  2. Create Multiple Apps per Workspace

    Recreating this idea, since the previous version seems to have been deleted.

    One app per workspace is extremely limiting in large organizations, where many different subsets of reports need to be shared with different users. One example: I have a collection of reports in an app. All need to be shared with management, but only some should be visible to non management. Currently, I would have to create multiple workspaces with duplicate reports to accomplish this. Using datasets across multiple workspaces does NOT fill this use case. An alternate solution might be to allow access restrictions for each report included…

  3. Deployment pipelines to support dataflows

    Deployment pipelines do not currently support Dataflows. In our organisation, we want to carefully govern a particular workspace which will contain the common dataflows which people want to use in many reports (e.g. a dates table, a list of active employees (GDPR permitting, etc).

    Deployment pipelines will enable us to put the right governance in place for Dataflows.

    Thank you for your feedback!
    We highly appreciate you taking the time and letting us know what’s missing.
    this feature is a known gap and it is part of our backlog to complete.
    I will update here when work will start.

  4. Microsoft Learn Sandbox for Power BI Premium

    I am currently using Microsoft Learn for Azure and Microsoft Offers a Sandbox environment in which you can perform exercises using Azure services for free.

    I would like to suggest a similar 'sandbox' for Power BI Premium. This way developers can learn the capabilities in order to either;
    - as a employee assess whether Premium fits the company's needs and prepare themselves for utilizing it.
    - as a consultant gain the skills to advice and implement a Power BI Premium solution to customers.

    A sandbox would be the bare minimum to achieve that. Even better would be a full operational…

  5. Deployment Pipelines: Let all owners deploy datasets

    We ran into issues when trying to deploy dataset changes from test to production in the deployment pipeline (the error: got stuck with an endless "deployment in progress" animation and deployment never finished. Using Fiddler I could record a "NotTargetDatasetsOwner" error).

    Feedback from Microsoft support concludes that it has to be the same account that has configured the dataset in the Power BI service that deploys the dataset from test to production.

    This is a major limitation to our way of working since we are a team collaborating and evolving datasets over time. I suggest that all users that have…

  6. Option to change the 30 day "soft delete" grace period to 60 days on Premium Workspaces

    We need the "soft delete" grace period extended to at least 60 days on Premium Workspaces.

    It would be nice if this was a configurable setting.

  7. Dataset refresh should be dependent on Successful Dataflow refresh

    Dataset refresh should be dependent on Successful Dataflow refresh because if the Dataflow refresh is failed due to dependencies, Dataset Refresh is success without any data in it.

  8. Premium with E5

    Microsoft sell E5 licences as enterprise ready but the bundled Power BI Pro is not an enterprise product. There are so many features only available with a premium licence that even with an E5 licence an organisation would need to buy aditional premium licences to actually deploy Power BI as an enterprise product.

  9. Capacity Refresh Schedule Export

    Please add an export option to the Capacity Settings Refresh Schedule from the Admin portal menu.

    Currently a scheduled refresh time can be selected and a detail window displays everything that is scheduled during that time. We would like to be able to export the list posted in this window.

  10. History for Pipeline Useage

    It would be really useful if You could get our reporting against the History of Pipeline useage

    For example Date of Deployment to Test?, Who Deployed? What items were deployed? New, Amended deleted?

    Date of Deployment to Production, Who Deployed? What items were deployed? New, Amended deleted?

    That would be so useful to be able get the history of what was going on within the pipeline

  11. Please provide a new way to add up memory to the existing SKU

    Please provide a new way to add up memory to the existing SKU.
    Upgrading to a different SKU is very expensive. We just need memory to upload pbix report to Power BI Service without all other advantages by upgrading the SKU. There should be a way to increase memory without a need to upgrading the SKU which is highly expensive.

    Also, request to reduce the pricing of the SKU.

  12. Requirement to create child datasets from a master dataset already present in Service.

    Intention: The primary intention is also to see how we can pass on the changes to child datasets created out of one primary dataset. This would make maintenance easier and one does not need to create datasets from scratch and assign to specific user groups.

    Use Case:
    For certain users, only certain dimensions of star schema must be available. The general knowledge is that we have to create 2 independent datasets and assign it to user groups. In this case, the maintenance becomes difficult as we have to update both the datasets for a change. If the dataset can be…

  13. Enable subreports in Power BI Report Builder

    Enable subreports in Power BI Report Builder. Currently, subreports functionality is not enable for Paginated reports in the Power BI Service. This is a common request from our users to design reports that emulate the subreporting functionality they are used to in SSRS

  15. Enable persistent filters across PowerBI App

    When building a PowerBI App, many reports may use the exact same data source and/or naming convention. As users consume the reports and apply filters either via slicers or filters, these changes do not carry over when a user selects another report within the same workspace App.

    Currently, when switching from one report to another report within the same App, users are required to apply / reapply these filter criteria.

    From a user experience stand-point, it would be great to implement persistent filters that continuously apply across multiple reports within an App. In this way, if there are say 10…

  16. Create a new Power BI version between Pro and Premiu

    Create a ‘Premium’ light for smaller companies- for whom the $60k is too high if you have fewer users.

    There’s lots of companies that can’t take advantage of the many Premium features- not because they don’t want to pay - but because they are just smaller companies.

    Hope Microsoft can provide full functionality for smaller companies.

  17. Adjust paramater display size

    The parameter width is fine when viewed in Power BI report builder, but when saved to the power bi service, the parameter width is very small. When looking through many options there is a tool tip, but it would be nice adjust the viewable width of the parameters.
