I tested the "Sync Slicers" new functionality and it's a very good option but it doesn't work with a Custom Visual, for example, Chiclet Slicer. Chiclet Slicer is a Custom Visual visualizations widely used and it will be very important that this new functionality work in it well.926 votes
We are working to fully support sync slicers in the custom visuals platform.
The only supported case (for now) is when custom viz slicer is using one data field. it is a limitation and we are working on it.
Currently there is no notification option for failed dataflows when they are scheduled to be refreshed.
If it would be possible to have the same email notification that is currently available for dataset refreshes?84 votes
Thank you for your feedback. We started working on the refresh failure notifications.
It's great that Power BI already has the capability to run R scripts for data transformation. It would be even better if we could run Python script.2,265 votes

We’ll close out the idea once we make the experience generally available in the coming months.
Add the ability to take or transfer ownership of a dataflow to another user. Currently all I see is a message indicating only the owner can edit the dataflow. This is needed to enhance maintainability and enable enterprise level support of a dataflow if the owner is out of office or leaves the company. At least the same take ownership option that is already available with datasets.18 votes
Please allow Tooltip Pages to be used in matrix/table also - not just in charts.

We are actively working on this! I’ll update the idea when it’s completed.
I've been using the Power BI REST API to get the list of reports/datasets/dashboards/tiles/members/etc.), but don't see any option to get the list of Apps and the contents of a specific App (reports, dashboards, app members).
Please add this to the REST API!
We really need the Apps list and app contents (reports list, etc) and security information (members that have access to a specific App).
We would like to have some extra features to the recently release Premium Capacity Monitoring App. Would it be possible to add the dataset size and the consumed capacity per dataset, instead of just the total?12 votesstarted · AdminSwati Gupta- MSFT (Power BI) (Power BI Product Manager, Microsoft Power BI) responded
Thank you for your suggestion.We are actively working on making improvements in this area and plan to include the metrics you mentioned.

PowerPoint Export to take into account filters that have been applied to the report prior to export. This is essential for users which need to filter on historic dates and then wish to export the report with those details.1,428 votes
We’ve begun work on this feature and a few others related to the export and subscription scenarios you have been looking for updates around. In addition to keeping you updated on the progress here, a blog post I’m posting on the Power BI blog next week will provide a look at what’s happening now and in the next few months in these areas.
For the Premium Capacity reports, show actual CPU utilization of Premium capacity rather than just CPU high utilization (represented by the number of times the CPU exceeded 80% utilization). At the moment we have no idea how close we are to breaching CPU performance limits. We could be close to 79% permanently without knowing.8 votesstarted · AdminSwati Gupta- MSFT (Power BI) (Power BI Product Manager, Microsoft Power BI) responded
Thank you for your suggestions. We are working to make improvements in this area.
Extend the existing email subscription feature to allow me to specify exactly *when* the email is sent out - e.g. send me the email at 2pm every Monday.

Hi everyone, sorry for the delay posting a status update. We’ve started work on this feature and expect to have out in the near future. We’ll update the status on this once we’ve shipped!
Admin ability to to clear the RAM/memory within a premium node. At times the memory seems to run hot and functions seem to be halted due to high memory usage. As an admin, its near impossible to troubleshoot what is consuming memory. If I could clear it out to get things working properly again, that would be great. It would also allow me to troubleshoot the root cause better4 votesstarted · AdminSwati Gupta- MSFT (Power BI) (Power BI Product Manager, Microsoft Power BI) responded
Thank you for your feedback. We are continuously working to make improvements in this area. Keep an eye on for power bi blog post on the upcoming app releases and will require you to reinstall the latest version of the app.
It would be helpful to be able to print custom visualizations to PowerPoint. Currently there is just a message saying that the visualizations are not currently supported. Even allowing the visuals to be frozen in a picture format would be acceptable. Thanks.487 votes
We started the process of supporting custom visuals for Export to PowerPoint. you can expect some of the more popular custom visuals to be supported soon.
It would be nice if there is an option to have a scheduled export of a report to PDF. A nice to have feature would be to directly e-mail it to people so they are being notified of the latest report.3,865 votes
Hi everyone, wanted to provide an update on this feature. We’ve started work on Export to PDF for Power BI reports in the service, and you’ll see if come in two parts, Initially, you’ll have the ability to export as you do today with PPTX, where you export the file on demand. In the second part, you’ll have the ability to attach a PDF to an e-mail subscription and set a schedule for it.
In addition, as an FYIm the newly announced paginated reports (RDL) in Power BI has export to PDF support already in place, so I encourage you to check that out as well.
The current capacity usage report just shows Good/Marginal/Critical. This information does not help with troubleshooting or capacity planning. Request to have more detailed report (e.g., line graph) with historical data. This will help with troubleshooting issue if we see usage spikes or with capacity planning for growth trend.12 votesstarted · AdminSwati Gupta- MSFT (Power BI) (Power BI Product Manager, Microsoft Power BI) responded
We have added a tile for memory usage and line graph with exportable data for average memory usage per hour for the past 7 days. We are actively working on improving this experience.
Usage metrics now expose per-user information - i.e. the names of the users that are accessing dashboards and reports.
Allow admins control which users' names and info are picked up by the feature. In other words, admins can choose to "anonymize" certain sets of users so that their names do not appear in usage metrics.22 votes
The ‘Full Screen mode’ could become more useful for presenting reports on dedicated large screens if it became just a bit more dynamic. Whilst it is currently possible to scroll through report sheets by clicking the arrows in the bottom right corner, it would be most valuable to be able to automate such browsing. A solution could be to introduce a “Play” button that starts a slideshow scrolling through the available report sheets according to a customizable time interval.2,685 votes

Thanks for your interest in this connector! With this update of the Power BI Desktop, there is now a preview of the PowerApps Common Data Service connector. You can read more about the preview here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-february-feature-summary/#cds
Once the Common Data Service team expands the number of people with access to the connector to everyone, we will remove the “beta” tag and close the suggestion as completed.
On the one hand, custom visuals are great. Thanks to the engaged community we have new visualizations.
On the other hand, those visuals are buggy, unoptimized, not fully integrated, lacking functionality and sometimes of poor visual quality.
Hope the PowerBI team picks up on the shortcomings and improves them or release their own official versions.

We are investing to constantly improve the custom visuals and the platform. performance, reliability, feature-set, etc.
Most visuals are maintained by the community, and we encourage them to improve. recently the custom visuals gallery was migrated to the Office store, where reviews and ratings are available, so I encourage you to go and review visuals and ask for features directly from the developers.
