  1. Customize Legend/Data in graphs/maps/charts

    There should be the ability to customize the legend/data in a graph/map/chart/etc.:
    - Change the order (Sort A-Z, Z-A, programmed order, manual manipulation)
    - Order linked to several graphs and tables
    - Change name
    - Change data point
    - Link the colors and order from graph to graph
    - Number format ($#.##0.00; #####; 00000; 00,000; etc.)
    - Change font characteristics (font, bold, italicized, size, etc.)

  2. Better use of longitude and latitude in maps

    From our own experiences and comments we've found generally on the web, it appears that Power BI does now work correctly with longitude and latitude.

    Power BI should be able to take longitude, latitude, and a value as the only required inputs for a map. However, it requires a location and (as far as we can tell) completely ignores anything in the longitude and latitude fields. Indeed, if we enter both a longitude and latitude to a map already using locations, a working map stops working.

    Note that we have validated the accuracy of the longitude and latitude values, and…

    Hi everyone. You can turn on search for slicers by clicking the … in the top right of the visual and turning it on there.

    There is more that we’d like to do for slicers in general, and particularly around search (remembering search terms, building up tags of searched-for items etc.). Please keep voting on the other suggestions for these specific features (or creating new ones :))

    Thanks!

  6. Multiple colors for filled maps

    Enable multiple colors for filled maps (e.g. Red and Blue States). This will be especially important with the upcoming election.

  7. Power BI needs capability to support local data

    When a PowerBI dashboard is published to PowerBI.com using a static data (non refreshed cached data set) and online content, it still complains that a refresh cannot be executed because there is an on prem data resource. This error message should only be displayed if the refresh is set to ON for local/on prem data source and should not be displayed when trying to use the data as a static cache. Alternatively, Desktop needs to provide provision to create a copy paste data table from excel so that the source reference is purely local and static and does not need…

  8. Make chart size settable in pixels / printable units (in/cm)

    Make charts have a settable size (pixels/inches/centimeters) so that I can ensure each chart is exactly the same size.

  9. Improve data labels algorythms of showing

    Sometimes data labels are not shown on random areas of line charts even if there is space for them. It usually happens on first and last values of line and sometimes on upper side of chart. It is important to see the last date labels on charts specifically if it is the last period values(when x-axis is time or date formatted)

  12. Include Excel Workbooks in Content Pack

    When creating a content pack from a shared workspace, Excel workbooks cannot be included in the workbook (even if they are on the workspace OneDrive and loaded into the workspace. Users should be able to include Excel workbooks in a content pack.

  13. Improved Slicer

    It would be better if the Slicer Filter had the property so you click to replace a variable (rather than to include another variable).

    Then you could use ctrl to add and shift to select a range.

  14. "Universal Filter" for all report pages

    Currently we have option of two filters in report
    a. Visual filter for an object
    b. Page filter for full page

    Very importantly needed a third "Report Filter"- Universal wherein I can control all pages information (QlikSense does it very nicely).
    Since all visualization can't be fitted in one page, we distribute the same across different pages in report.
    If I want to know the performance of specific sales region or specific category, I have to filter every time I switch pages.
    This simple feature is actually the most powerful one if I select one Universal filter, and all pages…

  20. It would be useful if there was the option to collapse/expand all for the list of queries in the field sidebar

    We have a large list of queries, and it is inconvenient to manually collapse/expand each section every time we want to modify our reports.
