  1. improve performance of desktop

    I'm tired of waiting and seeing "Working On It" after nearly every click in PowerBI desktop. It takes forever to create dax formulas and change them and to move objects around in folders.

  2. Customize Ribbon in Desktop (not Query Editor)

    Enable creation of custom groups within the Home Tab of the Ribbon. Allow users to remove certain icons and groups from the ribbon. This is available in Excel, and my Home tab is highly customized so that 95% of the icons I use are available in one place.

    I'm always flipping between the Modeling tab to format a measure, and then back to the Home tab to enter Query Editor.

    There are some icons that I've never used, and would like to replace them with more often used functions.

    Why not allow both to be on the same tab?

  4. Add imported theme to "Switch Theme" menu

    The September 2018 desktop release made Switch Theme generally available. With it you can import a custom theme from a .json file.

    Once imported, the imported theme become active, but, even though there is a theme Name in the .json file, the new theme name is not added to the menu of choices and there is no indication that the theme with that name is now active.

    Please add imported themes to the menu and do something to highlight which theme is currently active.

  5. Clickable tooltips on hover

    During the first TripleA event with Amanda for Power BI I submitted a feature request question that got quite a few quick kudos. The feature was to have clickable tooltips on hover as well as resizing of the tooltip features. What the response was is that it's a fairly large task for the dev team to make that work and the PBI team would need some good use cases and reasons for this feature enhancement.

    The reason for this is mainly because of a few of the hiccups we've experienced in the product.


    1. There are quite a few limitations in…

  6. Template Generator

    It will be helpful if PowerBi can support the functionality that I can create a page as a template and duplicate another 3 pages based on the "template page" with different filter (i.e. department). Then any changes I made on the "template page" will be automatically applied to the other 3 pages so that I don'

  7. Add a Clear Filters button in Table Tools Ribbon

    Now that we have contextual ribbon tabs, in the data view we need the Clear Filters button like Excel. One click to remove all filters.

  8. Display sum of column in line and stacked column combo chart

    Add option to display the sum of column as only the sums of column series are shown. Showing the total sum as line values is not an option when already using this for a different dataset.

  9. FutureProofing for Known Header Changes - Power Query

    Scenario:

    While I am building a report, I determine that a field name needs to change at the source in a SQL server, but still need to move forward with my current report. I send a note to the dev group to make that change, but still rename it for now in the query. Unfortunately, when the dev team fixes it upstream, my report will then break - at some point in the future.

    Ask: If a header name change made in an applied step is then reflected upstream [same name as the query attempts to change it to] then…

  10. Auto expand of formula bar

    When I'm in the report function designing my dashboards, it annoys the bleep out of me that each time when I click on a custom table/ custom column the formula bar expands by default. 9 out of 10 times I'm not even interested in the formula bar.

    Would be nice if there is a function to disable the formula bar in Report or open it by default as 1 visible line?

  12. Year filter locate on current year and month filter locate on current month on report open

    So I'm asking that the year filter locate on current year and for the month filter to locate on current month. ie, it may be 17 Dec 2019 but the date hierarchies of year, quarter, month will locate to their current date values on report open.
    The user is free then to select a discrete month of say "September" when it is now December. In Tableau this is referred to as setting the filter to "latest date on workbook open".

  13. Trash for measure

    Hi!, I think it will be useful to create a bin where you can throw away the measures you don't want to recover them if necessary.

    Thanks!

  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.

  17. IntelliSense Should Use Best Practice Column and Measure Naming Conventions

    There is a clearly defined and accepted best practice for referencing columns and measures in the DAX language.


    1. Column names should ALWAYS reference the table name.
      TableName[Column Name]

    2. Measures should NEVER reference the table name.
      [Measure Name]

    This is a fundamental concept accepted by everyone with knowledge of the DAX language (everyone I know anyway).

    IntelliSense in DAX sometimes follows this convention and sometimes it does not. I have created a short video (40 seconds) showing 3 examples. https://youtu.be/CvaRhKrnHRk

    There are other places where column names are appended to measure names too, such as inside Quick Measures, and I have…

  20. Power BI desktop aggregate the stream data every [X] number

    Just like if my stream data displayed every 1 second, and in Power BI I would like to see the data every 5 second, the value could be aggregated.
