest assured, we had no desire to do so. To release Power BI Report Server every few months, independently of SQL Server, we needed to develop a new installer separate from the SQL Server installer. (There was other customer feedback that called for a separate installer as well.) There’s simply more work for us to do to reintroduce multi-instance support within this new installer. We don’t yet have a timeframe to share, but yes, we do plan to reintroduce multi-instance support!

                  • Add ability to import themes in PowerBI Desktop Optimized for Report Server

                    With the regular desktop version (not optimized for Report Server), I was allowed to import color Themes. This is useful b/c I could load my companies colors to the desktop and all my visuals take on the colors themes I imported. I'm requesting this feature be added to the Desktop optimized for Report Server.

                    • Report Server Schedule End time

                      Add the ability to set an end time for scheduled refreshes.
                      I would like to be able to do regular refreshes e.g. every 10mins but only during a small period such as 8am to 10am.

                      • Power BI JavaScript API support for Report Server

                        At the moment to embed reports in a intranet webpage we only have the option to put ?rs:Embed=True at the end of the url.

                        I have read (on this website) that there are plans to extend this so parameters could also be passed in the url, in a similar way that the current SSRS works.

                        Could we also have the Power BI JavaScript API enabled for Power BI Report Server, in a similar way to the Azure service has ?

                          I use my outlook.com email account for all email and other accounts. Please make the change so that outlook.com email accounts can login to Power BI. What's the downside?

                              • Pass Parameter from Slicer to Stored Procedure to Fetch New Data on PBI Report Server

                                I see a lot of "ideas" for allowing parameters to be passed to a stored procedure dynamically through a slicer for the cloud service, but don't see exactly what I'm asking for for Report Server.

                                Please allow us to create reports based on a stored procedure and dynamically fetch new data based on the value of a slicer. The slicer value would be the value of the parameter being passed to the stored procedure.

                                If PBIRS is built on the SSRS engine, why is this feature not available in PBIRS the way it is on SSRS?

                                Thanks.

                                • SSRS Style Parameters are vital for optimised Power BI Reports

                                  The way report parameters work in SSRS means we can have reports that load quickly and are optimised.

                                  Currently with Power BI we are presented with the solution to use slicers on the report, however that doesn't cut it when we have a lot of data in the back end it just isn't responsive and we have excruciating load times.

                                  Not having this feature is a deal breaker, and we cannot switch from SSRS to Power BI because of it.

                                  • Add "Underlying data" option to Export data capability in PBI Report Server product

                                    This capability is enabled in the Power BI Service (cloud) product, but not in Power BI Report Server (on-premises) product. This is a problem for our users since we migrated to the Report Server product.

                                    It was very efficient for our users when we used Power BI Service to slice the reports and then select Export data and then have the option of selecting either "Underlying data" or "Summarized data". Now, in Report Server, this option is missing and the only data that can be exported from a report is exactly what is presented in the report visualization (i.e. summarized…

                                    • Provide option to 'Publish to Report Server' instead of 'Save As' on Power BI Desktop for Report Server

                                      While using PBI Desktop for PBIRS would be a lot better to have an option under the menu Publish rather on Save As in order to save a report to the Power BI Report Server.

                                      • Allow users to save multiple filter presets on the Power BI Service

                                        Persistent filters was a great step forward, but it would be even better if users on the Power BI service could preserve multiple "presets." In other words, they could save their current filter settings as a type of bookmark just for them, and then they could retrieve previously used filter settings. This would be really helpful for users who may have a couple of different ways they like to look at things.

                                        • Anonymous access to power bi report server

                                          Is it possible to give users anonymous access to reports without the need for authentication?
