  1. When trending data, it would be nice to use to have more statisical capabilies that also allows us to show equation for curve fit analysis.

    For example be able to do curve fits using linear regression or polynomial equations and be able to show equations.

  2. Option to round currency as needed

    Currently I don't have the ability to round ($) as I'd like depending on who I'm making the report for. I get numbers like $2,127K which is silly or $2M which is too general.

  5. Display number of rows resulted after applying filters in a tabular report

    Our users often have the need to export reports when in a tabular format. Very frequently, they see that the numbers seen on the services does not match what was downloaded, because the export has reached its limitation of 150K rows. This is a huge waste of time. It would be good to see the number of rows that result after applying filters, somewhere on the report header, so that the users can decide whether they want to export the results in excel or apply further filters to reduce the number of rows.

  7. Getting data from SharePoint list is very slow

    I have found that retrieving info from SharePoint Online (O365) with PowerQuery is incredibly slow, specially if you expand any person column like Author/Editor of an entry. Is there any way to speed this up?

  8. Show the word Favourites (rather than Favorites) for UK users

    My Windows display language is set to English (United Kingdom) yet I see "Favorites" (the US spelling) in place of "Favourites" (the UK spelling) in Power BI Report Server (on premise) v15.0.1102.597

    If I change my Windows 10 preferred language to French and restart the browser (IE 11) I get "Favoris", which is as expected

    So it appears that "Favourites" has been misspelt somewhere

    Please can this be corrected

  11. Drag select of table values with total

    In Tableau, you can simply drag the mouse over multiple values that would like to select in a table, and the subtotal of the highlighted items is provided in a tooltip-like box. Need this feature in Power BI.

  12. Allow Dataflow Import with AllowNativeQueries=TRUE or Dataflow JSON edit

    When using the new import feature you can only import a dataflow model that has the AllowNativeQueries attribute as FALSE. There should be the capability to either:

    import dataflow model JSONS where this attribute is TRUE
    modify dataflow JSON and republish without having to go through the standard edit screen which can take FOREVER for it to load a preview of data and validate the model.

    My big beef with dataflows is that often times I'm making a small modification to the SQL associated with one entity (i.e. adjustment to the WHERE clause that has no impact on columns returned). With…

  13. More features in the Format tab

    Create a feature that allows us to select multiple objects and size it all at once. For instance if I have multiple cards that needs to be displayed horizontally, the Card sizes need to all match up.

    Also, allow the feature to align the objects (like cards) horizontally and vertically. These features are similar to that in the MS Visio.

  17. Stop removing Personal Bookmarks when re-publishing a Report

    As of now, when you Re-publish a Report from Desktop, all the user's Personal Bookmarks will disappear, although you are working in the same WorkSpace as beforehand.

    Re-publishing of reports is often needed in larger companies, as you continuously enhance your existing reports, based on the business' needs.

    Would it be possible to enable a feature where the user's Personal Bookmark will not be removed from a particular Workspace when Re-publishing a report?

  18. Automatic refresh function

    Automatic refresh function is not working without creating own report for each of the tabs, and even then, the refresh has to be made for every browser window separately.

    That is not as smooth as the simply reloading the data by clicking the Refresh-button. In cloud Power BI version this problem can be solved putting URL parameter as reportSectionGUID for each tab. It is a shame that the same function is not available at on-prem version.

  19. Ability to change frame width on custom visuals

    Since the Power BI updates, Microsoft added the ability to add frames to custom visuals. It should be possible to change the border thickness. Now it's too narrow.
