  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.

  6. Replace dax with an easier more intuitive language

    Replace DAX with an easier more intuitive language that's quicker to code. Power BI language and user experience is meant to be self-service and easy to use and supposedly easier than Excel. But eh underlying DAX language is not easy to code. More complex measures that should take quick to code require more effort than SSRS or Tableau or any other language that I know of to get to the same result. Surely an easier and better language can be developed. Replace it with a tableau or SSRS -type scripting language that obviously still uses the current context etc, but…

  10. Create a second-class Power BI community for non-corporate accounts

    The Power BI community is not restricted to people with authorized corporate accounts.

    Because my corporation does not grant any employee the permissions required to log-in to the Power BI community, we are now cut-off from the Power BI community.

    Can we create a second-class community somewhere, where everyone can share their issues and solutions ?

  13. PROVIDE CHEEPER PLANS FOR SMALL ORGANIZATIONS. EG. IF MYSELF AND MANAGER HAVE LISENCE, WE CANT SHARE FINDINGS TO CEO(CheepVIEW ONLY LISENCE)

    myself and manager have pro lisence but we cannot create a view for the CEO because he needs to have full pro lisence. if this is followed your product would suck in the industry in front of products like tableau or qlikview which have seperate viewing lisence at a cheeper rate for the higher ups who do not need to edit the data and only have to view the dashboards. Especially for a small to medium scale enterprize its mental and plain right stupid in investing for a pro lisence for all its employees. provide packages wherein so many employees…

  18. Make creating Power BI excel workbooks intuitive

    I a pretty technical user but have never been able to get a Excel workbook to update date when loaded to Power BI,

    Using the analyze in excel feature:
    Nope, update not allowed.

    Saving a file in Sharepoint:
    Nope, can't load to a group.

    Creating the file online from a report or dataset:
    Refresh not supported

    I know it's possible, but the secret way that the excel spreadsheet need to be configured is not obvious.

    I have tried an given up more times than I can count.

    Perhaps there is a document that describes the steps, but it's lost in…

  19. Enable the use of Bookmarks in the Table/Matrix Visuals

    Most users would generally like to export their entire report into PDF/PPT. Using the URL method limits the ability to export the entire report at once. Since it opens every report in a new page.
    It would be so useful to have the ability for the URLs to act like BOOKMARKS so that navigation within the Report is dynamic and there can be a central landing page. Also, this will avoid creating static landing pages (example -for every Country/Region if the table/matrix visual) . So in my example, I have 7 reports and each of these 7 reports are viewed…

  20. 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.
