    Hi there.

    I'd like to request you to include an option which can permit the user to undo changes made on the Edit Queries window other than changes that are listed on Applied Steps section.

    Thanks.

  2. Visual indicator of ALL fields with relations in model + highlight ALL on mouseover of table

    In the existing Power BI desktop, when you mouseover a table relation connector line, it highlights the two fields involved in the relation in their respective tables. Very useful.

    Two related and also useful enhancements would be:

    - Provide a static (always present) visual indicator of ALL fields involved in relations in the entire model (maybe slightly different back color or dotted outline)

    - When mousing over a table itself, highlight ALL fields in the table that are involved in relations, as well as all their corresponding fields in related tables (so basically the same as what happens how when…

  3. More filter functionality for dropdown lists

    Provide the facility to be able to start typing a word on a dropdown list and have it filter to just those matches.

    We have a very long list of products and if we need to filter sometimes we have to scroll right down to the bottom. If we could just type in Z for example and jump straight to everything that began with Z that would be very useful.

    Or, as an alternative. If we could pin the most popular selections in a dropdown list to the top so they appear first that would also be useful.

  6. duplicated page position

    Duplicate page throws new page always to last position.

    I'd like to be able to put it next to source page.
    and then. a sort feature for pages would be very very good.
    I am building an automatic report source for a powerpoint. there will be appr 50 pages
    also, one could think of some kind of grouping or folding pages

  7. open dashboard from service

    Once I login with my account in Power BI Desktop, I would like to have access to all my dashboards, open and edit them directly from there.

  10. Power BI Hierarchical Filters

    For an any hierarchical data, there is a possibility of drill down, but that drill down is restricted to one report. It will be great if that drill down works for other reports too.

  13. Drag and drop visual to another page.

    After creating a visual on a page I realised I don't really have room so need to move it to another page. It would be great to be able to drag that to "page 2" and have it move there.
    Currently I seem to have to delete that one and create it again on the next page.

  14. Create table - card interaction, where no card data displays until table record is selected

    When creating a table with many non-graphical data elements a card can be a helpful way to display second level information. However it currently defaults to displaying multiple records. Only when selecting a single record in the table does the card also limit to a single record

    It would be helpful if there was an interaction option to default the card to blank until a single record is selected.

    Also, cards should be able to wrap text.

  15. Groups - More than 10

    Groups - More than 10

    Why can't we have more than 10 (really 9), really 8 with an "Other" group?

    Really need 30 or more.

  16. Merge Power BI Desktop and Power BI Desktop Server

    Would be convenient if switch between PBI Desktop and PBI Desktop Server, could be implemented as 2 "Modes" in 1 application instead of separate applications as is currently the case.

  18. Import tabs

    If the dataset and relations are same in other reports, if we could import the tabs from different pbix that would help us in developing the same report again...

  19. Create a wizard in powerbi desktop to submit a quick measure

    Today we can only submit a new idea for quick measure using the forum.

    It would be nice if we can use power bi desktop to build the quick measure, test it locally an then submit it.

    Together with the ability to submit to both, the public gallery and a corporate gallery, as the idea at (https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/18918829-edit-my-own-quick-measure-templates) already suggested, these features will turn the quick measures even more important for powerbi users.

  20. filter context group visual

    IT would be great if we were able to group visuals within a container and apply a filter context to the group.

    When building dashboard it is often necessary to combine visuals to get the overall 'look' you want to achieve but it's a bit finicky as they move separately and it requires the filter to be applied to each element.
