  1. Collapse App Navigation Pane

    The new app navigation experience is great but can take up a good chunk of screen retail space.

    The option to collapse/uncollapse the navigation pane would be a great feature for users, allowing them to focus entirely on the report/dashboard

  2. Create Viewer Access Role

    I have many end users who should remain as such. End users. They should be able to consume content period. Having this limited access will not allow them to edit, alter, delete, update, etc. They should also not be able to download content in a PBIX file as they won't be permission-ed to connect to the original data sources only. This would be very helpful to have, particularly in the new apps where I have various levels of users interacting with the published content, some who truly need read-only access (particularly in B2B situations where we publish data to external…

  3. Hide the App Navigation Pane

    Similarly to the Filter Pane, have the option to hide the new App navigation pane. Many of my reports are unreadable due to the size they are reformatted to when the App navigation pane is present.

  4. Data colors Conditional formatting for Charts with Legend split

    We are missing the Data colors Conditional formatting based on Field value, when a Legend split is used.

    Example
    Report: CO2 emissions by Country by Year

    Requirement: the Color to stick to the Country, since it visually associates the user with the content.
    Data colors Conditional formatting for now provides this only when the Country is plotted on the axis as stand alone.

    Chart Type: Stacked Column
    X axis: Years with Legend split by Country
    Y axis, Value: CO2 emissions

    Data Points:
    [
    {"Country":"US", "Color":"#B22234", "Year":2017, "CO2":100},
    {"Country":"US", "Color":"#B22234", "Year":2018, "CO2":102},
    {"Country":"US", "Color":"#B22234", "Year":2019, "CO2":105},
    {"Country":"UK", "Color":"#00247d", "Year":2017, "CO2":30},
    {"Country":"UK",…

  6. Change message when sign-in fails

    When we access to PowerBI with Incompatible browsers, we get a message 'We couldn't sign you in. Please try again.'

  7. New App Navigation Pane - Put a section within a section

    The ability to put a section underneath a section in the new Power BI App navigation pane. An example of what I mean is as follows:

    -> Marketing Reports

    ->2019

    ->Report 1

    ->Report 2

    ->2018

    ->Report 1

    ->Report 2

    ->2017

    ->Report 1

    ->Report 2

    -> Management Reports

    ->2019

    ->Report 1

    ->Report 2

    ->2018

    ->Report 1

    ->Report 2

    ->2017

    ->Report 1

    ->Report 2

    When you first open the app, you would only see two sections "Marketing Reports" and "Management Reports" and then once you expand each of those sections, you would only see the years. Then you could subsequently expand each…

  8. Bring ability to turn off self service licensing regarding MC193609

    Bring ability to turn off self service purchase regarding MC193609 as it is unacceptable for large customers to bypass centrally-managed license purchases for Power Platform. It must be controlled to avoid any type of shadow IT.

  11. Rename publish to web

    The publish to web feature, while useful, leads to confusion around those new to platform and possibly non native English speakers. The terminology "publish to web" can be confused by instructions to publish report from desktop to web service, which is fine. Publish to web exposes sensitive business data if author is not careful. While there is a secure option that will be coming soon, I propose renaming the feature to "Publish to Public". The term public is a bit clearer as to the audience. Alternative option could be "publish to public web", just something to allow users/businesses to clearly…

  12. Fix Releative Date Slicer / UTC issue.

    I know I can change my data to be reflected in UTC but then i suddenly show, for example, Invoices paid Septmeber 30th as being paid in October. this is so wrong!

    You simply need to change PBI where date slicers are reflecting local time and not UTC. I cannot display all of our financial data improperly (as UTC).

  14. Folders within workspace

    Would be nice to sort all your reports and dashboards in "My Workspace" instead of it being a big mess.
    A folder structure to categorize reports etc would be nice.

  15. Adjust workspace navigation pane width

    In Power BI service, can we have the ability to adjust the width of the Navigation pane? It's very useful as many of my workspaces have similar names and I need to check each individually. By increasing the navigation pane, I can see the full name of the workspace and choose accordingly :)

  16. Tooltips for buttons

    Since the July release it is possible to use tooltips on tables.
    It would be great if this option can be used on buttons in the action section.
    Now we have 'Back', 'Bookmark' and 'Q&A'
    Is it possible to add 'Tooltip' for buttons, so it's possible to use (for example) an info button, which shows information about the current report or visual for customer purposes?

  17. Allow a filter style sort at the top of the Slicer

    When using Filters in PowerBI it is possible to narrow down searches by typing words into a data box at the top of the pane. I would like the same feature at the top of a slicer (there should be the ability to turn this feature on or off under the roller section).

    This would mean that if there is a long drop-down the user wouldn't have to scroll down to the bottom of a list, they would just be need to type the first letters of the words into the box and be taken to the appropriate section. (example…

  19. Analyze in Excel for External Users

    A Power BI Pro user outside my organization can use reports I have shared to them via Power BI Service, but when they select 'Analyze in Excel', the user receives a 'Forbidden Activity ID' error message within Excel, then they are rerouted to the Microsoft sign in screen. From the sign in screen, their current password and email address does not work. Please allow users outside the organization to utilize the Analyze in Excel function since it is available.

  20. Send (e-mail) updates to App users

    After switching from distrubuting our company reports through Workspaces to Apps, I lost the conveniency of sending a update to the Workspace to reach all users, and make them aware of changes/updates in the Reports.
    Access to the Apps is handled by AAD security groups.
    I would like to have a way to send an update to all users, either from within the app, or maybe create a pop-up window within the App that shows up automatically when people open the App?
