  2. Percent of grand total in Power BI Service

    In Power BI Desktop you can do "Show value as" -> "Percent of grand total" in a visual. But this is not possible when editing a report in Power BI Service. Please enable it.

  3. Minor bug when creating a date table using CALENDARAUTO with a one-to-one relationship

    When a date table is created using the CALENDARAUTO() function against a table that has unique dates and then a relationship is created between the two tables by dragging the date column in the date table to the date column in the "fact" table then an error is returned saying that a circular dependence was detected, if the relationship is created in the other direction then no error is thrown (which is correct). this only happens when the relationship would be one-to-one

  4. Grand total

    Grand totals currently return the measure at a Total level. So sometimes the value is incorrect as it is not an aggregate of the values in the table. PowerBI should at least give the option to calculate the Sum, Average, Weighted Average or Measure Calculation for the Grand Total.

  5. Toggle Between Stacked and 100% Stacked

    Allow user to toggle a Stacked (Bar or Column) between 100% Stacked or Stacked. Users can then choose themselves if they want to see the volumes or percentages. This choice could simply be added to the ellipsis menu on the chart.

  6. 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.

  9. Power BI Dataset Design App

    In the future there should be a dedicated app for designing datasets exclusive of Power BI Desktop. Power BI Desktop's existing modeling capabilities should be retained but all of this modeling functionality and future modeling investments should go to the new app. (This is similar to what happened with Power BI add-ins for Excel).

    The new dataset design app would be capable of targeting Azure Analysis Services servers and would contain the very best modeling features from existing designer experiences as well as application lifecycle management (ALM).

    The app would enable/disable features based on the target server (PBI or AS?…

  10. Set value axis min and max with formula/measure

    I would like the ability to set value axis min and max values based on a formula or a calculated measure so they are dynamic depending on data selections.

  12. nested columns in a bar chart

    Nested columns on a bar chart is pretty basic functionality available in Tableau & Cognos (allowing you to identify the min/max value for the combination of columns)

  14. Use ARC Map's driving time as a filter

    ArcMap and an associated table

    if I define a region by driving time, I hope the table shows only the data points in the region.

    Currently I have to select all points in the region in order for the table to refresh.

  15. SMALL() of excel in a DAX function

    There is no function that returns the N smaller number of a given sample.

    In Excel its the function SMALL() where you have to input the sample you want to analyze and the ranking of the number you want. In spanish the function is called K.ESIMO.MENOR

    Kind regards

  17. Expand one single row: Expand "Row"... or Show Next "Row" Level... for one row, vs. all?

    I love the matrix "Expand to next level", and "Show Next Level" options, however our Financial Statement users would like to choose one row in the report to either 'expand' or 'show next', without changing the appearance of the other rows in the matrix.

    If this is possible now, without having to isolate say the 'Promotion' line first on the report, I would be interested in learning that.

    Thanks!
    Mark

  18. String regex replacement for displayed values

    Have the ability to replace the displayed value of any data by using a regular expression. For example, in a datetime field, something like s/(\d+\/\d+\/\d+).*/\1/ would snip off anything but the date.
