  1. Machine Learning Models for Pro Users

    Please extend Machine Learning capabilities to pro users. Small to Medium sized business may not have the employee count to justify enterprise licenses, but we can still benefit from general capability advancements in the Power BI service/product offering.
    See original blog post here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/creating-machine-learning-models-in-power-bi/?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTkRFMlkySTBOR05oWVRGbSIsInQiOiJMRVVibGxBRDV3XC91SVpMeE4rSFV0THJKTnlLU3k5dXZ4bFhXdzh0VFh2ckE4RURRXC92R2FLY2F0TWtOSDhxMm9raVViU2lpdGQ4XC9WaWhzNGdCTHlqMUIrVGFibUJ2TkJ0SFdDUWR2QWY1OFhNOEowaGVXY1FxOXZydjhvcXZONHE0cjNQb0lEdnN2blFjMXVhY0hjcXc9PSJ9

  2. Please extend Dataflows and Machine Learning capabilities to Free users

    Please extend Dataflows and ML capabilities to Free users (of course limiting the processing power/storage). This would be great for learning purposes and would also help a lot in making these PBI tools more popular and increase the adoption.

  4. Key Influencers over time

    Key Influencers evolution over time.
    The new Key Influencers visual does a nice job to understand the contribution of different factors in a given population. If the evaluation is performed over a given period, it is likely that some factors produce a different influence over time, i.e. the mix of factors/influencers tends to be more dynamic than static over time. For example, in a mix of products at different stages of their lifecycle, it is not uncommon to see new products behaving differently to products that initiate their decline. In other cases, some factors have a significant influence triggered by…

  5. key influencer with live connected data

    currently the visual only support imported data. Would be great if it can support live connection

  6. Integration of Microsoft .NET ML (Machine Learning) with Power BI

    Similar to R integration in Power BI, it will so important for C# developers to use the newly emerging open-source .NET ML (Machine Learning) https://github.com/dotnet/machinelearning within Power BI.

    Check the Roadmap of this library at https://github.com/dotnet/machinelearning/blob/master/ROADMAP.md
    - Binary classification
    - Multiclass classification
    - Regression
    - Clustering
    - Anomaly detection (coming soon)
    - Ranking (coming soon)
    - Recommendation (coming soon)

    Power BI ♥ ML

  7. When "Customizing Input Fields", to be able to select distinct values of a field.

    I think it would be a significant improvement when creating a Machine Learning Model (for an Entity), if it would be possible when "Customizing Input Fields", not only to select fields, but also be able to select one or more values among the distinct values (if there are any) of one or more fields. Maybe that also should be possible to do for (one or more) of the "Historical Outcome Field(s)".

    The situation I am in now is that I probably have to make one separate "Entity" (and a "Machine Learning Model") for each distinct value (about 20 of them…)…

  8. Add Regression Equation and R2 to Key Influencers

    Would be nice to see the equation for each key influencer and to see how well the model fits the data with the R squared

  9. Time-glass for status when calibrating the ML-model

    When I calibrate an ML model, I just have a grey symbol saying that a report will be made when calibration is ready, and at the same time I have a status stated as ready. Would it be possible to have a e.g. time-glass or a guiding text to better explain the status (as discussed with you Martin Blix)?

  10. Direct connection with Azure ML models

    Hi

    I want to easily connect Azure ML models into power BI and make it possible to turn every independent variables into a slider that by default get the avg value of the series and the boundaries min and max, with this feature the end user could quickly change the inputs and see the direct response with the forecast from model in an intuitive way.

  11. Add labels to Key Influencers

    1. Add data labels to Key Influencers so we can see which data points are the outliers.

    Currently, the only way to know is to filter categories out, or to do a scatter plot of the 2 variables under consideration. Not practical when having many key influencers.

    2. Add color and size options for the graphical view of the influencers, similar to the Scatter Plot visual

    -OR-

    2. Add the ML capability to show clusters in the data, in addition with the awesome decision tree for the top segments.

  12. Optionally show the key influencers impact per unit

    The key influencers show how much they go up and down, impacting a certain amount of the dependent variable.

    Why are the key influencers showing always a specific value rather than the unit?

    For example, if I want to know if renewable energy installation goes up with the number of policies, it shows that 0.## policies drive an increase of ### in installed capacity.

    It would be nice to have the option to see how much is the influence of 1 policy.

  13. Machine Learning Quality Check

    Power BI has a variety of easy, built-in ML models/algorithms in desktop, sever, and Q&A. Can we get some simple built in quality check pop-ups? Something like a ROC curve with a Thumbs-up/Thumbs-down symbol or a note that says "Hey, this model fit 100% of your data points. It's probably over-fitting."

  15. Analyse Options

    Hi,

    When I right click on a line chart, it shows Analyze and further shows explain the increase/ decrease. This is excellent.

    My idea is that when we further click on explain the increase/ decrease, it should show the analyze should be based on last period or same period last year or any specific period.

    Hopeful, the concern of BI team will review my idea and work on it.

    Regards,

    Jamal Qamar

  16. Disregard (or weight down) "key influencers"" with a very small number of records

    With the new key influencers visual, it's common for it to identify key influencers where the number of records described are only 1 or 2 (for example, "finish type quit is 11x more likely in Hanover, Maryland" when there was only one finish in Hanover Maryland and it was a quit). My idea would be to assign a weight based on number of records and adjust the influencers toward the overall population mean the lower below a threshold (30 records?) the number of records involved is.

  18. Use Correlation Algorithms to Avoid AutoML Picking Inappropriate Features

    Please run a correlation algorithm (or improve the existing), so that features that are correlated with the label are not suggested. Otherwise, "business analysts" will create models that are not useful and this would degrade the value of the excellent job done on Automated ML in PBI.

    The general advertisement is that the Auto ML is designed for "business analysts to build machine learning models". However, in some situations there could be realistic problems, unless someone is having a data science background.

    Here is the case:

    Use the Power BI sample projects (Supplier Quality Analysis Sample)
    Extend the metrics query…

  20. Don't use non-certified custom visuals in ML performance reports

    My organization has blocked the use of non certified custom visuals in our tenant and the ML performance report leverage them significantly. Please only use certified custom visuals in reports that are auto-generated
