  1. Variable in Textbox

    Would be nice to have a variable available in Textbox object to display non-static information.

    • Granular workspace admin rights

      Admin permissions for app workspaces should be more granular. Not god mode on or off.

      This could be used to create division of duties for publish and release.

      Eg.
      Report author user can publish to app workspace.
      Release user can release changes to read-only users.

      • Devops Process

        There is currently no clear, built-in system for source control, test, gated approval and release of new reports.

        If you have admin rights, you have god mode. Use it with caution.

        As a result, IMHE analysts teams are likely to learn the hard way about all the reasons why formal IT teams have developed governance controls for software development and release.

        I can imagine this becoming a functionality of Power BI Premium since it's an enterprise type feature.

        I can imagine a scenario where the reports authors publish to a project in VSTS . Then VSTS' build environment runs unit…

        • Agrupar Formas.

          Creio ser útil poder agrupar "formas" e "imagens" como já existe no Microsoft Excel. Facilitando o manuseio e a formatação de cenários.

          • Custom labels in shapes from source data

            Allow users to link the title of a particular shape, text box, or graph with a cell in their source data.

            • Please add Formatted export option to PowerBi. Currently, when you export its is a raw data export.

              This is a big gap because you can not print a formatted report from PowerBi. You can only print the current page which is basically useless for reports with Matrix/Tables.

              Adding the ability to export to Excel the data as it is formatted in a Matrix would allow end users to perform further analysis without having to build pivot tables from the raw data (time consuming) and allow the end user to also print the formatted data.

              • Power BI desktop missing frown

                The feedback frown face is missing from my version of PowerBI Desktop... So i'm submitting the bug/problem through suggestions (the only thing that is available through my version of PowerBI...)

                The main problem i'm trying to report though is:
                trying to import a SQL table (a few of them at the same time, but they keep giving me the same error so I tried one at a time and got the same issue), but I get the error:

                Failed to save modifcations to the server. Error returned: 'OLE DB or ODBC error: Type mismatch. (Exzception from HRESULT: 0x80020005 (DISP_E_TYPEMISMATCH)).'.

                • Reporting on inactive users

                  Our primary focus is on users that are NOT using the features including Office PP licensed users that are not activated, etc. It seems very painful to identify users that are NOT active.

                  • Allow programmatic setting of slider defaults

                    Allow for default slider values to be set programatically. For example lower=today()-60 and upper=today().

                      • Easy NULL button in Query View

                        I'm exploring databases we've not explored before and have found myself looking at a lot of tables and columns that have "Null" for the entire column.
                        I would LOVE to have an "Easy NULL" button that basically tells me: here is a listing of all the tables, and the columns, where the only value found in the columns were NULL values...and then have a "Remove Columns from Query" button....and that's it...all removed. The problem right now is that when you KNOW what you want, it's not an issue...but when you are exploring new databases you have to go through each…

                                      • Legends in graphs as options - Choose which metrics you want to be displayed

                                        I have 6-7 metrics in one report and I would like the business user to select which metrics to be displayed in the graph

                                        Having the metrics as check boxes in the legend will make this much more user friendly and cleaner plus reduce number of visualizations needs on the report

                                        • Table/Matrix Expansion

                                          The ability to have a full table show just a few columns with all rows, but when one or more rows are selected it expands and shows more columns of detail about those rows of data.
