How can we improve Power BI?

Support switching SSAS connect model from "Connect Live" to "Import"

Once a report is created with an SSAS source using Connect Live, the mode cannot currently be switched to Import. This is frustrating if we have a report that we decide we want to publish to the web.

        I have same scenario where we have created Power BI reports using live connection. Now, we want to change live connection to import data with minimal impact to visuals. Please suggest any alternative

        this is very annoying, i understand imported to live, but from live to imported, how hard can it be?

        Also if you want to add another data source to a "Connect Live" report you currently need to rebuild the report. There should be a "transform" from "Connect Live" to "Import" to make it easy to create data mash-ups.
