  1. Ability to add a secondary axis to a chart

    Right now all the charts supports only one y axis. There should be a support for secondary axis as well.

  2. Should be able to sort the value for axis or legend when showing in chart

    Say when there are three distinct values in the field of an Axis, like 12/20, 12/21, 12/22, we should be able if need to sort them in asc or desc when showing in the chart. Currently, they come out in a random order

  5. Ability to regenerate report tile

    When you create a report, eg connect to Excel with Power View you get a link to the report (tile) on the dashboard. If you delete that report tile or want that report tile on another dashboard there is no way I can see to recreate it.

  6. Undo / Redo button in browser & designer

    Unlimited redo's would be nice, but at least have a fixed number of undos.

    This helps with the prototyping process where you can confidently do a number of changes to see how something may look, and then back out if it doesn't work.

  7. The filter UI is clunky and difficult to use. Consider usability improvements.

  9. Collaboration tools for editting report

    Features for collaborating on the same report from multiple users. Currently only one person can edit a report and share it with co-workers. In order to merge the designer file we have to manual copy and paste a lot of queries.

  12. Canvas Size

    Can we have a dynamic canvas in reports (similar to VISIO's canvas)? Start with one page. If the user needs more space on a single view, then the canvas size expands automatically (both horizontally and vertically).

    (please also make the canvas size consistent between reading mode and edit mode. Currently, entering editing mode shrinks the canvas size horizontally)

  13. BUG: Complete loss of work while saving report

    I accidentally clicked on the "Retail Analysis Sample" dashboard (out of the box sample dashboard) and then clicked in my newly uploaded dataset and started building charts and then clicked Save. I immediately clicked on the page title "Microsoft Power BI Public Preview" while I barely saw a warning toast that said "Warning: This dashboard is read only, your changes will not be saved." and since I had already clicked the title the page navigated to the landing page and my work was lost.

    Repro
    1. Have a dataset ready to use.
    2. Click on the out of the box…

  14. Have the ability to hide legend header in charts

    Sometimes legend doesn't need a header; the series names are self-explanatory. Can we have an option to hide the legend header? Or customize it (so we can delete the header or change it to something more meaningful)?

  16. support no calc on numeric values

    Selecting a numeric value for a report, it defaults to Sum. It allows for changing to Average, Count, Min, Max... it should also support No calculation or as a value only.
