  3. Connector for SQLite

    SQLite is one of the most used Database Management Systems in the World! I think it would be important to have a specific connector for SQLite, especially since I had problems trying to connect Power BI to SQLite via ODBC.

  4. Slicer option to show value for items not selected

    When you click a selection on a slicer it shows everything related the selection. I propose another option that shows everything not related to the selected item. As an example if you had a slicer for all salesmen. If you select one salesman currently it will show you all the sales related to that person. My suggestion would allow you to insert another table with all the sales make but everyone else.

  6. Live/DirectQuery Web Connector

    The Web connector has a lot of nice scraping functionality behind it, but when using it with a REST API, it becomes less useful. Now with the addition of composite models, it would be AWESOME to allow a web API to dynamically fetch results based on filters from another table (an imported data source for slicers, etc). This would really open up a host of possibilities with Power BI, as it could be used as a front-end for many more analytics that are API-based.

  9. Provide a connector to SQL Server extended log files

    Be able to read the .xel files directly into PowerBI so that we have a nice tool to work on the SQL Server log files.
    As it was possible before the older text format got depreciated.

  10. power bi access to files in a sub folder of o365

    Allow a user to connect Power BI to a specific sub-folder in o365 and pull the files from there into Power BI. I currently have a request where i am having to use the site, filter by a specific naming convention and then the sub-site so that i have the correct data being loaded in the report.

  11. Update PDF connector to retrieve form data from fillable PDF

    The preview PDF connector does not allow for form data to be extracted.
    It would be great if when it identifies that the pdf has form data fields it presents a list of avail fields, allows user to select and then retrieves the completed data in a column per field with each row representing each pdf selected as a table result. PDF forms also referred to as FDF, have seen solutions referencing R etc however those solutions are beyond what most want to be able to do simply and within the core powerbi.

  13. Please Open Source All Default Power BI Connectors

    Please open source all default Power BI M connectors!

    Aside from a few examples on Github, there's very few examples to learn from. I've developed several connectors and I still have no idea if I'm following best practice or not. Also, there's many features I've seen in current connectors that are not publicly available, e.g., radio buttons on user prompts.

  18. SharePoint Online Schedule Refresh

    Allow SharePoint Online connections in Power BI online to have a scheduled refresh. Currently, only manual refresh is allowed.
    This would allow easy data input to sharepoint and up-to-date output in BI online.
