  1. Hyperlink in Visuals

    You should be able to insert a hyperlink field into a visual so when a user selects on the visual, it can take them to the desired page.

    • Compare two Queries - Columns

      I would like to have the ability to do a "compare tables" or "compare queries" option.

      I understand that there are visuals/queries I can build to compare the DATA within two separate queries but I want to compare the two queries. I want to know how many columns are in TableA versus how many are in TableB and which column names are different from each other. When I have two tables with 150 columns (give or take) and they are allegedly a copy of each other I want to be able to confirm that all 150 in columns in TableA…

        • Power BI Service recognize local time zone for TODAY() and NOW() time intelligence functions

          As of now, the reports that I create on desktop utilize a lot of time intelligence functions and relative date filters. This is completely fine so long as I view the report on the desktop. Once I publish the report up to the service and then utilize those visuals in dashboards I run into this issue. All of my time intelligence functions (TODAY & NOW) and relative date filters convert to UTC.

          This issue causes my data to roll over to the next day 5 hours early which affects all of my subscriptions.

          It would be absolutely fantastic if Power…

          • Allow same column functionality as pivot tables in Excel

            Currently in pbi, if you add more than 1 measure to the Values field of a matrix, and then add a 3rd measure to the column field (e.g. a year, or month), the results alternate the 2 measures back and forth, which is confusing to read (for instance, harder to see trends over time); my suggested improvement is to allow a user to bring the column measure 'down below' the value measures so that you can group the values for each measure together in separate sections of the matrix... this is a drag-and-drop feature that has been available in Excel…

            • Conditional Formatting Different Hierarchies of a Matrix

              Example problem:

              This situation can be applied to many other scenarios.

              I have a matrix with Hours by Department and then by the individual employee (one level lower). I'd like to conditionally format the column "Hours" to be red when the employee works over 40 hours. I can do this, but then when the hierarchy is collapsed, it shows the TOTAL department's hours are formatted red, since the department total is over 40 hours.

              The ability to format different hierarchies would be nice.

                        • Sync slicer to work with custom slicers (i.e. HierarchySlicer, Smart Filter)

                          Great feature of synching slicer on selected pages as of Feb'18 release.

                          Unfortunately it seems not to be working with custom slicers which are very useful, like HierarchySlicer or Smart Filter. This fact limits our choice in slicers to use in the reports.

                          Please, extend this feature to all slicers to give more flexibility to the users.

                              • Slicer Dropdown retraction options

                                Greetings!

                                It would be great if the dropdown would automatically retract upon selection (especially when single selection is enabled).

                                It is not intuitive for the user to click somewhere else to get the slicer to retract.

                                Also, the dropdown might partially or fully cover an adjoining object when open (especially when they are "stacked" like in this example: https://powerpivotpro.com/2018/02/using-selectedvalues-capture-power-bi-slicer-selections/)

                                Having an "Automatically Retract" toggle under "Selection Controls" would be a great start!

                                If this isn't possible, what about having "Ok" and "Cancel" buttons on the dropdown like in Excel filters?

                                Thanks! Power BI is the best! I love you!

                                  • Ability to disable Drill Through option on visual

                                    Power BI automatically enables drill through option based on fields and filters used across different tabs and visuals. Many times, drill through option shows up even though it was not intended for creating confusion for production users. There should be some kind of control for developer to turn off drill through on visual.

                                    • Data label for Trend Line

                                      Adding the ability to display a data label for the Trend Line analytics feature, similar to other Analytics features like Min Line, Max Line, etc.

                                      'Name' text would be a good start, to identify the trend line apart from other Analytics lines. Adding 'Value' / 'Name and Value' text, displaying R-squared would also be of value.

                                          Sometimes the designer knows exactly how something should be sorted - but to make sorting work with many visuals, we have to create new methods and incorporate the sort order into our DAX.
