How can we improve Power BI?

Clarity in Power BI Desktop over which features are Pro only

Allow the choice between the standard Desktop features or the applicable license for the signed-in user.

Then, either restrict access to the unlicensed features, highlight them in the UI or notify the user when the feature is accessed.

    Not only is it not clear which features are "Pro", but it also takes time for Power BI to start limiting access to "Pro" users only. So, you may spend substantial time working with a "Pro" feature without realizing it, successfully inviting non-Pro users to access the data model. Then a day or two later, BAM, the restrictions fall in place and only "Pro" users can access the dashboard. I've had this happen with Scheduling (which really shouldn't be a Pro feature) and Groups. Make your restrictions clear and enforce them immediately!
