  1. Option to restrict mode of connection

    For certain data sources, it would be good to restrict the mode of connection (Import/Direct/Live). This is to enforce governance on managed data sources.

  3. Shared Dataset Description should have the option to be a file

    With shared and certified datasets now released, the need for documentation with these datasets is evident. There is a description box for shared datasets, but I believe there should be an option to upload a document in the description box, as the file could contain detailed descriptions for how best to use the dataset.

  4. User input for Python script as Data Source

    Something that would be great, is to be able to use a python script as a data source, asking to the user to enter inputs.
    To give an example, to show data on a specific date entered by the user, knowing that the date is asked by a usual python script.

  8. odata group by

    Querying Odata from Power BI (Version: 2.70.5494.761 64-bit (june 2019.)) does not fold when you do Group by and Sum.

    Example:
    let
    Source = OData.Feed("http://services.odata.org/northwind/northwind.svc/"),
    Order_Details_table = Source{[Name="Order_Details",Signature="table"]}[Data],
    GroupedRows = Table.Group(Order_Details_table, {"OrderID"}, {{"Count", each List.Sum([Quantity]), type number}})
    in
    GroupedRows

    It recives all the rows

  9. Power bi com google planilhas

    Prezados, boa tarde, seria ótimo se fosse possível conectar o power bi com o google planilhas sem necessidade de tornar a planilha pública, coisa que já acontece tranquilamente no tableau, onde eu logo com meu email do google e consigo escolher a planilha que quero conectar.

  10. Make getting data from a folder containing Excel workbooks simple

    I am an instructor who teaches students to use Power BI. There is often a need to import multiple Excel workbooks from a folder, but the fact that Power BI does not automatically or programmatically combine the Excel workbooks that have the same structure without throwing one error or another is quite shocking to me.

    Currently, the only method that works is adding a column containing =Excel.CurrentWorbkook([Content]) and expanding/combining, but I would sure think Power BI could do that for the user without the user having to mess with all those steps.

  12. SAP query editor, technical name are not visible

    SAP Technical names (for attributes) are not visible when modifying query in in the Query Settings panel (SAp BW/ SAP BW4/Hana connection). They are only visible when creating new connection, which makes changes very cumbersome.

  13. Multiple files from OneDrive

    Create a multi-upload function from OneDrive Business (OneDrive.Files) similar to the Folder.Files and SharePoint.Files functions. For web Power BI.

  14. UTC Arizona Time Should not have daylight savings time in calculation for scheduled refresh

    Arizona Time in scheduled refresh is calculating daylight savings time which we do not observe in Arizona - thus - my report is attempting to update at the wrong time as Arizona is currently on pacific time, not mountain time. Power BI scheduled refresh should be able to have a choice to not observe daylight savings time

  18. Web data with filters

    There are many pages where data is presented in tables, however there doesn't seem to be a change in the URL when filters are applied. For example if you visit https://www.premierleague.com/stats/top/players/goals and try to pull this into Power BI, it defaults to only being able to access the "all time top scorers". There is a "web view" during the import process and it would be great if we could actually interact with that web view to alter the filters, which updates the table 0 dataset.

  20. sendgrid

    In the SendGrid Content Pack please include suppression details (bounces, blocks, invalid address, spam reports and unsubscribes). In particular there is no way to drill down into the details of each event to find information such as the specific email, reason for bounce or blocking IP.
