  2. PowerPivot Workbooks with direct connections be made refreshable

    I connect to my SQL sources directly from with PowerPivot, there is no need for me to use PowerQuery. I would like such Workbooks which use this method of obtaining data to be refreshable in PowerBI, currently it is not.

  7. GitHub: allow to filter users by attributes (company, organization, etc.)

    I want to be able to filter my GitHub contributors into "external" and "internal" users. The GitHub API lets me do this using the organization or company field but this isn't an option in PowerBI

    Hi, and thanks for the feedback! We would really struggle to do this as we expect the Designer to always be ahead of Excel in terms of available functionality. We’re releasing updates to the Designer every month, so you’d not be able to open those in Excel. We can reconsider this in future if there’s lots of support for it!

  12. Allow calculated measures in web designer

    At the moment if you're using the web based designer, you're unable to create custom measures. This currently means you have to go back to the source data to add in all possible measures

  13. Better control over large datasets

    Currently, connecting to an online CRM instance with 250k users is completely useless considering it takes 1hour to download contact information. The designer should support smaller datasets while in design mode.

  15. Sharing Dashboards with On-Prem SSAS: Add option to make recipients view data with their own credentials

    When sharing a dashboard that connects to an on-prem ssas tabular model/cube, add an option to make users see data according to their own credentials instead of seeing the data as the person who shared the dashboard.

  16. Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

    It would be great if there was an option to tranfer ownership of created reports and dashboards. This way, work would not have to be duplicated if the original creator was to leave the company/change roles/etc.

  18. Add the ability to tap into the data collected by the Operations Management Suite (OMS) in Azure

    OMS dashboards are very limiting. But the data collected is very powerful if it can be exported and correlated with other data sources
