  1. Conditional Formatting for Text

    It would be great to conditional format a table and/or a matrix based on the cell text, not only numbers

  2. Ability to rename items in the Selection Pane

    With the addition of the Selection Pane in the October 2017 release, it would be great to be able to rename these selections so that they are easily manageable.

    If you have multiple objects of the same name, i.e. Image, Text Box, it would be great to rename these (like in PowerPoint) so that you can clearly understand which ones you are hiding or making visible.

  5. Support for importing from PowerPivots shared on O365 or SharePoint

    Importing from Excel currently does not seem to support PowerPivot and requires a local path to the file.

  7. Being able to open reports in BI Designer

    I think we should be able to open reports in BI Designer once they have been imported (or even in Excel). Right now, it's static and can lead to discrepencies between the original report and the one imported in the Dashboard.

  8. open recent reports

    In PBI Designer there is an option to open an existing report. It would be great if this showed you a list of your most recently open reports (i.e. a MRU list). Even better would be if the MRU list synced across devices, just as it does for Excel/Word/PowerPoint these days.
