  1. Query Dependency export view to Visio

    The new Query Dependency view is great but would be amazing if we could export to Visio doc to assist in documenting the ETL Process

  2. Prevent the user from unchecking all items in the filter control, like make an option as selected by default

    I don't want to allow the user to uncheck all items in the filter control, I need to set an option as selected by default so how can we force the user to uncheck the option if the view will not be fine for multiple selected items.

  6. Power BI desktop - sign in with personal MS account issue

    I'm having trouble signing in using a personal MS account, where the account name/email is also associated with a corporate MS account.

    I have an MS account set up that uses my work email address, and I have an MSDN subscription that is associated with that account. That subscription gives me access to Azure, where I have data (in Data Lake) that I want to query.
    Recently, my company started using Office 365 and my email address is now also associated with an organisation style MS account.
    In Power BI Desktop I want to sign in using my personal MS…

  7. Allow Preview Features to be enabled programmatically (registry, etc.)

    Please allow us to enable preview features without going through the UI.

    I work in an environment that leverages VDI extensively. We’ve added Power BI Desktop to the image, but now would like to know if it is possible to enable preview features (currently Shape Map and Esri control) via any programmatic route other than doing it manually through the UI.

    Since the VDI image gets reset each time the user logs in/out, the current workflow is that in every session they must enable the preview feature, close Power BI Desktop, and re-launch it. My hope is that we could…

  8. KPI Visual trend line should have a scale so you can understand how much the KPI is changed

    The current KPI Visual makes it impossible to tell what previous values are on the trend line. All we can tell is if it is higher or lower than the current, but spikes look so severe because we no control over the scale.

  10. Enable graphs on Power BI Desktop to be accessed through touch screens

    Enable graphs on Power BI Desktop to be accessed through touch screens. Currently, we can touch the graphs using 'touch screen' only on the web based link. The touch doesn't work on Power BI Desktop. Please enable the same.

  12. Exporting data from dashboard visual objects in excel format to avoid local settings problemproblems

    Clicking the threee dots (...) in visual objetcs permits the export in csv format. This can cause many problems as it exports in English (I suppose) format independently on sustem sesttings of the PC. In fact . (decimal) and , (thousands) in Italy are exactly the opposite (, is decimal - . is thousand). Exporting in excel would solve all this issues.

  13. Percentage labels on pie chart when the vales are measures

    Allow users to visualize percentage labels on pie chart when the values are measures, and chooese if the percentage is displayed beside the values or alone. Quick calc is not a solution and some say is not working on the online version at all.

  14. Adding the ability to go directly to a page instead of scrolling through all of them in desktop

    At present I have over 70 pages in one report, some are being used some are not. When I create a new page it is put at the end and I have to manually drag it to where I want it. Something similar to the way excel handles tabs would be marvelous

  15. Flip A Vis

    Since the canvas is of a limited size I would like to have the option to "Flip a Vis" over and look at the back of the visual.

    In my case I would like to have some information on the back of the visual. E.g. an explanation on what it shows and how to use it to analyze.

    I believe this would save a valuable space on the canvas

  16. "Pointer Visual" - Reference visuals from other pages of pbix - so there is no double maintenance

    I have a OPEX Analytics Page where I've put many visuals.
    Now I would like to create another page and there I would like to re-use some of the visuals, I've already created... I don't want to Copy-Paste since if I change anything on the original visual - it would not be reflected in the second one.
    Please create a "pointer-visual" that would reflect the changes made on a referenced one.
    Thanks
    Michael

  18. Allow paste to AttributeSlicer in Power BI Desktop

    In PBI Desktop it is not able to paste a text into the search box. The user must type it directly.
    In PBI service this works ok.

  20. Dynamic shape map selection

    The shape map functionality is useful, but we would like to be able to dynamically select a map based on say a measure/slicer/dropdown.

    We would like to be able show data relating to floorplans across many sites. Currently we would have to duplicate the many times - one for each for each map, for each type of report.

    If we could select which map was displayed based on data, it would save a lot of duplication.
