  1. Option to truncate in-memory data before publish

    We use scheduled refresh on all our reports in PBI Service. Therefore, after publishing a report the first thing that happens is that the report will be refreshed. Hence it's not really any point to upload all the in-memory data in the publish step. This is rather an issue since it takes quite long time to publish large reports. Therefore it would be great with an option to publish the report without data.

  5. You can never select multiple buttons! If you don't believe it, try it yourself!

    You can never select multiple buttons because when you press Ctrl + mouse click two buttons, you will "click" that button. Please fix it as soon as possible.

  6. Feature for Automatically updating Power BI Desktop

    When ever updates are available let us opt in or opt out. So power bi desktop can download and install the latest update when ever available.

    Thanks!

  7. Option to Open Data and Model in New Window

    PBI Desktop has three main screens, Report, Data, and Model. It would be very useful to be able to open the Data or Model screens in a new window rather than paging over to it when selected.

    When developing visualizations, and especially when dealing with many multiples of data-sets with dozens of source columns and then additional calculated columns, it is easy to loose track of which data is in each column. Being able to work on a visualization while having the data open in another window rather than flipping back and forth would make things much easier.

  8. Scatter Chart - data colors reverted to default when Play Axis in use

    Customized data colors reverts to default when Play Axis is in use and there is not option to assign colors. But once the data field in the play axis is removed the Format Data Color option is available again. This is PBI Desktop on premise, not sure if the same is happening for those who use the cloud or Azure.

  9. add data label to map

    You should be able to show a label of your choice on the maps - i.e. a data value like "count of instances in a country", or a category, e.g. if you want to label with something different.

  10. Editing interactions between bookmarks

    Similar to how you can edit interactions between slicers and visuals, it would be great to be able to edit interactions between bookmarks. For example, say I have 3 different bookmarks that show my visuals filtered to 3 different lines of business. And lets say I want to add a button that I am able to show more hidden filters sitting on a shape on the page itself (rather than going to the filters bar on the right side of the page). If I want this "Show More Filters" button to work with my bookmarks, I need to duplicate the…

  11. Conditional formatting to Bar chart with multiple measures

    In a Bar chart with single measure, I can see Advanced controls option to apply conditional formatting.
    But when I drag multiple measures, advanced controls option is getting disappeared and unable to apply conditional formatting.
    It would be great if we can have conditional formatting to multiple measures in bar graph.

    Thanks.

  14. Filter Pane Text Size

    Hi,

    In the April 2019 Feature Summary, it states "To maintain proportion between the report page and the filter pane, the new filter pane will now scale with the report page and visuals."

    That's good, but the report pages/visuals are adjustable, while it appears that the Filter Text size is not adjustable. The width of the filter pane can be adjusted, but the size of the text does not update with it.

    Please consider the width of the Filter Pane and adjust the size of the filter text accordingly.

    Thanks!
    Nathan Peterson

  15. Ability to Import/Export DAX formula for a dataset

    Multiple team members working on a complex report (multiple pages) need to keep track of any changes made by other team members to the existing calculated measures/columns formulas (DAX). If there is an option to import dax formula for a dataset from a file (which the team may place on some version control) then it will be easy to keep track of any changes happening to the measures. Requesting ability to connect to a file for all calculated measures/columns for a dataset.

  16. Rename Justifying Center to Middle

    Truly when justifying something, the term center should be reserved for only 1 type of justification. Middle is just that, mid way between left and right. But center is specifically the mid way between left, right, top, and bottom. So when justifying bottom center doesn't make sense; bottom middle does.

  17. "Hover" Filter Action on Charts

    Currently we have filters on views like "Cross-highlighting" & "highlighting", both will work on clicking on the chart area.

    Requesting you to add/enable "Hover" filter action along with above two filter actions. this will be more interactive without clicking on the chart.

  18. It is useless tool if we are not having Crosstab report direct how tableau and cognos had. For any Analytics tool Crosstab is heart .

    I am not having idea but i can tell you better you modify your matrix report how we can use as Crosstab report how we use in Tableau and Cognos. As it is the heart of the Analytics tools. If you don't simplify it is useless using this tool.

  20. Reset sorting on visuals

    Hi, There should be an option to reset the sorting on the visual. Sometimes we might accidentally click the column header while trying to get a particular visual "in-focus" and this is resulting to sort the visual on that column. So, we want an option to reset this sorting. Also, the icon used to indicate the sort direction doesn't look good when presenting the visuals. Can we have an option to disable this?
