  1. Bookmark "Toggle" - Retain Slicer Selection

    If you have 2 visualizations that you are toggling through a Bookmark image, and have slicers on your page, if you change a slicer value and click on the image to toggle to a different viz, the slicers value will not be retained. For instance, if I select Canada in a slicer, click on the toggle, the slicer will change back to whatever was saved in the bookmark. It would be nice to have an option to "retain" the current selections. This would allow a user to make different selections in the slicer, and then when the click on the…

      Thanks for the feedback! We are now working on a way to control for a bookmark if it just applies the visual properties (like hiding/showing visuals), just the filter properties (like slicer states), or both (the default & what it does now). This will allow you to set up toggles that just switch out the visuals, while not changing the slicers.

      Keep voting on the idea if you want an update when it goes out!

    • 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…

      • Hide pages / sheets

        As a dasboard creator/administrator i think it would be interesting to be able to develop some pages/sheets in the dashboard and not share it when published the whole time...
        The alternative could be having permissions by page/sheet.

        • 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.

          • 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?

              • 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.

                • Conditional Formatting Based on Text

                  For example in a table you can apply conditional formatting based on numbers, percentage or sales, but what about if you want to color formatting based on text taht woukd help a lot for non numeric users!

                  Thanks in advance!

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                                The current bookmarking feature is a great advancement! However, it would be great if we can add the cross filtered views to bookmarks too. It seems that currently we can add views to bookmarks only using filters/slicers.

                                • Save As

                                  I think Microsoft should add a feature where users, to whom I have shared a report via a workspace, should be able to Save As in their personal 'My Workspace'. What is happening in my organization is that I am sharing reports with several people in a workspace. The individual users are filtering for their respective interests and saving a copy with their own name. I am getting multiple versions of the same report in my groups workspace.

                                  • English (UK) and English (US) options for Powerbi.com

                                    I have a Date field in Power BI Desktop that is formatted in the UK format of DD/MM/YYYY.
                                    When I publish this to PowerBI.com the Date format reverts to US format of MM/DD/YYYY even if the field I use is formatted in the Modelling
                                    If I choose a different language in PowerBI.com, for instance Portuguese which uses my desired DD/MM/YYYY format then it reformats the Date as wanted but of course the interface is now in another language.
                                    Therefore I need English (UK) and English (US) options in the Settings window

                                      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

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
