  1. Single running page for reports rather than broken up pages

    Don't set a limit on page length so the reports can be more diverse and scrollable to elimate the necessity of scrolling through tabs and redoing filtering

  3. Load measure definitions from file

    Load measure definitions from file

    When you have many measures (equally structured) it is cumbersome to create (/paste) them one by one in the UI. Preparing a series of measures in, say, a text editor and pasting/loading them at once would be much more efficient

  4. This would be a game changer for PowerBi - I think the font size should be adjustable on the x and y axis's for all the charts available.

    I think the font size should be adjustable on the x and y axis's for all the charts available. The charts I've generated i'm able to see adjust the font size for the values but not for the axis values and titles for all the visualizations which makes the entire visual seem distorted.

  5. Hierarchical Axis Concatenation option should apply to Y-Axis as well

    The recently introduced Hierarchical Axis option does not appear to function on the Y Axis for Bar Charts. It should be able to do the same there as well. Example is Year-Month. This works fine on the X-Axis of clustered column chart, but not (as far as I can see) on the clustered bar chart.

  7. Date visualization

    When we input a date with just a month (i.e August, July, etc.. it would be nice to be able to put just the month. For now it forces me to put a full date. otherwise it just sorts it alphabetically... not useful :)

    Thanks !

  8. Support for column series in stacked column chart

    The combo chart supports a column series value, but the stacked column chart does not. I want to be able to show one stacked column per X axis value and have each column grouped by the column series value/category.

  9. Fat bars in chart when multible measures

    Bar charts looks nice when use one value and legend to it (for example Actual & Product Category).

    When you use many measures in 'Value' -field, bars goes from fat to flat like needles. For example if you need visualization to separate measures like Actual, Budget, Actual LY, Forecast, ... without legend bars are way too flat.

    Funnel is somekind workaround, but fat bars would be much better solution.

  10. Allow use of query to set Parameter Current Value

    Under Manage Parameter, when i use Suggested Values as Query, I would like to set the Current Value to the first item in the query result as the default value when i first open the report.

    Example: if my query result is a list of dates, i would like to set the latest date as default

  11. Multiple Instances of Power BI Universal App Running

    Please create a way for more than one instance of the Power BI Universal 10 App to run. I'd like to have multiple dashboards set-up to be running on the Universal Win 10 Application. No just one dashboard at a time, we are creating a 8 pane dashboard HUB for a large client and would need to have multiple windows open and running to do this.

  13. Pie chart unable to render color of lower values

    When a value is drastically lower than the others in comparison (when the "pieslice" is very small), Power BI is not able to render the set color of that value. Instead it´s presented in white or colorless, which makes it look like a crack in the chart.

  14. Cannot re-publish my report after updating on Power Bi Desktop

    I created a report on Power BI desktop and then Successfully published it on the Power bi Service and have the scheduled refresh configured on the data set and also have the dashboard shared with others.
    Now I have updated a few things on the Report on my Power BI Desktop and every time i try to publish, i get an error "This report was already published to the selected destination"
    I can change the name and publish or delete the dataset and report from Power Bi but that means I have to recreate the schedule refresh and also share…

  15. GRAPHIC INTERACTION.

    When you select some a value (for instance Product Category) in one graphic, you can choose what you want the rest of the ítems of the report, that it's ok; but if you select other value in other graphic (for instance Customer) the first selection dissapear; I think that sometimes is ok but other times, about all if you have a third or fourth graphic it is not good.
    I think it would be great that existed a tick to permit your first selection was conserved, and the you could continue exploring your data with this selection.

  17. Recreate Excel Timeline Slicer

    We started with a custom viz that was too large and didn't look very professional to a timeline slicer that is more compact but took away the ability to easily slicer on Year, Quarter, Month. Instead of requesting to improve, just bluntly requesting to replicate the Excel timeline slicer in Power BI. It looks nicer, the brush is easier to use and we can filter by Year, Quarter and Month easier.

  18. grid

    I'd like to have the option to add vertical grid lines in the line chart. This would greatly improve the readability for some types of data.

  20. Query Dependency export view to Visio

    The new Query Dependency view is great but would be amazing if we could export to Visio doc to assist in documenting the ETL Process
