  1. Tizen browser (chromium engine) support

    We want to display our dashboards in a Tizen browser (Chromium M56 engine) but it keeps looping back to the login page.

    Currently, MS doesn't support this browser. Would be great if you would.

  2. Integrate comments into Teams

    The comments feature is great but it's rendered useless if no one knows that they've got a comment that they need to read.

    The comments feature has so much potential but we're on the verge of advising people not to use it as not everyone is getting alerted when a comment is posted that references their name. We all have Teams now so this would work.
    At present... those with mobile phones get the alert on their mobile and for them it works great - but not all have work mobiles. Our onmicrosoft.com accounts are not mapped to our outlook…

  4. 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.

  5. Allow linebreaks

    Allow us to insert line breaks in column (and row) headers. We can do it in Excel and Access. Sometimes a specification needs to be added that just does not appear correct on the same level as the header.

  6. Visibility Error with version 15.6.1207.2, ever since update

    Ever since the update to 15.6.1207.2, I am getting an error in regards to a hidden expression, "Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermission, mscorlib, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed. The report ran fine prior to updating, now it is toast. and I can't make it run in paginated report builder.

  7. Color tables in model view

    The ability to label tables with colors in the "model view". For example, blue for fact tables, red for dimension tables, and yellow for dictionaries. Another color for bridge tables. In this way, the entire star schema would be readable at first sight.

  8. Export to .csv: set encoding when exporting

    In Power BI service I published a Dashboard which I export to .csv. To be able to reuse this .csv file I need to set the .csv to a particular encoding.
    It would be nice to have a standard encoding selected as default, but within a dropdown menu (in advanced settings for example) to be able to select the right encoding.

    other possibility is set it per workspace or the admin has to do it in the admin portal.

  12. Ability to change date format on Power BI Online

    'Power BI Online' does not provide the ability to change date format without changing the language settings (whereas this function is available on 'BI Desktop'.

    I need to view date as dd/mm/yy. However, date is displayed as mm/dd/yyyy because language is set to English or browser default which is also English.
    I want to keep language as English but display date in European format.

  14. Create ability on desktop version to save without data.

    We are a high security environment and use the on-premise Power BI Server version. NIST and IRS requirements say we can't save our reports to a network drive that contain our data. We would like option so save Pwr BI reports without data. We understand we would have to refresh the data when we open it each time, but that would mean an individual would have permission to the server to do so.

  16. automatic legend for conditional formatting

    I am missing the option within conditional formatting to automatically create a color legend. The workaround so far is to screenshot the color legend within the conditional format settings, then cut it within another program like Word or Paint and then insert it as a picture + I have to insert a text as well. An automatic legend option could save us heaps of time

  17. favicon from the website is bad in a dark browser

    Change the favicon from https://app.powerbi.com/. It's just bad on a bookmarks toolbar from a dark themed browser (like New Edge).

  18. Evaluate Measure

    In Excel you can walk though a formula step by step to see how it gets a certain value. We should be able to do this with measures in Power BI to help troubleshoot measures.

  20. 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.
