  2. PowerBI Format Settings

    There should be a method by which I can set up all kinds of settings e.g. Font size of X-Axis, Font Colours which I would normally use and save this as a design template. This will save a considerable amount of time.

  3. Find all references to a column in Power BI Desktop

    Please give us a way in Power BI Desktop to figure out whether a column / calculated column / measure is in use and ideally a way to find all references. It would be incredibly useful while working on non-trivial report, especially when you need to clean it up or refactor due to data changes in input data.

  4. Possiblity to copy charts from one Power Bi to another Power BI report

    When we use same datasets in different report, sometime there is a need to copy a chart from a report to another report. (This feature is available in Qlikview) The chart can show blank if some fields used are missing as it might not be there or it might be renamed.

  7. Export date columns in the same format as set in the model

    When you do an export data, the fields of type date must maintain the same format as you set in the model. At the moment i need to create a new text column to do that every time.

    Thx,
    giampitz

  10. DISTINCTCOUNT() should be called COUNTDISTINCT()

    DISTINCTCOUNT() should be called COUNTDISTINCT() as it is a type of COUNT(). This affects syntax completion and confuses what the function actually does.

  11. Search Box Visual as a filter

    It would be nice to have a search box visual which would act as a filter depending on the value/text in the box (like a attribute slicer, but without displaying the values available for that column)

  12. Resume load for other tables if one has an error

    It's really annoying to wait for an hour for a bunch of queries to refresh only for an '#N/A' value in an excel table cause the entire load to crash. There should be a prompt that asks if you want to continue refreshing other tables that aren't tied to the one with the error, avoiding the need to wait for an hour to see an error message.

  13. R and SQL highlighting coloring with pseudo intellisense

    Inheriting the NotePad++ or SSMS text highlighting would be a simple and welcome addition. A reach but still necessary aspect of this would be to have intellisense on both the R and SQL code (with a format button as well).

  14. let create graphs with time values

    Actually Power Bi can't make graphs with time units (hours, minutes, seconds or dates) like Excel do because you can't summarize this units, thanks.

  16. Refresh Message - Moving Dotted Circle

    On slow connections to the internet, when a user selects a filter it takes time to refresh the various tiles in a report. But the icon of refresh ie the dotted moving circle which comes on the upper left hand side, is not very noticeable. Plus this is for each tile separately. one does not come to know whether the full report has got refreshed, and one has to keep seeing all the tiles to check if the moving cirlces have disappeared to ensure that the full report has been refreshed. Instead of this, PowerBI should show a bold message…

  17. Report View formatting modifications

    I would like to see as many of the following modifications as possible. They will help make formatting tables and charts much easier.

    - To be able to change/display the column heading name to something else on charts and tables.

    - Add the Text Size option to all formatting options that display text on the report. A lot of the time, the text is too small to read when the chart has a lot of values.

    - The ability to select a default Text size for formatting option. Size 8 is too small.

    - Visualizations and Fields panels scroll bars…

  18. More pre-set maps in Shape Map or a bank of JSON files

    There are 12 pre-set maps on the Shape Map visual.

    Please, either add more pre-sets (World, UK regions, etc..) or create a comprehensive bank of JSON files to choose from.

  20. How to do OR between two columns?

    So currently I can do an OR in filters on one column e.g, If Date is less then "1" OR Greater than "10". But I want to do an OR between two columns.

    If [code1] is 290 OR [code2] is 310 then do this.
