  1. Enable on-premise PowerBI the ability to show webpages from others servers.

    Hi, I have PowerBI reporting server on-premise. (on trial) I also have lots of other servers on-premise. These servers are mature and have reporting tools of their own. Reports and visuals have been created on these servers as web pages. To save me from having to re-write them all into PowerBI on-premise reports server, can you allow me the functionality to create a tile on the PowerBI server which loads up the web page of the other servers on site. Currently, PowerBI in the cloud let's you embed webpages from other sources, so I was surprised to see the on-premise…

        • 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).

          • Analyze in Excel from Power BI Report Server

            This feature would be great. Many of our users are in Mac OS, which means they can't explore the data beyond the charts setup by the BI team, because PowerBI Desktop is not currently supported in Mac OS.

              • Change user language setting in the report server

                I want to force to model to use English language for large values that represent in the model with shortcuts "M" and "K" (Millions,Thousands), but instead in some computers the browser display I get is in English and other in our local language.
                It would be very helpful if we can change the language setting for each user in the report server ,just like we do in the Power BI service.

                • More page customisation in PBI Report Server

                  Allow more page customisation within report server so that it can truly serve as a Portal / Interface for the business and remove the need for SharePoint being the initial interface where you can really customize the page layout and embed objects and text.
                  - Text formatting on pages i.e. adding a paragraph about what's contained within this folder.
                  - Allowing frames for certain SSRS reports or PBI reports to run within the page without actually going into the report, similar to KPI but more extensive use of the actual MS reporting tools
                  - Allow the rearrangement of folders and…

                        • Download a Dataset on Power BI Report Server to Excel

                          Users and Report Builders on Power BI Report Server should be able to export datasets that they have access to Excel. This would help company analysts cut down on ad-hoc reporting since users can't utilize Q&A functionality on Report Server.

                              • RTL & Custom Features in Power BI On-Premise (i.e. PBI Report Server) for MENA & LEVANT Regions

                                IT Companies in the MENA & LEVANT regions where RTL support is critical in reports and dashboards, are facing issues convincing their customers to adopt Power BI due to lack of critical features.

                                Apparently, the current version of Power BI optimized for On-Premise needs to have some critical features added urgently in order to help in adoption of this product in the region.

                                We are specifically talking about a region that uses RTL Orientation such as: Hebrew, Arabic, etc., etc...

                                The following features are critical:

                                1. RTL support for all visuals. Priority off course to Matrix and Table visuals. Without…

                                    • Analyize in Excel for Report Server

                                      Please add the option to Analyize in Excel for Report Server.
                                      Many users need to slice and dice the data using the pivot with the connection to SSAS cubes. If my model is in PowerBI, without SQL tabular cube - there is no option to analyze it with Excel.
                                      You've already implemented such feature in the Service.
                                      Please do it for Report Server also
                                      Thank you

                                        • Cloud not allowed / Power BI report server licensing too expensive for small project

                                          Some companies do not have the right to outsource their data in the Cloud (Military, Space ...).
                                          I have Power BI projects for 5 to 10 users maxlmum. The best choice in this case is a Report Server license on-premise adapted to 5 or 10 users. Currently you need the Premium license which is too expensive for these small projects. As a result, customers are looking at other products like Qlik or Tableau!
