  3. Feedback.

    It would be good if the iPad version was as functional as PBI desktop, especially for designing reports.

  4. Change the Size of Data Labels

    Can you please make it possible to change the size of the data labels? They're really small and hard to see.

  5. custom visuals error on the report and warning on the top

    Currently everytime we open a report with custom visual, the visual frame contains an error and warning on the top. It doesn't look nice to the end users with an error at display. Understand the reason of having warning on the top. What about no more warning after being accepted once until a change is made to the custom vistual?

  6. Microsoft Access as a data source.

    We have built a fantastic database using Microsoft Access and hoped to begin using Power BI along with it. What a HUGE disappointment to discover that Microsoft Access is not a data source option. We hope it will be in the near future. Salesforce and Hoopla are hot on our heels! Our employees prefer Access.

  9. Provide a dialog to edit the Changed Type step in Power query

    I would like to be able to see what types are being set by the Changed Type step.
    One has to go into the advanced editor to find the types being set by this step.

  11. Code analysis issues from VSO builds

    It would be nice to be able to track code analysis issues produced during the build. I'd want to be able to group by different categories to see if we are getting better over time.

    Bonus: Determine what CA rules are actually enabled by inspecting the project files in the source code.

  16. Ability to see the filepath in OneDrive for a Workbook

    When viewing your workbook settings, it would be very handy to see the filename and OneDrive filepath of each datasource.

  17. Allow pinned reports on the dashboard to show any filters that were used in the description by default

    pinning filtered reports to dashboards makes it difficult to know what the filter once was on the dashboard. You must manually add it in the description after pinning. I want my dashboard to show all items that have been "Accepted" and when I click the report it should show me the default view for the report (all items pending in my case). Dashboard and Report default views are NOT the same...Dashboard is a quick summary and the Report is my drill down.

  18. Migration of existing Exel workbooks does not work properly

    Migration of existing Excel workbooks that refresh successfully in old Power BI does not work as advertised. I have several reports with Project Online OData plus on-prem data sources that have successfully refreshed for months. New Power BI would not recognize the OData sources because they were not Power Query. This has caused me a lot of extra work.

  19. Automatically close the left pane when you open the Filter pane

    Once you click on a Filter, you usually no longer need access to the My Workspace pane. Why not have an option to automatically close it when you start filtering in order to give the user more real estate without having to close the pane
