  1. clear filter option on title for slicers

    your new September release has added nice title capability on slicer but does not have the clear filter option. I dont want to use both the header and title so they need to have same font capabilities and clear filter option

  3. Calendar Visualization

    The 3rd party Caleandar Visualization is very powerfull and I feel worth of being released officialy by Mirosoft or build by one of your staff as at the moment it is broken after your latest release, this type of visualization can display a lot of data in a small package and go down well with consumers

  4. Tool tip in field list

    Right now in PowerView if I hover over a field name (e.g. Customer) I get whatever description is given to that column in SSDT. Right now in PowerBI and PowerBI desktop, that tool tip/hover functionality doesn't exist.

    Settings are currently stored in C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop\User.zip\UserInterface\Settings.xml which makes it difficult to find or programmaticly change. Please move to the registry.

  9. working in parallel

    Add the possibility of working in parallel with another workmate.

    Maybe the solution could be importing and existing page in a report from other Power BI Desktop file.

  10. Localized delimiters to export datas

    Since 2016 february, it's possible to export datas from PBI desktop but the delimiter is a coma which is not the localised delimiter in France. So openning the files is quite a bothering process. Please use localized delimiters.

  11. Allow sharing with others outside work domain

    I work as a consultant for others that are outside my business domain, and I'd like to be able to share my Power BI reports with different individuals. It appears that they can only be included if they have an account on my business domain.

  12. second line for power bi sheets & quick find/highlight by sheet name

    When having many sheets in one pbix file, it's hard to find the relevant by scrolling left and right. Would be nice to have the ability to organize the sheets in a multi row in such way that all the sheets fits in one screen. Also the ability to find/highlight sheet by name for quick navigation

  13. Update Available upgrade automatic opition

    When an upgrade is available an end user has to find the link on the internet to upgrade. The software should give us options on how to update and happen from the software itself.

  15. Change Power BI Desktop configuration settings storage location

    At present Power BI Desktop Client settings are stored in the following location "C:\Users\s082aq\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop\User.zip"

    It's kind of annoying that the settings are stored in a ZIP file, Please store the files outside a ZIP file so they can be better managed by personalization solutions such as UE-V

  16. Label and Description should support hierarchies

    When I am adding a lable or description to a measure on a hierarchical graph, my hierarchies are no longer working. The flat labels and descriptions spoiling my drill downs. But labels and descriptions are very essential for my graph. I am putting this as an idea but it may be a bug also. How to display discriptio​n for a hierarchy from a fixed column? in fourms explains this in detail

  17. Legend to represent Color Saturation on the bubble chart

    For the bubble chart, when we use Color Saturation dimension, there is no option of a legend to tell what light, medium, dark colors mean. Please provide an option to add legend for color saturation in the bubble chart properties.

  20. Manage Publishing Rights In the Desktop Application

    Since PowerBI is not yet HIPAA compliant, we are using the Desktop App to explore data without publishing it to the Power BI service. As we distribute the .pbix files, we'd really appreciate a way to disable ALL publishing of the report data on a per-user or group level.
