  1. export the dashboard view to formats like pdf, word, ppt slide

    You are creating a review (document) describing the landscape of sales in Poland and you would like to add some dashboards into this as a visual. ofcourse, I can creat the screenshot and add it but the image will work better.

  3. Adding a "Hide Page" option

    The other day, one of my customer told me that one of the report page was not neccessary. So I deleted.

    Now, he says he wants this page back, but I have to replicate it.

    It Would be great if we had the possibility of hide a page, so we don't need to delete and recreate if needed.

    Thanks!

  5. Copy text from slicers and tables

    It will be very useful if we could easily copy text displayed on tables cells, and slicers to clipboard to reusing them on other applications or in formulas.

  6. Nested X Axis Labels

    In a regular PivotTable we can nest axis labels e.g. we can group regional data by year. Currently PowerBI only supports one level of X axis labels.

    There are loads of areas where this would be useful but one example is with the MailChimp campaign data which currently only allows you to list all the campaigns alphabetically. I want to group/sort by date. My only option is to use Slicers to filter out periods I don't want, but that doesn't really help me see them in date order.

  8. Pie Chart percentage labels

    add number percentages to dashboard and power view pie charts. if the issue is "how does Power BI handle smaller and smaller slices without becoming muddled?", then maybe just have it label the larger slices and not the smaller slices so users can see what factors are having the highest order of magnitude impact on their business.

  10. Add Custom hierarchy feature

    Creating custom hierarchy is possible in Power view which is very helpful to drill down different hierarchies. It would be great if this feature is added to Power BI.

  11. Set Email Alerts in the web interface

    It would be great to have a conditional alert system that would periodically send an email based on any metric. For example: The report updates everyday but only sends alert if Sales<Budget.

  12. Make filters that can apply across all pages in a report

    Currently you can set a filter that applies to an individual chart, or at a page/view level. You should also be able to make a filter apply across all the pages/views in a report.

  13. Add Report Page Tooltips to Publish to Web

    Report Page Tooltips added in Mar 2018 is a fantastic feature, however they don't appear when a report is shared using the "Publish to Web" functionality.

    Apart from the fact, it's not included as a limitation in the documentation, it's a real shame not to be able to use this feature in publicly available reports.

    Publish to web now supports report page tooltips automatically, no extra work on your end! Thanks for voting on this idea.

  14. Drill up or down on individual graphs online

    We need the option to drill up or down online for individual graphs. The new update online is terrible and it is not intuitive. At least add drill up or down back to graphs and also have the option in the explore tab online. There is also not an option to drill up or down when you are in full screen, which is very cumbersome. This is honestly one of the worst updates for the online version.

  15. Include report filters in Drillthrough action

    As much as I like the new Drillthrough actions, it seems a bit lacking in that it does not also pass through any report filters that are active on the source report on the source report.

  17. Lock Map location and zoom once

    I would like to lock the location and zoom instead of always going back to the default view of the whole globe.

    This will apply both for Report and Dashboards.

  18. Bi-Directional RLS

    Bi-Directional RLS is now available in SSAS 2016 but not available to Power BI Desktop/Web.

    This can lead to confusion and unexpected behavior when setting up RLS. Potentially, unwanted data can be exposed to an RLS enabled users as Report level filters do support bi-directional filtering. The filtering behavior used by RLS should be consistent with a Report level filter.

  19. Add animated "Play" axis on the Bubble Chart

    The Play ability in a Bubble Chart is a great way of discovering and visualizing trends. The current manual way of interacting with the timeline is not really useful.
