      • Relative Date filter week Mon-Sun

        the Relative Date filter options for the calendar week goes from sunday through saterday.

        Most companies I know, go from Monday through Sunday. Please give us the option to choose in the filter, or set it though the localization.

        • Improved feedback during publishing from Power BI Desktop

          Currently, during publishing the dialog window gives no real information about the publishing progress.

          It would be useful to see how much longer the publish process will take and how much progress has been achieved in the elapsed time.

          • Custom Visual Creator GUI

            IT would be amazing to have a tool that allowed users to create a custom visual that was a little less complicated than using NOE.js and requiring the user to know how to Use Typescript, JS, JSON, CSS, HTML.

            • Legend Labels inside Area Charts

              It would be amazing if we are able to put the legend labels inside the charts themselves like this:

              • Enhanced Features for Data Type Web URL

                I had used the feature "Filter a report using query string parameters in the URL" by watching the video in the link https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-url-filters/.

                It would be nice we can select a different icon for URL and
                set the target value to "_self" i.e. clicking a URL Link should'nt lead to a new page resulting number of tabs opened which not making sense there should an option to enable the page should not lead to a new page.

                  • Search on Card visualisation

                    With no function to "search" within the card that holds thousands of selectable values, it renders the entirety of power BI as useless.

                      • Select a single date from pop-up calendar in date slicer

                        There should be an option to select a single date from a pop-up calendar in date slicer (similar to the 'Between' view), as it is simpler than scrolling through the 'List' view looking for a particular date (it also doesn't help that the Search function doesn't seem to be available for the 'Dropdown' view, or this might've been a suitable solution.. the pop up calendar would still be preferred though).

                        • Marketplace for data connectors

                          We have some good connectors for online services in Power BI. But there are so many online services. It make sense to have a marketplace to have third-party connectors available in Power BI market place.

                          Developers can publish there connectors in the marketplace and users can use it. There can be free and premium content. Power BI ecosystem - user, developer and Power BI will benefit from this.

                          • Dynamically change the data source from salesforce users

                            I have 2 different user accounts in Salesforce. I would like to combine data from both users.

                            Here 2 different accounts means each user login belongs to different Organisation.
                            I would like to combine 2 organisational data into 1 dataset. Data will be presented based on organisation or it can view overall status.

                            Salesforce treat Organisation wise data, and each Organisation means a distinct database in technical term. User can access particular data as per login.
                            Only 1 gateway available to connect salesforce. https://login.salesforce.com/

                            Is it possible in Power BI ?

                            • Treat numeric data as alphanumeric.

                              I have a column of numeric data. However, PowerBI treats it as alphanumeric. Any idea why? I am sure they are Excel treat it as numeric.

                              • Add more hardware resource to the Power BI users forum

                                The User Forum seems to be suffering from lack of resources, I often spend more than 10 seconds waiting for a page to complete when I click to look at an item.

                                • Possibility to put a "Total Column" at "Chart" as exist at "Table" and "Matrix"

                                  Like at "Table" and "Matrix" visualizations, is it possible to have the same idea at "Charts"?
                                  Because when I put information month by month at "Table" or "Matrix", automatically it give me a total of all months, so I would to know if is possible to do the same for "Charts" and have a format to the person choice if would like or not.

                                    • Sites with sectors azimuth on the maps would be best

                                      The idea is to put the sectors with given azimuth for all sites list on the map so that you can filter on given KPI and visualize it sector level

                                      • Group command for visual elements and shapes

                                        Often I find myself arranging a few cards or slicers within a parent rectangle drawing object, using it like a frame. Can we please have a "Group" command like in Publisher, Powerpoint etc. so that I can move the items as a visual group? You might need to be careful with the naming of the command since there is already a "Group" command that means something else...

                                        • the dashboard tiles should have a navigation bar to move between tiles.

                                          currently we can only focus on the tiles but cannot navigate from focus mode to other tiles. we have click 'back' and click on the next tile. if there is a navigation bar we can move between tiles at a go.
