  1. In pie and dougnth chart change the parenthesis as a separation symbo

    In pie and dougnth chart change the parenthesis as a separation symbol, because its usually been used to represent negative numbers and it's causing erroneous data interpretation.

    Excel's charts uses the comma.

    Example:

    Credits, 500 instead of Credits (500) or Credits, -500 instead of Credits (-500)

  3. Need to publish tenant specific service alerts in the Power BI service

    Companies and users of Power BI need a central location for all their power BI information. Today, service notices are posted in the Power BI community site, but not everyone looks there.

    Service notices should be:
    1. Posted in the notification center in the Power BI service
    2. Should include tenant specific notices
    3. Users should be able to sign up to receive an additional email notification.

    Today, Microsoft build some "glue" that partially enables this for Microsoft employees. Power BI should build this into the product so that other companies have the same (better) capabilities.

  4. Need ability to establish a tentant specific privacy notice

    In addition to the standard Microsoft product privacy notice, we need the ability for our company to post a company specific privacy notice.

    The Power BI admin should have the ability to append a tenant specific privacy notice to the Power BI tenant, so that users are aware of their corporate privacy policies.

    You can currently turn off publishing organizational content packs to the entire organization. We are looking into adding whitelisting and blacklisting of users and groups later. Keep voting if you are interested in this feature!

  12. Connect to datasets in the Power BI service from third-party applications, eg Tableau

    Data warehousing is old school.
    Power BI has powerful transform and modelling capabilities. They are often much faster to develop a poc on. However for a production environment, real world customers have users of competitor vis layer products. If we build the prod data set in pbi only then those users can plug in say tableau to visual a power bi dataset.

    So now I have to decide XML in a logic app, create a sql Db, write sql code and enforce security policies for a sql db. That’s a lot of rework to play catch up to pbi.

    If…
