  1. Perfomance Enhancement

    I find that it takes way too long to extract data from Analysis Services.

  3. Publish customized charts/dashboards to an out-of-the-box connector for your organization

    We need a mechanism that enables an organization to customize the out-of-the-box reports/dashboards that come with the out-of-the-box connector to distribute to their organization/division users.

    For example, we want to customize the charts & dashboard that come with the Dynamics CRM connector to match the customizations we have in our CRM instance.

  4. AccKnowledge by M3

    Hi

    Our company of 6 hotels uses a financial reporting software called AccKnowledge by M3
    http://www.m3as.com/accounting/

    Would be great to see Microsoft Power BI connect to this

    Right now we pull reports, export to Excel and then spend a lot of time reformatting the excel spreadsheet to a PowerPivot format

    Thanks!

  5. More options for authentication for automatic refresh

    More options for supported authentication methods for automatic refreshes. Would be nice if all sources supported Windows authentication.

  6. The relationships of all the tables in power query should stay when changing the database connection.

    The relationships of all the tables in power query should stay when changing the database connection. Today, when I try to use existing workbook to connect to other azure db, as soon as I change the connection, all the relationships are gone. It took me half of day to rest all the connections since I have more than 50 DIM and FACT tables.

  8. Add Serona as a data source

    Add the Serona RaaS platform as a data source. This would allow some interesting mining of RaaS data.

  9. Access to Excel powerpivot model to be able to edit/modify model without rebuilding dashboard/reports

    Need a page with my uploaded Excel models (or other data sources) where I can download, edit, and re-upload them and refresh the data behind them.

  11. Silverback Learning MilePost

    Milepost is a data warehouse for k-12 school districts and would be a great data source to be able to create reports and dashboards from.

  12. TurboTax

    We will soon have a QuickBooks connector, why not TurboTax as well? Would be great to pull in TurboTax Data and build a dashboard similar to the QuickBooks one in progress to show income, deductions and expenditures, perhaps comparing income/taxes age/geo for your zip code (from public data). Why? This would be a great way to drive scaled awareness and adoption of Power BI.

  14. Details on when Power BI features are available

    After setting up a data source there is no details available on when it has been indexed for natural language processing or other Power BI features that take a moment to setup.

  19. Allow data.gov connections

    Data.gov is a source we go to often to find healthcare or other government related information. Would be nice if this was an option with several sources listed.
