  1. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. I think it's ridiculous that users cannot sign up for Power BI with an individual email account when they are taking a class in Power BI .

  6. Merge ideas on ideas forum

    I find the idea forum is loaded with duplicates of ideas where votes and comments are split between multiple threads.
    It would be useful if the community could propose a merger with other ideas on the forum (with the link) and then admins could merge the ideas and remove the duplicates.

    I think this would make it easier for Microsoft to gain a clearer idea of what users want. And for users would help their ideas to gain a common thread of conversation, plus gain a stronger voice for the ideas they want.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Add Teams data to the Office365 Adoption Report

    The supplied user adoption report should include data and metrics on Teams in Office365 Adoption report. Please add this content in addition to the metrics supplied on all the other apps in the suite

  11. Devops Process

    There is currently no clear, built-in system for source control, test, gated approval and release of new reports.

    If you have admin rights, you have god mode. Use it with caution.

    As a result, IMHE analysts teams are likely to learn the hard way about all the reasons why formal IT teams have developed governance controls for software development and release.

    I can imagine this becoming a functionality of Power BI Premium since it's an enterprise type feature.

    I can imagine a scenario where the reports authors publish to a project in VSTS . Then VSTS' build environment runs unit…

  13. "Copy to workspace" functionality for Apps

    Currently it seems that it's impossible for end-users to access the dataset in Power BI - only in Excel! That's kinda crazy - please enable similar "copy to workspace" functionality as content packs.
    In particular, it should be possible for users to copy a report from an App and customize it - we need this for several use cases.

  14. Allow admins to control which users' identities are exposed in per-user usage metrics

    Usage metrics now expose per-user information - i.e. the names of the users that are accessing dashboards and reports.

    Allow admins control which users' names and info are picked up by the feature. In other words, admins can choose to "anonymize" certain sets of users so that their names do not appear in usage metrics.

  15. 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.

  17. Ability to Favorite a Report

    I'd like to be able to Favorite a Report just like we can with a Dashboard. Favoriting a Dataset makes sense too.

  18. Friendly query list when connecting to SAP BW

    When users connect to a SAP BW data source they are presented with the SAP BW back-end InfoArea hierarchy. This is highly technical in nature and often not primarily designed to be user facing but instead used to manage layered data architectures, security, etc.

    Given this, it would be desirable to be able to present an alternative information architecture; a curated, more user friendly layout of queries that are meaningful for analysis in Power BI.

    Without such a friendly, understandable structure – there can be difficulty in a user finding information and hence potential adoption issues for BW data sources.…

  20. BRING BACK CUSTOM VISUALS FOR PEOPLE WITHOUT PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTS

    Due to current data security considerations, it is not possible for people in my office to sign in to Power BI, since it also includes the Power BI Service. This didn't cause any major problems with learning how to use Power BI, as we could enjoy all the Desktop features. With the custom visuals now off limits to those without the professional account, however, we are limited to whatever comes out of the box. Please switch back the ability to download custom visuals without signing in.
