  1. Bank of America

    Please create a wizard data source connection to Bank of America online. Along with other financial data from Quickbooks, it would be nice to be able to view current account balances and monthly credits/debits.

  5. Data communication with SQL Azure from POWER BI

    Now we have an option of connecting to sql azure from Office 2013 Excel sheet.We can use Power Query or Power Pivot to create models in excel but if we can have an option to connect sql azure from POWER BI SAAS based application like we are connecting to SALESFORCE to get real time data then it will be really helpful.I know there are number of configurations required to connect sql azure,but i guess it can be done by MICROSOFT to pull a data source and pinning the reports in dashboard.

    under review  ·  Miguel.Llopis responded

    As you point out, currently you can use Power Query or the Power BI Designer to author reports based on SQL Azure data sources. You can then publish these reports to the Power BI Service and refresh them, create dashboards on top, etc.

    We’re considering improving this in the future to also enable “live connections” to the data source, without the need to import data from them as happens today.

  8. Allow refresh data in power bi preview for excel files with datamodel in power pivot connected to other excel files

    I have an excel file where I built a data model in power pivot with connections to other files excel that contain my data. Actually in this situation, "schedule refresh" and "refresh now" don't work.

  17. NoSQL - CouchDB ( Cloudant, IRISCouch, etc) Datasources

    It would be nice to connect to the cloud based nosql data stores like IBM Cloudant or IRISCouch, etc. IBM already has a dashboard and allows you to create a warehouse but I highly doubt that it is going to match any PowerBI capabilities.

  18. Socrata

    Lots of governments use Socrata to post open data. Connecting PowerBI to Socrata would offer a large installed base of live datasets. Their service is OData compatible, and works well.
