  1. Hyperlink in Visuals

    You should be able to insert a hyperlink field into a visual so when a user selects on the visual, it can take them to the desired page.

  2. Percentiles as easy measures

    Sometimes you need to analyze data using the 75% percentile or 90% instead of the average mean. It would be a nice quality of life feature to have this as a quick measure.

    The idea would be create simplified rolling time period measures to enable trended analysis.

  4. Forecast in accordance with trend line

    When you use the forecast option in the analytics pane it does not follow the trend line even when the trend is obvious. Add a feature to allow it to do so, while still showing seasonality.

  5. Adding Trend Lines and Associated Equations to Scatter Plots

    Being able to add a trendline to a *scatter chart* would improve my Power BI visualizations. Having a trend line and the associated equation allows you to see the relationship in the graph more clearly. Doing this in Excel isn't the same... I'd want my audience to have the benefits of seeing the data in Power BI. Hopefully at least a linear trend line can be added, but it'd make sense to have all kinds of trend lines (exponential, log, etc.).

  6. Dataset Perspectives

    The new modeling view in Power BI Desktop supports multiple layouts and many features (multi-select) that make designing large models easier. Perspectives should be added to the new modeling view with a 'Manage Perspectives' icon next to the Manage Relationships and Manage Roles icons on the Modeling tab.

    In an initial release, the Manage Perspectives dialog should provide the same features as what's available to Analysis Services projects in Visual Studio. For instance, there should be a table with each column representing a distinct perspective and the modeler can quickly choose which tables and individual measures and columns are included…

  7. statistics algorithms for quick measure

    please we need to add more effective complex measures for quick measure feature like (
    -Prediction (e.g., linear regression)
    -Classification (e.g., decision trees, k‐nearest neighbors) -Time‐series forecasting (e.g., regression‐based
    -outliers identifier

    -and allow developers to add their own Dax Measures to be built in for daily use.

    Thanks,

  9. Base constant line off of measure

    Currently the constant line option in analytics only allows for a hard coded value. This field should allow you to select a measure to base the line off - so that it can dynamically update when filters are applied.

  10. export all the data to PDF

    it would be helpful if we have an option like exporting the whole data in the visual to PDF as we are exporting to Excel/CSV. example i have a table visual in power bi report in service and if i export as pdf i will only get a snapshot. but we need like all the data should export to PDF as a table format.

  11. Multiple layers on the map

    multiple layers on the map
    I need a map with two layers that show me one layer showing the active clients and the other layer visualizing the clients prospects. In this way, I could see the map of opportunities in a certain region that I have not been working on yet.

  12. RGB Background color for Apps

    Provide the capability to configure a RGB color background for PBI apps. This should not be complicated.

  13. Conditional formating based on date

    Now conditional formatting for tables and visuals are working only with numeric values. It would be really good if we can format cells/charts based on date. For example - if "Column A" < Today - red, and etc. This way we can track if we are late in orders delivery an many thing else. Function sort by colour may be good addition to this!

  15. Composite Storage Models

    This feature would split the storage of an imported table between in-memory (cache) and disk. The dataset designer would be able to set a policy defining the rows (partitions) of the fact table that would be stored in memory similar to an incremental refresh policy. For example, the model could always store the last two years of data in memory but data older than two years would be stored on disk. (Of course most report queries only access the recent data so this is where the most expensive and performant memory resources should be allocated).

    The data stored on disk…

  16. Conditional Formatting for Scatter Chart backgrounds

    It would be great if we were able to conditionally format the background of scatter graphs. With the play axis it is easy to see change over time, but not always obvious when the data you're seeing is good or bad.

    I have added an example below which shows risk exposure vs risk allowance. When risk exposure is greater than risk allowance this is bad and vice versa. I have achieved this with a transparent scatter chart and a background. I could also have added an image to the plot area. Either way though the background is not dynamic so…

  17. Please extend data categories for measures to live connection

    Last August (2018) ,data categories for measures was introduced by Power BI desktop team .This is a brilliant feature as it introduces possibilities of creating complex visualisation using SVG. This is also great KPI and sparklines workaround.My issue is that it does not work with Live connection (SQL Server/Analysis Service) (Image URL greyed out). Several organisation use their reports through live connection to tabular model. This also resolves dynamic KPI threshold issue which is a limitation in tabular model
    Please see http://www.mssqlgirl.com/dynamic-kpi-threshold-in-tabular-or-power-pivot.html
    Enabling image URL when connecting LIve will be a big win-win situation for both Power BI users and…

  18. Power BI Publisher for Excel - New Workspace support

    Power BI Publisher for Excel gave users an easy way to pull data sets into excel for analysis without having to go out to the Power BI service. Unfortunately, it only works with the Old Workspace experience. Will it be updated so that you can connect to data sets in New workspaces directly from excel?

  19. RLS - Restriction based on granular / aggregate data

    Organisational privacy policies requires that director level should not have access to granular data. Eg. which employee working timings.

    Directors should only have access to aggregate data reports. Eg. Total sum of Overtime hours in a department.

    The only way to achive this now is to have 2 separate PBI reports. Additionally, director reports should only have aggregate charts and "Build permission for the underlying dataset" should be disabled.

    The ideal solution, each Role in RLS, will have an option "Access to granular data". If granular data access is not given, then all detailed tables, showing granular data will be…

  20. Adding a "weeks" option to the quick measure rolling average functionality

    In the new quick measure functionality, when adding a calculation for rolling average the only options under "period" are days, months, quarters and years. Would like to see "weeks" added as an option since many company metrics are measured weekly and we need to be able to perform rolling averages over a set number of weeks.
