  1. New functionality "Sync Slicers" in Custom Visual visualizations.

    I tested the "Sync Slicers" new functionality and it's a very good option but it doesn't work with a Custom Visual, for example, Chiclet Slicer. Chiclet Slicer is a Custom Visual visualizations widely used and it will be very important that this new functionality work in it well.

  2. Interactive Python Visuals

    I know Python Visuals have just been supported for Power BI, but lets get the ball rolling on this one.

    Please support Visual Interactions with Python Visuals.

  3. Totals in stacked column charts

    During several presentations I get questions regarding the total of stacked columns. In the current situation you can select to label all the parts of the stacked column but no grand total. I would like to see the option to add a label to the Visuals which shows the total of the stacked column (this counts for values only). Ideally this total would deviate together with the drilldowns you select, so it stays interactive whatever filters you select or subsets you create on your dashboard.

  4. Rename Totals

    Please allow users to rename totals in the Table and Matrix visual. This is a very important feature to be able to label what the total means for a specific report (e.g. Month Actual adding up to YTD Actual) rather than simply "total". For the time being the only solution is to put a text box over to which goes away in focus mode, etc. Thank you!

  5. Hide the report page based on the user.

    Hiding the pages while sharing the report is an important option.

    E.g. If i am developing a report for 10 metrics and which I dont want some metrics owners can see other metrics. So if we have any option to select the page and hide/unhide. It will avoid the irrelevant page for the irrelevant user in the group.

  7. Enable developers to customize a Button for downloading reports to Excel/PDF/PPT

    Kindly help to provide a feature using which we can configure a button to export the page to either Excel/ppt or to pdf at one click. End Users complain that they do not want to click multiple links to download a report and want it to be done a the click of a button thus making it more intuitive.

  9. Export Theme as JSON file

    Once you have created a report, and taken many hours to manually formatted colors, fonts, grids, charts, cards and other visuals, allow for those settings to be exported as a theme (JSON file) that you can use use it in other reports.

  10. Improve Select All Slicer Performance

    There are instances where we need to filter down the data set on one variable, like contract number (say it's an enterprise contract for a number of locations with different customer numbers) because we want to use this filter to find all the related customer numbers. With the limited customer number list, I want to be able to "Select All" customer numbers now showing and then unselect the contract number because I want to see all business for these customer numbers, whether each item was sold under contract or not. However, when I click to erase the contract number, the…

  11. Flexible Drilldown

    Ability to create a not hierarchy drill down, that you can choose which dimension you want to detail the selected item. Eg. You have sales by state, so you can choose if you want to detail some state by product type or by store, or even choose if you want to see all your data by product type and so detail some type by state or store.

    Also, create some navigation map, to show what drilldowns was already been aplied.

  12. Axis inversion

    There should be a field button for inverting the axis. For example, instead of the Y-axis moving upwards from 0 to 100 it should be able to flip and start at 100 and move upwards to 0.

  13. Add Funnel chart

    Please add funnel chart in visuals with only metrics to be provided as an input. A sample would be funnel chart to see how much is moving to next step of funnel. example Visits > Prod Views > Carts > Checkout > Orders in ecommerce industry. This will help anyone to see how much is moving to next step and can show the problem area.

  14. Add tooltip option to slicers

    Adding tooltips to slicers would allow people to priotize or identify which filters to apply. Assume you were to share a sales report and it contains a slicer that allows you to filter data by store. The slicer works perfect if you have a predefined intention of checking specific stores (for whatever reason), but imagine I´m new in the staff; having a tooltip would help me identify the important stores as I am scrolling through the slicer. That tooltip could have a store ranking, amount of people employed at the store for example.

  16. Word wrap: Pie & Doughnut visuals

    Please could you implement "Category" word wrapping for Pie and Doughnut visuals.

    Currently the only way to include as much text as possible is to make it so small it practically becomes illegible, and even then depending the size and placement of the visual and the content of the category you still end up with "..." and loss of useful context.

    It would actually make sense to roll out word wrap across the board for all visuals.

  17. More than one dataframe in Python / R visuals

    It is somewhat limiting to only pass a single dataframe into Python/R. It would be great if a single Python/R visual could have 2 or more drop-boxes for data fields, serving as multiple dataframes in a single Python/R script.

  19. Adjust the visual characteristics (font, size, color, location) for the displayed time value of the "Play" axis in a scatter plot

    When a play axis is added to a scatter plot, the time value for that dimension is displayed in large characters that cannot be styled or modified. Any bubbles around it are obscured and hard to read. If the appearance of that label could be modified, the visual would be much more usable.

  20. Custom Visual Whitelisting

    To give the ability for an organisation to whitelist custom visuals. Unlike using the Organisation Store so that the visuals can be fully utilised.
