  1. Add View Selector dropdown for Reports

    Add a dropdown to allow users to switch between report views. The dropdown would include options to view a report by different dimensions. For example, a Revenue report could have options to View By: Customer, Salesperson, or Product

  2. Allows selection on which slicers can modify the graph(s) content

    When you have a slicer and graph(s) (any kinde) on the report page, the selection of values on the slicer will modify the value of the graph(s).

    It should be possible to select if those slicer can modify all the graphs or just the desired graphs

  3. Add/remove/update measures, datasources, and columns after publishing .pbix file to PowerBI cloud

    I would like to add/remove/update measures, datasources, and columns after publishing the model to PBI cloud. I cannot easily re-upload the PBIX file because there were other reports created off of the dataset than exist in the .pbix file. Also, what if users created their own reports/dashboards based on the dataset. If you remove to upload a new one with the new calcs/measures then you will remove their personalized reports/dashboards.

    This makes it a major hassle to go back and edit the data model of an already uploaded dataset. Allow me to enter PBI designer somehow through the cloud, or…

  4. Function for easy and fast accumulation of values

    Add a visual or a function to automatically show values accumulated without building new complex formulas.

    (with data that has more then 3 Mio. rows accumulation formulas get problems)

  5. Plotting percentages in visuals without aggregating/summarizing them

    I would like to be able to compare percentages on charts in the way that was possible in Excel. At the moment it only shows the count of the percentages which is not so useful to me.

  8. Switch between views in the same tile

    It would be nice to be able to have for example a line chart, and with one click in the upper right corner to switch it to bar chart, or even more important, if I want to see the data behind, to switch into pivot table or at least a table.

    We could specify, when we are creating a tile, if we want to make available other views too, to be switched into.

  9. Make the Advance T-SQL Window Larger

    We do a lot of T-SQL and we don’t allow our non-IT employees to have MS Studio, so when building a T-SQL Statement in the PQ, it would be nice to have a larger window to type instead of the small area that is given.

  10. rename field for non english users

    For non English users (and maybe also for them..), we need the ability to change the field name in the report layer without changing it in the data model (just like in excel, when user can customize field name without overriding the data model).
    currently the only way to do it is to change the actual field name in the data model, and it is usually not easy to maintain a non english model.

  11. A Slicer for multiple queries

    Hi. When I have graphics with diferentes queries its necesary to have a Slicer for multiple queries to avoid repeat the slicer for each query in screen when the field is the same. For example: in page with 2 graphics: one of sales with a query of sales and other of purches with a query of purches sharing a unique slicer (of a field call period, client, category, etc.) to select the value and redrawing both graphics for this value.

  12. RLS Feature Back To FULL Function For All Power BI Users

    Would be great for this feature to be back to use for all users. After using RLS since December (and it being a standard feature even for free account viewers) and building a fairly large selection of dashboards with the feature now to have to spend upward of next 30 days replicating dashboards without the RLS feature but limits a viewer to their market is going to cost a substantial amount of time and money.

  13. Using "Edit Parameters" forces full refresh of source files

    Working with the new parameters functionality in order to import source files from our LAN has been great, but there is one annoying caveat. We can include file path and regional filter paramters a la "let Source = Access.Database(File.Contents(ParamFileLocation & "\" & ParamRegion & "\BIBudget.accdb"), [CreateNav...... " and allow users to change the region on the fly.

    However, whenever a user changes *any* parameter via the desktop ribbon Edit Parameters button, on close the interface makes no distinction as to which parameter changed, and forces a full refresh of all files, including large historical data files that take ten to…

  15. Add ability to get ResponseHeader when use Web.Contents

    Some sources, e.g. Cognos Mashup Service, Yandex.Metrica, require authentication on first URL when usual "httprequester" can get Set-Cookie headers from ResponseHeaders.
    Then we can do httprequest to second URL (that differs from first one) for reports or data (having Cookie in headers).

    Would be great to cover this scenario in Power Query.

  17. Loop option for Pulse Chart

    When viewing a Pulse Chart on a dashboard in TV Mode, it would be ideal to have the visualization automatically loop since there's no user to interact with the buttons.

  18. Ability to set Focus and other Display Properties in Embedded

    Displaying a Power BI Embedded report in an HTML DIV displaying on a desktop PC, reportt appears sized as a "postage stamp". For a user to see content that fills its container (DIV), the Focus button must be clicked. The report URI should contain QueryString functionality that will tell the viewer to display embedded content with full Focus so the user does not have to click any button. This is for usability and user perception of quality.
