  1. 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.

    • Add 3PP LOB to boomTnL

      3PP isn't currently in boomTnL. The 3PP team runs approximately 5 tests a month and we need to manually track each TnL in Omniture.

        • 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.

          • 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.
            5. Dashboard is…

              • Rename "Print" in Power BI service to "Print Screenshot"

                Lack of real printing is hurting adoption. Microsoft ignores this issue and keeps delivering features that a very tiny minority of users want/need. Printing affects everybody. Not everybody walks around with a fully charged laptop / tablet all day. FIX PRINTING NOW AND BURY TABLEAU FOREVER! Or don't

                • Allow *FREE* Email Subscriptions for content hosted in Premium capacity

                  Please allow email notifications to be free for consumers of content hosted on Premium capacity. We bought Premium capacity to communicate to our external partners, but right now if they want to subscribe to updates, they each need to buy a Pro license. This will inhibit our ability to drive adoption with our partners, and ultimately, may even hinder our ability scale this internally.

                  • allow pushing of Power BI Apps to azure AD B2B guest users

                    Currently, it's not possible to push Power BI Apps to users who are Azure AD B2B guest users. Please enable this capability! It would greatly speed adoption with our suppliers.

                    • Our large worldwide organization has multiple Azure AD tenants and we are using Azure AD B2B and guest accounts extensively. We have a need

                      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

                      • User Search - a way to see which workspaces a user is enrolled in

                        It would be nice to be able to search by any particular user in the org and see which workspaces they are assigned to.

                        • The shared dashboard email from the service should have a link to an intro video

                          The email that is generated from Power BI when someone shares a dashboard should include a link to a short video on how to navigate the service aimed at end users of the service e.g. “First time user? Find out how to get the most out of Power BI”. We certainly had several users who have

                          • Export visual as picture

                            Having the ability to copy a visual (with applied highlighting) to paste into other applications would allow for reports to be written with narrative around each visual.

                            If pasted into a Microsoft office application it could carry the link back to the relevant report (if permissions allowed) with the filters that feed the visual, essentially a bookmark link.

                            Would be great if this would include all of the visual, rather than just what is displayed on screen, for example a matrix with all the rows. (Should also apply for printing)
                            Could wrap the picture in a power bi branded frame…

                                • Export to Powerpoint with filters

                                  We need the ability to export with current filters selected. Without this capability the export function is limited. Export to Adobe with preselected filter without having to save the report would work as well.

                                  • Requiring users that you share a dashboard with to have a Pro license really hurts adoption of this product

                                    Require a Pro license in order to share a dashboard out, but do not require a Pro license in order to have a dashboard shared with them. We just lost a massive amount of users due to this, which has caused a negative opinion of the product and are now spreading the bad word throughout an organization of 40,000 employees/users.
