  3. Automatic addition of "Count of rows" column as Measure

    If we add such column which is initially simple count of rows
    Based on Dimension user chooses count aggregates automatically

    For example

    If I choose Product as dimension and count as measure it will be count by product

    Now there is workaround in Power BI where we choose Product into Axis and Same Product Dimension into Values shelf. But this bit confusing

  4. adding colon to large numbers in various visuals

    When displaying thousands or millions, it is hard to read without colons. Please add colons "," i.e. 1,234,465 to visuals

  5. Label format for target and max value differ

    The data label format on Gauge control for the actual and target values (e.g. 2.5M) differs from the maximum value (e.g. 25000000). Make them all the same.

  10. Report prior to GA upgrade broken as new canvas layout is forced

    Though the Dashboard is working fine but all the old reports fail to show as users have to select 'Go to old canvas view' each time. This user setting is not persistent and they have to repeat each time they visit the reports. Please fix and do consider backward compatibility!

  11. Choose if a click should visually Filter or Compare other report items

    Today, when clicking on a chart item (e.g. a bar in a bar chart), that makes all other charts (in most cases) present a comparison between the clicked item as filter and the unfiltered chart. Sometimes the wanted behaviour is to present all other charts with the data filtered directly, not as a comparison with the unfiltered chart. It would be nice if this behaviour was configurable (either on chart level or on report level).

  12. Custom URL Support also in Reports

    At the moment you provide the possibility to define URLs for tiles in a Dashboard - the same functionality could also be useable in reports as well. It should work like in the dashboard, thus if an URL is specified the visualizations in the report has no function but directs to the specified URL - for web based applications this would provide further analysis within the application

  13. Export Power BI reports Created in Cloud to designer files

    Provide Ability to export the reports created in the Power BI App to the Power BI designer . This feature will enable the exporting of content from one app to another much more flexible and would really help vendors like us who provide standardized content for a particular business vertical.

  16. Adjust reports based on selections in other reports

    If I have a tree map and a bar chart, I'd like to make the bar chart adjust to selections in the tree map. So if I chose North America for example, the bar chart should not show UK bar even dimmed out. It should essentially apply the filter on the visual side for that chart.

  19. Improve slicer functionality

    When I insert a slicer, sometimes when I click on an item the scrolling bar shoots back to the top without actually selecting the item. So I cannot filter my report to show specific. Also, sometimes global filters apply to my slicers and other times they do not. It would be nice if global filters worked all of the time. It would also be nice if clicking on another visual filtered the slicer to only include items falling in the category you clicked on. Again, sometimes this works and sometimes it does not.

  20. Can you provide option to generate a custom field using Visual studio online data?

    I am using my VSO data to build PowerBI dashboard. In my case, each task has multiple tags. I want to showcase one of the tags as a separate field. Can we provide this functionality?
