  1. R Script in Power BI Report Server

    Enable R Script in Power BI Report Server - In the manufacturing environment quality tools are essential, specific S.P.C. (Statistical Process Control). So, for example Quality Control Charts library help us with statistical data analysis in Power BI Desktop, but in Report Services R Script is not enabled. This is an incredible opportunity to delivery assertive information to data customers make their quick decisions based on Power BI RS. In the other post R Visual is not planned, but think fondly in this possibility!

  2. Hide Filters pane on Power BI Report Server

    Is there any possiblity to hide Filters pane in Power BI Report server. We don't want to show the filters been used to external clients in our report for unnecessary discussion on calls.

    Something like &filterPaneEnabled=false in Power BI Report Server

  3. Add an interface in Power BI Reports for browsing shared datasets on the Report Server.

    A current capability we use in Power BI Reports on our Power BI Report Server is consuming Shared Datasets that are already on the server. We should have a "Shared Dataset" connector option in Power BI Optimized for Report Server that helps users identify which Shared Dataset are available on the server and the parameters(if any) are required to use the shared dataset. This would be a similar capability that exists in Report Builder when adding shared datasets.

    This could be a simple UI that ultimately results in an OData source using the PBI REST API. This would simplify adding…

  5. Increase the data export row limit (30,000 rows max) in Power BI Report Server

    The capability to export raw data from Power BI is an important function for many users.

    Presently, the export data limits are as follows and confirmed at the community link below.

    - Power BI Service (cloud platform): 150,000 row maximum
    - Power BI Report Server (on-premise platform): 30,000 row maximum

    Please increase the export limit setting on Report Server to match that of Service. Better yet, increase them both to a much higher limit as requested by others in separate idea posts.

  6. PBIRS full screen button

    Could a full screen button be added to PowerBI Report Server? Possibly to the far right of the status bar where the page tabs appear.

  8. Support for Azure SQL database or Managed instance

    It would be great if the catalog databases: ReportServer and ReportServerTempdb (not the SSRS service itself). could be deployed to either Azure SQL Managed Instance or SQL Database.

  9. Shape Map visualization for Power BI Report Server

    Bring the shape map that has been in Power BI preview for years into the Power BI Report Server. Preview features are not available in Power BI Report Server so on-premise only users cannot use shape maps and are stuck with bing maps. This makes Power BI on premise extremely limiting.

  10. Edit Reports in Power BI Report Server

    Are there any plans to allow the creation or editing of reports directly in the browser instead of using the desktop client? This would allow the use as a self-service tool.

  11. Home (Preview) or Custom Landing Page

    It would be nice that there is an option to set the new Home or other page chosen by the users to be the default landing page when opens Power BI.

    By now when I sign in Power BI the first page I see is "My Workspace" or a featured dashboard. It would be better if the user can chose what to see first.

  13. Power BI Report Server Auto Refresh

    Add a setting on power BI report server to enable report to auto refresh and display fullscreen.
    As well as a setting to hide all tool bars so that extensions do not need to be added into url.

  14. Persistent Filters

    In our Report Server deployment the most frequent request by end users is: “Give me a prefiltered (eg. by departement) version of the standard report so that I will not have to spend time on filtrering” - the request is valid - but with more than 100 departments maintaining such a setup becomes extremely time consuming - therefore I suggest bringing Persistent Filters to Report Server - it would dramatically reduce the time needed to maintian a enterprise
    scale BI deployment - and would be a kikker-feature for Power BI Report Server (and align features beteeen cloud and on-prem)
    Filters…

  18. Printing Report as PDF file ability not only for designer users but also for all browser users

    A published report can only be printed by the report server browser users, however saving the report as PDF document would be a lot userfriendly and practical
