  1. 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.

  3. Pareto chart for Key Influencers visual insights

    The Key Influencers visual is a useful and interactive way to understand the most important factors for a given outcome. However, most people are more familiar viewing this type of insight via a pareto chart. Is there a way to create a pareto chart based on an outcome of the Key Influencers visual? (This could be via tooltip or some other mechanism)

  5. 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…

  6. Add Azure Cognitive services Text Analytics - Extract key Phrases and Score Sentiment ) to power BI PRO

    It's cool that these are now available as part of Power BI Premium but for small to mid size company the cost does not justify the jump to Premium and spinning up Azure Cognitive Services requires too much red tape to jam though IT.

  7. AI Categorization of Fields

    Use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to lump several highly similar strings into categories.

    As an example, suppose we have a field named Product that contains the following values: (Microphone; Desk; Microphone with Desk Stand; MicroPhonE; Mycrophone; Apple; Granny Smith Apple; Cannon Printer; CaNNNNon, 2020 Honda Odyssey [Free Vacation Package with Purchase]; Apple Tree ). I would then expect Power BI to be trainable so it could make the following categorizations: (Microphone -> Electronics; Desk -> Furniture; Microphone with Desk Stand -> Electronics; MicroPhonE -> Electronics; Mycrophone -> Electronics; Apple -> Grocery; Granny Smith Apple -> Grocery; Cannon Printer -> Electronics; CaNNNNon…

  8. Allow the Key Influencers and Segments viz to filter the page

    Hi Guys,

    I've only started using the Key Influencers viz and I find it quite useful. It would be great if you could Edit Interactions and be able to filter the other viz's based on the elements within this vis. Imagine if a Segment indicates multiple criteria and when you click on the segment it would apply them simultaneously on the whole page it would be an amazing feature to have.

  9. AutoML on Power BI Data Model

    For some reason, we are not seeing ML being adopted quickly at DAX level. But ML in DAX will be very powerful that is currently a significant gap in Power BI.

  12. Forecast in Bar, Combo, Table visual with ability to apply/change algorithms

    Currently, POWER BI has very limited capability to forecast (only in line chart, Analyze tab option), where the options look great but nothing can be exported to a excel or a table visual. Can we have the forecasting capability for other important visuals such as Bar chart, Combo chart (will be very helpful to forecast Covid-19 cases with daily cases vs total cases). Most important, would be to view the forecasted values in a table and export to excel. I understand it may be too much to ask for but at-least this cannot be ignored as well!

  13. Creating Machine Learning models in Power BI Good If its also Provides Free Version or Trial Basis.

    On my views if Microsoft will plan to provide Machine Learning with Power BI in Free or trial mode like as Power BI Desktop then its real time needs may be understand everyone because for the this great feature of AutoML some of small companies as well as trainer or Data Analyst easily go through this ML and inhance more better in pratical way.

  14. Alert that triggers when metric / KPI or subset changes by an unusual amount

    It would be hugely impactful if you could analytically figure out and be alerted when a KPI is influenced by a large change in a portion of underlying data. Imagine a Average Customer Satisfaction score that is the holistic KPI, but you want to be alerted if a specific subset of that (ie from a certain country or other grouping) has dropped below/above that value by certain margin / significant amount.

  15. Dynamic Parameters for API-Calls in PBI Service

    It should be possible to control parameter values from within a published report on PBI Service and use these parameters as url-parameters for a web API-call. The parameterized
    API-call should be executed automatically on every parameter change and values from the api response should be available within the report. We need this option, to flexibly provide data to power bi report consumers, that is calculated using machine learning on very large datasets. This would enable PowerBI for use in predictive analytics.

  16. Power BI - requirement for H2O library within R and Python

    Hello,

    I am writing regarding the Power BI supported libraries within R.

    There is an issue that I have created a prediction model in R with H2O library.

    Unfortunately, Power BI does not support this library.

    Could you please confirm when it is be possible to acquire support of H2O library within R in Power BI?

    Thank you in advance!

  17. Add a "Show Me" button

    You do an awesome job at describing HOW to do something. At the end of the description, add a "Show Me" button.

  18. Enable regularized regression for key influencers

    Support for LASSO, Ridge, and elasticnet regression would be great to not have to worry about multicollinearity.

    This would also help non-statistical user confusion when coefficient signs flip unexpectedly based on correlated predictors.

  20. key influencers on aggregate data

    On the new Key Influencers visual (awesome addition btw) adding a "weight by" field for pre-aggregated data would be useful for analyzing very large datasets
