  1. Composite Key support in Power BI

    Provide support for composite keys natively as a modeling feature. This would be useful to create relationships between tables that join on multiple columns without having to create a surrogate key by concatenating fields

  4. Map flows Visualization

    That would be awesome if we could create binary map flows. For example having 3 parameters : origin, destination, and a value that would affect the arrow width.
    Then the extra plus would be to be able to drill down or up according to the origin/dest, for example if the input is a city, drilling up would group by country, then maybe area and continent.

  5. Edit Relationships in Power BI Online (Website)

    It would great if we can modify/create relationships in Power BI Website. For instance, when we connect directly to an Azure Data Warehouse, there is no relationships between the tables. So having the ability to edit relationships on Power BI Online would be really good.

  13. Add the ability to use FILTERS in "Get Data" in Power BI Desktop.

    Today, the only way to add a filter to the GET DATA process in Power BI is to enter a custom query. that means that it is impossible to access large datasets without timing out because the "tagging fields" process pulls back too much data without a filter. Can you add the ability to use filters in the wizard, as you can now in Power Pivot, Tabular, and in Excel in the data designer wizard, into the Power BI Desktop app?

  17. Update Available upgrade automatic opition

    When an upgrade is available an end user has to find the link on the internet to upgrade. The software should give us options on how to update and happen from the software itself.

  19. Allow a local refresh of just one table instead of having to refresh all tables every time.

    This would be helpful in the online version as well. I often have to add fields in order to make the relationships work with my reports (they do not always seem to understand the relationship between objects.) As a result, I need to add new columns. Each time I do this I have to refresh the entire dataset which is painstakingly slow. Can you please allow us to refresh just one table at a time?
