  1. Totals in stacked column charts

    During several presentations I get questions regarding the total of stacked columns. In the current situation you can select to label all the parts of the stacked column but no grand total. I would like to see the option to add a label to the Visuals which shows the total of the stacked column (this counts for values only). Ideally this total would deviate together with the drilldowns you select, so it stays interactive whatever filters you select or subsets you create on your dashboard.

  2. Conditional Formatting - Whole Table Rows

    It would be great to be able to format full rows and not just specific columns in tables.

    For example - I have a list of date driven tasks and would like to highlight the entire row where the task is overdue.

  3. KPI Customization (Font Size)

    Need to be able to change the font size on the KPI tool. A stoplight visualization is needed most, but a set font size on the KPI tool makes it very limited regarding usability and alternate solutions.

  4. Printing custom visualizations

    It would be helpful to be able to print custom visualizations to PowerPoint. Currently there is just a message saying that the visualizations are not currently supported. Even allowing the visuals to be frozen in a picture format would be acceptable. Thanks.

  5. Vertical column labels in table and matrix

    I have many column headings which are quite long. In Excel I can change the text alignment so the column heading runs vertically rather than horizontally. By using a smaller font it can display a lot more information this way. Now that you have added vertical data labelling to charts can we have similar functionality in the tables and matrices?

  6. Resize bar width for a single bar

    Is it possible to make a single bar in a stacked chart wider than they appear by default?
    It takes more space in a chart, to increase a bar, need to increase a size of whole chart then only it is visible.
    Can we get a option to increase the width of a single bar stacked chart?

  7. Customize all fonts with JSON

    It would be great if we could customize font by importing a JSON file in addition to being able to customize color.

  8. Custom Territory for Power BI Map.

    It should be possible to create a custom territory in Power BI. Not every Organization uses Continent, Country, State & Province or County for Mapping. Some Organizations want to create customer sales territories which is hugely valuable in getting granular into your Data.

    Currently this feature is available in Tableau.

    This will also eliminate the use of Location Intelligence software as a counterpart when analyzing data.

  9. Vertical Column Headers in Matrix

    Make possible to rotate the column header so that they appear vertical. It's very usefull for the case that I have a number of columns and the names of each column is a rather long text, hence it makes the matrix's width large even though the actual cells just hold a number. Format-wise, it can be much more pleasant if the column heades could have appeared vertically to save space rather than the default horizontal.

  10. Gantt by Time and Planned v Actual

    The Gantt Visual should allow greater granularity i.e. include time: Hours, Minutes, Seconds. This should be part of the axis and duration.

    An alternative to "Completion" could be an 'actual' input i.e. [Actual Started] and [Actual Ended]. This will show Planned v Actual in a Gantt.

  11. Conditional color formatting for Radial Gauge

    A ticket was raised for this issue back in August 2015 and was erroneously marked as Completed. Here is the link: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/9486990-ability-to-modify-the-colors-in-the-gauge

    More specifically, I would like conditional color formatting on the Radial Gauge visual with respect to the Target Value. That is, if the Value is exceeding or meeting the Target Value, the gauge would be green, and if is not meeting the Target Value, the gauge would be red. If this was implemented to handle data dynamically, our stakeholders would be able to receive daily reporting on their departments with accurate color-coding.

    I would appreciate a time estimate…

  12. Interactive Python Visuals

    I know Python Visuals have just been supported for Power BI, but lets get the ball rolling on this one.

    Please support Visual Interactions with Python Visuals.

  13. Adjustable columns in multi-row card visual

    I would like to be able to adjust the column width of the Multi-row card visual, and/or have it dynamically adjust.

    Right now I have the same column width for my 2 digit division number and my 30 character customer name. The division column looks huge, and the customer names still cut off.

    Additionally, I need the option to force all the data to be in one line/row.

  14. Ability to "Apply Width to All Columns" of Table, Matrix & Matrix Preview

    I so wish that you consider providing the ability to "Apply Width to all Data Columns" and maybe to Rows as well. This can be just a toggle (checkbox).

    My current experience was to resize each of the 90-day worth of data and it was not very productive and I had to do this each time a new batch comes in.

  15. Display the real (proportional) size of bubbles

    Today the bubble size is automatically readjusted and does not allow to have bubbles too large or too small.

    I would like to have the option to disable this and have the area of my bubble to be always proportional to the 'size' value.

  17. Improve customs visuals quality

    On the one hand, custom visuals are great. Thanks to the engaged community we have new visualizations.

    On the other hand, those visuals are buggy, unoptimized, not fully integrated, lacking functionality and sometimes of poor visual quality.

    Hope the PowerBI team picks up on the shortcomings and improves them or release their own official versions.

    Please vote ;)

    started  ·  Tzvi Keisar responded

    We are investing to constantly improve the custom visuals and the platform. performance, reliability, feature-set, etc.
    Most visuals are maintained by the community, and we encourage them to improve. recently the custom visuals gallery was migrated to the Office store, where reviews and ratings are available, so I encourage you to go and review visuals and ask for features directly from the developers.
    You can also use the dedicated community site to suggest ideas: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Custom-Visuals-Ideas/idb-p/CustomVisualsIdeas

  18. Pagination in table reports

    We dont have pagination in table reports, it will be really good to have pagination on tables for list showing multiple rows and entries.

  19. insert break in vertical axis

    For graphic charts with relevant differences in data in one of the axis, it would be interesting to create the possiblity of inserting a gap or break into the graph axis so the lower values and the higher values can be easier analized at a glance.

  20. Export Power BI visual matrix to Excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

    I want a way to export a visual matrix (already assembled in my Power BI report) and take it to excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.
