  1. Increase User Default Options

    Please allow users to set up more customizable defaults. For example, dates (without timestamps) always default to include the weekday so I end up changing this every time I upload a new data set. Some other items include: date hierarchies (option to group by type [all January vs. January 2019 separate from Jan 2020]), default page/report upon opening, and default report settings/filters. Thanks.

  2. MULTIPLE DELIMITING FEATURE NOT AVAILABLE

    Like in Excel we have checkbox to delimit a column in one go with multiple delimiters like pipe,hifun etc.

    In Power Bi we can delimit using only one symbol at a time. Please enhance this.

  3. export data from one Power bi data set to other

    set an automatic data export to an excel file located in One Drive. this could help in using the data used by different power bi models as currently we cannot modify / create tables in models where we are using data source = Power Bi dataset or Power Bi dataflows.

  4. Improve M Documentation for Query Steps For Actions Not Clearly Captured

    Query Editor Does not currently capture specific columns for deletion/duplication removal. This can make for some unclear recreation of queries when looking through assumptions of former developers. Adding this feature capture would vastly improve the UI of QE.

  5. Identify which columns are used in visuals while in Edit Query

    After building visuals and dashboards I like to go and update my data model by removing unused columns. It would be very helpful to identify which columns are used in visuals. This could be a visual queue added to the columns list. This would allow me to understand which columns are not used.

  6. Flächenkartigramm

    Ich möchte hier Daten für die Bezirke Österreichs (Statistik Austria) einfügen, und die Anzeige ist nicht korrekt. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit die Namen der Bezirke richtig auf die Karte zuzuordnen. (Flächenkartiogramm)

  7. Duplicating table with with ability to chose selected columns and rows

  9. Edit Data Table From Relationship View window

    In the current relationship view window we can delete a data table from the model.

    It would be nice to right click on the data table and click edit query for the underlying table. This would immediately open up the query editor for data table changes.

    Today you have to switch views to the table view, and click edit table. or navigate to the edit queries button and click edit queries. Doing this opens the queries, but you still have to navigate to the table you want to change.

  10. hash

    Implement encryption function in Power Query SHA, MD5, etc. They are useful for speeding up delta data detection and for data merging.

  11. Skip bad rows at Load stage

    Recently we came with an issue related to wrong formats in data, at Load time if you have bad data you will have an exception and information wont load.
    We need a feature who allows you to skip bad data when you load the information and the option to see rejected records.

  12. New DAX function to make values STATIC

    Create a new DAX function to make values of a formula in measures or calculated columns static so when you apply a filter only the values that are not in the STATIC function change and the one in the function stay the same. For example: I have a table with the columns: City, InfectedPopulation and TotalPopulation and I want the sum of Totalpopulation to be static so the formula could be:
    %InfPopinTotPopulation= divide(InfectedPopulation, STATIC(sum(TotalPopulation))) so if in a filter I change the city the only value that change is the InfectedPopulation. I think that formula will help a lot in…

  14. Easy edit options in data section

    The simple edit options should be available with double click in the data section. For example the content of the data should be editable by double click and query editor makes a simple task lengthier. So, keep the query editor for more complex tasks and double click or right click>edit should be there for simple edits.

  16. Add Refresh Groups

    Many complex Power BI models are using a high number of different data sources.

    Some of these data sources must be refreshed on a regular basis frequently (daily or weekly), other however less frequently (monthly or in case of target numbers, yearly refresh is enough)

    It would be great to introduce refresh groups, and assign each source or entity to a certain refresh group. When initiating a refresh, users would be able to select which refresh group to execute.

  17. Disable "see records"

    There should be an option to disable "see records" for the graphics that support it. It is a huge issue when it comes to security. I know you can hide certain columns but in reports that should only be high level data, the see records item is really an issue.

  18. Enable Search box within the Advanced Editor.

    When in Advanced Editor in the Power Query Editor, if you pressed Ctrl-F a search box would open to help you find text within it.

  20. Transforming PostgreSQL Data

    It could be helpful if the DirectQuery with PostgreSQL supports data transformation without me having to Import all data.
