  1. Visual tiles, charts, etc, in Report Server folder views

    Any chance of having visual tiles, charts, etc, in the standalone Report Server folder views (so something a bit richer than KPI widgets)?

  3. In Report Server, add an option to hide the "Upload" button from the portal

    We want to limit how files are uploaded to the Report server and only allow publishing of files from the Power BI desktop Application. So we want to have the Upload button configurable/hidden.

    I see this function requested many times here so I believe this would be a popular feature.

  7. Power BI Report Server iFrame responsive. Please add rs:mobile=true option

    Hi,

    I created some PBI reports with mobile layout and want to publish them in the intranet (custom application, full responsive design).

    When embedding the report in an iframe, the report does not adjust to actual size.
    I try with some css tips but it seems that Power BI Report Server does not accept to display the mobile layout.

    An idea : provide an URL option (rs:mobile=true)

    Regards,
    Denis

  8. Power BI Report Server standalone License

    Because of the data confidentiality I cannot publish my report on the cloud.
    For publish it on the Local server it required Power BI Premium Licence which include (Server capability, Power BI Report Server), But I don't want all the features in power BI premium license I only want report server.
    So, my request is Kindly provide Power BI Report Server standalone license (with additional cost) which can be used with pro license.
    I had seen in your community portal number of requests for the same.

  9. Refresh rate option for each visual in Report Server

    Add refresh rate option for each visual using Ajax without refreshing the whole page. In direct data sources sometimes we need to show data updates every x number of minutes. Can we add it in Report server please?

  10. Reset to default should stop hiding filter pane

    Right now when I click the Reset to Default button on my published Power BI report, the button not only resets to my default state, but it also removes the filter pane, which I do not want it to do. The report was published with the filter panes showing so users could alter select filters. But the reset makes the pane disappear and this state is not part of my default settings when the report was published.

  11. Ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself

    My organization use (PBIRS) but it has huge data and it's the effect on our performance.

    It would be great; if you can add the ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself. In this mount, it's working only by change values from the toolbar edit parameter.

  12. Custom Format for Scheduled Automated e-Mail Triggers

    Hi,

    Custom Formats should be made available when we trigger Automated e-mail Triggers.

    A few features like this is available in Power BI Robots (why cant we have these made available in Power BI mainstream too?)

    Regards,
    Vignesh Raja

  13. Power BI On-Prem

    We installed Power BI On-prem in our environment. After assessing the application, we figured that users with Power BI Pro license have an option in Power BI Desktop App to "Publish a report to cloud" or "Save as a report to Power BI On-prem report server". Having an option to publish to cloud would defeat the purpose of an On-prem installation. I would recommend having a separate build of "Power BI Desktop App" for On-prem only installation, which does not provide an option to publish report to cloud.

  14. Security - Managing users

    When managing security you have to know the Username of the user you wish to add, not by User principle name or by Display name.
    Our company user name are a employee Id. So it's not possible to know by looking who has permissions. This makes it difficult to find a user without asking or do AD searches outside of Report Server. Please enhance the security users to show Display name, or by user principle name so it can more obvious who access is assigned, we try to use groups when we can. However there is away exceptions.

  15. Report server - Refresh Error Page

    Admin space showing all refresh failures on PBI Report Server. I would like a page on the Report Server where I can see all refresh failures on the server and an option to pick and choose which ones to run again. Today I have a paginated report with a subscription every day that lets me know which reports failed, but then have to go into the Management screen for each individual report to diagnose and re-run it.

  16. Upload a modified dashboard without having to upload all the data again

    When I upload a dashboard to our premium space, I get asked if I want to upload the data too, since the same data is already present online. If I click on cancel, it doesn't upload my changes; if I click OK, I have to wait for my data to be uploaded. Why can't we simply upload changes to the dashboard itself without the data? When the data is big, it's quite a pain in the a** to wait after having modified a simple title, for example.

  17. Show the word Favourites (rather than Favorites) for UK users

    My Windows display language is set to English (United Kingdom) yet I see "Favorites" (the US spelling) in place of "Favourites" (the UK spelling) in Power BI Report Server (on premise) v15.0.1102.597

    If I change my Windows 10 preferred language to French and restart the browser (IE 11) I get "Favoris", which is as expected

    So it appears that "Favourites" has been misspelt somewhere

    Please can this be corrected

  18. Automatic refresh function

    Automatic refresh function is not working without creating own report for each of the tabs, and even then, the refresh has to be made for every browser window separately.

    That is not as smooth as the simply reloading the data by clicking the Refresh-button. In cloud Power BI version this problem can be solved putting URL parameter as reportSectionGUID for each tab. It is a shame that the same function is not available at on-prem version.
