  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • add Power BI apps from mobile device

          From the mobile app (iOS and Android) we cannot add published apps to our apps. Users currently have to log into the web power BI service to add an app. Please allow users on mobile to add Power BI apps that have been made available to them.

          • hiding report object in desktop layout, hides it also in phone layout

            If I hide an object in the desktop layout, it automatically gets hidden from the phone layout even though it was already on the grid

            Please, do not hide them as if it were one. There are some buttons (actions, go to bookmarks) that I want to include in the mobile view that I cannot show on the desktop view but If I hide it from the latter I cannot show it on the mobile.

              • Change size of phone view in reports

                I'd like to (manually) change the size of the phone view in PBI reports. Especially the length of the phone view is too restrictive. When you have many visuals of a report tab, it's very difficult to place them properly on the current phone view.
                Thanks in advance.

                  • PowerBI mobile Application authenticate via ADFS and WAP to PowerBI Report Server

                    Hi Guys,
                    We are using ADFS+WAP+PBI Report Server, but its not working for Mobile Application. I can authenticate to Mobile Application, but can not open any report.

                    Thanks,
                    Oleksiy

                    • URL links in Android Apps

                      URL Links work in desktop server, and in Apple iOS apps, but do not work in Android Apps, meaning we cannot role out a product with URL links in as customers will have a different user experience - i.e. the report wont work!! Please can the Android app be upgraded to support URL links?

                      • Power BI Mobile app for Windows 10 should support Report Server

                        It's very strange why Power BI Mobile app for Windows doesn't support Power BI Report Server. Android and iOS apps have this feature.
                        So now Windows phone and tablet users can't access PBIRS via the app, which is the most convenient way of using the reports.

                        Please consider adding this in the nearest future.

                        • Enable different language choice in the mobile app (android)

                          add the option to change language in the mobile app (android) as well. I am sitting in Denmark and my phone is in danish. However, I receive dashboards from colleagues in the US and the layout gets messed up as it uses danish abbreviations instead of english.

                          • Improved usability of buttons in Power Bi Mobile

                            Desktop Layout (Works fine): A Single click on a button in powerbi takes you to the desired page

                            Mobile Layout (Errors): A single click doesn't work on the mobile layout. You need to select & click it for it to open the linked bookmark. Double clicking redirects it to the option of expanding it in a focus mode.

                            For the ease of use for the user, it would be better to have a single click on the button.

                            • Make Power BI Apps shared with external users available through Power BI Mobile app

                              Currently you cannot open a Power BI app shared with external users in Power BI Mobile. You can open it though if you sign in through the web browser, however the mobile dashboard user experience on the web browser isn't nearly as good as in the mobile app.
                              Is there any authorization reason preventing the app to be shown in the mobile app but allowing the same user account to see it in the browser?

                                      • Sharing from mobile.. Make it clear its disabled

                                        I was thinking we should be able to share a dashboard or report from the mobile app. Turns out our tenant may have disabled it but there's no way to know this. I think a notification world be great otherwise I just think the app doesn't do something basic.

                                        • Use separate background image on mobile view

                                          It should be able to use a separate picture or disable background image on mobileview versus desktop view. By now, the background image feature is pretty useless in mobile view. And therefore I can't use it in desktop view.
