  1. 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.

  3. 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".

  5. Roadmap with dependencies

    Have a build-in PowerBI feature to present Gantt chart with dependencies between tasks and ability to drill down in the roadmap (group of task depending on topic for example)

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Sync Slicers in Dashboard

    When working in a Report you can sync slicers from one page with the others. But on a Dashbaord this is not working. Sync slicers shoud work on the Pin live Page you display in your dashboard. This Dashbaord sync slicer will work only on the Dashboard the Report had the slicers sync to. If we have 2 Reports for one Dashboard sync slicers will not work.
    Hope that makes sens

  17. Create a custom KPI container visual

    Users require more flexibility when creating KPI's. Instead of using existing KPI visuals, users can create their own KPI by dragging a container visual onto their page.Thereafter users can then drag cards, textbox's and any other visuals they require to create their KPI into this container. this KPI container visual can be dragged any where on the page and it can also be dragged into a mobile layout.

    Currently when i create a custom KPI i use a rectangle shape and drag my cards, textbox's and visuals into it. This KPI however cannot be moved across the page as one…

  18. Preview color in visualization when mouseover color options in the format tab

    When you're customizing an existing visualization through the format tab and changing the color of anything through the color dropdown, the data visualization should have a preview of whatever color your mouse is over.

  19. Adjustment & cuting a board in several part when there is a scroll before printing/PDF

    It's possible to caliber a report for a size in 1 page. But there is a problem of adjustment when the page includes a board with a scroll/lift.

    If the scroll contains 100 lines and we can show only 50 lines , it's necessary to generate manually 2 prints . The first wave for first 50 lines and a second wave for the last 50 lines.

    My idea consists to add a property to break automaticaly before printing. Before a printing with this it's possible to own a result of 1 board in 2 or more pages.

  20. Should be possible to use a country flag instead of colors in the visual graphics.

    Sometimes using the flags of the countries is a great way to represent in some graphs...it can replace the legends.
