  1. "Edit in Power BI Desktop" for IE11

    An issue has been identified with the latest version of the Power BI Report Server (October 2017). When choosing to "Edit in Power BI Desktop" from the Report Server, if the path / file name as a space then it errors out in IE11, but works fine in Chrome.

    Please fix for the next release.

  2. Subscription start time button for admins

    We are having issues with subscriptions having contention with other subscription run times. It would be nice to have an option to get a list of all of the subscriptions with the subscription name and time the report runs.

  3. SCOM Management Pack for Power BI Report Server

    We moved from Reporting Services to Power BI Report Server and missing the SCOM Management Pack to observe this important service. Specially in large Enterprises it's important that the SCOM package is available. I guess the difference between the active package should not be so huge.
    Please focussing to observing, not performance indicators.

  4. basic authentication

    Support basic authentication for access to published reports on the report server. Apparently, this functionality isn't supported, but we require this functionality at our hospital in order to move ahead with adopting PowerBI instead of Tableau.

    I originally inquired about this feature in the article at http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Report-Server/Issues-with-Power-BI-report-server-and-Basic-Authentication/m-p/336030#M3324

  6. Add a quicker way to do Refresh Now

    I have a number of powerbi dashboards on report server and I want to do more adhoc data refreshes. This can be done with Refresh Now on any of the schedules, but it takes many clicks to get to this.

    It would be also good to see when the refresh now has finished without having to keep refreshing the schedule page.

  13. Scrolling Capability for Filters Tab on Web Interface of Power BI Report Server

    In the web version of the Power BI Report Server (on-premise) solution, the filter tab does not allow for scrolling. When there are more than a few filters added or when the filters are expanded on a small screen, the rest of the filters get pushed off the screen, making them inaccessible since there is no scrolling capability.

    Scrolling of the filters must be implemented for the filters tab to be useable for more than a few filters on the web version of Power BI Report Server. This seems more like a bug rather than a new feature request.

  14. Usage Metrics in Report Server

    I would like to have this functionality available for the On Premises Report Server.

    The usage Metrics look ideal to have visibility of our uptake, and also maintain access logs. (Although for the last - I have voted to increase the retention of usage to >90 days in a separate feedback...)

  16. Ability to add shortcuts to online reports in Power BI Report Server

    We have a number of Power BI reports published either to our on-premises report server, or to Power BI Web. It would be great if we could publish shortcuts to the web reports in the Report Server portal so that users only had to go to one location. This would allow them to easily search for a report across all the reports (they have access to) published either on-prem or to the web.

  17. Power BI Report Server view Office Docs browser

    In the August 2017 preview support was added to view Excel files in the browser with the addition of Office Online Server. Now that we have that ability why are we being limited to just Excel. I would like to be able to view Word, PowerPoint, etc. In the browser and not just have to download them. Thanks.

    Thanks for submitting this idea, Dan!

    We’d love to hear more about how people imagine they’d use this feature. What types of Word documents or PowerPoint presentations would you want to store in Power BI Report Server rather than in more general-purpose document storage (SharePoint, OneDrive, file share, etc.)? Comment below!

  18. Power bi Report Server shortcut features

    Recently I have been using Power bi Report Server ,and I have a question :

  19. Make Phone Layout available in web browser

    As of the August 2017 Preview of Power BI Report Server, the Phone Layout is only available for consumption in the Power BI Mobile app. I would like to see .pbix reports behave like .rsmobile reports, and adjust to the appropriate layout based on the user's screen width within a web browser.

  20. Power BI Server user profiles

    I want the possibility that a user can save their own dashboard settings / filters or remove tables / graphs from a dashboard. For example if the selected one time only their own department and Power BI server saves this, the next time they open the dashboard it is filtered on the department selected earlier.
