  1. Add sort order option for items in page level filter.

    Add the option to sort the items in a page level filter. Currently defaults to ascending order ie (2018, 2019, 2020...) I'd like to be able to reverse the order items appear in the filter selection - (2020, 2019, 2018...).

      • show datasource name tied to dataset

        currently we are not able to see to which datasource a dataset belongs to. All we can see is the gateway name. It will be useful to display the datasource name as also. If a datset has multiple datasources, show all the datasources names.

        • Allow admins to send notifications via Notification Center

          As a Power BI Administrator, I want to be able to push rich custom notifications to all users or to a subset of users and have those notifications appear in the Notification Center. For example, if we have internal training, new support procedures, critical announcements etc I would be able to send those notifications to users via the Notification Center in Power BI

            • Use REST API to export report to PowerPoint

              Hi,
              Now that PowerBI Team has made possible to export reports to PowerPoint (GREAT JOB!), it would be awesome to be able to call this function through REST API to an embedded frame. Thanks!

                • text wrap in data labels

                  We need to be able to turn on text wrap for data labels, so that they're easier to read and fit on the screen better.

                    • Overall usage report (last viewed dashboard/report) per user over multiple workspaces

                      We have over 300 dashboards and reports within our organisation, and there is no overview PER USER if the users are all active and viewing dashboards/reports, and which ones. As we have x-amount of licenses, I can't judge know based on active usage if we need to add/remove powerBI Pro licenses or not, based on current active usage.
                      So it would be very helpful to have a report over multiple dashboards (even, as an admin, I don't have access to all dashboards, but still I would like to have to overview as i am responsible for licenses), OR have the…

                        • Multiple Queries on single Connection

                          It seems that a new connection is need for every query in the Sql Server Database "Get Data" advanced option. I would be nice to be able to write multiple queries against a single connection. A single editor can work, but it may be more intuitive if the SQL Statement had tabs for each query. So if I wrote 3 queries, I would use 3 tabs, and there would be 3 Datasets in the Data and Model Section of Power BI Desktop. If this functionality already exists in another form, please let me know.

                            • Visualisations to have pre-contained data like Datazen did for creating wireframes

                              Add the ability to have the base 20+ visuals contained in Power BI with some base data from Contoso, so they are like old school Datazen, so you can create your visualisation (with effects) without the need to have or create a dataset.

                              Allowing a business user to create a wireframe or storyboard for discussion, and then come back later and attach their real data through the modelling side.

                                • Measures Hiearchy

                                  When Creating Measures you might have to define a Sub Measure that are a defined part of the Core Measure.
                                  Today you can not set the dependencies and logic of the two in a good visuliation within PowerBI so that data consumers understand it inituativly.
                                  My suggestion would to be able to also set the Measures as an Hiearchy which could be dispayed with dedicated Visual.
                                  In the Hiearchy you would need to set the definition of the connection (could be set as: Part of / Excluded part etc.).

                                      • Hide a group or multiple tables

                                        I have appended and grouped many tables in Power Query but now want to hide them all in data view. Currently the grouping doesn't show in data view and it seems I have to hide each one individually so what's the point in grouping them? It would be really useful if I could hide each group so that I only have appended tables in view
