        On Phone, I want to select Filter value of reports like Phone app.
        Selecting a filter value by one touch need App operation on Phone.

        Currently, I need two touch to do.
        1st touch select the filter visual.
        2nd touch select the filter item.

        3rd touh can select other filter item.
        and, I need two touch for select other filters / filter item.

        I don't need 1st touch's selecting filter visual action.
        I want to select filter item by 1st touch.

        Other app on phone, One touh operations for select any items, include Power BI Mobile app.

        Changing filter item…

        • In PowerBI Desktop (Nov 17 Update), the (+) button used to add new tabs is overlapping over the tabs navigation buttons.

          Bug:
          In PowerBI Desktop (Nov 17 Update), the (+) button used to add new tabs is overlapping over the tabs navigation buttons. This prevents you from navigating through the different tabs

          • External Guest Users - Limited # of Free Licenses

            I think the feature that expands access for external guest users is great especially when I found it worked with RLS. My suggestion to help adoption is to give tenants free Pro licenses to assign to guest users. It would provide a viral way to introduce Power BI in other organizations. You can do something along the lines of you get 1 free guest Pro license for every 10 Pro Licenses you subscribe to.

            • Export to Excel for Power BI Report View

              Currently we have reporting that is set for others to review and manage their metrics. Currently the Power BI Report View does allow the person to export to excel. Is there something that needs to be enabled? or can this feature be added?

                Allow a non-admin user to update Power BI Desktop version to without UAC elevation like o365 proplus 2016 and other click-to-run apps.

                  • Display units in Hundreds

                    I'd like the ability under the formatting tab, data labels, display units to include hundreds. There are times where displaying the data in a lower level numerical value would be beneficial.

                      • Refresh Frecuency 10 and 5 minutes for Tiles on DirectQuery

                        It is understood that the DirectQuery options always make the query directly to the Database, but I would like for this to be reflected more in real time than the visualizations have shorter refresh periods, such as 10 minutes and 5 minutes. Since currently there is only the option to 15 minutes. Thanks for your attention.

                        • parameter datasource

                          To be able to use a parameter value as servername in a SQL connection.
                          Change the parameter value, and all datasets bound to that datasource using this parameter as target gets updated at once (using the same credentials).

                            • Accessibility support for visually impaired analysts by starting to use standard windows colur schemes and high-contrast mode

                              I am a visually impaired CRM analyst and my company starts to use Power BI in a couple of weeks.
                              Unfortunatelly the desktop version of Power BI now on is not using the standardbackground, front and font colours of the windows framework, therefore I can only limitedly and slowly use this client.
                              If you would syncronize this great tool with the standard accessibility solutions of Windows, that would be the coolest help for me and for many impaired data workers in the far future! Thanks a lot in advance!

                                • Editar dados diretamente no Grid do editor de consulta

                                  Seria interessante conseguir alterar os dados diretamente no grid de visualização do editor de consulta do power BI, quando seleciono uma linha ele mostra um grid na parte inferior, sendo assim o power bi dentando editar os dados ali o mesmo poderia entender o que preciso fazer, exemplo quando eu inserir um dado após o valor exibido o mesmo já perguntará ao usuário se gostaria de aplicar a todos dados da consulta e gravaria uma etapa com está concatenação.

                                  • Cortana & Power BI Report Server

                                    Might be quite good for any use case. Just make a project for pre-planning analysis. The procurement department receives data from the sales department and checks whether these are plausible compared to the past. For example, I could enter Cortana now: Show me the part with the highest deviation for the Golf. Or Show me the biggest deviation for the Touran in week 40. Indicate for the Touran and the part XY the weeks where the deviation is over 50%. So I could imagine the Q & A function very well.

                                    • SSRS Style Parameters are vital for optimised Power BI Reports

                                      The way report parameters work in SSRS means we can have reports that load quickly and are optimised.

                                      Currently with Power BI we are presented with the solution to use slicers on the report, however that doesn't cut it when we have a lot of data in the back end it just isn't responsive and we have excruciating load times.

                                      Not having this feature is a deal breaker, and we cannot switch from SSRS to Power BI because of it.

                                      • Bar/column chart data labels to be made visible when inside the bar/column

                                        On 'line and clustered column chart' and 'line and stacked column chart', data labels are automatically made visible when positioned inside the bars by putting a white background shape around the data label. This feature is not available on other column/bar chart types. Can this be applied to all bar/column charts please?
