  1. Disable Export data function in Power BI Embeded

    Currently Export data can be disabled from the service but not from Power BI Embeded. We want to keep our data from being able to exported by others and see Power BI Embeded as our prefered roll out solution but the lack of ability to turn off the export feature means that we are not currently able to use Embeded for this purpose. Ideally we need a way to control export data at a visual level but at minimum control at a dashboard / report level. This is a high priority feature for us to be able to complet our…

  2. Default Slicer Values via Query Parameter

    Whilst I am on this, it would be nice if this change…

  3. Analyze in Excel Standard Pivot Table Aggregations

    The Analyze in Excel feature is an excellent addition to Power BI. For an enhancement, I recommend adding the ability to utilize Excel's standard pivot table functionality of adding implicit measures for numeric fields from source data. This functionality would be similar to the process for creating pivot tables with Power Pivot where custom measures can be used with standard Excel measures in the same pivot table.

    The requirement to create custom measures for simple aggregations (i.e. sum of xx numeric field) removes one of the largest advantages of creating summarizations in Excel. It is also difficult for report developers…
