  1. WordCloud

    WordCloud 1.7.1 -- When you have "Too many values. Not showing all data." The Data Colors format category is not available. When too many values are present, the "Default Color" option needs to remain available for formatting.

  2. "Display folders" above table level in data model

    It would be nice with some kind of organizing level above the table level in a (tabular) data model in Power BI, SSAS etc. For instance, by using "Display folders" to include measures, columns etc. from multiple tables in the same folder.

    There's a lot of business value to tap into between and across organizational boundries and tables, or from a wider overview, which is restricted by the tables as the top level in larger data models.

    The concept quickly and superficially illustrated by a fictive AdventureWorks example: https://oxcrx34285.i.lithium.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/166559i041B82FEAEB0C494/image-size/large

    Maybe one could also have a choice between showing the traditional…

  3. Enable/disable interaction of visual groups

    It would be great if we have an option to enable/disable the visual interaction of visual groups. Currently we can change the interaction of single visual at a time.

  5. PowerBI dashboards to allow pooling of tiles

    I have to create reports with pages that contain KPIs, tabular information and other visuals
    However, the users want to be able to drag and drop different visuals that make sense according to their business needs

    The idea is similar to that of the Phone view where you have all the unpinned tiles on the right side of the panel and then i drag and drop to fit my needs
    However i have access to all the tiles and i can remove any other tile whenever i want.

    Is it possible to implement the same idea with web views whereby…

  7. Shapemap data colours

    It would be very nice if it was possible to show datarange and corresponding colour when using Shapemap.

  10. File > Close

    Under the file menu in PBI, we need a File Close Option like Excel. This helps to open more files and close when not needed.

  11. Dynamic Visualisation Title

    Under
    Visualisation > Format > Title > Title Text

    Make it possible to put something other than static text in here as it is prone to error (incorrect titles) when data or input changes and the visual in hidden with a bookmark for example.

  13. Pin group of visual

    the new grouping options for visuals is great. Allowing to not having to move visuals one by one.
    Next step that would also greatly help to build efficient dashboard would be to have option to pin directly the group of visual to the dashboard.
    For example instead of pinning several card visuals, we can group them & pin directly the whole group.

  14. Ability to customize what clicking a tile does in Mobile app - go to report page or focus mode

    In the web browser, you click on a dashboard tile and get taken directly to the linked report page. In the Mobile Apps, you click on a dashboard tile and get taken to a full screen version of that tile.
    This is very frequently not the right behavior. A proper solution would be to have a way to toggle the mobile click behavior between "open in focus mode" and "open report page".

    A frequently suggested work-around is to use the "external link" option of a tile setup. However, external links force an app rebuild even when pointed at the same…

  16. Warning before "There's not enough memory to complete this operation" when refreshing dataset.

    Lately a dataset hit the 1 GB limit (I use pro license).

    It would be great with a warning "Your refresh succeeded but used over 90% memory" giving time to clean/rework the dataset before it fails.

  17. Batch process report with changing value

    When you have individual reports to be generated in PDF format for different people (same report but with different names and values corresponding to those names) it would be good to set up a batch process that would take a value = first name & last name from a given table and column / field and go through until all names have been exported in PDF format individually with their specific data.

  18. PowerBI Sharepoint web part, each page with a separate nav bar link

    PowerBI Sharepoint web part, each report page with a separate nav bar link

    It would be good to have each Page of a PowerBI report as a separate link on the left Sharepoint Nav panel. This can easily be done via manual link creation, BUT the filter selections reset between pages when done this way.

  19. Power BI SharePoint Online report web part accessible to external guest users who have their own Power BI Pro license

    Power BI SharePoint Online report web part accessible to external guest users using their own Power BI Pro license.

    This is important for using Sharepoint Portals to share PowerBI content with clients, to avoid paying double for PowerBI licenses.

    i.e. as per article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-azure-ad-b2b, PowerBI Pro licenses can be used from the guest users tenancy, without needing the sharer to issue a second PowerBI Pro license. Except this doesn't currently work for the Power BI SharePoint Online report web part , and a SECOND PowerBi Pro license has to be issued. The external guest already has one, and the…
