Data Category for other protocols ("file://", "ftp://", "ms-windows-store://" and others)
PowerBI should also treat other protocols as a hyperlink not just ones that start with "http://"
Maybe there should be a "Protocol" or "Hyperlink" Data Category
Yes please - need support for IM: (chat) like mailto: for email

I have a LOB UWP app that handles custom protocol links. I'd like to be able to click on it in PowerBI to launch the UWP app.

I agree, we have a custom application that we would like to link to.

It would be very helpful to be able to click on a link to a folder location and the Windows Explorer opens to that folder.

Its long pending demand and without such improvement, Power BI cannot survive against other competitors.

Even updating the Web Page import to interpret an ftp index as HTML, as (Chrome and IE etc. do) would open up a pile of data sources on ftp for Power BI. And assuming you can do a data refresh against such sources...

especially file:// would be awesome!
