  2. Unstructured text search/analysis in Q&A

    This idea is to add unstructured text search/analysis to the Q&A module in PowerBI. This will enable users to search for keywords and/or phrases in the text column through the Q&A search field, so that I could do more advanced filtering on non-numeric data.

    If the dataset contains a column with unstructured text (e.g. DescriptionText), I want to search for and/or filter on keywords in this column. Sample value for DescriptionText column: "Conceptual study for California solar power plant 2013". I want to use PowerBI Q&A to search for (and count) items that contain California in the DescriptionText column. This…

  3. OneNote and PowerBI

    I attended the CRM Dynamics Blitz yesterday and they said that OneNote will be an option in addition to the notes column.

    I find this awesome. Can PowerBI look at the OneNote data remotely like Excel?

  4. Q&A en Español - Consultas en lenguaje Natural

    Q&A es algo increíble! La facilidad con la podemos escribir y hacer las preguntas en un lenguaje natural y obtener las respuestas al instante es simplemente impresionante y único...si hablas inglés y entiendes inglés.

    Lamentablemente, el único idioma soportado en estos momentos es el inglés y es ésta la razón por la cual tenemos esta nueva sugerencia.

    Necesitamos el Q&A o PreguntasyRespuestas totalmente en español! (por favor)

    Now that we feel the UX is solid, we are moving this one to planning phase.

  5. Tell me what I can ask

    When I connect to a new data source and don't really know the structure of the data, I have no idea what questions I can ask. I should get some suggestions or a list of what fields are in the data, etc.

  7. 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.

  8. Need to continue support global synonyms.

    This is the key to make Q&A scalable. Understand global synonyms is undisclosed feature, but it's key and we should definitely add it. The way we use it today is to create a simple keyword such as 'perftrack' 'myperformance', which are global synonyms to complex queries like "show me fy15 q1 tgt and q1 shipped and q1 att and h1 tgt and h1 shipped and h1 fcst and h1 fcst att and h1ltg and h1 upside matrix", so that end users (people who are usually not tech savvy) can really self serve. Without global synonyms or similar features, Q&A will…

  9. Q&A on SSRS datasets

    I think It would be good if Power BI's cool feature Q&A work with SSRS reports datasets too if particular SSRS report is pinned in the dashboard. that will help the user to get summaries from very large reports data.

  12. Need to be able to send a URL to a Q&A result like we do today. This is super critical to make it scalable!

    Currently we use Q&A for all reporting and analytics purpose and the way we do it is to generate a required view through Q&A and send people the link, who can just keep the link which will always provide updated data whenever underlying Q&A workbook refrehes (daily).

  13. Need a way to test a new Q&A model before releasing to production.

    Need a way to test a Q&A model (in some sort of a dev environment) before releasing (to production environment). This is especially critical in enterprise settings, where any change to the data model will likely have large business impact affecing a large number of people.

  14. Allow me to change the data source used in a Q&A result

    When I have multiple data sources, typing a question doesn't always bring back the right data. I need to be able to change which workbook/connection Q&A uses to show me results.

  16. Secure personal Health Information (PHI) in Power BI to Hipaa level.

    Is the PHI information secure to Hipaa levels? If you upload the data to the designer, is it now out of the control of the user.

  18. Enable Q&A on PowerBI's report

    It'd be great if users could Q&A a PowerBI dashboard from the "Report" view instead of having to go to "Dashboard". Also, why not embed Q&A in PowerBI Desktop?

  19. Integrate Q&A with Microsoft Bot Framework

    It's wonderful if you can ask PowerBI datasets questions, in whatever platform you choose to connect it to in the Microsoft Bot Framework.. to begin with some kind of API to the Q&A would be feasable

    Likely this question can be merged with the questions "Create a PowerBIBot for Integration with Slack", but integrating with Microsoft Bot Framework would make that possible.
