  1. Set All "Visual Header" Options with Custom Theme

    There is now a "Visual header" card on all data visualizations. I would like to be able to set all properties in this card in my .json custom report theme file.

    Including: Background color, Border, Transparency, Icon color, and about a dozen On/Off toggles.

  3. "Fullscreen default"

    Fullscreen default view for report sharing with readers or accessed by readers on workspaces that have access, with optional to open full Power BI Service interface. Something similar is already possible in the "Public Link" report option and code to embed in websites and Sharepoint.

  4. Slider (slicer)

    In Power BI there is fundamentally one slicer. It is actually okay most of the time, but sometime you need something different. How about a slider (for on and off). You can use is for active/inactive employees and many, many other scenarios. I know you can use the standard filter for this, but the purpose here is to use as little space as possible (and make it understandable for users).
    I know you can change the standard slizer and turn it into buttons, but it takes up to much space
    I know you can design it using bookmarks, but it…

  6. True "measures" dimension for Power BI matrix visual

    Currently in the PBI matrix visual, it is very hard to manipulate the location that metrics show up in. The metrics are always the "inside most" items.

    For example, if metrics "revenue" and "units" are in the column position along with years, Years always becomes the highest level, with "revenue" and "units" showing up underneath. But I might want to see all years "revenue" amounts first, followed by all years "units" amounts.

    Ditto if metrics are in the "row" position - any other dimension value comes first, with rows always nested as the most inside item.

    Other tools (specifically OBIEE)…

  7. "Test As Role" in Power BI Web Across Copied Reports That Share The Same Dataset

    With the new updates in June-July 2019 reports have the ability to be copied to other Workspaces/Apps whereby Primary reports in the Primary Workspace/Apps share the same Dataset with the Secondary reports in the Secondary Workspaces/Apps. This is a very good feature that I love.

    However, when it come to testing the Row Level Security (RLS) using the "Test As Role" option, the Primary Workspace/App is the only Workspace/App to "Test As Role", which means one cannot "Test As Role" the RLS in the Secondary Workspaces/Apps.

    It would be nice if Shared Datasets across different Workspaces/Apps have the option to…

  8. Displayethe name of the page being deleted in delete confirmation box.

    Could you add the name of the page being deleted?. Often, the page being deleted is not necessarily the page that is currently selected.

  11. Monthly Subscribe to emails

    We measure our stat over the course of a month, however come a certain date of the month we need Power BI to email these using 'Subscribe to emails' monthly - ie not daily or weekly (the settings available at the moment).

  12. Row Level Security on Visuals and Tabs

    It would be great if you were to apply row level security on Visuals as well as Tabs within the Master report. This would be great for large corporates where we can create the same report but certain departments can only view certain visuals with key stats applicable to them

  13. Synchronised Drill Down across multiple charts with same hierarchy!

    Power BI desparately needs to support:

    Synchronised Drill down across multiple charts with the same hierarchy on the same page (or across the report)

    It is extremely annoying, if I have seveal graphs, to have to drill down or up on each of them individually. A feature that allows you to synchronise the drill down state selected charts would be make the user interface incredibly friendly!

  15. Usage metrics in new workspace

    Hello,
    I'm really missing usage metrics in new Power-BI workspace.

    Based on the article
    [https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-create-the-new-workspaces#planned-new-app-workspace-preview-features]

    the implemenation is planned. Could this be prioritized?

    Thanks
    Martin

  16. Dynamic Measure Name based on Slicer/Filter selection

    We should be able to dynamically change the name of a measure based on the value selected on a slicer.

    For e.g. A slicer has 3 items : MTD, QTD AND YTD

    We have a measure known as Average Sales.
    Now based on the option selected the name of the above measure should change as 'Average Monthly Sales', 'Average Quarterly Sales' and 'Average Yearly Sales'.

    We can control the values changing dynamically on that measure based on selection, but changing the measure name would be a useful feature to have.

  17. Remove the limitation that disables reports exceeding 30 pages to be exported to PowerPoint/PDF.

    Allow reports the are more than 30 pages long to be exported as PDF or PowerPoint presentations, or allow single pages of a report to be exported individually.

  18. Exclude links for subscriptions

    I would like to schedule reports pages to email out on a schedule, but not include links to the report or to manage subscriptions. I would like to be able to subscribe people outside of my organization who will not have access to my organization's Power BI instance.

  19. Power BI Workspace reports access for different users

    Hi,

    It would be important to have restriction on workspace reports based on set of users. Example: We want to restrict 10 reports in a workspace to user1 and 5 reports to other user2.
    Currently we don't have the feasibility to restrict reports based on users.
    Also, it would be good if we can also publish multiple APPS on a single work space.
    These features will allow us to create restrictions to reports or APPS based on domains.

    Please let us know if you can consider this idea for coming releases.

  20. Section to pick default page

    I noticed that on whichever report I save my report, that will be default/starting page after I publish my report; This could be very confusing; it would be great that each report has section to pick which report is default/starting point.
    Thanks
