      • Allow saving Excel directly to PBIRS like paginated reports

        Currently you can't save excel files directly to PBI Report Server. Similar to how you can save PBI or Paginated Reports.
        Many users have reports in Excel workbooks and need to be able to Open, Modify and save back.
        Currently the only way to do this is to download the file, store it locally, make modifications, save it locally, go into PBIRS and upload to a specific location via portal. You should just be able to save from within the Excel desktop client.

                • Scheduled Refresh in Power BI Report Server

                  Add more options for scheduled refresh e.g. every hour from 06:00 AM up to 08:00 PM This would eliminate unnecessary refreshment of the data over nigth.

                  The created SQL-Job is capable of the adjusting this refreshment rate.So, it should be possible to offer it in the user interfaces

                  • Full Screen Option in Power BI Report server

                    It would be good to have full screen option, so that consumer can present in full screen. It good to have icon for that before setting icon in top right navigation same like Power BI Service. Right now I can do that using URL by appending ?rs:embed=true but my users and not technical enough to do that.

                      I would like to have the same new filter features from the desktop version to be available on the report server version as well.

                      • report server powerapp

                        Allow PowerApps visuals to be used inside Power BI Report Server.

                        We currently have several PowerApps visuals that work in the Power BI service and then break once we move the report to Report Server.

                        • Oauth in Power BI Report Server

                          Hi Team

                          As explained on the following link:

                          https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Datasource-for-CRM-365-in-Power-BI-Report-Server-Unable-to/idc-p/636953#M39890

                          Currently, PBI Report Server admins are unable set up data Datasources in power bi dashboards for connections to services such as CRM 365, and using organizational account.

                          The idea is for the Report Server to very much mimic what's been done in the PBI Service and allow Oauth for users like us that have accounts in many services, CRM365, google Analytics, etc.

                          Thanks!

                          • Have an ability to have a different display name for a report other than the original report name

                            Reports when designed have a more technical and descriptive name but not necessarily the names are user friendly and short. It will be nice if Power BI report server has a feature that allows to have a different display name for a report in the folder that is visible on the Portal.

                            • Add an interface in Power BI Reports for browsing shared datasets on the Report Server.

                              A current capability we use in Power BI Reports on our Power BI Report Server is consuming Shared Datasets that are already on the server. We should have a "Shared Dataset" connector option in Power BI Optimized for Report Server that helps users identify which Shared Dataset are available on the server and the parameters(if any) are required to use the shared dataset. This would be a similar capability that exists in Report Builder when adding shared datasets.

                              This could be a simple UI that ultimately results in an OData source using the PBI REST API. This would simplify adding…

                                  currently is does not seem to be possible to set up kerberos constraint delegation from an on premise pbi report server to azure analysis services. it is not possible to create SPN's on the azure analysis services because the service account is managed by MS.

                                  • Add filter preview and customizing filter pane (just like in Jan 2019 Power BI Services) to Desktop RS and Server versions

                                    1. Hide Filter pane from report published to Power BI Report server.
                                    2. Create or cutomize filter pane for Report Server (as of Jan 2019 this is only available in Power BI Desktop and Power BI Service Jan 2019 versions).
                                    3. Make Visuals filter selection propagate to other pages/tabs in the Dashboard (E.g. I click one value in a table or a bar in a chart and all corresponding data in any other page/tab filters accordingly. As of Jan 2019 RS and RS Desktop version this is not possible. This would be similar to how syncing slicers controls now work.

                                    • Schedule Multiple sources at multiple scheudles in one single pbix report

                                      Hi, right now we are not able to create different schedule refreshes for same report.

                                      Example our report has two sources (from two servers SQL and Teradata). Teradata Source refresh should be daily and SQL source refresh should be hourly. Both these are for same pbix file. Can we have this important feature as this will help to schedule different sources differently.

                                      • Shape Map visualization for Power BI Report Server

                                        Bring the shape map that has been in Power BI preview for years into the Power BI Report Server. Preview features are not available in Power BI Report Server so on-premise only users cannot use shape maps and are stuck with bing maps. This makes Power BI on premise extremely limiting.
