  1. Add Multi-Level Hirarchy in Slicer Based on a Parameter

    Let say I have 3 columns Category, Level and ParentCategory.
    ParentCategory shows what is the parent of the category at certain level specified in Level Colum so power bi slicer should be able to make a hierarchical slicer based on level and should be sortable to up-down or down-up based on level.
    we have one custom visual called Hierarchy Slicer but that doesn't slice base on any field like Level

  2. SCCM support for Power BI Desktop deployments

    A few months ago Power BI Desktop no longer deploys via SCCM reliably resulting in a corrupt installation in many cases.

    We have raised an incident and we are told that SCCM deployments is not supported.

    Power BI is supposed to be an enterprise grade tool and it is great that we get monthly updates however it is not great that we have to manually arrange installation for every single one of our 100 strong analysis team who requires to get these updates which means that it is not practical for us to deploy the new updates every month.

    My…

  3. Possibility to enter data manually in a slicer

    For example, we have a slicer with a column having the itens of one dimension (let say: category) and we have a 2nd column formatted as percentage or other format but with empty data in filed to input direct in each row one percentage bu the end user (witch in this case can be diferent as category code changes).
    Target: make simulations by changing atual data for each item in wathever dimension we want, to predict future scenarios.
    Thanks.

  5. Relative WeekNr or Relative MonthNr missing

    Havind a date relative is great but as this is a date the Year is taken into account. Could we have a relative format on Week Nr and Month Nr? This will allow us to select automatically the same WeekNr or MonthNr no matter is the year. It will allows us to make better comparison through years

  6. Correct ISO country codes

    In ArcGIS map, ISO-3 country codes didn't show the right location of some countries, for example, Belarus (BLR) situated somewhere in Africa.

  7. ENABLE 'Quick Design' of a Reference File for Report/Dashboard!

    In relationship view, add a section in 'Resources' called 'Reference File Template' [or similar], designer clicks button -> pBI Desktop pulls all the headers and tables [data sources] together into an 'Outline' template in Excel, with the hierarchy relationship [each table from the same server, database in their own groups], pathway for each table [server, db, table/view/ etc.] already recorded, the synonyms already created, and added columns for descriptions of each header that the designer can edit. The completed file would be able to be attached to the reports/dashboards when uploaded, so end users have insight into what the data…

  10. Multiple column series in one chart (switchable)

    The Column Series on a stack column chart is super helpful for a number of visualizations. So much so that I often find myself cloning the chart into several smaller ones, just to present the users with several parameters in the Column Series.

    Eg., one chart is colored by Paid/Unpaid orders, another shows Products and yet another shows Domains like .com, .net etc.

    What if I could add _all_ these dimensions as Column Series and have a simple radio button group to switch between those in one single chart?

  12. Drill Through to a Page that has a separate Data Source

    I would like to be able to view summary data on one page then drill through to a page that uses a different data source. For example, data source 1 has a Manufacture information (Manufacture Name Address, Location, etc) and is displayed on one page. Data Source 2 had the Manufacturers order details and is displayed on a second page. Both data sources have Manufacture Name in them. I would like to be able to right-click on a Manufacture Name on the first page and drill though to the second page and displays that Manufacturers order detail that is from…

  14. page multiplier

    Page multiplier with powerpoint export.

    I need to creat 57 pages where
    - 3 different values (reach, minutes per listener commercial share)
    are multiplied by
    - 19 different time periods
    Basically one could add those parameters as filters to one an same page and the press button "multiply pages"
    with option "to powerpoint only"
    and then one could share that powerpoint in Sharepoint and that would update automatically.

  16. Dropdown box of all the pages for easier navigation (like in Excel)

    implement the poibility of a Dropdown box with of all the pages in the PwerBi for easier navigation (like in Excel).

    It is somewhat cumbersome the navigation between the pages when there are many.

  17. Tables and Matrix sizing

    Enable the users to resize the Table or Matrix easily. Just like in any basic tool, increasing and decreasing the size of Table or a Matrix should affect the size of the columns and rows as well.

  19. Y/Y Change for Ribbon Chart

    It would be great if there were an option to look at y/y changes for the ribbon chart. In retail for example would be best to be able to compare Q4 to Q4 to see how holiday sales trended across one category or another. September update was great!

  20. Get Apps from Power BI Windows Store App

    From within the Microsoft Power BI (not Power BI Desktop) app downloaded from the Windows 10 Store, solely used to consume reports and dashboards, I'm struggling to see a way to 'Get Apps'.

    This requires the user to log in to the service through a browser, and 'get apps' that way. It would make for a cleaner overall experience, if 'get apps' could be done within the Windows 10 Store app itself.

    Raised only because some of our end users have expressed frustration having to navigate to two places, and the app is a cleaner and more immersive browsing experience.
