  1. Navigation Pane for Reports

    It would be great if there could be a navigation pane similar to the filter pane in reports to allow end users move more efficiently between report pages with out setting it up manually with bookmarks.

  2. Export single or multiple pages to PPT

    It would be nice to be able to export single or multiple pages to PPT. Since many visuals allow you to drill to a new view users have to need to output that view to PPT. It doesn't make sense to export every page but "hidden" all over again for the 1 or 2 pages that might have changed. It would also be nice to have this option in Desktop as well

  5. Ability to Email Report as PDF to Multiple Recipients

    Power BI should provide the ability to send a filtered report, in PDF format, to numerous recipients via email.

    Power BI should provide the ability to accept filter criteria and email recipients programmatically.

  6. Sharing reports across B2B organizations - Security Groups

    When you create a security group in Azure AD that has external B2B users in it, and then grant this security group access to your Power BI App, the B2B users still can't access the App. If you grant access to the B2B users individually, it works. If you add internal users to the security group, it works for the internal users as well. It only doesn't work for B2B users in a security group. ​

    When an Azure AD security group is given access to a Power BI app, all users in the group should be given access to…

  7. ability to copy a filter between visualizations

    I would like to be able to copy the definition of a filter across pages in a report, for instance, if I manually built by multiple selection a filter that resulted in Server is ServerA, ServerB, ServerC, I would like to be able to copy this into the Server field's filter in other reports.

  8. ability to copy a filter between visualizations

    Once I've done a filter by multiple selection of values over a column, I would like to reuse the same filter in other reports without having to do the multiple selection again.
    This is especially painful on reports which have many pages of data and user needs to extract information from multiple pages.
    Idea would be to be able to copy and paste the definition (example: Server "is server1,server2,server3" to Server in another page.

  10. publish to web does not currently support python visuals

    Power BI allows us to publish from Power BI Desktop to Power BI Service that support Python visuals instead of publishing to web from Power BI Service.

    The Python visual and the R script visual are not supported in publishing to web currently. It would be nice to be able to do this.

  11. Allow for adjusting slicer search font size

    Allow for the slicer search font size to be increased. Several of our users that are visually impaired cannot use the slicer searches because the font is so small.

  12. Possiblity to add hierarchy to Filter Pane

    We have a possibility to add hierarchy to a default slicer but we don't have a possiblity to add hierachy to a Filter Pane.

  13. Control axis of "not displaying all data" on visuals

    Although I do not necessarily agree, I understand the limitation and rationale behind "Too many values" / "Not displaying all data" when there are too many plotted points on a visual. That being said, the report author should have control on which axis from which data points are eliminated. For instance, if I have date on the x axis and a legend of an important dimension on the y axis, I should be able to tell the power bi engine to sample from the dates and not the legend.

  14. Automatically detect hyperlink in text

    We work with a lot of textual data, and much of that data has hyperlinks in it. It would be nice if when rendered, those links could be "live" so that a user could click on it and be taken to the destination. This would match similar behaviour found when writing emails, and across the Office suite.

  15. Change the color of selection box or drop down option in a slicer

    When designing reports for End User, they have some mandatory color guidelines to follow. In those cases, it seems to be a limitation of not having color customization color for the selection & drop down option in slicer.

  17. Data labels in ArcGIS Maps

    Add data labels to all themes in the ArcGIS Map. Only some of the themes have data labels when the mouse hovers over a point on the map.

  18. Default tab order (aka Reading Order) based on Z reading pattern instead of order that visuals were initially added

    This idea inspired by Meagen Longaria's fantastic interview at the following podcast:

    https://policyviz.com/podcast/episode-169-meagan-longoria/

    When report devs don’t set the tab order of a PBI report (which is pretty much the default) then tabbing selects visuals in the order in which they were initially added to the page. This almost always results in a random user experience that bounces the user all over the page, because report devs almost never build reports in any kind of order.

    The default behaviour should be to tab through visuals more intelligently using XY coordinates. This will never be perfect, but it's almost certainly going…

  20. Disable visual highlighting and interactions

    When clicking on certain elements of a visual, I can control the interaction this selection has on other visuals within the report, but I was wondering if there is the ability to completely disable the clickability of a visual? I don't want the end users to be able to click on the visual at all, so neither the selected visual or other visuals would be highlighted? Tooltips should still be viewable on hover.

    This feature should be available for use in both service and desktop.

    More information on the unsuccessful attempts people have made trying to achieve this with graphs/charts…
