  1. New Calendar in Power BI to use the same day a year ago

    I would love to see a calendar that we can use to select the same day a year ago. In retail, we track sales daily and the real comparison to the prior year is the same day a year ago and not the same date a year ago. This would also have the same week a year ago and roll up to the full year. It's really a comparable day calendar which would be fantastic! Thank you

  2. Enable measure to be put in a slicer

    Enable measure in a slicer, add a second 'axis' field in which a category can be dragged so that the slicer calculates all the 'measure values' for each of the category. These values will then be used as a spread for the slicer.

  5. percentage of total

    have a measure to get the percentage of total for a category based on slicer/filter.
    For Eg, if I have a table as below:
    A 10
    B 20
    C 30
    I need to get the percent of total where I will choose the numerator (A/B/C) from a slicer

  6. GCD for multiple values

    Current DAX function for GCD supports only two inputs or values. But, if we want to calculate the GCD for the entire column or a set of values more that 2 numbers, It is time consuming and not possible at times. So, DAX GCD could be expanded to multiple values support.

  7. Cumulative total return

    Cummulative returns in quick measures. Be able to compound returns (1+r1)*(1+r2)*...(1+rN)-1. The most similar option I see is running total which is not quite the same,

  10. Improve date and time hierarchy

    We need the hierarchy to be able to determine time from a date and time table and allow for visuals to drill up and down to day of week, week of year, hour of day, minutes ect. Also to allow for a filter to be added to this field where the last nth hours shoudl be displayed based on hour of day and not necessarily total count or sum for the hours. Many users might not be familiar with measures or DAX, so making this existing functionality withing the visualizations panel would help a lot for insightful analysis.

  11. Build a more powerful statistical analysis interface

    Add a powerful analysis interface like SPSS or WIncross so power BI can handle whole cycle of market research. Currently 60-80% of time is invested in manual powerpoint reporting. Or else create a plug in so the .csv or excel outpur from these tools can be drectly use to create dashborad or reports

  13. conditional formatting based on another measures

    Conditional Formatting Based on a different measure

    Example:

    I have put the "CapSalesAmount" measure in the value field of metrix while applying the conditional formatting on "CapSalesAmount" measure based on another measure created "CycleSalesAmount".

    I want to highlight the "CapSalesAmount" against the "CycleSalesAmount" measure while only putting "CapSalesAmount" in the value field.

    I don't want to put or show the "CycleSalesAmount" measure value anywhere in metrics just to highlight the "CapSalesAmount" Value if that is greater than "CycleSalesAmount" for the same column and same row in that metrix.

  14. 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…

  16. Control charts (mR, Pareto etc.).

    It would be awesome if power bi could provide a control chart option with mR charts, Pareto charts etc.

    This would be very helpful in my line of work.

  20. Allow for people to slice a page by data table columns.

    Let's say you have several columns that have values in them. The column names are buckets that you would like to slice your data by on the dashboard. Allow people to create slicers based on the columns that are in their data tables.
