How can we improve Power BI?

Allow Excel Online to connect to a Power BI data source via 'Analyse In Excel'

Now that Power BI has the Analyse in Excel function, can you please make Excel Online (Excel in a browser) connect to the Power BI data source so slicers and timelines function and the workbook can refresh from the Power BI data source?

        There are times when a standard Excel pivot table makes a bit more sense than the PowerBI table and matrix. With PowerBI hosting 'apps' in SharePoint Online, there is a natural fit for colocating "Analyze in Excel" workbooks for data consumption. The ability to alter the slicer/filter elements of an Excel PivotTable could provide a lower barrier to entry for people to consume PowerBI content if it could be actively filtered in Excel Online.

        Pinning parts of an Excel workbook to a Power BI dashboard only makes sense if the data is up-to-date

        This would be a great complement to Power BI visuals mostly for those used to see data via Excel.

        Doing a full circle from PBI-Excel-PBI with full interactivity totally make sense and I am sure many of Power BI customers who are very heavy in Excel, would love it.
