  1. Capacity Refresh Schedule Export

    Please add an export option to the Capacity Settings Refresh Schedule from the Admin portal menu.

    Currently a scheduled refresh time can be selected and a detail window displays everything that is scheduled during that time. We would like to be able to export the list posted in this window.

  2. Create a new Power BI version between Pro and Premiu

    Create a ‘Premium’ light for smaller companies- for whom the $60k is too high if you have fewer users.

    There’s lots of companies that can’t take advantage of the many Premium features- not because they don’t want to pay - but because they are just smaller companies.

    Hope Microsoft can provide full functionality for smaller companies.

  3. Deployment pipelines to support dataflows

    Deployment pipelines do not currently support Dataflows. In our organisation, we want to carefully govern a particular workspace which will contain the common dataflows which people want to use in many reports (e.g. a dates table, a list of active employees (GDPR permitting, etc).

    Deployment pipelines will enable us to put the right governance in place for Dataflows.

  4. Adjust paramater display size

    The parameter width is fine when viewed in Power BI report builder, but when saved to the power bi service, the parameter width is very small. When looking through many options there is a tool tip, but it would be nice adjust the viewable width of the parameters.

  5. Create Multiple Apps per Workspace

    Recreating this idea, since the previous version seems to have been deleted.

    One app per workspace is extremely limiting in large organizations, where many different subsets of reports need to be shared with different users. One example: I have a collection of reports in an app. All need to be shared with management, but only some should be visible to non management. Currently, I would have to create multiple workspaces with duplicate reports to accomplish this. Using datasets across multiple workspaces does NOT fill this use case. An alternate solution might be to allow access restrictions for each report included…

  6. Dataset refresh should be dependent on Successful Dataflow refresh

    Dataset refresh should be dependent on Successful Dataflow refresh because if the Dataflow refresh is failed due to dependencies, Dataset Refresh is success without any data in it.

  9. Share Power BI Premium Capacity Monitor app

    I used to be able to share the Share Power BI Premium Capacity Monitor app report to other users. That option seems to have been removed as we were doing it before.

    As an enterprise we have several teams that need to be able to see the metrics but not necessarily need to be admins.

  11. capacity

    Admin of workspace that has access to assign Dedicated Premium Capacity when in workspace settings can see the name of assigned Capacity. Other members of workspace can see Dedicated Capacity is enabled but can't see the name it is assigned. Users without assign permissions need to be able to see which capacity is assigned mainly to know which region their data is stored.

    Default region is US but the capacity might be in West Europe.

  12. Premium with E5

    Microsoft sell E5 licences as enterprise ready but the bundled Power BI Pro is not an enterprise product. There are so many features only available with a premium licence that even with an E5 licence an organisation would need to buy aditional premium licences to actually deploy Power BI as an enterprise product.

  13. Requirement to create child datasets from a master dataset already present in Service.

    Intention: The primary intention is also to see how we can pass on the changes to child datasets created out of one primary dataset. This would make maintenance easier and one does not need to create datasets from scratch and assign to specific user groups.

    Use Case:
    For certain users, only certain dimensions of star schema must be available. The general knowledge is that we have to create 2 independent datasets and assign it to user groups. In this case, the maintenance becomes difficult as we have to update both the datasets for a change. If the dataset can be…

  18. Raise Awareness to end users

    Create template of a General Dashboard containing all Active Dashboards so the end-user can navigate and see if any of them are important/ relevant for them.

    This needs to contain a general description of each Dashboard and to mention the Business Owner so, if the access request is required it can be reached.

  19. Option to change the 30 day "soft delete" grace period to 60 days on Premium Workspaces

    We need the "soft delete" grace period extended to at least 60 days on Premium Workspaces.

    It would be nice if this was a configurable setting.

  20. Combined Nbr or refreshes/Nbr of queries & memory usage over time in capacity metrics

    It is good to see nbr of refreshes over time and nbr of queries over time but memory consumption is a result of both. Hence, a combined report in the capacity metrics app would give a good idea about moments where lots of refreshes are going on AND lots of querying is going on AND memory consumption is high.

    I created such report and it helped us a lot in 'moving' refreshes to more 'quiet' moments. I'm sure it can help other premium admins as well.
