  1. 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.

  2. Deployment Pipelines Rollback and Version Control

    There would be a great idea if you can add feature of Rollback the Report to the previous version if let say the Deployment did not go well. Also, would be great if we can have reports version history.

  3. Deployment Pipelines - Show Message before Deployment

    In order to eliminate mistakenly clicked the deployed button, it would be a great idea to have some warning message before proceeding with the deployment to the next stage.

  4. Matrix Hierarchies empty levels

    When using the martrix visual (which is the one most similar to Excel Power Pivot), hierarchies empty level are not hidden and it is possible to keep expanding empty levels of the hierarchy. Hierarchy empty levels are quite common in ragged hierarchies. Excel hides this levels.

  5. Option to disable the hyperlink in Power BI exports (PDF, Powerpoint)

    Currently, the exports from Power BI reports to PDF and PowerPoint contain a hyperlink which returns you to Power BI service. This wil be very confusing, when I need to send my export to someone who doesn't have acces to the Power BI Service.

    Please allow us the option to disable this hyperlink

  7. Dynamic column header in Power BI using formula or expression

    In existing power BI version we can only rename or hard code column header. request you yo please provide dynamic column header functionality. For example, If we need to populate column header using some formula or expression then it's not possible in power BI.

  9. Warn me when my M/PowerQuery code references fields that don't exist.

    Is there any reason why #PowerQuery couldn't warn you if you've misspelled [Some_Colum] like it does if you mistype #"Some Stepp"?

    When refactoring in #PowerBI and #Excel I sometimes replace source queries, then spend ages hunting down field names that don't match.

  10. Functional Copy paste of visuals

    Copy and paste is hit or miss at best. I have spent way too much time trying to copy and paste visuals. This is basic functionality and it's terrible in PBI

  11. DAX R and PYTHON functions

    Provide DAX functions that execute R and Python scripts. Similar to how you can insert an R or Python step in Power Query, allow a construct similar to:

    Column =
    VAR MyVar = PYTHON("python code goes here")
    RETURN
    MyVar

    This would open up a whole world of analytics and other capabilities and complete the tight integration of R and Python within Power BI

  12. Custom Time for Subscriptions

    The Frequency for the Subscriptions are Hourly, Daily, Monthly, weekly etc.
    But if the requirement is to send out a subscription only during Business Hours its not possible.
    so can we add custom times to send out the subscriptions like we add a time new while Gateway Scheduling.

  14. Upgrade Support for "scales" (R Package) version 1.1.1

    The "scales" R package was updated on 5/11/2020 to version 1.1.1. Currently, the version supported in Power BI Service is 1.0.0 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/service-r-packages-support). This prevents several newly-added features of "scales" from being used, such as the labelnumbersi function.

  15. Update/clean up the Power BI Ideas page

    There are old ideas that have been categorized at one point, but have since been implemented without updating the categorization. Recent example; idea submitted to rename items within the Selection Pane. That has been implemented for some time now, yet that idea is still categorized as "Planned". This just brings confusion to what's truly planned, in-progress, backlogged, etc.
