  3. Expand a Record or Table within a column (using Power Query):

    Expand Feature –
    Ability to choose ‘how’ to expand a record or a table within a column (in Power Query) such as the following…
    • Show drop down choice to expand into new rows (as it currently does) OR expand back into the cell as a comma separated value (which shows all readable text, not just a record)

  5. Enhanced the Search Engine in Power BI

    It would be nice if search engine could be enhanced to remove few additional steps. Currently, If I have two source which have common column I need to join them in Power BI Designer(Desktop) version, I would like to do that through search engine in Power BI (cloud- non desktop version) , since it already recognized where clause function. This can make very power for end users.

  13. Relative Value Plotting

    Allow a user to specify that the different values selected be normalized and all plotted on a relative scale. This would highlight trends between data values that aren't necessarily on the same scale. Like price of houses in an area vs number of homes sold.

  17. VSO easy one-to-many dependency tracking

    During release/triage meetings and for reporting, we want an easy way to see all the dependences (e.g., Tasks, Bugs, Issues) regardless of whether they are “Parent-Child” or other link types (e.g., Predecessor-Successor). This allows 1) teams to see the full scope of dependences and 2) (at a program level) we can prioritize dependencies based on how many different user stories they impact.

  18. Arrows on a Power Map to represent movement

    Within Power View and Power Map you can - as far as I know - only display information on a certain point (country, city, zip code , etc) However, some of my clients would like to see the movement between different points, for example the movement of goods from The Netherlands to Germany. Wouldn't it be nice if you could plot an arrow on the map to represent the movement?
