Any chance of connecting to PostgreSQL data Source with the new Enterprise Gateway, we can with the Personal Gateway, but really need the Enterprise Gateway182 votes
The work is currently in progress, and this should be available in production soon.

The new date slicer is awesome, but it would be so nice if you could set a dynamic date selection instead of a static. With a static filter the user will always have to set the dates before the saved report makes sense - especially as the report gets older.
Dynamic options could be
YTD, QTD, MTD, WTD, Today, This Year, This Quarter, This Month, This Week and so on.958 votes
We are working on this… stay tuned!
I created an Excel workbook with an XML feed from A.W.rd.A.Day: http://wordsmith.org/awad/rss1.xml. I created a table in PV; text in the description of the word is cut off. I upload to PBI and create a tile. Text in the tile is also cut off. Not cool!1,302 votes
We have another update for word wrap. With this update, we added word wrap to matrix row headers: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-february-feature-summary/#wordWrap
We will be releasing more updates to this in stages, and I’ll close the idea once word wrap is fully supported across tables, matrices, and cards.
You need to be able to display % of Total data labels for pie charts and donut charts. This functionality is incredibly easy in both Excel and Power View. Not sure why it isn't possible in Power BI. I understand the same idea can be accomplished with a 100% stacked bar graph but that is not the way I want to visualize the data.14 votes
I see that I can share dashboards in the Power BI -- but can I not share reports? The dashboard would be fine, but slicers can't be pinned yet.637 votes
We have started work on building this feature so you can share reports with others, much the same way as you can share dashboards today. Thank you to everyone who voted for and commented on this idea. Over the coming months as we design and develop the feature we will use your feedback to shape what we build.
Provide analysis of how our Power BI dashboards/reports are being used:
Hit count, Q&A queries ran, filters applied, common actions etc.
This would allow us to track the importance and use of our reporting and see how different users interact with the data.957 votes
Hi everyone! Last week, we released usage reporting for IT admins. You can read more about it on our blog post: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-service-march-update-part-two/#usage We want to add similar metrics for content creators in the future as well.
If you are looking for auditing capabilities (logs of views/export/printing/publishing to web per user or IP) for admins tracking sensitive data or data leaks, please vote on the specific idea: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/13279371
Creating a live connection to SSAS MD or Tabular is working just fine. However, it would be very beneficial to have the ability to create new calculated measures (in MDX). Just like we can create our own calculated measures when writing an MDX query for a SSRS dataset.1,216 votes
Hi everyone. I’m really excited that we’ve started work on this. We’re planning to support DAX measures against Tabular models to begin with, but we’re planning to support MD in the future as well. Stay tuned for more updates!
Please add Collapse/Expand buttons in the Matrix Visualizations. Otherwise when all fields are expanded by default the user would have to scroll a lot to find what they are looking for. I could add a slicer to take user to the data they are looking for but then the rest of the data in the matrix disappears and more specifically the overall totals change!Expand/Collapse buttons would keep the overall totals as intended and totals for other fields while allowing the user to only expand the field they are interested in. Also ability to do conditional formatting for a specific field in the matrix would be nice. Thanks!

Looks like Amanda’s link didn’t work so I wanted to update again. Here’s our documentation on the new preview:
There are a few highly requested features that we know are missing (resizing columns, sorting etc.) and they’re outlined at the bottom of that document .They’ll come in future releases!
You’ll also see a link right at the bottom of that page to a survey where you can gives us your feedback on what we should prioritize on top of this preview.
and please do keep commenting here – we read everything even if we can’t reply to them.
Thanks for the feedback!
At this time, a gateway will not function properly if you are using data sources and one is online and one is on-prem. As soon as the online data source is added, the gateway is designed to gray out because Power BI interprets that it is no longer needed. I would like to be able to combine data sources from both on-prem and online sources together with the use of gateways.461 votes
We’ve started working on supporting oAuth based connections to go thru the gateways in Power BI which is the main blocker to why you can’t combine today. We’re starting with personal gateway, then will support the enterprise gateway (on-premsies data gateway) shortly after. Thank you for your continuous feedback and passion for this area. Stay tuned, we’re getting close!

