  1. Pasting conditional formatting from one column to another in a table visual

    Could we please have the ability to paste conditional formatting applied to one column of a Power BI table visual to other columns of the visual – this would save lots of time clicking around and applying the same rules over and over again to each column that we want to conditionally format.

  2. Automatically resize all visuals in a report with even spacing

    Would it be possible to specify the amount of white space around each and all visuals on a page, and then click a button and have all visuals automatically resize so that the spacing between them is even?

    The current red guide lines that appear when trying to line up visuals are often not exact enough to perfectly align visuals with even spacing without using the “General” section of the visual formatting pane. Specifying the amount of space between visuals has to currently be done on a visual by visual basis which is very cumbersome and time consuming.

  4. Manually Set Draw Order for Elements in Line Chart

    Need to be able to manually specify the order in which elements or fields are drawn on a line chart. There is currently no way to specify that FieldXYZ should be on top of all of the other lines.

    See: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Line-Chart-Overlapping/td-p/780436

  5. Show unique identifiers of visualizations in Power BI Desktop

    I mean the IDs you can see when using the JS API for Power BI Embedded. I think at the moment there is no way to see what the IDs of different elements are other than using code to read them manually. I'd love to be able to see all elements as json or something in desktop.

  6. Option to Use PBI Credentials for UserName()/UserPrincipalName()

    Power BI Desktop computes the values to use DAX functions UserName() and UserPrincipalName() based on the *local computer's* currently logged in user, not the user logged in to Desktop.

    It would be really neat if Power BI Desktop offered the option (perhaps a checkbox under settings) for UserName() and UserPrincipalName() to be populated based on account used to log into Power BI Desktop. After all, if I’m logged in to Desktop under a certain account, I’m probably going to be uploading to Service under that account, and so it’s quite likely that any RLS testing (or other use of UserName()/UserPrincipalName())…

  8. Split Rows in power query

    Ability to split merged rows in power query (same as split column features). A lot of times I get excel files that has already merged rows and unable to convert them single rows. If its possible to create something in power query to do that and retain all the data from the row that would be great!

    Thanks

  14. Sync Table selection across Report, Table and Data Model View

    I would like the table selection in Desktop to change to show the table I selected in the modeling view, or the diagram or report view. Currently when you change between modeling and table view, it doesn't change the selected table.

    This simple change would make browsing models really effective and help to navigate the data model structure.

  19. add option to sort the sort by column ascending or descending

    It would be great to be able to choose the order of sort by column asc / desc, this would allow users to display the data in the visuals in the default order of choice and allow to sort the matrix columns as well.

  20. When switching from DirectQuery to Import, I want to switch without user editing.

    The following error occurred when switching the connection method from DirectQuery to Import for the same data source.

    ----
    OLE DB or ODBC error: Type mismatch. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020005 (DISP_E_TYPEMISMATCH))"
    ----

    It was avoided by changing the mismatched data type, but I want the data to be able to be retrieved without user changes.
