  1. Make it save the Report when you hit the Save or Save as Menu option

    with other products I have developed the expectation that the save button actually saves my project so that when I reopen it it kind of looks like it did when I saved it, however Power BI is lowering my expectations. Seems like this would be a bacic feature.

  2. dropdown server already used

    Hey,

    could be nice to have a dropdown selection of Servers and databases you have already used in the "connect to a database"-view, so you don't have to type in the server parameters over and over again if you want to import a new table.

  3. Use images as background for charts(or any visual)

    We have the ability to use page backgrounds as images however I would like for an ability to do the same for individual charts as well. Such as an image for a table or cards, or any other chart.

  4. Add all modeling tab features to the Relationship view

    In Desktop the Report and Data tabs both have all the options for Modeling; add them to the Relationships tab as well. It's frustrating to have to go into other tabs when defining or redefining data types, summation and other modeling tasks.

  6. report sections getting out of sync with Pages

    I see an issue where the pages can be named and ordered, however they have a back end Report Section which is based on the creation of the page.

    So many reports I have created and started on page 1, but then change it to be page 3, but it is still called Report Section 1 and when opening the report this is the default page instead of Page 1.

  7. Reinstate the ability to format the date values in a date slider

    In previous versions of desktop it was possible to format the date value in a date slider. So we had ours with white text on a dark blue background. In the latest version this ability has been removed for some reason. In an existing pbix if you add a new slicer you can format paste with an existing slider to format the values. In a new pbix file though there is no way to do this. I can't understand why this change has taken place as it makes the desktop version less functional?

  8. BUG: page background files with brackets in the name causing saving issue

    if a file with [ ] in the filename is used as a background image in the page, PowerBI refuses to save the file and claims path invalid.

  9. Reverse Filtering

    Using one slicer, you could make two tables where one was showing the results in the selection from the filter and the other is showing what's not included in the selection.
    To make it even better you could use choose to use this on any slicer- and the default visualisation would have two tables. But you could also filter these tables normally with other slicers at the same time!

  10. page background not fitting or filling

    When trying to fit or fill a background image. Power Bi is neither filling or fitting the image and keeps it in center of the page. Until today, I did not have this issue.

    I tried different image , its giving the same view. Its also resetting the other page which was built earlier with squeezed image.

  12. Start Power BI by typing "powerbi" in start menu

    Please add an alias to the start menu shortcut so that "powerbi" opens your app. Currently only "power bi" starts it, while "powerbi" starts a bing search (not what I want)

  13. Configuration axis x-and y

    In businesses where we not only have dollar or euro units, but other units such as kW; GJ; cum etc. It is nice to be able to configure the x and y axis to suit these requirements.
    Now the axis name on y is value assuming it being financial units most of the time.
    This will give more flexibility in other businesses then the financial sector.

  14. About - Version of Power BI desktop more prominent

    Since the Desktop updates so often it would be really nice to see version info in fewer clicks. Maybe even in title bar?

  15. Show if and where the column/formulas are used on the dash

    This would make easier to determine what data itens are useful on the dashboard (and clean up some data never used).

  19. Power BI Desktop taskbar icon to follow app in multi display setups

    In Windows 10 with a multi display setup, taskbar icons are generally shown on the same display that the application is on and will follow the application if moved to a different display. For some reason this is not the case with Power BI where is always stays on the main taskbar.

  20. AutoSave fixes - Remember locations and filenames

    I was offered to Auto-recover a pbix that was in progress, opened from a file share.  So it had a name.

    But when it's opened, the document shows as "Untitled", and when I use Save As... the location I opened from is not in the recent locations list. The file itself is in the MRU list under the file menu, but I have no quick way to use Save As... to replace the file that was being edited, or even save as a neighbor.
