The composite modeling feature is excellent. Many to many relationships work exactly as expected now. Only problem is that its a preview feature. Can we expect this to become a standard feature rather than a preview feature in the October release?7 votes
I would like to be able to create an entity based off of a custom SQL Query instead of having to use the Power Query tools. The problem I am having is that one of the tables I am working with is too large and results in a timeout when Dataflows tries to bring it in. I think that a custom SQL Query will alleviate this issue by allowing me to prefilter my data before it comes into Dataflows.5 votes
Using the drill through feature is very elusive.
The business rule based on the current documentation suggest that as long your tables are properly linked you can take variable from a different table (i.e., Table) and have the dashboard direct to a different tab to "drill down" to.
However, there are some limitations which are still difficult to understand. I put in a ticket with tech support and they agreed with my assessment. Additional documentation includes:
Variable types drill through functionality can apply to

Power BI already has the capability to categorize Web URLs. This is very useful to make the URL launchable and have them displayed with a link icon.
Can we extend this to handle application URIs? For example, bingmaps:?cp=40.726966~-74.006076.1 vote
Allow creation of dataset in power bi app directly from the database bypassing the desktop application
One should be able to connect to databases like psql and mysql directly from the app.powerbi.com and create datasets.1 vote
Currently pictures and other objects can be used as bookmarks through "actions". It would be great if the user was able to add Tooltips to these objects to advise the user where clicking the link will take them.1 vote
I can connect Salesforce to Power BI and schedule a refresh too. But when I also connect an Excel file too, the schedule refresh for Salesforce is grayed out.
Why can't I schedule a data refresh for Salesforce but not when both Salesforce and Excel are connected?
Is there a workaround for this?
i had a website that had mysql as database where data is being stored. i am using powerbi dektop to capture the data from the mysql server to my powerbi desktop but each time i am trying to connect i am getting error .
Thanks in advance1 vote
If you have two different visuals with the same hierachy, it would be nice if you drill down one level on the 1st visual if the other visual would drill down to the same level.
For example, if you had a hierachy of product/size/item for both visuals and you went from product to size, on the 1st then the second visual should also go down to size instead of just showing one item from the product hiearchy1 vote
We use Teradata for one of our Enterprise Data Warehouses. We would really like to have an On-Prem Teradata Connector available in Dataflows2 votes
When working with dimensional model, we have fact and dimension tables. In a fact table we have role-playing dimensions, e.g. multiple dates for one fact. We need to be able to import a date table once and then duplicate it in the relationship or anywhere else so that we can add a separate relationship from this newly duplicated table to the fact table.1 vote
Would be great to have the option to refresh individual entities as an addition to the whole of the datapool. This is useful when some of the entities failed to refresh and other were successful.1 vote
Allow "certified datasources" Dataflows with certified entities to be rolled up for enterprise wide analytics
Allow, once the tagging system is complete for "certified datasources", certified entities to be rolled up for enterprise wide analytics without having to manually hook up individual entities together.
My company has many projects with different contract requirements, some of which require customer tools to be used. Being able allow the project the ability to ingest their own data using their unique tool on thier contract would be very helpful (datapools as they are now). Bringing those up automatically to the enterprise level would be even better.1 vote
