  1. export data that contains link elements do not work

    Exporting data just works great; however, if the data view contains a link/href the excel with data is not created.

    Please help me on this, as it's important for users adopt this great technology.

    Thank you.

    • Power BI Free users can see Power BI Reports embedded in Teams Channels

      At present, users with Power BI Free licenses cannot view Power BI reports embedded in their team's Teams Channels, EVEN if they report in question is hosted on a Premium Workspace. They are forced to view it direct on the Power BI Cloud Service.

      This is not a good user experience, and cheapens the proposed value of the Premium product. Free users should be able to see (at minimum) Premium-hosted Reports embedded in Teams Channels, the same as all Pro users are currently able to.

      • Composite Model

        My model is composite (Many to Many), as it is a preview feature we can only use it for Reporting purpose,sharing is not possible.When can we expect a general release feature for the same.

        • General Tooltip or Infotip for Visuals

          It would be cool to have the ability to add Informational Custom Tooltips/Infotips to visuals.

          For example, a report curator would be able to add information about what a visual calculates or displays. This could show as a small "i" or "?" that when hovered over, shows a pop over with information about that visual.

          This could help users quickly get the most value out of a report and it's containing visuals.

          • Ability To Enter Comments In a Table or Matrix Graphic

            Similar to the idea for commenting on dashboards, but expanded to the table or matrix graphics. Would be a huge win if was integrated in the reports rolls out of commenting.

            • Search for reports, datasets and workspaces for fields/keywords.

              It would be awesome if there was a way to search across all reports and datasets in Power BI, not just what I have access to. Being able to search for "Sales" and see all the different reports that have been made would make discovery a lot easier. Users could see what other users have already built and what datasets are already established. Then users could request access to what they need. This could essentially serve as an automatic data catalog for Power BI to find what others have already done. Perhaps for security have the option for a report…

              • Support for Google Tag Manager to track report usage

                We'd love to get more insight as to how (and if) our users are actually using and interacting with our reports. We looked into the JavaScript event model that embedding gives us, but it's quite limited and doesn't really give us what we need.

                For example, if we wanted to know how many users as choosing the "Export Data" menu item on reports, we have no way of doing this with current functionality.

                So, what would be great is if we could configure a Google Tag Manager container ID at the PBI account level. Then, when reports get rendered, PBI…

                  • Convert Tableau reports to Power BI reports

                    Yes, Power BI has been able to do even more than what other competitors can offer. But when considering to use Power BI, we do hope there is a quick tool at least can help us automatically convert 80% tableau reports to POwer BI Reports. Thus, it can save us tons of time. Otherwise, most of tableau customers have to stay with it.

                    • power bi as start page

                      I'd like my staff and colleagues to be able to set Power Bi as their Start Page when logging on to Office 365. This will support adoption, but importantly support our effort to get people managing through data.

                      Loads of other aspects of 365 apps there.... OneDrive, even delve... come on Power BI Team get your product promoted and up thwere where it belongs!!!

                        The users of MS products frequently hit the F4 to make the software apply the latest action performed (change format, add, delete, etc.)

                        • Provide further data for the O365 Adoption Preview API

                          It would be great if in the O365 Adoption Preview, we could break down some of the data further. I would love to break down activity usage per department on a month-by-month basis, however it seems that with the way the data relationships are pulled in - the API doesn't allow for these breakdowns. I can either choose monthly overall activity usage for the whole organisation, or a company breakdown on only the last month's figures.

                          The monthly data for previous months seem to consist of fixed, predetermined totals rather than figures allocated to specific users which prevents us from…

                              In PowerBI/DAX you need to type out all…

                              In Excel you can search/select a formula and then simply add/insert/modify the details (cell, columns, numbers etc.) in a submenu. This is much nicer than typing [,:;( in a specific order (DAX) which is too difficult to understand for everyone.

                              If formulas/functions can be entered like in Excel, will be loved by many people I assume.

                                • Reducing the risk of publishing unfiltered data to AAD B2B external users

                                  I have built a two nearly identical reports. One is unfiltered for an internal audience, and the other is RLS-filtered for an external (AAD B2B) audience.

                                  To publish externally, I have a separate PBIX file with RLS that I publish to a separate workspace that I then publish to an App shared externally with a security group in AAD B2B.

                                  However, it is possible that by mistake, I could publish an internal report to the workspace shared with external users.

                                  It would be great to:
                                  1. Detect and flag if a workspace content is being shared externally with individuals or…

                                    • Improve Usage Metrics available for Power BI Service Administrator role.

                                      I am granted a Power BI service admin role which gives me access to usage metrics. As a chief Power BI Administrator in my organisation, i need access to the usage metrics to understand the usage and promote deployment of the tool.
                                      Currently i noticed the following limitations and the current statistics are near to basic.

                                      1. Unable to export data - No export option.
                                      2. Unable to Drill down data - No drill down to do further analysis.
                                      3. we have a read only report meaning you cannot use this data.
                                      4. Usage period not included.

                                        Our large worldwide organization has multiple Azure AD tenants and we are using Azure AD B2B and guest accounts extensively. We have a need to create multiple PBI tenants but we do not want to maintain local Azure AD accounts to be able to use full functionality of Power BI. Please enable full support for guest accounts in Power BI and allow a guest account to login to a different PBI tenant than the original PBI tenant tied to the primary account in the source AD tenant. Regards

                                        • Email Format Improvements or Ability to Modify

                                          I need the ability to modify the email format that gets sent through subscriptions. The size of the image in the email is far too small to be legible in an email window (both on phone and desktop), and prevents us from using subscriptions to fully automate our reporting. This is the biggest drawback to adoption that I face today. Execs don't like the small print or the thick Microsoft borders, which combined require them to open the attachment to read what is supposed to be a quick flash of data for them. It would be great if we had…
