  1. Look at Domo

    Please look at the features of what Domo has. That was an awesome product they put together. Especially being able to create a store and collobarate with users.

    Quality of dashboard and functionality are of very high quality and have a lasting impression and keep the product ahead of others

  6. Unmapped Geographic Names

    There should be a mechanism by which powerview tells me how many of my geographical names are not mapped. I should be able to see such names also.

  8. Make hierarchical slicer work on horizontal slicers

    I'm very excited about the new hierarchical slicer. It would be very nice if these would also work on horizontal slicers, as I often use horizontal slicers.

  12. Drag select of table values with total

    In Tableau, you can simply drag the mouse over multiple values that would like to select in a table, and the subtotal of the highlighted items is provided in a tooltip-like box. Need this feature in Power BI.

  13. mock up mode to wireframe reports

    I wish there was a "mock-up" mode in Power BI where myself or a report requester could mock-up the report layout using the base visualizations. These would appear as place holders that could be resized only and allow for text boxes to make comments and place titles.

  15. Visual interaction option not filtering any other visuals as a default

    I often need to add a new visual, which should only filter one or two of all the many visuals existing in report page. In this case it is painful to go through all the other visuals to remove the interaction. It would be good to have a visual level option for not interact with anything as a default and then add only those interactions needed.

  16. Matrix: Hide Expand icon when no drill down data for item

    I like the expand/collapse buttons in a Matrix. But if a line has no values to drill down to it would be nice if you hide or remove the expand icon from that one line only. It confuses people as they think there are values to expand to. And if you hit the button all it does is blank out the values for that line and bold everything else in the matrix.

  17. Add a shortcut to Refresh in New Look

    Some of our users work with Direct Query reports and have to refresh 100's of times a day. That shortcut was very handy in the old UI.

  19. Edit data model in Code View like Visual Studio Data Tools

    When editing a Tabular Model for SSAS/AAS with VSDT, we can choose the code view (JSON). For the initiated, editing through the code view is much faster than with the UI counterpart. Since PBI runs on top of a local Analysis Services instance, it should be possible to edit a data model directly in Code View as well. This would enable porting back from SSAS/AAS models to Power BI at a time when, quite frankly, modeling in Power BI is all around more flexible and resourceful.

  20. We dont have alternate formatting feature for columns. To differentiate between can we have alternate column feature

    I have "Customer Type" in values field and MTD, QTD, YTD in values

    Can I change another color for "Customer type" so that I should be able to see "Customer Type", "NewCustomer", "ExistingCustomer" in different color.
