  1. Human Blockchain - Real time Upwork/Freelancer/Air Tasker Project management

    Instead of leaping to AI we should be partitioning aspects of roles to people through automation. Gig, Chunk, Part, Specialisation, etc.

    For instance I'm good on phone, but slow at typing. I'm creative, but cannot code, I can see gaps, but miss the basics, I am pig picture and small minute picture.

    Let's get smarter with our collaboration and use Flow, BI, Sharepoint, VOIP, Bitcoin, Delve etc to create a true global assembly line of idea, app, BI, efficiencies program to wipe all of the premature AGI gold diggers off the planet. Through developing a beautifully succinct model and including…

  2. Add optional input parameters in Power BI Service

    You may need to create optional input parameters in your custom connector. For instance, when you want to offer two connection modes: DSN and connection string. Each method uses different parameters, therefore you have to display inputs to cover the needs of these two methods.

    Optional input parameters are not shown in the form when setting up the connector via a Gateway in Power BI Service.

  3. Snowflake connector should not require On-Premises gateway

    Connecting to snowflake is great in Development.
    It did require a download of the ODBC connector. Is there a way, that we could have this baked in when publishing the report, otherwise I need to do this locally and then publish, or establish an On-Prem gateway.

    I would really love if Snowflake connections did not require an On-Premises gateway

  5. Adobe Analytics Connector Supported in Power BI Service

    When I go to my report's Dataset in Power BI Service, I can see "AdobeAnalytics" listed as a Data Source.

    When I click "Edit credentials", the Authentication Method drop-down is empty and clicking sign-in just returns the error "Failed to update data source credentials".

    Please enable refreshing reports using Adobe Analytics from within the service. Thank you.

  6. SAP Business Warehouse connector include SAP router string

    My organisation only allows connectivity to the SAP BW system (or any SAP system) using the SAP router string. It would be beneficial to allow this type of connectivity rather than just providing the application server.

  7. Show Custom Documentation for M Functions

    It would be really useful to have a way to show custom Meta/Documentation records in the display along with the default ones (Name, Description, LongDescription, Examples). For example, it would be nice to display the author and the date of the last update to the function.

  8. Azure tables support with SAS tokens

    Please add an ability to connect to an Azure Table with SAS token instead of an account key. This is a must have feature in cases where we want visualization for elements for an already existing storage account but don't want to add access to the whole.

  14. Forced selection for slicers

    It would be lovely to have the ability to have slicers force a selection. There are some circumstances where aggregating over all categories does not make sense, so it would be great to be able to remove the 'no selection'/'All' option on slicers. Currently a workaround is to use the Chiclet slicer which does have this capability, however it would be great to combine the different formats like list/dropdown from the slicer visual with this function.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.
