  1. New functionality "Sync Slicers" in Custom Visual visualizations.

    I tested the "Sync Slicers" new functionality and it's a very good option but it doesn't work with a Custom Visual, for example, Chiclet Slicer. Chiclet Slicer is a Custom Visual visualizations widely used and it will be very important that this new functionality work in it well.

    • Totals in stacked column charts

      During several presentations I get questions regarding the total of stacked columns. In the current situation you can select to label all the parts of the stacked column but no grand total. I would like to see the option to add a label to the Visuals which shows the total of the stacked column (this counts for values only). Ideally this total would deviate together with the drilldowns you select, so it stays interactive whatever filters you select or subsets you create on your dashboard.

      • Interactive Python Visuals

        I know Python Visuals have just been supported for Power BI, but lets get the ball rolling on this one.

        Please support Visual Interactions with Python Visuals.

        • Rename Totals

          Please allow users to rename totals in the Table and Matrix visual. This is a very important feature to be able to label what the total means for a specific report (e.g. Month Actual adding up to YTD Actual) rather than simply "total". For the time being the only solution is to put a text box over to which goes away in focus mode, etc. Thank you!

          • Improve Select All Slicer Performance

            There are instances where we need to filter down the data set on one variable, like contract number (say it's an enterprise contract for a number of locations with different customer numbers) because we want to use this filter to find all the related customer numbers. With the limited customer number list, I want to be able to "Select All" customer numbers now showing and then unselect the contract number because I want to see all business for these customer numbers, whether each item was sold under contract or not. However, when I click to erase the contract number, the…

            • Export Power BI visual matrix to Excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

              I want a way to export a visual matrix (already assembled in my Power BI report) and take it to excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

              • Axis inversion

                There should be a field button for inverting the axis. For example, instead of the Y-axis moving upwards from 0 to 100 it should be able to flip and start at 100 and move upwards to 0.

                • Export Theme as JSON file

                  Once you have created a report, and taken many hours to manually formatted colors, fonts, grids, charts, cards and other visuals, allow for those settings to be exported as a theme (JSON file) that you can use use it in other reports.

                  • Latest date as anchor date for relative date slicer

                    Avatar, Alaeddin

                    I hope that you add the ability to add a measure as the anchor date for relative date slicer, it'd be really useful if you wanna set the anchor date as the latest date of your data which can change overtime.

                    • Vertical Column Headers in Matrix

                      Make possible to rotate the column header so that they appear vertical. It's very usefull for the case that I have a number of columns and the names of each column is a rather long text, hence it makes the matrix's width large even though the actual cells just hold a number. Format-wise, it can be much more pleasant if the column heades could have appeared vertically to save space rather than the default horizontal.

                            • Enable more data label options instead of % on 100% Stacked Column Chart

                              100% Stacked Column Chart only shows data labels in %. Please, enable more options (None, Millions, billions, thousands, etc.) for data labels.

                              Sometimes we want to compare the amounts on each column, but not compare each column using the 100% Stacked Column Chart. It limits us by allowing only data labels in percentage.

                              • Ability to rename the label for total on column and rows.

                                It would be helpful if we can edit the labels for 'Total' on a matrix i.e. I have 3 regions across the globe and wish to edit the total to show as 'Global'.

                                • Display time in HH: mm: ss format in columns and bars charts

                                  We need to display time fields in the format (HH: mm: ss), in the stacked column chart / stacked bar chart.

                                  Explanation:

                                  We now convert the time to decimal to generate the graph.
                                  Example:

                                  01:30:00 (hh: mm: ss) = 1.5 (decimal)

                                  In bar charts, the value property (FIELDS - VALUE option) will be 1.5

                                  By activating the display data property (FORMAT - DATA-LABELS), the displayed value is 1.5.

                                  Instead we need to display the data 01:30:00 (hh: mm: ss) DATA-LABELS.

                                  Suggestion:

                                  Possibility to indicate which field to display in DATA-LABELS.

                                  Hour_decimal (VALUE) = Hour (HH: mm: ss) display this field

                                  • Coloring the Matrix visual based on rows or columns

                                    In the current ‘Matrix’ visual, the conditional formatting happens for all the values in the standard way and we can set conditional formatting based on particular row or column value. Would love to see conditional formatting based on row or col. Something like.....if row =‘risk’ and value >100, then color the cell as red.

                                    • Select All option for chiclet slicer

                                      Chiclet slicers are great and it's nice that the 'clear selection' option has been added. However, it would be great if there was a 'select all' option, or if the 'clear selection' button toggled all to none and back.

                                      • Conditional Formatting for Total and Subtotals in Matrices

                                        The recent addition of conditional formatting for values is wonderful. However, it would be great to have the ability format subtotals and totals, as the variation on those fields are often even more important to draw attention to.

                                        • Conditional Color formatting for bar charts with multiple metrics.

                                          Conditional Color formatting for bar charts with multiple metrics:
                                          Example - In a simple bar chart, If I select multiple metrics in my values field it should give me an option set the bar colors (conditional formatting) based on a minimum and maximum value. If they are above 100 then all the bars should be green or if they are below 90 then red and anything between 90-100 should be white etc.
