  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

        • 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.

          • 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!

            • 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?

                  • 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.

                        • Operations Director sample

                          It would be great if you would create Operations Director sample for Power BI as you did for the apps

                              Seria interesante revisar un ejemplo de BI con datos sobre transito autmovilistico , privado o publico, en una ciudad.

                                Dax is powerful and yet the power often comes with complexity. For the less experienced like me it would be great to have the following function.
                                After creating a table visual it would be great to be able to turn the table into an actual DAX expression to use that table as a start for new calculations.
                                Imagine a table visual is created, select copy to new table.
                                PowerBI creates the DAX syntax and table.

                                • 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?
