Please allow Copy/Paste functionality from Power BI Desktop. We often need to recreate PBI reports in Excel just so we can Copy tables or charts and paste into PowerPoint or simply email it. Need stronger integration with other Office products. Copy/paste seems so basic.
Note: Our company uses PBI Desktop and PBI Report Server (on SQL server) - cloud services are not an option because of Protected Health Information.1,806 votes
We shipped copy and pasting visuals between .pbix files in November. You can learn more about this feature here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-november-2018-feature-summary/#copyPaste This is in addition to the copy data features we added in September: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-september-2018-feature-summary/#copy
Note that you can get reports into PowerPoint using the export to PowerPoint feature, and if you want specific improvements make sure to vote on those ideas.
If you want to copy an image to your clipboard instead of the actual visual so you can reuse it anywhere, make sure to vote on this idea: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/11698812-copy-screenshot-of-visual-to-clipboard And you can vote on this idea for more copy data scenarios (such as whole table of data to clipboard) https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/6696392
There is currently no tool tip for a button. Now that buttons can perform actions, it would be very useful to have the option to add a tool tip (or hover event message) rather than the default "click to follow link".301 votes
We are excited to announce that we shipped this feature with our December update of Power BI Desktop. Check out the blog to learn more: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-december-2018-feature-summary/#tooltips
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?122 votes
You can now receive email notification on failed dataflow refresh. Go to dataflows settings to enable email notifications.
On PowerBi Desktop we can get data using Python Scripts, but after published we can't schedule a refresh data for this connection. The PowerBI returns:
"Query contains unknown funtion name: Python.Execute."
It would be better if all features on desktop would work on web too.144 votes

