  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. scheduled export of a report to pdf

    It would be nice if there is an option to have a scheduled export of a report to PDF. A nice to have feature would be to directly e-mail it to people so they are being notified of the latest report.

    We recently announced the ability to schedule PDF attachments for Paginated Reports in Power BI (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/e-mail-subscriptions-for-paginated-reports-is-now-available/).
    We’re planning to have this ability for Power BI reports as well, but it will take time to put that feature in place.

    For folks asking about the ability to print/export the entire table of data to PDF or other format, we’ll be announcing shortly the ability to publish paginated reports using Power BI datasets, which would allow folks to create simple paginated report tables to use for this scenario, as it’s not currently possible to do this with Power BI reports natively at this time.

  3. Better Premium Capacity Usage report

    The current capacity usage report just shows Good/Marginal/Critical. This information does not help with troubleshooting or capacity planning. Request to have more detailed report (e.g., line graph) with historical data. This will help with troubleshooting issue if we see usage spikes or with capacity planning for growth trend.

  4. Custom Tooltips on Hover

    Custom "tooltips" when hovering over a point on a visual. Month after month, I am required to offer Analysis & Actions narrative for how we're performing. It would be nice to see this by hovering over a point on a visual rather than take up valuable real estate with a text box.

  7. Report Filter Doesn't Save

    I am not sure if this is known or not but with the recent report filter coming in, it doesn't save the filter when you exit out of the report unlike the page filters which save.

    If this is intentional would it be possible to have the option to save this filter.

  8. Provide sort for line graphs

    The sort feature is not available on line graphs, therefore visualising date charts is almost impossible the data is only displayed in volume descending order. I've had a customer turn away purely because they prefer line charts to bar charts...
