  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…

      • Add more tiers to power bi premium

        Power BI would be much more attractive to use for small to medium sized businesses if there were more power bi premium tiers. Either this or have more power bi lite licenses.

        • Sending Report as e-mail ability for all browser users

          A published report cannot been sent as e mail to report server browser users, however sending report as e-mail would be a lot userfriendly and practical

          • 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…

            • Allow ability to print an entire report in Report Server

              Right now you can only print one page at a time in reports posted to Report Server. Please allow the ability to print the entire report (all pages) at once.

              • 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.

                      • 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!

                        • 请考虑将Power BI Report Server部署的本地报表增加一个全屏按钮

                          请考虑将ReportServer部署的本地报表增加一个全屏按钮,可以让报表或者仪表盘的展示可以实现全屏效果,并在全屏界面下增加一个浮动的按钮,可以取消全屏,切换展示的页面;具体功能希望能够和Power bi Server版本上展示全屏和取消全屏的效果一样;

                              • Allow URL redirect after session inactivity timeout

                                Current PBI Report Server does not enforce a period of session inactivity. In the event a user leaves their machine unattended, it could allow for an attacker to access the website using another user’s credentials. The lack of this ability increases system exposure to data breech. PBI Report Server should provide the ability to terminate browser session and redirect to a logout URL. This feature is key for Enterprise solutions to meet the security requirements.

                                • Align PBI Desktop and PBI Services

                                  For me is very frustrating the fact that I have a lot of reports using PBI Desktop and as soon I want to publish it on PBI Service, half of the features won't work, like:
                                  Combine datasource, have function with datasoure with parameters, datasources with annonymous authentication...

                                  Can both be aligned? either add the same functionalities on PBI Services or remove them from PBI Desktop?

                                  • Add support for IBM Netezza DirectQuery in Power BI Report Server

                                    As indicated in, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/report-server/data-sources, Power BI Report Server currently only supports a IBM Netezza data sources with cached data. As this is not really useful, it would be ideal to add support for Power BI Reports that use a DirectQuery connection to IBM Netezza.

                                      • On-premise PowerBI report server offline access

                                        It will be Great If On-premise PowerBI report server has capability of offline access to the reports through Mobile App

                                        • In the report subscription on PowerBI report server output folder on powerbi report server itself must be configurable to set as destiation

                                          While setting up report subscription on powerBI server, we should be able to set sharepoint library or powerBI report server folder as a destination to store report subscription output file.
