  1. Dynamic Date Slicer (improve relative date slicer)

    This is a repost of my idea that was closed as completed, but the 'relative date slicer doesn't allow any of the described request hence my idea is not implemented....

    The new date slicer is awesome, but it would be so nice if you could set a dynamic date selection instead of a static. With a static filter the user will always have to set the dates before the saved report makes sense - especially as the report gets older.

    Dynamic options could be
    YTD, QTD, MTD, WTD, Today, This Year, This Quarter, This Month, This Week and so on.

    The relative date slicer (a Preview feature as of June ‘17) gets us close to this with the ’This Month’ or ‘This Year’ settings. That is a dynamic date selection that updates based on the current system date. We plan to add a ‘YTD’/‘MTD’ option to specifically select a range from the start of the month/year up to today, hopefully that’ll address the remaining requirements!

  2. Subscribe to email snapshots of reports in *specific filter/slicer states*

    Extend the email subscriptions feature, currently in public preview, to include support for email snapshots of reports in specific filter/slicer states.

    More information about the feature can be found here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/introducing-email-subscriptions-in-power-bi-stay-informed-when-it-matters/

  4. Add Folders To Organize Reports On PowerBI.com

    RIght now, on powerbi.com, there is no ability to organize reports, dashboards, etc into folders. If you have a lot of content or users, this gets messy quickly.

    Please add the ability to organize into folders (and secure those folders separately)

  5. Print and Export Embedded Reports through REST APIs

    Now that we have a great embed report/tile feature that can be used to embed reports/tiles in custom apps, it would be great to have some REST APIs that can facilitate printing and download of the reports into either PDF/Excel etc.

  8. Search my filter values in a dashboard

    I have 40,000 values in some of my core filters. Because the web UI only supports browsing through the filter values, I have to pre-filter each dashboard. I need the same search UI available in Excel filters.

    planned  ·  Julie Zhu responded

    Thanks for your feedbacks! We understand that advanced filter mode does not fully serve the need. We plan to add the search capability in. Stay tuned.

  10. Table Total visibility

    In a grid the totals appear at the end. This is very irrirtating.
    The body of the report should be scrollable and the total should always be visible. it is very important for the viewer of the report to confiem the completeness of the report before viewing the details.

  11. Discretisation

    I should be able to discretize (bucket) any of the measures dynamically. and the discretized labels should appear in the dimensions. So there should be something like 'calculated dimensions'.

  12. Updated PowerView editor in Excel

    For a consistent experience it is important that the existing PowerView ribbon in Excel 2013 is also updated to the one that we have in the PowerBI Designer.
