  2. More Filetypes for Datasets (.PBIDS), Reports (.PBIR), and Datasets+Reports (.PBIX)

    Separate filetypes for datasets & report definitions. For instance, save a .PBIDS file that has an extract of data, and a .PBIR file that has a report definition. Together they can be packaged in .PBIX as they are now.

  3. Edit Interactions - Opt In and Opting Out

    The Edit Interactions button could allow the options of either applying all default filters and highlights to all visualisations (as it does now) , or removing all interactions. When there are a large number of visualisations on a page it can be very tedious removing them all if you only want to interact with a single visualisation.

  4. DAX Measure Templates

    I'd like the ability to create measure templates. Where I could define a DAX calculation and then specify variables in the calculation that I could replace.

    I pick the template I wont to use, am prompted to replace the variables and then the actual measure gets created in the model.

    It would feel a bit like the funcationality in SQL Management Studio when you can use the "specify values for template parameters" option on a SQL script.

    A typical use case would be when creating time intelligence calculations, the calculations all follow the same pattern, it's just the measure that…

  6. Ability to Lock a Visualization(s) in a dashboard

    It would be nice if we could lock a visualization if we wanted to so that it was not affected by another filter or even slicer. Right now if you have a report and you click a slicer or even an element of another visual, it filters the entire report. But what if you wanted one or a few visualizations to stay at their default value? This should be a simple thing in the top right ... elipses to add in a Lock option in addition to the remove and sort that is there now.

  7. Define maximum elements in TreeMap

    Allow defining the maximum elements to show in a TreeMap, allowing to group all other elements in one square "Others". It would then act as a "Top X" chart and include a "Others" element to visualize the Top X weight in the whole set.

  10. Excel like grid feature and formula enablement in query view grid for data interation and preperation

    There are years of grid enablement features embedded in Excel that are critical in data preparation and analysis severely lacking and limiting in powerbi desktop forcing business users to stay in excel, this includes basics like user defined formula's and libraries sharable and accessible across business users as opposed to hard coded internal to a single file only

  15. scripted view of the data model

    Make the model scriptable would be great. Today in Power Query you have possibility to switch to the advanced view where you have the scripted version of the transformation. Having the scripted version of the data model, where measures and calculated columns for all tables are all together in a single scripted view would be useful and would speed up the data model design process

  17. Colour Picker/theme on visuals in the Power BI Desktop.

    It would be useful to have a colour picker or theme tab to format visual colours. Sometimes when using images, its useful to match the colour of the image to a visual. Currently this means having to find what the hex code for the colour want.

  18. 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.

  20. Remove schema name (or keep it optionally) importing tables or views from SQL Server

    When you import tables or views from SQL Server, the schema name is placed before the table/view name. When you import several tables/views from the same schema, this is really useless. Having the option to keep the schema name only on-demand during the import would be very useful.
