  1. Keyboard navigation for "Publish to Power BI" dialog when publishing from desktop

    When publishing from Desktop, did you know you can't navigate the "Select a Destination" menu without using the mouse? You can 'tab' between the Select and Cancel options, but not the workspace list.
    Keyboard navigation would provide accessibility consistent with other software, and as a bonus would benefit those of us whose mouse battery literally just died and want to finish off the publish step before we go hunting for a fresh battery. :-)

  2. card view doesnt support URL column types

    the card view visualization doesnt support the URL type columns correctly.

    Slicer includes values 'unknown' member

    SSAS live connection Slicer includes values 'unknown' member even thought the "unknown" member set to "hidden" at dimention level

  5. Power BI Service Connector should support live connections

    The new (April 2017) preview Power BI Service connector to create reports in Power BI Desktop on datasets in the service should also support dataset created as a live connection to eg. SSAS cubes.

    Lets face it the PBI Desktop is just better for developing reports (can add images and place object behind another object etc.), but when you use Desktop to develop the report with a live connection it will create a new dataset in the service every time we deploy a new report, so we end up with hundreds of datasets pointing to the same source.

    Please fix…

  9. Keyboard Enable the entire Power BI UI/UX - too much clicking around

    This would fall under your UI/UX Category which is not specifically called out. For seasoned users of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) which is a mature and refined Tool, every single possible IDE Function and Object manipulation is achievable by memorizing Keyboard Sequences, allowing touch-type oriented Users to optimize development without slowing down by constantly reaching for the Mouse, unlike Power BI which requires constant clicking around the UI and creates an annoying experience for developers transitioning to it, and used to the discrete control in most other MS tools, like Visual Studio.

    For example, even your Filters Tree of…

  12. Resize Report Objects with keyboard

    It would be lovely to have the ability to resize report objects via keyboard. I know other tools, such as MicroStrategy, enable you to hold down control and select a direction arrow to increase the size of that object by 1px for every time the arrow keys are pressed.

  13. conditional fomatting

    Conditional Formatting needs to format the entire row or multiple columns.

  14. Power BI reader

    It’s really impressive how quickly power BI is improving and enhancing the product in every release.

    Feature like sharing the power BI file in read only mode where user can only visualize, interact and cannot modify any chart, query or data in the dashboard. Just like exporting power BI template if user can export the .pbix file in read only mode that will be a good security feature for Power BI desktop.

  15. page size consistency

    Visuals shift around on the page depending on how the page size is set in Power BI Desktop (Fit to page vs Fit to Width vs Actual Size). Please sort this as it is imperative that they not move between views.

  16. Conditional Formatting within Matrix/Table Visuals

  17. The new release of the Matrix Preview doesn't seem to let you have multiple variables in Rows.

    In the original Matrix you could add multiple variables to the Rows area and the table would build out horizontally. The new Preview treats these as drill down categories, only displaying one variable at a time.

  18. Allow to combine Next and Previous on the same Relative Date Slicer

    With the latest May update, we can now select Next x days to show or Previous x days to show, but we can´t create a combined interval with these two.
    It would be great if we could combine Previous and Next to create an interval to show for example the last 2 days of data and the 7 next days.

  19. Formula Hints not visible in 4k Screens

    The tool tips for formula bar while creating measures appear in very small font in a 4K resolution screen.
    I am not able to read anything there. Can this be addressed. In Excel there no such issue..

  20. Be able to Select a Field and Highlight all Associated / Impacted Fields

    I think it would be really interesting and valuable to have the ability to select a specific field (dimension or measure) and have all "associated" fields highlighted, which would help to show which other fields may be impacted by a change on one field.

    Associated fields might be defined as having other fields within it's own calculation, where a change in one impacts a change in another.

    Even better might be able to have a diagram of all "interconnected" fields, those fields that are used "within" one another in functions and calculations.
