  1. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. Format of graphs as they transfer from powerview to dashboard

    Color of the graph changes between what is in PowerView and what shows up in dashboard. Please keep all of the formatting

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  14. Improve the usability of Dashboard

    1. Dashboard names are allowed to be the same. In my opinion, they should be unique.

    2. There is no way to reorder the sequence of dashboard names.

    3. As my site content grows, I might have hundreds of dashboards. How do I manage them? The current implementation does not scale up. A folder tree like structure might be a practical solution.

  15. Provide documentation (or a control in PV) to create the tile with the large # in it.

    It's not obvious how to create the tile with the large number in it. (like the first 4 tiles in the sample dashboard)

    If you are a new user, and you don't know/recognize Q&A, you would not know that you have to go to Q&A, ask a question that has a single number for an answer, and pin that answer to your dashboard.

    Either provide documentation. OR better yet,
    Make it possible to create this tile with PV.

  18. Ability to format the values within PowerView

    I would like to be able to format the data in PowerView report, like I can in Excel/PowerView. For example, I have an ID that I would like to get the count of, by default PowerView chooses this as an integer and I cannot change this to be a count unless edit the original Excel file and re-post to PowerBI.
