  1. Ability to export and import Dashboard tiles

    We need a way to export the dashboard pinned tiles, so that we can import that in each environment once I upload the reports again in the environment. Currently we have to manually pin the tiles and the order / size everything gets messed up and has to be manually managed / updated.

  2. Table format in Dashboard

    When you pin a table to the dashboard it seems like all columns receive equal spacing. They should be formatted according to the column size as per the report view. It would be good if this could just be fixed as a two column table, where the first column is a small field, currently looks a bit silly on the dashboard.

  3. Allow me to see who shared a dashboard with me and who the point of contact is

    I have a dashboard in my account that has been shared with me. I want to know more about the dashboard. For example, how was a visualization done, where did the source data come from, etc etc.

    To be able to do that, I need to be able to see who shared the dashboard with me and whoever shared it with me probably has a point of contact they'd refer me to (if not themselves) for follow-up.

    This is crucial for collaboration and evolving the art of PowerBI in a group that isn't necessarily closely working together.

  7. Raise error for DAX

    Give the possibility to flag a user defined error , for example: IF ([Unitsinstock]<0, RAISERROR ("Units cannot be negative")). At the moment I resort to LN(0) to flag an unwanted result.

  8. Since you use this forums to help you decide what to build next, I suggest that you make as soon as possible Industrial/Operational Slides

    When we meet customers are are industrials, we do not want to show your "marketing" slides like: cost per mile, number of trips etc. We want to see gauge with: Reliability, OEE performance, utilization % etc

  9. App Store Infrastructure for Visual Plugins

    I've just completed some entries for your Visualization contest. It was a time consuming and laborious effort. I think that not too many developers will want to contribute future visuals, features and bug requests without sufficient motivation.

    If you really want to encourage developers to write visualizations for Power BI, you should setup some kind of "Visualizations App Store" infrastructure where a customer or consultant can buy a license for the visualization in a variety of per seat / per year options and the revenue can be split between Microsoft and the developer.

    Microsoft could also have an all-you-can-eat model…

  10. Fromatting Enhancements

    When are we expecting a similar formatting experience like how formatting is done in excel? (i.e. location/size alignment, snap to grid, labeling options, primary and secondary data that allows different chart types, etc.) Most likely these are in the pipeline and are enhancements that will be happening in the short term. Keep up the good work.

  11. Dashboard data and sql queries

    It would be great if sql queries can be used to filter data in the chart. Also if dashboard data can be restricted based on user login.

  12. Authorisation based on groups so new employees automatically have access to existing dashboards

    If you share a dashboard with all employees or with one team of 10 employees and a new employee joins the organisation, this new employee needs automatically access to all shared dashboards

  14. Selective filtering

    It would be great if dashboard creators could have control over what each viewer could do in terms of filtering. Maybe have filtering control options built in to the share function or within the dashboard itself.

  18. Ability to draw realtions on a map

    It should be possible to draw relations from a sender to a recipient. This would be a great new feature to visualize supply chains etc. on a map.
