  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",…

  5. 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…

  7. 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).

  8. 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 :)

  9. 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?

  10. 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…

  14. Stamp Visual with Scroll

    How to Stamp Visual with Scroll?

    Every visual introduce the possibility to scroll itself when the number of elements in axis are too much. This is not a problem when we consume the PBI Report by Web or Mobile but this is a limitation when we want to stamp or save it a copy in pdf. It would be really great to be able to print a report sheet with a scroll table and be able to represent all the elements inside it in a single print

  15. Publish a Power BI Roadmap

    Currently there does not seem to be a roadmap for Power BI. This makes it very hard to plan implementations, as meetings tend to end up with someone saying "Microsoft must know this is a winning feature. I can't believe it's not on their roadmap."

    As the person who has to turn the stakeholders dreams into a Power BI reality, this leaves me feeling uneasy, as I can name at least half a dozen must have features that we still don't have.

  16. 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?

  17. multiple series line chart

    A visualization that is able to create a line chart with multiple series like in the Excel software. I can't believe your software is not able to create multiple line series charts. It was my understanding Power Bi is excel in steroids. but your software can not create a chart with multiple lines series so disappointed.

  18. Better organization of visuals in Office Store

    Please add better metadata and sorting abilities to the visualizations in the Office Store. Allow visuals to be sort by last updated, created date, rating, etc and expose these metadata elements on the main screen so that you can see them without clicking into the visual.

  19. One e-mail notification for multiple alerts

    Currently, e-mails are triggered for every individual KPI's alert set (For example, I have 20 cards in my dashboard for which alerts are configured. On a particular day/hour I can receive 20 emails in case my thresholds are not met for these cards).

    However, a mechanism where single email, as per the frequency set, which includes all KPIs, not meeting/crossing threshold mentioned can be sent to avoid unnecessary clutter of alert e-mails.

  20. Enable Bookmarks in the new App Navigation Builder

    In the New Navigation Builder (Microsoft Apps) it would be great ot be able to select existing bookmarks to navigate to.

    Right now you can add a bookmark link as long as you Open it in the Current Tab, or New Tab. If you try to open it in the Content Area you will receive an error.
    Love this new Navigation Builder, but when you open the Bookmark in a New or Existing tab the navigation panel is removed.
    I have tried to use the URL link of the Bookmark from the App as well as the report, and neither…
