  1. Allow more granular X-axis data points than labels with Date Hierarchy

    Line chart: X-Date Hierarchy, Y-Value will only display one aggregated data point per selected time granularity (e.g. Month). In order to display daily values, one has to expand all down to daily data on X-Axis, which renders too many labels (one per day) and hence is not practical.

    This works as expected when X is Date (instead of Date Hierarchy).

    We need the Date Hierarchy in order to compare data across years (Years in Legend) side by side on X, rather than continuous.

    Please enable more granular X-Axis Date points than labels with Date Hierarchy

  2. Increase scrollbar width on Fields pane in Desktop

    Since one of the more recent releases, the scrollbar in the Fields pane is almost not visible. I have a large number of fields in my report, and this makes it difficult to navigate my many tables. Could you please increase the width of this scrollbar so it is more visible?

  3. Use icons when y or x-axis is not starting on 0

    It would be great to set a icon on the x-asis or y-axis when it is not starting at 0 to make it more clear to the end-user.

    Check for an example: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Icon-on-y-axis-when-not-starting-on-0/m-p/995055/highlight/false#M472450

  4. Updating application

    Have a tick box to say "Update application (if available)" when publishing a report. Makes it a one step process then to update report and associated application.

  5. Dynamic Update for bookmarks

    Ability for dynamic update to bookmark setting for a field value.

    Below is an example

    I have reports where I use buttons along with bookmarks to display selected values for visuals. Example is current month value for certain business metrics.

    Each month, for the user to get the current month's month, I have to change the month slicer, update the bookmark and then publish the report.

    If there is way I can enable for the bookmark, the month slicer field should get the latest value. A way to specify fields than can be dynamically set for a book mark and…

  6. Reduzir o uso de recursos

    É absurdo o uso de memória dessa aplicação. A Aplicação parada sem fazer nada já usa 1 GB de RAM, quando começo a trabalhar tem vezes que chega a 4 GB. Pelo amor de Deus, falam algo mais otimizado, pois pelo propósito da aplicação, n]ao justifica a quantidade de recurso. Melhorem o código de vocês.

  7. Update slicers when changing RLS

    Slicers don't update correctly when using RLS. They show the default value on slicer althought it does not exist for that RLS.

  9. Warn of untyped columns

    When you are working in the Power BI desktop, it is much more forgiving of leaving columns as type "any". However, I've had issues where I don't realize I have a column that is not typed, and when I publish to the service and try to refresh the dataset, it throws an error that doesn't really tell me what the issue was. It would be really helpful for Power BI to warn you that you have an untyped column that is going to be an issue OR at least provide a better error when the refresh fails in the Power…

  11. Rename pinned recent sources

    I would like to be able to rename a pinned recent resource.

    For example, now I have used the same url to use sharepoint lists as source and to use sharepoint folder as source. It would be nice if I could rename the pinned sources to sharepoin list and sharepointfolder .

  12. Presentation mode when offline in Power BI Desktop

    Clients may not have Power BI Pro and we create useful things for them in Power BI Desktop - they need to be able to see these in presentation format (i.e. clean view without outlines). Also needed for presentations to clients at locations with no / poor internet connection.

  13. Allow tagging of transactions

    Tagging at transaction level should be enabled. This would be useful when we use Power BI for analyzing large datasets and either want to pick samples or exclude certain transactions from total value.

  14. Canvas Master - View

    In Power Point we have the ability to set a Master Slide that means each new slide in the presentation will start with this template.
    It would be great if we could do a similar thing with the Power BI canvas.
    Set things like a background and logo in your Canvas Master, then each new page on your report will have these already positioned, so you can focus on just adding the data visuals.

  15. Date Slicer | UX When Start Date is Greater Than End Date

    Please Make this UX Change.

    Scenario:
    1. User has Saved Slicer date range in their report, let's say last month (2/1/2020 - 2/29/2020).
    2. User types in 3/1/2020 (in preparation of typing in 3/31/2020).
    3. Power BI immediately reverts 3/1/2020 back to 2/1/2020.

    Correct Behavior:
    If End Date is less than the input start date, set End date = Start date instead of reverting the Start Date entry.

    Work-Around:
    Power BI expects a user to enter the End Date prior to the Start Date. However, having data entry in the inverse order of the UI is not the best design.

  16. Allow Power BI Desktop device code authentication

    Due to various challenges in SSO/federated login scenarios, a device code based authentication for PBI Desktop would be a much easier method than fixing proxy authentication, enabling IE Javascript and fixing unsecure login resources.
