  1. Allow Import of Excel 3D Maps

    Excel's 3D Maps functionality is very rich. Please allow the import of custom maps with their custom regions, as Excel currently does.

  2. When will you allow .mil e-mail addresses to sign up for Power BI?

    I was recently allowed to download Power BI Desktop in my work computer. However, because I work for the Department of the Army I cannot sign up with a .mil e-mail address. It would be a great improvement if we were allowed to do so.

  3. Please add Microsoft's name to the list of business that support the Paris Climate Agreement

    Tried calling your headquarters to find the proper channel for this request, and was told HR. So I'll make my plea here. I noticed that Microsoft's name is not on this list: www.lowcarbonusa.org Please show us, your customers, that you support that the US uphold the Paris Climate Agreement by adding your name. Thank you.

  5. Make the scroller for the "field" well (far right) slightly bigger.

    UX

    The up/down scroller for the fields/table selection area is very small, would help to have it slightly larger.

  6. Power BI needs language to make visual properties dynamically changeable.

    I know DAX is a data centric language but Power BI needs commands or functions to make visual properties dynamically changeable.
    It would be great if PBI allowed value passing to the "Format" fields. My problem is that I use a slicer to present different metrics but I can't change the Start and End values for the different metrics since those are currently typed in. When one metric has a scale of 0-to-100 while another metric has a scale of 0-to-5 the second metric displays like a flat line. If I could lookup the scale when changing metrics and applying…

  7. Enable Image for empty files

    I would like the insert image function in power bi desktop to be enabled without having data inserted. I wish to make templates for reports for categories with their own image logo in the corner. In my opinion text and shapes could be enabled too.

    When I export visual data to csv, unicode text doesn't show correctly (etc. Mongolian Cyrillic). The text data is of AL32UTF8 charset which comes from Oracle DB.

  9. Switch between roles

    Hi,

    There is a User who has two roles. The access to these roles are maintained in a table which has all the dimensions as columns. For example if a User is a Geography Head, Geo_Id column will have that particular geography's code against the user.
    In our scenario the user is both Geography Head and also Vertical Head, and Geography code and Vertical code are populated against the user in the table. When we do Row level security, the data is fetched as a combination of Geography and Vertical, but the user should be able to see the whole…

  12. pin report/dashbaord to start screen like a contact or website

    It would be great if a report or dashboard could be pinned to the WIN10 start screen so that users could go directly to it. It would function the same way pinning a contact or website currently functions.

  13. Datasheet View scrolling

    In Datasheet view the scroll bars needs to be much more user friendly. They are too small. They do not have arrows on the corners for easier scrolling. Every time a change is made or you press enter the whole screen automatically re-directs all the way to the left. This should not happen. Also, we should be able to add a new column and have it stay without putting in the formula immediately.

  14. Remove the request to enter PII when downloading client

    When downloading the client from PBI site, it always requests you to submit your PII making it seem like it's needed to be entered to download the client. It's misleading and unnecessary. This request should be removed or done in a different manner

  16. Morph Power BI Desktop and Excel to become one Super Tool

    It feels like the roadmap for Excel is that it will become more tightly integrated with Power BI. Isn't this the natural next step?

  17. Constant Line values only allow whole numbers, not decimals in value

    Constant Line values can be negative or positive but only whole numbers or integers.

    I sometimes need to set the Constant Line to 1.5 or - 3.50
