  4. 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…

  5. Auto resize columns to fill visual

    There should be an option to automatically resize table and matrix columns so their width would fill the entire visual space.

  6. 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.

  7. Flexible Drilldown

    Ability to create a not hierarchy drill down, that you can choose which dimension you want to detail the selected item. Eg. You have sales by state, so you can choose if you want to detail some state by product type or by store, or even choose if you want to see all your data by product type and so detail some type by state or store.

    Also, create some navigation map, to show what drilldowns was already been aplied.

  8. change default scroll bar position in column charts

    If you have a column chart with many time-points on the x-axis then a scroll bar appears on the bottom of the visual. Normally you order your x-axis in a way that the most recent dates appear to the right (at least in countries where you use to write from left to right). If you want to see the most recent dates, you always need to scroll to the right. (Alternatively, reorder, so that the most recent dates are on the left. However, this is counter-intuitive in many regions.) It would be great if you could configure the scroll bar…

  9. Add Body Part Human Model Visual

    Hello all. I work in Health Care, and when i work with some data it would be great to have some body parts visuals. For instance, when im working data about bruises, i would like to have like a human model and the location of the bruise with some data next to it.  Its just an idea, that some people in Health Care areas might have as well. If someone could create this it would be fantastic.

    Thank you for your time

    John O.

  10. Enable setting the background of search box in slicer

    When the theme is black, the user can not use the search function in slicer, because the text user input and background are both black.
    Please enable the setting for the background of search box in slicer.
    Thanks.

  13. Add ability to sort the words in Word Cloud visual

    Improve the Word Cloud visual by allowing the words to be sort in ascending or descending order. If you are searching for a particular word, it is very difficult to locate the word.

  15. Conditional formatting of data label in Card visual doesn't change with slicers.

    I created a Card visual with a conditional formatted data label (font is Green if positive and Red if Negative).

    However, when I use the slicers the value might change from positive to negative but the data label stays Green.

    The conditional formatting seems to not sync with the slicers like all the other components in the page.

    It would make the reporting of KPIs way easier if the conditional formatting would also change according to the slicers.

  16. Add tooltip option to slicers

    Adding tooltips to slicers would allow people to priotize or identify which filters to apply. Assume you were to share a sales report and it contains a slicer that allows you to filter data by store. The slicer works perfect if you have a predefined intention of checking specific stores (for whatever reason), but imagine I´m new in the staff; having a tooltip would help me identify the important stores as I am scrolling through the slicer. That tooltip could have a store ranking, amount of people employed at the store for example.

  17. Add sloped line to Scatter Plot

    Currently the capability exists to add constant lines to the plot (i.e. vertical or horizontal). Would like to see the capability for users to input an equation of a line to display a line other than a constant line. Need this to distinguish good/acceptable measurements on the scatter plot vs. bad/unacceptable measurements based upon different regions of the plot area/values of measurements.

  18. Chiclet Slicer: add ability to create individual color for each chiclet

    Currently we can change the background color for all chiclets in the group; however, we cannot set each individual chiclet in the group to a specific color. For example, if I want chiclet #1 to be red, #2 to be green, #3 to be blue, etc.

  19. Adjust the visual characteristics (font, size, color, location) for the displayed time value of the "Play" axis in a scatter plot

    When a play axis is added to a scatter plot, the time value for that dimension is displayed in large characters that cannot be styled or modified. Any bubbles around it are obscured and hard to read. If the appearance of that label could be modified, the visual would be much more usable.

  20. Pop Up Text box with Refresh data embeded

    Add an option for a pop up window at start / opening a report or dashboard. Like the pop-up you have in BI desktop when you open it except you can edit it and put the latest refresh update time and date in there. Would like to put in the pop up box that Data could lag from system by 24 hrs at the most and then have the latest refresh time and date.
