  1. Download crosstab data

    There should be an option to download data in crosstab form from any visual. It's very frustrating that the data is currently downloaded in unpivot form.

  2. ISALL or ISTOTAL DAX Function

    There needs to be an "ISALL" or "ISTOTAL" DAX function that would return TRUE if the DAX is being calculated in a total row of a matrix or table visualization, for example, and FALSE otherwise. This would make creating measure totals far easier than using HASONEVALUE OR ISINSCOPE where you need to specify individual columns. This is very important for self-service BI in order to protect users that are not aware of the quirks of DAX measure totals.

  3. locale identefier for tables names and column names as it was Powerview and Pivot table

    When I was working with powerview and pivot table.. there is a property in the connection string which is "Locale Identfier=11265"
    which will present my tables and columns names with translation I imported to analysis service using tools like
    (BIDS or SSAS Tabular Translator)

  5. New Filter Experience - suppress counts after values

    On the new filter experience - in addition to things like being able to sort the filters, format them individually, etc. - I'd like the ability to be able to suppress the "row counts" that show up after each of the values in the filter.

    Those might be useful if the filter is on a fact table - but when there is a filter on a dimension table, the number displayed has absolutely no value to a business user. It doesn't represent data points, etc. - it just shows how many times a value shows up in a particular dimension…

  6. 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…

  7. Enable "Full Refresh" of Table with Incremental Refresh Policy

    Sometimes I want my data model to do a "full refresh," and ignore incremental refresh policies. E.g., when scheduling refreshes in the Service, for each scheduled time, could there please be an option for either incremental or full? And, for dataset refreshes triggered by the Power BI API, could there please be an option to trigger an incremental or full refresh?

  8. Ability to move the visual title to the bottom of the visual instead of the top

    Sometimes I want to add the title of the visual at the bottom of the visual. For example, when adding a title to an image in some cases it's more intuitive for the user to read the title / comments at the bottom.

  9. Auto Units using DAX Format

    In several Power BI reports, I need to concatenate numbers with string using DAX to make a insightful statement. While doing so, I observed that the numbers cannot be formatted to Auto Units using a single Format_String in FORMAT() such that they can be displayed as 5K, 10M, 20B, 1,023, 1, 99 etc. based on the filters selected.

    Please add a new Format_String for FORMAT() in DAX that can be used to populate numbers in Auto Units format.

  10. 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?

  12. Formatting options for key influencers visual

    Please consider adding formating options (colors, titles etc) for key influencers visual, so it can be added to any report and fit in as part of the report instead of standing out as it does now

  13. Add Automatic option for "Display units" under Field formatting in Table visual

    Currently all charts and cards have an option to automatically format units in Thousands, Millions etc depending on the size of the number. For the Table and Matrix visuals however, we have to manually select one of them, which does not work well across dimensions with very different number sizes.

  14. Dynamic currency formatting

    There are a number of ideas relating to currency formatting but none quite capture the essence of the issue at hand.

    Dynamically changing the currency *is* entirely possible through a number of means.

    What isn't possible at the moment is displaying/formatting the output in a meaningful way.

    Assuming you have a currency slicer and a 'dynamic' measure, there are as far as I know there are three options:

    - Format as decimal number (trusting the user to infer currency from slicer/filter selection)
    - E.g. FORMAT([Sales], "$#,##0.0") which converts the measure to text and we lose the ability to sort values…

  15. Minimize Navigation Builder (Smaller than 240px)

    I really like the new "Navigation Builder". It would be nice if it would minimize completely out or at least down to the "hamburger" size of the default menu. When in full screen report mode, I need an option to maximize the report to as much space as possible.

  16. Export current theme as a Json file

    We have a wonderful option - switch theme to import theme as a JSON file.It would be great to have an export option to export current theme as a JSON file from a report.

  18. error investigation

    When an error occurs, I want to know the problem and how to handle it.
    Also, I want you to implement a function that allows users to investigate based on errors when they occur.

  19. Whats new or changed initial popup

    We create Reports and upload them to Power BI online then share them with a number of other users.

    When we upload a new version of the report with changes i.e. new tabs or moved visuals it would be helpful if there was an initial popup window when the report is loaded for report readers to acknowledge that allows up to explaining the updates.

  20. Set Frame size in Sharepoint Web Part

    The Power BI Web Part (embed in sharepoint online) works well for me, but I want to adjust the frame size.

    I have a report that is wider and longer than the web part frame so I have double vertical and horizontal scrollbars. The only options for frame size are '16:9' or '4:3'.

    The frame size should default to the report size (or allow input of height and width of the iframe in px)
