  1. copy data to clipboard

    Copy Data to Clipboard should be a simple right-click context menu capability --- as it has been in Tableau for years. Often, user wants data being displayed without going through export to CSV and import into Excel. Just simple copy-paste of data out of visual to clipboard to ... whatever intended ... is extremely useful.

    • Allow 'Edit Interactions' for Filters pane, or add new collapsable "Canvas" pane

      I like the new Filters pane, but I think you really want to think about allowing the same kind of "Edit Interactions" for fields in the Filters pane as you do for any other visual.

      Here's why: I would dearly like to ditch slicers from a report in favour of the Filters pane in order to free up precious screen real-estate, but often slicers are set up so that they only filter *some* things and not others, whereas things in the Filters pane are global, as far as I can tell.

      I was hoping that the filters pane was going…

      • Is there no way to expand beyond just the show data in the visualization. IE add extra data in show data that's not shown in the visual.

        When using a visualization that supports 'Show Data' need a robust way to add more to the 'show data' ie adding extra data columns within show data and not just data being shown from the selected visual.

          • Dropdown lists should not be limited by the width of a slicer

            When there are multiple slicers in a line, we can only see the first half contents from the dropdown list.
            The dropdown list should be the same width as the text length not the width of the slicer.

            Please refer to https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Dropdown-list-not-show-entire-content/m-p/563932#M266079

            • Button that updates datasets and dashboard

              We'd like to have a button that you can put on your dashboard in order to trigger a dataset/dashboard refresh. That way we can always work with the latest data.
              We have configured the scheduled update but it is not quite working out for us.
              Thank you!

              • Add Filter Functionality on Dashboard

                Many reports could speak to a unique Id (e.g., location, office, School etc.) However, dashboards need to become more dynamic!

                To have an opportunity to filter across all reports on a dashboard when that filter is utilized within each report should be a functionality.

                • Adjustable gridsize

                  It would be a great feature if you could adjust the grid size to a specific size in pixels. If you than were able to (temporarily) disable the Snap function by let's say pressing down the Alt key it would be perfect.

                  • Power BI Home: Theming

                    We have themes in Dashboards and reports but not Power BI Home. Would be great to have this added to the backlog. That way we can align the Home experience with the rest of the look and feel of our reports and dashboards (incl logo, text tiles for links etc.)

                    • NO MORE VISUAL HEADERS

                      The user should be able to do every action with a right click on the visual, or just make it visible only when you select a visual, but not when you hover over it. They shouldn't take up space when you are not using them, even in Power BI Desktop.

                        A lot of people have pushed power BI as a designer tool and if you could embed this feature would be amazing for advanced design techniques

                            • Permission rights to view and export by user (sub)group

                              Hi,

                              We are trying to set up apps which are used by multiple user groups. Because of privacy-sensitive data, some of the tabs can only be viewed with certain permissions. It is currently not possible to give users export rights for just one app, or for part of a app. Additionally, we can't find a way to allow users to see only part of an app (i.e. only certain tabs).

                              Would it be possible to implement this feature? I.e. a user can be assigned rights to view only certain tabs and/or export only specific objects or data.

                                • Dashboard Printing

                                  Our sales reps need the ability to select various visuals pinned to a dashboard. Example, the 1st, 3rd, & 17th visuals pinned on a dashboard. Then when printing, it must be displayed at least as big as it is from a standard zoom of 100% on any internet browser (not very tiny - like it currently does when you print preview).

                                    While making Power BI even more user-friendly and enterprise class, I think it’s time to address source control for dashboards.

                                    Pbix report can currently leverage existing dataset in the Power BI Service. IAS a Power BI developer, I would like to author a dashboard that leverages multiple reports published the the Power BI service.

                                    I would like the pbix file to throw errors if it incorporates visualisation elements in reports that either no longer exist or contain error messages.

                                    I would like the file to include the streaming and embedding options that dashboards authored on the service include but see…

                                    • Email Subscription Snapshots Image Quality and Size

                                      The email subscription feature is great where the user will get the snapshot of the dashboard/report in the email.

                                      However, I noticed that the image is low quality and appear small in the email content. It will be great if the user is allow set the preferences on the image quality and size in the email content.

                                      Currently, it's too small and low quality to be really useful, and this is a frequent requests from many of my customers. Though I tell them that it's supported but they are let down later by the usefulness of it due to the…

                                      • Allow a pinned visual to be connected to either a page or a bookmark

                                        Currently, when you pin a visual to a dashboard and you click on that visual it returns to the page from which it originated. However, with the advent of Bookmarks, it is becoming increasingly common to connect bookmarks to buttons on that page with each button showing different visuals for that page. It would be nice when a visual on a dashboard is clicked, the user is sent to the Bookmark from which it originated. This could be an option at pin time.
