  1. Unlink the PBIX file name and Published Data Set Name

    I add dates to the file names to keep track of the PBIX Versions. And when I need to overwrite the published data model, I am forced to rename the file, publish and then revert to the old name.

    It would be great if you can create a 'Model Name' property for a PBIX file, so that irrespective of what the File Name is, it replaces/overwrites a specific data set on the Power BI Service.

  6. DevOps integration

    The developer experience can be greatly enhanced if the Desktop tool can integrate more like Visual Studio to Azure DevOps. Also, compare feature for changesets would be great.

  8. Auto save

    The tool crashes sometimes unexpectedly. Would be good to have an auto save with frequency setting available.

  9. Slicer sync issue

    It appears that whe slicers are checked to synchronize to a page and visual is unchecked, it will appear out of nowhere as default when a bookmark is triggered on the page.

  10. Auto field formatting

    Enable auto formatting of numeric columns to Field Formatting option for tables/matrix visuals rather than commit to metric. Currently this only allows None, Thousands, Millions etc..

  11. Download visuals with the same format as PowerBI

    It would be great to get the same format for the visuals when you download the information, also would be great the ability to copy the visuals directly without download in an spreadsheet.

  12. Existing Report should update with latest version

    Hi, currently I can see that I can download updated version of Power BI Desktop from the website. But the issue is my earlier existing report is not updating to the latest version. We need a chance to update the existing power BI desktop application to the latest version. Instead of creating new application, existing application need to be updated.

  13. Select multiple measures and columns to interact with in the fields view.

    I would like to be able to select multiple measures and columns to manage them all at once. For instance, I would like to move multiple measures to the same home table at once or change the data type for multiple columns at once.

  14. Click on relationship in model view and see relation graphic staying highlighted

    Click on relationship in model view and see relation graphic staying highlighted. This would be helpful to see what each table is related to especially for larger models that have many tables interconnected.
    This functionality used to exist in older versions of Power BI (I think before Jan 1 2019)

  15. display different measure when hovering on card visual

    Seems to be a difficult one but it would be amazing if we can see different things when hovering on a card visual e.g. sales when static but show sales % when put your mouse on the visual

  19. 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:

  20. 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.
