  1. Conditional Formatting for Total

    An option to conditionally format Sub-total columns and rows.

    At the moment my values are conditionally formatted but but the sub-totals are bare as they can't be formatted.

  2. Conditional Formatting Labels issue in Selection Pane

    Hi,

    The Conditional Formatting (CF) for Labels feature is great, been looking for that for a long time. It solves loads of my problems, however it now creates one.

    In Selection Pane, the visuals with a conditional formatted label appear with that text. If you change it it completely replaces the formula for conditional formatting. I need to rename the visuals in Selection Pane so I know which is which. I remember before CF being introduced, I used to turn title on, name the visual, then turn title off so I can visualise them in Selection Pane. Which means they…

  4. When I duplicate a page, I want the new page next to the old page, instead of at the end.

    Currently, a duplicated page is addes as last page in the list. This should be next to the duplicated page (or interactively with a prompt like in Excel).

  5. Additional Panes to Pop-Out of the Desktop Window

    The idea here is that there should be options to Pop-Out the additional panes like Bookmarks Pane, Selection Pane, Visualizations, Feilds & Filter Pane etc. separately off the Desktop App. This way the user working on Designing the page will get more space to work upon !!!
    This feature is already available with Formatting option in other office apps like Excel or Powerpoint etc.

  6. for better accessibility, allow devs to set a dark/high contrast background for ease of use

    I'm visually impaired in my right eye so I find it difficult to work with bright white layouts and tool bars and data/graph icons. I can't be alone in this. Please can you make it possible to create a dark/night time dev screen. The previous theme was manageable but the bright June 2019 has put me at a significant disadvantage.

  7. Allow bookmarks and bookmark folders to be exported to pdf

    The Export to pdf functionality allows us to export or print the report pages. But it would be nice if we could also print/export the bookmarks (all of them or just a folder/group)

  9. Disable auto calculation of measures in desktop

    I would like the ability to temporarily disable the calculation of measures in PowerBI Desktop, something like the manual calculation option in Excel. I have large data models with dozens of measures each, and when I create a new measure it takes a long time to do. The more measures I add, the longer it takes.

  10. Search box when publishing

    When you're a report author and probably owns a lot of workspaces, you may experience the same as I do currently. When publishing content to an app-workspace I'll get a list of all my available workspaces. It would be handy to have a search box in the window where you pick the workspace to deploy your Power BI content to.

  12. Where is my created measure?

    After creating a measure, it will be good to have a notification or highlight about where the latest measure got created. It is created by default in the table which was selected in the model before we created the measure.

  15. Tabs management (Improvement) - Color, Index, Grouping, Hidding, Export

    My models have too many tabs (using the same datasets) and would love to have more features to help we handle it.
    Coloring Tabs, Index of tabs to move them up down, Grouping the many tabs (Hide/unhinde). Exporting the tab names so we can make a index outside BI.

  16. Able to view Report, Data and Model simultaneously

    Would be great to able to view the Report, Table and Data model all at the same time. I would assume that most people would be working with more than one monitor and find myself having to take a screenshot of the data model to reference when authoring DAX. Would be great if there was a way to have multiple views so people wouldnt have to either take screenshots for click back and forth.

    Would also be nice to have a separate window to enter in DAX as well.

  17. Drill down button activated

    In our reports, we always need to have drill-down (the single flash facing down) arrow to be activated. Any solution we can have it activated when we publish a report? I mean the default status=activated.

  18. Model view improvements needed

    The model view in PBI desktop needs updated to show info that's available when looking at the report view. Namely:

    1. It should show icons for calculated columns and measures
    2. It should show icons for date, location fields
    3. It should show the Sigma icon for numeric fields set to have an implicit aggregation applied to them

    #3 is most important for me - it's frustrating that on the report view I can see a list of all the columns where I need to turn off implicit aggregations (by setting "Default summarize = none", but when I get to…

  20. Dynamic change in X Axis

    Is it possible to specify a measure in X-axis field? And the measure should be able to return a column name based on some logic.
