  1. Need History Snapshots of Reports in Server

    Need the ability to snap what the report looked like at the beginning of each month. This can be done for Report Builder reports on the PowerBi server but not on the PowerBi reports on the server

  2. Allow to pass more url-parameters to set lay-out when using IFrame

    Our company is using Power BI Reportserver. Our reports are included in our CMS with the ?rs:embed=true option.

    It would be great to pass more options to the report:

    Example
    - EnableParameterBar: Option to disable the parameterbar. Default TRUE
    - EnableTabBar: Option to disable the tabbar shown at the bottom of de report. Default TRUE

  5. tag users in comment section on report server

    Hey,

    I like the comment function next to a published report on the Report Server very much, but it should be possible to tag users or colleagues in the comment. So they get an email notification with a link to the Report and can already see the comment. A similiar solution is already integrated in Microsoft TFS, maybe you should concider adapting this also on PowerBI Report Server.

  6. Allow outlook email accounts to login to Power BI

    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?

  7. 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.

  9. Customize Data Labels when publish aren't working correctly. "Show" remains clicked yes and I can not change it to no.

    I am able to use the customize data label on my desktop and select what lines/bars I wanted there to be labels. However, when I publish the same report, data labels appear on each line/bar and I am not able to change the "show" value button from yes to no. Every time I select no, it immediately changes back to yes.

  12. Ajustar el tamaño de las columnas de una tabla en conjunto

    Sería muy útil poder organizar el tamaño de las columnas de la tabla de forma simetría, no una por una. La idea es tener la opción de ajustar el ancho de las columnas de una tabla y que automáticamente todas las columnas tengan el mismo ancho.

  13. Power BI Report Server Log should contain data export log by each user

    Power BI Report Server Log in the SQL server metadata does not contain details on who exported data from the visuals. It would be ideal to have these details for audit purposes for organizations with sensitive data where data sharing by downloads is a concern.

  14. Add filter preview and customizing filter pane (just like in Jan 2019 Power BI Services) to Desktop RS and Server versions

    1. Hide Filter pane from report published to Power BI Report server.
    2. Create or cutomize filter pane for Report Server (as of Jan 2019 this is only available in Power BI Desktop and Power BI Service Jan 2019 versions).
    3. Make Visuals filter selection propagate to other pages/tabs in the Dashboard (E.g. I click one value in a table or a bar in a chart and all corresponding data in any other page/tab filters accordingly. As of Jan 2019 RS and RS Desktop version this is not possible. This would be similar to how syncing slicers controls now work.

  15. Schedule Multiple sources at multiple scheudles in one single pbix report

    Hi, right now we are not able to create different schedule refreshes for same report.

    Example our report has two sources (from two servers SQL and Teradata). Teradata Source refresh should be daily and SQL source refresh should be hourly. Both these are for same pbix file. Can we have this important feature as this will help to schedule different sources differently.

  18. PivotTable.js as a service like feature within power bi server

    add a javascipt like pivot table (eg. PivotTable.js) into the power bi service, but not within the power bi desktop application. Allow this to connect to tabular models. This would be extremely powerful feature. This would work like pivot tables in excel, but having the data in one location for reporting. Pivot tables are so widely used, its about time Microsoft adds this feature as a service.
