  1. Ability to delete "orphaned" Content Packs in organization

    Organizations need the ability to delete "orphaned" content packs where the owner (creator or workspace) no longer exists in the organization; possibly as an Admin role. When an employee leaves or group is removed, created content packs are still visible within My Organization and can not be deleted (only allowed by owner).

    • UI/UX Features - Desktop Navigation enhancements

      1) When selecting multiple visualizations in the UI, we cannot use the arrow keys to move the items around. We are forced to use the mouse. Moving a single item does work with the arrow keys

      2) Format Painter does not seem to control height and width of visualizations.

      3) Ability to select multiple columns and measures (for fast deletion purposes).

      4) Increase the size of the scroll carriages in the Report Designer and in the Table view. Currently it is about a 3 point line, and this can be difficult to see.

      5) Prompt user for creating hierarchies. If…

      • Renaming the Column Name

        When we apply an aggregate found in the drop down of a field, it shows up as "Count of" or "Sum of" field name in Visuals.
        How do we rename the column at those visuals

        • slicer

          It will be great if we can flow the slicer select from one page to another page. For example if I select category slicer in page 1 then it also needs to be reflect on page 2. Is it possible?

            • List of used fields in visuals (and in calculated fields and measures)

              How can I get a documentation which mentions which field is used on a visual? or in a calculation of a column or measure?
              With DAX studio we can make a list of calculated fields and measures. And with a little programming we can see which field as source for another calculated field or measure.
              I know that by clicking on a visual the involved dataset will be highlighted into yellow. If I expand it, I see data fields used (which is selected) in this visual.To do this manually I'll need to click on each visual, manually make a note…

              • Parameterised content packs

                I have an template for a content pack and I want to make cookie cutter template reports for specific contexts that all refer back to the same data set with a parameter.

                At first I made the change in the pbix file and uploaded them all to the service but when they refresh they slam the database. Also maintenance is a PITA when I have to change the template and the 20 different variations all together. I experimented with Azure Analysis Services, broke the gateway and powerbi.com rained down on me with notifications about broken refreshes for each and every…

                • Permissions by tab

                  Make permissions based on individual tabs within the PBIX model, not just row level security. For example, sometimes row level security is either too complicated or won't work when deciding which users see what data, so it may be easier to have the option to let users see data by tab.

                    Manage Embed codes: - Ability to change status from Active to inactive

                    -This will give user option to Keep embed code in inactive stage in “Manage embed code” window and no need to delete completely. In case we need to reuse it, we can change status to active.
                    -Also, provide filter to select active or inactive embed code for managing code

                    • Bucket timeseries data

                      When visualizing or working with timeseries data, it would be great if it were possible to bucket the timestamps. Cut it by second, minute, hour, etc.

                      E.g. 12:59:22, 12:59:33 would both become 12:58

                      • Share dataset

                        In a team who is working in the same but with different perspectives is ideal not to invent the wheel again. If the dataset is share then the team work will be improve.

                        Also in the case when a life connection is done and it is update using the Enterprise gateway don't have any sense if many persons are using the same connection (for example to a OLAP Cube) to "install" the Enterprise gateway again and refresh the same data that someone already updated.

                        If the dataset is share then the Enterprise gateway can be installed only in a server…

                        • Filters On it's Own Pane or Maximize when a Visualization is Selected

                          Filters should start to be in it's own pane, otherwise the Visualization options should be a Dropdown Tiled List of Images and as soon as you select one it minimizes automatically to give space for the Filters. I have a lot of Visualizations imported and it's taking up space pushing the Filters down. I am a laptop user that's why I wanted this option, desktop with larger screens doesn't have this issue.

                          • Ability to edit a specific database

                            Power BI can be used in meetings using basically any kind of data displayed in a professional more user friendly way. This gives a better visualization of a pre existing website, portal or any other source added with extra information that may be pertinent.

                            In this context, it may me interesting to be able to add information to a pre existing database so that important remarks from the meeting and to-do lists can be inserted on the fly.

                            It can be implemented in a form (fancy way), or just to be able to insert the data/comments in the raw database…

                                  For Example, when I publish my monthly dashboard to my Finance teams, I would like them to 'Comment' on their results for that month. A place where they can add comments.

                                  • Power BI: customize Table and Matrix Headers

                                    Would like the ability to customize the Matrix and Table Headers without having to change the data set headers.

                                      • Marketo Connector

                                        Continually hitting API call limit on Marketo using either Power BI connector or content pack. Did not have this issue when testing same functionality with Tableau and Domo. Proposed solution of purchasing additional API calls from Marketo to resolve seems odd given what appears to be a design issue with the connector.
