  2. Reuse of models in power BI Report Server

    Cordial greetings
    One suggestion that I believe will help us in the company for which I work is the reuse of models in power BI Report Server, in the same way as the power BI service, since several users connect actaulmete to a single model created in Cognos, but With the migration of this technology we found that in Power BI Report Server we cannot reuse already created models
    Thank you for your attention
    Attentive to your comments.

  3. refresh time

    Allow for different refresh times other than 00 and 30. With multiple reports updating at the same minute cycle at our enterprise level, this causes timeouts and other performance issues.
    Should be able to schedule at any minute point of an hour, at a minimum 05. That way we can space out a set of reports at 1:05, 2:10, 3:15, 4:00, 5:45, etc.

  4. 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".

  5. Scheduled data refresh for custom connectors on Power BI Report Server

    Currently the scheduled data refresh on Power BI Report Server (on premise) is not supported for custom connectors. Also Direct Query mode is not available for them (except of ODBC connectors). Combination of these 2 limitations makes the custom connectors practically useless in runtime - the only way to refresh the data is to do it manually in PBI Desktop and to re-upload the report on the server.

    The idea is to allow custom connectors to have scheduled data refresh enabled / supported. It would be of great value to allow developers to create their own connectors and use it…

  8. Power BI Report Server September 2019 ISSUE with new Filter Pane (new & existing reports)

    The recent September 2019 release of Power BI Report Server and Power BI Desktop for Report Server has a new "Filter Pane" and additional features which look great, however the new pane does not render correctly when an existing report is re-published or a NEW report is created.
    Instead of displaying the filters, this text is displayed for both new & updated reports:
    "Pane Header Pane Body Current Filters: Industry: Financial Account Size: SMB".
    The model (a LIVE connection to Analysis Services) does not contain "Industry" or "Account Size" attributes.
    In addition, turning OFF this new feature (via Options >…

  9. Printing Report as PDF file ability not only for designer users but also for all browser users

    A published report can only be printed by the report server browser users, however saving the report as PDF document would be a lot userfriendly and practical

  10. Workspace Order by

    I am a member for a ton of workspaces however the one I primarily care about is sorted to the bottom of the list on the services site. It would be great if I can adjust the sort and manually pin workspaces to the very top of the list. Therefore when ever I navigate back to the service site, I do not have to scroll the entire list to get to my workspace.

  12. Full Screen Option in Power BI Report server

    It would be good to have full screen option, so that consumer can present in full screen. It good to have icon for that before setting icon in top right navigation same like Power BI Service. Right now I can do that using URL by appending ?rs:embed=true but my users and not technical enough to do that.

  13. Home (Preview) or Custom Landing Page

    It would be nice that there is an option to set the new Home or other page chosen by the users to be the default landing page when opens Power BI.

    By now when I sign in Power BI the first page I see is "My Workspace" or a featured dashboard. It would be better if the user can chose what to see first.

  14. Persistent Filters

    In our Report Server deployment the most frequent request by end users is: “Give me a prefiltered (eg. by departement) version of the standard report so that I will not have to spend time on filtrering” - the request is valid - but with more than 100 departments maintaining such a setup becomes extremely time consuming - therefore I suggest bringing Persistent Filters to Report Server - it would dramatically reduce the time needed to maintian a enterprise
    scale BI deployment - and would be a kikker-feature for Power BI Report Server (and align features beteeen cloud and on-prem)
    Filters…

  15. Auto-select slicer's value based on selection in another slicer

    The value of a slicer should get auto-selected dynamically based on the value selected in another slicer.

    For example, if I want to view all closed issues that were closed by Stakeholder A, I select 'Closed' from the 'Status' slicer. The 'Stakeholder' slicer, which was displaying all stakeholder names till now, should now automatically filter to 'Stakeholder A' .

  17. Power BI Report Server needs a "View in Desktop" option

    We have "offical" reports that we don't want general users to be able to overwrite, but these reports are using live connections back to a SSAS cube so we are more than happy to let them open the report in Desktop and make their own version which they could then save back to My Reports or some other folder where they have write access

  18. Power BI Report Server Auto Refresh

    Add a setting on power BI report server to enable report to auto refresh and display fullscreen.
    As well as a setting to hide all tool bars so that extensions do not need to be added into url.
