  1. Drill to details (view row-level data)

    Whenever I see an aggregated metric (e.g., $483,572 in sales) - in, say, a column in a chart or a cell in a matrix - I should be able not only to drill down to a next level of detail, but to "drill to details" - all the way down to the individual rows of data (e.g., the individual sales orders) that make up that value.

  2. export the dashboard view to formats like pdf, word, ppt slide

    You are creating a review (document) describing the landscape of sales in Poland and you would like to add some dashboards into this as a visual. ofcourse, I can creat the screenshot and add it but the image will work better.

  3. Set Email Alerts in the web interface

    It would be great to have a conditional alert system that would periodically send an email based on any metric. For example: The report updates everyday but only sends alert if Sales<Budget.

  6. Search functionality for slicer

    In slicer we need to scroll down to select from multiple values. It should have functionality like when user types/enters any value it should get auto populated and then user can select that value from slicer.

  10. Set Colors and Conditional Formatting in visuals

    Power BI's visualizations have colors assigned automatically. It should be possible to set a color when a value is reached (e.g. always show negative bars in red) or for a particular color in a legend (e.g. always show Microsoft datapoints as blue)

  12. Measures as Data Labels

    Currently the data Labels are just the values displayed in a graph, often it is required to have one or more measures as data labels to provide additional context to the data being display. Ex. If you have a bar graph showing sales for different regions yo u might want to have YoY% as a data label

  17. Add animated "Play" axis on the Bubble Chart

    The Play ability in a Bubble Chart is a great way of discovering and visualizing trends. The current manual way of interacting with the timeline is not really useful.

  18. Sorting on a Slicer

    Allow you to sort slicers alphabetically ascending or descending - currently their are no sorting options. Also, sorting based on another field in the same table would be really handy.

  19. Make filters that can apply across all pages in a report

    Currently you can set a filter that applies to an individual chart, or at a page/view level. You should also be able to make a filter apply across all the pages/views in a report.
