  1. Formulas and functions

    In PowerBI/DAX you need to type out all…

    In Excel you can search/select a formula and then simply add/insert/modify the details (cell, columns, numbers etc.) in a submenu. This is much nicer than typing [,:;( in a specific order (DAX) which is too difficult to understand for everyone.

    If formulas/functions can be entered like in Excel, will be loved by many people I assume.

  2. Reducing the risk of publishing unfiltered data to AAD B2B external users

    I have built a two nearly identical reports. One is unfiltered for an internal audience, and the other is RLS-filtered for an external (AAD B2B) audience.

    To publish externally, I have a separate PBIX file with RLS that I publish to a separate workspace that I then publish to an App shared externally with a security group in AAD B2B.

    However, it is possible that by mistake, I could publish an internal report to the workspace shared with external users.

    It would be great to:
    1. Detect and flag if a workspace content is being shared externally with individuals or…

  3. Change font for tile or improve security level of PBI online

    Currently Cross Site Scripting (CSS) is needed to display the font of tiles' options icon correctly in Internet Explorer 11 (which most of our customers use). Since CSS is blocked, the options icon of tiles is displayed as chinese signs.
    The font should be loaded via Script e.g. instead of via CSS.

  4. 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.

  5. Right clicking a standard visual should display a link to its Microsoft description page

    In teaching new users about visuals, I often find myself sharing link after link to explain how something works. Users are hesitant to try things at first. It would be great if right clicking the standard visualizations showed links to the Microsoft page associated with it

    Making it simple to see what they do will help me to demystify visualizations.

  6. 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
    • Not realised the reports have multiple tabs
    • Not realised they can drill through from the dashboard to reports
    • Don’t know about the “drill down” functionality
    • Struggle with filters
    • Won’t realise they can now drill through
    • Don’t know they…

  10. Provide sample pbix files for newly released key features

    The key features are great but sometimes it is hard to create a sample report in power bi to showcase the feature. It would be helpful to have the files being used in the videos or sample pbix to test and showcase the features.

  11. Enable bookmarking of dropped pins & drivetimes in ArcGIS Maps

    If a user wants to drop a pin for the attention of a colleague, is there a way of sharing the report with pins similar to the bookmark function?

    We want to use the map for site analysis and enable end users to share their analysis and proposal easily

  14. Allow Admins to subscribe users to a dashboard/report

    It would be nice for the creator of reports to be able to create user subscriptions in their organizations (instead of relying on users to subscribe). I've added a lot of users to an app but still only have a small subset of users actually using it. I think it would help drive adoption of the tool (at least in my org).

  15. Mention someone in comment to send email/chat linking back to specific visual/bookmark

    It would be super helpful to be able to mention someone in a comment to send an email and/or Teams chat notification with a link back to the specific report visual/bookmark.

    Please also try and align this user experience with Excel and across Office 365.

  16. Can't sign up with my outlook.com work email address. Can't test, so won't recommend PowerBI to clients. Tableau instead. Your loss, sorry.

    Microsoft, lots of us solo preneurs drive adoption. Ridiculous that I can't sign up with my only work email address of outlook.com. No wonder my clients have never even heard of Power BI. I drive many Tableau implementations, and would have liked to compare with Power BI. If it's good, I'd recommend it. But I would never recommend or even mention something that I haven't tested end to end. Thus, Power BI will not even be in the conversation with my clients because I can't sign up for an account. Foolish, artificial barrier that ends up hurting you.

  17. Organizational Governance of User Capabilities and Content

    Administrators need a way to manage numerous key aspects of Power BI.
    Creating an App from a workspace and sharing that application to the entire organization is great. However, it requires all users to have access to Power BI. As much as we would like our users to use Power BI correctly without any centralized governance it is not practical.
    Users should be able to view apps/reports/dashboards shared with them but Administrators should be able to:
    1) Control who can create an artifact in Power BI (even within their "My Workspace")
    2) View and manage (delete, move, rename, etc) all…

  19. User Flow for Usage Reports

    I would like to know the user flow of each user using the report. Basically, to know in what sequence they use the report, to understand the story/questions the user is looking for.

    If you can provide the above at tile level instead of page level it would be mindblowing!!

  20. publish content packs and apps permission to apply to all apps

    it looks like there's a new tenant level setting "Publish Content Packs and Apps to the Entire Organization" - but it only works if the app is published to the entire organisation. Can you please make this apply to all apps, regardless of which groups (or not) they're published to? Most of my clients' apps are published to specific groups, which is probably the way more common use case.
