Rich text & HTML support in data fields
SSAS supports rich-text memo style fields. When you connect these to Power BI visuals, they should show with all the correct formatting etc.
Support for HTML-formatted text would be great too!

How about adding support for CommonMark and Githum flavored markup. We need the same support on paginated reports.
We want to expose our data dictionary via power bi and this has tables and other html elements in the definitions, examples etc. This is the thing that is stopping us from moving!
Rich text format please!!
Necesitamos una función o interprete RTF Por favor!!!!!!!!
Data that has been formatted in Project Online, like a bulleted list, show up as a long string of text in PowerBI. My request is that PowerBI shows what is stored in the database, just like what is seen in the application.

need support from excel to power bi for better visual intepretation
I could benefit highly from a visual that could show HTML!
please Ms Microsoft
As a new and basic user of Power BI - I find this to be a must have.
This is a must. How can you work with data if you cannot format it to be eye friendly all the time. Importing Excel table with formatted text (bold, italics, colors of fonts and cells, variation in font size, text wrap, etc., to name the top important stuff) to have it disappear by such smart app that is designed to give graphic effects is... shocking. I'm hoping for it to be added soon
Yes, this would be very useful!
