  1. Export underlying and summarized data only for the portion of the visualization that is highlighted/selected

    We want the ability to export underlying data as well as summarized data which represents the part of the visualization which is highlighted. For example, If I click on a slice of a pie chart and click on export, I should be able to export the data that belongs to the selected slice.

    • Visual Filter Exclude Rows

      If you have a list of rows with values in columns A,B and C. Be able to exclude rows based on values within those columns. For example. Row x has values in A,B and C. I want to be able to filter out column B so that rows with values in it are excluded even though they have values in other columns

      • De-selecting data points : We need a button to de-select data that was selected via point and click.

        We need a button to de-select data that was selected via point and click.
        After resetting the slicers to "ALL" , the point and click selection is stuck and I need a button to clear.

        • legend sorting, let there be options like value or alphabet! Please!!

          It would be super if there was a drop down option in the legend visualization where you could right click and have options to either sort by alphabetical or sort by values, or sort by custom and you could manually rearrange how you want your legend to sort. This is a must! We need this please!!

            • "View as" user

              Should be something easy to see what the user/role can see in the dashboard or report.

              • Working together

                Hello. I’m a Program Manager for a state in the us and I have worked in the private side before this role. For the past several months, I noticed a lapse in data management, reporting, and analysis. I enjoyed the luxury of visuals, dashboards, and so forth in my prior roles. Here, I need to build them from scratch.

                As I got familiar with BI, I thought to seek for additional help to speed up my process. I’m interested in collaboration and learning and building reports and so forth. Hope we all can learn and understand the challenges and opportunities…

                • Dynamic Scatter Plots

                  I wanted to create dynamic scatter plots and it can be quite a task in Tableau. I am not sure if this exists but my idea is to develop a functionality where a user can chose different variables for X and Y axis.

                    • Improvement required on searching the font family and other options under FORMAT TAB

                      searchable options need to improve under format tab.suppose by default font is Segoe UI but i need to use Arial which everytime i need to use my mouse and search that font.. I think improvement is required if user use the keyboard and press "A" then all the font starting from "A" should come and just use up and down arrow key ..and then use that required font .. This improvement is required.

                            • Mapping features

                              I use Desktop version for geographic visualization. I think it would benefit to display visual filters on the map itself and lock the display so it will shows as comment on the map.

                              • Column 'Field Formatting' to include Gridlines

                                For tables, the ability to format a selected field in isolation is great - however, it would be really good if you could also choose where the gridlines go also.
                                The ability to outline a particular column in a table for example

                                • Dashboards Authoring in PowerBi Desktop

                                  I have a few clients who would love to have the ability to create the same dashboard for reports using the "Same Reports"(different Files), but Partitioned Data Sets.

                                  If we had the ability to create the Dashboard in the PowerBi Desktop i would be able to build the Dashboard and publish for each of them without having to rebuild the dashboard for each report file. also right now there is an issue with Pining of the visual this would allow us to fix the issue as i could remove the whole thing and republish it.

                                  • Expand a column containing a related table

                                    Is was good, for example, to have a fact table and a fact agg table, and create a visual with table where in the fact table agg have a column to expand the columns we want in the fact table

                                    (like a drill trough but for another table)

                                      • Add auto align feature

                                        Add an auto-align feature like Visio has where you can quickly throw all your objects on the page and then it tidies it all up for you automatically instead of having to manually align x,y and height width of every box you put on dashboard. It doesn't always get it right but its a huge start.

                                        • Date Slicer Filtering or Hierarchy Slicer Improvement.

                                          I would like to be able to use the slicer to filter by year and month, while being able to display as a drop down list.

                                          Current slicer only filters by year. It would be helpful to be able to use the date hierarchy to be able to select a year and drill down to select a particular month.

                                          The hierarchy slicer does this, but does not have the option to convert into a drop down list.

                                          So fixing one of these would solve the issue.

                                          Thanks
