How can we improve Power BI?

Be able to easily switch between accounts

Would like to be able to easily switch between different organisational accounts. As an ISV I support multiple customers with multiple logins, switching between them all is a RPITA.

    At a minimum, PBI Desktop should manage Switch Account just like Office apps, i.e. remember accounts and credentials. This is very convenient when you load/save Excel files to Onedrive for Business.

    I'd also love to be able to associate specific PBIX files with user accounts, so that opening a client file switches me to their account.

    This is required in big time for us as well. As a consultant you work on multiple client projects and it would be very useful to switch between accounts

    Huge need for us! We drive adoption at a variety of clients. Not being able to see which account I am logged into is bad enough! But I really need to be able to switch easily between accounts as well.

    Thanks! Scott

    as a consulting guy, I agree. I have to manage multiple clients and they are switching to Power BI. start to be hard to demonstrate the Cortana integration from my laptop or phone.

    Agree. it is a PITA. As more clients embrace it, it will get even harder
