  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.

    Another update on this item – users now have the ability to set up scheduled subscriptions with paginated reports and 6 different formats, along with parameters per subscription to allow further personalization. There is also now the ability to create paginated reports against any Power BI dataset in the service, and we’re planning to add drillthrough from Power BI to Paginated Reports in the short term.

    We still have plans to support e-mail attachments for Power BI reports as well in the coming months, and we’ll share more specifics once we get closer to starting that work.

  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.

  6. allow url from one column to be specified as hyperlink for another column

    Suppose that I have a table that holds product information. One particular column (column A) has a URL value that points to the product page, while another column (column B) holds the product name.

    What I am suggesting is that we could customise a model so the URL of column A could be used to make column B (the product name) a hyperlink.

    This way if we present a table that in Power BI that shows product names, the product names would be clickable as a hyperlink. Then clicking on the hyperlink would open a browser window, which would show…

  8. SSRS Reports for drill down into detailed reports

    I think using SSRS type of reports to show detailed information that make up measures dispalayed on the dashboard would be useful. Currently I do that in performance point using actions from my tabular models. I think if that was included this would be a full replacement to performance point.

  9. 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.

  10. 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...
