  4. Raise Awareness to end users

    Create template of a General Dashboard containing all Active Dashboards so the end-user can navigate and see if any of them are important/ relevant for them.

    This needs to contain a general description of each Dashboard and to mention the Business Owner so, if the access request is required it can be reached.

  5. Enable subreports in Power BI Report Builder

    Enable subreports in Power BI Report Builder. Currently, subreports functionality is not enable for Paginated reports in the Power BI Service. This is a common request from our users to design reports that emulate the subreporting functionality they are used to in SSRS

  6. More Affordable Premium Nodes

    With XMLA endpoints coming to PBI Premium, this licensing model is becoming very relevant to a lot of smaller organizations and ISVs for whom the dedicated capacity is not necessarily the main selling point for upgrading from Pro licences.
    The option for a premium subscription at a more affordable tier -- with reduced capacity -- would be a great help to all users trying to convince management to make the investment.

  7. Images in Paginated Reports with Authentication

    Ensure that it is possible for the credentials of the one accessing the paginated report can be passed to bring an image into the paginated report.

    Use case: Designs - the Power BI report will show what designs are being worked on and where they are in terms of development timelines etc... A basic image file (png) is kept of where the design actually is at present this should only be accessible to the project team, but they can be asked to present progress reports to senior management who want to see not just the information about the design but…

  8. Combined Nbr or refreshes/Nbr of queries & memory usage over time in capacity metrics

    It is good to see nbr of refreshes over time and nbr of queries over time but memory consumption is a result of both. Hence, a combined report in the capacity metrics app would give a good idea about moments where lots of refreshes are going on AND lots of querying is going on AND memory consumption is high.

    I created such report and it helped us a lot in 'moving' refreshes to more 'quiet' moments. I'm sure it can help other premium admins as well.

  9. Premium metrics - Aggregate data across capacities

    This idea comes from the Power BI Unconference session at Microsoft Ignite 2019.

    The Power BI Premium metrics app currently shows data for a single capacity. Data should be aggregated across multiple capacities.

  12. Power BI premium capacity metrics - extend it to beyond 7 days.

    I would like to see capacity usage metrics beyond 7 days. Is this going to be a part of any future releases? I should be able to keep an find of the usage metrics for the duration I wish for say few weeks to few months. Specific month, specific week etc. Please add a feature for this.

  13. RDL Paginated reports and Publish to Web

    Please enable end users to easily share RDL by enabling Publish to Web for paginated reports created with Power BI Report Builder?

    Since placing an RDL onto the workspace is already restricted to Premium subscribers only, it would be helpful to enable end users to share RDL or paginated reports publicly themselves without needing .NET developer.

  14. Incremental Refresh Detect data changes have different schedules for [short]] period and all data

    Say you have 5 years of data in your model

    Currently you have new records and data changes so we set the model to process the last years data and detect changes Using LastUpdatedate in our data

    This is all great but very occasionally, there may be a data change outside of the years worth of updates

    the question is, how do you deal with this? I Dont want to be updating the entire models data set when updates to older data doesnt happen that often. BUT, if it does happen, we want to reflect it in the model

    Could…

  15. Pinning Datasets to Memory

    In the current state, the Power BI service will evict a dataset from memory if it needs to free up memory for other datasets and if the dataset is relatively idle (not being queried or refreshed). Teams should be able to exclude certain datasets from this behavior to ensure these datasets will always be in memory and thus refreshes and queries will not encounter delays due to loading the dataset back into memory.

  16. User based visuals

    My software team currently consumes data from the tools we use everyday to help with identifying issues in our processes. It recently came up that we would like to see our own team member performance in comparison to a team wide average, but without the ability to see each other individually (to avoid negative motivations).

    It seems like this would be possible as a Premium feature (maybe not only Premium) if the dataset required an additional table of Power BI userIds with a relationship to user identifiers in other tables. It would also open up another realm of opportunities for…

  18. Pin visuals from App/Report without pro licence

    Most users in our organisation cannot create a dashboard made by pinning visuals from an app/report. We had originally envisaged used being able to filter a variety of wide-ranging reports and create their own dashboard by pinning their "favourite" visuals to it.

  19. Add drilldown and Drillthrough capability to CPU utilization chart (Premium Capacity App)

    The current Premium Capacity Metrics app is quite useful (especially with all the new enhancements), however the ability to drilldown on CPU usage would greatly be appreciated.

    At the moment, we can only see the overall CPU usage, without having the ability to pinpoint the datasets/reports that are causing this.

  20. Make accesible the raw data from Power BI premium capacity metrics

    We would need to extend the Capacity Metrics dataset to generate custom reports with additional information, and applying RLS to share the info to the business users which own each workspace. As for now, the dataset can't be modified.
