  4. More insights required when loading a query

    Please download this .pbix: http://1drv.ms/19kbMxs, open it and try and load data into the reports (you will need to create a data source setting for http://sqlblog.com in order to do so). It takes quite a long time to run so please be patient.
    The query attempts to load data from http://sqlblog.com, it does so by getting a list of bloggers from this blogging site, then iterating over them and requesting more information from the site for each one.

    Notice that the last step in the query adds a field called "YearMonth". With this step as part of the…

  7. NoSQL - CouchDB ( Cloudant, IRISCouch, etc) Datasources

    It would be nice to connect to the cloud based nosql data stores like IBM Cloudant or IRISCouch, etc. IBM already has a dashboard and allows you to create a warehouse but I highly doubt that it is going to match any PowerBI capabilities.

  8. include a load to button under the query name in the power query editor

    Inside the Power Query editor window, it would be nice to have a load to button next to it, instead of having to mouse over to the left most of the screen on top to load the data.

  9. Automate Dashboard Homepage

    I have a dashboard on which I show some values and metrics regarding specific customers.
    I have scheduled and automatic data refresh from a blob: once a day we refresh our data. If a new customer comes up in our data (from our table in the blob) would be possible to automatically make it showing up also on the dashboard (without any need to manually pin the value and the graph from the report to the dashboard)?

  10. Socrata

    Lots of governments use Socrata to post open data. Connecting PowerBI to Socrata would offer a large installed base of live datasets. Their service is OData compatible, and works well.

  19. Region maps within Power BI

    The PowerView dashboard will become more robust when it is possible to have regions integrated into the maps (such as country/City/Zipcode/County etc.). In the Power BI designer Preview it seems that the first step has been taken to build this functionality and further development of this feature would be a great. Seeing the filters/slicers work directly on an interactive map (that are not just bubbles but can actually represent a geographical location) is a very powerful visual tool.

    Hi Thomas, I think you’re asking for a feature that already exists. You can use the ‘Filled Map’ visualization type in both the Designer and on the web. They’re fully interactive and filters/slicers work with them.

    The only limitation is that you can’t pin them to the dashboard – is this your request? We are working on that!

  20. Resource to monitor performance for the SSAS Connector en power BI

    Power BI need some dashboard for the ssas connector for measures aspects like time response , traffic , etc. this dashbaord is for the administrator or owner of the data source. Like the monitoring that actual power bi on office 365 have right now.
