  3. 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

  5. Apply Filters to Python /R Visual

    Its great Power BI supports Python & R integration but visuals using Python & R gets created as image and Power BI filters are not applicable to it. Would be great if this functionality is available.

  6. Show pulse chart events without selecting them

    Pulse chart is a nearly perfect visual for explaining changes of YTD EBIT with major events.
    Unfortunately, as top management is not using Power BI, we need the ability to bring the pulse chart with event discriptions to a PDF. This would be possible, if there is an option which allows to show every event without selecting/clicking it.
    Moreover this would offer the possibility to see more than one event discription at a time, very usefull if you have a complex business to think about!

  7. Condensed line graphs with categorical data in the x-axis

    I would like to be able to have a line graph with categorical data in the x-axis that does not automatically add scroll bars instead of condensing the graph to fit the visual.

  8. Slicer to Omit records from a large data set. (Cant scroll through the records)

    Currently the only way you can use a slicer to omit records is to Set Select All to On. then save the report with this selected so all the values are selected. Then the user can select a record to omit it from the data set.
    This however only works if the record set is fairly small so you can scroll through them. Not when there are thousands of entries. In this case you need to allow the user to input the code to find it THEN select it. Currently you cant do this.

    It would be really useful to…

  10. In Live connection - Export Matrix visual into an Excel pivot table that is live connected to the model

    When using Live Connection and Exporting Matrix visual into Excel, the excel sheet should open with a pivot table that is already connected to the model, with the same configuration that the matrix had.
    from that point the user can continue using the excel pivot, analyzing and exploring the model from the excel itslef.

  11. donut chart

    Improve original donut chart so it could fill from 0 to 100% for just one category + add ability to change the colour of chart depending on conditions like with other visuals.

    For example: If I want to show just one metric it will be half way around for 50% value.

  12. 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.

  13. Reverse scale in scatter plots

    Useful would be to have scatter plot with option to reverse scales as sometimes you prefer to show higher values in the bottom of y axis while lower in top (as maybe lower value is better)

  14. Ability to add a secondary y-axis to a chart (all line chart – not line and stacked or line and clustered)

    Right now all the charts supports only one y axis. There should be a support for secondary axis as well. You added a second y-axis if you use a bar-line chart, but many of us want a line-line chart (showing build-up and burn-down in a "X" graph)

  15. Make table visual like AG Grid in Javascript

  16. Add option to drill down two same type visuals at same time

  17. Calculo diferente para subtotais e totais

    em inúmeras situações é necessário realizar cálculos diferentes para as linhas de totais e subtotais, porém, nos visuais de tabela e matriz tabela, hoje isso não é possível, esta seria uma modificação muito bem vinda ao power bi, esta funcionalidade existe em outras ferramentas e extremamente útil, além de simplificar a criação de visualizações.

  18. Likert data as Gantt percents

    Likert data type now tends to be displayed in graphs with Gantt percentages. Need this option in Power BI. It is especially strange that we don't have it, as Microsoft Forms displays results in such graphs... Come on MS, it seems you need some experience exchange between departments...

    The question, where the answer says it is impossible to do.

  19. Optional - Highlight or Filter - Visual

    Colocar opção de realçar ou filtrar o visual de forma padrão para todos. Ate mesmo alterar todos os visual de uma vez só!

    Tambem deixar uma opção em configurações para definir qual vai ser o padrão quando crio um visual.

    Hoje já é fixo a opção filtrar. Se desse para inverter, seria ótimo! Uso mais o filtrar do que o realçar.
