  1. It would be useful if there was the option to collapse/expand all for the list of queries in the field sidebar

    We have a large list of queries, and it is inconvenient to manually collapse/expand each section every time we want to modify our reports.

  2. If a field contains a URI present it as a hyperlink so the user can follow it

    I have a dashboard which uses the Card report to list a set of results. Each result includes a JobUri which I'd like users to follow. While I can add the URI to the card it is presented as just text. Example: https://msit.powerbi.com/dashboards/abfa898c-325a-4fc7-a20c-df1193cc4ac7

  3. Allow clicking of URL data within PowerBI.

    We're using PowerBI for diagnostics work. We would like to be able to interact with the URL data in our tables (namely, by having URL data be clickable so that it opens up the appropriate location).

  4. Allow calculated measures that use Date/Time data format

    I have a common requirement to show the "freshness" of my data in a report. Usually I create a calculated measure like MAX(CreatedDate) and expose it in a "ReadMe" page of my report. Current Power View does not even show these measures in the field list, Dashboard preview reports expose the measures but they fail when I try to use them in a table or on a card.

  5. Canvas Size

    Can we have a dynamic canvas in reports (similar to VISIO's canvas)? Start with one page. If the user needs more space on a single view, then the canvas size expands automatically (both horizontally and vertically).

    (please also make the canvas size consistent between reading mode and edit mode. Currently, entering editing mode shrinks the canvas size horizontally)

  6. Control whether a visual slices or highlights other visual

    Rather than cross-highlighting when you click on a datapoint, give us the option to have it filter other visuals!

  7. Have the ability to hide legend header in charts

    Sometimes legend doesn't need a header; the series names are self-explanatory. Can we have an option to hide the legend header? Or customize it (so we can delete the header or change it to something more meaningful)?

  10. Toggle to disable map auto-zoom

    Provide an option on the map visualization to disable auto-zoom. This will allow us to create a map that is fixed on a particular location regardless of the rest of the data and will not re-center or zoom in/out when filters are changed.

  12. Dinamically apply filters for embedded report

    Now we have the ability to embed reports great! But without having the ability to set and change filters it is hard to have enterprise level solution operational.

    Please provide a way so we can set default values for filters and to update values via javascript so we are not forced to use slicers to change values (they take too much place on the screen and they become really impractical when using more than a few elements)

  13. Publish Excel Services reports to Power BI

    Allow Excel Services reports to be published to the powerbi.com portal. This would enable people to go to a single place to find all their reports rather than having to find them across PowerBI and SharePoint / Office 365.

  14. Matrix Conditional Formatting option/default to not format Blanks (nulls) as 0's

    The new Matrix condition formatting introduced in the November update currently defaults blank (null) fields to 0 therefore colours them the same a 0.

    For example, I have a diverging red/amber/green scorecard out of 10 per measure/data item but as some measures aren't relevant for some data items, they still display as RED rather than an option to default blanks to no formatting.

    It makes it unusable for what I need it for unfortunately as the real RED values (scoring 0/1/2) are easily missed in the sea of red blanks.

  16. BUG: Fix needed on data labels

    There is a bug when showing pie charts that show both category and value. Depending on size of pie chart, some of the values show with parenthesis and some do not, although all values are positive. Not sure if this happens on other charts yet.

  20. Full screen mode for web embedded Power BI visualizations

    The ability to full screen web embedded Power BI visualizations like YouTube allows for videos or open the visual in another tab. In the Best Report Contest (January 2016) you link to contestant entries that are embedded in web pages in the Power BI site. The visual were hard to read and navigate in their embedded state. It wasn't readily apparent on how to enlarge the embedded visualization (no icon in the bottom bar). I had to inspect the code in the page to find the http reference link that allowed a full screen visualization.

    We’ve added the show full screen option for Publish to web reports. You’ll now find a new icon on the bottom right of the embed that takes your report full screen. If you have an existing embed code, it will open the report in a new browser tab. If you create a new iFrame you’ll see that we include the allowfullscreen=“true” attribute on the iFrame so it can open in place. If you add this attribute to your existing embed codes it will open the report full screen in place as well.

    Thank you for using Power BI and keep the suggestions coming!
