  1. Bug: View insights with no dashboards

    If I try to view insights for a dataset, but have no dashboards, nothing occurs, where I would expect a base dashboard to be created, or an error to be presented, suggesting that the error create a new dashboard in order to view insights.

  2. Publish the templates you are using for showing data from the different services?

    Could you publish the templates you are using for showing data from the different services. There are several calculated fields that cannot be seen in the web browser, and I would like to do similar fields in the Power BI desktop

  3. Need to resize tiles for mobile vs tablet vs web

    Screen real estate is poorly optimized for the variety of devices that may view a dashboard...

    See Datazen format options for each device and tile type...

  5. Ability to Group tiles on the Dashboard

    Ability to Group tiles on the Dashboard,
    currently we have to add empty blank tiles so that new Metrics start from a new line, this option doesn’t scale well.

  7. Push changes to content packs to all users

    It's common that we'll produce a content pack, which we will later revise. However, consumers of this data need to delete their existing reports and re-import them.

    There should be an option to support central administration of content packs, which can then be deployed to all users.

  8. Rendering dashboards on SFDC

    When sharing dashboards based on SaaS solutions like SFDC/ CRM, the Dashboard user's credentials should be used for populating the reports/ dashboards and not the credentials that was used by the developer. This is critical particularly for SFDC and similar sales automation users

  9. Dashboard data subset (user access control)

    If i am making a dashboard for lets say 50 products then product managers who will be visiting the dashboard should only see the data for their relevant products rather seeing the performance for all the products while some have permissions to see all the data.

  14. Ability to fix chart value labels like a text box,

    Ability to fix chart formats and labels. Name values show "XXX......" when there is room to show the whole word. This for example of pie charts, the labels/value name should be able to appear entirely, even if it takes word wrap. Make it like a text box like function.

  15. Allow for third party companies to create, submit and publish their own services

    Much the same as developing an app for the Windows store. Develop a service for PowerBI, submit it for approval then publish in the services section

  16. Control Update Frequency of Direct Connect Tiles

    Control Update Frequency of Direct Connect Tiles (e.g. Azure SQL). Some real-time dashboard would benefit from this greatly. Perhaps introduce this feature in a premium more expensive SKU. Update certain tiles every minute! :)

  18. Show values when touching a data point.

    I can see graphs in the mobile app, but can't get more detail. For example I use a tree histogram to show relative costs per member of staff in each office. So I can see the most expensive offices. But I can't answer the question of how much the most expensive office costs.

    The web and desktop versions display a pop up on mouse over. Add this to the android app.

  19. Allow Custom Datasource/Report/Dashboard Templates

    Allow IT professionals to publish custom templates for reports (IE a well production report with certain applicable charts). It should be able to show up in Get Data and operate like the existing SQL Audit/Google Analytics/Other precaned report.)
