  1. Extend Lineage View

    Current Lineage links from source data to reports are great. Would be even more useful if the source datasets in each report could be added. Perhaps a tabular view: Report > Page Name > Data Tables > Source.

    I think this could leverage some of the in-built usage metric data

  2. Lock colors/colours to specific data categories

    Add this feature in the theme so that in all the visuals throughout the report your data categories the same predefined colors. For example you would want to link colors to these keywords in the json file. Now we need to manually chose the right color for each category and again for each visual.

  3. Add option to subtract two values in a Matrix

    To add an option to subtract the two rows in Power BI matrix.

    Explained: Can you please add an option to subtract the two rows in a matrix. We have other options like add, average, etc. But if you would just add a subtract option, it would be great.

  4. Insert a video to the background of a report

    It would be awesome to have the ability to insert a video (full screen mode) in the background of a report. Not an online video but a dowloaded file (.mp4 or .mov). We are currently displaying a Power BI report in a 5m x 2.5m screen and the home page needs to display a dinamic content (or else it will harm the screen). But aside this specific need, it would be awesome seeing dinamic visuals in the background with data displayed in the front layer!

  5. brackets around negative numbers

    Please include the ability to add brackets and conditional formatting to negative numbers for anything that isn't in just the format ($ currency). It's really annoying for everyone else in the world that doesn't just report in $....

  7. Usage Monitoring - Paginated Reports/Subscriptions

    As paginated reports become more & more robust within Power BI, the ability to track & monitor those reports should as well. When we think of tracking the performance of these reports we should adapt the metrics to monitor the subscriptions of these reports as well.

    Some valuable data points would be:

    Total number of Subscriptions per report (Provide details at the workspace level, even tenant level for tenant admins)

    Delivery insights (Was the subscription workflow successfully sent, idle, or failed)

    Subscription details (User details, and frequency of subscription)

  8. Single-click drillthrough

    The current method of using "drillthrough" is tedious and not obvious.

    I propose a new implementation of drillthrough: single-click. Instead of right-clicking on a row, table or visual and selecting form a context menu, let's have the ability to setup a row, table or visual as a single-click drillthrough.

  9. filters can be sorted in the filter pane but filter values can't for now

    Filters can be sorted in the filter pane but filter values can't. Would be very useful.

  10. 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.

  11. Ability to wrap text in button feature for button text visualization

    It would be great if we can text wrap lengthy button text. Sometimes for consistency with slicer we need to have same dimensional for button as slicer. Due to which button lengthy text isn't visible in button

  12. 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.

  13. Add conditional formatting of title to new decomposition tree visual

    I love the ability to conditional format visual titles. This is available in other visuals, but was not rolled out with the decomposition tree preview.

  14. Evaluator_Data_EV_Monthly_A

    I put in a request 3-4 weeks ago to have the pass rate added to the monthly EV report. It's an important piece of data that we all talk about and use. It is available in the monthly EV report for leaders, but not for the EVs. Can we please add the pass rate to the monthly EV data report like you already do for the leadership report? Thank you!

  16. drill through icon

    There is currently nothing that identifies if there is a drill through feature on a visual. Add an icon that would let the users of the visualizations know there is a drill through feature.

  17. Display number of rows resulted after applying filters in a tabular report

    Our users often have the need to export reports when in a tabular format. Very frequently, they see that the numbers seen on the services does not match what was downloaded, because the export has reached its limitation of 150K rows. This is a huge waste of time. It would be good to see the number of rows that result after applying filters, somewhere on the report header, so that the users can decide whether they want to export the results in excel or apply further filters to reduce the number of rows.

    Can I create a PowerPoint Masterslide to download a live PBI Report for a specific client? I have several clients and would like individual Masterslides for each.

  19. Bookmarks treated as pages in printing / pdf / ppt export

    Sometimes we use bookmarks to hide / show a group of visuals hence creating the illusion of a new page.
    While this is very cool and effective for online data navigation, it falls short when exporting the report to .ppt and pdf.

    It would be very useful if some bookmarks could be treated as real pages and the user could decide whether to export them or not.
