  1. Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

    Vote on this idea if you want expand/collapse on column headers in the matrix similar to what was shipped for row headers in November (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-november-2018-feature-summary/#expandCollapse).

  3. Option to use either light or dark interface.

    New Desktop app update installed an almost white user interface. There is zero contrast which is not good for the eyes. I see where some people have requested a light interface so incorporate an option to select either light or dark theme like in the Office apps.

  4. Sparkline

    Can we add sparkline support to tables and matrix? Native Excel PivotTable supports it.

  5. Allow Table and Matrix Data Exports to Match PowerBI Visual

    I have volumes of information to share with my teams that is best presented in tables and matrices. It would be a huge improvement if they were able to export the data from the visualizations and have the formatting in Excel match the formatting created within PowerBI.

    This would be especially helpful for ongoing forecasting activities.

    Thanks for your feedback on this issue – while we’d like to enable this, there is currently no timetable around doing so. There is the option as a workaround the create a paginated view as a drillthrough of the visual and have a formatted version you can export to Excel, but understand this isn’t a solution everyone can take advantage of currently.

  6. Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

    Allow a user to set the default value for a slicer or tile-by value on a page/dashboard, so that when the Power View page is opened for the first time, the default value is selected.
    eg. If the page has a slicer for Year or Month, allow the user to configure the most recent Year or Month to be selected by default.

    We’re looking into this request, thanks for everyone’s votes and comments.

    It looks like many of the requests will be addressed by the new ‘Sticky filters’ capability. Now when you log out of Power BI and come back to a report, the same items will be selected as when you left.

    For those who’re looking to have a ‘last month’ selection, the relative date slicer might help.

    Those with comments about currencies where having multiple selected makes the report meaningless – the report will load with whatever selection the author saved, so if you save it with one currency selected your users will see that by default.

    If there are scenarios that these features don’t address, please let us know in your comments – if you are really specific it’ll help us build the feature to work just the way you want!

    Thanks again!

  7. Add Folders To Organize Reports On PowerBI.com

    RIght now, on powerbi.com, there is no ability to organize reports, dashboards, etc into folders. If you have a lot of content or users, this gets messy quickly.

    Please add the ability to organize into folders (and secure those folders separately)

  8. Connectivity to Google sheets

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

  9. input fields

    What about adding input fields to the dashboard widgets. Kind of like the text field but it is enabled for user input. This input field can be used in new column and new measure fields so that once the dashboard is set up the user can easily (without filtering) explore the data by entering different values such as if you had an input box for unit price. Then if you change it all the charts of total sales, revenue, etc. Will update to reflect what would happen if you increase the price by 10%. This will enable people to quickly…

  11. Power BI Designer API

    Power BI Designer saves a local PBIX file, which can be a file to export data and data model – in other words, it’s a format that contains a complete semantic model. All the applications that today export data in several formats (CSV, Excel, XML), might provide a richer semantic model exporting a PBIX file.

    Many ISV/SI that have OLTP and other applications that stores data in some database, usually struggle to offer a compelling BI story to their customers. The smaller they are, the more they feel this pressure because probably the effort they can put in their custom…

  12. Support creating calculation groups in Power BI Desktop

    Support the creation of DAX calculation groups in Power BI Desktop - otherwise Power BI can only consume calculation groups created in Analysis Services, whereas it would be very useful to have this feature in any Power BI model.
    Even just a simple text window with a script would be fine. You can clean up the UI later.
    Thanks.

  13. Conditional Formatting for Text

    It would be great to conditional format a table and/or a matrix based on the cell text, not only numbers

  14. When showing subtotals at the bottom, show the attributes there as well and not on top

    When I choose the option to show the subtotals at the bottom, I expect to see the attribute name there as well and not just on top. This is especially crucial for financial statements, like shown here: https://wp.me/p6lgsG-YC

    An option to toggle between showing attributes at the bottom only or at the top as well would be ideal.

  15. Column Level Security for reports

    Ability to define rules at column level, to control the data fields available to different roles (e.g. employee salary visible to the users in finance roles only, while other employee details visible to other department roles).

  16. Show column data profile statistics in header

    Add a column data profile histogram in the data view for every column in Power BI Desktop. This handy feature exists in Power Query (sometimes only on sampled data).

    Add this feature to Power BI Desktop as well, please.

    Hi everyone. With the February release of Power BI Desktop we’ve released a Preview of this feature! You can add multiple fields to the slicer and use expand/collapse to drill through the values in the hierarchy.

    We’d love to hear your feedback on it – please add comments to the thread here if there’s other things you’d like us to add.

    Thanks again for voting and giving us feedback!

  20. Built in Git support in PowerBI Desktop

    When you create a PowerBI report in Power BI Desktop it transparently create \ use a git repository. So you just worked normally, then when you hit publish, it actually push to remote.

    Gitignore could be used to exclude data from being published to the repository. PowerBI would have version control which is desperately needed.

    This would work well with the whole Microsoft buying Github \ Azure DevOps, both from the perspective of promoting good practices such as code version control and CI\CD - process of developing in development and promoting to UAT\production

    It would also allow IT to get…
