  2. Make line data in clustered bar/line chart respect filters selected in other visuals

    I've got a simple report authored in power bi online environment that has a tree map with sales regions and a clustered bar/line combo chart. When a region is selected in the tree map, the data represented by the bar portion of the combo chart updates to reflect that selection. The line data continues to reflect the unfiltered data set. Seems like a bug in that the line and bar portions should reflect the same underlying context.

  3. Integrating Commercial chart library in Power BI without open sourcing it?

    You have created an open source framework "Power BI Visuals" , if any body want to integrate his custom charts in power BI, he has to develop the charts based on the standard set by this framework. Once any custom chart is added in this framework, it will be open source automatically.

    Interesting feedback. To be clear: while the open source framework requires pull requests to be licensed under MIT, it does not mean you must open source your implementations. You can implement the IVisual interface in your own code. We will provide a way for you to upload your visual and use it within Power BI, though it’s a little early to comment on how/when that would be enabled.

  12. Invite ppl from tenant to discussion

    It would be useful If you could invite colleagues to a discussion, like a lync session. So you could talk about Numbers in a Dashboard/Report.

  13. Auto-logout while creating a new report with dataset

    While creating a new report using a dataset in PowerBI, I got disconnected after a period of inactivity. I was in fact creating my report!

    The only possibility I had after the popup appeared was to select Refresh now to login again into PowerBI, loosing my newly created report as the page refreshed to login.

  14. Q&A Amelioration of the filtering on date

    When typing in the Q&A "suspect last 30 days", the query generated is "Show suspects where creation date is from 30 days before now to yesterday".

    The yesterday is actually the problem. The query is not getting anything newer than yesterday midnight, so you have in fact 2 days delay...

    I'd like to provide the Q&A as a useful and timely tool for executives of my company, but this delay cause me a lot of troubles.

  15. Tiles Need to work in Power BI.

    You need to be able to "isolate" a slicer from the entire dashboard and focus it on "just some" charts/tables. YOu can do this easily in Excel by targeting slicers to a specific chart. The only way to do this in Power BI is with Tiles, supported in Power View. Please bring this feature back as soon as you can.
