  1. Allow us to predict errors

    Lets say I convert results into a table but there are no results.. that means the formatting I applied will fail , since there is nothing to format.

    What bothers me, is that it DESTROYS the report, and even worse, STOPS THE UPDATE OF EVERY VISUALIZATION..

    If that wasn't bad enough, the end user (not the publisher) has no idea this has occured, because the visualizations still show the last updated result, instead of showing "There's no data" or "There's an error".

    I am forced to tell my users "no , its working fine, its just that it cant deal…

  2. When re-sizing a table's columns they don't stay that size after saving/publishing

    When re-sizing a table's columns to display all the columns without having to scroll sideways, the columns don't stay that size after saving &/or publishing. They jump to a bigger size than normal.

  6. Prebuild Modules

    You should have different modules pre-build so that business can use it out of the box, for Ex: Energy Consumption Analytic Modules where the user will just pass the Conumption details and the pre-build Module should prepare the Dash board and all the Analytics associated with it

  8. Pulling live web data from raw data

    Pulling live web data from raw data. I work with temperature/humidity monitors that have a web based detail screen that is very rustic. I would like to pull the live data from there in the same fashion Excel lets me do it. Two formats of raw data are a) From http://10.112.160.175/data output: F|66.6|48.8|-999.9|-999.9|-999.9|-999.9|66.3|49.3|101.5| and b) http://10.112.160.175/config output: EM1E3H00565|Room Name|Model EM1|12|5.6|1|Recorder Room

  9. Ability to configure the use of commas for users who need to use a semicolon

    For very many users may have a difficult start with DAX because the documentation DON’T comment/shows that some must use a semicolon instead comma in the DAX syntax. We want the opportunity to be able to configure it. At least a tooltip for user that have language setting that required semicolon.

  10. Allow for third party companies to create, submit and publish their own services

    Much the same as developing an app for the Windows store. Develop a service for PowerBI, submit it for approval then publish in the services section

  12. Control Update Frequency of Direct Connect Tiles

    Control Update Frequency of Direct Connect Tiles (e.g. Azure SQL). Some real-time dashboard would benefit from this greatly. Perhaps introduce this feature in a premium more expensive SKU. Update certain tiles every minute! :)

  17. Change 'Share' tab to look like a tab instead of button

    Change tab on share screen to not look like a button. Whenever I have watched someone go to share a dashboard with me, they click the 'Share' tab at the top instead of the 'Invite' button at the bottom.

  19. Linked data sources. Would be incredibly helpful if Power BI allowed pointers to data sets rather than having to always import.

    Would be ideal if Power BI could simply point to data in SQL servers or SharePoint lists, rather than having to always import. Would rather point than have to synch redundant data.

  20. Being able to pin a mixed graphic with line and curve

    If you create a report with a mixed graphic in bar and with lines, and use the same indecator for column value and line value there is a huge bug !
    You can't pin this graph in a Dashboard (nothing happens).
    I have opened a ticket 115101613273501 with detailed information and even an example and the supprot confirmed the bug, but nothin is hapenning ! It's not a paied ticket !
