  2. 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.

  3. create multiple apps from same workspace

    create multiple apps from same workspace infect from same Dataset without replicating the dataset multiple times.
    only option we have now is to update the app and only one app per workspace can be created which a kind of restrict the workspace usability.
    If we can create multiple apps share it with different users without creating multiple workspace ... means same dataset no dataset replication, will save the storage as well.

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Calculated measures when live connected to MDX cubes

    In May 2017 Power BI Desktop started supporting creation of DAX measures when working in live connect mode to an external SSAS model: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-feature-summary/

    Vote on this idea if you want support for calculated measures against multidimensional models too.

  9. Dynamic Date Slicer (improve relative date slicer)

    This is a repost of my idea that was closed as completed, but the 'relative date slicer doesn't allow any of the described request hence my idea is not implemented....

    The new date slicer is awesome, but it would be so nice if you could set a dynamic date selection instead of a static. With a static filter the user will always have to set the dates before the saved report makes sense - especially as the report gets older.

    Dynamic options could be
    YTD, QTD, MTD, WTD, Today, This Year, This Quarter, This Month, This Week and so on.

    The relative date slicer (a Preview feature as of June ‘17) gets us close to this with the ’This Month’ or ‘This Year’ settings. That is a dynamic date selection that updates based on the current system date. We plan to add a ‘YTD’/‘MTD’ option to specifically select a range from the start of the month/year up to today, hopefully that’ll address the remaining requirements!

  10. Clustered+stacked Chart

    A column/bar chart with both clustered and stacked features (stacked clustered bar/column chart).

  11. DAX Query Language Visual

    I see big value in creating a visual that can display the results of a DAX query. One way this could be deployed is a follows.
    * Add the new visual to the report canvas
    * Write a DAX query that returns a table (of course) and add this to the visual
    * The visual would respect any cross filtering coming from the report just like any other visual.

    This would give report writers very granular control to display records without having to use a table visual and a measure that triggers the display of the correct records.

    At the moment we don’t have any plans to implement this. It sounds like it’s mostly useful for learning/training? If there are other ‘production’ scenarios that you think it’d be useful, where a regular table/matrix wouldn’t work, please let us know in the comments!

  12. Hyperlink in Visuals

    You should be able to insert a hyperlink field into a visual so when a user selects on the visual, it can take them to the desired page.

  13. Totals in stacked column charts

    During several presentations I get questions regarding the total of stacked columns. In the current situation you can select to label all the parts of the stacked column but no grand total. I would like to see the option to add a label to the Visuals which shows the total of the stacked column (this counts for values only). Ideally this total would deviate together with the drilldowns you select, so it stays interactive whatever filters you select or subsets you create on your dashboard.

  14. Copy/paste the data behind the visual in Power BI to other applications

    I can copy the visual either as image or data table and paste it in other applications.

  15. Composite models when connected to SQL Server Analysis Services Tabular (SSAS)

    We really love the new feature of 'Composite Models' in the Power BI July 2018 update! This enables us to join custom lists with DirectQuery sources.

    It would also be beneficial if this would also work when connected to SSAS Tabular in DirectQuery.
    This would stronlgy improve the enterprise features of Power BI.

  16. set an exact column width in tables/matrixes

    Please allow the column widths to be set to an exact width not only by dragging with the mouse. It is very fiddly and time consuming to adjust the columns to the desired width with the mouse. You could also enhance this by giving an option to set same width for all columns in a table.

    So, if you could give us the ability to manipulate the column widths like we can in Excel that would be perfect.

  17. Increase Export Data Limits

    In late 2016, Power BI improved our export data options to allow exporting up to 150,000 rows to Excel from a visual on a Power BI dashboard for Pro users. If you require higher limits, please vote on this idea. If you have more specific requirements, please leave them in the comments.

  18. Clear all slicers

    Clear ALL slicers on a page with one click, perhaps an addition to a slicer for a clear all slicers button or perhaps a custom visualization that is a button to press to clear all slicers.

  20. Drill Mode By Default

    It should be good if we can set Drill Mode ON/OFF by DEFAULT instead of clicking manually on the arrow every time on report.
