  4. Allow Bi-Directional filtering for DirectQuery reports

    The dropdown for bi-directional filtering is disabled on DirectQuery reports. This makes reporting on star schemas difficult.

  5. 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.

  6. Autofill first argument of merging with the selected column field name

    When I am merging two tables, it is easier t o navigate to the field I want to click on and then click the merge button.

    It would be good to autofill the first argument of the merge wizard with the field that I have highlighted before I click the merge button.

    Selecting fields in the wizard popup box is too small otherwise.

  7. Excel 2016 version

    Allow Excel 2016 to run the latest version of Power Query.

    You can do this in 2010 and 2016 using the Power Query plugin.

    I recently updated to Excel 2016 and seems the Get Data Power Query is a few months behind on features and performance.

  10. Calculated field support image url

    If the measure / calculated field would support image urls you could do quick and dirty KPI based on a DAX expression

    Indicator = IF(SUM ( Dashboard[Lead Paid Count]) < 100, "https://redarrow.png", "https://greenarrow.png"))

  12. Allow sharing with others outside work domain

    I work as a consultant for others that are outside my business domain, and I'd like to be able to share my Power BI reports with different individuals. It appears that they can only be included if they have an account on my business domain.

  14. Ability to convert a location to a country

    When filtering on locations, you get a huge list of GPS coordinates, and I think it would be nice to have an ability to convert those coordinates to Countries or cities.

  15. Data Source API

    Provide an API for Power BI Desktop that allows developers to create their own data sources. It's literally the very first feature I went looking for in Power BI. If you had such a feature, you wouldn't have to do all of the work yourselves for individual data source requests (of which there are quite a few already under review). My personal interest is to create a PowerShell data source , so that PowerShell can be used as glue to open Power BI up to many other data sources (including REST, which was one of the requests). Being able to…

  17. ability to select multiple tables at once in data modeller

    at the moment you cannot select multiple tables and drag those, to create your data model (relationships tab). It would be much easier to create a clear data model if this would be possible.

  18. Integration with all MS office apps

    One of the benefits of MS office is it's inter connectivity. Being able to connect Power BI with Word (for written summaries on dashboards), excel is already incorporated, but Access, OneNote, etc... That's a signature of Office Products. Power BI should be no different.

  20. Filter - Combine rest of data as "Other"

    If I filter data in a table or ring / pie chart, the sums neglect the left out data. There should be an option to sum the rest of the data as "Other".
