  1. 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?

  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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Provide dataflows for the Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics app

    The Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics app provides a dataset that can be shared. This means we can consume it, but not manipulate the data. If the dataset were provided as a dataflow we could more effectively create reports that make it easier to administer the Power BI Cloud Service utilization.

    One reason for this is the current app only uses UTC time forcing a mental calculation to see when the high utilization times actually occur.

    Second being able to manipulate the data - some tables can be combined to faciliate generating a refresh schedule which shows when datasets and…

  15. Email Notification to App Owner when access requested

    It would be most helpful if a notification is sent to the application owner when somebody from your organisation requests access to the app as currently you have to go into each application and see if you have any pending requests

  16. 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.

  17. Allow Distribution lists to be used in a dashboard alert configuration

    Right now, it seems that a single person/email address can be entered as the person to be alerted if a specific dashboard alert threshold is reached. With multiple admins, we want to communicate these alerts to all of them, not just the person who created the alert. So we can create 1 Alert on a dashboard and have it notify multiple people.

  18. 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…

  19. O365 Power BI Audit Data for Operation AnalyzedByExternalApplication should include Dataset ID

    The O365 Power BI Audit Data for the Operation AnalyzedByExternalApplication does not respond with any ID that can be mapped. We would like to see the dataset ID in the response so we can map the operation back to a dataset

  20. Provide the ability to dashboard the premium metrics report and configure alerts

    Allow the PBI Admins the ability to create dashboards from the Premium Capacity Metrics report pages and the card visuals needed to configure alerts on the dashboard for CPU, memory, query duration, wait times, etc. This way the Admins can be more proactive with premium capacity management verses waiting for the users to complain of ill performance.
