  1. Measures as Data Labels

    Currently the data Labels are just the values displayed in a graph, often it is required to have one or more measures as data labels to provide additional context to the data being display. Ex. If you have a bar graph showing sales for different regions yo u might want to have YoY% as a data label

  5. Ability to add a secondary axis to a chart

    Right now all the charts supports only one y axis. There should be a support for secondary axis as well.

  8. Search functionality for slicer

    In slicer we need to scroll down to select from multiple values. It should have functionality like when user types/enters any value it should get auto populated and then user can select that value from slicer.

  11. When you have multiple measures on a graph (conditional formatting) you need to show both measures in the tool tip.

    The tool tips are great. However, if you use conditional formatting in charts, you have two measures that are active. Currently, only the one primary measure appears in the tool tip. Both should.

  13. Add functionality to "Edit Report" in the Browser

    As more data sources become directly accessible to build reports for in the browser (without toing through Power BI Designer or Excel), the browser "edit report" is getting far behind what Power BI Designer can do.

  14. Private embed: the ability to embed reports in web pages without making them public.

    Maybe I'm missing something. I'm publishing commercially sensitive data to Power BI and then embedding those visualisations in Microsoft Sway. Surely, those reports aren't public are they? If they are, it would be a tremendous shame for there to be no option to embed them without making them public...?

    Today I’m very excited to announce the availability of the Power BI report web part for SharePoint Online! We’ve heard from customers that SharePoint Online is a critical part of their company’s data communication and dissemination strategy and that to-date it wasn’t easy to include Power BI content there. The feature we’re announcing today changes all that.

    We’ve been busy at work with the SharePoint team building an out-of-the-box web part for SharePoint Online using their new Modern Pages infrastructure. The new web part we are releasing today enables SharePoint authors to embed Power BI reports directly in SharePoint Online pages with no code required! The feature is available today for Office 365 First Release customers.

    Read all about it on the Power BI blog: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/integrate-power-bi-reports-in-sharepoint-online/

  15. Make use of check boxes in Power Query

    In Power Query, when, for example, selecting append tables, what if you have 50 tables? Having check boxes which you could just select, and then at the end click OK once, instead of your way now where you have to individually add a table each time.

  18. Power BI needs capability to support local data

    When a PowerBI dashboard is published to PowerBI.com using a static data (non refreshed cached data set) and online content, it still complains that a refresh cannot be executed because there is an on prem data resource. This error message should only be displayed if the refresh is set to ON for local/on prem data source and should not be displayed when trying to use the data as a static cache. Alternatively, Desktop needs to provide provision to create a copy paste data table from excel so that the source reference is purely local and static and does not need…

  20. Improve data labels algorythms of showing

    Sometimes data labels are not shown on random areas of line charts even if there is space for them. It usually happens on first and last values of line and sometimes on upper side of chart. It is important to see the last date labels on charts specifically if it is the last period values(when x-axis is time or date formatted)
