  2. Less memory intensive JSON parsing

    Make retrieving JSON Rest APIs less memory intensive so it can be done more efficiently.

    I'm not totally sure if this is a bug or a feature request, but when I connect PowerBI to our SQL data source, I can load hundreds of thousands of rows without an issue. If I call our REST API of the same data source, I have to make 500 calls to get the data and memory usage of PowerBI spikes, quickly consuming all my Ram, Page File, and can even bluescreen my PC. I've seen memory usage top 40GB on a dataset that is…

  4. Allow for use of themes created for other Microsoft products

    Our organization uses themes created for Microsoft Suite that incorporate our branding guidelines. It would be beneficial to have access to these themes so all dashboards and reports I create may abide by the branding guidelines implemented within my organization.

  6. Enable Pattern Matching for Parameters that include the use of wildcard characters

    Enable Pattern Matching for Parameters that include the use of wildcard characters.

    e.g if I am searching for '*im*n' in a list of names then 'Simon' could be returned.

  7. Información con Variables en Objetos Visuales

    Opción para tener información en los Objetos Visuales por medio de una variable. Algo similar a la opción "Información sobre Herramientas" pero que se pueda visualizar constantemente. Por ejemplo que al cambiar de nivel en una Jerarquía siempre se vea el año o la información que esté en una variable.

  15. Map Question - Help Needed

    Hi! Question/Request - we have 189 properties in my company located all over US. We have weekly data pull that has 7 metrics, such as Ebidta, Revenue and so on per property with budget to actual comparison. How can I set up any of the map features in PBI, so it will show properties who beat the budget in Green circles on the map and who were below the budget in red? Is that available by any chance? thank you!!

  17. Minimum time interval for graphs when using date slicer

    Currently when displaying graphs with larger time intervals (Daily, Weekly) and the date slicer is used, if the date slice is small enough the graph goes into even smaller intervals (hourly) even though data doesn't exist at this smaller interval.

    Please set a minimum time interval to the date slicer or graphs with a continuous X-axis to preserve the integrity of such graphs when using the date slicer.

  18. Moving visuals to top of report

    Visuals menu/drag bars should be able to go off the report on top so that visuals can be moved all the way to the top of the report. Currently the menu/drag bar prevents visuals from reaching the top of the report.

  19. Display when special characters are in a column

    It is difficult to tell whether special whitespace characters like line feeds and breaks are present in the data. This causes my relationships to break and I spent a large amount of time until I found out there was a carriage return in the columns.

    also the Replace Values does not allow you to remove a carriage return and line feed, only add them. Please enable a method to remove these whitespace characters. trim() does not work.

  20. From MapPoint to PowerBI

    Until few years ago, I used to work with MapPoint to display data in a map.
    Now MapPoint is dismissed, I guess because it was replaced by PBI/Bing Maps.
    Same useful tools in MapPoint are lost In PBI such as the possibility to insert images (company logos or others) instead of the pushpins within the map.
    It would be great if you could consider to improve this and other functions that were available in MapPoint, which were very useful for data storytelling.
