  1. Auto resize table font size

    When a table is resized, it would be nice to have the font reduced in size and the entire characters fit within the area of the table.

  4. 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?

  6. clear filter option on title for slicers

    your new September release has added nice title capability on slicer but does not have the clear filter option. I dont want to use both the header and title so they need to have same font capabilities and clear filter option

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  14. Provide option to explore the data in the tables (add filters, sorting etc, similar to PowerPivot)

    Provide option to explore the data in the tables (add filters, sorting etc, similar to PowerPivot) - I'm missing feature from PowerPivot where I can explore the data I'm getting as a part of data set - e.g. filter on certain things (example - to see if last week data got added or not). I really hope it will be added soon, otherwise there is no way to check if you are getting the data you expect as result of the query.

  17. Bar Chart Display Labels issue

    When the Bar Chart is selected and the DATA labels are turned on. There is not an option for NONE for the display units. If you choose one of the current option (Thousands, Millions, Billions or Trillions) you are not able to undo that selection. I just want a number without it being turned into a Dollar amount.

    None option should be one of the choices in the drop down list.

  18. Have the ability to copy an entire tab within Power BI Desktop

    If we had the ability to copy the tabs it would protect any changes you make. That way if you screw up a tab page you won't lose all the formatting or anything. I know you can copy the entire file and start over there but if I make changes to other tabs and I want to save those changes but I screwed up only on tab, that other saved file will not have the changes I wanted to keep.

  19. Create table in powerbi for disconnected slicer

    Disconnected slicers are very useful for building conditional measures. They sometimes require very simple tables (ex. two columns and three rows) I'd like to be able to create a simple table in PowerBI instead of referencing a datasource
