  1. 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…

    • 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.

        • RLS for Users Outside of Organization

          It would be really helpful to be able to use Row-level security on dashboards to share with users outside of the organization.

          For example, you have multiple partners, and you want to restrict each partner to only view the data relevant to them. If this were implemented, you could use a single dashboard connected to a single data set.

          Currently, you would need to create and manage a separate data set and dashboard for each partner.

          • Dashboard & Report based content filter by "User" permissions

            We currently have to replicate the same report for each project, create a workspace and an app to deploy. This is labor intensive. We want the user to see their project's information without having to select the correct project from a slicer or filter. It'd be nice to have to manage a single report or dashboard and link a user's information to automatically slice or filter that report or dashboard to the project's they are working on. This way, as an admin, I could manage a single report or dashboard and just manage permissions and what project a user has…

            • Filters

              Any applied filter should be highlighted to show which filter is applied to avoid confusion & time to search which filter we have applied in order to redo the action. It is particularly useful when we are dealing with lot of filters for slicing & dicing the data

              • Dashboard Documentation

                I am looking for some option to get my dashboard documented from Power BI. for instance, the underlying SQL Queries/Tables. Report/Page/Visual Level filters etc? May be we can add purpose field behind dashboard, page and visual and get them as their purpose when generating documentation of the dashboard

                • Synchronize chart axis

                  There should be a way to synchronize both the y axes in a single chart for different measures as it is allowed in tableau making it easy to compare different measures else , we have to look at left and right axis to determine the values for that individual measure..

                    • Affix a slicer on top of another visualization

                      There should be a way to bring a slider to the front of a visualization so it can be permanently overlapped over another viusalization

                      eg a slicer for region laid on top of a map

                      • Right click and edit

                        Right click and edit. It's too hard to find all the confusing formatting options on the right side. A very straight forward way to edit a graph or table is right click and then choose what you want to do. Otherwise the more features you have, the more complicated Power BI will be.

                        • Dashboard View: Tabs instead of scroll view

                          Can an option be added for the Dashboards to be displayed as tabs as opposed to the current scroll view (as it appears in the Power BI Desktop view prior to it being published).

                          • Keep the mouse click as a selector.. then right click to drill down

                            I love drill down however for users it is not intuitive to them to find the arrow icon, turn it on, then drill down. Then return to the icon, and turn it off to simply select.

                            It might be easier to keep click as a selector, then use a right click mouse menu option to either drill down a level, or another right click option to drill through a level entirely.

                            We literally have to train our users on what the different arrow icons mean and where to find them in the matrix bar. Where everyone knows what high clicking…

                            • Hierarchical Slicers

                              It would be great to have Hierarchical Slicers- for example, instead of having an individual slicer for YEAR, QUARTER, and MONTH on a report, if there was one DATE slicer that you could select the year, month and quarter all in one.

                              • Allow sharing of Dashboards to users outside my organization who use Gmail or Yahoo accounts, etc.

                                Currently, I get an error message when I try to share a dashboard using the web service to users with gmail or yahoo accounts and the like. Many small organizations or consultants use gmail or yahoo and we need to be able to share with them as well.

                                • Pinning Tiles from Shared Dashboards

                                  Currently one cannot pin tiles from a shared dashboard to ones own created dashboard i.e. you can not consolidate 5 dashboards into 1 high-level dashboard. The ability to pin tiles from shared dashboards would be perfect for the business environment!

                                    • Four Goals (MPVs) on Tachometer component

                                      I was thrilled when I found the Tachometer Gauge to show three levels of goals. Could this idea be expanded to show four levels? This would allow a measure to be compared with Below Minimum (Red), Minimum (Yellow), Primary (Green), and Visionary (Blue).

                                      This component already has the ability to show a Needle vs a Target line. Could we also have the option to increase the weight or thickness of the Target line?

                                      This component could be a real space saver for use, showing a comparison between Company (Target line) and Team (Needle). At a glance one could quickly see…

                                      • Customize Secondary Y-Axis

                                        By default, the secondary Y-axis option applies to all lines in a chart. Currently, it is not available to make it only apply to one specific line. It is critical to be able to choose which line is plotted on the secondary axis vs. the primary axis. This is a very common task in excel and would be great to have the functionality in PowerBI.

                                        • Pin Report pages from multiple workspaces

                                          It should be possible to pin report pages from multiple workspaces.

                                          For example if the Finance department publish a report to their Finance workspaces that only they and the CEO are allowed to see.
                                          And at the same time the HR department publish a report to the HR workspace that only the HR guys plus the CEO are allowed to see.
                                          Then the CEO should be able to pin both report pages to his own Dashboard for easy acccess to both reports!

                                          Please let us do this both for our personal workspaces but also for dashboards in App workspaces. (Acccess…
