    2. Slicers should be make a change in all the pages based on the selection (like excel using report connection )

  2. There's no "enable custom visualization warning"

    I have reflect this problem to Microsoft Support Team,
    but they ask me to post the idea here that everyone who has the same problem can track this issue at the same time.

    Let me explain the problem.

    The situation is, if one create one's own report/dashboard with custom visuals,
    the "enable custom visualization warning" will appear in the browser normally.

    However, if one views a report/dashboard including custom visuals via content packs which is published by other people,
    the "enable custom visualization warning" will NOT appear.

    Microsoft said the product group is aware of this feature gap and is…

  3. Reports No Longer Render

    After the latest release, none of my reports render anymore in the mobile app. Is anyone QAing updates before they're deployed??? Or are the end users Microsoft's QA team?

  4. Allow QuickInsights on a selected graph

    It would be awesome if you could run QuickInsights on demand on a certain selected (chart / table). Enabling you to save the QuickInsights output in the report so other people can benefit from this too.

  5. Silcer that toggles

    I'd like a slicer that is purely a toggle switch. For example I need to toggle an entire report between sales dollars to Units. This slicer would only allow you to select either sales dollars or Units but not both because adding dollars and units does not make sense.

  6. Photos on Map

    Microsoft has developed the "geophoto" app. It would be great to have the functionality in Power BI, with a range of filters like date taken, etc from the photo's metadata read in from onedrive just like geophoto does it. Additionally, it would be great to display events from databases or excel along with their corresponding coordinates in tooltips on maps (check out awesometables on google sites with their map widget). Keep on going!

  7. Add ability to customize names in legend

    When adding a legend, there is currently no option to edit the field names/categories in the legend. The reports I work on often have underscores I'd like to remove (without going into the database, etc.). It'd be great if this were editable while making the chart.

  8. Reporting Tab not working

    After clicking on a report in the reports menu, the whole Power BI app closes. This is happening with all iPhones I've tried.

  9. Fix the line spacing scrolling issue on a published report

    When publishing a report and then viewing it on power bi there are issues when scrolling through the data. As you scroll down, a bunch of line spaces appear. I've duplicated this in three different browsers and the breaks always appear in the same spots. I don't see that this has been reported before and am looking for a solution.

  12. Add data authority management in BI

    for the published dashboard or report , many users are using the same report format or dashboard format, however the data they need to see should be only according to their role. I have not found the way or funcation in PowerBI to realize this.

  13. Power BI is becoming too technical, should be more business- and financiallike

    (End-)Users are mainly non-IT, focus should therefore be less IT and more business/financial/user-friendly instead

  14. create reports and assign to specific users and or groups

    right now you have to create a content pack however it would be good to share the reports, same as you do for dashboards ..to a specific user, all org or a group. Also reports should retain and display any custom visuals used!

  15. Duplicate visualizations

    I would like the option of duplicating visualizations so I don't have to create the same visualization over and over again for a different report or page of a report.

  16. Please show 'on what current level we are' when doing drill down on reports

    When using drill down reports (for example on time), it's very hard to know where you are in the hierarchy.
    Imagine a hierarchy with year - month - day - hour. When we are now in the deepest level (hour), it's impossible to see in which month-day we are at that point.

    Having a bread crumb navigation on the top that show 2015 - 08 - 26 for example would be awesome to use for both navigation and visualization of the current context.

    This is really important for usability

  17. Enter text size values to resize

    Currently, the only way to resize text is via a slider that you must drag to the text size you want. This is cumbersome, particularly if you already know the size of the text you want. We should be able to directly input a number into the font size text box similar to the ability to enter a number of degrees of rotation for shapes.

  18. add the focus mode to the Slicer Visualization

    since Power BI Desktop Version 2.33.4337.281 32-bit (March 2016) it isn't possible to use the focus mode within slicer visualizations. Focus mode is very useful on pads

  19. Formula Tooltip placement covers formula bar

    When trying to create a new measure or column the tool tip in the formula bar covers the formula you're writing. It is very annoying as you are then unable to see what you have written. Placement of the tool tip needs to be improved.
