    • Power BI Server in AWS

      Allow customers to install and run Power BI Server in an AWS environment.

      This would be a "local/on-prem" install - just in the AWS cloud. Right now, options are MS cloud or physically on-prem at your facility.

        • Need the negative numbers to be formatted in a bracket. no colors just simple bracket

          It seems that currently there is no option that would simply add a bracket to negative numbers for formatting purposes. Please add this as I believe a lot of people need this simple formatting feature. Thanks.

          • Add imported theme to "Switch Theme" menu

            The September 2018 desktop release made Switch Theme generally available. With it you can import a custom theme from a .json file.

            Once imported, the imported theme become active, but, even though there is a theme Name in the .json file, the new theme name is not added to the menu of choices and there is no indication that the theme with that name is now active.

            Please add imported themes to the menu and do something to highlight which theme is currently active.

            • Word wrap legend on bar and column charts

              Quite often the labels in legend fields stretch wider than the column chart can reasonably be. It would be helpful to be able to set the legend to word wrap so it goes to 2 or three shorter lines rather than truncating and hiding some classes off the right hand side of the bar or column chart

              • Slicer pane to consolidate all slicers and hide them when required

                Slicers allow interactive filtering of a dashboard but end up taking a lot of space, allowing them to be hidden when not in use would be a great space saver

                • Add dimension to

                  Use a dimension field to split Matrix DataBar.

                  When we use a databar in the value conditional formatting, to enlight the data, it may be a great idea to have and additional dimension, witch may split the databar accordindg to the vaue linked with the dimension member.

                  • Sort by a Calculated Column Based on Itself

                    I should be able to sort a column based on a calculated column based on the original column. For example, If I have three Sales Stages - New, Open, Closed - I should be able to create a calculated column using a switch statement to return 1 of New, 2 if open, and 3 if closed, and then use that to sort the Sales Stage. At present, it returns a "This column can't be sorted by a column that is already sorted, directly or indirectly, by this column." This does not make sense. The work around is to use M…

                    • Add the functions "search" and "autocomplete" in the columns of a table/matrix

                      It would be very useful have the functionality to click on an icon (magnifying glass) in the header of a column of a table/Matrix and then, writing a text to search a value in that column, see the list of the values that corrisponding at the text wrote (as in the function "if contains").

                      PS: this functionality is in Access

                      Thank you.

                      • Layout Tables that automatically constrain the size of visuals

                        Not everyone who uses Power BI is an experienced report designer or a coder. While the snap, alignment, and distribution features are a great help, the lack of layout tables (similar to InfoPath) slows down report building for me. If I had the ability to define a table, then place visuals and text into the various cells, and have the cells provide automatic size constraints to the visuals, that would be immensely helpful.

                        • Ability to Load data in the background

                          When loading data into PBI, it is impossible to do something else especially when the data is big. Being able to load data in the background and doing something else will be a great feature to have.

                            • Please give a option to change a report from Import Mode to Direct Query Report

                              If there is a option for changing from Import Mode to direct Query mode reports it will be a great help for developers because if datasets having huge data the import mode reports are taking lot of time to apply query changes. We already have a option from Direct Query to Import Mode.

                                Once you have created a report, and taken many hours to manually formatted colors, fonts, grids, charts, cards and other visuals, allow for those settings to be exported as a theme (JSON file) that you can use use it in other reports.

                                    • Relative Date Slicer: Can't Click on Slicer Options

                                      We are using relative date slicer on our reports. This slicer works fine on Power BI Desktop application. But when I publish this report and access it on various browsers we are not able to select values from first drop down i.e. Last/Next/This as well as second dropdown i.e. Days/Week/...
                                      We have tested this on chrome, edge, internet explorer and we observed the same behaviour.
                                      We are using the latest version of Power BI desktop application and we are using Pro License.
                                      Need a solution for this issue.

                                      • Allow visuals to be saved/copied as image

                                        It would be beneficial to be able to export a visual, with all filters applied, as an image for further use communication channels.

                                        • Link URL on a text value in power bi table or matrix

                                          Link URL on a text value in power bi table or matrix. Is there a way to link column value with URL. For example in column there is a value for some Id="3939". So, on click of this number a URL generated as "https"//abc.com/forums/3939". If there is some other number then other URL will be generated for that number. Please suggest.
