How can we improve Power BI?

R visuals in Report Server

I think it will be great if report server can support custom R visualization for more data insight!

        Yes of course, we really need this feature in PBIRS! You can't do every Analytics with onboard PBIRS-Features. I hope you will really rethink your decision.

        I really hoped this would appear in latest release. Nope. If you arent going to support R in PBIRS, why is it available in the IDE? I work for an org that wants better BI tools but dont want to go to the cloud. I hoped PBIRS would be the answer, but its still not there...

        Indeed, when there are no of other BI tools supporting R with their server version, unfortunately power BI is exception. I am not sure what most I can do with desktop version for my client in this context.
        Initially, I had stuck with Arabic character set, and found Power BI Report Server neither support Arabic character set nor ODBC connection over Direct query, hence our client (A renowned bank in KSA) rejected Power BI as a prospective BI tool.
        Anyway, if this is the approach, I think soon we (power BI developers) must switch to another tool.
        I strongly agree to R integration with Power BI report server.
        Best of Luck.

        We really need this feature... please bring it to power bi..... it should have all the feature SSRS

        We definitely need R in PBIRS. Cloud is not solution for large companies (for legal and security restrictions)

        This is definitely needed for use in organisations that cannot for legal reasons move data into the cloud.

        Please add the functionality to have R Visuals added to Published report on the server. This will take power BI to the next level. it is an absolute need in organisations like us were we need to publish and share dashboards online.

        If you won't support R in PBI RS then please enhance the Reporting Services .NET API so we can implement our own custom .NET rs component which allows interactivity. Rendering an Image is to weak in this century. Please add features so we can create interactive/HTML/JavaScript components for reporting services...
        Different BI functionality between PBIRS <-> PB Service, Ecel2016 <-> Excel O365<-> Office Office server, SSAS <-> PBIRS does not improve our trust in MS to move to a pure cloud solution..

        I agree toooo.....

        This is an absolute necessity for my team to continue using Power BI RS, we will be looking for a new tool if this is really not a planned feature.

        The more i see of Power BI the less excited I become. A lot of limitations for those that can't go to the cloud. Think we'll just continue with Qlik and use advanced analytics.

        Are these the excite a proc that outputs an image as a binary to the database and then embed that image in the report? Cos that idea is a horrible hack.
