  2. Open up the classes

    The classes of the application can be opened up to the developers so that they can make changes and manipulate them according to their liking.

  3. Select All in preview Matrix/Table visual

    Would be nice to have a "Select All" option in the Matrix and Table Preview visual. It's useful when you are using javascript/angular, to extract the data with the "Dataselected" event.

    Thank you

  4. Default filter "basic" rather than "advanced"

    We find we use the "basic" filtering option far more than the "advanced" filter option in Desktop. It would be great if we could customize to have the default be "basic," instead of having to change on every visual.

    As new updates are released, I find myself going back and updating dozens of Power BI Desktop files (like when the new dropdown filters became available or when a new custom visual is available). It would save us a HUGE amount of time if we could copy & paste visuals between desktop files.

  6. Change the Frame Color of the Query Editor so it can be distinguished in ALT-TAB Preview

    When working with multiple PBIX files, say to compare why a Query is working in one Model but not a new version, and having both Desktops and Query Editors for both files open, you cannot easily discern which is the Desktop and the Query Editor using ALT-TAB which offers a small preview of the Application Window. Changing the Frame Color of the Query Editor, or other significant distinguishing visual will help keyboard control switching between windows. After all, PBI is VISUAL.

  7. Add or Change the name of a Power BI Ideas category specific to the UI/UX

    If Desktop is the place for UI/UX improvements, call that out in the Category title. Change it from Desktop to "Desktop-UI/UX"

  8. Make it easier to move pages in Power BI desktop

    Duplicating a page is easy, but it's often inconvenient that the duplicated page is inserted as the last page. It's difficult to move the page to where you want to place it,especially of your Power BI file contains many pages. Duplicated pages should appear right next to the original page, and not at the end. Alternatively, you should be able to right click a page and give it a new index number directly instead of beinf forced to drag-and-drop the new page to the desired position.

  9. Version of PowerBI Desktop

    Its simple but in the powerbi web site, where you download Power BI Desktop, should indicate the version you are about to download, and in power bi desktop should also indicate the version. We, the begginers sometimes are lost in that matter.

  11. Show DAX Option in any chart

    In any chart contextual menu, have a "Show DAX" option that show all of the DAX queries executed behind the scene for that chart. This is most important in some situation when there are many filters set. For SSAS live-connected situations, I actually use the SQL Server Profiler to get it. I consider this a developer feature that should be activated in PBI Desktop Options menu when you need.

  12. When using the modeling ribbon, do not automatically close ribbon after one change

    In order to format a measure, I go to the Modeling ribbon in Power BI Desktop. I make a change, such as choosing "Currency General," and the ribbon collapses. But I want to make another change - no decimals. I have to click on the Modeling ribbon again to make the change. Gets old quick when creating many formatted measures. Seems like it would be simple to fix. Thank you.

  13. Possible to define a polarity (1 or -1) em conditional formatting to change color red to green or the opposite

    Possible to define a polarity (1 or -1) em conditional formatting to change color red to green or the opposite.
    Ex. the base field could be multiplied to 1 ou -1 and then when can control the color range from red=>green or green=>red, depending of the nature of the value in analises.

  14. Option to "Edit Data in Excel"

    Data should be editable by more than just columns and a really basic find/replace system in Desktop.

  15. expand power query nested formula to steps

    In the process of writing a solution, queries with many steps are often obtained. It would be very convenient to get a tool that allows you to merge selected linked steps into one by obtaining an embedded formula.
    On the other hand, when you need to debug a code that uses nested formulas, it takes a long time to convert such formulas into separate steps. To do this, it would be very useful to use the tool for reverse decomposing embedded formulas into steps.

  16. Play View in Power BI Desktop

    Sometimes I share report I made to other people just in Power BI desktop by copying pbix file. but they browse report with always editable view. I prefer to add a Play View to Power BI Desktop just like Powerpoint.

  17. Allow Filtering In Data View

    It would be very helpful to be able to filter the data view like we can in a Power Pivot data model.

  20. En Gauge poder subdividir no solo por maximos y minimos sino por mas para lograr obtener un indicador con visualizaciones de avance parcial

    Cuando se pone una gráfica GAUGE donde se tiene que poner la sumatoria del valor el cual debe variar entre un valor mínimo y otro máximo para visualizarse, seria interesante que se pudieran poner valores intermedios dentro de rango para poder ver la evolución en el caso anual. Caso practico tengo un indicador de objetivo anual y veo su evolución pero no puedo llevar un control si para la etapa en la cual me encuentro esta bien o esta mal si se pudieran agregar valores intermedios seria genial
