  3. Direct labeling

    It would be great if there would be an extra option available for Legend under Position, called Direct. This would enable direct labeling a line or bar chart.

    With direct labeling I mean removing the traditional legend and placing the category text directly near the line of bar.

    An example can be found here:

  4. don't steal focus

    Desktop should not steal focus after login, resume, screen layout change, etc.. If minimized, it should stay minimized until I say otherwise.

  5. Make it so the filter pane always appears on its own

    Depending on what file I open sometimes visual filters still appear under the visualizations pane.

  6. Group Tables in Report View

    We have the ability to Group tables and everything else within Query Editor. Even some grouping ability within Relationship view.

    Currently the only sorting that occurs outside of the alphabet is your Measures tables go to the top.

    Please add the ability to Group together Tables within the Report View of Desktop. It would be much easier to organize a data model that doesn't sort by alphabet no matter if it is a dimension, fact, or intermediate table.

  8. Enable conditional formatting for Legends and Column Series

    Conditional formatting is only possible in the charts where legends or Columns series is not enabled on a chart.
    Extending conditional formatting option for legends and column series in Stacked charts would be handy. There are uses cases for this.

  9. Continuous date should use end-of-period as the default

    When the x-axis is a continuous date, BI Desktop defaults to show Jan 1 and July 1. This runs counter to typical business charts, which utilize end-of-period dates (June 30 and Dec 31, for example). This distinction is especially important when looking at year-end data. If the chart scales to only show years, then the data hovering over the 2019 label will be Dec 31, 2018. This is very confusing to readers of the visualization.

  10. Option to remove K when showing data as thousand

    It would be useful to have the option to show/hide the "K" when showing data in thousands. The same applies for million, billions etc as well.

    If you have report with all the data in thousands it is only messy to see the K behind every figure. Instead you can create a textbox showing that all data is in thousands.

  11. highlight applied filter

    With multiple slicers on a report page it is currently not possible to quickly see which slicers have a value selected.

    It would be great to have the ability to change the color of the slicer background or the background color of the slicer items. (Default state, Selected state)

    This would help the consumer of the report to very quickly see which filters have been applied and which still can be applied.

  13. Bring Back Gateway Selection when uploading from Power BI Desktop

    Prior to the June 2019 version of Power BI Desktop, it was possible to select a data gateway when publishing a report from Power BI Desktop.

    The workflow went as follows:

    1) Author Report in Power BI Desktop, with connection to data source accessible via gateway.

    2) Log in to the relevant Power BI account in Power BI Desktop

    3) 'Publish' the report from Power BI Desktop

    4) During the Publish process: If there was more than one gateway that could access the given data-source, a dialogue would appear allowing you to choose the gateway to use. This is now…

  14. Force the Tachometer to disapear when the data set is Blank

    Hi,

    I would like to find a neat way to remove my Tachometer visual in my page view when the data is blank. Right now I have defined some measures using pie chart to show blank and hide the different parts of my Tachometer but was wondering how it is possible to remove the whole Tachometer visual when data is blank or zero?

    I have 9 Tachometers in my Page view report. It is impossible now as per the support team replied so they suggested me to post it as a new idea. Hope you community like it and upvote

    The other thread requesting this feature indicates completed, but there are a number of other comments indicating that the fix isn't applied to all built in visuals. - please vote up this idea to get the other visuals fixed as well.

  16. Fix scroll bars in relationship view

    In the Relationship view, If you zoom in using the mouse wheel and shift, or the zoom slider, the scroll bars to the side and bottom of the view are lost, and the diagram move off of the visible area.
    This should be enabled in conjunction with a fix for panning and selecting in the relationship view https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/37891429-hand-tool-for-relationship-view

  17. Hand tool for Relationship view

    Provide a 'hand' tool when in the relationship view, when you hover over any whitespace between tables and relationship.

    This would enable you to pan round the diagram, as well as move tables if you hover over them, when the select arrow would be shown.

    This should be enabled in conjunction with a fix for the relationship view which loses the scroll bars when you zoom in.

  18. Ability to color PBIX tabs - just like in Excel. We can logically group the <tabs> this way, and uses will interpret Subject Areas easily.

    Ability to format-color PBIX tabs - just like in Excel. We can then logically group the <tabs> this way, and uses will interpret Subject Areas easily.

    * Currently, all tabs appears a gray, users don't even know more than one-tab exists. Which ones are "Financials", which ones are "Operational", difficult to interpret. Very confusing. Please implement this suggestion of format-color-tabs, will be great help.

  19. PowerBI Desktop - Simultaneous views

    Allow the possibility to split the 3 views:

    1) report view

    2) data view

    3) relationships view

    Often, like other colleagues, I work with 2 or 3 monitors; it would be convenient to work on the report view on a monitor, check the relations on another monitor and check the data on another monitor. Practically work simultaneously with the 3 view modes.

  20. Add Query Designer same as Report Builder natively in Power BI Desktop

    Report Builder has functionality to provide a report designer with the ability to write and handle DAX related queries. Furthermore, Report Builder can do the heavy lifting by using the GUI to design the DAX query instead of hand coding the DAX details. Please add this feature natively in Power BI Desktop with the ability to save the DAX query to the same dataset.
