  4. Filtering Error On Relative date

    Trying to filter by relative date does not get the latest date. Isn't the time zone not taken into consideration? This is because the date is updated when the local time is past 00:00 (GMT).

  5. Add Manager field to be imported from office 365 tenant to Power BI

    From powershell we'are able to extract all and report on pbi's tenant metadata, i.e, workspaces, refreshes, reports, dashboards, users, but still there are some data that cannot be retrieved, such as, Manager field.

    I tried to see a solution with the microsoft team and this was their answer.

    Thank you for working on this case with me!
    As agreed, this support incident will now be archived.
    If you need additional assistance within the scope of this case or if the issue re-occurs, please let me know and we can reopen the case and work again.

    Unfortunately, Microsoft 365 usage metrics…

  8. Filter multiple columns in a Table using OR condition

    I want to be able to search and filter using a Value in multiple columns in a Table.

    For example I have an Employee table with columns: FirstName, LastName and EmpID.

    I want to filter this table and display Rows that contain the value "Sam" either in FirstName or LastName column.

    The DAX query in Desktop could be: = if (([FirstName]="Sam" OR [LastName]="Sam"), [EmpID], null)

    This cannot be done from Power BI Service, as we cannot change the value in DAX formula. I cannot filter the table using different values.

  9. Add Ctrl+Click+Drag option to duplicate viz and move in one instance

    It would improve the UX if a user would be able to hold Ctrl+Click and drag a viz in another space in Power BI just as you do with shapes in Excel. So much time would be saved this way.

  11. Matrix formatting

    I was excited last year when expression based formatting was announced, but there seems to have been little update on this over the last few months.
    This is important for financial reporting where we need rows with different number formats/bold/italics/borders. All possible with dimension columns telling the visual how to behave.
    I know about the profitbase visual and it is fantastic, but it would be good for lots of reasons if tables and matrixes had this functionality as core ms matrix functionality. This could then be applied to non accounting matrixes as well.
    So idea is expand on formatting options…

  12. TimeZone Shift

    It's possible to change the timezone from a datetime column just adding some value, like "+ 1/24". But if I use a variable, like "+ [TZ_VARIABLE]/24" it doesn't work.

  13. Disable table refresh to effectively freeze data

    In query editor if I disable refresh functionality and keep load data enabled for a specific table it should NEVER ask again to refresh that table. Instead if I use that table referenced eg in a union function it keeps trying to refresh from its original datasource. If i disable refresh fucntionality and the data are yet loaded I should be able eg to wipe all data from original DB and power BI should still work with the data it yet has.

  15. Adjust paramater display size

    The parameter width is fine when viewed in Power BI report builder, but when saved to the power bi service, the parameter width is very small. When looking through many options there is a tool tip, but it would be nice adjust the viewable width of the parameters.

  16. Don't overwrite dataset parameter values in workspace with each publish

    On Power BI service you are able to set parameter values under the dataset settings. In my case I use these parameters for the server and database name.
    The reason I do this is to be able to develop against a limited dev database and to run the dataset against a production database on PBI service.
    On each publish of the dataset the parameter values in the workspace are overwritten with the values from PBI developer.

    The best solution would be to be able to set some "deploy" options when publishing the pbix file. In these options you should then…

  19. Top N + Other

    Hi,

    When using "Top N" feature on visuals, please make it possible to add "Other".

    So selecting "Top N" based on Sales, it would be possible to select "Group rest as Other".

    I can there are several workarounds with ranks, but I don't find it very dynamic with slicers etc. This would be gamechanger!
