  1. Subscribing to bookmarks

    When we create a bookmark in service, subscription should be made available for these bookmarks as well.

  3. Private Comments

    New feature of comments in Reports is really nice and of great value.

    Sometimes though comments should not be visible to anyone with access in report.

    It might me a good idea to create an option box for sharing comments only with account tagged.

  4. Give users the ability to share a personal bookmark or filtered view from an app

    Users want to easily share a link that will take others to the exact view they are looking at. Workspace versions of reports allow for sharing with filters, now we really need the same thing for Apps. Workarounds exist (commenting, editing URL, etc), but they are not great or easy for our users. We can share report level bookmark links, but not personal bookmarks.

  5. Text values are consolidated to single case (either upper or lower)

    I have noticed an issue with Slicer/filter cards and Table visual. The text values automatically converted to upper/lower case and consolidated into a single value. For Example, my table has 2 values SIVA and siva. The slicer/Table visuals either show SIVA or siva, it doesn't show both values. It leads to the wrong representation of the data/insights in some-case where I need both values.

    In the Query Editor, I can see both values. However, it is not the case in the reporting layer.

    I'm experiencing this behavior in both Power BI Desktop and the Service.

  6. Control which bookmarks are viewable in the service

    This idea has come about from the introduction of personal bookmarks in the PBI Service: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-personal-bookmarks-in-the-power-bi-service/

    Many report creators use bookmarks as a dynamic way of showing/hiding visuals, or navigating between tabs. Exposing an end user to these bookmarks could be confusing for them and expose the underlying workings of the report.

    Personal bookmarks are great, but an option in PBI Desktop to expose certain bookmarks in the PBI Service would satisfy both report creators and consumers.

  8. Restore reports or dashboards

    In Power BI you cannot restore individual report or dashboards.
    It would be interesting to add a recycle bin, so we can restore some reports, datasets or dashboards that were deleted.

  9. Export to PDF needs to include all rows in a Table or Matrix visualization

    The new feature Export to PDF appears to be just a screen capture of each report - whatever is currently being shown on the screen is what is captured in the pdf. When a report has a Table or Matrix visualization on it with rows that scroll beyond what is shown, these are not captured in the pdf. Need to have all the data show up in the pdf.

  10. Data driven subscription for Paginated Reports in Power BI

    As paginated reports are now part of Power BI premium, the option of have data driven subscription as in SSRS will be a must needed feature to complete migration to the Power BI world.

    Technically by getting the parameter values from a dataset table.

  11. Top + "Others" & Bottom + "Others", show option filter

    For all visuals we need the option in TOPN filter type, inside the "Show items:" dropdown box, the "Top + "Others"" and "Bottom + "Others"" options, so when a user specifies, for instances, "3" the visual should show the first or last 3 label and besides a 4th label, grouping the rest as "Others" for all kind of visuals... You should keep the "Top" and "Bottom" options as well... Best regards

  12. Power BI as a Data Source for Microsoft Word

    Power BI is a great tool for Data visualization but not the best for List/Print Reporting.

    Paginated Reports are good but are not suited for End Users.

    In order to have an easy way to allow End users to create List/Print Reports on their own I believe Microsoft Word is a great tool for the purpose.

    The solution would be the following:
    - Use the XML Mapping functionality in Microsoft Word in order to connect to a Power BI Data Source.
    - Use the smart tags in order to allow the user to select the data data it wants.

    Microsoft…

  14. Always display the 3 dots that currently appear only on hover

    Some features are not easy to discover due to being triggered by 3 dots that only appear when hovering over it. Please display these dots permanently on rather than hiding them..

  16. Update Log for Power BI Report

    When you make changes to a report and publish it to service, you will get Pop-up asking would you like replace the existing dataset. Power BI should provide a comment s box at the same point to enter the Changes we have made to the report and display it in service as an update log.

  18. Custom "Request Access" pop up button

    When users try to access to any POWER BI dashboard, which they don't have access to, it would be nice to custom Pop up to ask them to raise request to access it, instead of generic one.

  19. Allow json template formatting for text box and button

    Currently there seems to be no way to customize text boxes and buttons using the json template file, even though they are customizable in the GUI. Please add this ability and update the documentation so we know what the visualName would be for them.

  20. Implement RLS on Paginated Reports using SSAS Tabular as a datasource

    As it is today, credentials do not get delegated from the paginated report to the ssas tabular datasource. The result of this is we cant have Row Level Security. The datasource gets queried with the security level of the power bi gateway service account. This makes imposible for us to use paginated reports in a enterprise level that requires sox compliance and other security standards.
