How can we improve Power BI?

Improve sorting

Improve sorting options, maybe also a panel for a custom sorting in each visual object (kind of sorting designer)

    I'd like to add a sort column or row to help sort the items properly but then hide the item from the end users.

    Please can you make custom sorting easier!! Setting up custom sort tables and relationships is very time consuming and not user friendly!! Custom sorting is such a core functionality.

    Enhanced sorting capability is strongly desired as existing business processes and workflows expect to see lists in a defined (mostly custom) order.

    See how Tableau does this. It's simple and powerful. I absolutely hate having to create sort order columns every time I want to change a sort order.

    In particular I'd like to be able to sort the values in a table and lock the user from changing it.  Additionally, I'd like to be able to base my sorting on a field that I'm not necessarily showing in the table (or at least a field I can "hide").  Multi-level sorting of course would be an additional great add.  Perhaps sort options should be in the filters sections.  Obviously this might apply to other visualizations besides tables - maricies in particular. 

    Thanks.
