  1. 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.

  2. Increase the Number of Rows in the Phone Layout

    Add the option to increase the number of rows in the phone layout and extend the size ( height) of the page in the mobile view, so we can add more visualizations.

  3. Click to Call or Email on Phone Directly from Visuals

    For mobile sales dashboards, the ability to click on phone number or email in a table visual to call or email from the app would be crucial.

  4. Enhanced phone capability

    Power BI would be more useful if I could scroll left/right on phone reports. The width on phone reports is too restrictive.

  5. Phone View for

    Phone View for Tablets / Desktops running Windows 10 Power BI App
    The "Phone View" mode should also be available for the Power BI App on Windows 10 Tablets or Desktops. This would especially help when projecting reports to large touchscreen monitors in an educational setting (as you have a better touch interaction with the phone view layout than with the normal report layout).

  6. Allow Number formatting for Alerts

    Number formatting doesn't come through to alerts making large numbers difficult to read. Can this be developed?

  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. Stacked visual elements for mobile phone view

    Phone portrait layouts are created from visual elements created for the desktop report page view. However, elements can be stacked on the desktop and the z-order can be adjusted. Apparently elements cannot be stacked when creating the phone portrait view. Some might consider this a bug since these composites are a visual on the report page that cannot be used on the phone.

    We often use a graphic object to draw a frame around other objects and give a title to the group. We are searching for an alternative for the phone view.

    Microsoft, please consider this important enhancement…

  12. Viewable map tooltips on phone

    The maps are currently pretty useless on a mobile phone. It would be nice to be able to view the location-specific details and/or tooltips when you touch a given location. Right now location specific functionality within the map context is very much lacking on a mobile phone

  13. 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.

  16. Fix bug please: Phone layout needs excessive clicking

    When using a report in phone layout every visual needs at least one extra click to get the desired result.
    The whole phone experience is a disaster if selections are required or scrolling inside a visual is required. (Both on iPhone and Android)
