  1. Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

    It would be great if Grand Totals on a Matrix or Table would add up correctly to the sum of the rows when you include MEASURES in the visual. Currently the total on a measure consists of the measure function itself, instead of the sum of the rows above. PLEASE give us the option to toggle totals to be a simple aggregate of the rows above also.

        • Set date slicers to current date

          A great thing would be to set the end date of a date slicer automatically to current date or end of current month.

          For reports that are automatically refreshed daily this would improve handling a lot.

          In certain reports i don‘t wan to use a relative date slicer but a from/to slicer always starting the same date (e.g 01/01/2018) and end date is always moving automatically to current date today or to end of current month.

          • Power BI Report server Tab or Page name in URL like Section parameter

            In case of multiple tabs in a report, we want to load specific tabs when a report is embed using Iframe. Right now rc:Section paramter does not work. We want a similar functionality.

            • Refresh a dataset with filters

              It would be good to be able to refresh a dataset with filters. As an example, refresh a dataset with certain Cost Centres or certain business units. Rather than having to read all data.

              • moving data sources between gateway clusters

                Hello,
                It would be great if we have the ability to move data sources between gateway clusters so that we could use gateway cluster groups as categories etc or merge data sources that have initially been created in different clusters but are using the same gateway into one cluster.

                Thank you

                    • Please allow for for My SQL connections in the gateway to work without a password to the My SQL database.

                      Please allow for My SQL connections in the gateway to work without a password to the My SQL database. I am working with a dental application and the default is for no password to MySQL. There are user level passwords however. thanks

                      • Power Bi Service - My Workplace pane

                        My Workplace pane on the left-hand side is not easy to read. It would be nice if the sections; Dashboards, Reports, Datasets, etc. were better separated visually by adding lines between those sections or some color shading, etc. It all looks mixed up with the same background and font color/size.
                        Thank you.

                                • Allow users to turn off standard notifications

                                  Every time I pin a tile to a dashboard, I get two notifications. The same two notifications. These cover up the workspace until dismissed and just generally get in the way. I want to be able to turn them off.

                                      • Power BI Web API Dataset refresh

                                        Allow Power BI Web datasets that use APIs and API keys to be able to be refreshed properly. Currently if you run an API to get a dataset then you will run into an issue where tying to update the credentials in "Data source credentials" will not work properly.
