  1. 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.

  2. 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)

  3. 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.

  4. Bing map (layers)

    With Report server we are limited to using Bing Maps only for Power BI. At a minimal at least allow one additional layer to Bing maps so territories and sales can be plotted, all basic BI mapping do this. Don't make force people use another 3rd party service for something that should be out of the box standard set of tools. I know this been discussed so much with the power BI team. This topic will never fully go away until you do the right thing.

  5. 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' .

  6. Power BI Report Server Auto Refresh

    Add a setting on power BI report server to enable report to auto refresh and display fullscreen.

  7. Ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself

    My organization use (PBIRS) but it has huge data and it's the effect on our performance.
    It would be great; if you can add the ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself. In this mount, it's working only by change values from the toolbar edit parameter.

  8. 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

  9. Dynamically set slicer to show data related to current user login (without RLS)

    Set slicer dynamically to show data related to current user login without RLS - later can change slicer to view other data as well?

    Ex: If Bob logged to Power BI server - by default to his selection data displayed. Later her can change the filter to see everyone.

  12. Custom Format for Scheduled Automated e-Mail Triggers

    Hi,

    Custom Formats should be made available when we trigger Automated e-mail Triggers.

    A few features like this is available in Power BI Robots (why cant we have these made available in Power BI mainstream too?)

    Regards,
    Vignesh Raja

  13. Download refreshed report from Report Server

    For a report stored on the Power BI Report Server that is refreshed automatically, when the PBIX file is downloaded the original is provided. Provide the report with the up-to-date data instead.

  17. PowerBI Report Server MFA authentication

    It would be better if PowerBI Report Server has the ability to authenticate users with MFA.

    Currently, Power BI Report Server for Mobile Reports has the ability to authenticate users on ADFS but the support for ADFS it could be expensive if you implement it using the best practices.

    It could be a great feature if the Report Server could use AAD. Because some clients have MFA in their AAD; so, it will bring more security and will save money when the Microsoft´s clients have Azure AD with MFA.

    Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/consumer/mobile/mobile-oauth-ssrs

  19. Power BI Report Server does not send all queries by Direct Query as Expected

    Issue Description:
    We created a PBI report with a slicer and table in the report. The report is using direct query mode when connecting to data source. If the data in the backend data source is changed and then when we change the slicer for an already loaded report, the latest data is not reflected.
    Steps to Repro the issue:
    Step 1: Use the below SQL script to create the tables and data in the data source.

    SQL Script:
    USE [TestDB1]
    GO
    /****** Object: Table [dbo].[FactSales] Script Date: 06/05/2019 15:43:42 ******/
    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS [dbo].[FactSales]
    GO
    /****** Object: Table…

  20. Security - Managing users

    When managing security you have to know the Username of the user you wish to add, not by User principle name or by Display name.
    Our company user name are a employee Id. So it's not possible to know by looking who has permissions. This makes it difficult to find a user without asking or do AD searches outside of Report Server. Please enhance the security users to show Display name, or by user principle name so it can more obvious who access is assigned, we try to use groups when we can. However there is away exceptions.
