  1. 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.

  2. switch off wallpaper

    It would be great to be able to switch off wallpapers for mobile. Sometime a wallpaper that I am using for my main report does not translate well to the mobile canvas.

  7. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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?

  12. Improve slicer interaction on mobile

    when a slicer is selected have it pop out larger for easier selection of values. Once selections are made, it is minimized again.

  13. 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.

  14. Greater customisation for mobile views - Snap-to Grid and Font Size

    Currently mobile view offers very little in the way of customisation options. I would like to see the following:

    An option to change the size of the snap-to grid in the mobile view

    Option to change font sizes for tiles/visualisations in mobile view

  15. on a mobile, selecting a dropdown filter should open it directly

    on the mobile app, selecting a filter start by selecting the object, thuser has to select a second time to activate the content of the filter.
    like opening a dropdown list.
    this behavior should be the default behavior on the mobile app.
    99% of the users want to filter and not select the object.

  16. Selection Pane - Different view properties for Desktop/Phone Layout

    It would be great if the Phone layout did not inherit the "visible" property from the desktop layout.

    This would allow the designer to make visualisations specific to the phone layout, make this visible = false for the desktop layout but visible = true for the phone layout.

    Thus allowing for the design of phone specific visualisations.

    As it stands if I make a visualisation hidden in the desktop layout, while I can drag that visualisation into the Phone layout, it appears as hidden and not visisble.

  17. Titles should be visible on mobile platform (without need to tap the visual)

    Using the mobile solution is brilliant, however forcing users to click every single visual to get the title is a huge design flaw that should be fixed asap.

  18. Utilize Mobile App for External Users

    My external users are unable to see the shared reports and use the geolocation features within the mobile app. This is not as user-friendly as other mobile apps we utilize with our retailers which is unfortunate.

  19. SAML based SSO for SSRS 2016 Mobile reporting in Power BI app

    It would be beneficial in many scenarios to be able to configure SAML based SSO (Single Sign On) for SSRS Mobile reports in Power BI app, as there might be cases where the SSRS Mobile reports are hosted on premises that use SAML based SSO.

  20. Phone Number Links

    Just like you can add a mailto:address.com in a list and make it actionable, you should be able to do the same with a phone number, with something like a tel: or callto: prefix. The ability to tap a phone number and make a call would make the phone layout version of a report much more valuable.
