  1. Bookmarks to remember formatting of visuals

    I would like a bookmark to remember the formatting settings of a visual.

    My circumstance involves having a bar chart with a slicer. If I set specific "Start" and "End" values on the X axis of a bar chart, they won't be remembered with the Bookmark if I then change those values for a bar chart with filtered data.

    If these formatting parameters can be remembered with the bookmark, then I will be able to use the same visual for all slices of my data, with the axis width adjusting to the desired settings for each bookmark.

  2. Add a dashboard using the Validation Schedule as a source

    A Validation Dashboard is highly recommended for ease of checking the status of TQ's progress towards the 100% target over 5 years set by ASQA.

    I currently produce a report for internal stakeholders. It will also be a useful tool for Product Portfolios and the Academic Board to easily see the status of the validation of qualifications.

    A Validation Schedule spreadsheet is the source and is in SPOT.

    Currently, I report this data to North Executive and the Regional Academic Committee. Each month I download a copy of the Validation Schedule from SPOT and insert a pie graph pivot chart…

  3. Create Dashboard Permission

    It would be great if Read-only users (or a new user type) could create their own dashboards by pinning existing visuals from reports without providing them permission to edit the report.

    In my experience we don't provide our clients with edit access so every time they need a new dashbord they request it to us which becomes a time consuming activity given the volume of clients and reports.

  4. Assign different App landing pages for a Workspace App

    On the Content tab of an App you can specify the App landing page. This is normally set to a dashboard. However this is causing us problems as our top level report filter is for Currency, and is single select with the options controlled by row level security.

    If I create a USD dashboard then that is fine for all report viewers than have access to USD. However, for users that can only view GBP and EUR the dashboard visuals show no data. If I create a GBP dashboard then they can subsequently select this, but this seems clumsy.

  5. Display Account Number with Account Name Description

    SAP and METIS show the account name and account number.
    Would be beneficial to see the number against the account (activity name). ie Account Name: Fees-Short Course / Account Number 552041

    Display the Account Number with the Account Name

  6. Exclude some visual objects from "Page" or "All Pages" Filters

    Hi, I've been using the new filter experiencel, but I can't replace some segmentation filter objects because I have some charts that become useless because they have that filter field as an axis or something like that.

    And maybe exclude a whole page to the all page filters.

  7. Hide Drillthrought where it's doesn't make sense

    When you add a field to drillthroughts on a page, it becomes available to any visual object that have that field, but sometimes is not useful or it's confusing to have it in some pages or objects.

    I think that adding some kind of source or target filter would solve that problem.

  8. Better Printing ability

    Can you make a grid print out exactly how it is set up in power bi? When I export to excel all of the formatting and totals disappear. This is extremely inconvenient for my customer which is constantly on the go and needs to make notes on paper.

  9. Auto run Bookmarks with time interval

    Hello Team,

    I have one requirement from Client saying that all the bookmarks or Pages that i have created in one dashboard should autoplay based on the time we decide (e.g every 5 min or 10 min etc...)

  10. Tile Trimming/Cropping on Dashboards

    I would like to see the ability to crop or trim the tiles that you pin to your Dashboards. At times there is unnecessary white space on the perimeter of the visuals that I would like to clean up, but i am only able to resize the tile. The ability to do this right from the Dashboard if you are the creator seems like a useful feature to make Dashboards more attractive and compact

  11. allow testing alerts

    In the "Manage Alerts" sidebar, there should be an option to instantly test the alert.
    Testing complicated flows that are triggered by Power BI alerts can require a lot of back and forth testing between the two services and this process is slowed down by having to wait for the next hour or until the underlying data source changes.

  13. Adding an option in a graph to add more data points

    in chats, we can display only graph data points. While doing dashboards I literally face a problem to add additional data points in the same chat so I used the table, can u combine both tables and chats into the same module.

  15. dashboard drill through

    i want to be able to drill through in the dashboard view and not having to go to the report view

    i have to turn on the drill through every time i leave the report page, it would be better if it stayed on and if i could manually put it off if i don't need it.

  16. Increase Export Data Limits

    In late 2016, Power BI improved our export data options to allow exporting up to 150,000 rows to Excel from a visual on a Power BI dashboard for Pro users. If you require higher limits, please vote on this idea. If you have more specific requirements, please leave them in the comments.

  18. Add search parameters for Domain name, and tenantID GUID to Commercial CXD Health Dashboard..

    tenantID in Commercial CXD Health Dashboard should also be searchable by the GUID. Not sure where to get the 6 digit tenantID. Also, it would be nice to be able to search on the tenant's domain name (I.E. azlabgg.onmicrosoft.com). Some companies have different names associated with them so it could make it difficult to figure out which Name their overall customer is listed under in the dashboard. Being able to put in one of their domains would be useful to resolve that issue.

  19. text wrap in data labels

    We need to be able to turn on text wrap for data labels, so that they're easier to read and fit on the screen better.

  20. Move "Add a comment" to lower part of choices

    To show "Export data" as the top choice had great value to my business. I do not see the need to show "Add A comment" as the first item" it distracts me to do the exporting and reporting daily.
