  1. Deactivate measures

    Allow to pick a number of measures and de-activating them, Instead of using the "//" sign for each one separately.
    The reason is when making a substantial change to a query with a large number of measures, the refresh process takes a lot longer than it should. when disabling the measures the process shortens substantially.

  2. Operational Financial Summary

    The data structure for our quarterly reports include actuals, $ and % variance per property (as well as totals and SSS totals) for QTD to Budget, YTD to Budget, and YTD YOY for revenue, expenses and NOI. Could this be replicated somehow as a filter/export option? Would be a game changer in quarterly report time spent...and a great visual!

  3. Incorporação de relatórios

    Eu pretendo usar o powerbi para gerar os relatórios para meus clientes e disponibilizar em meu site, para acesso logado destes clientes, para que cada um possa ver apenas o seu relatório. O contra está sendo em exibir apenas para outros usuários pró. Minha sugestão é criar uma forma de compartilhamento que permita que uma vez incorporado ao meu site, e o usuário logado ele possa ver os relatórios dele. Atualmente só consigo exibir para usuários pro ou compartilhar com membros da minha equipe, o que faz pouco sentido.

  4. Change the Report Icon within the App Workspace

    On the PowerBI.com Home Page, it would be useful to be able to change the icon of Reports, so users can more clearly identify which report they need to be looking at.

  5. Partially dynamic titles for visualisations using text and measures

    While you can now use a measure in the title of a visualisation it would be great to be able to combine that with text.

    so your measure could be set up to show the selected year for example but you can then use this measure in different titles.

    So one could be "Turnover by" [Selected Year] and the other one "operating Result by" [selected year] and you wouldnt have to set up 2 measures you just change the text part of the specific header and leave the last bit in brakets [ ] to be the dynamic measure

  6. Customize or enlarge the spinning wheel

    When the report refreshes, we have a very tiny balck colored dots that looks like a spinning wheel.Can we either make it look bigger or allow us to customize it. it is very tiny to figure out if we have to wait for the report to finish whatever it is doing.

  7. Please fix the export to PDF function! Why does it cut off half the page

    Its not an idea, as you could do this previously prior to the update. When you select export to pdf it cuts off half the page. There is a huge white empty space on form the left margin. Please fix this so dashboards can be PDF;s from margin to marign

  8. Option to have axis titles on by default

    I think it should be possible to have an option to turn axis titles on by default in the settings menu. If you have a lot of charts and want to turn these on it can take a while to click through them all in a large report.

  9. Allow 'Edit Interactions' for Filters pane, or add new collapsable "Canvas" pane

    I like the new Filters pane, but I think you really want to think about allowing the same kind of "Edit Interactions" for fields in the Filters pane as you do for any other visual.

    Here's why: I would dearly like to ditch slicers from a report in favour of the Filters pane in order to free up precious screen real-estate, but often slicers are set up so that they only filter some things and not others, whereas things in the Filters pane are global, as far as I can tell.

    I was hoping that the filters pane was going…

  10. SYNC Hierarchy Slicers across multiple sheets

    Unlike regular slicers, hierarchy slicer does not have the option to be sync. across multiple sheets. It would be nice to be able to drive the report based on selections made in the hierarchy slicer

  12. Drill down interactivity and Drill down mode on default

    Could you please look on improving the drill down options on a map visual, also drill down sync between two or more visuals doesn't work. We'll have to simultaneously drill down. Also it would be nice if there is an option to make the drill down button to be on in default

    there is a lot of space blank at left and right side in outlook email while sending dashboard via subscription. The image is too narrow. it should be fit to page to see the content better. Specially matrix visuals.

  14. About the tooltip of the Dashboard tile

    Even if the report tooltip feature is disabled,
    the tooltip becomes enabled when the tile is pinned to the dashboard.
    I want the tooltip to remain disable in this situation.

  16. Adjustable Shadow Size

    It would be nice to have the ability to adjust the shadow size, not just the direction. i.e., how far the shadow is from the object.

  17. Ensure Filter Pane Hidden Feature applies to Teams

    If the Filter Pane is hidden before publishing a report from the Desktop App to Online, and the report is then added to a Team's Channel Tab, the Filter Pane is visible. It would be great if the Filter Pane is hidden from the Desktop then no matter where the report is reflected, the Filter Pane is hidden so that this only needs to happen in one place.

  18. Viewer Role should have the ability to pin visuals to Dashboards

    Since RLS works in Dashboards, any viewers would only see data they have access to. Please allow the viewer role access to Pin tiles to Dashboard.

  20. Errors when Editing Dashboard with Multiple Users

    When two people are viewing / interacting with the same published dashboard from a PowerBI.com workspace the tiles present visual glitches or get stuck when a user moves said tile or tries to edit it.


    • Create a dashboard in a shared workspace in PowerBI.com

    • Allow two users A and B to see it from different sessions (different machines and/or browsers)

    • Let user A move a tile from the dashboard

    • Sometimes, User A won't be able to move the tile as user B is watching it

    • Also, User B will also sometimes see how a tile disappears because another user is…
