  1. Allow me to change the label on pinned questions from Q&A

    Typically in a dataset I will want to pin a few totals, averages or so on based on a particular category (these are KPI type metrics that would show a single number on a pinned item, not a chart), For instance if I am looking at 2 major regions I would like to be able to pin a Q&A question like "total revenue for the region west" along with "total revenue for the region east" both to my dashboard. If you do this now they both have the same name of "Total of Revenue", which is very confusing, since they…

  2. Have the ability to hide legend header in charts

    Sometimes legend doesn't need a header; the series names are self-explanatory. Can we have an option to hide the legend header? Or customize it (so we can delete the header or change it to something more meaningful)?

  4. Support cration of iPad/iPhone specific dashboard layout

    So, on my laptop, I have my laptop view and sort order. On my iPad, I have my iPad view and sort order.

    Since these two devices are different size and I use them differently, I'll want to view my data differently on them.

  6. 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!

  11. 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!

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