Currently if auto-refresh fails, the refresh schedule is disabled meaning IT has to go in and re-enable the schedule for each data connection after any ill-timed service outage. Sadly, the schedule is also disabled silently so unless IT checks in on the dashboard they have no way of knowing refresh is turned off.28 votes
As mentioned before, we’ll still disable refresh if we notice that refresh fails consistently, but this time we’ll send you an email to inform you why we turned off refresh.
Add better static analysis, IntelliSense, and general formatting abilities (like allowing tabs) in the "Advanced" editor411 votes
We’re actively working on adding IntelliSense support for M authoring in the Advanced Query Editor, Formula Bar and Custom Column dialog. Expect to see these capabilities in one of our next few monthly updates, hopefully before the end of 2016. : )
As per available documentation, power bi reports and dashboards will be published to microsoft cloud. It is very awesome approach as it saves all overhead of maintaining infrastructure. But there are case where on-premise hosting is required, Can we configure on-premise server to host power bi reports just like SSRS reports?2,547 votes
You can now try the January 2017 Technical Preview: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/sqlrsteamblog/2017/01/17/power-bi-reports-in-sql-server-reporting-services-january-2017-technical-preview-now-available/.
- We plan to release a production-ready version in the next SQL Server release wave. (As previously clarified, we won’t be releasing it in a Service Pack, Cumulative Update, or other form of update for SSRS 2016.)
- We’re targeting availability in mid-2017 for the production-ready version.
- A few more FAQs in this blog post: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/sqlrsteamblog/2016/12/16/power-bi-reports-in-sql-server-reporting-services-feedback-on-the-technical-preview/.
How sexy the data looks is sometimes more important than how accurate it is!
I love a light grey/dark grey colour scheme as much as the next person, but it be great to be able to brand the dashboard with the organisation colours/background watermark/logos etc. Maybe offer an option to modify the default CSS used - similar to how blogging sites like blogger allow you to change your page layouts/colours with a simple admin gui or completely change it by rewriting the CSS1,607 votes
Hey all – We released a preview of theming in the Power BI Desktop! Read all about it on our blog post and let us know what you’d like to see added next to the preview: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-march-feature-summary/#theme
Power Bi should enable R Integration which is the best for Predictive Analytics now-a-days9 votes
I am not sure if this is known or not but with the recent report filter coming in, it doesn't save the filter when you exit out of the report unlike the page filters which save.
If this is intentional would it be possible to have the option to save this filter.14 votes
We should have fix for this in coming weeks
The current R data connector forces you to pull data into R directly from the source (CSV, etc.) in order to run calculations and have the results show up as a PowerBI dataset. It would be very useful to be able to do R calculations from data sources already pulled into PowerBI instead, and then create a new data source from those.16 votes
When I connect to a new data source and don't really know the structure of the data, I have no idea what questions I can ask. I should get some suggestions or a list of what fields are in the data, etc.52 votes
Let custom R script modify current tables, and let the result set be returned back into PowerBI's charting capabilities. This is similar to the idea of having custom SQL statements as filters for your data source. Having R functions modifying your data before graphing is even more powerful.10 votes
This would be very helpful for quickly allowing users to see an insight in the data, have the dashboard tell them who the right person to contact would be to address the issue or opportunity, and easily initiate an email to that person.86 votes
We are starting on this! I’ll update again when it is out.
The current version of Power BI visualsation framework does not support access to the previous levels in a drill-down. I.e. you only get access to the current level when rendering. That makes it very hard to develop visualizations such as pivot tables or breakdown trees. Make this possible and I would gladly submit a stable version of my Breakdown Trees :).2,810 votes
We released a preview of a new matrix visual with today Power BI Desktop release. This new matrix can be used as a source of cross-highlighting, has a stepped layout, can be drilled in to /out of hierarchies, and has performance updates.
You can read all about it in our blog post: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-march-feature-summary/#matrix
During the preview we will be adding even more new features, so keep watch each month for more improvements and let us know in comments what else you’d like to see.
