  1. Data Labels Variance

    On hover on data labels within comparison charts (eg a Year over Year Line chart) I should be able to see the variance YoY as a percentage. I always get asked for this in my dashboards using PowerBI

  2. In-built Time Intelligence with MTD, YTD, Prior Year calculations and Rolling "X" Months

    It would be nice to have Time Intelligence calculations for every dashboard, It is difficult to use DAX with Dynamic date. Let suppose user want to see his MTD, YTD for the past months.

  3. Would like to have an argument builder wizard for creating complex matrixes

    I think it would be useful to have a wizard like power query where you can set the specifics of a visual for example.

    Top N customers who have spent/havnt spent in the last ? month

    etc

    I think this would be a major selling point of Power Bi if implemented.

    Also since we no what our date table is I think it would be useful to have built in time intelligence functions which could be driven of the side menu.

    Thanks

  4. Automatic relationships based on the table data and not just the columns names

    It could be very useful to base the automatic relationships on the content of the tables, when data are similar on 2 tables like customer names, or date.

  5. Enable drill down into the grid. Same way of SRS or Excel

    with the drill down enable in the views, pages or dashboards will be easier to analyze data. Also will help to keep the reports compact and expand or collapse interactively.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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)

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Request to bring in all data from a Adobe analytics property not just top 20 countries

    The data in Adobe Analytic does not match with the data in Power BI due to the product design of importing data for top 20 countries only. We will need power BI to import all data from Adobe Analytics property or we are unable to use it.
