  1. Reset to default should stop hiding filter pane

    Right now when I click the Reset to Default button on my published Power BI report, the button not only resets to my default state, but it also removes the filter pane, which I do not want it to do. The report was published with the filter panes showing so users could alter select filters. But the reset makes the pane disappear and this state is not part of my default settings when the report was published.

  2. Ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself

    My organization use (PBIRS) but it has huge data and it's the effect on our performance.
    It would be great; if you can add the ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself. In this mount, it's working only by change values from the toolbar edit parameter.

  3. Push TopN Logic for DirectQuery Visuals to Database

    DirectQuery could be made much more effective if one could limit the amount of records fetched from the database.

    Say you have a million record table and you just want the top 100 records. Power BI gives you the TopN filter in the visual when using DirectQuery, but it still asks the database for all million records before keeping the top 100.

    If the database is already sorting the query by the measure provided to TopN filter why not just have Power BI send the select TOP(1000001) ... query to the database as select TOP(101) ... that way Power BI…

  5. Custom Format for Scheduled Automated e-Mail Triggers

    Hi,

    Custom Formats should be made available when we trigger Automated e-mail Triggers.

    A few features like this is available in Power BI Robots (why cant we have these made available in Power BI mainstream too?)

    Regards,
    Vignesh Raja

  6. Power BI On-Prem

    We installed Power BI On-prem in our environment. After assessing the application, we figured that users with Power BI Pro license have an option in Power BI Desktop App to "Publish a report to cloud" or "Save as a report to Power BI On-prem report server". Having an option to publish to cloud would defeat the purpose of an On-prem installation. I would recommend having a separate build of "Power BI Desktop App" for On-prem only installation, which does not provide an option to publish report to cloud.

  7. Url parameter (pageName) to specify page of PowerBI Report in PBI RS

    In Power BI Report server (on-prem) it would be nice, if we were able to specify the landing page of a PowerBI report using an url-parameter, in the same way as it is possible in the service using ?pageName=Page2

  9. Security - Managing users

    When managing security you have to know the Username of the user you wish to add, not by User principle name or by Display name.
    Our company user name are a employee Id. So it's not possible to know by looking who has permissions. This makes it difficult to find a user without asking or do AD searches outside of Report Server. Please enhance the security users to show Display name, or by user principle name so it can more obvious who access is assigned, we try to use groups when we can. However there is away exceptions.

  10. Report server - Refresh Error Page

    Admin space showing all refresh failures on PBI Report Server. I would like a page on the Report Server where I can see all refresh failures on the server and an option to pick and choose which ones to run again. Today I have a paginated report with a subscription every day that lets me know which reports failed, but then have to go into the Management screen for each individual report to diagnose and re-run it.

  11. Report Server and RS desktop release documentation

    There is a great release history for desktop here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-latest-update-archive
    Similar documentation is needed for Report Server and also for RSDesktop. Having to dig for the information in blog posts and announcements is not user-friendly.

  12. Upload a modified dashboard without having to upload all the data again

    When I upload a dashboard to our premium space, I get asked if I want to upload the data too, since the same data is already present online. If I click on cancel, it doesn't upload my changes; if I click OK, I have to wait for my data to be uploaded. Why can't we simply upload changes to the dashboard itself without the data? When the data is big, it's quite a pain in the a** to wait after having modified a simple title, for example.

  13. Show the word Favourites (rather than Favorites) for UK users

    My Windows display language is set to English (United Kingdom) yet I see "Favorites" (the US spelling) in place of "Favourites" (the UK spelling) in Power BI Report Server (on premise) v15.0.1102.597

    If I change my Windows 10 preferred language to French and restart the browser (IE 11) I get "Favoris", which is as expected

    So it appears that "Favourites" has been misspelt somewhere

    Please can this be corrected

  14. Automatic refresh function

    Automatic refresh function is not working without creating own report for each of the tabs, and even then, the refresh has to be made for every browser window separately.

    That is not as smooth as the simply reloading the data by clicking the Refresh-button. In cloud Power BI version this problem can be solved putting URL parameter as reportSectionGUID for each tab. It is a shame that the same function is not available at on-prem version.

  17. After publishing an app if we unselect some of the options it is not reflected in app

    There a couple things that I want to suggest.

    1.)When we are about to publish an app on the Permissions tab, "Allow all users to connect to the app's underlying datasets using the Build permission" and "Allow user to make a copy of the reports in this app" SHOULD NOT be checked as a default.

    2.) If an app was originally published with "Allow all users to connect to the app's underlying datasets using the Build permission" option checked, but later unselected, it is not keeping the new settings and Analyze in Excel is still available.

    This is similar to…

  18. On PBI Report Server, add ability to edit parameters.

    In PBI Desktop for Report Server, you can edit your parameters. When report is deployed to the Power BI Report Server, you can edit the parameters on the server. I believe this capability already exists on the PBI Service.

  20. Allow users to update data - Limited N times per X hour

    Every single user things the "refresh" button allows them to get the latest data off the data source. It's completely misleading but it has also setup a "desire" that they all want control over.

    It would be amazing if, at least on report server if not the service, we are able to allow users to update the data and limit each user (or global limit on report) by N number of refreshes in 24 hours (or X hours).
