    Thanks for all the feedback on this! We are definitely planning on adding Incremental refresh to Pro. Do know though that it is a fair amount of work, so it may be a bit before we can give you a more firm timeline.

    In the meantime, keep voting so you’re notified when we do have more information to share!

  2. Incremental Data Loads

    Is it possible to add incremental load functionality to Power Query? Pull and load just new or changed rows from source system

    We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.

    At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.

    You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh

    We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!

  4. SAP BusinessObjects BI Universe

    All of the current Ideas that mention SAP BusinessObjects BI Universe integration are marked as completed as this feature was offered pre June/July release. This is nearly a critical requirement for adoption in my organization.

    I had previously heard that this was removed due to licencing restrictions, can we get an official response on that? Is there any possibility of this being re-integrated?

  5. Connectivity to Google sheets

    Connecting to Excel workbooks in OneDrive is a great first step, but connectivity to Google Sheets should be there too.

  6. Make functions refreshable when the data source is a parameter of the function

    Like discussed here: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Integrations-with-Files-and/Refreshing-queries-with-functions-doens-t-work/td-p/2450 - queries where data access happens inside a function and where the data source is dependent on parameters to the function should be refreshable.

  15. Add a connector for MS Project MPP files

    Please add MS Project MPP files as a data source.

    Wonderful things can be done with Project Online and Power BI.

    I would love to do the same with the MS Project MPP files on my laptop

  16. Workday HR

    I would love to have the ability to do reporting against Workday. We leverage it as our global HR platform. It has some really good reporting but it would be nice to have the ability but it would be great to be able to share reporting with SharePoint and Power BI so that we can surface non sensitive data up in dashboards.

  19. Support JDBC Data Sources.

    Adding support for JDBC data sources would allow for integration with databases other than SQL Server.

  20. Connect to password protected excel workbook

    It would be great if we can connect or open the password protected excel workbook inside Power BI Desktop. Of course we should know & provide the password first.
