  4. QuickBooks Online App - Ability to download more than one company from the same link.

    We have several companies linked to one account in Quickbooks.
    At present we can only select one company to link to Power BI.
    Is it possible to link all or selected companies from our account in Quickbooks to Power BI.

  5. Url filtering in Power BI Mobile and Windows App

    Currently there is no option to open a specific report with URL parameters in power bi mobile and windows app . This feature is really important to open a generic report with personalized parameters . This option is however available in web version but it is equally important if we use it in mobile or windows app.

  7. Remove Legend Category Limit on Visuals

    Not sure if this is a bug or an idea but currently there is a limit as to the number of category items than can be used as a legend. Please remove this limit.

  9. Add Gradient as background for both page and report

    the background choice is very limited, can not compare with the existing excel, even not other BI tools. Gradient is definitely needed. grid line,etc general and basic background should be added as well

  11. Ability to use measures in analytics

    Instead of having only fixed values in constant lines in analytics, it would be great if a measure could be used. Eg. to create a line from the same day last week as a reference line.

  12. Allow to connect to SharePoint Search directly

    It would be beneficial if one could connect directly to the SharePoint search and have the data also refresh in the Online service. Most of the data we use is spread in lists over a high number of sites. And while there is a possibility to just call the odata feed of every site, it takes time and won't refresh in the Online service.

    There is a way of doing it shown here: https://sharepoint-specialist.nu/connect-power-bi-online-to-sharepoint-search-using-rest-ca6e681233b8

    Wrapping it into a simple connector would reduce this rather complex M code.

  13. Power BI Server manage Thresholds

    I want the possibility that a user / account can set there own thresholds on the data. For example on a table. The colours on the table can be adjusted by the user logged in.

  14. PBIRS should allow multiple Live Connections for the same report

    Pretty much like SSRS, you should be able to use more than one dataset in the same PBIX deployed in PBIRS.

  15. Set Gauge Max/Min/Target with Measure or Field

    Allow to use Measures as Max/Min/Target in Gauge Visualization, right now I can use static values, but I have a sales target which changes everymonth, It would be great to use a Field or Mesause to set that target.

  16. Increase row limit of data imported to custom visuals

    Currently, we are limited to importing 30,000 rows/data points and that is simply not sufficient for a lot of enterprise visuals. Please expand this to a drastically increased number or just remove the limit.

  17. Add ability to show n-size (sample size) on charts and graphs

    Add the ability to show sample sizes in charts. For example, if I had a chart showing the average employee engagement score by ethnicity, add the ability to show the number of records that contribute to each aggregate score.

    Additionally, it would be helpful to have the option to exclude categories with small sample sizes (for example, if there were only two respondents to the survey who identify as a certain demographic, then do not display an average for that demographic to preserve their anonymity).

  19. Custom Color Preview

    When selecting from the custom color box it would be nice to see a visual preview of what color my mouse is hovering over. It is quite difficult to see exactly what color I'm selecting until after you've already selected it.
