How can we improve Power BI?

Dynamic Visibility

Based on certain criteria being met, being able to dynamically hide/show a visual can add more flexibility to the tool. For example, use some kind of slicer to indicate whether a bar chart should be displayed or a table.

        Please add this function. We really need dynamic visibility on conditions being met or not.

        Would bring much more flexibility to published dashboards, both for controls on a report page as well as for report pages in a .pbix file / published dashboard. Should be easy to implement now that Show/Hide is available on Selection Pane. Just tie to a Boolean measure instead of a constant.

        This is a basic requirement for all BI dashboarding tools, creates many limitations when building dashboards compared to Tableau.

        Hide/show visuals should also have the ability to depend on the user role / RLS.
        Eg. a user assigned to role A is seeing different visuals than a user assigned to role B. To take it a little bit further: ideally this is implemented in the dashboards too.
        We have lots of reports where different user groups with interest in different granularities look at a report..team manager => show his team(s) & upper management => show just the totals.

        Ability to move from a generic pie chart to a blastogram - for example, pie chart shows Europe as one unit, when user clicks on Europe, the display shows each country separately in an enhanced display

        Show other tooltips/graphs based on the level in a matrix (hierarchy). I have sales in countries (header 1), cities (header 2) and streets (header 3) in a matrix structure and i want my tooltip to show the details on each level. So when i hover over/select a country, i want to see a breakdown of all sales in the cities that are in that specific country. When i hover over/select a city, i want to see a breakdown of sales in the streets that are in that specific city. Basically I need to see another graph based on the "selection" in my hierarchy.

        Bookmarks aren't allways a solution. I need it to be based on conditions and not based on people clicking on an image.

        "This visual has exceeded the available resources." I could solve this issue! Must needed feature.

        There should be an option to delete visuals automatically , if they have an error , say I have 5 charts, but in some case I am only supplied with data for only 3 charts. I want the other 2 charts which would show an error to be cleared up by itself, so I show the 3 charts for this case , and if I have data for all 5 charts , then I can show all 5. Also, somehow formatting the structure , so that the whitespace remaining due to cleared charts can be sorted up.
