  4. Customize Legend Formatting for Perfect Presentation of Totals on Stacked Charts

    Problem: We have users who want to see totals of Stacked Totals on Column Charts.

    Partial Solution: Create a Stacked and Line Column Chart
    >> format the line chart to have 0 (zero) width but present the data label

    Issue: If lets say the line chart is total sales, then total sales will show up in the Legend which is not desirable

    Suggested Idea: Can we edit the legend format so that in this case I could have changed the text color of the legend of the line chart to white so that it would not appear.

  5. Keep a visual always on back or top, Z-Order lock

    In many case we are using background shapes or objects which are overlapping with other visuals but when user clicks on a part of visual which is on back, it came to top and makes UX very confusing. There should be an option to lock visual z-order regardless of focused visual. So creating more stunning dashboards will be possible. eg. a map on background of whole report and some charts and filters on top of map.

  6. Tooltip to another report

    It would be great if I could set up a tooltip as a separate report, that can be used as a general tooltip for other reports. In that way I don´t have to repeat my tooltip pages (that I hide in my reports anyway) to show my tooltips in a consistent way. Maybe this could work in the same way as the current setup for drill through to other reports.

  7. While refreshing Data-source, it deletes the relationship between tables in PBI model

    After refreshing the data source in Pbix file, data model we observed that relationship between the tables was missing, and this caused of data exposing across multiple customers. To investigate more, thought was on the updates that have happened in Power desktop version, where there are some settings as mentioned below in Options menu in PBI Desktop which might be causing this behavior.
    -> Import relationships from data sources
    -> Update relationships when refreshing queries
    -> Auto-detect new relationships after data is loaded

    When talking to Microsoft team, they suggest to unchecked the first two above options which prevents the…

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  18. 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…

  20. 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.
