  1. Possibility to turn off auto-refresh Desktop PBI

    I would like to be able to have the possibility to work offline in PBI desktop meaning I want to trigger the data refresh at will.
    Currently when building a report every single change in the visual triggers automatically the refresh of the whole page.

  2. Would like ability to save default values for visual formatting options (e.g. font size, face, weight, etc.)

    In an effort to standardize and streamline development of visuals in Power BI Desktop, it would be nice to be able to save default formats for fonts, etc., as we tend to not always use the out of the box defaults.

  4. Enable Drillthrough using Summarized information and Keep All Filters Off

  6. Auto fit all visualizations within a report

    it would be great if there were a way to just auto arrange all the visualizations used in a report. I would like to have an option, perhaps in the View tab to click or turn on where Power BI would auto arrange and fit the visualizations i've used in a report. I would like this auto fit not only to automatically size my visualizations, align them, space them appropriately... but also have a native visual hierarchy such as Slicers would be on the top, or maybe on the left. If cards are used, they would be on the top,…

  8. Add an option to have multiple colors in a stacked bar chart by default

    in a stacked bar chart visualization, the data all defaults to one teal color. While it is possible to change the color associated to each category in the Axis, when there is numerous categories, this can be a fairly tedious process. I would like there to be a slider to turn multi-colors on in the stacked bar chart visualization and automatically associate different colors to the different categories.

  9. Comprehensive theme editor is required for Desktop

    Report themes are great. For quite some time we have been able to build JSON file that describe themes. At first they were relatively simple, but have evolved to include theming options for virtually every aspect of a report.

    The September 2019 edition of Power BI Desktop introduces a massive number of additions to theming. There are now so many that simple, textual JSON file editing is now impractical. We NEED a graphical theme editor.

    Power BI Desktop itself could act as the editor with one simple feature addition. Export current visual settings to a theme file (JSON). With that,…

  10. Multiple Y Axis

    I need to graph 6 types of data on one chart but all the values are vastly different so they dont look good on one axis together. In ZoomCharts Advanced Combo Visual i need more than 2 Y axis. Make it up to 12 and just keeps adding on the edges.
    For example from 0-10 seconds my rate of pumping is 0-10, my pressure is 10000-80000, my count is 0-1.5, my sand placed is from 50-250. The data ranges alot and need more axis is measure them on.

  11. important usability for everyone

    1- Multiple selection should be able to move with the direction keys
    2- Possibility of multiple selection with mouse
    3- Wait for plug-ins to load when converting to PDF
    4- Use shortcuts for page transitions (such as Ctrl + PgDn / PgUp)
    5- Cannot cancel when sorting a table column.

    I am quite pleased that. I am using RS x64 PBI.
    I hope you will be interested.
    Thanks to all Microsoft Team.

  13. Select all columns / select more than one column for field and conditional formatting

    All columns in a table may need the same conditional / field formatting. Much faster if possible to select several or all
    columns for the rule / formatting to apply.

  14. Increasing the drive time in arc gis

    Dear all,

    I have added warehouses as pins and need to understand which customers could be served with these warehouses. But maximum drive time of 1 hour/160 km is a big limitation. How I can I increase this? Does premium membership allow higher coverage?

  15. arc gis

    How can we increase the drive time in Arc GIS? 1 hour/160 km is not enough. I would like to check from which warehouses which customers could be served. Would it be not possible to increase the coverage to user-defined km's or drive times. Is such choice available in the premium version?

  16. Grouped Visuals should scroll together

    When grouping visuals that have scroll features, we should have the ability to make them scroll together. I understand not making this a blanket rule, but the option would be great so you could have two longer charts - something like a timeline - where the users can scroll back in time. Having two of these on the same page is frequent so if we grouped them, it would be nice to have them scroll together.

  19. Add "Using locale..." to the Transform Ribbon > Data Type dropdown

    Can you add "Using Locale..." to the Transform > Data Type dropdown option on the ribbon. It is there when you right click a column and select "Change Type" then "Using Locale...". It would make sense to also have it as an option on the ribbon as well.
