  1. Sequence data on the charts for different dates

    Please create an ability to compare data of different dates on filter. For example, if there is filter by both 2015 and 2016 year, where are months in 2015 (from june till december) and january of 2016 year, january of the 2016 on the chart will be the first month (as if it was 2015 year), and then there go june-december of 2015.

  2. Super user to dashboards & reports inside company

    It would be great to have super user rights to see what kind of reports/dashboards have been done from my company data source. This would be very useful. And also see with whom they are shared with.

  3. Excel 2016 version

    Allow Excel 2016 to run the latest version of Power Query.

    You can do this in 2010 and 2016 using the Power Query plugin.

    I recently updated to Excel 2016 and seems the Get Data Power Query is a few months behind on features and performance.

  4. Warn about improper Excel Formatting

    Currently, if an excel workbook is uploaded with no data formatted in tables, no data set appears, and no pop-up appears informing the user. The application should provide feedback to the user when no data is imported (perhaps a link to the "Formatting Excel Workbook" section of the knowledge base)

  6. Ability to convert a location to a country

    When filtering on locations, you get a huge list of GPS coordinates, and I think it would be nice to have an ability to convert those coordinates to Countries or cities.

  7. Rapid Field Selection

    In addition to dragging fields from the "Fields" pane, it would be nice to click into a visualization area (such as "Axis", "Legend", "Value", etc.) and start typing. Each area would become an autocomplete box, and populate a field name based on what you have typed so far.

    Additionally, you could move between slots (perhaps from "Axis" to "Legend") by hitting tab or enter. This keystroke would confirm the autocompleted value currently in progress and move you to the next field.

    The end result would be the ability to click into "Axis", type the first characters of your field name,…

  8. Allow users to save a report under a group where they are an admin

    I build a report under "My Workspace" it would be great to be able to save a copy of the report to a group I created and not need to recreate the report in the other workspace.

  12. source path as column on csv import

    When importing a bunch of files, for example csv files, it would be greate if the import path and some of the file attributes are imported as well.
    At the moment we need to build a function that adds the file and reads the conent as sub table that need to be expanded and so on.

    Adding columns for the file attributes will give us more abilities to play with these data also.

  14. Data Preview tooltip in Choose Columns dialog

    The Need
    • Often there are lots of columns to choose from.
    • Sometimes, there is no header row which makes column names indistinguishable
    • Even if there are column names, these are often cryptic or abbreviated or ambiguous or similar
    • All columns cannot be seen visually in the available screen width
    • The Choose Columns dialog is modal making scrolling of the underlying window impossible
    • This requires lot of trial and error… choose the columns you are sure about, Click Ok, Scroll and check more columns, invoke the dialog again, and so on.

    Suggested Solution
    The Choose…
