  1. Report server - Refresh Error Page

    Admin space showing all refresh failures on PBI Report Server. I would like a page on the Report Server where I can see all refresh failures on the server and an option to pick and choose which ones to run again. Today I have a paginated report with a subscription every day that lets me know which reports failed, but then have to go into the Management screen for each individual report to diagnose and re-run it.

  2. Report Server and RS desktop release documentation

    There is a great release history for desktop here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-latest-update-archive
    Similar documentation is needed for Report Server and also for RSDesktop. Having to dig for the information in blog posts and announcements is not user-friendly.

  3. Upload a modified dashboard without having to upload all the data again

    When I upload a dashboard to our premium space, I get asked if I want to upload the data too, since the same data is already present online. If I click on cancel, it doesn't upload my changes; if I click OK, I have to wait for my data to be uploaded. Why can't we simply upload changes to the dashboard itself without the data? When the data is big, it's quite a pain in the a** to wait after having modified a simple title, for example.

  4. Show the word Favourites (rather than Favorites) for UK users

    My Windows display language is set to English (United Kingdom) yet I see "Favorites" (the US spelling) in place of "Favourites" (the UK spelling) in Power BI Report Server (on premise) v15.0.1102.597

    If I change my Windows 10 preferred language to French and restart the browser (IE 11) I get "Favoris", which is as expected

    So it appears that "Favourites" has been misspelt somewhere

    Please can this be corrected

  7. Allow users to update data - Limited N times per X hour

    Every single user things the "refresh" button allows them to get the latest data off the data source. It's completely misleading but it has also setup a "desire" that they all want control over.

    It would be amazing if, at least on report server if not the service, we are able to allow users to update the data and limit each user (or global limit on report) by N number of refreshes in 24 hours (or X hours).

  9. Power BI Report server Tab or Page name in URL like Section parameter

    In case of multiple tabs in a report, we want to load specific tabs when a report is embed using Iframe. Right now rc:Section paramter does not work. We want a similar functionality.

  10. Display PBIX file size in report Server

    Since PBIX files have a maximum size, Report Server needs to be able to show what the file size is for a report so that as file size increases through data refreshes, we can know when a report is getting close to the maximum size and take appropriate action.

  13. Enhance Comments

    The comment section in the September Update 2019 for report server. Displays the username, any chance to display the AD Display name ? Also it would be nice to allow some rich edit text when writing the comment.

    This is the area I'm talking about.

  14. Possibility of hiding tabs dynamically in Power Bi Dashboard

    Possibility of hiding tabs dynamically in Power Bi Dashboard

    Current issue:
    Consider we have Vertical and Practice tabs in the dashboard. As per row level security we have granted access to practice members and want to hide Vertical tab to hide dynamically instead of showing it as blank values in vertical tab.

  16. Hide Upload Menu option

    In Report Server we have the upload menu option, need to have it as configurable as in production users should not be allowed to upload new reports and want them to go through lower environments.

  19. Administrative functionality to show general usage information

    1) In order to manage the report server it is good if it is possible to have a report(paginated) embedded in navigation so users can see if there have been some incident preventing update of PBI files with data from sources or just general usage metrics while still giving intuitive access to further drill down the folder hierachy.

    2) Would be good if it is possible to have general usage information for users on landing page of the report server (like how to create service ticket if something is wrong etc). Currently on possible to change logo, colors and name…
