  1. Power Platform Admin Portal

    Allow the Power BI admin role to access the Power Platform admin portal. This will allow the Power BI admin to see all data gateways used in an organization.

  3. Subscribe others to emails for reports or dashboards that have RLS

    Power BI now allows users to subscribe others to emails for reports and dashboards. However, if RLS is applied to the dataset this is not possible. This idea will remove this restriction.

  4. Disable 'Analyze in Excel' at the Workspace Level

    Disabling 'Analyze in Excel' at the Report and Tenant level is available as an Admin, but not at the Workspace level. Ideally, as an Admin, we should be able to control this capability NOT just at the tenant/report level.

    Use case would be when we have various customer groups that have requirements to disable this functionality but do not want to have to lock down the reports (report by report) or at the Tenant level, which impacts all users within Power BI.

  5. Allow workspace tagging

    As an IT administrator responsible for PBI Service management and governance. I would like the ability to create free form tags (Similar to azure portal tags). to track key metadata like a GL Code or responsible business department or other business specific information. These tags should be exposed via the API so they can be used to pull back in reports. tagging assets in the workspace (Reports, dashboards datasets) would be useful as well

  6. Include Reports/Dashboards from Multiple Workspaces in One App

    Similar to ideas around creating multiple apps from one workspace, it would be very beneficial to have the ability to create a high-level app that includes reports from multiple workspaces. For example, our executive team would like to see specific reports from sales, accounting, and fields ops in one app instead of navigating to three different apps/workspaces to view the appropriate reports.

  7. Notify me when credentials for scheduled refresh expire

    Today, 10-15 of my scheduled refreshes for both datasets and dataflows failed because the credentials cached in the PowerBI service for SharePoint expired. It took only a few minutes to renew those credentials, but several hours to re-refresh the dataflows (they all hit the same source, and time out if fired at once. They are scheduled for staggered refresh). If I had been notified by email before the refreshes failed instead of after, I could have easily renewed the credentials in question.

    Note that my user account/password did not change. The access token stored by PBI merely expired.

  8. Dynamics Accessibility in a Workspace | Controlling Report Visibility

    Hi Everyone,

    Firstly, I should say that we might have a lot of workspaces to publish our reports to. Over time it might get confusing to track which content is where and which users have access to it.

    That's why I suggest controlling the visibility of reports for each member. What I mean is that for example we have a workspace for one business division and we have a lot of members in the said division. Instead of creating another workspace we can give users permission to view specific reports in the workspace.

    Benefits of this development:

    *Handling all reports…

  9. Page level audit log

    Anyone who uses Power BI and audits its logs will only be able to audit until dashboard level. The idea is to increase the level of detail to page level so that you can know which pages are beeing visited the most/least and by which users. This new information will enable you to modify your dashborads accordingly, enhance them and much more.

  11. Allow subscriptions to personal bookmarks

    Please add the ability to subscribe to personal bookmarks. The "Subscribe" feature currently sends a snapshot of the default view with no ability to customize filters in the subscription.

    The recent addition of personal bookmarks allows our users to customize reports as needed, and they have been asking for a way to get these personalized bookmark views sent by email. If you could extend the personal bookmarks to the subscription options that would be very helpful.

  12. Allow admins to send notifications via Notification Center

    As a Power BI Administrator, I want to be able to push rich custom notifications to all users or to a subset of users and have those notifications appear in the Notification Center. For example, if we have internal training, new support procedures, critical announcements etc I would be able to send those notifications to users via the Notification Center in Power BI

  13. Disable or prevent Teams from autocreating App Workspace

    Please introduce a global setting to Prevent Teams from creating PowerBi App Workspace automatically when creating a new Team. As the new Workspaces are detached from Teams/Groups this should be a setting to prevent the App Workspaces beeing clotted with empty Workspaces from all our Teams.

  14. Export user list for reports and workspaces

    When creating workspaces, we cannot even copy/paste the list of users or e-mails from another workspace. Allowing export of user lists would save us the trouble of typing the e-mails one by one. I am currently managing a list of 70 users and it is a pain, what about those who have hundreds of users to manage!

  15. how many scheduled refresh

    To have a report showing how many scheduled refresh by capacities.
    In that report, we shall have different granularity from 30 mins, 1 hour, 4 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours in time. In terms of the capcity level, we wish that we can see, dataset, workspace, capacity, 3 levels. Also the owner of the refresh is important.

    The whole idea is because if we have too many schedules happening at the same time. The capacity may not be able to handle it. But we don't have such report, so we don't know how many is happening at a particular time.…

  16. Tracking the WorkSpace details

    If we have a tracking record for each worksapce for the below points we can maintain the workspace in better manner. Since for one workspace have many admins, it is very difficult to identify who added and who removed a member or admin. including deleted the workspace.
    1. Workspace created date
    2. Owner for the Workspace
    3. Members when got added and who added
    4. Members when got removed and who removed
    5. Modification member to ADmin or Admin to Memeber and who modified it.

    better have have this features to maintain the workspace in a good manner.

    Regards,
    Vinod…

  17. Scheduled Refresh

    Need the following options to refresh the data:

    1. Have the ability to refresh specific tables from the Datasets.
    -- We have a report that contains intraday, daily and MTD data. We only need to refresh the daily and MTD data once a day but the intraday reporting needs to be refreshed every 30 minutes.

    2. Have the ability to set the time with increments of up to a minute.
    -- Currently, we only have a 30-minute increment to schedule a dataset refresh and this limits our ability to separate multiple dataset refresh at a given timeframe. For example, I…

  19. Export more than 30 pages to Power Point

    Need to export my entire report and not only the first 30 pages. It is a juge waste of time to do differents reports, export them and regroup them into one new PPT. We absolutely need the possibility to export the entire report or, at least, choose the pages we want to export.

  20. Editable 'DAYS UNTIL EXPIRED' when 'share report with current filters and slicers'

    In Power BI Service, after sharing a report 'with current filters and slicers', go to 'Access' tab and at the bottom, there is a 'Manage shared report views'. By clicking this, it shows a share record with 'DAYS UNTIL EXPIRED'. However, it is not editable.
