  1. Financial data for financial reports

    A major part of every business' reporting is to report on financial figures. Would be great to have a sample for that

        • Make PowerBI logos available

          For presentations it might be a good idea to have a nice set of PowerBI logos (including SQL, SSAS, SSIS etc.) available. Also handy for documentation!

          • Create a pbix sample that includes DAX functions

            We need a sample pbix file (similar to the AdventureWorks SSAS examples) to act as a template we can follow while creating our own.

            • More videos on the how to stuff

              Most of the intro to Power BI is long documents. Can we get more video's. I want to work like a Gen Yer and just take in short video content.

                  • Adventure Works "OLTP" 2014 Transaction Sample on "Azure SQL"

                    Currently, when you spin-up an Azure SQL DB ... you "can chose to install" the AW "LITE" which is quite limited.

                    • Mobile "Roles Sample" included in the Mobile Apps - where is it?

                      Simple idea ... "our potential customers have found this" and say ... "show me" how this works going "backward to the "reports and dashboard"! We have found the Retail Sample + 7 others, but where exactly is this "very exciting sample" located?

                                  • Make Medicare open source datasets available to create custom reports in Power BI

                                    Open source government healthcare data is readily available, and the application of Power BI to create reports and insights has been demonstrated by Microsoft (see link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7bjAkECHmw).
                                    Has Microsoft considered making the data available (with routine refreshes) as a Power BI dataset for public consumption so that users can create their own custom reports?
