  1. 3D Visuals in Power BI

    Just like an excel why are we not supported to have 3D visualizations which would give more attractiveness and more essence to customers

  2. Separate group ownership from group membership

    Our company reporting structure changes frequently and our BI team needs to be able to leverage the "Reports To" field of Azure AD Premium to dynamically determine group Membership. Individuals on our BI team must be able to possess Ownership, sans Membership, of multiple groups so that they can manage Power BI content for multiple workspaces. Currently, membership in multiple groups would require the BI team to "Report to" multiple people within the organization, which is not reflective of the typical business environment and is not an enterprise level solution. To enable company-wide adoption of Power BI, Group Ownership should…

  3. Power BI App and Self Service

    There doesn't seem to be a good way to allow for any self service report creation if you leverage Power BI apps. You could make the business users members of the application workgroup that you published the app from but then anything they do would be included in the next update and even worse, they could delete the dataset(s) associated with the app, basically deleting the app.

  4. KPI visual to display time-based KPIs

    In my organisation there are several KPIs (SLAs) which are based on average time (mean time to resolve/mean time to dispatch). The current KPI visualisations allow me to insert any measures that are a number or a percentage, however, I cannot build a visualisation based on time (if the average time is higher than the target time then mark it red, otherwise mark it green).

    It would be great if that option would be enabled!

  5. ArcGIS maps to be located in Power BI tenant's geographic location (e.g. Canada)

    Due to our company's privacy policies we need to ensure that ArcGIS maps are located and stored in the national cloud instance, in our case it's Canada. Can we expect this service any time soon?

  7. Share dataset

    In a team who is working in the same but with different perspectives is ideal not to invent the wheel again. If the dataset is share then the team work will be improve.

    Also in the case when a life connection is done and it is update using the Enterprise gateway don't have any sense if many persons are using the same connection (for example to a OLAP Cube) to "install" the Enterprise gateway again and refresh the same data that someone already updated.

    If the dataset is share then the Enterprise gateway can be installed only in a server…

  8. Enable granular permissions for Power BI service tenant level settings

    Allow granular permissions ( using Azure AD users and groups ) for the following tenant settings;

    Publish to web
    Allow sharing content to external users

    Both of these service settings when enabled are not audited for free users of the service ( the event is logged but the user name is not included) and both settings could have damaging consequences if not used correctly.

  9. Allow viewers to rate dashboard/reports (feedback for creators)

    I personally struggle a lot of times trying to understand the relevance of a dashboard or how up-to-date it is. Especially in large organizations, there are a myriad of boards and it easy to get lost.

    Idea: Enable reviewers/visitors to rate dashboard based on relevance and information provided - similar to the GitHub star rating or Amazon product rating.

    In short: A feedback system for the creator.

  10. Search Box in Workspace Pane for New User Interface

    There should be a search box in the Switch Workspaces navigation pane for the new user interface. For admin users like myself that have a lot of workspaces this would help.

  12. Make PowerBI simple: PowerBI desktop should work without DAX for casual users

    Transform vs Modelling
    The Transform capability is great, because i can do everything I need with the UI. This is not the case with Modelling.

    Modelling
    Having used PowerBI Desktop on many datasets, I found that it should be made simpler for non DAX experts.A UI based interface including some "AI" Assisted intelligence could easily achieve the below and make the product reach a new category of users.
    1. Matrix and Table visuals

    • Key features such as Column renaming, Cumulative values, Comparisons Year on Year etc. are missing and require quite a bit of DAX fiddling. I know that

  13. Many Ideas: Export/Connect Table & Matrix to Excel in Visualization Format; Pre-Built Report Templates; Data Source Compatibility

    While you guys have made great strides in allowing tables to be exported in their summarized view form, there are still some very impactful and easy-to-implement ideas that need to be executed.

    I'm working on getting my entire company to adopt Power BI as the sole reporting system; however almost every single employee will always need to have some of their reports/data in excel. Currently they are exporting data from our ERP, then building in excel (where they can then further manipulate/ analyze/ merge/ utilize their data). While I have recreated (and optimized/automated) many of their reports in Power BI,…

  14. Allow users to still get to their data after 6 months.

    Support hasn't been able to figure out why my company email as account sign in no longer works after using the desktop and powerbi.com site for over 6 months. It would be really beneficial if customers could trust that they can still get to their data after signing up for Power BI service. That way they can do their job of analyzing data using this tool. Seems like this "feature" would really help in user adoption.

  15. Need ability to direct users to corporate links for info, training, support

    Corporations need to be able to redirect their users to corporate links for Power BI info, training and support.

    The Power BI Admin should have the ability to specify URLs to direct their Power BI users to corporate resources (URLs) for:

    a.  Training
    
    b. Support
    c. General guidance and info

    These links should be easily distinguished from the Power BI public support, training and portals. The Power BI Admin should be able to set:

    a.  Show tenant specific links only
    
    b. Show both tenant specific and Power BI public

    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!

  17. Certify content packs

    We need the ability to certify content packs for us in large corporations.

    This feature is key for ensuring employees in the company know what data/sources/content is the right one to use.

  18. Enable scheduling for subscription on PBI Reports

    Lately, users have been given the ability to subscribe to any PBI report of their choice. With the 2018 Oct update, it will also be possible to subscribe others, which is already of great use. However, it isn't possible to adapt the frequency on which users receive an update of their subscribed to PBI report as this is default set at source refresh. Especially for live connections, it would be very helpful to manage the schedule on which PBI reports will be distributed to their subscribers.

  19. Powerpoint export template and User's selection of views

    There have been a few suggestions or ideas, to have an ability to change the powerpoint template.

    I would also suggest the ability to (multi) select one or more views from the Power BI dashboard or reports, and then exporting them to Powerpoint.
    We are creating series of reports and dashboards, meant not only for different user groups but also aimed at different processes or different business objectives. Exporting all of them to powerpoint may not offer much utility.
    If the user can check or tick off the views he/she wants to export, depending on the nature of business objective…
