  1. Group level filter

    Group level filters similar to Visual or Page level filters.
    It would complete the functionality of groups and also would make bookmarking easier.

  2. Decomposition Sort Order

    The new Decomposition Visual is great, but it assumes you always want to sort high to low on the metric value. That doesn't work if you add a time field like Month, where you want to show the data over a year, you want by category order. Also some metrics have meaning where lower is best, for example defect rates, so you need full control over the sorting at each decomposition level. The developer should be able to predefine the default sort per level, but allow the end user to change.

  5. Single "Apply" button option for multiple prompt/slicers

    Single "Apply" button option for multiple prompt/slicers.
    We have Power BI reports having multiple prompt/slicers and wanted to keep the "Apply" button to avoid the instant refresh for each selection which takes longer time for the report to render.
    But it shows multiple "Apply" button which takes more space and not for better user experience.
    Please provide the option to enable only one "Apply" button per report/dashboard like other reporting tools.

  6. Dynamic Measure Selection and Calculation without individual switch statements

    There’s 2 mains problems w/ maintenance of dynamic measure selection based on the switch() statement as is. DAX performance is very slow, and not only the dimension table for the measure names needs to be maintained (which is fine), but all DAX dependent upon it as well. Ideally you could do instead of:
    SWITCH(SELECTEDVALUE(Dim[Measure Name]), "measure1",[Measure1], ...),

    Simply:
    CALCULATEMEASURE(SELECTEDVALUE(Dim[Measure Name])) as well as

    CALCULATEMEASURE(SELECTEDVALUE(Dim[Measure Name]) & "YTD").

    This would significantly reduce maintenance and ideally increase performance as well.

  7. Power point

    Embedding interactive (not static! - just as with Excel today) PBI report inside power point is a must for our company and currently what is stopping us from going all over to Power BI in our data preparation, visualization and presentation

  9. Add the ability to Clone Measures

    Often when performance tuning or debugging measures I will create multiple copies of a measure. It would be nice if I could right click on a measure and choose "clone" to get a "measure 2" copy of it where I could edit the expression. For bonus points it would be fantastic if this also worked with Live Connection measures so that I can create a local version of a measure that is a slight variation of one from a Live Connection data set

  10. To enrich the time intelligence functions also by Weeks

    Please enrich the time intelligence functions also by Weeks. So far the time intelligence supports only: Year, Month, Quarter.
    For example SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR refers to the same date from the prevuous year (4.05.2020 which is Monday vs 4.05.2019 which was Saturday) , but I would need to refer to the the same weekday from the pararel week from the previous year, so in this example to 6.05.2019 which was also Monday.
    It is importand that Power BI will help to compare the same week days in the current Year with the same week days in the previous year.

  11. Filter multiple columns in a Table using OR condition

    I want to be able to search and filter using a Value in multiple columns in a Table.

    For example I have an Employee table with columns: FirstName, LastName and EmpID.

    I want to filter this table and display Rows that contain the value "Sam" either in FirstName or LastName column.

    The DAX query in Desktop could be: = if (([FirstName]="Sam" OR [LastName]="Sam"), [EmpID], null)

    This cannot be done from Power BI Service, as we cannot change the value in DAX formula. I cannot filter the table using different values.

  12. 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.

  14. Enable Iterative Calculations

    In Excel, you have the ability to navigate to File/Options/Formulas and "Enable Iterative Calculations". This allows you to run iterative calculations that are "Circular References".

  16. Forecasting Seasonality change for end user

    Hello, I´m posting here this issue because I believe PowerBI have much to learn with Tableau in this way.

    I use Line chart with Forecast Line, but I´m facing one problem here:
    1) The Seasonality is always fixed, so for companies that have only 3 months of data I need to create ONE chart, for companies with 12 months of data I need to create ANOTHER chart, 24 months....48 months... It´s RIDICULOUS. How any developer of Microsoft stopped to think about this.

    2) Every graph shows the whole information, If I select to check the last 12 months and my…

  18. Parameters In Power BI

    Already we have parameters for Data source. It would be great if we have parameters in Power BI Service which allows the user to enter the particular organization value for which they need to see data in the report. I think it would be good to have parameter this would be more efficient than Slicers. And may also improve the data load in reports.

  19. line and column chart with line series

    In the line and column chart, it is not possible to add a line series.

    I can add a column series, but I need two columns/measures to be able to have two lines.
    Then the two columns/measures are displayed in the legend as well.

    It would be great to have the possibility to add a column to create line series like it's possible for the columns in the chart.

    An option to set the line series = column series would be a great addition as well.

  20. Add Contour Diagram option, with Color Gradient and Legend

    by Power BI there is no option of 3D-Plots, for example Contour Diagram.
    This would open new possibilities of business for Power-BI.
