  1. Analyze which visuals are used across your organization from an admin perspective

    It would be very useful to have an admin overview to see which visuals are used in reports across your organization. Especially for custom visuals to see if these visuals are certified, uncertified or organizational allowed visuals.

    These insights can be used from an admin perspective to analyze the impact before disabling custom visuals on tenant level.

  2. Enable/Disable export to PDF, PPT and printing functionality by workspace or by report. Rather than at tenant level.

    Some datasets and analyses are too sensitive to even allow export to PDF, PPT and printing. But at the moment this option is only available to alter at the tenant level. It would be better to have it either at workspace level, or better, at report level in the same way as data exports are set at report level.

  3. Allow subscriptions to personal bookmarks

    Please add the ability to subscribe to personal bookmarks. The "Subscribe" feature currently sends a snapshot of the default view with no ability to customize filters in the subscription.

    The recent addition of personal bookmarks allows our users to customize reports as needed, and they have been asking for a way to get these personalized bookmark views sent by email. If you could extend the personal bookmarks to the subscription options that would be very helpful.

  6. The ability to message all Power BI users from the Power BI service

    If you run a Power BI platform for a lot of users you should be able to send /push notifications to them. We are currently experiencing high fail rates and it would be great to alert all users that we're busy looking into it.

  7. Disable or prevent Teams from autocreating App Workspace

    Please introduce a global setting to Prevent Teams from creating PowerBi App Workspace automatically when creating a new Team. As the new Workspaces are detached from Teams/Groups this should be a setting to prevent the App Workspaces beeing clotted with empty Workspaces from all our Teams.

  8. Change the fact that workspace App updates cause restore of reshare permissions for underlying datrasets

    After a workspace App being updated, the reshare permissions are restored for a dataset, despite having these been previously removed. This behaviour supposes a security risk as it limits control on users resharing reports.

  9. Add a way to organize and categorize Apps

    We really need a better way to organize and categorize PBI Apps. Larger enterprises have many variants of Apps from those containing high quality reports for decision makers to the self-service ad-hoc reports with less quality requirements. Please add ways for the admin to f.ex. create groups or tags to seperate various "types" of Apps. I really like the functionality for certified datasets so maybe a similar feature could also be added for Apps as a sort of "Mark of quality". This again would have to be made available to a select group of users or groups so the admin…

  10. Admin Subscription Management Feature

    Must have a method for admins of workspaces to manage and maintain subscriptions created by other users. If a user leaves, there is no way to alter a subscription they created, such as add or remove individuals from a distribution list.
    What happens when someone leaves and no one can alter subscriptions they created? We'll have some annoyed users if they no longer want a report showing up in their inbox.

  11. History of y Take over user in Power BI Workspace

    We need to have UI feature to easily navigate and verify the user who has taken over the dataset in the workspace.

    Take over history will be good to see in the workspace itself. that will help admin of the workspace who has been playing around with existing code/dataset.

  12. Expose Analysis Services perspective

    Provide visibility in the Power BI service when a live connection to Analysis Services is connected to a perspective rather than Model.

    When we look at settings for a live connection dataset in PowerBI.com, we can see the server and database in the data source credentials, but there is no indication of whether we are connecting to Model or a perspective. If we download the PBIX file, unzip it and look in the Connections file, we can see "CUBE=<PerspectiveName>" in the connection string, but that is the only place to view it. Perspective is not available via the REST APIs…

  13. Subscribe others to emails for reports or dashboards that have RLS

    Power BI now allows users to subscribe others to emails for reports and dashboards. However, if RLS is applied to the dataset this is not possible. This idea will remove this restriction.

  14. Power Platform Admin Portal

    Allow the Power BI admin role to access the Power Platform admin portal. This will allow the Power BI admin to see all data gateways used in an organization.

  15. When Publishing an App using a Shared Dataset then Permissions must currently be manually added to the Dataset - can this be automated

    When an App is Published that is using a Shared Dataset (i.e. the reports use a dataset from a different workspace) then the permissions on the dataset are NOT updated in the same way that the Dataset permissions are updated if it is not shared (i.e. the reports use a dataset in the same workspace).

    I have raised a service call (119101822000424) and been told this behaviour is by design.

    Can we either change this so that the permissions are updated (preferred approach) or at least put a warning up when publishing the App to say the dataset permissions need…

  16. REST API to View/Set user permissions

    There is currently a REST API that refreshes user permissions but not one that retrieves existing user permissions against a PBI artifact. Extending it to include adding a user and viewing / setting permissions would be a great addition.

    I can see a need where a customer would want an admin report the lists also user and their associated permissions for a PBI artifact such as a dataset or report.

    I can also see a need where we might want to add multiple users and give them permissions to an artifact.

  17. Use all kinds of groups for all types of permissions

    Currently, all the different types of groups - Security Groups (mail enabled and non-mail enabled), Distribution Lists, O365 groups - can be used in different places to provide permissions.

    For example, you can use O365 groups in workspace and app permissions, but can't use them in the share button, for dataset permissions and RLS role membership. Similarly, you can use AD security groups for everything EXCEPT data source users on gateway connections.

    This creates a lot of confusion for admins and workspace owners and requires us to use multiple groups for different things. Ideally, we'd be able to use all…

  18. A too/feature is needed to convert classic workspace to new workspace

    The new workspace has been the default workspace type. However, currently there is no way to convert a classic workspace to new workspace. A tool or feature is needed to do this job. We have many classic workspaces, and we wish to convert them to new work spaces.

  19. Add back "next refresh" info for dataset in the New Look

    In the New Look that was made available recently, it no longer shows "next refresh schedule" for each dataset, unlike the old look.  This missing info makes it cumbersome to identify which dataset is under automatic scheduled refresh, and when the next refresh will take place.  Pls add this info/column back in the new look as well.

  20. Dev Test/QA and Production Workspaces

    I'm thinking in terms of a more advanced power BI Structure

    Imagine you have an App Workspace Called HR dev

    And and App Workspace called HR test.

    I want to be able to copy everything into the HR Test workspace (Overwriting what is in there already)

    I understand you can do somethings with powershell but is there anything to make this process easier?

    Ive seen alot of information about how this kind of environment can be set up but nothing about the specifics. Annoyingly you cant do this manually because you cant move a dashboard.

    This would also feed in…
