  1. Automatic update of Pinned Live Pages

    A dashboard that is based on a pinned live page is not automatically updated when the dataset is updated.

    Automatic update of Pinned Live Pages should be implemented as a feature.

    • Sharing Dashboard's from Power BI Premium with Free Users

      As a big organization who has invested in Power BI Premium server we would like to be able to share Dashboard's with Free Users.

      We can share App's but in some cases, it's useful to be able to share single dashboards from the workspace with specific users.
      For now, we must create many workspaces, which also create lots of O365 Groups, and this doesn't seem appropriate. We have been informed that selective publishing app content, is in the near future, according to the road map.

      Still being able to share single dashboards is still a missing feature when you pay…

      • Bookmarks on BI Service at Dashboard level

        Loving the new bookmarking feature, however working within an organisation where Power BI has just been introduced the majority of our dashboards are pinned reports to dashboard level. It would be AMAZING if the bookmarks (linked to images) worked on the dashboard level.

        If you can pin an entire report and the interactive visuals work, logic dictates that any image-based bookmarks should also work. Also adding bookmarks to filters would be heaven.

        I appreciate that bookmarks are in preview but would welcome any indication of further bookmark developments?

          • Support filtering across multiple PowerBI objects

            Currently there is a possibility to apply filter only to Report.
            It would be good to expand filtering capabilities for other Power BI objects.

              • Exporting Dashboard

                Currently I'm facing some issues with power BI as i'm unable to save my visualyse dashboards in to PDF or power point. It is very helpful if we can get them as PDF,Excel or PPT version. most helpful if we can get dashboard visualyse reports to the excel in original view.

                • When creating bookmarks, affecting report level filters should be optional

                  We use report level filters using URL filtering in Power BI embedded. Overriding these with bookmarks kills the entire purpose of the dashboard. Report level filters should not be affected by bookmarks or it should be optional choice when creating the bookmark.
                  Bookmarking is useless for us with the current behaviour.

                  • Multi Workspace Dashboard

                    Create a global dashboard with Pin's from reports on multiple workspaces. That dashboard could be stored on "My Workspace".

                    Because Apps is 1:1 relation with workpaces we end up creating a workspace for RH, Operations, Finantials and it's hard to create a dashboard with KPI's / Measures from all those areas.

                    • Azure AD B2B Close Security Issue: Only allow directly shared Apps

                      The new B2B feature is great and will allow many new use-cases, but it opens up a ALL Apps shared with the Entire Organization to any guest user. This should be fixed! Guest users should only view what was directly shared with them. It's understood the Power BI Admin can disable sharing with the Entire Org, but this is a handy feature to share company wide data.

                      • Dashboard tile should go to report with bookmark applied

                        If a dashboard tile is created using a report bookmark, it would be useful when the tile is clicked, that the report shown is filtered using the bookmark the tile was associated with.

                        This improvement will save confusion as currently the report opens using the filtering it was saved with.

                        • First Time Sharing Dashboards

                          There seems to be a problem the first time you try to share a dashboard with another user (any further dashboards are not a problem). When you first get the email inviting you to join, a pop-up appears saying that "Something went wrong" as "The invitation is invalid". It is eventually possible to access the shared dashboard, but only after closing this error box, signing in, clicking the original link again, closing the error box and then refreshing the page (some steps possibly omitted). Please make this more straightforward.

                          • Increase Export Data Limits

                            In late 2016, Power BI improved our export data options to allow exporting up to 150,000 rows to Excel from a visual on a Power BI dashboard for Pro users. If you require higher limits, please vote on this idea. If you have more specific requirements, please leave them in the comments.

                            • Link text boxes to bookmarks

                              It is currently possible to link inserted shapes and pictures to bookmarks, but I find that I have to insert a shape around a text box in order to create a bookmark "button". It would save frustration and promote efficiency if I could just link the text box to a bookmark.

                                You can drill in on the line chart on the X axis. I would like to be able to drill in based on a legend hierarchy. This is useful to compare trends over time across a whole area and then drill in to see by local area.

                                • dashboard

                                  I would like to be able to visually group dashboard items. I have a dashboard consisting of 3 -4 different KPI's(from reports) that cover 4 different areas. Now I see 12-16 KPI boxes, that contain describing text, but I would love to ha a simple functionality to visually group them, this could any of the following:

                                  1) Be able to color them with that same color (like a very light green or red or yellow)

                                  2) Be able to draw a "box" where the different areas are grouped (the line could also be a color)

                                  3) Be able to shade…

                                    • Export to Excel row limit increase for workspace on Premium

                                      The maximum number of rows that can be exported to .xlsx when in the Power BI service is 150,000 for Pro users and 30,000 for Free users. Since we just migrated workspace to Premium, our ex-Pro-license report consumer user, which no longer need Pro license, now lose this limit privilege from 150k back down to 30k. At least, for Premium workspace, the limit should be at a minimum of 150K (or even higher)

                                      • Number unit for different countries

                                        I think the unit for numbers ,such as thounsand/billion/ million should be changed for different countries. In China ,we usually use thousand千/10thousand 万/ 100thousand十万/0.1billion亿.
                                        These will be more easier for Chinese users. maybe there will be same problem for other countries.

                                        • After pinning a table to a dashboard the scrollbar is no longer available

                                          Steps to reproduce:
                                          1) Create a Table on a report with over 10 records.
                                          2) Pin this table to a Dashboard

                                          Scrollbar does not appear on Dashboard despite being available on Report.
