                • Multi-select feature (Feb 2018) for word cloud visual

                  The Word Cloud visual does not work with the February 2018 Update Feature "Multi-select data points across multiple Charts" to cross filter through Word Cloud and other visuals. This should be fixed.

                  • Drillthrough with multiple filters - ability to force drillthrough when in context of both filters

                    At the moment, when there are two drill through filters defined for a page, you can get to that page from anywhere where either of those filters is satisfied. e.g. if Department and Date are both drill through filters, visuals on other pagers where either Department or Date are included will allow the drill through.

                    I want it to be an 'And' (or at least have a toggle) - only allow drill through if both Department and Date are selected. At the moment my workaround is to duplicate the column to allow only the drill through where I need it.

                    • Allow usage of Web fonts

                      Would be useful to be able to use web fonts in our reports, either adding the common ones to the supported fonts or the ability to add a custom font to my report.

                      One of the blocker to use powerBi embedded is it's not consistent with our UI, we can solve part's of this issue using the themes but the fonts are the other blocker.

                        • Undo option for PowerBI Dashboards

                          A lot of times, while moving the tiles in a large powerbi dashboard, tiles get wrongly placed and all the layout goes bad as powerbi automatically moves all the tiles below. Needed a quick option to revert the changes back as people have to redo all the original work .

                          • pass parameter to dashboard and propogate to reports

                            we need to have an option to pass filters to the dashboard and all the tiles should show data for the filtered set. Now when the user clickes the tiles, it should take us to reports and apply this filters.

                              Add Row Count as part of the PROPERTIES in the QUERY SETTINGS pane of Power Query.

                              Below Name and table; add a Label "Row Count"
                              Below the label add a text box containing the total row count value for that table.

                              As the user steps through the APPLIED STEPS; recalculate and display the row count - on steps that affect the row count.

                                I would am trying to track a data series as it changes from one day to the next with one column as a key factor for comparison. Instead of creating new datasets I would like to be able to copy the values in column "Today" to column "Today - 1" with the final column being "Today - 4". I know the duplicate command exists however my preference would be to execute something that would copy "Today -3" to "Today - 4", "Today - 2" to "Today - 3" and "Today - 1" to "Today - 2" and then refresh my…

                                  Would be nice to have a probe that checks the availability of the Premium Capacity. With a probe scheduled to run every x number on minutes/hours, admins could be notified of an outage before user's start having issues.

                                    • Display visual by filter values

                                      Show or hide a visual based on filters - most useful in time based logic.

                                      Sometimes, a business user will request separate visuals on a single page for different months or quarters. It would be much tidier if the entire visual could be hidden based on a filter rather than displaying empty visuals or projections with no actuals, for instance.

                                      • Javascript API to get selected data

                                        It would be nice if there was a Javascript API to get the selected data in a visual (to know wich bar / lines / rows are selected in a visual).

                                        Currently we have a dataSelected event that's available, but the event doesn't tell us if we have multiple data that are selected (if the user selected the data with the Ctrl key pressed) and we don't really know when the data is unselected.

                                        Thanks!

                                          The sign-in-ness of this website is totally jacked up. If I want to vote for an idea or post my own, I shouldn't have to keep signing out and back in to convince this website that I'm a user.

                                          I mean, it auto-populates my user name into the sign-in box right below this, so how does it not know who I am?
