  1. Allow Parameters to be saved in Dataflows

    At the moment, parameters cannot be created and saved in dataflows. Parameters are automatically converted to a table when saving the dataflow.

    Parameters are useful to easily change or update specific values in SQL queries.

  3. ODBC Data Sources in Dataflows

    Please add ODBC data source connectors for Dataflows. Many of our queries connect through ODBC drivers because direct access to the DB2 database is not allowed through the DB2 driver.

  5. Support for custom Power Query Functions in Dataflows

    We really need support for custom functions in Dataflows. This is a huge limitation to dataflows today.

  6. Enable saving of a dataflow even if a refresh has occured during editing

    If, during editing of a dataflow, a refresh is performed, it is not possible to save your changes, you have to close the editor and restart the editing.

    In the future, it would be preferable to either allow saving a changed dataflow even if it was refreshed, or disable refreshing during editing.
