  2. I want to turn off tooltips in mobile application.

    ToolTips can be turned off when viewed in a Power BI service.
    However, in Mobile Application, even if the tooltip is turned off, the tooltip is displayed.
    I want a setting that can hide tooltips because of poor visibility.

  5. Selection pane & overlay when designing mobile

    Allow visuals to overlay in the mobile designer and have a separate selection pane for the mobile view. Our report users leverage the mobile view heavily and having this additional capability would go a long way in improving the mobile look/feel
    (as would not being forced to snap-to-grid in mobile view).

    Right now for more complex interactions as well as background images on mobile, we're forcing the designer to overlay visuals by doing the following:
    1. In the mobile view, pin an image with the desired background
    2. In the desktop view, hide the image in the selection pane
    3.…

  6. About the behavior of tooltip options on mobile applications

    When the report tooltip is turned off, the tooltip is displayed when the report is viewed from the mobile application.
    Works properly if you do not refer from the mobile application (tooltips are not displayed).

  7. 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.

  9. Hidden and locked Report filters should not be adjustable in the app

    Hidden filters and locked filters are exposed and adjustable when accessing the report from the app. They should stay hidden and locked.

  10. Option to exclude tabs in mobile view

    Provide an option to hide tabs in multi-tab reports as some do not lend themselves to a mobile platform, or the data may not be advisable in a mobile view (e.g. confidentiality).

  11. iPhone/iPad - click on a tile in the dashboard should immediately lead to the report

    iPhone/iPad - click on a tile in the dashboard should immediately lead to the report
    When you have published apps to the iPad/iPhone and you enter a dashboard you have to long press the tile before it leads to the report (or click the "..."). Why? You should just click the tile and it should immediately lead you to the report (a long press could instead be used to enlarge the tile (which would be used very seldom).

  12. Make PowerBI App use Kerberos

    At this moment, reports published to Reportserver need a seperate data source connection account that uses NTLM because the mobile PowerBI app does not support constrained delegation (Kerberos).
    If the app could make use of Kerberos, constrained delegation would be possible and we can use the same reports on browsers as on the mobile App.

  13. Improve dpi scaling?

    Improve dpi scaling? Items too small on screen, can't read it on a 13inch laptop. Zooming in to read pushes content off screen.

    Nowadays every single Smartphone have ALOT of applications, I myself something didnt aware of what's installed. Users today are relay on notification to notify them something news/info.

  15. Auto adjust visuals on mobile

    In the desktop mode when creating reports in page mode and then go mobile, all graphics, tables and etc are the same size as the desktop version. this causes for example a large table to be displayed correctly on the mobile. the correct thing would be for us to mount the mobile layout and the graphics, tables and other information if they fit the display screen of the device, preventing the information from being cut off in the view.

  20. Ability to view Mobile view on Power BI Mobile app in desktop or browser

    I would like for my users to access the mobile optimized view i built right from their desktop so they can use the report like a widget and put it on the side of their screen.
    When they want to view all details, they could then switch back to desktop view.
    When using Power BI Mobile app today on my Windows 10 PC, i cannot see the mobile view i created. It should switch automatically when resizing the window as it does on tablets.
