  1. Machine Learning Models for Pro Users

    Please extend Machine Learning capabilities to pro users. Small to Medium sized business may not have the employee count to justify enterprise licenses, but we can still benefit from general capability advancements in the Power BI service/product offering.
    See original blog post here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/creating-machine-learning-models-in-power-bi/?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTkRFMlkySTBOR05oWVRGbSIsInQiOiJMRVVibGxBRDV3XC91SVpMeE4rSFV0THJKTnlLU3k5dXZ4bFhXdzh0VFh2ckE4RURRXC92R2FLY2F0TWtOSDhxMm9raVViU2lpdGQ4XC9WaWhzNGdCTHlqMUIrVGFibUJ2TkJ0SFdDUWR2QWY1OFhNOEowaGVXY1FxOXZydjhvcXZONHE0cjNQb0lEdnN2blFjMXVhY0hjcXc9PSJ9

  2. Please extend Dataflows and Machine Learning capabilities to Free users

    Please extend Dataflows and ML capabilities to Free users (of course limiting the processing power/storage). This would be great for learning purposes and would also help a lot in making these PBI tools more popular and increase the adoption.

  4. Key Influencers over time

    Key Influencers evolution over time.
    The new Key Influencers visual does a nice job to understand the contribution of different factors in a given population. If the evaluation is performed over a given period, it is likely that some factors produce a different influence over time, i.e. the mix of factors/influencers tends to be more dynamic than static over time. For example, in a mix of products at different stages of their lifecycle, it is not uncommon to see new products behaving differently to products that initiate their decline. In other cases, some factors have a significant influence triggered by…

  5. Integration of Microsoft .NET ML (Machine Learning) with Power BI

    Similar to R integration in Power BI, it will so important for C# developers to use the newly emerging open-source .NET ML (Machine Learning) https://github.com/dotnet/machinelearning within Power BI.

    Check the Roadmap of this library at https://github.com/dotnet/machinelearning/blob/master/ROADMAP.md
    - Binary classification
    - Multiclass classification
    - Regression
    - Clustering
    - Anomaly detection (coming soon)
    - Ranking (coming soon)
    - Recommendation (coming soon)

    Power BI ♥ ML

  6. key influencer with live connected data

    currently the visual only support imported data. Would be great if it can support live connection

  7. Self Service Integrated Machine Learning

    1) Click on a "Sherlock Homes" icon (for data scope) and get a bounding rectangle with sub-boxes summarizing interesting patterns and correlations found in the dataset, chart, graph, grid.
    2) Drag a line charted against time, into future and see time-series prediction.
    3) Click on a "Clustering" symbol for a chart, graph, grid and get the choice for various k-means visualizations.
    Others...

  8. Machine Learning Quality Check

    Power BI has a variety of easy, built-in ML models/algorithms in desktop, sever, and Q&A. Can we get some simple built in quality check pop-ups? Something like a ROC curve with a Thumbs-up/Thumbs-down symbol or a note that says "Hey, this model fit 100% of your data points. It's probably over-fitting."

  9. Closer integration with Microsoft Cognitive Services APIs

    Power BI/Cognitive Services combination could be a killer app but it needs to be made more accessible.

    There are third party documented methods for accessing Microsoft Cognitive Services APIs from Power BI but the process is a little convoluted and does not work for asynchronous APIs such as Text Analytics Topic API.

    My suggestion would be to add an "Analytics" tab to list the available cognitive services.

    Integration of Power BI sign-ins and Cognitive Services sign-ins would also be handy.

  10. Add Common Algorithmic Analytics Tools

    Add common data mining algorithms to Power BI. Solver Algorithms, Linear Regression, Association Rules, and Clustering would be awesome. My understanding is that they were available in the old Power Query and Power Pivot add-ins to Excel.

  11. Importing machine learning model in Power Query and Predicting

    I want to predict with machine learning model in Power Query.
    for quick / low-cost predict without using Azure.

    Currently
    1. Azure Machine Learning can export model as Core ML.
    2. T-SQL of SQL Server have predict feature.
    3. Model can use on-premises, offline, without using Azure.

    So, I hope to importing model to Power Query,
    and predict with model in Power Query.
    to predict a lot of data on-premises/offline/quick/low-cost.

    Regards

  12. Cluster Algorithm Options in "Automatically Find Cluster"

    Function to "automatically find clusters" allows user to select number of clusters, as option. Can an option to use scalable EM algorithm (default) vs. non-scalable EM vs. K Means be added to the desktop tool?

  13. Input fields that go into Azure Meachine Learning as WebService Input and gives us a predictive result on PowerBI

    Can we have an Input field set on Power BI that goes into the Azure Machine Learning Predictive Experiment, calculates the predictive rice based on the inputs and gives back the results to PowerBI.

  14. Add Regression Equation and R2 to Key Influencers

    Would be nice to see the equation for each key influencer and to see how well the model fits the data with the R squared

  15. Add labels to Key Influencers

    1. Add data labels to Key Influencers so we can see which data points are the outliers.

    Currently, the only way to know is to filter categories out, or to do a scatter plot of the 2 variables under consideration. Not practical when having many key influencers.

    2. Add color and size options for the graphical view of the influencers, similar to the Scatter Plot visual

    -OR-

    2. Add the ML capability to show clusters in the data, in addition with the awesome decision tree for the top segments.

  16. Direct connection with Azure ML models

    Hi

    I want to easily connect Azure ML models into power BI and make it possible to turn every independent variables into a slider that by default get the avg value of the series and the boundaries min and max, with this feature the end user could quickly change the inputs and see the direct response with the forecast from model in an intuitive way.

  17. Use Renamed Explain By in Key Influencers insights

    On the Key Influencer visual the renaming of the Explain by columns is not getting picked up in the analysis. I have renamed [Column A] and [Column B] to "Goal A" and "Goal B" respectively under 'Explain By' but the insight still shows 'On average when Column A increases, Projected Pay also increases. The 'Analyze' column does reflect the renaming but the 'Explain By' columns do not.

  18. When "Customizing Input Fields", to be able to select distinct values of a field.

    I think it would be a significant improvement when creating a Machine Learning Model (for an Entity), if it would be possible when "Customizing Input Fields", not only to select fields, but also be able to select one or more values among the distinct values (if there are any) of one or more fields. Maybe that also should be possible to do for (one or more) of the "Historical Outcome Field(s)".

    The situation I am in now is that I probably have to make one separate "Entity" (and a "Machine Learning Model") for each distinct value (about 20 of them…)…

  19. Analyse Options

    Hi,

    When I right click on a line chart, it shows Analyze and further shows explain the increase/ decrease. This is excellent.

    My idea is that when we further click on explain the increase/ decrease, it should show the analyze should be based on last period or same period last year or any specific period.

    Hopeful, the concern of BI team will review my idea and work on it.

    Regards,

    Jamal Qamar

  20. Voice Command Interaction using Alexa

    It would be great if we can control our dashboards using voice commands through alexa, we can also customize skills as per our requirements. If there can be some way to integrate Power BI with alexa then we can get insights of our reports and dash boards instead of physically interacting and filtering the data required...
