  1. Export to Powerpoint - Hide "Hidden" Pages

    Export to PowerPoint reveals "hidden" Pages, and the "hidden" pages contribute to the maximum of export limit of 15 pages. It would be great if:
    a) the hidden pages did not contribute to the maximum 15 pages
    b) the hidden pages were not revealed when exported to PowerPoint

  2. Paginated Reports: Drill-through and Actions

    Add drill-through and hyperlink actions to Paginated Reports on the Power BI Service. Reports should be able to link to details (e.g. images of invoices) and should be able to drill through to detail transaction reports.

    Subreports are also a feature needed to migrate off of our hybrid SSRS/ Power BI solution for Enterprise BI.

  4. Selecting slicer value clears all other slicer selections

    Allow one or both of the following:

    Allow a selection on a "master/main" slicer to clear selections on all other slicers. For example, selecting a value in a "Category" slicer would clear the selections in the "Subcategory" and "Sub subcategory" slicers.

    Allow a parent/child relationship between slicers such that changing the parent slicer selection automatically clears the child slicer selection

    When slicers have a hierarchical relationship (e.g. Category slicer, Subcategory slicer, Sub subcategory slicer, etc.), current behavior is confusing for users:

    If relationship cross filter direction is single, changing a parent selection filters the child slicers but leaves the previous…

  5. Report subscriptions with Row Level Security

    Allow report subscriptions for reports with row level security configured. That is useful in case you want to subscribe many users to a report but each user should only see data restricted by RLS

  6. Hide Filter Pane on specific pages

    The new Filter Pane is great! But we can only choose to hide/show on all pages. A lot of times it would be useful/better UX to not show the Filter Pane on specific pages (I.E. Menu Pages). Being able to hide/show the pane for users on a per page basis is a simple and elegant solution!

  7. Limit Data Export Functionality/Permissions

    I would like to limit the number of rows from my database that a user could export at any particular time. I don't want to block them fully, just make sure that someone with access cannot take the whole thing at once.

  11. Print entire content of a page, not just the visible portion.

    The visuals in many reports only show some of the information. It would helpful when printing the report to print the entries content of the visuals.

  12. Copy the list of report access from one report to another

    UI functionality to copy the list of users(with whom the reports are shared) from one report to another report. Helpful in scenarios where the multiple reports needs to be shared with the same set of users. A copy-paste/ select-apply functionality would be helpful for cases where the access list is huge. Avoids lot of manual work.

  15. Synchronised Drill Down across multiple charts with same hierarchy!

    Power BI desparately needs to support:

    Synchronised Drill down across multiple charts with the same hierarchy on the same page (or across the report)

    It is extremely annoying, if I have seveal graphs, to have to drill down or up on each of them individually. A feature that allows you to synchronise the drill down state selected charts would be make the user interface incredibly friendly!

  16. Using measures to dynamically fill in parts of text boxes

    It would be nice to be able to fill in parts of text boxes dynamically based on measures. Currently this is only possible with the card object, but this is very limited if you really want to include long texts. Also, the entire text then needs to be in a measure which is sub optimal.

    What would be a better solution is to add text to a text box with a variable in it that references the measure. For example:

    Lorem {{MEASURE1}} dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut…

  17. Allow Read-Access Users to Export Visual Data to Excel

    I am happy that users can export a visual's underlying data to an excel table. I noticed that this feature is not available for members who have only read-access to the report.

    While I do not want to provide them access to the whole underlying data set, I'd like for them to be able to export summarized data from visuals to excel.

    My Report users seem to be wasting a lot of time typing out numbers from visuals manually into Excel so they could perform some calculations with those numbers.

  18. Exclude links for subscriptions

    I would like to schedule reports pages to email out on a schedule, but not include links to the report or to manage subscriptions. I would like to be able to subscribe people outside of my organization who will not have access to my organization's Power BI instance.
