  1. Add explode options for Dounut chart and Pie chart

    There are many scenarios we need to add explode option for dounut and pie chart as requirements. This explode option was possible in other tools and scripting languages.

    Please implement this option for better visualization

  2. Add a report based on a shared dataset to an app, *without* being a member of the dataset workspace

    For example: a shared dataset resides in WorkspaceA (all users have the Build permission). Alice uses Power BI Desktop to connect to the dataset, and publishes her report to WorkspaceB. Alice is a member of WorkspaceB, but not WorkspaceA. The issue is that she cannot add her report to the app in WorkspaceB.

    But she should be able to! In our case, the reason we have WorkspaceB is so that "end users" like Alice can publish content, but for security reasons, they must not be members of WorkspaceA. So, please enable this?

  3. Allow proper printing of Dashboards and report pages

    The lay-out of printed dashboards and report pages is lost when you print the page. Proper printing functionality is still missing (may 2018). In my humble opinion this should be a priority.

  4. Report developers should have the ability to view reports as if they are a consumer

    With a Premium Capacity, Power BI (Pro license) Report Developers should be able to view the Power BI Online Service as if they are a consumer (with the 'free' license), with a toggle-setting to switch between modes. This will allow developers to ensure their reports and configurations work as expected for their end-users.

  6. Hierarchy Slicer Sync

    I tested the "Sync Slicers" it's a very good option but it doesn't work with Hierarchy Slicer, it will be very important to synchronize pages of report's with hierarchical slicers like Hierarchy Slicer.

  7. Dynamic axis title

    Add the possibility to have dynamic axis titles.
    Like it is now possible to do conditional formatting for the title of the visual. Or just allow for dragging a measure into the title of the axis. Depending on the selected unit of measurement you want the title of the Yaxis to change.

  8. Rotate text box

    Please add a basic feature with ability to rotate a text box. In many report I would like to use screen real estate effectively by having text vertically on the left allowing full height for visuals. All Office apps have this basic feature.

  9. Be able to pass parameter value specified in the URL to stored procedure

    Be able to pass parameter value specified in the URL to stored procedure

    Currently, Parameter value specified in the URL and pass its value to stored procedure is not possible in Power BI Report.
    Found lots of Similar ideas are already submitted. Please kindly consider to implement this feature, as SQL Server Reporting Services allows us to do so using URL access.

  11. Expand/Collapse pages in new look

    Please allow users to Collapse/Expand the Pages navigation pane in the new look on the service. This would apply to the new navigation for Apps as well.

  12. DAX Query Language Visual

    I see big value in creating a visual that can display the results of a DAX query. One way this could be deployed is a follows.
    * Add the new visual to the report canvas
    * Write a DAX query that returns a table (of course) and add this to the visual
    * The visual would respect any cross filtering coming from the report just like any other visual.

    This would give report writers very granular control to display records without having to use a table visual and a measure that triggers the display of the correct records.

    At the moment we don’t have any plans to implement this. It sounds like it’s mostly useful for learning/training? If there are other ‘production’ scenarios that you think it’d be useful, where a regular table/matrix wouldn’t work, please let us know in the comments!

  13. Navigation builder

    The new navigator builder is great, though limited.
    It lists all the pages of the underlying report at the same level, without distinction. Suggestions:
    1) allowing to reorganize the pages in sections and subsections, creating a hierarchy. This helps user navigating in reports with many pages.
    2) allowing authorising users or group of users to view single pages or single sections / subsections

  14. Ability to Disable option for user to export hidden tabs (PDF & PowerPoint)

    Can we please have the ability to REMOVE the option for the user to export hidden tabs. Maybe within a Report's Settings (or even tennant Admin Portal) have a setting for "Allow/disable users to export hidden tabs"

    The issue i'm facing is that a number of my reports have hidden tabs that contain either tooltips, drill-through pages or WIP pages and I hate the thought that users of my reports can see those pages if they choose to "include hidden pages' in an export to PDF or PowerPoint.

  15. Data driven subscription for Paginated Reports in Power BI

    As paginated reports are now part of Power BI premium, the option of have data driven subscription as in SSRS will be a must needed feature to complete migration to the Power BI world.

    Technically by getting the parameter values from a dataset table.

  16. Please convert the Phase reports

    The phase reports are so helpful to do targeted reviews, particularly with evals and negotiations. These reports allow you to target recently completed evals within the adjusters authority and target negotiations where they've gone stagnant or with small gaps. These types of targeted reviews help hone adjuster's skills by reviewing these together. It is difficult to do these targeted reviews without these reports and would love to see them converted.

  17. Enable Subscription Send After Any Successful Refresh

    Many people need to send out subscriptions multiple times in a single day. To have subscriptions sent out after a successful refresh (throughout the day), a person can either perform this manually, or schedule a refresh slightly earlier than a subscription. The second option enables automation, but the results are often unsatisfactory. Specifically, the refresh fails or hangs up, and the subscription goes out anyway. Enabling subscription send following any successful refresh would help automate this. Thank you for your time.

  18. Support for multilingual reports

    Even with the latest release of Power BI (September 2019) it's not possible to compile different languages into one .pbix file. Currently we're working around this issue by deploying one .pbix file per language, which means we have to clone the data model and maintain any change in each of these copies all the time.

    Power BI should support the creation of multlingual support in the same way as SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) currently does.

  19. Ability to control which reports have their report pages expanded in Apps

    Ability to control which reports have their report pages expanded in Apps
    Currently in the new navigation experience in Apps the first reports has its report pages expanded and visible, but any other reports in the App just show the report and the individual report pages are not visible. Can we have the functionality to control this, preferably for each report in the App but at a minimum so all the reports show the same either just report titles visible for all reports or all the report titles and reports pages visible.

  20. Synchronize scrolling between two graphs

    I have two graphs with the same time period along the x-axis and displaying the same attributes but with two measures. I would like to be able to synchronizes the horizontal scrolling so that as the user scrolls through time they can visually compare the two measures between the top and bottom graph.
