  1. copy data to clipboard

    Copy Data to Clipboard should be a simple right-click context menu capability --- as it has been in Tableau for years. Often, user wants data being displayed without going through export to CSV and import into Excel. Just simple copy-paste of data out of visual to clipboard to ... whatever intended ... is extremely useful.

  2. Allow 'Edit Interactions' for Filters pane, or add new collapsable "Canvas" pane

    I like the new Filters pane, but I think you really want to think about allowing the same kind of "Edit Interactions" for fields in the Filters pane as you do for any other visual.

    Here's why: I would dearly like to ditch slicers from a report in favour of the Filters pane in order to free up precious screen real-estate, but often slicers are set up so that they only filter *some* things and not others, whereas things in the Filters pane are global, as far as I can tell.

    I was hoping that the filters pane was going…

  3. notification

    Push notifications did not work on the New Workspace preview.
    When I pin a new dashboard in the New Workspace, the app or service did not push any notifications on Power BI, so my colleagues will not know what I've published. Please help to solve this bug. Manually notify them is a stupid action.

  4. Filter Scroll Bar width MUST be Increased

    The width of the Filter Scroll Bar is just too small and makes it very difficult to use. I constantly struggle to "grab" it and move up and down especially with a laptop .
    Please make it BIGGER, thanks

  7. Email Subscription Snapshots Image Quality and Size

    The email subscription feature is great where the user will get the snapshot of the dashboard/report in the email.

    However, I noticed that the image is low quality and appear small in the email content. It will be great if the user is allow set the preferences on the image quality and size in the email content.

    Currently, it's too small and low quality to be really useful, and this is a frequent requests from many of my customers. Though I tell them that it's supported but they are let down later by the usefulness of it due to the…

  9. Dynamic column name update in dashboard/reports

    When ever the field/column name will be changed/updated in the source. The same should be updated automatically with the next refresh in the data model as well as in all the objects we have used in reports/dashboards. This facility is available in QlikView.

  10. Comments and Section Access in PBI App

    Being able to add comments in your reports and dashboards is great on both entire report and visual level. PBI Apps are filtered based on who has access to the app, if @mention has not been granted access to the app, it would be nice for @mention to just receive a snapshot of the visual or report/dashboard concerned and be able to just comment/reply on that and not necessarily be able to see the entire report/dashboard.

  11. Bookmarks on BI Service at Dashboard level

    Loving the new bookmarking feature, however working within an organisation where Power BI has just been introduced the majority of our dashboards are pinned reports to dashboard level. It would be AMAZING if the bookmarks (linked to images) worked on the dashboard level.

    If you can pin an entire report and the interactive visuals work, logic dictates that any image-based bookmarks should also work. Also adding bookmarks to filters would be heaven.

    I appreciate that bookmarks are in preview but would welcome any indication of further bookmark developments?

  12. Automatic update of Pinned Live Pages

    A dashboard that is based on a pinned live page is not automatically updated when the dataset is updated.

    Automatic update of Pinned Live Pages should be implemented as a feature.

  13. Ability to adjust column width for column charts with continuous x-axis

    When using a continuous X axis, one cannot modify the column's width. If the series used has a value for each hour, the columns can be super thin.

    Please add a setting for modifying the column's width or inner padding, for column charts that have a continuous x-axis.

    It would be so useful having an option to make visibility of an object conditional.

  15. Button that updates datasets and dashboard

    We'd like to have a button that you can put on your dashboard in order to trigger a dataset/dashboard refresh. That way we can always work with the latest data.
    We have configured the scheduled update but it is not quite working out for us.
    Thank you!

  16. Filter type

    Include the Filter type to the new filter that introduced in November 2018 update. So the report can be displayed in date that pre-filtered in the 'Relative date filtering', and the report users can also have the option to use the 'Advanced filtering' to see information in specified period.

  17. Navigation and Action Button

    Navigation and Action Button
    It would be useful to have button that navigates to another sheet or website.
    The navigation button is useful when you want to provide customized navigation options, for example, if you want to go to another sheet and clear all selections.
    The button should have the possibility of add one or more actions that will be executed before navigation.
    1) Possible Navigation could be :
    • None: no navigation action is performed when clicking the button, but you can add another basic action.
    • Go to first sheet: open the first sheet of the app.
    •…

  18. Drill through column for Tables

    It would be very nice if we could add a button- or linkcolumn on a table to drill through the data row. Would be more intuitive for people then right-clicking.
