      • Subscribe to notifications on behalf of other users

        I've created a report, pinned a tile of that report to my dashboard and subscribed myself to notifications when that value exceeds a given value. I would like the ability to subscribe other Power BI users to also get those notifications (without having to have those individual users login to Power BI and subscribe to those notifications.) Is it possible to setup 1) Ability to opt other users into notifications or 2) Notifications that go to everyone in a group if the group owner has setup a notification in that group dashboard?

          • Remove drill down, hierarchies and other "advanced" data tools in PBI embedded

            We are working hard to keep things simple for our users and to get our PBI embedded reports to be exactly how we want them. The appearance of the drill down tools, expanding hierarchies etc. adds complexity that are at odds with this goal of simplicity. Please allow us to turn these tools off through the api just as we can turn off the the filter page and page navigation.

            • AutoCad 2d/3D visuslisation

              I would like the ability to generate power Bi visuals directly from an AutoCAD 2d dwg file and 3D block massing file. I have data from multiple data systems and using various statistical algorithms would like to display the data on both a floor plan and site plan.

              Anyone with ideas on how I can achieve this please contact.

              • Scatter Plots with Both Custom Data Colors AND Play Axis

                Ideally, I'd want to be able to "gray out" all but the current selection so that it would be easy to see one or two selected bubble's movements vs 100+ others.

                • Add a 'close' option from the File menu and to the quick access toolbar

                  Currently if a user has 2 dashboards open and needs to close one...the Desktop software does not allow for the user to select File, then 'close', nor can the user add 'close' to the quick access toolbar.

                  It would be great if you added a 'close' option for the user.

                  • "Data too irregular to forecast" error

                    Trying to do forecasting on a monthly basis and it doesn't work when I expand down to a monthly view. I get a "data too irregular to forecast" error. When I click on the details it says "Forecast can't be created because the timeline isn't evenly spaced." Seems silly figuring that by using the Expand capability it should be done. The only way I can get it to work is if I expand down to daily which is too many data points.

                    • Offline data filtering - Mobile Reports

                      We have facing a issue when our sales reps are out of office visinting our customers. They need filter some reports when there is no connection in some places.
                      The offiline capabilites is already release but filter and slices feature not yet.

                      Is there any way to make offline data filtering? SSRS?

                      • End Users can save the report as required

                        Why can't we have the option to save the report as per our(end user) requirement?
                        For Example - I save the dashboard with filters as only A,B and C. Then I open the dashboard next day and there was refresh done from back end but still I am able to see only data for A, B, C filters.

                        • Switch off arrow buttons for drilling

                          As we are embedding our Power BI reports in our web application with Power BI Embedded, we find it that users don't find all of the arrow buttons for drill-down/drill-up very intuitive. Furthermore, we do not need all these drill functionalities.

                          We are now explaining all these buttons in our application, but we would rather have it more intuitive by itself so this explanation is not necessary. So we would like to have the possibilities to switch some of these drill buttons off.

                            • Parameters

                              It would be great, if you can add the ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself.

                                • [PowerBI Embedded] Get the reportid of a newly created report.

                                  While PowerBI embedded allows for multi-tenant solutions, it doesn't include many of the report management features (e.g. report permissions, subscriptions) that PowerBI does.

                                  We're wrapping our own management features around PowerBI Embedded but to do so, we need the report id of reports created within the Embedded interface.

                                  Currently, there are no events on the javascript side that will notify us of a report being created/saved.

                                      • Update Dashboards with JSON / XML / Web Data as Datasource

                                        Publishing Power BI workbooks whose data source is from JSON, XML, Web e.g. no refreshes are happening on a local SQL Server etc. To refresh any dashboard we are prompted to install a gateway, but not all dashboards should necessitate a gateway in order to refresh.
