  1. Customize order of filters in pane

    The default order for the filters looks to be the “Filters on this page” first, followed by “Filters on all pages.” For my report use, it would look better visually if the order of the filter types in the pane could be changed, so a user could have the "Filters on all pages" appear at the top of the pane if desired.

  2. Allow bookmarks in the new Navigation Pane

    The new Navigation Pane for Apps is great. Would be much more useful if it could also list bookmarks in addition to pages and URLs.

  3. Drill through to another report refresh with Live connection

    Currently the drill through functionality to another report doesn´t seem to work correctly for Live connections. The first time works, but when going back and changing the drill through, the target report doesn´t refresh automatically. This is confusing for end users, because you don´t always realize that the data have not been refreshed. The Power BI support team acknowledged this problem and proposed I create a ticket in the "Idea" category. It seems more like a bug to me then anything else, but hereby the idea to make the drill through to another report functionality always refresh the target report…

    We’ve fixed this issue now and are rolling out the fix this week. If you don’t see it working yet, you should see it by next week.

  4. Allow New App Workspaces to be found in Microsoft Teams

    The app workspaces don’t seem to work with Microsoft teams when you try to embed a report. In Microsoft teams I can embed a Power Bi Report. When I try to do so it only finds Workspaces that are the old version but when I create a "NEW" app workspace and then publish reports to that workspace, I can't embed these. Do they plan on fixing this?

  5. Change order of filters in filter pane

    I love the new filter experience, much better. It would be great if the filters in the filter pane could be ordered by the author.
    At times there are filters that have a natural hierarchy (Region/Plant; Manager/Employee) and presenting them in the wrong sequence causes the users to become confused.

  8. Add Report Page Tooltips to Publish to Web

    Report Page Tooltips added in Mar 2018 is a fantastic feature, however they don't appear when a report is shared using the "Publish to Web" functionality.

    Apart from the fact, it's not included as a limitation in the documentation, it's a real shame not to be able to use this feature in publicly available reports.

  11. Expose tab order as a property of visuals for keyboard navigation

    Users that consume Power BI reports with keyboard navigation (including screen readers) can tab through the visuals on a report page, but the tab order seems to be the order in which the visual was placed on the page by the report designer. So if I make a page and put two charts on the bottom row, a title text box at the top left, and a table on the top row, that is the tab order. I would like to be able to change a property to make the tab order go from title to table to chart 1…

  12. Eyeball Control on Bookmarks in Bookmark Panel

    A way to show/hide the bookmark in the bookmark panel so that when the user is walking through the bookmarks in "presentation" mode, they can choose whether certain bookmarks are part of the "slide deck" or not.

  14. Send Elements to the Background

    It would be a great Feature to send objetcs (Filters, Images, Textboxes) "to the background". I often strugle with overlaping elements and their activation and it would be a good improvement to just send them to the background. Especially for slicers I don't need the upcoming status bar for "Focus Mode" or "more Options", it should just slice. I want an "option-out" for the grey bar on the top.

  15. Personalized Bookmarks

    The current bookmarking feature requires report creators to define bookmarks. Ideally, users would be able to save personalized bookmarks (similar to web browser) in addition to the author's pre-defined bookmarks.

    For example, I might have a project management report or sales by stores. Each user of the report may have their own set of projects or stores that they want to quickly navigate between. These are relevant to the current users and not other users of the reports.

  16. Drill through that considers slicer/filter context of a parent visual

    The current drill through capability does not appear to consider an active filter/slicer value for a visual unless the dimension being filtered is included in the parent visual. I think it would be helpful if it did.

    For example; a table of customers subject to a slicer for specific stores should pass on both the customer and store values if these dimensions are both listed as drill through filters.

  17. Include report filters in Drillthrough action

    As much as I like the new Drillthrough actions, it seems a bit lacking in that it does not also pass through any report filters that are active on the source report on the source report.

  18. Customization of Phone Layout for reports in Power BI Service

    Currently "Phone Layout" feature is available in Power BI Desktop. It would be nice to have the same feature available for new or existing Reports in a Power BI Service (web designer).

  19. Conditional formatting for the text/values not only background

    Please enable the developers to not only be able to conditionally format the cell background but also the text, which should be independent of the background conditional formatting.
