  1. Ability to increase the Legend width or wrap text the legend information without changing the width of the visualization

    At the moment there is no way we can arrange the legends as per the space on our visualization. With the default options there is no way to word wrap the legend. We need to be able to increase the Legend width or wrap text the legend information without changing the width of the visualization

  3. Honor character return and line feed characters in ToolTips

    Tooltips currently ignore any carriage return (chr(13)) or line feed (chr(10)) characters, limiting how tooltip text can be formatted to enhance the end user experience.

  4. Allow Dashboard comments to either be linked to a bookmark or save with a filter.

    The new comment ability has potential, but when leaving comments on a published dashboard, we want to leave comments related to the data. For example, to look into a high surge on a certain day for a certain company. The comments seem to be unconnected with the actual dashboard, which limits the functionality of the comment. We want to see the ability to link filters applied to the dashboard to comments, to go back and review to data, or else build comments into bookmarks some how.

  5. Is it possible to only capture a single value in one of 2 different slicers?

    I have a Calendar Year column and a Fiscal Year column in the date-dimension table.
    I put them in 2 slicers.
    Is it possible to only capture a single value in one of the 2 slicers? (but not at the same time)
    For example:
    * When I select a single value in Slicer1, I can't select a value in Slicer2.
    * When I select a single value in Slicer2, I can't select a value in Slicer1.

    Better pop up an alert/message for this or grey-it-out...

  6. A possiblity to remove the scroll bar of linegraph or make it less wider

    I use text-variables on the x-axis, which leads to the problem that there is always a scroll bar, which in my case would not be needed.
    I have no clue, how it could be removed or if it is even possible.
    Thanks for help

  7. Make a an Embeded Report easier to access through Azure

    Situation: I have a dashboard that I want to distribute to more than 100+ non-related entities that may or may not have Sharepoint or Power BI Pro. But, I want the Report to be secure. Currently my only option is to go through a series of complex codes and token creation steps, etc. (e.g. App owns the data).

    Idea #1: I would like to be able to have a simpler method of sharing dashboards with a client (or multiple users). When a Power BI customer (me) purchases Azure capacity, it's a very cumbersome process to follow the token creation and…

  8. Swipe visuals to the left or right

    Swipe visuals (cards, graphics, tables, etc.) to the left or right to show me another visual.

    See this example of IBM Cognos Mobile:

  9. Restricted access to comments in Dashboards

    It would be a great help if it was possible to restrict the access to Dashboard comments based on either row level security or the person you "tag" in the comments. Sometimes we have comments that are only relevant for some employees (for example comments related to sales organization in UK only visible for UK employees) and we don't want these comments to be available for every users.
    Regards,
    Helen

  10. 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.

  11. Power BI report portal - localization on folder names

    THE power BI report portal inherits browser language settings. But the folder names displayed still stick to the native language. New setting must be allowed to change the language for the folder names as well.

    The portal headers are translated well but the folder names are in english

  12. It would be great if you include the column level security in Power BI.

    It would be great if you include the column level security , so developers can create the column level access and provide the access to based on the users requirement

    Example : Team manager can see the performance of his employee but employee should not see, so here if we have column level access it would be really helpful to give the access according to their level.

    Expectation Results: Manager can see the performance of his employees and not visible for his employee except his performance.

    Thanks in advance

  13. 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.

    This idea is more specific than some similar Legend sort…

  15. Option to have color backgrounds for dashboard tiles that correspond to the reports they came from.

    Like the way categorical color coding works in PBI. Have an option to automatically assign non-intrusive (perhaps pastel?) color backgrounds to tiles in a dashboard. Each color corresponds to a particular report, this will allow a viewer to intuitively sense which tiles originate from a particular report.

  16. Change the colors of tile when republished the Report.

    When we are changing colors in our report in Power BI Desktop and publish to Power BI Service, The tile color does not change of previously existing tile. It would be helpful if the tile color changes as changed when republishing the report.

  17. Copy/paste object size

    Please add an option to copy/paste the object size like chart/table size. For chart, we can have the option to copy/paste plot area - every chart will look similar in size including its plot area.
