  1. Shade background area for a range on charts

    It would be great if we could block-mark or shade areas of charts with notes for when an event has happened that has affected the data. For example, I'd like to be able to shade the background of my chart with a comment an area of my chart where the date range falls within the period the country was under Covid-19 lockdown. This could be included within the analytics settings along with the constant line, average line, etc

  2. Allow user to choose color of selected item in slicer list view

    Allow user to choose color of selected item in slicer list view. A user can currently select the background color of items under Format->Items. However, a user can't set the color of the selected item. It is always black. I'd like to see the ability to set the selected item's color independent of the background color of the unselected items.

  3. Serial No in Visual Table

    In Power BI Table and Matrix visual, there is a need for an option to add a serial no. This is pretty useful to refer to which record number people are looking at. User can use Rank, but they might not have a unique rank always

  4. Let the Menu Interface work with Nested Tables

    Currently we can use Power Query menu options to do lots of things in PBI Desktop without having to know M Code. This has been a huge help in advancing the popularity of PBI Desktop. My suggestion is to expand this ability to nested tables. After performing a Nested Join or Group By, many times you end up with a Table Column that you need to add a field to like an index, or filter it to a max value, or several other things BEFORE expanding the column. The M Code to do these operations is not as straight forward…

  5. Multi-lingual Reports

    Hello,
    I would be great if we have multi-lingual translation in Power BI.
    Lets say like we have a option to choose the language in every page of the report.
    Initially we develop the report in English language,but when we choose the language like in some slicer or any filter, the entire report is translated automatically into that particular language, including the data, column headers,calculated columns & their names, measure& their names, tooltips etc...

  6. Reorder columns in Data Preview

    It should be able to ley us reorganize the table in the order we want, not in the order we create de colums, in development work, new columns appear all the time and they are related to colums that are like in the middle center of the table, but to compare results in the data view i have to put my finger in the screen and travel all the way to de end to see the other one i need, just like Excel 1997... please give us the joy to be able to organize our own bases!

  7. When you say apply or discard changes - actually allow the user to do so!

    My report is ruined. I have to start from scratch as I can't do anything without getting apply/discard alert. Apply doesn't do anything, and there is NO DISCARD in the UI. Terrible bug.

  9. Redesign the Bookmarks UI

    Bookmarks are a nice feature to have and can enable some nice scenarios for the benefit of end users.

    The people who don't benefit... report designers.

    Can you reconsider the bookmarks designer user interface please?

    It has got to the point where it is essentially unusable as soon as you have configured one. You cannot easily see what is linked to a bookmark - the way in which you update them is a complete mystery (you only know if you got it right by testing it repeatedly), and maintaining a report with multiple bookmarks, visibility states, page transitions, data... and…

  10. Slicer reference in DAX formulas

    In Excel Cube formulas we can reference a specific slicer when building a calculation, I'd like parameters added to DAX formulas that allow connection to a specific slicer

    e.g. SELECTEDVALUE(Table[column], 0, SLICER1 )

    This way a slicer could be used for a specific purpose in the UI.

    example scenario:

    A accountant wants to provide an expense report to customer but each customer has the same data set but a different "set" of expense account codes:

    with this the accountant could provide a slicer on the UI and train users to "select" their set of account codes for expenses via a…

  11. Defined the name of the report after click the publish button

    When I have the multiple users use the powerbi as a script to do some research, they will publish the finial result to PowerBi web for sharing the result.
    In this case, if the action of rename the dataset is after publish, they might overwrite other's dataset(Cause they use the same PBIX file).
    Is there a possibility that when the user click the publish button, there will pop up a input box for them to enter the name of the report.(default value of the input box is the file name of PBIX file)

  12. Desktop Visualization's Hide for easy Access to Formatting Options

    Please give an option to Hide or Collapse the below shown Visualizations Pane(in ^ direction).From a developer's point of view, in most of the cases we choose a Visual (once or at a single time) and the format the different things in it(Title, Axis, Data Labels, Data Colors, Conditional Formatting). It would be a little easy if we can see all the Format Options when the visual is selected, if needed we can Expand and choose another Visual as per the need. As there are more options in the Format Tab it makes good sense if we can hide the…

  13. "Include in report refresh" doesn't work when query is referenced

    Unchecking "Include in report refresh" is supposed to stop refreshing the query, yet if you reference that query in another query (something you'd do if you wanted to hold a local cache of the static data not to be refreshed), it disregards the setting and refreshes it again. Clearly a bug. Please fix.

    Here's another mention of this from https://www.thebiccountant.com/2017/01/11/incremental-load-in-powerbi-using-dax-union/: "...unintuitive behaviour of queries which have been set to “Don’t include in Report Refresh”: As a standalone-query, they will behave as expected and not refresh. But once you reference them by a separate query or within an append-operation, they…

  14. Change the name of the Fields pane

    Change the name of the Fields pane to something like "Fields List", or something that produces less confusion, as there is the Fields area in the Visualizations pane also.

    Or, change the mouseover name of the Fields button in the Visualizations pane to "Visualization Fields".

  16. Configuração da Escala Coluna Y

    No gráfico de colunas agrupadas e linha (talvez se aplique a outros também) seria interessante ter a opção de configurar a escala dos valores da coluna Y. Por exemplo, num range de 0 a 100 eu gostaria que o gráfico exibisse linha de grade de 5 em 5.
    0 -5 -10 -15 -20 -25...

    In the grouped columns and row chart (maybe apply to others as well) it would be interesting to have the option to set the scale of the values of column Y. For example, in a range from 0 to 100 I'd like the chart to display…

  18. Parameters to bring on to report page like any other slicer

    Hi,

    As of now though the parameters are created, they cannot be efficiently used. User has to go to Transform Data and then edit the values.

    Make the Parameters flexible available like any other visual or slicer to place it on the report page itself instead of navigating to some location to change the values.

    Also make it more flexible to use it in the measures and column calculations.

  20. External Advanced Editor

    The Advanced Editor is very limited. Perhaps it is a good idea to let people use their own preferred editor, for example Notepad++ or Visual Studio Code.
