  1. Coloring Scheme in TreeMap

    In a TreeMap, one should be able to change the coloring scheme with a gradient based on a different parameter. Thanks

  3. Twitter Widget Tile

    Allow creation of a tile that integrates the official twitter widget code that can be found at https://twitter.com/settings/widgets (have to be logged in to create one). This would allow a real-time updating feed of tweets about your product to be displayed on your dashboard, bringing the customer's voice straight to you.

  4. Better visibility for menu at left

    Having the ability to adjust the font of the left menu would be very helpful. At present, the gray-on-gray default setting can be difficult to read for a number of users. The option to use a more high-contrast color scheme would be great.

  5. Data Refresh: make the dashboard creation process more automated!

    I have a dashboard on which I show some values and metrics regarding specific customers.

    I have scheduled an automatic data refresh from a blob: once a day we refresh our data.

    If a new customer comes up in our data (from our table in the blob) would be possible to automatically make it showing up also in the dashboard (without any needs to manually pin the new customer value and the relative visualization from the report to the dashboard)?

  7. Report header and title bar occupies around 20% of real estate

    Title bar and the report header occupies around 20% of the real estate which makes users to always scroll the dashboard. Is there a way to hide this or better merge the title bar with "Microsoft Power BI Preview" and report header?

  12. Region maps within Power BI

    The PowerView dashboard will become more robust when it is possible to have regions integrated into the maps (such as country/City/Zipcode/County etc.). In the Power BI designer Preview it seems that the first step has been taken to build this functionality and further development of this feature would be a great. Seeing the filters/slicers work directly on an interactive map (that are not just bubbles but can actually represent a geographical location) is a very powerful visual tool.

    Hi Thomas, I think you’re asking for a feature that already exists. You can use the ‘Filled Map’ visualization type in both the Designer and on the web. They’re fully interactive and filters/slicers work with them.

    The only limitation is that you can’t pin them to the dashboard – is this your request? We are working on that!

  13. I can maintain a Catalog of all my Dashboards and team dashboards

  15. Sectioning the area to analyze charts of interests

    Sectioning the areas to analyze charts of interests

    Sectioning the area to analyze charts of interests. (ex. qualitative, quantitative, impact, etc analysis)--good if drilling down also align to the interest on analysis. (At the moment all the charts are changing upon a selection made)

  16. Sharing Dashboard charts - Create once, use many!

    It would be nice if the user can create the chart tiles and share them so that they can be used directly in other dashboards created by the same user or other users (Similar to sharing Power Query datasets I think!)

  18. When I share a dashboard, please cc me.

    When I share a dashboard, it's sent by Power BI for Office 365 [mailto:no-reply@powerbi.com]. Therefore I have no record that I sent it. Could you cc me on the mail, like SharePoint does?
    Applies to Power BI service and the iPad app.
