  1. If a field contains a URI present it as a hyperlink so the user can follow it

    I have a dashboard which uses the Card report to list a set of results. Each result includes a JobUri which I'd like users to follow. While I can add the URI to the card it is presented as just text. Example: https://msit.powerbi.com/dashboards/abfa898c-325a-4fc7-a20c-df1193cc4ac7

  2. Copy/duplicate existing reports and dashboards

    Hello,

    It would be nice if we could duplicate existing report or dashboard in PowerBI. It would save some time when you create similar report to already existing.

  3. Publish Excel Services reports to Power BI

    Allow Excel Services reports to be published to the powerbi.com portal. This would enable people to go to a single place to find all their reports rather than having to find them across PowerBI and SharePoint / Office 365.

  5. When you have multiple measures on a graph (conditional formatting) you need to show both measures in the tool tip.

    The tool tips are great. However, if you use conditional formatting in charts, you have two measures that are active. Currently, only the one primary measure appears in the tool tip. Both should.

  7. Add the ability to remove filters or change the scope of a filter from page to chart (or the entire report).

    It is very easy to accidentally add multiple filters or get the scope wrong, and I don't see any way to change this other than starting over. This causes visual clutter. I don't just want to clear the filters, I want to remove the extra ones or fix the scope.

  8. Proper order of days

    When you choose to sort the days, it currently doesn't arrange according to the days of the week.

    It should be able to arrange things by Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday. In addition, on which day to start i.e. Tuesday - Monday instead of Monday - Sunday.

  9. Control whether a visual slices or highlights other visual

    Rather than cross-highlighting when you click on a datapoint, give us the option to have it filter other visuals!

  11. Excel-like Slicers

    Slicers like in Excel in order to highlight only the (cross-)filtered items. Associative analysis with the existing slicer functionality is not possible.

  12. Add functionality to "Edit Report" in the Browser

    As more data sources become directly accessible to build reports for in the browser (without toing through Power BI Designer or Excel), the browser "edit report" is getting far behind what Power BI Designer can do.

  13. Show the KPI in the new Power BI Report

    My report is reading from a tabular cube that has a KPI. I can't seem to show the traffic lights from the KPI in this report. Is this not available?

  14. For the treemap visualization, it would be nice to be able to turn off the legend for the "Group" item.

    There are cases where the treemap grouping by itself is all the visual that you need, and the legend simply adds clutter to the report. It would be nice to be able to turn that off in a chart option

  16. Allow clicking of URL data within PowerBI.

    We're using PowerBI for diagnostics work. We would like to be able to interact with the URL data in our tables (namely, by having URL data be clickable so that it opens up the appropriate location).

  17. Chart Axis

    It should be possible to be able to let chart axis start on zero, or decide the axis intervals. In many cases, using the lowest and highest value in an axis, shows big variances, but it's really not. example 5% vs 6% profit is not nescesarry bi difference, but if every numbers is between that intervall, the chart will be very "dramatic" instead of showing that you have a stabile profit.

  20. Sorting ability for reports in PowerBI.com

    Currently, there's no sorting mechanism for the reports in PowerBI.com. We need a mechanism to sort categories by their associated measure values.
