  1. Add measures directly in some of the views rather than back into the data source.

    We love to see the ability to add measures directly in some of the views rather than back into the data source.

  2. Provide a means to distinguish between records and lists within data in a column

    Sometimes data sources such as JSON could have both records and lists within the same column. This could be because of poor data structure. Currently BI designer does not provide a means to distinguish between which cell is a list and which one is a record. column

  3. Have the visualization icons colored

    As soon as we click the chart icon, we are presented with all possible visualizations possible.

    If its colored we can locate them in a snap.

    Grey icons causes fatigue

  4. Need the ability to configure size limits on the preview page. Large tables sometimes only show a few records.

    In the PowerBI Designer data preview screen, it would be good to have an option to have more data in the preview window. Currently tables get limited and the records shown are sometimes not helpful in data exploration

  5. Query Fields <> Report Fields

    I choose a subset of columns in the Query area, but all columns show in the Report area; I am expecting them to be same as in PowerPivot.

    I am so impressed with what you are doing with this - you are going to set the competition on their heels.

  6. Direct connection to web service without Excel spreadsheet?

    Direct connection from dashboard to web service?

    Is there a way, in HTML5 and JS, to create a connection to a WebService and create a chart? Especially if I do not have a spreadsheet.

  8. Visual level filter support for Buttons

    Since buttons have many conditional formating options now and they are affected by measures and other visuals, it is needed to assign individual visual level filters for buttons to make dynamic label and formatting changes for buttons.

  10. Creating a calcutaled table useful at run-time as it happens for a measure

    I think it could be useful to define a calculated table starting from an imported table with Power Query. This calculated table should affect to the filters created in a report. Moreover, it should be possible to create a relationship between the calculated table and the table to filter downstream. The behaviour of this run-time calculated table should be similar to a measure.
    The run-time calculated table could be a good tip from the point of data-modeling view, reducing the effort for the report designing.
    Thanks

  11. undo button location

    Undo button and save button are located very close and while using touch laptops sometimes it gets saved instead of undo.

  13. How to set privacy on Facebook?

    Setting privacy on Facebook helps you to hide your posts and details from people with whom you don’t want to share your details with. On sharing status updates, photos and other things, you'll find an option of audience selector tool there. Go to the tool and select who you want to share your post with. It remembers the audience you selected last time and uses the same audience when you share again unless you change it. You can find this tool in multiple places, like privacy shortcuts and privacy settings. Making changes to the audience selector tool in one place…

  14. Analyze in Excel should be an option at the report level

    Currently in order to disable Analyze in Excel you have to disable both that feature and Export Data at the tenant level.

    We use a lot of drillthrough tables with the only the data fields we want the users to see and they should have the option to Export Data to excel. So in order to disable Analyze in Excel, we have to disable Export Data and that will not work for us. We need the ability to have the option to turn Analyze in Excel on or off at the report level in PBI Desktop or in the Report…

  15. Need the ability to disable See Records feature in a visual

    The See Records feature can be both helpful and harmful. Harmful in the way that we don't want users to see most of the underlying data and just see counts. For those users that can see confidential data it is ok to see the records.

    Some of our fields are already calculated in the Query Editor so they are not measures. Therefore when we select the fields for our visuals it causes too many confidential fields to be exposed. There should be a way disable the See Records feature per visual. It should NOT be defaulted!!!

  16. Find and Replace for DAX Editor, Visual Titles, Text Boxes, Query Formula Bar and Advanced Editor

    Currently if I want to search for or replace a specific word or number in my DAX code for a measure I have to copy the code to a text editor, replace the terms I want to change, and paste the result back to Power BI. I would like to be able to use CTRL + F/ CTRL + H to do this without having to leave Power BI. This is a very basic function which needs to be present; even Notepad includes this! Similar functionality is needed in both the regular query formula bar and the advanced editor.

    Additionally,…

  18. Would like ability to save default values for visual formatting options (e.g. font size, face, weight, etc.)

    In an effort to standardize and streamline development of visuals in Power BI Desktop, it would be nice to be able to save default formats for fonts, etc., as we tend to not always use the out of the box defaults.

  19. 自动调整表格布局

    制作一个“表”/“矩阵”可视化对象时,建议添加自动调整“合适宽度”/“合适高度”等设置,这样方便制作的可视化对象能够布满整个磁贴,而不是用手动拉拽的方式去填充,非常耗时。希望能够采纳。
