  1. Navigation and Action Button

    Navigation and Action Button
    It would be useful to have button that navigates to another sheet or website.
    The navigation button is useful when you want to provide customized navigation options, for example, if you want to go to another sheet and clear all selections.
    The button should have the possibility of add one or more actions that will be executed before navigation.
    1) Possible Navigation could be :
    • None: no navigation action is performed when clicking the button, but you can add another basic action.
    • Go to first sheet: open the first sheet of the app.

  3. Drill through column for Tables

    It would be very nice if we could add a button- or linkcolumn on a table to drill through the data row. Would be more intuitive for people then right-clicking.

  7. Sync Slicers Across Bookmarks

    Please allow for slicers (such as relative date slicers) to sync across bookmarks. Currently if you have multiple bookmarks, the date range doesn't stay the same if you bookmarked when another range was selected.

    Add an option to either ignore select filters across bookmarks (so don't bookmark the date range, keep it across all bookmarks and propogate changes that way)

  9. Language setting in Service impacts thousand separator and decimal notation => need regional setting

    In Power BI Service you can change the language in the settings. There is no option to change regional settings (date format, decimal notation, thousand seperator).

    Please add a 'regional setting'
    Changing the language impacts both the language as the regional settings, most annoyingly the decimal notation.
    English sets the decimal notation and thousand seperator to US format.
    Dutch (Nederlands) sets an amount as 1.234,56 (European notation)
    French (francais) sets an amonunt as 1 234,56

    regional setting must be language independent. Please add regional setting.

  11. notification

    Push notifications did not work on the New Workspace preview.
    When I pin a new dashboard in the New Workspace, the app or service did not push any notifications on Power BI, so my colleagues will not know what I've published. Please help to solve this bug. Manually notify them is a stupid action.

  12. Add identifier icon for Object Type in Selection Pane

    Once a lot of objects are added to a page, its difficult to identify by name, the type of the object. It would be great if a small icon can be added on the front of the object name in Selection Pane as an identifier of the object (similar to the icons we have in visualization tab).

  15. Alert when data does not change (option)

    The essence of the alerts is sending notifications when the data is above the threshold.

    Currently, Power Bi says: "Alerts are only sent if your data changes", this has to be an option (checkbox).

    The default behaviour should be: "Alert if the value is above the threshold".

  19. Bex Query key and text display with direct query

    When we connect power bi with Bex Query in direct connection mode it only shows the text not key .
    Key should also be displayed . This is a limitation due to whichb users are not comfortable to use the tool.
