    • Optionset labels from CRM Dynamics disappears when Dataflow data is loaded to Power BI Desktop

      I connect to a CRM Dynamics instance using Dataflows. On Dataflows, I can see the optionset labels when I use the fields ending with _display. However, when I connect to Dataflows from Power BI desktop, the optionset labels are loaded as blank.

      We need optionset labels t be available in Power BI Desktop

        • Dataflow Linked Entities auto-refresh across workspaces

          Right now if you link an entity to a dataflow in a different workspace, it does not auto-refresh like a linked entity in the same workspace. While this could be advantageous in some situation (for example linking to live data and using the linked dataflow to make "official" snapshots), it could also allow data to become stale.

          It would be good to allow users to select if a dataflow should stay in sync across workspaces, as well as being able to break the auto-refresh on in-workspace links.

          • Enterprise Dataflow: Share among all Workspaces

            Love the new Dataflow feature! Really transforms the way we used to bring data to PowerBI.

            I work for a *really* big organization, we are on Premium Capacity and have to work with millions of records each data. Obviously we also have many teams working on this data, but for different purposes and departments. This brings me to the problem we always have with Dataset and currently with Dataflows too.

            We all end up loading the same set of data again and again on various Workspaces (Dataflow) and Reports (Dataset)!

            Solution: Why not allow an Organization with say, Premium Capacity,…

                • Intervjuer

                  Hej, det vore grymt om man kunde under fliken intervjuer se vilka av dessa intervjuande kandidater som sedan blivit tillsatta. Exempel:

                  Januari: 39 intervjuer totalt i ett team. Då vore en ruta/kolumn intill med texten filled/rejected osv vara väldigt värdefullt, särskilt för TM/OPS att följa upp. Vad händer dvs med kandidaterna.

                  • Dataflows from Native Oracle Query

                    Just like Native SQL Queries are supported in Dataflows we need to have this for Oracle also. It will increase the performance of the dataflow.

                    • Disable linked entities

                      Right now if you link an entity from dataflow A to dataflow B to use in further calculations, you cannot disable the load of the entity.

                      This idea is to allow linked entities used for calculations to be disabled in child dataflows.

                      We are using a master dataflow with child dataflows to filter out data to specific groups of people, giving the effect of row level security by putting those dataflows in their own workspaces. Without being able to disable the master dataflow's entities in the child dataflows, the child dataflows have all of the data, defeating the purpose. The…

                          • Append and merge dataflows

                            Dataflows are great and many models will need / benefit from being adapted to dataflows.
                            I have tried to do this on a reasonable one, which mainly deals with Excel files either individually or as part of a share point folder and a few functions.
                            All is fine up to any Append or Merge of dataflows in my queries: this implies a premium account.

                            While I agree that ultimately Microsoft has to make money, there is a huge gap when going from a few pro versions to the first level of premium, an order of magnitude of 1 to 100…

                            • Include/Share Measures as part of dataflow

                              Currently within a dataflow you can create calculated columns that will be included when you connect to it. However, if I have a complex measure that is specific to a particular data source (or "entity") it would be great if this measure was also included whenever someone connected to the dataflow. Otherwise I have to send them the DAX for the measure and if I change the calculation I can easily forget to send them the update

                              • dataflow - Row Level Security (RLS)

                                Dataflows look to have a lot of potential, but without having RLS, it is hard to deploy Use Case: we have global data that we want to deploy a standard set of entities for analyst around the globe to use for consistent reporting (i.e. 1 version of the truth). without RLS, when i share the entity the regions will see all the global data (which they are not allowed to see).

                                    Currently, it is possible to input data using 'Blank Table' in dataflow but it is not possible to alter this data after it.
                                    Please make this functionality possible so it can be used as a simplified 'Master Data' platform for simple lists.

                                    • Keep null values in text data types for dataflows

                                      When pulling null values from a text data types in a dataflow it currently pull blank text string rather than a null. This is meaning a transform is then required in the dataset to transform it back to a null. This creates a few issues, 1) if the data requires a differentiation between a null and a blank it is impossible to get this value back (unless a secondary column to indicate the nulls) 2) means that an analyst needs to remember to transform the column in the every dataset it is used 3) if a dax formula is used…

                                      • BigQuery as Dataflows source

                                        Please add BigQuery as online data source, with native API calls to leverage Cloud-to-Cloud transfers.

                                        Current workaround is cumbersome and inefficient as result data flows through locally: Dataflows ODBC data source -> Gateway to Simba's ODBC driver -> records from BigQuery.

                                        • View lake size for dataflows in PRO account

                                          Currently there is no way to grasp the total lake size used inside a Pro account.
                                          Please provide some metrics on lake utilization.
