  1. Excel Time Manipulation

    Make it easy to use time duration measures. Right now DAX is not supporting average shift time over different visualizations.

  2. Page/Tab Level Secuirty

    Row level security makes it hard to hide EVERYTHING from a specific user login having the page/Tab secuirty within Power BI for different user Login would be very helpful
    For Example: something like USERPRINCIPALNAME() which would be dynamic for different user login to hide and show pages that would act as Page/Tab Level Security.

  3. Get some working space for Format pane in Power BI by hiding the Visualization pane

    In Power Bi Desktop, While i am working with Format pane, I want to see an option that I can hide the Visualizations pane to the top, so that I can have place to work on Format options in a single view instead dragging down to look for all options.

  5. Allow Cards to dynamically resize for use in Tool Tips using Text fields

    When using Cards for displaying textual Tool Tip information, oftentimes there is a wide variability in the # of characters that are required. Because Card (and Page) sizes are static, some Tool Tips will be nearly blank (with only a couple of words of text), while others fill the entire area. It would be nice to be able to resize the Card and Page Size based on the number of characters needed in the Tool Tip information in order to minimize the tooltip area shown (and maximize display of the underlying report visual).

    User is using Analysis Services Tabular Model, but when passing dates from my model to Power BI or Excel, date hierarchies are not carried over on Live Connection.
    User could go back to Import instead of Live Connection but this would take my model size and performance back down a step. How to get dates working as well as Multi-Dimensional, in tabular? This is the problem with tabular:

    user would like the hierarchy to behave in the same way it does in excel on a multi-dimensional cube.

  7. Enable SharePoint Sensitivity Labels in Power BI Desktop

    As of 9 May 2020 we can enable sensitivity labels in SharePoint and OneDrive for Office files. It would be highly beneficial for enforcing governance and compliance if Power BI also supports sensitivity labels.
    While Sensitivity labels are currently available in Power BI Service under "Information Protection" settings to protect datasets, reports and dashboards, they currently don't protect the PBIX files that are stored in OneDrive for Business or in a SharePoint Online site.
    Currently all Office files including Excel files are protected, we can simply apply sensitivity labels from the desktop app. But what about PBIX files stored in…

  8. Option to Remove Horizontal Scroll bar and shrink the bar to fit the visual, just like excel bar graph

    Option to Remove Horizontal Scroll bar and shrink the bar to fit the visual, just like excel bar graph, so that we can see the entire tail spend in one visual.

  9. Tooltip Option for Radar Chart Visual

    I have imported the default Microsoft Radar Chart into my report. However, it does not include the Tooltip option, and as such, not able to customise the Tooltip report for this visual.

    May I request that this feature is included in this visualization!

    More description here:

  11. Option to choose multiple DAX measures at a time so we can move measures from one Home Table to another

    I feel there should be an option where I can choose multiple DAX measure at a time so we can move measures from one Home Table to another.

    Currently I need to select one measure and then I can move it to another Home Table. If that allows me to choose multiple DAX measures at a time, it will save a whole lot of time.

    Thanks!

  12. A friendly python console in query editor

    Could be really good to have a console to try pyhton code and see the results in the query editor to see if my code is running well in some step i did of my query editor.

    Sometimes I need to do things that M is not so friendly like calculate diferences between specific days hours, etc, but embeding a python script in the middle of the steps of power query is no easy and unfriendly.

    Maybe for the future replace query language M for python.

    Vote if you like this idea! :D

  14. Make the 60 day free trial license open to general users

    The Power BI product owner and BA need to understand all the sytem requirments with respect to the environment. I'm referring to the impact of COVID 19 on the workforce. People are looosing their jobs and are spending their time do home based training to improve their marketability when returning to the workforce. Also, these unemployed people do NOT have access to their workplace email addresses for obvious reasons - security.

    In my case, I'm a disabled citizen returning to work force in the government. I'm doing some training in BI and BA to improve skill sets when the federal…

  16. Power BI relative slicer

    We can apply relative visual-level filters to slicers to reduce the list of values that are displayed in the slicer. When we do this it only affects the values that are shown in the slicer, not the filter that the slicer applies to other visuals when we make a selection.
    Once we change the selected range in the slicer we'll see the other visuals update. It would be good to have an opportunity to apply the selected range in the relative visual-level filter to visuals through the slicer immediately before first selecting in the slicer.

  17. Allow Relative Date filter to include today's date for "calendar months"

    When you choose "last 12 calendar months" it would be useful to include the current month. It's frustrating that the end date is for last month and not today's date.

    Maybe don't hide the "Include today's date" option that appears for "last 12 Months". Or, add another option named "Include current month".

  19. Add DAX column in the Data view and control returns to first column

    I hope this is clear.

    I add a new DAX column in the Data view (right click on table and select 'New column') and hit enter to create my column. Control now returns to the first column in this table. When you have a lot of columns like I do this creates extra work. Also, if I forget about this new 'feature' and start typing I have now changed my new column.

  20. Changing the layout of the slicer search box

    I would be happy if I could change the layout of the slicer search box.
    -The display size of the search box can be changed.
    -You can change the size of the characters entered in the search.
    -Character color can also be selected.
