  1. Set Map Domian - Power BI Desktop

    Allow the visualization to set a maximum domain to limit zoom out. Right now a slicer selection can mean a zoom out to the full world view and then force the user to zoom back in. Maybe enter a lat/lon for map center and set a max width for the map.

  3. create relationships on "non key" attribute and defining atribute relationship in tables

    When using a star scheme datawarehouse, sometimes you have tables that relate on another by using a non key attributes.
    It would be great if you we can, like in SSAS Multidim Cubes:
    - create these kind of relathionships
    - and define attributes relationships for each table

  4. Protect PC from R code.

    We want to protect our PC from R data source/R visual code.
    R code can write the files on PC, or can access the SQL Server databases.
    Without R code, Power BI pbix files are safe for PC.
    BUT with R code, not save.

  5. Better processor and memory consumption

    Improve the performance of the Desktop client. Some times even with an i7 and 8gb of memory I think my computer will burn. Other competidor s doesn't have this problem.

  6. Create a feature that publishes your result dataset in some tabular format on the HDInsight/Hadoop layer labelled with option re polybase

    Create a feature that publishes your result dataset in some tabular format on the HDInsight/Hadoop layer labelled with option re auto generation of polybase table. then other business users could simply access generated datasets by business given the powerbi desktop sharing and usability is so limited and going down the path of enabling people to link to the power bi files is not helping business rather propagating the issue we are all facing created within excel, make the tool usable and functional and use the platforms for storing results for sharing and other use not the files.

  8. Visuals - Move MORE OPTIONS

    Remove the bar (more options) on the top of the visuals to the left or right sides or overlay on the visuals itself. Would be nice if you give us the access to disable more options from the visuals.

  11. Ability to select (decimal) notation type.

    I'm currently unable to select the decimal notation type in Power BI desktop, or at least in some visuals.

    It would be nice to be able to select to use a dot or a comma to seperate thousands or millions for example.

    Maybe add an option to select a currency aswell.

  14. Quick fix - Pin tiles while on report so we can explore the data when deciding what and how to publish

    This has to be a quick fix, and is a major heartache to my team.
    Are you tired to grab the tiles when you are actually trying to explore the data in desktop? to my team this happens (SIMPLY TOO OFTEN) because we use power BI desktop to explore the data before settling on something to publish.

  17. Divide the "General" submenu in the Format pane in "Position" and "Size"

    While waiting for better layout capabilities please divide the "General" submenu in the Format pane in "Position" and "Size" because right now it is pretty annoying that when having multiple visualizations selected the position gets set as soon as the general submenu is opened.

  18. UI to display Signed in Account

    Power BI Desktop to display the Account Signed in, in the top right corner of the Application window so it is easily seen the service to which publication will be made.

    This is similar to what now exists in other Microsoft Office365 applications. Switch Account works perfectly for my OneDrive for Business and SharePoint services.

    It will not be so apparent to developers working for one organisation but when you work for more this is necessary to preclude accidental publishing to the wrong organisation, and will not require signing out and back in again.

  20. Connect fields in tables as the same so filters work over multiple tabels, like for example month or date etc.

    If I have multiple tables with information, with in both tables a column with the month or date. When I create one report with charts from both data sources. And I click on a month in a chart based on dataset 1, the chart from dataset 2 is not filtered on that month. So I would like to be able to define both columns as the same time of infromation.
