How can we improve Power BI?

When will the KPI Red/Yellow/Green Indicators be available on PowerBI Desktop?

KPI Red/Yellow/Green Indicators were available in Power Pivot. With the new Power BI Desktop this feature is not available anymore. If you import from PP to the Desktop it converts the RYG Indicator Dots to a number. Will the Red/Yellow/Green Indicators be added back to PowerBI Desktop? If so When?

        No built-in feature for colored KPI indicators. Advance Card unichar arrows don't display properly with Internet Explorer. It's almost disrespectful that this feature isn't added by default.

        As many others have mentioned, date comparison conditional formatting is a huge value, with numerous applications. Please add.

        Please add this functionality. I was unhappily surprised to find it is not available in Power BI yet.

        We absolutely need to highlight cells based on it´s textual content for Management presentations. It´s hard to tell a Manager that we have a great new tool, but unfortunately we are not able to define conditional formatting for the cells.

        I think it is unacceptable thinking to have always had this kind of feature in the past on the preeceding tools and not having here now! Please, add this funtionality!

        yes, I agree for this feature. KPI indicators are very much used in analysis.

        Please provide this feature, my reports lack the necessary highlights on the important information.

        YES IT IS VERY IMPORTANT, i wonder why microsoft didn't implement this or this team lack of skills ?

        Although slightly cumbersome, one solution is to simply apply conditional formatting to an ASCII dot symbol.

        This would be a great feature that thousand of people and organization could make use of.

        This is a seemingly small but actually very important feature. Senior management are used to seeing these indicators on all of their reports (not least because Excel produces these very nicely). As other users have mentioned, improved conditional formatting based on text values would allow us to achieve the same result.
