  2. Chiclet Slicer: allow measures to be used for images and/or display labels

    Currently the Chiclet Slicer only allows column values to be used as the image field. I'd like to use a measure instead so that I can dynamically built an svg image. I'd also like to be able to pass a measure to be used as the display label.

  4. Allow the definition of ambiguous data relationships when creating data models & force the super user to select the desired relationship

    This is a feature that other BI tools like SAP provide, but PBI does not allow it.

    When creating relationships in a data model, PBI does not allow you to create an ambiguous relationship. We need to be able to create ambiguous relationships in a model. When a super user (report writer type) uses data associated with an ambiguous relationship, they should be prompted to choose the relationship they desire for their report.

  5. Perpetuate the table/query structure in a data model to Power BI Desktop when using a data model as a source for thin report writing

    When building reports (what we call "thin" reports) in Power BI Desktop from an existing data model (used Power BI Dataset option for the Get Data to retrieve a data model), we need the table/query structure from the model to be the way the table/query structure in presented in the Fields section within Power BI.

    For example:
    In Query Editor within a data model a table/query structure may look like this:

    Order Subject Area [5]

    Order line
    
    Unified Order
    Standing Order
    Unified Order Line
    Order Reconciliation

    Shipment Subject Area [3]

    Shipment Number
    
    Shipment Status
    Shipment Reconciliation

    When this model is…

  7. Remove Null values from a column

    Problem statement: To hide null/redundant columns from Power BI visual (Matrix)

    Brief case: For a particular item code, there are some set of columns which are null. The requirement is to display only those columns which have at-least one value in them and hide which are completely null.

    For better understanding refer the image below
    Scenario 1: - If user selects ID=4, then column = “Mother’s name” should be hidden

    Scenario 2: - If user selects ID=3, then column = “Mother’s name” and “XYZ” should be hidden

    This should happen dynamically whenever a user selects any ID, columns which are…

  8. Display Measure DAX Formula in Connect Live

    When I use Get Data > Analysis Services > Connect Live mode to work with my AS Tabular model as documented the Modeling features are disabled. I am fine with that.

    However, it would be a good idea to show the DAX Formulas when we click on the Measures which are part of the AS Tabular model in read only mode. This is useful to understand the measure.

  9. Providing for Sole Traders/One man operations

    I run my own consultancy company in the United Arab Emirates [MKR Consultants FZE].
    This is a one man (woman) operation and as such I have an outlook email that I use as my "company" email, and a gmail account I use for personal emails.
    The account creation will just not allow me access with either of these emails.
    If there was some way to register as sole trader/one man operation and therefore allow account creation with an outlook email it would be enormously helpful to me.
    The Power BI Desktop will not allow me to create an account because…

  11. Cutomise table refresh sequence

    This idea is to customize the sequence in which the tables are refreshed in desktop version.

    Example: I have 7 tables in my report. And it refreshes the tables based on ascending order in which tables were first imported. I would like to have the first 4 tables refreshed the usual way and then jump on to the 7th table and then 5th, 6th.

    Why this idea? The reason I ask this is because I have a table created for the refresh timestamp. I want this table to be refreshed at the end after all the tables are refreshed so…

  14. Shapefile compatible

    Currently you cannot use shapefies in Power BI as they need converting into a different format which never works for UK maps.
    I would either like to see region and local authority added as a shape map option or make Power BI compatible with shapefiles.

  16. RLS it is not respecting Dax functions

    When we use Report level filters in the report it is working as expected as Dax function result but when we use RLS it is not respecting Dax('All' and few other filter functions).

    We have a report with report level filters. The report also includes Dax functions that summarize data into benchmark values that ignore the report level filters. When we apply RLS, the Dax functions no longer are able to ignore the report level filters.

    Please make sure functions should work all times.

  17. Top / Bottom N filter on top of a visual for easy navigation

    Can we have top / bottom N filter just above the visual in the report page for easy navigation for selection of Top / Bottom N filter. This feature is available in Tableau so that people migrating from Tableau to Power BI should have the same experience instead of selecting the visual and navigating to the right filter section for applying filter. Thanks in advance.
