  2. DB connection was disconnected when we have connected Amazon Redshift from PowerBI Desingner with ODBC.

    We have a problem.

    DB connection was disconnected when
    we have connected Amazon Redshift from PowerBI Desingner with ODBC.

    The data-volume is like this:
    Record count: about 50million
    Column count: 35
    data size of one record: about 1K bytes

    We operated the Power BI Desingner as follows.

    ・Run PowerBI Desingner,
    ・Choose [Get Data]
    ・Choose [ODBC]
    ・Choose [My-Redshift-Setting]
    ・Load(Query1)
    ・(We waited about 70mins.)
    ・The process have succeeded,and App change at Query-Tab(Left side bar).
    ・Then, we could see the the first of about 100 records data
    (We are not sure whether we could see all data or not)

    The problem starts from…

  4. Office 365 SharePoint Online usage statistics

    We use SharePoint Online as a learning environment and we would like to do big data "learning analytics" on the students usage of Office 365 and SharePoint Online in particular. Examples of data would be number of logins per user, how active a student is in a specific site ie usage of Newsfeed or Yammer, "time spent" in Office365 and per specific site etc

  7. Collaborate MD

    The Billing software that our corporation uses is Collaborate MD. It has the ability the export data in Excel, CSV, or Text formats. It would be beneficial and more time efficient if the data could be uploaded directly.

  9. Ingesting csv data with double-byte

    In this state and age, csv data with double-byte is not uncommon. However, I just don't understand why is it so difficult for Excel to read the data properly. I can even use my vi editor (on windows) to open the files and see all double-byte characters displayed properly (Chinese, Japanese, even Russian). vi.exe on cygwin, windows 10. Please fix the double byte issue on the PowerBI/Excel character processing engine.

  10. UI feedback: Improve the download button

    The download button for downloading the tools looks like it's going to download the current dashboard or something. It took me a few minutes of looking for the Designer download before I decided to try clicking the download button.

  15. Application Insights

    Would be good to have information from AppInsights available as data source to enable analysis of application use based on various data sources - something coming via AppInsights, something coming from application audit logs, user profile database (custom SQL DB), something from CRM where additional customer info might be stored etc.

  16. Migrating dashboards

    My team has built some dashboards that reside in our Power BI Sharepoint site? I can not find any clear documentation explaining how to migrate these to PowerBI.com? Does my team have to completely rebuild these dashboards in PowerBI.com?

  19. Twitter Widget Tile

    Allow creation of a tile that integrates the official twitter widget code that can be found at https://twitter.com/settings/widgets (have to be logged in to create one). This would allow a real-time updating feed of tweets about your product to be displayed on your dashboard, bringing the customer's voice straight to you.

  20. Better visibility for menu at left

    Having the ability to adjust the font of the left menu would be very helpful. At present, the gray-on-gray default setting can be difficult to read for a number of users. The option to use a more high-contrast color scheme would be great.
