  2. Enterprise Gateway automatic failover

    I have Enterprise Gateway installed to one of my server and works fine, once our server went down due to h/w issue and we had issues with data refresh, is it possible to install and configure Enterprise Gateway on multiple servers so that in case of such events one of the server is reachable?

  6. Analyze in Excel Standard Pivot Table Aggregations

    The Analyze in Excel feature is an excellent addition to Power BI. For an enhancement, I recommend adding the ability to utilize Excel's standard pivot table functionality of adding implicit measures for numeric fields from source data. This functionality would be similar to the process for creating pivot tables with Power Pivot where custom measures can be used with standard Excel measures in the same pivot table.

    The requirement to create custom measures for simple aggregations (i.e. sum of xx numeric field) removes one of the largest advantages of creating summarizations in Excel. It is also difficult for report developers…

  7. Add ability for Excel workbooks to have a live connection to SSAS

    At this point, only Excel workbooks with a power pivot data model can work in Power BI. It would be great to have the ability to upload Excel workbooks that are connected to our on-prem analysis services to be refreshable as well. The same way that the analysis services connector works for PowerBI reports, perhaps that connector can be extended to uploaded Excel workbooks as well.

  8. To have an "UPDATE NOW" in the App

    It would be really great if in the APP you have an option to "Update now" as you have in the website. Very often I would like to have the latest data, and the only option that I have now it is to go to the website and to do it there, and then check in the App.

  9. add deployment parameters for organizational content packs

    currently it is not possible to create an org content pack once and deploy it on multiple datasources (e.g. dev, test and production)
    it would be great to see the same parameters as in the public packs

  10. Q&A en Español - Consultas en lenguaje Natural

    Q&A es algo increíble! La facilidad con la podemos escribir y hacer las preguntas en un lenguaje natural y obtener las respuestas al instante es simplemente impresionante y único...si hablas inglés y entiendes inglés.

    Lamentablemente, el único idioma soportado en estos momentos es el inglés y es ésta la razón por la cual tenemos esta nueva sugerencia.

    Necesitamos el Q&A o PreguntasyRespuestas totalmente en español! (por favor)

  15. Search my filter values in a dashboard

    I have 40,000 values in some of my core filters. Because the web UI only supports browsing through the filter values, I have to pre-filter each dashboard. I need the same search UI available in Excel filters.

    Thanks for your feedbacks! We understand that advanced filter mode does not fully serve the need. We plan to add the search capability in. Stay tuned.

  17. 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.

    We are planning to ad usage data for the new Power Bi at app.powerbi.com

  19. Need Power BI to support .gov email address

    I have a MSDN account that ends in a .gov. It sure would be nice to be able to evaluate this site, but I currently cannot due to my email account name.
