    PLEASE enable this: It should be VERY easy to use the tooltip page functionality as a value output in a matrix. This should require very little code.

    This has to happen, and soon. Without this, PowerBI is still hamstrung as far as the ability to dynamically present filtered data.

    One of the key missing features as far as I'm concerned. Until this is a standard feature (I know the infographic custom visual can go some way towards doing this), I'll stick with Tableau

    Very important. we are working on replatforming microstrategy dashboards and Microstrategy's availability of trellies and dynamic axis is makes this very complicated

    Power BI needs a robust trellis / small multiples chart functionality as soon as possible. Anyone who has spent a great number of hours making visualizations would eventually conclude that this functionality is an absolute must have.

    I would extend this idea to more than just line visualizations; I have a valid business scenario for having small multiple pie charts, which I can easily accomplish in Tableau, with very minimal effort.

    This the biggest weakness of power bi that make me use microstrategy desktop

  • Terry commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Absolutely agree!!! Power BI has to have this capability.

  • John-Paul Thompson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    An external consultancy I'm working with produced some sample output in Tableau. The dynamic trellis function is really well implemented and scales nicely to the page and looks really good. Onlt having Tableau reader, I tried to replicate in both Power BI and QlikView. Qlikview has this capability, but it is impossible to get make a usable visualistaion. Power Bi appears not to have this capability at all. This is a something that is urgently needed to make Power BI a real contender.

    MS drives me nuts with stuff like this. “All the functionality you are use to plus much much more! However, you can’t (insert something important I use all the time)”

    It’s driving me insane

    Please look at implementing this. Killer feature that Tableau has over PBI

  • Steven Kienle commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I'm having to drop into R to produce some of the visualizations my customers want, but then I lose drill down, which is a pretty big lost. Power BI really needs this.

  • Roland commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    absolute must have, if you want to do serious information design, I would love to see this sooner than later!

  • Alberto commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    If you are serious after going after Tableau, this is a must-have. I hope this is a top priority in your roadmap. Please...
