  3. Import data view

    The import data view is not logical. The import side starts with "connect to the data..." and the connect side starts with "bring your excel wb into..."

  5. Ʃ Values as Legend or Axis as in Excel

    In Excel you have four sections where you can add column data: Ʃ Values, Axis (Category), Legend (Series), and Filter. Into the Legend and Axis sections you can add Ʃ Values. In which case if I have 2 value columns A and B the Axis points would be A and B.

    Hopefully this makes sense, or you could try it out in Excel.

  6. How about a Microsoft Group File and/or Yammer file as a data source?

    We can now share files in O365 many different ways. Using a file from an O365 Group or from Yammer--and optionally embedding a PowerBi report in the group or Yammer feed--would be interesting.

  8. Any user ask for extracting raw data from reports

    Many users ask to have the ability to extract the source Data from any chart (optionnaly with the current filters), in order to paste it back in Excel, Share with a coworker or customer to send details or rework this data with other tools. May be useful to have a look on it ?

  9. App Store Infrastructure for Visual Plugins

    I've just completed some entries for your Visualization contest. It was a time consuming and laborious effort. I think that not too many developers will want to contribute future visuals, features and bug requests without sufficient motivation.

    If you really want to encourage developers to write visualizations for Power BI, you should setup some kind of "Visualizations App Store" infrastructure where a customer or consultant can buy a license for the visualization in a variety of per seat / per year options and the revenue can be split between Microsoft and the developer.

    Microsoft could also have an all-you-can-eat model…

  11. Add the ability to use FILTERS in "Get Data" in Power BI Desktop.

    Today, the only way to add a filter to the GET DATA process in Power BI is to enter a custom query. that means that it is impossible to access large datasets without timing out because the "tagging fields" process pulls back too much data without a filter. Can you add the ability to use filters in the wizard, as you can now in Power Pivot, Tabular, and in Excel in the data designer wizard, into the Power BI Desktop app?

  12. Query Editing: Add reverse of ToTable() command to ribbon, for turning a table into a list

    Currently, it's trivial to turn a list into a table, but not the other way around. Many transformations are more natural on a list than a table.

  14. Content Pack Access vs Create/Publish

    In our business environments it is difficult to justify to customer the need for some viewers of content packs to have create and publish access also.

    Ideally I am requesting that Content Pack be split by level or configurable in order to have some people have view access only and others have create and view both.

    (How SharePoint tiers, as context)

  15. Add Feature to tie data to new Shapes

    Would be great if we could tie data to the new Shapes feature that was introduced in the Sept update. For example being able to show/hide a shape, or change its properties dynamically would allow more interesting dashboard designs.

  20. datetime

    Add support for DateTime as first-order data column, not just as label. Currently DateTime can only be displayed with Count Of.
