  1. Continuous date should use end-of-period as the default

    When the x-axis is a continuous date, BI Desktop defaults to show Jan 1 and July 1. This runs counter to typical business charts, which utilize end-of-period dates (June 30 and Dec 31, for example). This distinction is especially important when looking at year-end data. If the chart scales to only show years, then the data hovering over the 2019 label will be Dec 31, 2018. This is very confusing to readers of the visualization.

  2. View and use the published version from a PBI file without publishing?

    This version would facilitate the view and modifications of the dashboard before actually publishing it (which takes time)

  3. Disable app expand/collapse if report only has 1 tab

    On the new app navigation experiences all reports will expand to show all tabs in that report... even if there is only 1 tab.
    The default behavior should be to only offer the expand/collapse feature if there are more than 1 tab.

  4. Role Memberships in XMLA End Point

    Having XMLA end points for all my models in Premium Capacity is great since I can query those models via DMVs to create data dictionaries, relationship diagrams, etc. However, a huge missing piece is being able to query role memberships. I can see the roles, can see the DAX expression used by those roles, but I cannot see the users assigned to each roles. I would like to be able to see the users to audit RLS across all of my models.

  5. Option to remove K when showing data as thousand

    It would be useful to have the option to show/hide the "K" when showing data in thousands. The same applies for million, billions etc as well.

    If you have report with all the data in thousands it is only messy to see the K behind every figure. Instead you can create a textbox showing that all data is in thousands.

  7. highlight applied filter

    With multiple slicers on a report page it is currently not possible to quickly see which slicers have a value selected.

    It would be great to have the ability to change the color of the slicer background or the background color of the slicer items. (Default state, Selected state)

    This would help the consumer of the report to very quickly see which filters have been applied and which still can be applied.

  8. Selective reports in Power BI App

    Hello Team,

    I have an app created using Power BI premium workspace. And I am sharing different reports to different people using this app. Now, I am trying to restrict the person to see the report name in the report list in the left navigation bar, which is not shared with the same person.

  14. Please allow "Organizational Account" authentication for sharepoint online to allow auutomated refresh

    At the moment powerbi does not allow a user to automate data refresh using "organizational account" which is a very basic feature to allow users to not compromise security and at the same time automatically refresh the data.

    Any organization having single sign-on implemented cannot refresh reports as there is no authentication method on PowerBI service for automating refresh.

  17. .Net Viewer control

    Ability to embed dashboard into wpf application by loading pbix file off network share. Azure and Cloud are sometimes not possible to smaller companies or because of privacy policies. Understand incorporating it into Azure allows a continual flow of revenue, however shuts out alot of companies from using the product. Maybe link it to a reasonably priced viewer only license, so it is still a source on revenue.

  18. Bring Back Gateway Selection when uploading from Power BI Desktop

    Prior to the June 2019 version of Power BI Desktop, it was possible to select a data gateway when publishing a report from Power BI Desktop.

    The workflow went as follows:

    1) Author Report in Power BI Desktop, with connection to data source accessible via gateway.

    2) Log in to the relevant Power BI account in Power BI Desktop

    3) 'Publish' the report from Power BI Desktop

    4) During the Publish process: If there was more than one gateway that could access the given data-source, a dialogue would appear allowing you to choose the gateway to use. This is now…

  19. Force the Tachometer to disapear when the data set is Blank

    Hi,

    I would like to find a neat way to remove my Tachometer visual in my page view when the data is blank. Right now I have defined some measures using pie chart to show blank and hide the different parts of my Tachometer but was wondering how it is possible to remove the whole Tachometer visual when data is blank or zero?

    I have 9 Tachometers in my Page view report. It is impossible now as per the support team replied so they suggested me to post it as a new idea. Hope you community like it and upvote
