  3. Google Assistant integration with Power BI

    Google Assistant integration with Power BI.
    Similar functionality of this in an Android smartphone - https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/introducing-siri-integration-with-power-bi-mobile-ios-app-preview/

    A user can invoke Power BI using "Ok Google" wake up word. And, then have the ability to ask questions of the data. And, have the ability for Power BI to internally call "Ask a question" API to show visualizations on the fly as well as ability to open a pre-built report or dashboard.

    Have the ability to drill-up and drill-down.

    Lastly, have the ability to send the visualization, report, etc. to the users' email - by just saying "Ok, please email this to…

  5. Retain Filter selection in iPAD after clicking the refresh button in the page. Currently this is possible in Power BI service

    Hello,
    If I select any filter and drag the page little bit, the page get refreshed and all the filter selections get changed to the default one. Retaining filter while refreshing the page in ipad would be very helpful like the way it is currently in the Power BI service. Incase we would like to change the filter selection to the default one, we should have "Reset to default" option like the one we have in Power BI service.

  6. Allow for simpler account switching between tenants

    It is next to impossible to switch between accounts/tenants in the Power BI mobile client. The user must first log out of the existing account/tenant, and then establish a connection with the different tenant. This is a multi-multi step process.

    Contrast this with the multi tenant capabilities of the Teams mobile app, or of Outlook, SharePoint etc. We need better account switching in the Power BI mobile app.

  9. Multiselect option for mobile users

    There are at leat 3 important festures that fires with ctrl+click gesture: on slicers, on a single visual or, the most recent, on multiple visuals. The problem is that on mobile device we can not use ctrl+click gesture.
    I suggest to add a mobile app “multiple select” toggle option that switch between the single and multiple selection navigating a report.

  10. Stacked visual elements for mobile phone view

    Phone portrait layouts are created from visual elements created for the desktop report page view. However, elements can be stacked on the desktop and the z-order can be adjusted. Apparently elements cannot be stacked when creating the phone portrait view. Some might consider this a bug since these composites are a visual on the report page that cannot be used on the phone.

    We often use a graphic object to draw a frame around other objects and give a title to the group. We are searching for an alternative for the phone view.

    Microsoft, please consider this important enhancement to…

  12. Support New Filter Pane on Phones

    Filters displayed on the mobile app should respect the rules configured in the report design. Hidden filters should not show in the mobile filtering and locked filters should not be changeable. The fact that mobile filtering does not act like the New Filter Pane means we can't use the New Filter Pane for any reports and have to use slicers instead. We need a consistent UX. Reports need to be filtered the same way in the web portal, on tablets and on phones

  13. Add Externally Shared Reports to "Shared with Me" Section in Mobile App Without Switching Tenants

    When an external user opens the Power BI app and logs in, by default he/she is connected to his/her default tenant. The user has to somehow force a tenant switch using one of the methods outlined in this article (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-mobile-apps-now-support-azure-ad-b2b-guest-users/) to access the report being shared to him/her from the external tenant. Ideally the app would be smart enough to look for content shared with the user outside of the current tenant in the “Shared with me section” so he/she could Favorite the report and not always have to refer back to a URL (that is external from…

  14. Mobile

    From a graphic designer standpoint, the mobile app does not have many options for layout. I would suggest adding in an element like "Page Background" tab to aid in organization of data.

  16. Enhance Presentation mode by bookmark

    Please enhance the new presentation mode. In my opinon it would be much more interesting, if you would add the functionality to play a certain group of bookmarks in a loop! This would be the solution for many presentation
    and shop floor applications!
