  1. Images in slicers/filters, such as in Power View

    It would be nice if we could use images URLs as buttons in slicers. Power View can do that. Today we only can use images in tables, matrix and multiple cards.

  2. sort

    I might have overlooked it but I didn't find any way to remove sorting. If I connect a report to a VIEW, I'd like the report to respect the SORT I specified for the view.

  4. Add an option to show "all" columns in a selected view

    In many cases I have dynamic columns (for example 3 last months), in such cases when we refreshing the data and new month added it won't be selected in the visualization chart, I have to add it manually. It would be very helpful to have "all columns" option to make the process fully automated.

  6. Typable input as filter

    Having an input field to use as a filter for the data. I.e. If you were to input a percentage it would then apply that to a numerical column. Additionally allowing for filtering by category, i.e. say you have two percentages, one for "Domestic Sales" and one for "Intl Sales" (and Dom/Intl is a category column) it would apply the different percentage inputted in the dashboard for each category to the corresponding numerical column/data.

    It would be great to be able to go from year and day level by pinching the chart

  8. I would like to be able to lock filters on reports that are shared via the dashboard OR via a content pack

    I have a report and dashboard with a LOCATION filter applied to the entire report. It is important that the location whom is shared the report CANNOT remove the location filter. Our mill in Kenya SHOULD NOT see the performance of our mill in Brazil. Our CFO is not pleased that PowerBI cannot do this. It is a major requirement for our organization.

  11. Add the ability for multiple relationships between table pairs

  12. Add Data Mining

    Move the old Excel Data Mining Add-in to Power BI, letting it work with the embedded tabular engine, without having to connect to a SSAS Server.

  13. ability to set parameters when sharing dashboards/reports

    It would be great if we could set parameters / filters to dashboards and reports before sharing with other users. I currently have to duplicate an existing report and apply filters to each based on my users role in the department (e.g. Dashboard 1 - Role 1, Dashboard 2 - Role 2 etc.)

  16. Disable hardware graphics acceleration

    Hi,
    There's a common error on some device with Office products where it is necessary to disable hardware graphics acceleration, or the product doesn't work. Power Bi Desktop shows the same behavior but it doesn't allow to modify this parameter.

  17. Visual for marginal cost curve

    As various measures to address climate change are considered globally, the ability to display a marginal cost curve with x axis incremental/ aggregated volume and y axis price (cost) will allow presentation and robust debate of the most appropriate and cost effective means to deliver change.

  18. Prevent truncation of the labels on the axis

    How can I prevent truncation of the labels on the axis. Not being able to see the whole thing makes it unusable for any labels that are moderately long.

  19. sort text of tables/charts by a ranking column

    When using tables and charts it if often required to sort the text fields/labels by a numeric ranking value.

    At the moment this can only be achieved by prefixing the label with a "0" padded rank number so that alphabetical sorting works. This works but looks messy and unprofessional.

    So, add a sort option to tables/charts to control the default behaviour