The March 2018 update introduced visual header control at the report level.
Since this is currently an 'all-or-nothing' feature, please evolve this so we can control visual headers on a per visual basis.560 votes
We completed this as part of our July release! If you haven’t use the new header yet, make sure to turn it on for your existing reports and try out all the new features. You can also read about it in our July blog post: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-july-2018-feature-summary/#visualHeader
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.56 votes
Now you can take over a dataflow ownership using “Take over” in Dataflows settings!
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.2,277 votes
The current bookmarking feature requires report creators to define bookmarks. Ideally, users would be able to save personalized bookmarks (similar to web browser) in addition to the author's pre-defined bookmarks.
For example, I might have a project management report or sales by stores. Each user of the report may have their own set of projects or stores that they want to quickly navigate between. These are relevant to the current users and not other users of the reports.1,172 votes
Thank you for all for being patient. I’m excited to announce that we’re bringing personal bookmarks to all reports in the Power BI service. It’s started to roll out today – check out my blog for more details: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-personal-bookmarks-in-the-power-bi-service/
I would like to be able to create an entity based off of a custom SQL Query instead of having to use the Power Query tools. The problem I am having is that one of the tables I am working with is too large and results in a timeout when Dataflows tries to bring it in. I think that a custom SQL Query will alleviate this issue by allowing me to prefilter my data before it comes into Dataflows.79 votes
We shipped Native SQL query support. You can learn more about this feature here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-dataflows-january-updates/
The current drill through capability does not appear to consider an active filter/slicer value for a visual unless the dimension being filtered is included in the parent visual. I think it would be helpful if it did.
For example; a table of customers subject to a slicer for specific stores should pass on both the customer and store values if these dimensions are both listed as drill through filters.878 votes
As of the May 2018 release of Power BI Desktop you can now define your drillthrough to ‘Keep all filters’ which will apply the selections from slicers and other visuals to the target page as well.
Power BI Desktop (optimized for Report Server) allows you to define roles with DAX filters. However, when reports are published to the Report Server, there is no way to assign these roles to specific users/groups, so we can't yet implement row-level security on the Report Server. It would be great it Report Server was able to support dynamic row-level security similar to the Power BI Service.983 votes
We shipped this support in the January 2019 version of Power BI Report Server, which you can download here – https://aka.ms/pbireportserver
Thanks so much for all your votes on this idea!
Right now, by design, we cannot use the filter functionality when we are in landscape mode in the mobile app, in order we can use the report/page filters
Please add this functionality in a way we can use it as in vertical (portrait) mode
I tested for iOS or Android and it doesn't work in both... this is by design? Or maybe I'm doing a wrong configuration of the PBIX file?
Thanks for your comments,
Filters are now enabled in landscape reports, in addition to phone reports
PowerBI needs to have the ability to offer conditional formatting of based on the comparison of 2 or more metrics. For example if metric A = metric B then change the font and highlight color of the cell to red.
If metric A > metric B and metric A < metric C then change the font and highlight color of the cell to green.
This should be unlimited for how many colors can be used. Other BI tools offer this feature.
Note that this is different than what PowerBI currently calls ‘conditional formatting’1,722 votes
As of our May release, you can now conditionally format a column by another field. Which means you can create a column that does your comparisons and then use that to format anything in your table or matrix. If you have other suggestions for conditional formatting options, make sure to vote on those as well!
When need a button to clear all filters on screen256 votes
Thanks everyone for your feedback. We recently announced Persistent Filters in the Power BI service. As part of this feature, we added a “Reset to default” button that clears all the filters users have applied on the report to the author’s published view. More details here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-persistent-filters-in-the-service/
The new bookmark feature looks great. Would be useful if you could have collections of bookmarks for the presentation mode. For example, we have multiple clients that we provide campaign analysis for. It would be useful to use the same base report for these presentations but with the ability to create a group of bookmarks that are specific to that presentation. That way only one report can be used for every presentation and multiple users could have their own set of bookmarks to view a report in the ways that they specifically care about.336 votes
I’m happy to announce that bookmark groups are here! Check out the details in our August release blog: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-august-2018-feature-summary/#bookmarks
As of now only one parameter value can be passed in a filter using the syntax:
<PowerBI report URL>?filter=<Table Name 1>/<Column Name 1> eq 'Value 1' and <Table Name 2>/<Column Name 2> eq 'Value 2'
But we cannot pass more than one value for say <Column Name 1>37 votes
This feature has been released. See more here- https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-url-filters#filter-on-multiple-fields
If you have 2 visualizations that you are toggling through a Bookmark image, and have slicers on your page, if you change a slicer value and click on the image to toggle to a different viz, the slicers value will not be retained. For instance, if I select Canada in a slicer, click on the toggle, the slicer will change back to whatever was saved in the bookmark. It would be nice to have an option to "retain" the current selections. This would allow a user to make different selections in the slicer, and then when the click on the toggle button, it would retain those values instead of using the slicer value when the bookmark was saved.

Hi y’all! Our December update to Power BI Desktop is out, and it has added bookmarking flexibility that should let you retain your filter/slicer state while still toggling visuals. Learn about it in my blog post: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-december-feature-summary/#bookmarkFlexibility
For the Matrix and the Table Visuals (and others), tooltips simply show the value of the item over which the Pointer hovers. The behaviour of the tooltips differs from PBI Desktop to Browser in Terms of Duration of being shown and the truncation of longer texts.
Other visuals (e.g. bar chart) have a customizable tooltip that can be filled by a special field well. Please add the same functionality to table and Matrix visuals!274 votes
We added this in our July release! Read the details on my blog: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-july-2018-feature-summary/#tableTooltips
There was a nice feature released end 2018 / beginning 2019 allowing direct PDF export from PowerBi Service. Unfortunately this does NOT work for custom visuals, as e.g. the hierarchy slicer. I would love to see this feature also working for custom visuals (see also my community post: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/Export-to-pdf-Bug-Using-hierarchy-slicer/m-p/636281#M63591 )4 votes
certified Power BI visuals from AppSource do support export to PPT and PDF.

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?15 votes
