  1. group level filter & multiple assignment of visual level filter

    Being able to create a group of filters, like slicer's groups, so you don't need to insert for each visual all the filters you want. Interesting when we are talking 4+ filters.

    Being able to, when multiple visuals are selected, insert the visual level filters, affecting all the selected visuals.

        • Relocated the header sorting function in table & matrix visual to the right-click context menu

          I've found it frustrating when I've clicked on a row/column heading in a matrix/table visual (whether by accident or to bring it into context) - and it ends up sorting the visual by that column. I think many users would still be more used to the concept of clicking and selecting a cell such as in Excel, which does not function quite the same in various Power Bi contexts. I would suggest this frustration could be removed by simply adding sort asc/desc options to the right-click context menu that already exists when clicking on a row/column header. Left click would…

          • register with windows

            I'd like to be able to open csv files with PBI Desktop and have it understand that I want to create a pbix file using the csv file as a data source.

            Bonus points if this works from a folder of csv files.

            Gold star if this works from Powershell on a folder of csv files.

              • Advanced view to see filters at once

                I'd like to have a advanced view to see all the visual level and page level filters in one table (plus the data source where the filtering column is coming from). At the moment hovering is time consuming and errors happen a lot.

                • File Options Button on Home Ribbon

                  With all the new options for a specific Power BI file. I would like a button on the Home ribbon that is a quick access to the Current file options.

                  Today you can set data load, regional settings, privacy, auto recovery, query reduction and report settings. but in order to access these options you have to click File -> Options and Settings -> Options... This loads the Options window, Then you have to click on each section to change the properties.

                  Instead I would like a button on the home ribbon, that has Options, Then all options of the current…

                  • resizing a visualization should not cause selection of visualization to be lost

                    Whenever I resize a visualization and my mouse is traveling away from the visualization (increasing size), the selection of the visualization is lost. I have to re-click on the visualization to reselect it before proceeding. This does not occur ever when I am resizing "inward"towards the visualization (decreasing size). This impedes rapid development, since often after resizing, I am quickly making field selections and discover a new unwanted visualization is present on the canvas. A workaround is to keep mouse pointer very close to where resize operation ends in which case the visualization does stay selected. Just not intuitive and…

                    • Paste Image into Report using ctrl + C and then ctrl + v

                      I would like the ability to have an image in my clipboard from the snip it tool or using windows + shift + S (one note screen capture) and then click on my report page and paste the image. Paste image would be the same as the ctrl + V command.

                      I am trying to quickly add a number of screen shots or images into my report. It is slow to have to click the image button every time, because the image has to be saved to the computer as a file. In Power Point I can screen shot something…

                        • colour

                          Make it possible to fetch colors from dataset. Look to Reporting Services and RS's Expressions. In RS we can set colors from a dataset. Very flexible.

                            Please consider providing an option so Query Dependencies view is always opened maximised and zoomed to extents. This would be two clicks saved each time it is opened if it is a big diagram.

                            • Dropbox filter- timeout to collapse the filter box, and colapse if cursor moves out of the box

                              Filter drop boxes currently require an extra click to close. Users, especially new ones, struggle figuring out where to click to close the filter list dropdown. Three ides to fix this:
                              1. auto timeout box closing after XX number of seconds, thinking of mobile here
                              2. close box when mouse moves out of box on desktop
                              3. turn the original box that shows the fist value under the expanded list into a "close" button for the filter, this would point the user to where to click to close :)
