How can we improve Power BI?

URL as function for buttons

Please add the possibility to enter URL's as a function/action for buttons/images. This way it would be very easy to, for example, place links to related websites (i.e. sources) and a button to toggle to a "fullscreen-mode" (?chromeless=1).

    Code-less actions is a must - similar to what's already available for reporting services, but even more enhanced, due to the more dynamic characteristics of Power BI. There are some examples using the APIs, but this could be much easier.

    Also, I would like to be able to use a url returned by a measure. This would allow for dynamic links, not only to external websites but more importantly to other pages inside the current Power BI report, using query string parameters (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-url-filters). If we could do this it would allow all kinds of interesting options for analysis and navigation.
