  1. Only Show reports in Apps where you have access to

    Let users only show reports in Apps where they can see figures and visuals.

    Now some employees only have the right to see 1 report. When they select a different report, they see only errors.

    Is this possible?

  2. Multiple relative date filters

    When you have a date filter based on a Date table but don't want all dates to be available for selection, I'm currently using the "Relative date filtering" and showing the dates for the past 2 years, however, I sometimes need a combination, so I'd like to see the date from the past 2 years but also the dates in the next 1 year.

    Alternatively, we need a programmatic way to set date filters so that this can be calculated as a measure and selected as a data field.

  3. new workspace settings

    We have data from Oracle and Excel combined in 1 report.
    The Oracle database is on a server inside our domain and the Excelfile is in Onedrive.

    With the new setup it is not possible that users using dedicated capacity can see the report. Whereas in the old model it was possible.

  6. Drop Down Menu - Bookmarks

    Greeting,

    I have a suggestion.
    It would be great to have a drop down menu to use the tags.

    An application for entering election names and adding worksheets to them.

    I would allow for less space and easier use.


    Sorry about my bad English!

    Nice Greetings.

  9. GCD for multiple values

    Current DAX function for GCD supports only two inputs or values. But, if we want to calculate the GCD for the entire column or a set of values more that 2 numbers, It is time consuming and not possible at times. So, DAX GCD could be expanded to multiple values support.

  10. To support Query Folding when using dataflow as source

    Please add Query folding support when using dataflow as source.

    To prove that query folding is currently not supported when connecting to dataflow, I have a simple query as shown below. When right clicking at the "Removed Other Columns" step, the "View Native Query" option is grayed out.

    let
    Source = PowerBI.Dataflows(null),
    #"ddf25813-a45c-419d-83b3-xxxxxxxxxxxx" = Source{[workspaceId="ddf25813-a45c-419d-83b3-xxxxxxxxxxxx"]}[Data],
    #"45f4c0b5-6630-445b-b053-xxxxxxxxxxxx" = #"ddf25813-a45c-419d-83b3-xxxxxxxxxxxx"{[dataflowId="45f4c0b5-6630-445b-b053-xxxxxxxxxxxx"]}[Data],
    #"Taiwan Customers1" = #"45f4c0b5-6630-445b-b053-xxxxxxxxxxxx"{[entity="Taiwan Customers"]}[Data],
    #"Removed Other Columns" = Table.SelectColumns(#"Taiwan Customers1",{"Customer number", "Customer name", "Salesperson"})
    in
    #"Removed Other Columns"

  11. Cumulative total return

    Cummulative returns in quick measures. Be able to compound returns (1+r1)*(1+r2)*...(1+rN)-1. The most similar option I see is running total which is not quite the same,

  13. "Test As Role" in Power BI Web Across Copied Reports That Share The Same Dataset

    With the new updates in June-July 2019 reports have the ability to be copied to other Workspaces/Apps whereby Primary reports in the Primary Workspace/Apps share the same Dataset with the Secondary reports in the Secondary Workspaces/Apps. This is a very good feature that I love.

    However, when it come to testing the Row Level Security (RLS) using the "Test As Role" option, the Primary Workspace/App is the only Workspace/App to "Test As Role", which means one cannot "Test As Role" the RLS in the Secondary Workspaces/Apps.

    It would be nice if Shared Datasets across different Workspaces/Apps have the option to…

  15. format numbers per object in a report - whether from SSAS, Dataset or whatever

    One must be able to format metrics differently in different objects in a report. Currently, if you bring in data from SSAS Tabular or Datasets, you cannot change the format in the report. But you may need millions on one object and down to the penny on another object.

    All reports can have only one formatting for a metric. Even in ONE PBIX file, you can change the format for a metric but it is the same on every object.

    I know of only two workarounds:

    1) build different PBIX files and publish the same data more than one time. …

  16. Matrix: Hide Expand icon when no drill down data for item

    I like the expand/collapse buttons in a Matrix. But if a line has no values to drill down to it would be nice if you hide or remove the expand icon from that one line only. It confuses people as they think there are values to expand to. And if you hit the button all it does is blank out the values for that line and bold everything else in the matrix.

  17. Replace "All" in slicer selection control options with the field name of the slicer

    Instead of seeing "All" when the select all option is picked the field name is viable.

  18. Split Format into separate pane, similar to Filters

    Loved the recent update to make Filters a separate pane in the user interface.

    I think it would be great to have Format as a separate pane as well, so you don't have to hunt for the icon on the Visualizations pane, when going through a page and restyling.

  19. Pop Up Text box with Refresh data embeded

    Add an option for a pop up window at start / opening a report or dashboard. Like the pop-up you have in BI desktop when you open it except you can edit it and put the latest refresh update time and date in there. Would like to put in the pop up box that Data could lag from system by 24 hrs at the most and then have the latest refresh time and date.

  20. Linked Map Zoom/Extent

    If I have two maps of the same geographic area (e.g. Continental USA) overlaying different information (Average vs. Maximum for instance) I would like to have the ability to "link" the extents of both maps so when I zoom into one of the maps the other map zooms in the same manner so they are linked together rather than only being independent and requiring me to Zoom into both to make them match up.
