  1. View dataset refresh queue

    It would be great to be able to see the queue of data refreshes in the powerbi.com service and be able to cancel refreshes that have not occurred yet. For example right now you can manually kick off multiple refreshes on the same dataset without knowing how many are queued up or being able to cancel them. These then needlessly execute and the admin has no control over the queue.

    • Mobile app dashboards list - wrap text

      We have a lot of dashboards which start with the same text as required by our Executive team which makes the dashboard and report names longer than what can be displayed in the mobile apps (iPhone, iPad, Surface Hub TV). Please consider wrapping the text or at least make the dashboard list tiles wider for iPad and Surface Hub TV. This is a major usability issue for our organization.

      • Add Money (Coin) Pile visuals for Bar Charts

        In order to differentiate budget or money related visuals from other type of metrics, I would be looking for a possibility of having a "money pile" layout for my bar charts.

        So as an easy example having Marketing Budget Spent as well as Visits received stats per month as two bars next to each, would make it pretty easy for the user if there would be kind of a visual "money" indicator.

        Regards
        Ben

          • Include report filters selected when printing

            When printing your report from Power BI Service, please include an option to print all selected filters as well.

            It is very good to have for users when comparing printed reports to make sure they are using the same filters.

            • dashboard

              I would like to be able to visually group dashboard items. I have a dashboard consisting of 3 -4 different KPI's(from reports) that cover 4 different areas. Now I see 12-16 KPI boxes, that contain describing text, but I would love to ha a simple functionality to visually group them, this could any of the following:

              1) Be able to color them with that same color (like a very light green or red or yellow)

              2) Be able to draw a "box" where the different areas are grouped (the line could also be a color)

              3) Be able to shade…

                  The ability to hide blanks on the child hierarchy is critical for drill-down functionality on all visuals.

                  • PBI Embedded: Control visual columns programmatically through API

                    We need some API method to allow modification of the PBIX file directly, to hide columns/tables and change the data fields used in visualizations.

                      • More options for handling NaN and Infinity values

                        For business language and report adoption purposes, I'd like to specify what is displayed when the result is NaN or Infinity AND STILL RETAIN THE ABILITY TO USE CONDITIONAL FORMATTING ON THE COLUMN!

                        • More options for horizontal slicer colors

                          Currently the only available colors for selected item(s) in horizontal slicers is black. Also the only available color when hovering over items in horizontal slicers is grey. We need more options in coloring horizontal slicers not only for branding and stylizing purposes but a grey hover over color can cause confusion as grey could be interpreted as a disabling color.

                            I created a custom visual that displays video using the html5 <video> tag. This displays fine in the web app, but does not display in the desktop app.
                            Please add support so that the desktop app and web app have similar functionality.

                                To do data verification, we need to verify the full table result. Rather than to create a table and insert column one by one, will be easier if can drag the full dataset to canvas.

                                • Support REST APIs for all Power BI Service capabilities

                                  There are many capabilities that are supported using the Power BI Web service that are not supported by REST APIs that are accessible via Power BI embedded. One example is the ability to change the datasource for a dataset from one blob store account/container to another.

                                  • Ability to Change Report Layout Based on Tablet/Computer/Phone

                                    I would like to see us have the ability to adapt the screen layouts to the different types of devices that one may be using. For example, if you are creating reports for iPad Mini's then you should be able to set your screen size so you can adjust visuals for the user. This is something that Tableau has that would be beneficial for creating customized reports for people in the field.
