      • More detailed information on Dataset refresh failure email

        The current email that alerts the dataset owner of a failed scheduled refresh is nice. However, it doesn't contain the specific error information that is available in the Dataset refresh history and via the API.

        This idea is to add the detailed reason for the failure, called the "Data source error"
        e.g. Data source error: Scheduled refresh is disabled because at least one data source is missing credentials. To start the refresh again, go to this dataset's settings page and enter credentials for all data sources. Then reactivate scheduled refresh.

        • Add a view option to Workspaces &Apps that would allow the publisher/admin to see the landing space from a consumers view.see what they see

          Add a view option to Workspaces &Apps that would allow the publisher/admin to see the landing space from a consumers view. Basically you would be able to view the workspace or app in the same perspective.

          • border to shapes

            I use scatterplots a lot and sometimes the shapes are to close to each other to distinguish them from one another. Being able to add a border to the shapes could solve the problem and it is currently not a feature.

              • Print one slide for powerpoint

                Printing PowerBI online reports to PowerPoint only allows printing the entire report (all tabs). It would be great to be able to select what is printed to Powerpoint. I sometimes have to update a powerpoint deck, and it would be helpful to not have to print 20 slides so that I can replace a single slide in the deck.

                • Controlled Sort Order in Visual Format Screen

                  Place Sort Order as a format item that can use a field object for its control. In this solution you also need to allow for the designer to intentionally turn off "selectable sort order" for the report user in the same way that the header can be turned off.

                  Sometimes the designer knows exactly how something should be sorted - but to make sorting work with many visuals, we have to create new methods and incorporate the sort order into our DAX. By adding Sorting Control to the Format of a visual - we can ease the DAX burden which…

                  • measure and column dependency in power bi web

                    I need to find all the reports on my power bi web site which are using a specific measure or column.

                    I'm using an on premise Tabular server with a lot of reports connected to it.
                    I have to change some measures and before this I have to identify which report will be impacted. (reports created online directly or on premise and published)

                    so a full and detailed dependency on the web will be excellent.
                    even more when we add the dataflow features where we'll import data directly in Power BI.

                      Font needs to be a bit larger for the vision impaired.

                      • Include text values in multi row card

                        There should be an option to insert text values in multi row card and still maintain the card title.

                        • Resource Management Form - Hour Totals

                          For the resource management tool, could you please add a 'total hours' summary that accounts for all assignment hours entered (ie total hours should add up to 40 per week as a check)

                            • In the training videos, could you briefly show the data prior to each lesson?

                              I need to understand how the data is organized as this greatly impacts the resulting report.

                                  • Total for text columns in Table/Matrix

                                    Currently the total value of the table with columns of text is really confusing. You see either the first or the most common value. I will be glad if you add the option of selecting any value as total from the whole column (Power BI does not always make the right choice), inputting the new text (for example my own conclusion based on data) or just hide the total value of chosen column (useful if you need total for numbers, but do not want to see any text on this row).
