  1. Display Tooltip over Grand Total

    Please allow the ability to have a tooltip appear over a grand total field in a matrix. It works fine for values and subtotal, but not for grand totals. A workaround for now is artificially creating a subtotal category, but this is cumbersome.

  3. ability to edit text position in card

    The position of the text in the card cannot be changed. If the text that we want to place in the card is long, then it will be on one line, and therefore we have to increase the length of the card itself. I would like to be able to distribute the text evenly throughout the card, and not just in length.

  4. Write Back capability

    It would be helpful if we can have an input box and once we click on submit button the values in the input box should be written to a Target database (it can be SQL server, Excel or any other system).

  6. 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.

  8. Ability to Rename "Total" Column in Table and Matrix Visuals

    We should be able to rename the column "TOTAL" and "SUBTOTAL" in the table and Matrix visuals.

    Because at times I don't want the column to just say "TOTAL" but "AVG TOTAL" - As this could be a misleading information for end users as there is a lot of difference when I say "TOTAL" and "AVG TOTAL" OR "TOTAL AVG".

  10. Synchronize drill up/down of visualizations

    I use the drill up/drill down hierarchy feature in almost all of my visualizations. However, when you have several visualizations, it becomes hassle to have to individually drill up/down on each one.

    For example, if I have 3 different line graphs plotted over time, if I drill from yearly to quarterly, I would want all 3 to toggle in unison.

  12. Visual which shows the Loading Time of the pbix document

    It will be nice to have a custom visual (similar to a scorecard) which will show the loading time of the pbix document (how long it takes for the document to load).

    This way we will be able to identify if there are any loading issues with the data.

  13. Move up values field on column matrix

    Matrix currently doesn't allow you to sort the columns based on designating values as being a priority above the column field names

    I want to put the values above the column header. In the first row (of the column headers) the measures I've created, then all the months for each measure. In this moment I have first the months and the measures for each month separately.

  15. Standard Hierarchy chart

    PowerBI should provide a standard version of hierarchy chart, which could be used as Tree \ Organization chart.
    Current custom visuals on market place are having lot of bugs and are unusable.

  16. Add Value Overlay to custom Shape Map

    It would be great if it was possible to display the values assigned to a location above the respective shape inside a custom shape map. For example, visualize the name and number of inhabitants on each country inside a map (the same information i get when I hover above it with the mouse).

  17. Objects - Top menu

    Allow the developer to hide the top menu of objects. That way we would have a cleaner presentation of the PBI reports especially in filters and in the KPI object

  18. Customize features and formatting of Show Data pane

    It would be beneficial to have the ability to match formatting or customize the formatting to a Custom visual theme whenever an end user selects "Show Data". Right now I have to avoid using dark colors for the background color as the default pane of "Show Data" is a white background.

  19. Group shapes / buttons with tables on working canvas

    While working on the canvas, there is no option to group buttons / shapes with table. While moving the table left or right, the button which I place on one particular column stays static and the alignment gets disturbed. Please add the functionality to group items / elements together.
