  2. Better drawing tools

    In order to create visually appealing reports/dashboards in Power BI, it is basically a no-go from within PBI Desktop. There simply are not enough feature-rich tools to accomplish this. Instead, we find ourselves having to create background images in another tool, add them as a background and then try to make them fit well in the scheme.

    Please update Power BI Desktop with better drawing tools.

  4. Better Collaboration between PowerBI Desktop reporting analysts

    Currently we are working with a couple of team members in preparing reports with PowerBI desktop for leadership. As part of collaboration with these reports, we find ourselves having to spend time just to integrate these reports manually into one of our desktops. There should be a better way to collaborate in building a common report within you team.

  5. Specific decimal points on chart axis

    Suppose I want to start x or y axis of a chart with zero and with every subsequent point,the value constantly increases with 0.5. In power BI, its not possible to be that specific with plotting. We can decide the start and the end point of the chart and also the number of decimal points but that doesn't really help in this case. Right now I can either start with zero but then I cannot have the difference of 0.5 or if I put 0.5 as start point, then zero wont be a part of that axis.

  6. Cursor resets on alt tab

    When you alt-tab from PowerBI in the middle of the entering formula and alt-tab back, you have to click on the input field to continue typing.

  7. Able to plan frequency for Power BI dekstop updates

    Power BI gets updates frequently. I don't really need to get an update that often, but I only have the option to turn it off completely. It would then only trigger me 30 days in advance if a version would stop working.
    I would like to be able to control it more. To have the option to offer me the available updates every week, month or other custom period.

  8. Enable 'See Records' for Analysis Services live connection (Basic users)

    We desperately need the 'See Records' drill feature to be enabled when using a live connection to SSAS so our users can see the underlying records/data.

  9. Group Activities in powerquery activity ribbon

    in the power query stage we may use several transaction to preform a specific task.
    for example : in order to create a new field that is built from two part of other columns we need to use split and the create a costume column for the new column.

    if we can group them into tasks it could have made the ribbon much clearer and easier to understand

  10. Visualisation help 'page' listing all features and settings

    Would like to keep up with all the feature tweaks associated with the visuals (and data connections etc). I know can consume new features through the monthly updates:

    https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-june-feature-summary/#dataBars

    But would like a link from desktop app from each visual to with a helpfile or www location listing all associated features/settings for that visual. (Ie full up to date not just additions)

    I believe this would assist in appropriate visualisation usage and uptake of tool.

  11. Improved feedback during publishing from Power BI Desktop

    Currently, during publishing the dialog window gives no real information about the publishing progress.

    It would be useful to see how much longer the publish process will take and how much progress has been achieved in the elapsed time.

  12. Table/matrix filter - click on URL should not filter data

    You have just added new table and matrix visuals which include filtering. Great work!
    If I add an URL to the table and I want to click on that URL, all the data gets filtered by that row. It would be great if filtering would not happen if you click on URL in the table/matrix.

  13. Power BI no se puede conectar con mysql

    Al momento de intentar realizar una conexion a Mysql sale el siguiente Mensaje:

    Detalles: "Se produjo un error al leer datos desde el proveedor: 'No se pudo realizar una llamada a SSPI; consulte la excepción interna.'"

    la cadena de conexión ya la probé en MySQL workbench

  14. Possibility to put a "Total Column" at "Chart" as exist at "Table" and "Matrix"

    Like at "Table" and "Matrix" visualizations, is it possible to have the same idea at "Charts"?
    Because when I put information month by month at "Table" or "Matrix", automatically it give me a total of all months, so I would to know if is possible to do the same for "Charts" and have a format to the person choice if would like or not.

  15. 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. :-)

  16. card view doesnt support URL column types

    the card view visualization doesnt support the URL type columns correctly.
    there is no option to display a small icon like the table can do it.
