  5. Bug: Undo deleting Visual

    Deleting visual by accident can happen and by undoing the actions it will reappear. However, when trying to delete the selected text in the Fields search pane it happens that the section jumps back to the visual. At that point by pressing Backspace to delete the selected text you actually delete the visual but this time it is NOT possible to undo this action.
    Power BI team please fix this bug as soon as possible beacause you should always be able to undo the last action.

  6. dock 'show' panes in desktop workspace layout

    We have had a request to be able to dock the 'Show' panes (i.e. Visualizations, Fields, Bookmarks, etc) within the Power Bi Desktop workspace. Currently, by default they are to the right of the workspace, but our user would like to be able to move these to the bottom or left-hand side. This would operate similarly to how Visual Studio and SQL server allow you to organize your workspace. Thanks!

  9. Expand/Collapse folders in Field pane

    When searching for an attribute or a measure in the field list all folders/tables are automatically expanded to show the underlying items that match the search criteria. It would however be a significant UX improvement if the expanded folders where collapseable one by one in the field list.

  12. Relocated the header sorting function in table & matrix visual to the right-click context menu

    I've found it frustrating when I've clicked on a row/column heading in a matrix/table visual (whether by accident or to bring it into context) - and it ends up sorting the visual by that column. I think many users would still be more used to the concept of clicking and selecting a cell such as in Excel, which does not function quite the same in various Power Bi contexts. I would suggest this frustration could be removed by simply adding sort asc/desc options to the right-click context menu that already exists when clicking on a row/column header. Left click would…

  15. Advanced view to see filters at once

    I'd like to have a advanced view to see all the visual level and page level filters in one table (plus the data source where the filtering column is coming from). At the moment hovering is time consuming and errors happen a lot.

  16. File Options Button on Home Ribbon

    With all the new options for a specific Power BI file. I would like a button on the Home ribbon that is a quick access to the Current file options.

    Today you can set data load, regional settings, privacy, auto recovery, query reduction and report settings. but in order to access these options you have to click File -> Options and Settings -> Options... This loads the Options window, Then you have to click on each section to change the properties.

    Instead I would like a button on the home ribbon, that has Options, Then all options of the current…

  18. colour

    Make it possible to fetch colors from dataset. Look to Reporting Services and RS's Expressions. In RS we can set colors from a dataset. Very flexible.

  19. dependencies

    Please consider providing an option so Query Dependencies view is always opened maximised and zoomed to extents. This would be two clicks saved each time it is opened if it is a big diagram.

  20. Dropbox filter- timeout to collapse the filter box, and colapse if cursor moves out of the box

    Filter drop boxes currently require an extra click to close. Users, especially new ones, struggle figuring out where to click to close the filter list dropdown. Three ides to fix this:
    1. auto timeout box closing after XX number of seconds, thinking of mobile here
    2. close box when mouse moves out of box on desktop
    3. turn the original box that shows the fist value under the expanded list into a "close" button for the filter, this would point the user to where to click to close :)
