How can we improve Power BI?

Menu bar covers report data, can’t hide

Menu bar covers report page top and can’t hide it. There should be a button to hide menu on the menu instead of just based on scrolling. Please help- I can’t use the filters at the top of my report page.

    What you need to do is 1) add an option to enable and disable this bar in full-screen, app-viewing mode, and 2) if it's present, don't just overlay it on the report, but resize the report so the menu isn't covering the top slice of the report.

    In its current implementation, you've essentially made the top slice of real estate in reports unusable, which just so happens to be where my org has placed report page titles in ALL of our reports (go figure).

    Furthermore, you have inconsistent behavior: if I'm viewing a dashboard full-screen, and click on a tile that takes me to a report, the top menu bar appears. However, if I'm viewing the dashboard NOT in full-screen, click on a tile that takes me to a report, and THEN go full-screen, the top menu bar does NOT appear.

    Fully agree !! In order to have wider space, menu bar have to be thinner and floating !

    Totally agree. It also makes taking annotation including top part of report impossible!

    This menu can be a floating menu icon or can be merged with bottom navigation bar.

    Agree. Dashboards on mobile in portrait are potentially very nice, only the menu bars are spoiling it a bit...
