  2. Set custom name of data source

    If you add e.g multiple connection to the same SQL Server it is hard to understand which one goes where if you look in the "Data Srouce Settings" dialog in PBI Desktop.

    Would be nice If you can customize the displayed name when you create the source connection.

  3. Interaction between the dropdowns

    There isn't any feature in Power BI, where the Interaction between 2 dropdowns are facilitated

    For instance i have created a dashboard with two dropdowns & they don't interact with each other, for example if I select a region as Northeast from my first dropdown, the second dropdown should also automatically select as Northeast but that is not the case now, one has to manually again select Northeast from the 2nd dropdown

    I am conscious of the fact that now the question will come, why you need 2 dropdowns of similar nature. Basically they are 2 columns in my data,…

  4. Color by colums in matrix

    When creating a matrix you have the option to color each filed with a different color, but you can not have different colors for different columns.
    This would be specially important when each column is a different year, because it keeps the consistency if you have data represented in both a matrix and a chart.

  7. More inputs based on measures

    Please can more object inputs be linked to measures rather than having to be set manually or automatically. For example....
    the title of a visual,
    the visibility of a visual,
    the min and max of an axis,
    the colour of a line/bar etc.
    the format of a number

    This would give lots of flexibility to present exactly as required and dynamically for different users, or based on different data sets as the data gets filtered.

  8. PowerBI Desktop - Support Custom Publish Report Names

    Currently when using PowerBI Desktop to Publish to PowerBI.com the report takes the name of the Power BI file. Can you please add functionality to still recognize the file name, but also give the owner an option to change the report name before the publish? If a report rename was selected that information needs to be persisted so I don't have to reenter the new name each time when publishing that specific report. If you require more information please contact me so I can assist with the feature. Thanks!

  9. Add Dimension Usage (like in SSAS multidimensional model)

    The Dimension Usage is a great tool in SSAS.
    It would be very helpful to have the ability to "see" the dimension usage for a Power BI model in similar way as it is in OLAP.

  10. Add timer to refresh dialog

    When you refresh, especially all, but helpful to benchmark, add a visible timer on the dialog box that pops up during refresh. For extra credit, create logging functionality that tracks refreshes and their duration - would be helpful for optimization efforts and to know how long I can get up and stretch for when refreshing all

  11. Power Pivot Save View as Picture equivalent

    In the Diagram View of Power Pivot, you can click Save View as Picture to save the diagram view as a picture. This can be especially useful for documentation, because the picture is saved with white background, not the grey one we see in Power Pivot. This results in a much cleaner look in the final document. It would be great to have the same functionality in Power BI.

  14. Improve Undo and Redo Performance

    Any time an Undo or Redo event occurs, it will trigger all visuals to perform a refresh. This is unnecessary and results in a bad UX.

    For example, changing the title of a chart does not trigger a refresh. However, if the user then hits Undo to revert the title change, all visuals are refreshed which causes an unecessary lag.

  17. Date with no hierarchy with SSAS tabular live connection

    At the moment you do not support the bult-in date hierarchy when connecting to SSAS tabular or when using Direct Queries. That is fine as you built this hierarchy yourself in the tabular model (date, month, quarter, year, month + year etc.). However when connecting to your model, Power BI DOES NOT recognize the date hierarchy as a continuous variable (in stead as categorical variable). This means that a) you cannot apply trendlines under "Analytics pane" and b) more importantly when the system interpret the time as a categorical - it will always show a very annoying scroll bar (which…

  20. POWER BI DESKTOP RS

    Create one Solution for Power Bi Desktop that works for Both report server and Power BI Web. or atleast include all features in both. One should not be limited. I know the push is for clud but not all are ready to move to cloud so don't limit the on premise version that is used with report server. It does not help when trying to gain more of an audience in the business.
