  3. Caption Connected to Charts

    In Tableau you have the ability to add a caption that stays connected to the chart / table. This is important to a lot of our data as sourcing is required in a lot of the contracts we have with our research partners. We also have a lot of needs to note things like rain impacting results. The caption feature should be able to be turned on and off but always be connected to the chart. If you use text boxes in the reports those don't travel with the chart when pinned to a dashboard.

  4. Need social features on content packs (org)

    We want the ability for users to have conversations in Power BI on content packs (for example, the user can ask a question on how to use the content pack and the publisher can answer it).

    Another social feature we'd like is rating on content packs. Users can rate them and find highly rated content packs

  12. 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)

    Scenario –
    I have a SharePoint list with 14 records and a field on a given record contains a list of items that are separated by a comma. When the data is imported into Power Query, the data shows…

  14. 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.
