  1. Ability to maximise a dashboard on screen, ie temporarily hide top black bar, Q&A box, and fit remainder to screen

    Ideally with ability to zoom into specific areas a bit lik you can do in powerpoint presentation mode

  2. How can I change the unit of the result in Dashboard?

    I would want to show the exact number down to single digit and not rounded to millions. As finance, more often than not we'd want to show accurate numbers. If there is way for us to specify the unit to use, it'd be even better!

  7. Scrolling in graphs in dashboard tiles

    Currently, visualisations do not scroll vertically when in graph mode so data that does not fit in the predetermined tile sizes gets cut off. However, in table mode this works well. The capability to scroll vertically (and horizontally for that matter) in graphs should be developed.

    Hi everyone. There’s a really great Solution Template that was recently launched which uses Cortana Intelligence and other Azure services to analyse particular tweets, hashtags etc. and then visualizes it in Power BI

    https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/twitter-solution-template/

    It’s really simple to get started, and will provision all the right dbs, connectors etc. into your own Azure account.

    Thanks!

  9. Scheduled refresh, so that we can test and use in real scenarios

    I realize this is something you're working on. I just point out our testing and usage scenarios are going to be pretty limited until scheduled refresh makes building a dashboard more worthwhile - even for the short term.

  12. The Title of Dashboard should stand out, just not turn green

    The title of the Dashboard should get highlighted on click in such a manner that it really stands out as too many links on top might create confusion as to which report is being presented.

  13. support no calc on numeric values

    Selecting a numeric value for a report, it defaults to Sum. It allows for changing to Average, Count, Min, Max... it should also support No calculation or as a value only.

  14. Remove or edit Connections.

    I think it is necessary to be able to remove or edit connections.If I upload, by mistake, a wrong workbook, I can't remove it.

  15. Sharing role-specific data in Dashboards

    For those I've shared my dashboard to, allow them to only see the data in the dashboard they should see, not my data.

  17. Add the ability to Hide Reports on the Left Pane

    Can you add the ability for us to hide the reports or connects that are listed on the left pane of the Dashboard to give back real estate and make it look cleaner.
