  1. custom layout for grouping

    There is a dynamic layout on sample site Showcase that rearrange the position of the visuals into columns.
    https://microsoft.github.io/PowerBI-JavaScript/demo/v2-demo/index.html#
    We are using this feature but the thing is that we are also using grouping in Power BI Desktop, as described here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-grouping-visuals

    Some of our visuals are grouped as whole.
    When group of visuals is embedded while also using custom layout. The group got separated and our design based on the grouping will not be displayed.
    We would like keep the visuals grouped(as it is displayed in Power BI Desktop) and not separated when it is embedded with custom…

  2. There should be a way for user to choose None as Retention Policy

    When i create a dataset from Stream Analytics there is no option to choose None for Retention Policy. So the dataset is created default with BasicFifo with only 200 000 rows. This is to few for us. There should be a way to either when creating the dataset to be able to choose none. Or a way to change it afterwards.

  4. Display data source in a card

    I manage PBI reports across more environments than I care to mention and have to have the same report in each one. When I have to deploy the same report manually across these environments I open each report, change the data source, and manually publish it to the corresponding space. Kind of prone to human error. I need an exposed report value so I can put the data source in a card and make sure the DEV report isn't pointing at the UAT environment etc. Any other system variables you would like to expose would be cool also.

  5. Let measure control visibility of objects

    Please allow measure to control visibility of objects. The bookmark is somewhat walkaround solution compared to other BI tools but we need a more systematic/programmatic way to achieve this. The bookmark can complement but shouldn't be a primary/only way.

  6. RSS feed for https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/support/

    It would be nice to have an RSS feed for the Service Status/Awareness found at https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/support/ .

    My organization relies heavily on Power BI. It is very difficult to train all business users on accessing the support site and looking for issues instead of coming to IT for help. If an RSS feed was created, we could send out emails or post to teams automatically that a Service issue is occuring.

  7. New Data Category: Key

    There needs to be a new data category to identify table columns that behave as Key field. A key field shows the following characteristic:
    1) It is never displayed in a report.
    2) It is never null, empty, or ' '.
    3) It is a unique value when a primary key, duplicates when a foreign key.
    4) It is always indexed for quick matching (JOIN) to it's corresponding index in other tables.

  8. RDL Paginated reports and Publish to Web

    Please enable end users to easily share RDL by enabling Publish to Web for paginated reports created with Power BI Report Builder?

    Since placing an RDL onto the workspace is already restricted to Premium subscribers only, it would be helpful to enable end users to share RDL or paginated reports publicly themselves without needing .NET developer.

  17. How to remove “Critical Firefox Update”? | +1-866-235-4333

    When Firefox web browser users are being redirected to sites that display a message: Critical Firefox Update alert, then the possible reason may be an adware program installed on your computer.

    The Critical Firefox Update advertisement redirect is due to an adware installed on your computer. They contain many free software that you download off of the Internet. But some of these free downloads do not inform that other software will also be installed including an adware.

    If you have installed this malicious program, a message with the Critical Firefox Update will pop-up whenever you will browse the Internet. This…
