  1. Apply consistent indentation for multi-line formulas for viewing in advanced editor

    In the Power Query Editor, it is possible to enter a multi-line formula in the formula bar. For example:

    = () => let
    Source = SampleIndexedTimeline,
    fxFormPath = (_) => if _[parentIndex] <> null then
    Number.ToText(_[parentIndex]) & "/" & _[idPath]
    else
    _[idPath]

    When this is examined in the Advanced Editor, it does not indent any line but the first in any sensible way:

    let
    Source = SampleIndexedTimeline,
    fxFormPath = (_) => if _[parentIndex] <> null then
    Number.ToText(_[parentIndex]) & "/" & _[idPath]
    else
    _[idPath],
    #"Extract parentIndex" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(Source, "parentRow", {"index"}, {"parentIndex"}),

    Every other line is fully indented (and prefixed with the…

    • Allow non-admins to see enterprise gateways in dataflow creation

      According to my experience and the documentation, only admins of enterprise gateways can see gateways during the dataflow creation process. Can this not be opened up to report authors as well? Our enterprise gateway is controlled by IT and has one or two administrators. "Self-service ETL" won't be realized unless report authors can create dataflows using the enterprise gateway.

      • Ability to select data and add to a shopping cart to build a programme of information

        This information could be selected, stored and exported directly to another page, rather than print to excel and reload.

        • Change "Last" year/month, etc relative date filter to include current YTD and full Prev. Year.

          When doing a relative date filter, it should help users make easy YoY or YTD vs PYTD comparison. "Last" 2 years function seems unusable because it does not conform to general business requests.

          • scatter plot category label position

            please add the ability to move the category labels for a scatter plot. You cannot change the position and it is very confusing/ misleading. The labels often look like they do not correspond to the correct bubble.

              • More shapes

                More shapes should be added to current options, like the range offered in Microsoft PowerPoint. The different functionalities (To merge, add, subtract and unionize shapes) would also be greatly useful

                • Moving Multiple Objects with arrows keys

                  We can move a single selected item with arrow keys, but this is not possible when multiple items are selected. Please make this a feature.

                  • Multi-Select Tool

                    An option to drag a box with your mouse (on the report page) and select multiple items, making it easier to move items around on the page (rather than Ctrl + selecting each item individually).

                    • Grouping

                      Would be great to be able to "Group" different elements on the Report page, like you can do in PowerPoint. Would make moving and positioning visuals on the page much easier.

                      • Q&A Show Preview On Report

                        While I'm adding Q&A button to my reports, when asking users it seems they are not clicking on it and/or trying to use this Q&A. I think if Q&A was more visible (maybe include ability to embed Q&A directly to report and/or at least some sort of bigger preview.) I think clicking on a button is just not entuitive for most users. Q&A should be allocated more space and more visibility to entice users to start using.

                        • Customers who only bought one product

                          We are looking for a means to pull customers who only bought one particular product/has only one service. For. ex. if a customer bought 2 or more products, they shouldn't be part of this list. And we should be able to do this for any product(slicing/dicing).

                          • Dashboards - require double click to go to underlying report.

                            Require a double click to go to the underlying report in dashboards. Very frustrating to constantly be redirected to the report when just trying to move the tile or click the ellipses.

                            • change display name of app

                              I would like the ability to set a custom display name for an app so that it is not only the name of the app workspace that is shown in "get apps". This way the app workspace can have a different (internal) name from what the end users see, making it easier to handle staging and test environments, for instance.

                                • Allow to change Filter Card Name

                                  Under Filters we are not allowed to change the name of the field. This is not consistent, since we are allowed to change the name of the fields when not in Filter pane by double-clicking. This was introduced a long time ago, however no such ability was added for fields dragged to Filters. This is especially important with introduction of Filters pane/card changes in November 2018 Desktop upgrade since we don't want our Business Users to see inconsistent field names between visuals and filters.

                                  • filter card internet explorer

                                    The new filter (in preview) doesn't render properly in Internet Explorer. It works fine in Chrome, Firefox and Edge.

                                    Basically it cuts off the letters FIL in FILTERS. I've tried on multiple machines.

                                    The new filters functionality will be great once these small issues are worked out.

                                      The new Calendar visual by MAQ Software is great, but it does not allow cross filtering nor URL so that users can click on a specific occurrence and be redirected to a web page.

                                        • Include R Package rcdk

                                          It would be great to have support for the R package 'rcdk'. This package is available on cran and is very useful for Chemists.
                                          See: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/rcdk/index.html
