  1. sort order legend

    Sort order of Legend label and bar chart order option:

    The legend is automatically set to show the first item at the bottom of a bar chart stack but show the first item at the top of the Legend label list.

    Please add an option in formatting the Legend so we can reverse the Legend label list. this would enable me to have the first item at the top of the bar chart stack with the first item at the top of the label list, thus the two match up.

    This idea is more specific than some similar Legend sort…

  4. Remove specific columns in a matrix but keep totals

    When creating a Matrix table with multiple value columns there are times when you would want to only show a total for one of value columns while keeping the other value columns with data. It would be useful to be able to turn off showing column data for specific columns and only show totals.

  6. Pin a tile that leads to another dashboard

    I would really like to be able to have a tile on dashboard A that would lead to dashboard B, then a tile on dashboard B would lead to a report

  7. View and use the published version from a PBI file without publishing?

    This version would facilitate the view and modifications of the dashboard before actually publishing it (which takes time)

  9. drop down for FY

    include a FY drop down. Currently we only see months over 3 fiscal years which makes it difficult, if you want a quick view on a given period

  12. Drill through column for Tables

    It would be very nice if we could add a button- or linkcolumn on a table to drill through the data row. Would be more intuitive for people then right-clicking.

  13. Comments and Section Access in PBI App

    Being able to add comments in your reports and dashboards is great on both entire report and visual level. PBI Apps are filtered based on who has access to the app, if @mention has not been granted access to the app, it would be nice for @mention to just receive a snapshot of the visual or report/dashboard concerned and be able to just comment/reply on that and not necessarily be able to see the entire report/dashboard.

  14. Filter wells by basin

    It would be useful to be able to filter wells in WellMaster by basin and/or sub-basin as filtering just by country produces an enormous number of wells in many cases. It should be possible to combine the geographic co-ordinates and the Equinor basin outlines to create such a filter.

  15. Scenario Building

    Not sure if this is possible on PBI currently. But I am using a forecasting model which I want to integrate with user free form inputs for setting up discount scenarios. I dont see how a user can plan some price discount scenarios and work with my model to show results.

  17. Unable to use row level security in On-Prem PowerBi when sharing Dashboard with external users

    Currently, we are unable to use row level security in Power BI when sharing dashboards with external users when Power BI is connected to an on premise SSAS model. The only workarounds provided by Microsoft are:

    Create mirror users for the external B2B users on your Active Directory instances, map the mirror users to the external users in the gateway, and then grant the required permissions to the SSAS cube to the mirror users.
    Move to Azure Analysis Services, where B2B is supported.

    We would like for Microsoft to provide an option to allow external users to access Power BI…

  18. Date Table

    Hi -

    I might be missing a very easy way to do this, but I couldn't find it online after multiple searches. You guys need to fix your date labeling in PowerBI. It is too complicated and has duplicative information.

    You should easily be able to jump and down from Year to Quarter to Month and have simplified labeling in the visualizations so that you're not repeating unnecessary info like showing the year 2x. For example, in a perfect world, i'd like to see:

    2018 / 2017 / 2016
    Q1-18 / Q2-18 / Q3 -18 / etc
    Jan-18 / Feb-18…
