  1. Have the Slicler visualization allow an enterable filter

    Lets say that there is a large dataset drilled down to the Zip Code level. Allow the slicer to enter a variable field to filter for, just like we can enter a value when filtering in Excel, or using the visualization options within Power BI. Incorporate it right into the report

  2. SSRS – LookUp, MultiLookUp and LookupSet Functions

    These beautiful features bring a lot of satisfaction to report writer and developers to marge values from two datasets. These functions are is playing a very handy role to combine data from two datasets in a single data region which was not possible in earlier versions of Reporting Services.

  4. Realign Tree Map Size after Cross Filtering

    Currently when we have tree map and some other chart, lets say column chart. So Tree map will have grouping size fixed according to initial data. If we click some column in Column chart, it can happen that a group in tree map may hold considerable data for that column. But its position remains fixed in whole tree map from start. My suggestion is to re align the tree map, (keeping the colors same) so that we can see order of how different groups stacked.

  5. Blend Report Builder with the Mobile Reporting Publisher in a unique user-friendly UX development interface

    This is not necessarily diretly PowerBI - but fixed reports and mobile reports can now be pinned to PowerBI, so this is relevant. The UX for Report Builder is still far from being the best experience, while the "datazen-based" UX of mobile reporting rocks. Wouldn't it be awsome if we could have a blend of the "datazen" UX with the power of report builder into a unique place to develop both fixed and mobile reports?

  6. Word Cloud (Custom Visual) - default to Stop Words = On and Default Stop Words = On

    • When a new visual is created, set Stop Words = On and Default Stop Words = On. That is what 99% of people will want

  7. Regroup Slicers in Hidden Menu

    Slicers are taking lots of precious space in a Report Page (especially if you have many).

    Instead of displaying them directly on the Report page, consider regrouping them in a separate Slicer Menu on the side of the Report that you can Hide / Unhide as needed

  8. BUG: Missing data labels with stacked columns/bar

    When we create a column or bar chart, I have noticed that not all data labels are shown if we want to split values based on a categorical variable.

    Here is a screenshot showing the bug in question: http://postimg.org/image/qwsbwib17/

    I think this bug also stresses the need for allowing callouts for data labels.

  9. latest refresh time

    I'd love to have the timestamp for the latest refresh back in the top right corner. Why they removed that is beyond me - it was a brilliant feature imho.

    Any status on this?

  10. Word Cloud (Custom Visual) - make it case-insensitive

    The Word Cloud Custom Visual seems to be case-sensitive, e.g. I see 3 entries for litigation / Litigation / LITIGATION. Please make it case-insensitive by default. Perhaps there should be an option, but I think most people expect case-insensitive.

  11. Two dimensions in a Report

    Hello community, I' am fairly new to PowerBI and have to prepare an urgent report..Can we have two dimensions in a chart along with a measure?

    For example, We need to show Region alongwith AccountName and Profit as measure. I tried doing this stuff but ended up getting a chart which is not presentable.
    To Summarize my requirement is to have a decent chart showing Region and AccountName as dimensions while profit as measure? Kindly help me on this

  12. Change legend colours radomly

    Sometimes a lot of data are listed in a legend. If you want to show each one with a color, you have to change it manualy. But when another user refresh the data, this change is lost. the Radom option of Data color would be great.

  13. Need graphs to be able to render more lines, areas, etc.

    'Too many values' error preventing meaningful use of the Stacked Area Graph... We have a 4 step process running each night. Each one of the steps is comprised of ~100 sub-steps. I would like to see their durations over time (date). Unfortunately, the graph only displays a handful of sub-steps w/o error. Not having all sub-steps included in the visual defeats the purpose of a stacked graph to see their contribution to the total time... bummer...

  14. Key in Credentials when publishing the dataset

    Hi, There is something which I have noticed. If I publish reports by signing in with my account , it remembers those credentials and will not ask credentials next time. This sounds to be cool. However , it is causing issues for us. We work on number of client projects and many times, clients give us powerBI.com credentials so that we publish to their account only. Now If I am working on multiple client accounts , I am unable to chose account to which I have to publish my reports. Since POwer BI stores the credential information, other clients data…

  15. Allow on-premises publishing to Sequel Server using SSRS from Desktop

    right now, only Pyramid Analytics can give Desktop users this on-premises publishing capability... something in the MS ecosystem using currently existing infrastructure would be preferable

  20. Ability to share reports, not just dashboards

    Currently, we are only able to share to share a dashboard, that can get clicked through to get to a report. I would like to be able to share only the report without having to create a dashboard.
