  4. Source Depot

    Similar to github, it would be awesome to be able to source data from source depot. A lot of internal teams will adopt.

  10. Sharing Through a Link Instead of an Invitation

    I am surprised that I haven't found this suggested anywhere yet, but why can't we create a unique link that if someone clicks on that link they are instantly shared the dashboard and reports. I find it frustrating to have to continually reshare the dashboard when new users need access. Give them a link and be done with it.

  13. Add Q&A optimization tool

    Power BI for Office 365 there is wonderful tool for optimizing Q&A (add custom synonyms and phrases). I think this functionality should be implemented in new Power BI too.

  17. Arrows on a Power Map to represent movement

    Within Power View and Power Map you can - as far as I know - only display information on a certain point (country, city, zip code , etc) However, some of my clients would like to see the movement between different points, for example the movement of goods from The Netherlands to Germany. Wouldn't it be nice if you could plot an arrow on the map to represent the movement?

  18. Export Power BI reports Created in Cloud to designer files

    Provide Ability to export the reports created in the Power BI App to the Power BI designer . This feature will enable the exporting of content from one app to another much more flexible and would really help vendors like us who provide standardized content for a particular business vertical.

    a parameter that is set for a query once that basically says all date methods and calculations now should work to 30-Jun and not 30 Dec . Date Slicer also should work with this offset.
