  1. Analyze which visuals are used across your organization from an admin perspective

    It would be very useful to have an admin overview to see which visuals are used in reports across your organization. Especially for custom visuals to see if these visuals are certified, uncertified or organizational allowed visuals.

    These insights can be used from an admin perspective to analyze the impact before disabling custom visuals on tenant level.

  2. 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.

  3. Migrate V1 Workspace to V2

    There are many features that are not available on V1 Workspace.
    When can we get to migrate the existing V1 Workspaces to V2?

  5. Publish dataset only

    It would be easier to maintain a shared dataset and apply changes (aka publish new and overwrite) to it. If an organization uses one shared dataset for multiple reports relying on it publishing it without a mock/fake report just to be able to publish would be great!

  6. The ability to message all Power BI users from the Power BI service

    If you run a Power BI platform for a lot of users you should be able to send /push notifications to them. We are currently experiencing high fail rates and it would be great to alert all users that we're busy looking into it.

  7. 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.

  8. Change the fact that workspace App updates cause restore of reshare permissions for underlying datrasets

    After a workspace App being updated, the reshare permissions are restored for a dataset, despite having these been previously removed. This behaviour supposes a security risk as it limits control on users resharing reports.

  10. Expose Analysis Services perspective

    Provide visibility in the Power BI service when a live connection to Analysis Services is connected to a perspective rather than Model.

    When we look at settings for a live connection dataset in PowerBI.com, we can see the server and database in the data source credentials, but there is no indication of whether we are connecting to Model or a perspective. If we download the PBIX file, unzip it and look in the Connections file, we can see "CUBE=<PerspectiveName>" in the connection string, but that is the only place to view it. Perspective is not available via the REST APIs…

  11. Add a way to organize and categorize Apps

    We really need a better way to organize and categorize PBI Apps. Larger enterprises have many variants of Apps from those containing high quality reports for decision makers to the self-service ad-hoc reports with less quality requirements. Please add ways for the admin to f.ex. create groups or tags to seperate various "types" of Apps. I really like the functionality for certified datasets so maybe a similar feature could also be added for Apps as a sort of "Mark of quality". This again would have to be made available to a select group of users or groups so the admin…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. The free users should not receive "Upgrade to Pro account" notifications

    Popups, requests to upgrade to premium for free users makes sense if they are not in an active directory corporate account. However, if there are free users consuming reports created by premium users then it is tricky to have all this interference with report consumption because these are corporate users and many do not have permissions to upgrade or invite others to the work space. Please remove this option.

  15. Log failed Power BI operations in Office 365 Audit Logs accessible through Office 365 Security and Compliance> Search Audit Logs

    At current when operations occur within Power BI and are successful (IsSuccess=-1), the operation and its details are logged and accessible through Office 365 Audit Logs. However, when the operation is unsuccessful the operation and its details are not logged in O365 Audit Logs.

    For example, if a dataset refresh is fails, there is no audit data reflecting that failure.

    This is important information in order to understand what operations are occurring that are not successful so that they can be resolved.

  16. When Publishing an App using a Shared Dataset then Permissions must currently be manually added to the Dataset - can this be automated

    When an App is Published that is using a Shared Dataset (i.e. the reports use a dataset from a different workspace) then the permissions on the dataset are NOT updated in the same way that the Dataset permissions are updated if it is not shared (i.e. the reports use a dataset in the same workspace).

    I have raised a service call (119101822000424) and been told this behaviour is by design.

    Can we either change this so that the permissions are updated (preferred approach) or at least put a warning up when publishing the App to say the dataset permissions need…

  17. A too/feature is needed to convert classic workspace to new workspace

    The new workspace has been the default workspace type. However, currently there is no way to convert a classic workspace to new workspace. A tool or feature is needed to do this job. We have many classic workspaces, and we wish to convert them to new work spaces.

  18. Limitation of 1000 datasets or 1000 reports per dataset in a workspace

    Validate if it is possible to change the limitation for workspaces containing a maximum of 1,000 datasets, or 1,000 reports per dataset, in Power BI Premium.

  19. Use all kinds of groups for all types of permissions

    Currently, all the different types of groups - Security Groups (mail enabled and non-mail enabled), Distribution Lists, O365 groups - can be used in different places to provide permissions.

    For example, you can use O365 groups in workspace and app permissions, but can't use them in the share button, for dataset permissions and RLS role membership. Similarly, you can use AD security groups for everything EXCEPT data source users on gateway connections.

    This creates a lot of confusion for admins and workspace owners and requires us to use multiple groups for different things. Ideally, we'd be able to use all…
