  1. Multiple Popup appears for each textbox selected

    Multiple Popup appears for each textbox selected.

    This is very annoying to see multiple popup appear one over another when you want to format all text box to same formatting. For example I would like to change font color to red for 10 text boxes in my report and I selcted all text boxes and powerbi showing 10 popup and some popup hiding another popup which is very annoying. There should be unified popup for all text boxes and user should be able to selcted formatting setting in only one popup not all.

  2. improve the update logic on slicers

    Current power bi does not auto-sync and changes selection so it displays previous items on your filters.

    Enable other filters on your records not trigger the update on your slicers.

    AFAIK, it only updates when you 'focus' on and try to interact with this filter and review detailed items.

    More info here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Slicer-Selected-month-is-different-from-displayed-month/m-p/883612#M423440

  3. Conditional Formatting Drill-through Option like Web URL

    Current right click requirement of drill through makes it hard to teach end users (especially executives, and especially in mobile) It can be very useful to have drill through function on table, matrix or other charts very similar to web URL conditional formatting recently released.

  5. Allow users to set Shape Width/Height below 40 in Width/Height Well

    Power BI will let you manually size shapes down to 14 x 14. But if you try to use the Width/Height well to change size, it won't let you go below 40 if you're above, and won't let you go up from < 40 if you're below.

    There are very good reasons why we might want to go down to 14 or even lower, as per this Twitter thread:

  6. Visuals: Add/remove individual item(s) to/from the selected Group. (NOT MERGE)

    Currently you can merge two groups of items on the canvas, but you can't add/remove items that aren't already grouped from a current group.

    If I group say 10 items, and later want to add another single item, I currently have to ungroup, then regroup. I would like to select an item and the group I want it in, and click "Add to Group".

  7. Give us a Name Box in the ribbon to name objects on the canvas easier (like Excel has)

    I think a VERY good habit to get in to when creating #PowerBI reports is to name every object on the canvas using the Selection Pane. And where you can, use a naming convention. (Sometimes you can't...e.g. names here are also used by Chart Titles).

    You know what would make this soo much easier @MSPowerBI? A name box in the ribbon, like #Excel has. That would put object naming into my development 'flow'. Having to remember to bring up the Selection pane to rename things I've copied is pane pain.

    See this thread on Twitter for an example: https://twitter.com/InsightsMachine/status/1221545927363592192

  8. Taskpanes in ribbon

    In stead of expanding the taskpanes on the right side in desktop, build them in the ribbon. Now you loose a lot of space.
    Like, bookmarks, properties, analyse, slicer 3d etc etc

  9. Color saturation on Shape Map without using Json

    I need to use a color saturation on cities, but importing a 20mo Json (36.000 cities) as Custom map makes Power BI freezing like hell !
    When default color is set, the navigation isn't working anymore, neither the zoom.

    Why can't we use Color saturation natively on standard map, base on zip code or city name ?

  10. Align tables in model view

    Hello,
    It would be great to be able to align table in the model view, like in Visual Studio for the SSIS part, in Format, then Align there are several options :
    - Lefts
    - Centers
    - Rights
    - Tops
    - Middles
    - Bottoms

    This will make the diagram way more easy to read.

  11. Fix Roku error code 003

    Roku is a streaming device that is developed to stream videos, music and TV shows from anywhere. In the Roku device, there are many free channels and subscription channels. In the Roku device, first of all, you have to be download the media content before start streaming and then it can be viewed. You can also run Roku by using the software on any other device.

  12. [PowerQuery] Filter column dynamically by MAX value in that column from the UI

    Wouldn't it be cool if a mere mortal could filter a column by the maximum value in that column dynamically right from the Number Filters menu via the trangular drop down button at the top of each column in PQ.

    This is a fairly common requirement among clicky clicky draggy droppy types, and while yes this can be accomplished with PowerQuery functions, it would be great if it can also be accomplished by the 99.998% of users that don't want to get M on their hands.

  13. Extract numbers/text from string option in PowerQuery UI

    I wish there was an option in the PowerQuery UI to extract either numbers or text from a string. This is a fairly common requirement among clicky clicky draggy droppy types, and while yes this can be accomplished with PowerQuery functions, it would be great if it can also be accomplished by the 99.998% of users that don't want to get M on their hands.

  14. Customizable Auto Date hierarchy

    The auto-generated date hierarchy is often useless for datetime values going into certain time periods. Weeks, hours, minutes, seconds etc. Making a lot of extra work setting up relevant hierarchies which, in my experience, don't work as smoothly as the auto-generated ones currently do.

    Being able to customise which time periods are included would be a welcome improvement

  16. Provide a formatting option to flip the display axes of a table or matrix

    Pivot tables only work on one column at a time. Let the user simply toggle an option for a table or matrix to invert/flip the display, so that instead of displaying Months of the Year as the rows, for example, I can show Jan - Feb - March ... across the top of the table. Tableau can do this!

  17. Allow guest users to publish from Desktop to Service

    It's great that we can now give guests from our parent company (different Azure) Pro licenses in our Power BI tenant.

    Sadly the issue now is that of course they cannot publish from Power BI Desktop to our Service using their account / guest user.

    I see this is currently by design but we really need this in place to continue our workflow as we currently do (they have to use second accounts in our domain currently).

  18. Conditionally/Dynamically assign Bookmarks to Buttons

    Extend the Conditional expression for the Action property of the Button to dynamically assign bookmarks based on user roles (effective username) or user selection (selected slicer value). This will enable more options for reporting. Please add. Thanks

  19. Portrait Layout with Export to PDF

    It would be helpful to be able to design a report in portrait mode as part of a dashboard and have a tool like the Mobile/Tablet Design section which will allow you to build PDF Layouts of the dashboard for exporting as PDF Reports for when certain visuals need to also be presented outside of Power BI as a lot of what is generate on dashboards sometimes needs to be presented to people without the ability to access Power BI e.g external clients. Plus it's nice to maintain consistency in design and layout for printed reports Vs what they see…
