  1. Allow export to Excel from all versions of Power BI

    The limitation of having one option to export data frustrates our desktop customer base as we look to add Power BI to our reporting toolkit. Please include the export option for Excel that exists within the Pro and Premium versions. The added steps needed to convert the csv file to an xlsx becomes a training issue and is time consuming for our end users.

  2. Give the possibility to switch column positions in the Data tab

    Even though the Data tab isn't made to visualize data, it's sometimes very useful to organize the columns in a specific order. Sometimes, I create columns after others, but would like to see them before. This is possible to do but very complicated - would there be a way to create a quick functionality to switch column positions easily ?

    Thanks

  4. We need the option to rearrange or add/remove columns, rows, and values with the read access

    Now I have to create dozen of copies for each set of rows/columns just to be sure that my data is available for all users with all dimensions they need.
    It will be much easier if they will be able to drag and drop every field they need and create a matrix that suits them best.

  6. New Model view suggestions

    Minor suggestions for the new modeling view:

    - Left-clicking on the relationship should lock it on as active (Just hovering over the relationship to get the line turn yellow and the involved fields is sometimes is not enough, especially if you have to mouse away from the relationship to scroll down the field list to see the highlighted field).

    - Hovering over a particular field should turn the relationship yellow and highlight relationships and related fields in other tables in both the diagram view and the fields list pane

    - Relationships should be called out in the "Properties" pane

    -Shift+Click…

  8. Merge Join type: Full Anti

    A reason I use PowerBI is to keep a running tab of differences between two systems that haven't quite rated the need for a full-automatic integration, but should be kept similar. It's enough for now (or maybe for always) to have a person responsible for keeping them similar and to use a report as supplement.

    Having a merge type of "Full Anti" would save a few steps in query prep. For now, I need to create multiple queries, Merge them with Left Anti and Right Anti to new queries, add a column called "source", then append those resulting queries to…

  9. Search Option on date type data segmentations

    It will be interesting to search on a data segmentation with a date type field. Now you can just search if the field is text type.

  11. Unit testing on data refresh

    For each dataset, allow the user to define a set of simple 'if/then' tests to be passed before the new data is fully loaded. This is to impose a certain level of control over what is displayed in a report.

    For example, I define Test1 on my_dataset such that
    IF length(my_dataset_REFRESHED) < length(my_dataset_OLD): quit the refresh and send me an email/notification.

  12. Dax formatting Button in coding place ,

    Actually Dax language is not case sensitive, so the learning people cant keep spaces, commas, etc in proper format. In order to keep the proper format of Dax it will be good if a button is placed within the coding place to format the code, this will help the beginners.
    After completion of the coding, select the code and on pressing the button it should get formatted. Currently, people are using the diffrent application and online for that use. The probem with this is that it is time consuming . I think this is most helpful for beginners. Thank you

  18. Editing Datasets in Power BI Desktop

    We are not able to data model any dataset that is already published to Power BI service. I cannot sort by another column as I can do it if I have a native file import but not for Power BI dataset. We should be able to edit the datasets.

  19. Resizing of "quick measures window"

    When using the quick measures window on a small screen (i.e. laptop), there's no way to resize the window to see the buttons at the end, so the user has to blindly tab through every selection and try if hitting it will finish and apply the quick measure.
