Allow Custom Datasource/Report/Dashboard Templates
Allow IT professionals to publish custom templates for reports (IE a well production report with certain applicable charts). It should be able to show up in Get Data and operate like the existing SQL Audit/Google Analytics/Other precaned report.)
I build a bunch of customs systems where i have to use restier to expose odata for the system.
Somehow i don`t want to link PowerBI directly to the database because of application security which is often in code. Please allow us to build custom sources.
Enhance Restier to make it the defacto tool for building PowerBI custom sources.
Different databases with the same architecture should be exchangeable, so you can easily hand out complete reports and dashboard to customers using your database architecture.
First I thought the "Export"-function could help with that, but it doesn't.
Power BI can be a powerful collaboration Tool, and allowing for out-of-the-box corporate branding will be a big benefit for new users.
Can someone from MS comment on a release schedule for this feature?

We are currently creating multiple reports for our company and this feature would save us a ton of time. For now our work around is to duplicate a page, if using the information in the same report, or creating a copy of a pbix file that works as a template file and building our reports/dashboards from there.
I agree. We are creating multiple dashboards for multiple customers, but the data comes from a specific source in individual excel workbooks monthly. If I could create a template, including measures and calculated columns and simply point it to the most recent data set, it would save days worth of time and help me sell this product to our national affiliates.

Have the option to place a company logo and address on a report and save that as a template for use with future reports
