  1. Comments section to show Full Name of users instead of username in Power BI Server reports

    The comments section in Power BI Server reports displays username only. There is no way to change this to show Full Name of the users.
    It is difficult to find out who posted the comments by looking at the usernames.
    It will be very useful if this can be changed to display Full Name of the users posting the comments.

  2. webdav - folder browsing

    Being able to browse to the report server from Excel (and other tools) through the file open dialog (or indeed windows explorer) through webDAV would extend the usability of the Report server massively

  3. Security issue for PowerBI report display in Microsoft Edge

    This is an issue of displaying the published report on PowerBI report server in Microsoft Edge.

    I simply create a powerbi report with the desktop (released in Oct 2017) with Direct query to SQL Server database, then I publish it to the latest release of PowerBI Report Server (Oct, 2017). The database connection string was set as Windows Authentication and I configured the dedicated user name and password on the data source settings on report server portal.

    When I use Microsoft Edge the default browser to view the PowerBI report, it first pops up a window asking me to fill…

  5. Report Server send email alerts to specified users if threshold(s) is exceeded

    Not every user has the time to manually check reports to see if any KPIs have been met or exceeded. Alerts would help notify users immediately instead of waiting for them to check themselves. It would be nice if Desktop publishers could manage who received these alerts, or users could create their own alerts as well.

  11. Manual Refresh All Connections In Power BI Report Server

    It would be useful to be able to manually refresh all data connections in a browser rendered excel spreadsheet in Power BI Report Server. Sometimes you don't want an excel workbook to refresh on load. You can currently do this with SharePoint which just uses OOS the same as PBIRS under the hood, so this would should be easy for you guys...

  12. ReportServer database zero downtime failover

    We have improved the uptime of the reportserver database by putting this into an availability group.

    However there is downtime for users when failing between availability group replicas. Reporting services generates a 500 error during failover. It would be nice if retries were programmed in so we dont have to arrange downtime when we failover the always on availability group.

  13. report alert based on time trigger or event based trigger than just Data refresh based.

    We need a functionality that allows users who subscribe to reports to be able to receive a report at a user set time or scheduled based on time or other triggering events and not when data refreshes

  14. New column in portal

    Nice to have in Power BI RS web portal: column with Last run date/time when data refresh completed
    In that case we can briefly notice when model is refreshed or not.

  16. Really love Power BI Desktop and Power BI Server (on site). .

    It is sorely missing email to self or a distribution list. Even in August 2018 edition.
    Was strongly counting on it.
    I do see a thing called Subscriptions, trying to make sense of that in Power BI Server August 2018 or March 2018 versions.

  20. report server gateway

    Report Server to support custom connectors or enterprise gateway-custom connectors

    The new preview feature of custom connectors (https://github.com/Microsoft/DataConnectors) allows the Power BI desktop and gateway apps to consume data from custom connectors. It would be powerful to extend these additional data sources to the on prem report server as well. This could be done by supporting the custom connectors directly or perhaps by supporting the gateways which would then support the custom connectors. DirectQuery is important in this scenario.
