  1. Replace fields in field well

    At the moment you can only add or remove fields from the field well. When you have a chart with formatting configured on a field and you want to use a different field you can only add the new field and then you have to re-apply all the formatting. It would be great if you could drag and drop the new field on top of an existing field and preserve the formatting.

  3. Advanced Filtering option for Date fields should NOT ask for Time as an input.

    Currently, Advanced Filtering option for Date fields displays the time option even when we use a date field for filtering. Even though the default value of time is 12 AM, users find it unnecessary to have that option as the field is of type "Date" and not "DateTime".
    This is very confusing to the users. It should appear only when a DateTime field is used for filtering.

  5. Sorting improvements in Matrix and Table


    1. Sorting option should be available for Basic Filtering. User should be able to see the latest dates first(ascending order) without using Relative, Advanced Filtering or Slicers.


    2. Sorting should be available for individual columns in matrix such that the individual columns for specific rows can be sorted.


    3. Sorting should be available for multiple columns in table.

  6. Export to CSV

    Hello,
    In https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/9609906-export-powerbi-desktop-to-csv-excel its been reported that export to CSV is implemented.

    Unfortunately its very limited aka you can't export more than 30k rows.

    Considering the fact that PBI can import hundred of thousands of rows its pretty strange that it can export only 30k rows...

    I believe that a lot of people out there working with huge datasets and doing extensive ETL operations and this feature is really needed.

    Also you can't export from Data tab, only from visuals which is very limiting.

    Please consider to make export limit only dependent on RAM available without artificial limitations. Thanks!

  8. Proper age calculation function

    HI guys,

    I think it would be a great idea if we have a function like Datediff, but that calculates the age based on the entire date and not just the years between two dates.

    AgeCalculation(<columndate1: 1924-08-18'>,<columndate2:'2019-08-08'>):
    result = 95

  12. Disable search as you type in the field panel or prevent single character search.

    With large amounts of fields or measures, the search bar is way too quick to try and search for the first character you type in, causing memory issues enough to crash the desktop app.

    Setting it to only search if a button is pressed or preventing it from trying to search for one letter would help with this issue

  13. improve conditional formatting

    Conditional formatting with rules should have more flexibility, especially for < and/or >.

    Add ability to conditionally format based on field comparison (say IF #field# < > #field# THEN format).

    Also would be nice to have ability to conditionally format values in visuals (if value exceeds 'x' then format) to call out outliers/defects.

  14. Click on column in visual show column in fields

    When you rename a column in a visual it's incredibly frustrating that you can't hover or click on the column in the visual to show what field is actually being used. Please add the ability to either hover or select a column name in a visual and then display it on the right hand fields list to determine what column/measure is being used.

    Report tool tips are not supported for custom visuals and we see this as a limitation in the below documentation.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-tooltips#limitations-and-considerations

    Please implement this feature in Power BI as many users are looking for this feature

  18. Auto Collapse "Formula" or "new Table" dax window

    When I create a new table using DAX , or create a new Measure or Column using DAX in "Power BI desktop" , the formula bar expands down , which disrupts the workspace. It would be good , if it can Auto-hide when I move cursor away from formula Bar.

  19. Value decimal places and % decimal places are initially greyed out

    When editing the detail labels for my pie chart, I wanted to change the number of decimal places for the percentages. However, I could not change the value from its default "Auto" value. When I looked online for a solution, I found that you can click inside the box, and then scroll to change the value. And then that's when the arrows become clickable. Please make this minor fix.

  20. Allow column statistics and value distribution boxes to be resized

    It would be nice to resize the column statistics and value distribution boxes shown in the Power Editor. Presently, it is impossible to the change the size to right of the former and left of the latter. Some of the values of the column statistics get cut off as a consequence.
