  1. Automatic page refresh for datasets from PBI Sevice

    The (preview) feature "Automatic page refresh" for DirectQuery in PBI Desktop is really great.

    Please implement this feature for live connections to datasets in the PBI Service aswell.

  2. Conditional Formatting: Include FONT Formatting in Backround formatting dialogue

    Conditional formatting is obviously great. However...It becomes a bit of a pain to have to go through two processes to format a single field.
    For example, if you want to format a field in a table to enable a backround colour, you often find that the default text colour makes reading the value against the backround difficult. (black font against a dark colour.
    To get around this, we have the option to format the font colour based on the same rules as we have set for the backround colour. In other words, we have to do the conditional formatting twice:…

  3. Ability to toogle between original column-names and user-defined.

    Well, the fastest way to change names through all visuals is obviously renaming the column instead of the field-name in each visual. This however makes it much harder to keep track and create new visuals, as you need to hover over the renamed fields to reveal the original column-name.

  4. Single Select slicers should have option to single select OR select everything

    For Slicers in "Multi-select with CTRL" mode AND the Select All option, that Select All option should work exactly as the Clear Selections option does that appears as a pop-up option in the Slicer header.

    But it doesn't. Instead:
    After "Clear All", if users click 1 item, only 1 item is selected. Good.

    After "Select All", if users click 1 item, N - 1 items are selected. They multi-selected without CTRL, but didn't want this.

    Clicking the Select All option puts the slicer into "Multiselect without CTRL" mode.

    That "Multi-select with CTRL" option should mean that the user HAS to…

  5. Allow tooltip to visually identify which series has triggered it

    Tooltips are a great interactive feature, but if you have a visual with a field in Legend, then it can be hard to determine quickly which item in the tooltip list corresponds to which point on a visual.

    It would be real handy to have the series name in a tooltip visually indicate that this is the series that the user is hovering over. (Or perhaps has filtered on)

  6. Add read-only property to all editable controls

    Please add a "Read Only" property to all editable controls (visuals, filter panes/panels, text boxes, buttons, etc.) with a default setting of False. If a report developer sets this to True for any control, it means that control cannot be edited when report is viewed in the service or in an embedded application; it can only be changed from within Power BI Desktop (i.e. only by the report developer). If you want to offer more flexibility, then call it a "Read Only Level" property, with "0" as default (meaning the control can be edited, just like it acts now), and…

  7. Single selection in Filter pane need to improved

    If I have two fields in Filter pane, when I select one value, 'Select All' option is appearing in other one even though, 'Require Single Selection' is checked. When I Uncheck and Check, just 'Select All' go away but comes back when use other filter. This doesn't make sense.

  13. Automatically does correct amount of brackets

    Im always tired of putting in multiple brackets to close a measure / column. It would be easier if PBI put in the correct amount for you.

    When we finish a measure most of the time there's either too many or too little like its simple enough for
    PBI to detect the amount of functions used and put them in automatically.

    Especially for newcomers, finishing a measure and pressing enter only for PBI to flag that you have too many brackets then having to wait again for it to checkover the formula. its frustrating

  14. ribbon

    Add an option to the existing Ribbon Chart to display 0's as a reducing to 0 flow instead of a gap. The current chart does not show the flow from a value to 0 and back to the next value in the same series so gaps will appear and it looks odd.

  16. Can we have a stop button for refresh

    If a dataset refresh is taking more time, currently user is not having an option to stop that refresh(similar to STOP execution in SQL server). It will be good if such an option is introduced in Power BI desktop

  17. Allow to order Fields Pane by original column order

    When you query into Power BI the columns stay in order for the data view. However, the Fields Pane sorts the column titles (headers) alphabetically. This is slightly problematic as it creates inconsistencies in how the data is organized. Not a big deal, but it would be nice if things would all stay sorted the same way.

  19. Non Filtering Parameter

    When looking at parameters, I see they only filter the data. Would like to be able to create a parameter to use in a formula. User enters a value for a parameter, and that value is used in a formula. I see the What If, but that does not allow for dates.

  20. Relative Date Filter Between 2 Dates

    When using Data Fields and adding a filter you can put a relative date filter that you can choose last, this, next / days, months years. It would be a good idea if the user could select a range of dates to show data in a specific range e.g Show data from 15th of one month to 16th of the next month for the last months set of data and this data will refresh until you use it on the next months date you have used as your filter so you do not have to keep changing the dates as…
