  1. UI Consistency - Show/Hide Pages

    Can we add the pages to the Selection Pane so that the user can select pages and objects for show/hide in one place?

  2. Bookmarks selection based on measure value.

    Bookmarks are AWESOME but lacking this essential capability:
    I cannot show specific bookmark based on a value of a measure.
    For instance: if no Product is selected then show bookmark with hidden charts and tables since they only make sense if a specific product is selected. Thanks

  3. Notification after updates have been installed

    When Power BI Desktop has been updated by the Windows Store there is no indication that you have the most up-to-date version. It would be great to see a pop-up the first time you open Power BI Desktop after the update happens so that you know you have new features.

  4. Relathionships: Possibility to Align and Change relathionship lines color

    Dears:

    I would like to suggest to have the possibility to align Tables, on Relathionship workspace as you can do on Report view.

    It would be great to be able to change the colors of relathionships connections, to allow new user to easily understand how the connections are made.
    on big models, this could be an asset.

    Thank you for your time!

  5. Better default visualisations when measures are added to the canvas

    As a user, I regularly add a measure which outputs text to the canvas as the first step of creating a visualisation. When I do this, Power BI Desktop adds a blank visualisation with the measure. It's actually a column chart but since there is only one data field added it's still a large white box with a title.

    It would be a better user experience if the default was a Card visualisation. By default I would see the value of the unfiltered measure. I could argue that even if the measure outputs a numeric value, the card is still…

  6. GPO for Auto Recovery location

    User PowerBi Desktop Auto Recovery location is stored in the user profile, C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop\User.zip

    In the settings.xml (Type="AutoRecoveryDirectory"...)

    All the settings should be managed via GPO to allow central management and it should support the use of variable in the registry for the recovery location.

  9. Change Mouse over text on Bookmarks

    When we create a bookmark to different page. currently, It shows "Click here to follow the link". I'm thinking if it is possible to change that text that would be helpful. So that we can change something like "Go to HomePage"

  11. page information with optional icon (built in legend/help for each page)

    My Power BI clients always need extra textual information regarding each and every sheet in the report.
    currently I need to create an external excel file holding that information and create an artificial legend for each sheet in the report.
    It would be great if this feature would be built-in the desktop (and service), in such a way that we would have a small question mark icon and when the end user click it , he would get the additional information that was added by the creator of the report.

  12. Convert Measure/Calculated Field to Calculated Field/Measure tool

    It would be really helpful to have this feature. I inherited a report that need to have all of the data sources replaced and all if the measure fields came across as calculated so I had to recreate dozens of calculated fields as measures and fix all of their references. Other products offer this feature.

  14. Make it usable.

    First thing, being unemployed and looking to build up my skills it seems with on work e-mail... I'm dead in the water from the start without being able to try.

    Also seem even if i were able to past that problem, the fonts in the Power BI Desktop is way too small to read, looking around there appears not option to increase the font sizes for stuff. How is this accessible for people with poor eye sight, not really 508 accessibility compliant?

  15. Please Wishing to expand the function regarding the Japanese zip code search along with Power BI Bing MAP.

    I am currently dissatisfied with the count displayed of Japanese zip codes despite the present report visualizing the information along with Power BI's Bing MAP. So, I hope the zip code search to be performed properly by its feature.

  16. AI for PQ query analysis and improving

    AI for assessing the quality of the query and suggestions for its optimization before executing the query on a full set of data.
    Power Query is positioned as a tool that is available to non-professionals. However, this tool in the hands of not qualitatively prepared users can lead to major business mistakes.

    During the development of the request, we make mistakes and inaccuracies, due to which:
    - Unused requests can be superfluous;
    - Steps can be superfluous (sorting, type conversion, adding steps that are not used in the future, etc.);
    - Separate data may be superfluous and stored throughout the…

  17. Difficult to access slicer drop down options

    It is difficult to access slicer drop down options. In particular, changing a date slicer from "between" to the "before" drop down option involves this for me:
    * Turn the header on in the formatting section
    * Resize the height of the slicer so the dropdown appears
    * Change the option
    * Revert the height and header back to my original settings

    The option should not be so deeply hidden for those who made the same customizations as me.

  19. Group Development settings so they can be switched between Develpment & Report Viewing settings.

    It would be nice to flip several settings based on when I'm Developing a report vs when I'm ready to publish the report. Development settings might have Edit Interactions on, Lock Objects On, Show Grid On, etc. And a Publish version where all of those are turned off. So a single place to flip all those.
