  1. Filters functionality in landscape mode for Mobile Power BI

    Right now, by design, we cannot use the filter functionality when we are in landscape mode in the mobile app, in order we can use the report/page filters

    Please add this functionality in a way we can use it as in vertical (portrait) mode

    Thanks

    I tested for iOS or Android and it doesn't work in both... this is by design? Or maybe I'm doing a wrong configuration of the PBIX file?

    Thanks for your comments,

    Mauro

      • power bi mobile report - top floating menu hiding content

        When you initially open a Power BI Report on a mobile phone, you can see the full screen of the report, including any slicers that sit at the top of the report. Once you scroll up or down, you start seeing a floating menu. The top floating menu has a back arrow and the report name and this then makes the top slicers or content unusable. Either the report needs to automatically slide down as the floating menu appears or there needs to be a way to hide or move this floating menu.

        • Multiselect option for mobile users

          There are at leat 3 important festures that fires with ctrl+click gesture: on slicers, on a single visual or, the most recent, on multiple visuals. The problem is that on mobile device we can not use ctrl+click gesture.
          I suggest to add a mobile app “multiple select” toggle option that switch between the single and multiple selection navigating a report.

          • Disable landscape view on mobile / make it the same as portrait but bigger

            I don't want my customers to see a massive, unoptimized report on their mobile phones when they tilt the screen to the side.

            Can you create a option to disable unoptimized view and replace it with portrait view but just bigger (helpful if you have table with more than 3 columns, because only 3 columns can squeeze on the tiny screen in portrait mode).

            There's a lot of annoying things about mobile app to correct but I think this one should be priority.

            • Report Tooltips for mobile devices

              Report Tooltips are awesome! It would be great if they were also available on mobile devices

              • Tablet reports selection displayed as Lists.

                Currently report selection is in Tiles on tablets and Lists in phone. We would like to have the option to display the Power BI Report Selections both in Tiles and Lists on tablet (iPad) devices.

                • phone view editing capabilities

                  1. Please remove the grid restriction in the phone layout.
                  2. Add the properties available in general tab of any visual to Phone view also.
                  3. Add option to have the phone view length in properties.
                  4. Branding capabilities
                  5. Back ground Image

                  These are good to start with and will keep update for more features.

                  • Get an APP on Power BI Mobile with no need to use Web service first

                    Today the user is required to log in and install an APP previously on Web service and only then the App become available on his Power BI Mobile.
                    Directors and high management in general only use a mobile device and it would be very useful if they could do everything from their mobile.

                    • wallpaper

                      It would be good to be able to switch wallpapers on and off for mobile, as wallpapers which work on the desktop are not always compatible with mobile. Thanks.

                      • Live report filtering of visible barcode

                        I'd like to see the app use barcodes to do an AR overlay of a filtered report, similar to what happens with the QR codes, but with some improvements.

                        In the mobile app (iphone now, android hopefully coming soon), you can use an AR overlay to replace a QR code you're looking at with a dashboard tile. This is nice, but requires us to set up a dashboard tile for each item we want to track, which isn't feasible for our inventory. You can set up a report to use barcode scanning to apply a filter which is also nice,…

                          • Mobile layout support for multiple report pages

                            I have created 3 report pages using Power BI Desktop but I have observed that out of 3 of my report pages, I can see only one report on Mobile Power BI. Even I cannot arrange visuals from page1 on page2 during mobile layout. So even if I have create multiple pages, I am able to show only one report in mobile to user which I think is creating a limitation.

                            • Landscape mode

                              When opening a report and flipping a phone to landscape, on Android, whilst the report is displayed, you cannot then return to the original view. You have to remain in landscape or close and reopen the app. Surely a bug?

                              • Power BI Mobile App Support for Windows IoT Core

                                Please add the device flag so I can install UWP Power BI app on Windows IoT Core. Right now it says "The package can only be installed on the following device families: Windows.Mobile Windows.Desktop Windows.Team Failure test: A Prerequisite for an install could not be satisfied. (0x80073cfd)" This would be very powerful to display Power BI dashboards! Thanks. :)

                                • Azure AD B2B guest users able to open Power BI Apps in the mobile app.

                                  It's great that we currently have Azure AD B2B available for Power BI. However it is not possible to give external guest users access to Power BI reports / dashboards in the mobile application.

                                  This needs to happen before we are able to really use AAD B2B, unfortunately for now we are still stuck creating local AAD users for the external guest users.

                                    • Show page in Mobile - Hide page in Desktop

                                      I would like to show pages in mobile layout (portrait) but hide them in desktop layout (landscape). Would be great if the option hide page would also be visible in the phone layout editing modus. This is needed to navigate through the report with a navigation bar with icons in the report itself but use the default navigation on mobile devices.

                                      • Wallpaper for Mobile View

                                        Would be great if the wallpaper option could be visible also for mobile devices, for both landscape and portrait view. Potentially an option to switch it on/off?

                                        • AR overlay when QR scanning in Android app

                                          The Android app currently scans QR codes, but it navigates into the report/tile on the device. The iPhone shows this instead as an AR overlay - bring this functionality to the Android too!
