How can we improve Power BI?

Better Premium Capacity Usage report

The current capacity usage report just shows Good/Marginal/Critical. This information does not help with troubleshooting or capacity planning. Request to have more detailed report (e.g., line graph) with historical data. This will help with troubleshooting issue if we see usage spikes or with capacity planning for growth trend.

    Premium Capacity Usage reports should show not only the exception events, but the actual utilization for CPU and DirectQuery/LiveConnection usage. It should be in the form of line graphs. It should be also possible to get information about contribution from different workspaces, so administritator could take educated decision on moving worksapces between different capacity servers

    I think your vote system is flawed... This Feature requested is started with 6 votes? Yet there are features with thousands of votes that are not even planned ...

    In a scenario where multiple business units are sharing a Premium Capacity, we're unable to determine the percentage of usage per app. This prevents us from accurately charging back to each business unit.

    I agree completely that we cannot purchase additional capacity before it is needed with the limited information.

    Premium Capacity usage/audit reporting is almost non-existent! The storage management for the individual's workspace is better than what we have for Premium (in my opinion). I would think even a simple list in table format with the Workspace Name, Dataset Name, Dataset Size, Associated Reports, Associated Dashboards, and the % of total usage for each item would be something that came out with Premium upon initial release. Seems pretty basic... wonder if they have any plans to update Premium administration tools?

    Agreed, organizations currently have no way to manage or audit Premium capacity usage, or see any detailed information other than the most basic green/yellow/red report. As it currently stands, Power BI Premium is not ready for enterprise use.
