      • Retain summarization settings no matter what change occurs (bug fix)

        Let's say I have a numeric value for Claim Number. The default summarization is Sum, but should be set to 'Do Not Summarize.' Every time a relationship changes, I need to revisit every single summarization property that was reset from the default. This is reproduced over and over again when a change occurs and gets very tiresome. Will appreciate it if this bug gets resolved.

          • Colloboration Functionality in Workspace Groups

            As we get deeper into infrastructure and project design it has been apparent that having all of the information for a project build is really handy when collaborating within a workspace group.

            What I have found however is that to avoid having multiple repositories for a Power BI project (IE documentation on SharePoint, Datasources and Visuals in Power BI etc), we have been adding tabs purely for documentation purposes and a report with project notes shared and embedded there.

            What I think would be a really cool enhancement would be to have a little extended functionality within Workspace Groups to…

                  • Add Word Cloud to the list of Visualizations

                    Along with the other amazing visualizations already present , it would be of great help in text analytics if Word Cloud is also added.

                      • Integration with "R" language

                        Integration of Power BI with "R"

                        Now a days "R" become very powerful language for data analysis. Greater dis-advantage with "R" is not so powerful in Data Visualization. So Power BI will act as complementary with "R" if we do tight integration between two (R - Machine Learning and Power BI is Visualizing the result). This is how to utilize power of "R" in Power BI Desktop. Thought of following ways

                        • Run "R" script on top of data which we have in Power BI and Store result back into Power BI (Power BI plays role of data integration with…

                          • sql database connection name

                            When you connect to a SQL Database can you please change the application name to be at least Power BI desktop. It would be great if you could change it to be “Power BI Desktop - <PB File name>” This really aids in troubleshooting where the connections come from

                                  I think this is a well known problem. The worse thing is there is no way to reverse back to the last working point.

                                  • Marketing Automation Integration

                                    It would be great to leverage PowerBI to identify top/interesting costumers and then using a connector target them using an external marketing automation tool (mailchimp,marketo,adobe,eloqua,etc...) Actually we have every time to export this data manually into a file and then reimport back this data in the marketing tools.

                                      • Allow 32bit download even if I have Windows 64bit.

                                        Allow 32bit Desktop download even if I have Windows 64bit install. Though I have that, most of the drivers are 32bit. Ideally, in the 64bit Desktop version, just switch to the 32bit driver when a 64bit one is not there!! Stop making users jump through hoops -- hurts user adoption.
