  1. Tooltips update when selecting multiple areas of a chart

    It would be good if when selecting multiple areas of a chart (ie. 2 or 3 of 8 bars or 1 or 2 slices of a pie) the tool tip updated to show total of selection or showed more data like the average max min etc.
    This would allow for selecting parts of a chart to get a quick total or compare the average of 3 months to the yearly, etc.

  2. view as specified date

    The ability to view as a particular date would be very useful. Many graphs we use are based on today's date (autocalculated by Power BI), therefore, the ability to view the dashboard as though it was a particular date would be very beneficial e.g. the last day of the month to review the previous month's targets and figures.

  3. Tooltip for Analytics

    There should be a label or tooltip to show which analytics has been used. For eg. in a bar chart, if I'm showing an average line as well as a maximum, how would the user/viewer identify which line that is for.

  5. Current Aug 2016 version don't support Dynamic lines in x and y axes, which works on measure . Thru this we can segregate the area in graph.

    I am working on Menu Engineering task and i have designed a good report which is showing me popularity% on y and Item profit on X axes , menu Er has 4 component, If an item is both profitable and popular then it’s a STAR. It it’s profitable but relatively unpopular then enter the word CHALLENGE. If the item is relatively unprofitable but popular then enter the word WORKHORSE. Finally, a DOG is an unprofitable and unpopular menu item, i want to segregate thru these dynamic line of X and Y Axes.

  6. XIRR produces different results in Power BI than Excel. XNPV matches though

    I got an error trying to calculate xirr:

    MdxScript(Model) (1,42) Calculation error in measure
    ... The XIRR function couldn't find a solution

    The same set of cashflows produce a number in Excel -
    XNPV works in both cases but it looks like the root finder is not converting in Power BI but it works find in Excel

  9. When using Analytics on a chart, the ability to show what they are on the legend

    Currently when you are using analytics for example, to show the average of each bar, there should be a way to show what the bar is on the legend. In addition, even though there is only 1 measure within a chart, you currently do not have the option to even show a legend, so to kill to birds with one stone I would advise these enhancements to happen concurrently.

  14. Integrate SSIS 'Data Mine' tools into Power BI

    I would really like to see Power BI take the same Data Mining abilities shown in SSIS 2013.
    I am thinking about being able to quickly produce linear/expo regression, tree-sketch or forecasting models, based on the Power BI data source directly, and immediately edit them into our dashboards.

  15. Function for easy and fast accumulation of values

    Add a visual or a function to automatically show values accumulated without building new complex formulas.

    (with data that has more then 3 Mio. rows accumulation formulas get problems)

  17. Split Azure Tags into separate values

    We want to use tags in Azure to Analyse and visualize data in power bi, but unfortunately, all tags are included in only one field. It is not possible to create charts with that. Please split the tags into separate fields or a separate table.

  20. Export finest grain data to Excel for a visual based on an SSAS Data Source

    Would like to grab lowest-level data for a visual, to export to Excel, from a visual based on an Analysis Services data source. This would be a competitive advantage over Tableau, as Tableau does *not* support this for Analysis Services data sources.
