  1. Keep/Allow Hierarchy Filters (in Excel) in Direct Query Mode

    When accessing power-bi data with excel, existing hierarchy filters are also usable in Excel. This does apply for manual created hierarchy filters as well as with automated hierarchy filters (e.g. in Dates).

    However this feature is not working as soon as you have at least one table with direct query mode. In this case all hierarchy filters are gone.
    Therefore the request is, that also in direct query mode the hierarchy filters should be available (at least for the tables still in import mode).

    Besides this current behaviour should be documented.

  2. Support "Resource based quota" in Google Analytics connector to reduce sampling

    A big problem with working with Google Analytics in Power BI is sampling.

    To reduce this issue the reporting API v4 allows the use of "resource based quota".

    This allow for no sampling up to 100M session, wereas Analytics 360 allows for only 1M sessions and Analytics standard allows for 500k sessions.

  3. MSSQL STORED PROCEDURE ile Doğrudan Veri Çekilsin ve Rapor Düzenlenebilsin.

    MSSQL STORED PROCEDURE Sorgusu çekiyoruz. Fakat rapor düzenlemek için soruguyu kaydetmeye izin vermiyor.
    Ya da konuya bir çözüm üretirseniz bizi büyük bir yükten kurtarmış olursunuz. Ayrıca Power bi çok önemli bir özellik kazanmış olur. Saygılar.

  4. Load definitions from Business Glossary / other external source

    Definition tooltips for metrics, filters, etc should be able to be connected to an external source of the definition. We have a wide range of reports reusing the same terms, and need to be able to centrally manage the definitions and then displaying them to users.
    Business Glossary in Data Catalog seems like it could be one way of integrating this, but support for other sources would also be interesting.

  5. Year 7 data missing for primary schools

    Primary schools need to be able to view Year 7 students' growth data, trend, etc. Used to be able to view it in the old SMART Data program. Missing a significant piece of useful data at the moment.

  7. Oracle for human beings

    To develop a plug and play data source driver for Oracle.

    That's the main weekness to use Power BI as a professional data tool.

  9. Show data source of OneDrive / SharePoint files

    Display the file path of any data sources, including PBIX files, that are sourced from OneDrive or SharePoint and thus make use of hourly refresh (when enabled).

    Currently there is no way to determine the path. So when wanting to view (or if possible could it be changed?) there is no way of knowing.

    This is important when hosting a PBIX file on SP/OD and wanting to modify that same file.

  11. Alternative Refresh Time If Initial Refresh Fails

    For example, I have a refresh schedule enabled on a report.

    If that refresh fails, I want to set another time for Power BI to attempt the same refresh again (versus having to set up two refreshes)

  13. Datastore connections

    Power BI (demo) doesn't seem to want to connect to any datastores I use. ACT! (MSSQL), Foxpro or dBase tables, Excel. Nothing connects and therefore I am unable to evaluate the product for use. Is this by design?

  14. Ist es möglich Daten in Teams regelmäßig zu speichern und dann sofort im Power BI für Teams aktualisieren

    Csv Dateien sollen für Abstimmzwecke von verschiedenen Betriebsteilen mit unterschiedlichen Netzwerkgrundlagen an einer zentralen Stelle für alle sichtbar eingestellt werden und dann mit einer Anwendung an gleicher Stelle aufbereitet werden.
    Idee ist nun dafür Teams zu nehmen, darin die CSV Dateien regelmäßig erneuern zu lassen und mit Power BI einen Bericht zu erzeugen, der mögliche Fehler in den Beziehungen (Buchhalterische Forderungen und Verbindlichkeiten) zwischen den Betriebsteilen erkenne zu können.
    Die Daten sollen weltweit zugänglich sein, ohne die Grundlegenden Systeme verbinden zu müssen. Außerdem ist Teams für die notwendigen Abstimmungsrunden/Chats an Ort und Stelle der Daten und Auswertung bestens geeignet.

  17. Amazon Redshift Spectrum direct query support

    Currently we can import tables from Redshift Spectrum into Power BI, but when we choose Direct Query mode instead of Import mode Power BI throws errors (query folding errors).

  18. Header Based Excel (not position based) Import

    I noticed that if you have a current Excel file as a source and if you insert a column, your Power BI Dataset becomes unusable.

    Could you allow column insert or moving an existing column as long as the Header name in the Excel file remains the same?
