  3. Printing Report as PDF file ability not only for designer users but also for all browser users

    A published report can only be printed by the report server browser users, however saving the report as PDF document would be a lot userfriendly and practical

  4. Home (Preview) or Custom Landing Page

    It would be nice that there is an option to set the new Home or other page chosen by the users to be the default landing page when opens Power BI.

    By now when I sign in Power BI the first page I see is "My Workspace" or a featured dashboard. It would be better if the user can chose what to see first.

  5. Power BI Report Server needs a "View in Desktop" option

    We have "offical" reports that we don't want general users to be able to overwrite, but these reports are using live connections back to a SSAS cube so we are more than happy to let them open the report in Desktop and make their own version which they could then save back to My Reports or some other folder where they have write access

  6. Persistent Filters

    In our Report Server deployment the most frequent request by end users is: “Give me a prefiltered (eg. by departement) version of the standard report so that I will not have to spend time on filtrering” - the request is valid - but with more than 100 departments maintaining such a setup becomes extremely time consuming - therefore I suggest bringing Persistent Filters to Report Server - it would dramatically reduce the time needed to maintian a enterprise
    scale BI deployment - and would be a kikker-feature for Power BI Report Server (and align features beteeen cloud and on-prem)

  7. refresh time

    Allow for different refresh times other than 00 and 30. With multiple reports updating at the same minute cycle at our enterprise level, this causes timeouts and other performance issues.
    Should be able to schedule at any minute point of an hour, at a minimum 05. That way we can space out a set of reports at 1:05, 2:10, 3:15, 4:00, 5:45, etc.

  8. Full Screen Option in Power BI Report server

    It would be good to have full screen option, so that consumer can present in full screen. It good to have icon for that before setting icon in top right navigation same like Power BI Service. Right now I can do that using URL by appending ?rs:embed=true but my users and not technical enough to do that.

  9. Power BI Report Server Auto Refresh

    Add a setting on power BI report server to enable report to auto refresh and display fullscreen.
    As well as a setting to hide all tool bars so that extensions do not need to be added into url.

  10. Download refreshed report from Report Server

    For a report stored on the Power BI Report Server that is refreshed automatically, when the PBIX file is downloaded the original is provided. Provide the report with the up-to-date data instead.

  12. PowerBI Report Server MFA authentication

    It would be better if PowerBI Report Server has the ability to authenticate users with MFA.

    Currently, Power BI Report Server for Mobile Reports has the ability to authenticate users on ADFS but the support for ADFS it could be expensive if you implement it using the best practices.

    It could be a great feature if the Report Server could use AAD. Because some clients have MFA in their AAD; so, it will bring more security and will save money when the Microsoft´s clients have Azure AD with MFA.

    Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/consumer/mobile/mobile-oauth-ssrs

  15. Power BI Report Server does not send all queries by Direct Query as Expected

    Issue Description:
    We created a PBI report with a slicer and table in the report. The report is using direct query mode when connecting to data source. If the data in the backend data source is changed and then when we change the slicer for an already loaded report, the latest data is not reflected.
    Steps to Repro the issue:
    Step 1: Use the below SQL script to create the tables and data in the data source.

    SQL Script:
    USE [TestDB1]
    GO
    /****** Object: Table [dbo].[FactSales] Script Date: 06/05/2019 15:43:42 ******/
    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS [dbo].[FactSales]
    GO
    /****** Object: Table…

  19. Publish a roadmap for Power BI Report Server!!

    Is it too much to ask that Microsoft provide their user community with a roadmap of planned features for Power BI Report Server.

  20. Display PBIX file size in report Server

    Since PBIX files have a maximum size, Report Server needs to be able to show what the file size is for a report so that as file size increases through data refreshes, we can know when a report is getting close to the maximum size and take appropriate action.
