  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.

    • 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!

      • 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.

            • 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?

              • 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.

                • visuals - add options for movement & flash

                  The human eye reacts to movement. Has there been any investment to leverage this data processing method into visuals? After all, Power BI is most powerful as a live digital experience – not the on screen equivalent of a piece of paper.
                  Some examples that come to mind - adding a play function to a line chart that shows the graphics move from left to right over time with cues triggered by activity outside preset values. Adding an automatic flash, or subtle highlight feature to data points that fall outside preset limits may be impactful and draw focus to the…

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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…

                          • Favorites Dashboard - right click - open report in new tab

                            Favorites Dashboard - right click - open report in new tab to have a possibility to open multiple dashboards/reports in multiple tabs. Now you can only click and go into one. It would be nice to have a possibility to open multiple dashboards at the same time in different tabs/windows.

                                  Need to be able to change the y-axis start/end values on pinned visuals (in the dashboard visual settings).

                                  We have multiple dashboard visuals showing sliced data. The axis are dynamically updated for that data and end up not being the same (ie. one is 1-100, the other is 1-400). Need to be able to set the axis on the dashboard visuals so they are the same. If we were to set the report visual to a static axis (ie. Where it's automatically set as 1-10,000 -- to show axis manually set to 1-400, or 1-10,000), the data would either be…

                                  • Dashboard tiles

                                    I would like for dashboard tiles to be more flexible as far as sizing. I wanted to put a skinny tile at the top for a single line of text. I would also like to be able to group tiles under a title. For example, I have 9 KPIs I am presenting on a dashboard. Four are in 1 category, 3 in another, and 2 in another. I can't currently indicate what group they fall in.

                                      A way to filter the date when viewing the dashboard, so it will affect all graphs displayed.
