  1. Email Subscription Snapshots Image Quality and Size

    The email subscription feature is great where the user will get the snapshot of the dashboard/report in the email.

    However, I noticed that the image is low quality and appear small in the email content. It will be great if the user is allow set the preferences on the image quality and size in the email content.

    Currently, it's too small and low quality to be really useful, and this is a frequent requests from many of my customers. Though I tell them that it's supported but they are let down later by the usefulness of it due to the…

  2. Add markers or reference lines for all chart types

    When creating any type of chart, adding a marker or reference line to indicate current date, target date/goal, milestone points, etc. would be a nice feature to have.

  4. Row Level Security for Microsoft Teams Private Channels

    Would it be possible to integrate Row Level Security with Teams Channels, so that users with access to a specific Private Channel in Teams are only able to view what that Channel is allows to view.

    I have a number of reports which contain data which need to be restricted to different stakeholders. I'd like to be able to communicate to the entire Team around refresh progress and to highlight discrepancies, however some of the team are able to view all of the data while others can only view a subset.

    My idea is to allow Power BI's RLS to…

  5. Dynamic column name update in dashboard/reports

    When ever the field/column name will be changed/updated in the source. The same should be updated automatically with the next refresh in the data model as well as in all the objects we have used in reports/dashboards. This facility is available in QlikView.

  6. Sort the numbers on axes correctly (not 1,2,25,3,4)

    Numbers on axes are very time demanding to sort correctly. It should be an option to sort them like normal numbers.
    E.g.:
    1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
    rather than
    1,10,11,12,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

  9. Conditional visibility of a visual

    It would be so useful having an option to make visibility of an object conditional.

  10. Comments and Section Access in PBI App

    Being able to add comments in your reports and dashboards is great on both entire report and visual level. PBI Apps are filtered based on who has access to the app, if @mention has not been granted access to the app, it would be nice for @mention to just receive a snapshot of the visual or report/dashboard concerned and be able to just comment/reply on that and not necessarily be able to see the entire report/dashboard.

  12. 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)

  13. Power BI Preview (before Publish)

    I am an ASP net dev in MSVS and we have the ability to see our work as any www user would via a preview in the browser (any browser), Power BI as no preview before publish. Therefore I can not see the final and exact user experience of the output. You see a preview in Excel, MS Access, MS Word. But not Power BI (note I am not talking about a print preview) am talking about a exact preview of the user experience before publish or distribution.

  15. Anonymize pbix file with one click

    Often people can't provide their pbix files with their errors because the data is confidential. Trying to recreate an anonymous test file to recreate the error takes a lot of time, and often the error can't be recreated.

    Please can you create an "anonymize" button that would pretty much randomise all the data? Then this can be posted to the discussion board as a supporting document when posting questions.

  16. Button Page Navigation/Slicer Sync for Bookmarks

    The problem: Using a button to navigate to different pages of the report while keeping one or more filters synced across the entire report.
    At this time using bookmarks will not keep slicers synced, so one solution would be to add this option to bookmarks.
    Another solution would be to add report page navigation to button actions.
    My current workaround for this process is to create dynamic urls via DAX in a measure and add those to a web url action for a button. However, this seems too tedious of a process for something that could probably be a simple…

  17. Bookmarks on BI Service at Dashboard level

    Loving the new bookmarking feature, however working within an organisation where Power BI has just been introduced the majority of our dashboards are pinned reports to dashboard level. It would be AMAZING if the bookmarks (linked to images) worked on the dashboard level.

    If you can pin an entire report and the interactive visuals work, logic dictates that any image-based bookmarks should also work. Also adding bookmarks to filters would be heaven.

    I appreciate that bookmarks are in preview but would welcome any indication of further bookmark developments?

  18. Parameter Pane in Power BI Service

    It would be better if we have a parameter pane in report view in the Power BI Service to modify the parameter instead of going inside settings to do so. Like when we open the report in the top next to filters there should be an option to change the parameters directly.

  19. sort order legend

    Sort order of Legend label and bar chart order option:

    The legend is automatically set to show the first item at the bottom of a bar chart stack but show the first item at the top of the Legend label list.

    Please add an option in formatting the Legend so we can reverse the Legend label list. this would enable me to have the first item at the top of the bar chart stack with the first item at the top of the label list, thus the two match up.

  20. Automatic rolling rows where the rows of a list can continuously roll to the end

    One thing we would love to have is rolling rows (for lack of a better term) in reports so that when real estate is limited, the rows of a longer list can continuously roll to the end and back to let viewers see the whole list. As an example, here is our report (I gave you access). The top table “Latest Incidents (Last 2 Days)” shows the most impactful incidents in our service within the last 48 hours. Due to limited space, we can only show 4 lines. Readers have to clicking the bar roller to see the rest. A…
