  1. Subscription for Power BI reports from Report Server

    I know this idea was recently (April 2019) shot down by Microsoft, even with over 2,000 votes in favor of it, but I'm bringing it up again. The simple fact is, we are bound by regulations that keep us from using the cloud service, so the on-premise Power BI Report Server is our only option for widespread report distribution. Paginated reports on PBIRS can be subscribed to, which makes the inability to add Power BI reports to subscriptions even more frustrating. This lack of support severely limits our ability to grow acceptance for the platform. I ask that you please…

  5. Print Full report from power Bi server

    Would like the option to be able to print the "full" report (every page) from power BI report server instead of only having the option "print current page".

  6. R Script in Power BI Report Server

    Enable R Script in Power BI Report Server - In the manufacturing environment quality tools are essential, specific S.P.C. (Statistical Process Control). So, for example Quality Control Charts library help us with statistical data analysis in Power BI Desktop, but in Report Services R Script is not enabled. This is an incredible opportunity to delivery assertive information to data customers make their quick decisions based on Power BI RS. In the other post R Visual is not planned, but think fondly in this possibility!

  8. Report Server is your weakness - Gartner

    Even the Gartner report is calling you out Microsoft, stop treating your On Prim Enterprise customer like second class citizens.
    This are not small Gaps, they are huge gaps. Granted we don't expect all the Cloud features to be available, but your still missing allot of basic features in PowerBI Report Server.

    ....
    On-premises version: Compared with the Power BI Pro cloud service, Microsoft’s on-premises offering has significant functional gaps, including dashboards, streaming analytics, prebuilt content, natural language Q&A, augmentation (what Microsoft calls Quick Insights) and alerting. None of these functions are supported in Power BI Report Server.

  10. Export the exact display to Excel like SSRS

    We thought that the release of January 2020 Power BI Report Server Export to excel would include the same export functionality as SSRS but it only seems to be able to export what you filter as the "extra" functionality.

    We would like to export the exact same report display (template, text, images etc) with totals and subtotals, etc. "What you see is what you get". SSRS is doing a better job in this regards.

  12. Add approval flow to the Power BI Report Server

    In order to publish our reports to the correct app on the Report Server, we need to get approval from the person or team that has requested the report. I would like to use an approval flow, like the Request Sign-off in SharePoint, for the Power BI Report. This would help us document approval of the report for Validation. It would also show others in our organization that the report has been approved in the details.

  15. Add an interface in Power BI Reports for browsing shared datasets on the Report Server.

    A current capability we use in Power BI Reports on our Power BI Report Server is consuming Shared Datasets that are already on the server. We should have a "Shared Dataset" connector option in Power BI Optimized for Report Server that helps users identify which Shared Dataset are available on the server and the parameters(if any) are required to use the shared dataset. This would be a similar capability that exists in Report Builder when adding shared datasets.

    This could be a simple UI that ultimately results in an OData source using the PBI REST API. This would simplify adding…

  16. Publish Power BI Dataset in Report Server

    When publishing a report in Power BI Report Server, allow an option to select:
    - Do you also want the dataset to be deployed?

    This would work in the same way as Power BI Service datasets and reports. No need for dashboards.
    This way multiple Power BI reports in Report Server can be built from the same common dataset.

  17. Capability to save the configured Filter Settings in PowerBI Report Server Reports

    There are different users which use our reports on a PowerBi Report Server. They also use different values for the filters in the report. When they start the report the values of the report developer are applied to the report, which are, in most cases, not the values the users need.
    If Report Server was able to save the parameters in the form of favorites, the user experience would be improved and the user would be able to see faster the Information they need.

  18. Allow author of power bi report to specify a default page

    Allowing the author or authors to specify a default page for the report will make it so that when the report is updated or changed, the person making the update does not have to remember to select the "default" page before saving and publishing. This will save a ton of headache from many end users wondering why their "default" page changed on them after making an adjustment to the report.

  20. Make Power BI tab in MS Teams also available for Power BI Report Server

    Make Power BI tab in MS Teams also available for Power BI Report Server. Currently, this is limited to Power BI Service. It would be greatly appreciated if it was also available for Report Server.
